Spend your vacation days relaxing, reconnecting with nature and exploring the scenic State Forest beauty along Island Lake.
As you explore the Island Lake waters, you’ll find the island which gives the lake its name. On the island, you can even catch a glimpse of an active Bald Eagle's nest, established 3 years ago!
The property offers easy access to various trail systems running throughout the State Forest, so you can spend days exploring the beautiful wildlife by foot or bike.
For a cultural experience away from the forest, drive about 20-minutes to downtown Traverse City, which rests against the West Arm Grand Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan.
Finish your vacation by treating yourself to a day out on the town. Grab a craft beer at North Peak or The Workshop Brewing Company, check out the National Cherry Festival, enjoy dinner at Georgina’s then see a show at the City Opera House.
