Three Michigan Resorts in the Running for ‘Best Winery Hotel’ in the Country
The Mitten State is getting recognized as one of the premier spots for wine in the country!
Not only is a Michigan location in the running for "Top Wine Region in the U.S." in a USA Today poll, but three resorts in the state are competing for top winery hotel in the country!
In fact, the three hotels actually nabbed the three top spots on the list last summer.
Chateau Chantal in Traverse City, Hotel Walloon in Walloon Lake, and the Inn at Blackstar Farms in Suttons Bay are all once again competing for "Best Winery Hotel in America".
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," have been nominated by a panel of experts. And now it's up to us to vote!
Here's USA Today's praise for each Michigan resort and links to vote for each in this year's contest:
Chateau Chantal - Traverse City, Michigan
Chateau Chantal, located just north of Traverse City, Michigan, combines a vineyard and winery with a luxurious B&B lodging. All suites and rooms have exceptional views of vineyards or Grand Traverse Bay, many with private patios or balconies, and many rooms include wet bars and whirlpool tubs. The inn’s amenities include fireplaces and sitting areas, plus an exceptional breakfast.
Hotel Walloon - Walloon Lake, Michigan
Hotel Walloon, a 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.

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.
