In west Michigan, October is a wonderful time to visit for the beautiful color season.  A leisurely scenic drive along Lake Michigan’s scenic coastline allows you to see all the glorious changes during Michigan’s fall season.  Stopping at a local farm market, enjoying fresh cider and taking in all the scenery on a crisp, fall day makes for a wonderful start of a family trip. 

Imagine a week-end stay in one of our Back Forty cabins or log homes, Thoroughbred Suites, Homestead Condos or Lofts Hotel, located right in the middle of over 2,000 acres that gives you a front-row seat to the surrounding trees in all their splendor of the fall color changes.  Then there are all the activities you can enjoy in addition to enjoying nature.  You can play and relax in the Gold Rush Waterpark, have lunch or dinner at our Sundance Restaurant or for lighter fare, Rustler’s Roost, located just above the waterpark makes for a wonderful day for the entire family.  There are hayrides, bonfires, and s’mores and do not forget the pony and trail rides, two golf courses, mini-golf and our arcade; activities for all to enjoy.
