There are over two hundred bed and breakfasts in both the rural and urban areas of this gorgeous Great Lake state of Michigan. You won’t be short of cozy, architecturally unique places to stay. If you like mission style furniture, antique tiffany lamps and cozy quilts then you are going to love a little stay in this relaxing natural and pastoral state.


Michigan is full of elegant inns bed and breakfasts, many of them historical gems that are located in the smaller towns around the ski resorts or on the shores of Lake Michigan.  Typical is the Hotel Frankfort which is a 150-year old bed and breakfast located in Beulah or the Victorian Villa Bed and Breakfast in Union City. If there is anything that Michigan bed and breakfasts are prized for it is their quaint architecture which is often referred to as being “gingerbread Victorian” in style.  Some of the architecture in Michigan small towns goes back as far in time as the late 1700s when America was first being settled.


Most Michigan bed and breakfasts are open year round and offer swimming and other beach sports in the summer, skiing and sleigh rides in the winter and antique hunting and fishing all year round. In fact a cozy Michigan bed and breakfast complete with roaring fire and four poster bed might be exactly what you want to return to after a frosty day spent in an ice hut on the lake.


Union city is a popular destination in central southwest Michigan as it is home to several dinner theaters and special Christmas Dinners (featuring Christmas Goose) that take place during the holidays. If you ever wanted to enjoy Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner just like the folks in the famous Norman Rockwell paintings then you must experience a trip to an inn in Michigan.
