Fresh, local produce and other specialty foods. They have fresh baked pies, or you can go right next door to The Cherry Hut for their pie and a plethora of cherry products.

The largest market on most people's way to the cottage. They carry some organic and natural foods, and a pretty stellar selection of wine, beer, cider, and liquor. There is also a pharmacy, craft, and hardware store connected.

Sightseeing

One of my favorite beaches and close to the cottage. Spectacular views of the dunes and a great place for a long walk or jog. Less developed than Platte Point. You can pick-up the Platte Plains trail here.

A short drive from the cottage, this beach also has terrific views of the dunes. Kids love to play in the creek that flows gently into Lake Michigan.

Drinks & Nightlife

A great place to grab a beer and some food, especially if you've just finished the dune climb nearby! It's tasty, casual, and friendly.

The pretzels with mustard are a good snack while sampling the many brews. They also have a tasty and reasonably priced dinner menu.

A fun place to play lawn games and catch some live music. At times they have had food trucks with good wood fired pizzas, but I think they've opened their kitchen--I have yet to try the fare. They offer it all: Mead, Wine, and Beer. I don't recommend the reds :(

Food Scene

TC-A must stop for you coffee lovers. I myself prefer a soy latte, and their honey latte in particular. You can take in the views of the Boardman River and a bit of Grand Traverse Bay from the deck.

A great place for lunch or a sweet treat. Go early for a homemade pretzel, or cream of asparagus soup. And they have the old school cake donuts!

My preference for nearby pizza, this location is in Frankfort. It doesn't have the 50s style diner ambiance of Papa J's, but it's tasty. There is also a location in Interlochen that one local recommends, and another in Beulah (although I prefer to skip the news that is constantly blaring at that location).

I've only had brunch so far, but the chicken and waffle was delicious. I plan to return to sample their cocktails as well.

Shopping

Looking for a sweet treat? In addition to chocolate, they have ice cream, fudge, and many other confections. My personal favorite: the dark chocolate cherry cordials.

Local crafters rent booths here. Mostly home goods, but also jewelry, bath and body, and some clothing. Primarily of the farmhouse/shabby chic variety.

Arts & Culture

Formerly the Northern Michigan Asylum, this space has rich history. There are many galleries and shops to peruse, or learn the history of Dr. Munson and his perspective that "Beauty is Therapy".
