This day full of nostalgic treasures begins with an included, three-course early lunch with choice of entrée at the nostalgic North Woods Inn. While known for their plentiful meals, yummy cheese bread, and “snow” on the roof, what sets North Woods apart is the uniqueness of its décor – warm and woodsy with stained glass, oil paintings and period lamps. This afternoon we continue to the Nethercutt Collection, showcasing rare collectibles and lavish luxuries ranging from mechanical musical instruments and antique furniture to the true heart of the collection: over 250 American and European automobiles dating from 1898 to 1997. This world-renowned “treasure house of beauty” is a result of J.B. Nethercutt’s lifetime of collecting and the means to do so as the owner of Merle Norman cosmetics. A docent-guided tour of the Nethercutt Collection will showcase treasures spanning four floors including an outstanding assortment of beautifully restored antique, classic automobiles – displayed in an opulent re-creation of an automotive grand salon of the 1920's and 1930's. The Music Room displays a world-class collection of automated mechanical instruments – ranging from tiny musical pocket watches to the mighty Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. And perhaps the most amazing part: from the cars to the instruments, they all work! Enjoy time at leisure browsing the Nethercutt Museum featuring the world’s greatest antique, vintage, classic and special interest automobiles including many top winners of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Just imagine row after row of beautifully restored classic cars dating back to the earliest days of automotive greatness. Outside the museum is a steam locomotive and an historic, 1912 Pullman private train car – resplendent in its Royal maroon, gold leaf, gloss black and brushed stainless steel livery, it is a testament to the grand era of train travel. This tour involves moderate walking.
