The Destination
If there's a single place for the quintessential Michigan experience, it's probably Hillman. Four hours north of Detroit, this small town revels in its iconic vistas of elk-laden fields and thick, woodsy forests that bubble with excitement year round—from top-rated sleigh rides in winter to scenic, breezy hikes in summer. A smattering of crystalline lakes shimmer across this region that has become something of a hot spot for foodies and wine enthusiasts due to a budding restaurant scene and a bevy of local wineries.

The Digs
The care shown to Thunder Bay Resort's greens is evident throughout its facilities. Cozy condo-style units are nestled among sturdy hardwoods, sleek birches, and lush marshes and includes fireplaces, living rooms, decks, and often whirlpool tubs. Getting lost on a cross-country trail seems like exactly the sort of thing to pin on this blissful Northeastern Michigan wilderness, where you can observe surreal views as you hike and bike through the resort's 500 picturesque, wooded acres. In fact, you'll want to bring your cameras and capture majestic Elk during your excursion through the private elk preserve.

The Diversions
• Placate your palate to wine tasting tour on the Sunrise Side Wine & Hops Trail
• Experience a showcase of Northeast Michigan's artists, scientists, and historians at Besser Museum
• Take a tour of Great Lakes shipwrecks at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary
• Climb aboard a horse-drawn sleigh and have a peak at wild elk year-round.

  • "My husband and I just spent three-and-a-half months at Thunder Bay Resort. It was an outstanding destination. The golf course is excellent, the flowers and landscaping were beautiful, and the staff [was] friendly and helpful."
