No Retreat or Facility fees. Enjoy good company, to get to know your Vajra Brothers & Sisters better, in a beautiful region of lakes, forests, in Nature. Recommended by Longchenpa, a little time in the wildwoods/forest will do you some good J. Choice of 30 excursions/day trips, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, nature trails, cycling, river trips, and miles and miles of sandy uncrowded beaches on Lake Michigan. Of course, everyone is free to just stay and enjoy our region - it is a hidden gem.
