Michigan Resort Voted ‘Best Wine Country Hotel in U.S.’
The votes are in! A resort in Northern Michigan has nabbed the top top in USA Today's "Best Wine Country Hotel in North America" poll.
Twenty hotels that "provide a perfect place to relax over a glass of wine after a day of touring and tasting in wine regions around the country," were nominated by a panel of experts and put up to a public vote...
Congratulations to Black Star Farms Inn in Suttons Bay!
Here's USA Today's praise for the wine-centric Michigan hotel:
The Inn at Black Star Farms puts guests in the heart of the Traverse Wine Coast, with easy access to wineries and tasting rooms on the Old Mission and Leelanau Wine Trails. Each stay includes a daily breakfast, nightly hospitality hour with wine and small bites, a bottle of house wine and an exclusive barrel room tasting.
Hotel Walloon in Walloon Lake, Mich. was also in the running:
This boutique hotel in Northern Michigan features just 32 guest rooms in a lakeside setting that’ll make you feel like you’re stepping back into the early 20th century. Nearby Walloon Lake Winery is one of many options in the Petoskey Wine Region.
Black Star Farms beat out all 19 other competitors, thirteen of which were in California.
I'll be adding Black Star Farms to my list of must-see places in the Mitten State!
