'SUMMER TIME AND THE LIVIN IS EASY!' (Louis Armstrong – 1969) Experience some of the best golf in the World! While you are at it, don't forget to experience 'UP-NORTH', not just a place but, a State-of-Mind! Our 'Beaux Chalet' is new and in the perfect location, nestled between Boyne Highlands golf and ski resort and Nub's Nob ski resort. Literally surrounded by world class golf, sandy beaches, boating, fishing, gambling (Odawa Casino), hiking and, for the ladies, some of the most interesting gift shopping in the Midwest. Make reservation to see the “Young American” perform at the Highlands – great show for the whole family! And, if you are a mountain biker, a first class single track trail is located directly behind our house – great starting and end-point.
For you history buffs - Mackinac City and the Island are full of historical treasurers. Watch the re-enactment of soldiers preparing to do battle around the 1800's. Collect a souvenir and treat yourself to some real Mackinaw Fudge (I can't get enough!).
For you psychic ones, visit some of the haunted restaurants and hotels in the Harbor Spring/Petoskey area. I’m sure your visit will be “enlightening”.
