The Holidays are right around the corner and soon the snow will be flying….it is time to plan your Up North getaway!
Snow means only 1 thing…..winter sports! Shanty Creek has it all from ski hills, monster snowboard park and the family friendly tubing park, and we are just 5 minutes the resort. Experience the cross country or snowshoe trails within the Grass River Natural Area, or Fat Tire mountain bike riding at the newly created Glacial Hills Pathway and Natural area in Bellaire. Need to rent a bike or a snowshoes? We highly recommend the great folks at Paddles & Pedals in downtown Bellaire! Mention your stay with us for a discount!
Winter is a great time to experience our amazing wineries, brew pubs, distillaries and restaurants in the region! We are only 35 minutes from the Leelanau Peninsula and Old Mission Wineries! Traverse City is your destination if you love to spend the day shopping, enjoying local restaurants, coffee shops or book stores. Great day trip…..Sleeping Bear Dunes is beautiful during the winter, they offer snowshoe hikes at the National Park on the weekends (snowshoes included).
Whether you are looking for an active outdoor getaway, week long vacation filled with amazing day trips, or an intimate weekend getaway, we have what you need. Make the most of your Up North Michigan getaway vacation, and consider the Applesauce Inn Bed and Breakfast as your home away from home.
Greet each morning with our amazing scratch made breakfasts that feature seasonal and local ingredients (including eggs from our own chickens and garden produce from our back yard). They have become something of a legend that you surely do not want to miss! Come home each evening to a home made dessert and a glass of Traverse City local wine or locally made Bee Well Ciders (May-Oct).
Our commitment to you is that whether you have stayed in a bed and breakfast before or not, you will be comfortable here, you will leave relaxed and you will be making plans to return!
