Many B&Bs are near treasured natural wonders in Michigan
The purest of Pure Michigan experiences is to witness the beauty of Mother Nature — dunes, sunrises, mountains, forests, lakes, and cliffs — but did you know that so many natural wonders in Michigan are located near equally beautiful bed and breakfasts?
Let’s take our fine Upper Peninsula #MichBnB inns. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is 90 minutes from Big Bay Point Lighthouse B&B, overlooking Lake Superior. And Dapple-Gray B&B overlooks Lake Superior at the tip of the always-picturesque Keweenaw Peninsula.
Lower Michigan is loaded with natural beauty, too, and with nearby B&Bs to make your home base.
All B&Bs listed in Glen Arbor, Empire, and many in Traverse City are near Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Or make a day trip from inns in Onekama or Manistee. Sleeping Bear gets all the publicity, having once been voted the “most beautiful place in America” in a nationwide contest. But…
…they aren’t the only dunes on Michigan’s west coast:
With 2.5 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and dunes over 200 feet tall, Saugatuck Dunes State Park attracts many people staying at B&Bs in Saugatuck, Douglas, Holland, and Fennville, among other towns with welcoming bed and breakfasts.
