There are current addresses for Karl (Alanson), Walleen (Petoskey) and Helen (Cheboygan). Fred passed away in 2011 at age 87 in Petoskey. He was married to Helen. From his obituary: “Upon retirement, Fred and Helen moved to Mackinaw City where they owned and operated several businesses including Bell’s Melody Motel, the Beachcomber Motel, the Tip of the Mitt Motel, the Dinner Bell, the Peppermint House and the Sail Inn Bar, all in Mackinaw City. He enjoyed water sports and spending time with his family.” Karl was his son.
Mom, Kirsten and I recently stayed in the Bell’s complex (read about our trip here). I love Bell’s. Best beach. Friendly staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Very reasonably priced. If you are looking for a true up north experience, you should check out Bell’s.
