Because Trout Creek is centrally located between Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Mackinac there are several wonderful day trips to choose from.

If you haven’t been to Mackinac Island before, get ready to step back into time where people ride bicycles and the horse drawn carriage rather than drive cars. There are so many sites to visit and explore. And all just a 30 minute drive to the ferry service to take you to the island…Which in of itself is a great experience.

People travel from literally all over the world to visit Mackinac Island. It is truly that special. Of course the island offers lodging but when you can stay in a condo just 30 minutes away and also spend time in the resort towns of Petoskey and Harbor Springs…Trout Creek is the perfect answer.

Stops that will delight everyone are the Butterfly Houses. There are 2 on Mackinac Island. The Original Butterfly and Insect House is located just off Main Street. Butterflies flying freely in the beautiful tropical gardens made especially for them. What a sight to behold!

One thing that would help to acclimate you to this beautiful magical place would be to sign up for a Carriage Tour – either the public tour or the private tour. Pricing is obviously going to be different so it just depends on what you feel more comfortable doing. 

If you are a history buff then stops at Fort Holmes, the Biddle House featuring the Mackinac Island Native American Museum and Fort Mackinac are a must.

When you arrive on the island stop at the Tourism Office for more information about everything to see and do there.
