After buying their first canoe in 1942, Chester and Stella Heavner were hooked. So were their friends. After constantly loaning out their red-canvas Old Town canoe, the pair invested in two more and started charging a nominal rental fee. In 1953, they made it official with a patch of riverfront property, eight canoes, and a trailer. Today, Heavner Canoe & Kayak Rental is run by Chester and Stella’s eldest son, Alan. He and his staff manage an inventory of more than 200 canoes and kayaks, which they rent at three locations along the Huron River.

A boomerang is designed to come right back, but it only works if you throw it perfectly. In that way, the Australian toy makes a fitting logo for The Comeback Inn, since it reflects a commitment to quality food that keeps drawing diners back. That philosophy shines through in every item on the menu, whether it's a plateful of jumbo buffalo wings or a signature Highland Station sandwich, made with fresh pastrami, corned beef, and homemade coleslaw. Although the bulk of the menu is sandwiches and wraps, pasta dishes also make an appearance, as do a fleet of pizzas?including a weekly changing specialty pie, just in case diners have memorized all five proteins on the Meat Meets Meat pizza. However, there are more reasons to return to Comeback Inn than just food. The restaurant has drink specials and live entertainment several nights a week, including Monday's "My Trivia Live" with Devin, the resident Trivia Jockey. During summer months, Comeback Inn's parking lot transforms into a car show each Tuesday, complete with classic automobiles and live music.
