Bright Lane Gardens Property
Owners Nick & Anna Ohler

Today, the property is owned by Nick & Anna Ohler. They are lovers of plants, the water, and everything that makes Northern Michigan a special place.

The Ohler’s were looking for the right opportunity to open a business in the community. After discovering Bright Lane, it was hard for them to stop dreaming of the possibilities! Purchased in August of 2019, there was a lot of work to be done and adjustments to be made. However, they are eager to share this unique place and discover what can be accomplished here.

The planned opening of the business (and life in general) has been interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the opening of the Gift Shop and Water Gardens is being postponed. Soon, the Water Gardens will be available for guests to enjoy and our Gift Shop open to browse. For now, Bright Lane Gardens is offering curbside pickup of Nursery Plants from online orders.
