A historic Inn located on the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore will begin renovations in anticipation of a reopening next summer.

 

The Sleeping Bear Inn was built in the mid-1860’s and closed to the public in the 1970’s.


Recently, the National Parks Service announced they would be leasing the property to the nonprofit, Balancing Environment and Rehabilitation or BEAR. 

 

Maggie Kato, President of BEAR, spoke with IPR’s Kendra Carr about the project.
