St. Ambrose Cellars

100% local honey, mead and Michigan grown wine. We have a wide selection of red and white wines along with our own estate meads. Come and sample Pure Michigan.

Reviewed By MATerry52 - Indianapolis, Indiana

Have known about St. Ambrose Cellars and had the opportunity to visit over Labor Day weekend. We were visiting with our niece who was checking out the facility and amenities for a possible wedding venue. Beautiful property, spacious with several building including a tasting room, barn for inside activities like dancing and wedding ceremony, and outdoor tables and games. The gardens were in full bloom and the bee hives were active and full of honey. We sat outside under an umbrella table by the bocce ball box and enjoyed a flight of four honey based drinks. The mead beverages were light, sweet and tasty and we will definitely return for more drink and food and who knows maybe a family wedding and reception.

This is a very nice drive in, it only shows up to PG, it has a very good food outlet, best to turn up early to get a good spot, but be prepared to wait a long time for the movie to start,

Gwen Frostic Prints

Tucked away on a wildlife sanctuary in northern Michigan is a shop built of native stones, glass, and wood. A building that brings the outdoors in and blends all nature in its structure. From the display room with its huge fireplace and natural fountain, one can watch as twelve Heidelberg presses print. We wish you could visit the home and wildlife sanctuary of World Renowned Artist Gwen Frostic, just to see the development of Gwen's single designs. Attuned to the spirit of nature, Gwen sketched flowers ~ birds ~ trees ~ grasses and other little things one finds ~ out where they grow and live ~ cut each linoleum block by hand for the notepapers ~ calendars and books to share with you the grandeur and wondrous simplicity of nature ~~~ its serenity ~~ and beauty. Gwen Frostic Block Printing and Nature Note Cards display her creativity just as well. Unique Shopping Experience!

We always stop by Gwen Frostic when we’re in the area. During our recent visit my wife stocked up on greeting cards and gifts, but I spent most of my time the way I always do -- watching the printing presses in action. It’s mesmerizing! I like it almost as much as staring into a campfire.

Arcadia Overlook

Reviewed By BlakievanHemert - Santa Barbara, California

Magnificent vistas from high up on the bluff overlooking the coastline and way out into Lake Michigan. It`s a great place to observe lake going vessels, hear the sound of the surf and especially to catch a stellar sunset.
It`s an easy and safe pull over off the highway.

Point Betsie Lighthouse

Reviewed By Don H

Takes a while to get out to this lighthouse but I would say it’s definitely worth the time invested. Nice beach to walk on and a great lighthouse to just stand and look at. My advice would be that you take a picnic lunch a blanket to sit on and just spend a couple hours enjoying the view of Lake Michigan

Crystal Mountain

Four-season family resort has lots to do on and off the slopes.

Reviewed By tgw51 - Lincoln, Nebraska

During the late 1970s, I was a member of the Central Michigan University Ski Club and skied at Crystal Mountain about once a week. (Heck, one very-long weekday trip there that ended at about 9:30 at night, I made 70 runs down "Loki" because the snow was so perfect that it was just too good to head for home! Really!!) But while I loved skiing at Crystal Mountain (especially since CMU Ski Club members got a big discount on their lift tickets), I never considered this ski resort to be in the same league as a place like Boyne Mountain. Well ... that was a long time ago! Today, Crystal Mountain Resort is every bit as "upscale" as Boyne Mountain ever was. When I saw the place recently, I could hardly believe my eyes! And it's truly a 4-season resort these days. I was there in early September, and the Loki Quad chairlift was operating to serve Michigan's only alpine ride, the "Crystal Coaster Alpine Slide." With two golf courses, hiking trails, mountain biking, a disc golf course, tennis courts, and a one-acre, outdoor water playground available, there's plenty to do for the entire family. Crystal Mountain has definitely entered the top tier of Michigan's resorts!

Elberta Beach

Reviewed By upnorth98 - Thompsonville, Michigan

This is one of the few places I have found to be able to do bonfires on the beach. The lookout up top is gorgeous, but take the drive down to the beach. There is a nice parking lot at the base of the hill. There is a road that travels south, but I've heard many a story of people getting stuck by slightly straying from the well packed road.

If you do plan on a bonfire, remember safety first. We always bring a large 5 gallon bucket with us that contains our fire starting supplies and serves as a way to extinguish the fire when done. Make sure it is well drowned and cool to the touch before leaving.

We REALLY enjoyed our visit to the Benzi Area Historical Museum. We spent an entire afternoon and must go back to see more. Our guide was knowledgable, helpful and very friendly. There's too much to see and learn in a short period of time. We had a personal guide for the two of us.

Pinecroft Golf Course

Reviewed By David K - Franklin, United States

We really enjoyed our two outings on this course. The course is hilly and wooded but not too challenging for average golfers. The greens were in perfect shape but tricky. The views were spectacular looking out at Crystal Lake, especially from the elevated 16th hole. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

A beautiful drive with scenic views. We went on a Friday, before the weekend rush. Imagine this will be super busy in a few weeks when the colors change.
