Stop and look at the wonderful buildings and beautiful grounds of the Dekoven Center, by Lake Michigan. There are classes of arts- including Tai Chi classes. Wonderful groups of friendly and inviting people.

This facility could use a good renovation. The grounds are beautiful and the location across the lake is breathtaking. The room that was rented for a gathering was less than ideal and the pool was some major repairs.
