Our Story


It all started when...

Growing up, our family would pile in the car and drive to the Big Lake every chance we got.  Still do. Wherever we are in Michigan, we can get to a Great Lake in eightyfive miles or less. That got us thinking. What else is within reach?  So we founded Eightyfive Miles to find out.  This is definitely going to be the road trip of our lifetime! 

We're starting our journey with lifestyle products that reflect our love of the lake, our appreciation for natural beauty, honest materials, and classic forms.  We value having fun and making memories that will last a lifetime.  And we believe good times deserve great details.  For us, eightyfive is more than a number - it's a measure of what moves us.  

Our eightyfive is the lake.  What's your 85?
