In 1964, the trio of Joe Balulis, Bill Kater, and Seth Bidwell hung a shingle that read "Marquette Trails Golf Club" amid the dense forest of Manistee National Forest. The nine-hole golf course was their verdant brainchild and source of nutritional fairway grass, but after three years of joint ownership the triumvirate elected to go their separate ways, leaving the family of Joe Balulis to take over. Joe’s sons would go on to oversee the addition of a back nine that opened in 1985, bringing the overall length to 5,847 yards and par to 70. In 1993 a new clubhouse and a restaurant (The View) opened. Today, the Balulis family invites players to venture through the forest groves with clubs in hand, pursuing their golf balls until they’re in the cups and safe from the course's forest-dwelling co-founders.

Cold Stone's ice cream, made fresh in stores every day, inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. The ice cream generously welcomes dozens of toppings, as traditional as crumbled cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as granola and black licorice. Choose your favorite ice cream from among dozens of silky flavors, such as Irish cream and butter pecan. Then make certain no one will try and steal a taste by topping it protectively with brownies, gumballs, and cherry pie filling. Whatever Frankencream you create, it'll be scooped cold off the grill into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl. Cold Stone's ice cream and toppings vary between seasons and location, and they also offer sorbet and an array of lighter toppings such as fruit and honey. Ice-cream creations run between $4 and $6, depending on size.

With a name inspired by the idea of a healthy baking revolution, The Flour Uprising’s bakers Annette Pratt and Linda Spyke battle the stereotype that healthy food isn't delicious. Each day, they churn organic and Michigan-farmed ingredients into healthy traditional, vegan, and gluten-free breads and treats. As the rich, energizing aroma of fair-trade coffee fills the café, they roll out and stir up whole-grain breads, gluten-free cupcakes, and vegan brownies. Annette and Linda also cook up weekly lunches that include soups, sandwiches, and fresh buns stuffed with meats, veggies, or Russian nesting buns.

Triplicate cooking options keep growling bellies from upsetting the surrounding wildlife, including a fully equipped kitchen, a charcoal grill, and fire rings that yield flame-licked fare. Drawing inspiration from 50 acres of surrounding woodlands, rich wood lines the walls and floors of each cabin. Upon stepping outside, guests will find themselves minutes away from attractions such as the Pine River, Lake Cadillac, and various public beaches.

The northern Michigan town of Prudenville edges one side of the 22,000-acre Houghton Lake. During warmer months, groups flock to the water for jet-skiing and kayaking. Between Houghton Lake and nearby Higgins Lake, there are more than a dozen launch sites for boating; local shops rent out boats for all kinds of trips, whether you want to fish for the lake's abundant bass, brown trout, and walleye fish, or just take a relaxing cruise. The two lakes are also lined with sandy beaches, which have picnic pavilions and waters safe for swimming.About 16 miles north of Springbrook Inn is Marguerite Gahagan Nature Preserve, which is threaded with a network of hiking and biking trails across 60 acres. Signs pop up throughout the trails that tell informative tidbits about the white- and red-pine forest and cedar swamp habitats. A small stream known as Tank Creek also cuts across the preserve, and it's lined with boardwalks and decks that overlook the water. One paved trail is wheelchair accessible.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.

The owners of Marinades Pizza Bistro have given their loyal customers a tough choice: either fall back on the familiar taste of gourmet wood-fire pizzas, or branch into uncharted territory at Grill One Eleven, which is right next door. Reviewers for On the Town and The Grand Rapids Press did not regret their decision to venture into Grill One Eleven, each one praising chef John Butler's seafood-stuffed grouper, swimming in chive-onion-butter sauce.

Like a king disguised as a lowly archduke, the two-story restaurant's ambiance is both elegant and approachable, with rich, hardwood floors and earth-toned walls surrounding diners as they feast on chicken risotto or roasted portabella burgers. Local craft beers flow freely at the granite-topped bar, pairing well with rib eyes and sirloins hot from the wood grill. Large windows shed sunlight on desserts of carrot cake and creamy lemon tart, which can also be enjoyed beside fireplace of the upper-level lounge area.
