That's a wrap with two "Toast of the Season" Wine Weekends
What a wonderful way to end the 2019 calendar. A houseful of guests the first two weekends in November shared laughs and tall tales, three cozy nights, two dinners, and Saturday with a chauffeured van to 6 wineries and a distillery on the Leelanau Peninsula.

It would be our pleasure to plan a special weekend like this for you, too, during the Vintners 2020 "All Rose May" or "Hunt for Reds of October". Never too early to make a plan , especially as you see friends and family over your holidays. A group of 16 just booked with us for a September weekend to take the full house and do exactly that. We are here to assist you imagine a custom Friends or Family Package.

What better holiday gift?
Gift certificates are available in any amount for a stay at the inn or cottages. Have someone who simply MUST share our 5 Star experience? We know, it is hard right now to picture Pierce Stocking Drive or a walk on the beach or a winery patio in summer. But it will return, as special as ever. Call us at 231-334-6789 o r email us now and we’ll take care of details for that special gift.
Contributing to the joy and grace of the holidays
We’re committed to volunteering, taking community leadership roles, and donating through the inn’s Community Support Fund, to enhance the wonder of our community:
The Glen Arbor Holiday Marketplace at the Township Hall , led by our owner, punched above its weight last year Thanksgiving weekend with 1,700 guests browsing the booths of 28 amazingly talented artisans and Santa, too. The goal this year: Exceed this number, sure that everyone leaves with at least one very special work for gift or home. Such a rewarding contribution to the community. Just look at some of the terrific pieces that are offered.  

 Our Community Support Fund contribution
to the Empire Food Bank affords turkey and all accompaniments for local families during the
holidays. Time to dig deep and share our good fortune.
An early snow storm hit Glen Arbor and it was a whopper! Must show you the downfall you fortunately missed. Monday, November 11th, 33 inches of unseasonable snow fell . Good thing we ended the season and sent everyone safely home just the day before. Look at this.
Lastly, can't resist sharing the best of our Trick-or-Treaters among the SIX HUNDRED that came to the inn on Sunday, October 27th. Every year the Chamber of Commerce sponsors this happening - and wow, this year did it ever happen! Seems long ago now, doesn't it? But hard to forget the many who
walked up our steps, including Dorothy and her Friends: the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Wicked Witch.

As always, can't end without a recipe
