Northern Michigan Vacations: MyNorth Media and Traverse Magazine brings its followers a plethora of fantastic prizes and contests. The time has come for us to announce the winner of one of our most exciting contests so far, an all expense paid vacation for four to Northern Michigan's Mount Bohemia Adventure Resort, located trailside in the beautiful forests of the Upper Peninsula. And the winner is (drumroll please)…. Rhonda S. from Elkhart, Indiana! Like most of us, Rhonda loves Northern Michigan and can't wait for this new adventure Up North. We chatted with Rhonda to see how she feels about this exciting news. 

Have you been to the Upper Peninsula before?  

Yes.  When I was in my early teens my grandparents owned a cabin in Newberry on Pike Lake.  I visited there a few times.  Most recently, my husband and I traveled to Pictured Rocks and fell in love with the area. 

What's your favorite vacation memory of summers in Northern Michigan?

We spent many years renting a cabin at Mac’s Landing in Arbutus Lake near Traverse city Michigan.  Typically, 3 or 4 friends and their families who have kids the same age as ours would meet us and we’d all spend the week together, cooking, enjoying the fires, fishing, swimming, just having a great time!

What encouraged you to enter the contest?

Why not? It looks like a great place to visit! I love MyNorth!  I use it to check out events that we might want to attend, find great recipes, shop, etc. and I just found this great contest there, so entered.

Who will go with you on your vacation?

My companion in the great adventure of life – my husband of 33 years.

What are you looking forward to doing at the Mount Bohemia Resort?  

Everything!  We’ve recently taken up kayaking, and we love it.  We also ride bikes on occasion, and relaxing on the beach sounds great too.

If your name is not Rhonda S. and you are not from Elkhart, Ind., that's ok! Your chance to win an awesome vacation is not gone yet! Enter here to win an exciting Northern Michigan Vacation for next summer at one of six amazing locations. Enter here!
