Kirtland Community College offers many relevant areas of study including an Associates Degree in Creative Writing, which is very unique. They also have excellent entertainment programs throughout the year, and the campus is beautiful. I know many people who have received their degrees from Kirtland and also found good jobs. My interest in Kirtand is mainly in auditing classes since I already have my BA. The creative writing instructors are extremely proficient. Kirtland is not located next to any of the villages up here in Northern Michigan but is nestled in the outskirts of this pristne area. In spite of the harsh winters here Kirtland is easily accessible becuse the roads are well-maintained in winter. If you want a highly personalized educational experience in an awesome setting with excellent academic courses I recommend Kirtland Community College.
Flowers By Josie always has very pretty designs, the flowers are in great shape and last a long time, and the service is excellent. I enjoy ordering from them very much. The shop is upscale yet cozy in design. It is centrally located in Grayling and there is plenty of parking. I have received many floral arrangements from Josies and they were all lovely. The prices are a bit higher than other local florists but worth it. I have recommended this shop to several friends who were also quite pleased with the service and the beautiful flowers and plants.
I had to go here because of an upper respiratory infection that got worse after normal office hours. I saw a PA who treated me very well and the whole experience was quite stressless. Parking is plentiful, they have late office hours and the overall impression inside of the building was one of organization and cleanliness. I was told by a co-worker to go here for care and I would recommend it to all of my friends if they needed an urgent care facility after hours. It is on the main street which goes through Houghton Lake so it is easy to find. My experience was excellent, I did not have to wait long to check-in or be seen, and the PA who examined me was quite knowledgeale. All of the staff treated me with great kindness so I would return here again if I needed to.
Cindy Lous Petting Zoo has a nice variety of animals to see. It is a fun family place to visit. Being a petting zoo, the hands on experience makes it more personal. There is plenty of parking, it is easy to find on the outskirts of town. It is clean and the animals are healthy and are kept in well maintained enclosures. I went there just to get out and do something different. I would recommend it to friends. Since there are no other similar businesses like this in my area I have no way of comparing this place to any other petting zoo. It is an inexpensive outing and the owners are very sociable and the animals enjoy the attention.
With tobacco being taxed so high in MI this is one of the better places to buy cigarettes. They are really nice people and have just about everything you would need to roll your own too. They are conveniently located on the main road through Houghton Lake and there is plenty of parking. The overall impression I had of the store was pleasant: it is clean, organized and the staff is helpful and friendly. A friend told me I should go here, and I would recommend this store to other smokers as well.
Forwards has just about everything you might need while you are passing through town on vacation or if you live here and need snacks or a paper. Also there is an attached 24 hour McDonalds with a drive-thru that even accepts credit cards. I buy my gas there, it's a Shell Station. It is a very big place with ample parking and I think 8 pumps. Inside it is clean and the cashiers are always very nice. I go there because it is close to where I live and I can pay at the pump when I am in a hurry. I know alot of people who go there regularly too. You can get lottery tickets and beer here and they have a good selection of food items.
The Sandbar gift shop is packed full of beautiful and unique merchandise. I enjoy going there especially at Christmas time. Prices vary, and it is just alot of fun looking around in there. It is located right in downtown Roscommon so parking is not always available at the door. The store is very clean, well-stocked and the staff is friiendly and quite willing to help you in any way possible. It is so full of merchandise that it is a bit crowded to walk through in some spots in the store. It smells heavenly in there too from the potpourri and candles. I went there once looking for a journal which they didn't have but they told me to go to the office supply storewhich might have what I was looking for. This is a small town gift shop comparable to others in the area. I recommend it to all of my friends from downstate who come to visit me.
Bradleys is a small store, yet they carry some unique up north items that seem one of a kind. It is not a cheap place to shop, but definitely worth a trip in just to look around. I went in there during the Christmas in the Village festival in Roscommon. I couldn't afford anything they sell. They have no real parking you just have to parallel park along the main street somewhere. I would recommend this store to people who want unusual rustic furniture and have lots of money. The one customer service person was friendly and let me browse. They sell sealy mattresses and futons too. Mostly they carry log beds and tables, hunting and fishing themed accessories and upscale cabin type furnishings in general.
I bought a mattress here 3 years ago, and there was a large selection to choose from. They were very open minded about my payment methods, and delivered my mattress the next day. It is next door to Kronners Pharmacy, you park along the front of the building so there are plenty of parking spaces. You can see Houghton Lake from this location. They also have bedroom sets and chairs and lamps. I went there because I needed a mattress for my new apartmen in a hurry and I got my mattress in less than 24 hours of buying it. I would recommend it to everyone I know. I had to use 3 payment methods in order to buy my mattress that same day and the salesman had no problem with that. You can also finance your purchases there. I was not hassled or pressured when I ran in there in such a hurry. It is essentially a bed business so there isn't really any decor but it is clean in there and well lit so you are able to see everything clearly. As far as I know this is the only business like this in Houghton Lake specializing in mattresses so I cannot compare it to another place but my experience was fine there. The prices are not expensive so anyone on any budget could get a new bed here easily.
The owner spoke to me for quite some time concerning the legalities of cremation. I was very impressed with the detailed information I received. The community is well served by this business. It is located on M-18 just a bit south of downtown Roscommon. I have not had to bury someone up here so I do not have a personal experience as to using this funeral home formally. But I do know many people in this area who use Walsh and they recommend it highly. That was why I called to find out about cremation for myself, friends had spoken so well about this business that I felt comfortable calling to inquire about in depth cremation rules. It's also the only funeral home in Roscommon.
