Whether you want your northern Michigan experience to include the solitude of pine-scented forests, the awesome beauty of Lake Michigan and dozens of other smaller lakes, pampering at a health club and spa, relaxing by the pool, walking on the beach, golfing championship courses, or traversing trails on foot, bike, or snowmobile, you will find it all when you choose Grand Traverse Resort Village. And that's just the beginning. Start the day with a game of tennis, or get out on the "big lake" for some mind-blowing fishing on one of the area charter boats. If it's winter, you'll have your choice of many downhill ski slopes as well as cross-country trails so scenic you will have to drag yourself away. Not far away are casinos, horseback riding, unique shopping opportunities, and interesting villages to explore. The Traverse City area is a major producer of cherries, and the cherry festival in July is a reason in itself to be "up north."
Another beautiful resort is The Inn at Bay Harbor. Step back into Turn of the Century architecture and experience true inspiration from one of the World's Best Resorts. The Inn at Bay Harbor exudes serenity and sophistication to vacationers looking to experience all Lake Michigan has to offer. The resort offers 1, 2, or 3 bedroom suites for those looking for a romantic getaway, girlfriends' weekend away, or simply a fun family vacation destination. The cottage/renaissance atmosphere allows guests to be comfortable in the elegant resort. You can spend you day golfing at on of the 45 holes offered by the resort, or spend your day defining relaxation at the Spa at the Inn at Bay Harbor. Guests can also spend the day at the outside swimming pool or enjoying Lake Michigan by skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, boating, or jet skiing.
