Woods Restaurant – Mackinac Island

There is something so special about the scenic ride out to The Woods for dinner. It is a magical two-mile trek from downtown. Tucked between the Inn at Stonecliffe and the back 9 of The Jewel, Grand Hotel’s golf course.

You’ll want to arrange your transportation ahead of time. Walk or ride bikes past the West Bluff through the Annex for the most beautiful route. To schedule a carriage call Mackinac Island Carriage Tours to reserve a taxi or for The Woods Shuttle, a carriage with scheduled pick-up times on Main Street in front of the Star Line Dock.

Along Cudahy Circle, high atop Mackinac Island’s West Bluff, you will find two classic Tudor mansions. The largest is The Inn at Stonecliffe, Mansion and Suites; a summer staple for weddings and sweet romantic getaways.

Next door, you will find Woods Restaurant with its beautiful opulent exterior and colorful Bavarian charm. The Woods Restaurant is the epitome of romantic dining experience, with its unbeatable character and ambiance.

One foot in the door and you begin to absorb the true experience. Inspired by a Swiss hunting lodge in the interior, you are greeted by a warm inviting fire as aromas fill the air. Woods Restaurant offers a truly special dining experience, tapping into all five senses.

Arrive a little earlier than your reservation time to enjoy a drink and fresh popcorn at Bobby’s Bar. Be sure to try your luck at America’s oldest operational Duck Pin Bowling Alley.

Be seated in the Gingham adorned main dining room, alongside a cozy fireplace and enjoy the nightly piano performance. For an all-natural setting, choose the outdoor patio to be among flower blossoms and feel the island breeze.

Reservations here are a must, as this tops Mackinac Island Restaurants. Each beautiful dish, served alongside a warm friendly welcome. Fine German cuisine with seamless presentation, has you leave feeling like family.

Where is Scotland, USA? It’s Alma, Michigan!

Where and what is Scotland, USA, you say?… Let me tell you all about Alma – Scotland USA!
In the middle of everything is Alma, Michigan, otherwise referred to as Scotland, USA! That’s what the sign says, that’s what we stick with and that’s what we celebrate! Now is a great time to mention, if you haven’t been to a Highland Festival yet, it’s time you go!

Michigan Festivals: Alma Highland Festival and Games – Alma, Michigan

For as long as I can remember, I looked forward to the time when Alma came alive to the sound of bagpipes. As a child, it wasn’t uncommon to hear a bagpiper practicing off in the distance while playing at the many parks in town. And we were always looking forward to the annual Highland Festival and Games each Memorial Day Weekend!


What to See on Your Visit to Shepherd, Michigan

See why the Village of Shepherd is the sweetest little town anywhere around. What may be surprising is Shepherd’s History, it’s rich and interesting.

Fun fact: The village was actually named known as Salt River through the 1800’s, then changed to Shepherd, after a notable man in town. So keep reading to see why you should stop by Salt River Park!

A drive through Shepherd in early Spring, you will see signs of Maple Syrup all around town! Maple Bush trees are tapped around every corner! It’s a village wide event.

What to See on Your Visit to Clare, Michigan

Clare has a rich history that goes back much further than my memories recall. In the 1800’s it was busting with railroad activity.

My grandpa was a farmer, and my ancestors were Amish, so I have been attending Amish events and frequenting Amish owned businesses since I can remember. I even remember attending concerts at the Clare County Fairgrounds, I got Willie Nelson’s autograph there when I was 10 years old.
