If you’re looking for a family-owned, friendly stop in the UP, try Mackinaw Trail Winery. The scenery is particularly spectacular in the falls, when the hills are awash in color, but the wine is good any time of the year. Not so into wine? There’s also an onsite brewery, so fresh beer is always being poured. There’s a limited food menu, a friendly bartender and a really sweet dog – definitely something for everyone in your party.

Crooked Tree Arts Center

Distance: 2 miles from hotel

A church built in 1890 houses the Crooked Tree Arts Center, which was created to support a cultural movement in Petoskey.

Nearly 45 years later, the CTAC has developed an outstanding visual and performing arts program that has a reach well beyond the neighborhood it was originally designed to serve. Stop in and take a look at the displays; if you can, support the artists by making a purchase!

Crooked Tree Golf Course
