Michigan Resort
Best of The Best Listings

Looking for a great Michigan resort? There are quite a few good resorts to choose from and many are by the water. In fact, anywhere in Michigan you are never more than about 10 km from the water. Lake Huron is one of the largest fresh water lakes worldwide and connects to Lake Superior via the Mackinac Bridge.

Many resorts around the water in Michigan tend to be very outdoorsy, cozy and often have a camp-like feel to them. Others are contemporary upscale luxury options with a golf course or two. 

Here you'll find a listing of our tops resorts in the 4 categories below plus a link to more resorts in that category. If you know which category you want, go ahead and go straight to the page by clicking here.

Michigan Beach Resorts 
(Click here to the Top Resorts)

Michigan is one of the most beach and sand dune rich states making it a great spot for beach resorts! The golden Michigan coastline is generally set around two peninsulas.

Traverse City on the lower peninsular in the north west of the state and is home to a good deal of popular beach resorts. Sleeping Bear dunes is also in this area. Perhaps a bit surprising is the hip wine and artsy attractions scene that exists in the Area. 

Top Upscale Resort:
The Grand Hotel Michigan

At the junction of the two huge lakes is Mackinac Island. Set in the waters separating Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas, Mackinac offer a unique place of refuge in a most interesting and famous resort. All you will find here for transportation is a horse and cart and the shoes you are wearing as you are transported back to the founding days of centuries ago.
