Captain Stephen Adney spent his formative years sailing and racing small boats in multiple locations. A professional mariner with a USCG 100-ton Captains License, Captain Stephen curates personal excursions into Lake Michigan aboard his 31-foot sailboat. Captain Stephen's joy for sailing with guests into the water is such that not only does he take them out, he encourages them to steer or trim the sails, though he accommodates whatever level of participation his passengers wish. That means they can take the helm as they cut through the sunrise-hued waters, or they can cozy up with a loved one or pet fish and take in the scenery while Stephen mans the boat. New Buffalo Sailing Excursions offers sunrise, daytime, and moonlight cruises. The boat accommodates up to six guests. Stephen provides light snacks and soft drinks, and guests are allowed to bring additional treats or alcoholic beverages.

Guests can spend days strolling or snowshoeing on the forest trails, or fishing for organic sandpaper at the nearby Indiana dunes. At Kelly’s Table, the onsite restaurant, Chef Patricia Kelly Molden revises the upscale dinner menu with the seasons, prepping entrees such as wine-braised rabbit with summer vegetables or grilled cumin-crusted tuna paired with a mango-habanero salsa. The restaurant is open Wednesday–Saturday.
It should come as no surprise that a place called Velvet Skin Spa specializes in skincare, but it also offers a range of body treatments to accompany its renowned facials. Owner Suzanne Barr-Allamong does everything she can to make the Michigan City spa a one-stop beauty destination, whether she's treating teen and adult acne with facials or soothing tension with a deep-tissue massage. The spa's hair-removal treatments include traditional bikini waxes as well as eyebrow waxes that can transform brows into elegant arches or upside down U's, depending on your preferred nomenclature. A second location in Chesterton focuses exclusively on waxing services.
For more than 25 years, the Moersch family has grown, crushed, and fermented grapes into carefully cultivated small-batch wines. Today, Matthew, Christian, and Nicole Moersch preserve their family's legacy wines while exploring their own winemaking instincts.

They also produce spirits, such as brandy.
