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.
