Three Michigan Resorts in Running for Best Wine Country Hotel in U.S.
If you'd like to take a trip to wine country this summer, you don't even have to leave the state!
Three Michigan resorts are in the running for "Best Wine Country Hotel in the U.S." in a USA Today and 10best poll.
A panel of experts nominated twenty U.S. hotels that "provide a perfect place to relax over a glass of wine after a day of touring and tasting in wine regions around the country," and now it's up to a public vote.
Chateau Chantal in Traverse City, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Acme, and the Inn at Blackstar Farms in Suttons Bay are all up for the honor.
Here's USA Today's praise for each Michigan resort:
Chateau Chantal - Traverse City, Michigan
Chateau Chantal, located just north of Traverse City, Michigan, combines a vineyard and winery with a luxurious B&B lodging. All suites and rooms have exceptional views of vineyards or Grand Traverse Bay, many with private patios or balconies, and many rooms include wet bars and whirlpool tubs. The inn’s amenities include fireplaces and sitting areas, plus an exceptional breakfast.
Inn at Blackstar Farms - Suttons Bay, Michigan
The Inn at Black Star Farms puts guests in the heart of the Traverse Wine Coast, with easy access to wineries and tasting rooms on the Old Mission and Leelanau Wine Trails. Each stay includes a daily breakfast, nightly hospitality hour with wine and small bites, a bottle of house wine and an exclusive barrel room tasting.
Grand Traverse Resort and Spa - Acme, Michigan
Visitors to the Leelanau Peninsula and Old Mission Peninsula wine trails often choose the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa (there’s a casino too). A bevy of accommodation options includes The Tower, The Shores, the hotel, condominiums or suites, so you're to find something to suit your preferences.
You can vote for your favorite once per day through June 10 at noon here.
