99 things to do in winter in Michigan while staying at a B&B
Full disclosure: We didn’t actually count the number of things to do in winter in Michigan, but if you let yourself be guided by the B&Bs listed on this page, you’ll discover at least 99 good ideas all over the state.
First, if cold weather triggers the impulse to snuggle, let it be in a place with no interference from your winter to-do list or the demands of work or family.
Let it be in a place where you can relax and reconnect.
Let it be in a place that offers privacy, dreamy linens, and maybe a jetted tub — and in the morning, coffee from freshly ground beans, and a breakfast you’ll photograph before digging in.
Many Michigan B&Bs offer romance packages and most innkeepers will customize them to suit your preferences. Check out these ideas.
If the prospect of fresh-fallen snow inspires you to seek the hushed and pristine solitude of a state park or national forest, lash the skis to your Chevy. But first, book a room at a B&B with a
fireplace in either your guest room or in a welcoming living room, or both.
A franchise hotel is going to send you out in the morning with a toaster waffle and watered-down orange juice. You’ll get a full, hearty breakfast at one of these B&Bs, all included.
Did you know that some B&Bs lend snow shoes and other equipment? Other innkeepers might be able to recommend a place that offers horse-drawn sleigh rides or a place that rents fat tire bikes so you can venture forth on one of Michigan’s many wonderful rail trails.
From snow boarding in Northwest Michigan (choose a Traverse City-area B&B) to snow shoeing in the Hiawatha National Forest (stay in Gladstone)…
… you’ll find so many things to do in winter in Michigan if you strap on your boots, bundle up, and get out there to explore.
