Mitten state offerings

I recently added the word “Michigan” to my masthead. So no longer am I just “Mom Meets Baby,” I’m now “Michigan Mom Meets Baby.” I am one of this state’s biggest fans, and if ever Michigan needed a fourth quarter comeback, now’s the time! I want to help promote this great state, so from time to time, I’ll be posting about my favorite Michigan destinations, Michigan-based businesses and the like.

mhc_shpo_bayview1_48648_7First up is my love for a community in Michigan that my husband and I stumbled upon a year ago this week while vacationing in Northern Michigan. Visiting Bay View is like taking a step back in time. The 440 cottages that make up this community vary from impressively big and beautfiul to tiny and utterly charming. Many cottages are available for rent, and the beautifully restored Terrace Inn (the B&B where we stayed), sits in the middle of it all with great food and even greater ambiance. Concerts, theatrical performances and other free and open-to-the-public events abound in summer months, and Bay View residents and visitors have access to a private beach on Little Traverse Bay.

If you’ve got a favorite Michigan destination you’d like to share, post it in the comments!

    Hello fellow Michigan mom. It’s nice to meet you 🙂

    Bay View looks extremely cozy. I guess I don’t have one place in particular that’s a favorite but I want one! You know what I mean? A place that you visit at least once a year that you can sort of call your own.

    I do enjoy driving up to “White Rock” by Lake Huron. It’s just this huge rock that sits out in the lake off of M-25 sort of up near the thumb. It was used to mark land that the Indians ceded to the state in the 1800’s. There isn’t really anything else that is special about the rock but that area contains a roadside park and public access to the beach. It’s nice to just walk down there and chill out for a while without big crowds and just sort of think about what it was like way back when.

    Of course anywhere in the U.P. is always great as well. I still haven’t gotten to go on a boat tour near the Pictured Rocks but that is on my to due list once my son gets a little bit older and stops jumping around so much 🙂
