Camp True North

There’s a revitalization taking place within the True North Estates Association being led by a nationally distinguished architectural design firm that has resulted in one of the most ambitious projects ever in the region.

True North has long been a destination hotspot and luxurious golf getaway location in Michigan. Now it can be home via Camp True North, a project authorized by and for the enjoyment of the True North Lot Owners Association that includes 15 cabin lots that overlook the pond and trails in addition to a wide variety of camping-style amenities and activities.

The Camp True North project is being headed by John Sather of Swaback Partners, an award-winning agency based in Phoenix that specializes in architectural design, community planning and interior motif.

Sather, who was a student at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, has helped design some of the most unique communities and buildings in the country, including Kohler Village (the world headquarters of the Kohler Company), Martis Camp in Lake Tahoe and Promontory in Park City, Utah.

“Camp True North was established as a result of the rejuvenation of the True North Estates Association,” said owner Fritz Duda. “John Sather authored the plan at the site of the large pond just west of the driving range and has created a camp-like common area for what he terms ‘life after golf.’ This center core is a world-class trout pond and water amenity, along with a trail system.”

The vision of Camp True North recalls the long tradition of family camps that were established in the early part of the 19th Century – the kind of family-oriented camping experience that offers a wide array of recreational activities, all in the great outdoors.

The Cottages

Elegant comfort greets members and their guests in The Cottages at True North — just a short stroll from the clubhouse, and adjacent to the short game practice facility and driving range. Constructed in response to requests to both play and stay on the property, each cottage features a distinctive decor to make a visit to True North a truly memorable one.

Beautifully designed and landscaped to complement the serene setting of the northern woods. Several cottages are one-level and are built in the classic golf quad arrangement, featuring four bedroom suites. Each suite has two queen sized beds with a private bathroom. Others are bi-level with two suites and common areas up as well as down. Each unit has a private entrance or can be combined depending upon how many guests.

All cottages have luxurious common areas and a host of amenities: Flat screen televisions, Bose stereo systems, fireplaces, kitchens with the comforts of home, and screened porches to allow for some kick back time in a comfortable setting.
