This wonderful glamping site is located on the East Bay of Lake Michigan, right in between the lovely towns of Traverse City and Petoskey (about a 40-minute drive from each and 15 minutes south of Charlevoix), and it sits at the base of the Bay View Wine Trail for the glamping oenophile's enjoyment.

Guests will be as close to the water without getting wet in this A-frame surrounded by beautifully wooded natural areas. Along with all sorts of bird watching (think loons, seagulls, ducks, blue jays, oriels, and the occasional swan family), guests can feed the resident bunny rabbits and get plenty of opportunities to see deer and turkey when in season. Guests may even spot the bobcat who recently moved in (most likely due to the bunny rabbits).

Views of the Fox Islands and the Northport Lighthouse can be seen directly across the bay. After watching the sun paint a different color for guests every evening on the large lakeside deck, they will have their own private dark sky to enjoy by the campfire. The cabin is within range of several day trip destinations including the areas of Bellaire with it's famous brewery, Central Lake, Elk Rapids, and East Jordan. Torch Lake public access is right around the corner (made famous by the Kid Rock song "All Summer Long"). While guests may enjoy the solitude of a lakeside getaway, there are numerous restaurants and stores in the area, offering the perfect mix of country zen and urban living.

The surrounding area is full of countless activities to keep guests entertained throughout the duration of their stay. Guests may enjoy the provided kayaks and paddleboards for exploring the surrounding area by water. The beach at the glamping site is a great place for a walk, as interesting things such as Petoskey stones can be found there. Guests can see the Leelanau Peninsula and the backside of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore from just across the bay. This area holds an enjoyable dune hill climb that begins on the other side of the lake.

Wildlife such as eagles, deer, rabbits, turkeys, and hawks may be seen from the glamping site. The nearby town of Charlevoix offers a variety of entertainment options, ranging from outdoor activities to shopping and dining experiences. The cabin is also conveniently located to the Bay View Wine Trail, which offers several wineries that produce wine in the unique local micro-climate. For those interested in golf, there are several nice courses located nearby.

The site is close to a public access point to Torch Lake. Torch Lake is exceptionally beautiful due to its remarkable level of clarity which gives it a turquoise hue. Torch Lake and the other surrounding inland lakes such as Lake Charlevoix may offer more protection than the bay immediately outside the cabin on a windy day. There are also many opportunities for hiking and mountain biking on nearby trails. This glamping site offers guests the perfect opportunity to experience the outdoors or to simply relax and get away from their busy lives.
