Lake Michigan’s spectacular vistas make this a resort unlike others. The color of the water–sometimes blue, sometimes turquoise, sometimes golden–is one reason why. Another is relaxing along the water. You and each member of your family or group can do as much or as little as you like.
That’s why this resort is celebrated, both near and far, as The Homestead, America’s Freshwater Resort.
Lake Michigan Resort
Though expansive, the resort is quite simple to picture.
It was designed, built and is managed to help you enjoy the Most Beautiful Place in America.
On its west are miles of sandy beaches on which you can walk for hours. The beaches are soothing by day, spectacular at sunset, remarkably romantic on starry nights. To its east is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the area chosen by the viewers of ABC’s Good Morning America as “The Most Beautiful Place in America.”
Within the resort, neighborhoods separated by nature provide a wide range of high-quality accommodations. Some are perfect for couples, some for families, and some for groups. All are beautiful. There are shops, restaurants, and recreational facilities. There are places for weddings, , and meetings. All of them are staffed by caring and attentive professionals.
You could be pampered at the spa or salon, sit by a pool, play a round of golf or hike in the National Lakeshore. Or, you could teach your kids to swim, play tennis or golf, ski or snowboard.

What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

We're so thrilled to feel the invigorating sunshine and the warmer air of spring in Petoskey. It's the season of rebirth, growth, and movement. Bikes have always represented such freedom and joy to us, and working on Mackinac Island inspired us to make them a big part of our daily lives. Enjoy these warmer days, air up those tires, and get out for a ride. To see the original painting, stop by latitude45 in Petoskey!

shermansdairy. Heaven. Best 🍦 in the midwest? Comment and prove me wrong👇
Hadn’t been to Sherman’s in probably 15 years, but man it might even be better than I remembered. Just packed with flavor, perfect mix-ins. My only complaint is I wish I had 2 (or 3, or maybe 6?) scoops of Mac Fudge! Doesn’t matter that we had 3 more hours to drive and the line took 25 minutes. Worth it every time.
Clockwise from top left, ranked:
6️⃣ Chocolate Malt Supreme: a little underwhelming. I think I wanted supreme chocolate and I got surpreme malt 😬
🥈 Grasshopper: expected this to be the big winner. It was amazing. It still wasn’t the winner but I’d crush this happily again.
5️⃣ Mint Chip: solid mint chip. But it has no business competing against grasshopper!
🥇 MAC FUDGE: I’ve had Mackinac Island Fudge flavors before, but the mix-ins here are just next level. It’s been weeks and I’m still thinking about it.
🥉 Chocosupreme: solid chocolate-chocolate-chocolate flavor. Sometimes too much chocolate can be a detriment and this was bordering, but it’s essentially grasshopper/mac fudge with chocolate base instead of mint or vanilla. How couldn’t it be good!?
4️⃣ Black Cherry: a little bit “artificial” on the cherry flavor, probably better off not right next to BIG flavors like the others I got. I liked it more until I had straight-from-the-farm cherry in Traverse City 😅
