Whether Traverse City is your destination or you plan to travel through the area on your way to/from the Upper Peninsula, it’s a fantastic vacation destination. Many people come to this part of Michigan to enjoy Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and sip on a few glasses of wine at top Michigan wineries – but there are so many more things to do in Traverse City that are just as fun, adventurous, and beautiful.

Aside from being a mecca for wine enthusiasts, the Traverse City area is a rich haven for outdoor enthusiasts. From the sparkling waters of the Grand Traverse Bay to the miles of hiking and biking trails throughout the surrounding peninsulas, you’ll have no trouble finding adventure. It’s also the cherry capital of the world, and aside from hosting the National Cherry Festival each summer, it is a great place to eat, drink, and pick all the cherries your heart desires.

These things represent a small fraction of the many things to do in Traverse City. We’d love to share our favorite parts of this incredible city – and the surrounding peninsulas – with you this year. Summer is peak travel time to our Traverse City Bed and Breakfast, and now’s your best chance to plan your vacation. Our Inn and winery is located about 15 minutes outside Traverse City on the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula and is the ultimate oasis in this breathtaking part of the state.

We have everything you need to enjoy your time here, too – lodging, onsite trails, an equestrian barn, wine tasting, a delicious restaurant, and exceptional hospitality. Don’t miss your chance to visit us this year. Book your room at our Traverse City Bed and Breakfast today! Read more
