Snowflakes are a lot like children: unique and special individually, but annoying when hundreds of them pile up on your lawn. Make the most of it with this Groupon.
$299 for a Two-Night Stay with Snowmobile Rentals ($636 Value)
- Two-night stay for two adults in any standard or loft room in The Lodge
- One-day snowmobile rental for two (includes two sleds and helmets)
Rustic northern decor, including wood furnishings and wool blankets, adorn the lodge's 40 guest rooms. Leather chairs and sofas, card tables, and a fieldstone fireplace can be found in the building's great room, which is open at all hours for lounging, playing board games, and swapping stories from the trail. The resort's winter-sports center not only outfits guests with snowmobiles, but also loans out free sports equipment such as cross-country skis, snowshoes, ice skates, and sleds. Sessions in the Scandinavian sauna warm up chilly fingers and toes. Additional adults may stay for $15 per night; kids stay free.
Drummond Island Resort and Conference Center
Drummond Island Resort and Conference Center occupies 2,000 acres of northwoods forest and shoreline on the largest island in the Great Lakes. Located just a ferry ride away from the easternmost tip of the U.P., this woodsy complex of cottages, cabins, and a main lodge is a haven for outdoor sports as well as relaxation. Golf on The Rock course is the main order of business in the summer and fall, when players challenge themselves on 18 holes set amid cedars, ponds, and wildlife. The colder months turn the campus into a hub of winter sports such as snowmobiling, snow tubing, and snowflake hunting.
Pins Bar & Grill, located in the onsite eight-lane bowling alley, serves up casual nightly dinners year round. The more high-end Bayside restaurant (open seasonally) offers local and imported seafood, steaks, and pasta.
