Best Wine Country Hotel

Last year, with your support, the Inn at Black Star Farms was awarded USA TODAY’S Readers’ Choice for Best Wine Country Hotel! We are honored to be nominated again and humbled to be in the company of the other stunning properties in California, Oregon, New York, and Texas wine countries. The one thing that sets our wine country apart is the sparkling freshwater that surrounds us. Combine that with our warm Northern Michigan hospitality, endless four-season outdoor activities, and thriving food scene, and you can see why the Traverse Wine Coast has become a popular destination for those near and far.

Show your support of Black Star Farms by casting your vote today and every day until August 2, 2021!
