Breakfast or Evening Sunsets
Downtown Alden is a charming little town. The Muffin Tin is well known for their incredible muffins and quiche. The Alden Mill House is a well known locally for their house made spices and any kitchen utensils. In the evening, enjoy wine tasting and the amazing sunsets over Torch Lake. Crushin it has their house made local wines that are extremely delicious and reasonably priced!

Hoppin Little Town-young & old
This town has so much to offer. Plenty of local shops, bars and great restaurants! If you want to take a nice scenic bike ride or walk on never ending trails. This town has everything without any stress!
Shorts Brewery is recognized throughout the USA but their food is amazing as well. You will want to call ahead and make reservations. The Corner Bistro is a must. I love their sliders w/ the best French fries. If a fancy dinner is something you are interested in, Terrain is the place to go. This place does not open until 5:00 but it is worth the wait. I love everything.

Family/Park/Picnic
This beautiful town is a perfect whole day beach trip without the business of Traverse City. In Elk Rapids, they have a clean, big beach with plenty of parking. Perfect for families. Town is within walking distance with many choices for good food. I love walking around and looking at all the unique things this town has to offer. Shorts brewery is here as well but on a much smaller scale. Ethanology is a must to visit! One of my favorite places. The Walk of Art and bike trails are fabulous!

Skiing/Golfing/Fishing/Hunting/Snowmobiling
We have so many different attractions up in Northern Michigan besides the beauty and peacefulness. In the summer it is all about Torch Lake, the beaches and Traverse City. In the fall it is all about the beautiful changing colors of the trees. In the winter it is about hunting, snowmobiling on our beautifully groomed trails and skiing. And in the spring we fish and hunt for morel mushrooms.
