Letters From You

Mackinac Makeover

While the story called “Island Living” (Summer 2014), about the home I live in, looked great online, it’s even better in the magazine. Congratulations on a wonderful story that accurately portrays the history of Stroh Cottage and where it is today.

I am very proud to work for Grand Hotel and to call Stroh Cottage my home, and you captured that in your article beautifully. The photographer (Jeff Garland) did a wonderful job with the photography.

We received the Summer 2014 Detroit Home magazine at the office, and it’s stunning. I swear, I want to read everything (the pool story, the Mackinac story, the gardens stories, the candle piece, etc.)!

Bravo — this belongs on shelves nationally!

Lilac Lover

I absolutely love the Editor’s Letter in the Summer 2014 issue. So right-on with the sentiments of the past … it gave me goose bumps. The part about lilac bushes reminded me … about 10 years ago, I planted lilacs along Hickory Grove. What a treat they are.
