Carraige House Messenger - Autumn 2012

With its laid back, easy cadence it’s easy to fall into the intoxicating rhythm of autumn at the Carriage House. The cornucopia of colors always reminds me of a hearty vegetable soup. Bradley, my youngest son, took the amazing photograph of fall trees reflecting in the lake

Typically South Haven has an extended fall season, it can even be sweater weather for Thanksgiving. Come and sip hot chocolate, sit by one of our 15 fireplaces, take a refreshing walk, go antiquing or to the wineries and be sure to eat your share of pumpkin pie this season!
