Michigan Winter Getaway


"The Cedar Lake Lodge" is not just your weekly summer vacation destination, but also offers many options for weekly, and Weekend Vacations in Michigan, for fall, winter, and spring.

Here are just a few ideas! 
Click on links below for area info, and four seasons of Fun!

Fall Color Tours - Take a drive, pick up cider, and donuts. Hike the woods, and take in the breathtaking fall colors. Enjoy Fall festivals, Pumkin carving, punkin chuckin, parades, and more! Click on Benzie/Leelanau/Traverse links for more info.

 Hunting - Spend your Hunting Season in Style! Close to acres of state land for the fall turkey, and deer hunting seasons.

 Fishing - Fall & Spring is the time for lake, or stream fishing. Winter, for ice fishing, right from "The Cedar Lake Lodge".

 - Downhill, or cross country skiing -  Cross country from the "The Cedar Lake Lodge", or take a short drive to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, Holiday Hills, for a day on the slopes. Or Timberlee for snow tubing.

 - Snowmobiling -  For those of you that need a motor to bust the snow drifts and carve the white powder you can leave right from "The Cedar Lake Lodge", and ride miles of seasonal roads, and groomed trail systems.

 - Wine Tours - Tour the many local award winning wineries in Northwest Michigan. Set up a Wine Tour Shuttle, they will pick you up at your door, and drop you back off. 

 - Shopping - Especially Christmas Shopping! It doesn't get any better than the Grand Traverse Region. Quaint Towns, with snow flakes, and Christmas lights. Full of unique shops, and cozy warm restaurants. We even have most of the Big Chain stores, with only a fraction of the traffic, and crowds. Turn your holiday shopping experience from a yearly holiday chore, into a Norman Rockwell painting. 

 - Spring Break - Yeah, thats right, Spring Break. Okay, so most people go south, but you don't know how many times a blast of spring reaches these northern regions. Its like nowhere on earth. What better place to spend those first 60, and 70 degree days, but on the deck of "The Cedar Lake Lodge" kicking back on a chaise, or in the bell tower of "The School House Cottage", windows open enjoying the panorama. Not to mention our April SpecialThree nights, for the price of Two! Since we specialize in last minute bookings, when the weather's looking good, give us a call, and we'll get you in no problem!

Maybe it is the Northern Lights you are hoping to catch.  These most often occur from September to October and from March to April.  In Northern Michigan, they often appear as white lines in the sky towards the North.  They seem like they are a glow from a distant city, but if you watch them - they move.
