I know where this place is!!!! It's right down the road from me!! It's beautiful Krista and Shelby! As far back as I can remember it was owned by Dave Begle, then Pete Fisher. My mom knows who owned it before Dave Begle did, but I can't remember their names. However, it looks nothing like it did when I was a kid growing up.

Bois Blanc Island girl ....

Many moons ago my Uncle Fred owned this place .. He was my Grandpa Calkins brother ...

All the years I spent on the Island when I looked at this home .. I thought of Uncle Fred ...
Mom will be coming on down from her home in alaska .. I will ask more about it .. I remember some neat stories .....

For those who haven't visited Shelby and Christa yet, I just wanted to let you know you are in for a treat. I could write pages about it, but suffice to say Insel Haus is a wondrous place. You would be hard-pressed to find a nicer B & B anywhere in the country and, thanks to their hard work, we have it right here on Bois Blanc.

Thank you, Shelby, for a spectacular time. I enjoyed our conversations, the house itself and the fact that such a place exists on my favorite spot in the world.
