Where To Stay
Where To Play
The Crystal Mountain Resort is a destination in itself! The resort has a ski hill, ice skating rink, and offers horseshoeing and horse drawn carriage rides during the winter months. During the summer months, there is an outdoor water park, golf course, alpine slide, and they offer chairlift rides. Additionally, there is an indoor pool, spa, and several restaurants onsite.
Check out Michigan Legacy Art Park or Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. I highly recommend checking out Iron Fish Distillery! They have awesome whiskeys and are very family and dog friendly. We enjoyed playing lawn games and sampling their whiskeys.
Where To Eat
Full disclosure, this is not Thompsonville’s strength. BUT! We really enjoyed 231 Bar & Grill and Rosie’s Country Cafe for breakfast.
