A-one-of-kind place to create a fun and memorable one-of a-kind Wedding.

Let's talk about the weather.

The first question your friends and family are going to ask is "What are you going to do if it rains?" I think that just for the "fun and shock value" you should answer that question with "then we'll call the whole thing off and go our seperate ways. It just wasn't meant to be." But that's just my sense of humor.

Our Back-Up Plan 

Let's talk about the drive.

The first complaint you are going to hear is "Oh, that's so far away." The answer to that is: "No it isn't." You can get to the Mackinac Bridge faster than you can get to Traverse City, Charlevoix and Petoskey from most of Southeastern Michigan.

Come visit us and see what fun your wedding could be.  

Where can my guests stay?

Up to 30 friends or family members can stay at our place. The rest of your guests can stay in any of the 1500 hotel and motel rooms within 8 miles of us.

Your wedding will be an adventure and a vacation for your guests.
