Built in 1878, the Red Fox Inn was one of the first homes built in the area. It was later converted into a restaurant, and Hemingway recounted his drive from the Inn to his family's cabin on Walloon Lake after his wedding in his book On Writing.

Today, the Red Fox Inn also features a bookstore that specializes in Hemingway titles and memorabilia.

For the first twenty-two summers of his life, Ernest Hemingway would spend the summers at his family cottage on Walloon Lake in northwest Michigan, nicknamed "Windemere."

Here is where Ernest learned to hunt and fish from his father, and where he began to write fiction.

The Ernest Hemingway Cottage was added to the National Historic Landmark and Register list in November of 1968. Today, the cottage is on private land and is not accessible by the public.

Ernest Hemingway was born in this home on July 21, 1899 to Clarence Edmonds Hemingway (a physician) and Grace Hall-Hemingway (a musician).

The family lived in the home until Ernest was six years old, in the same conservative community as architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

In 1992, the home was purchased by the Ernest Hemingway Foundation, who redesigned the home to reflect the period of the Hemingways residence. Today, the home is open for tours and features many artifacts from the family's life there.
