Breweries and vineyards

Most of these breweries and vineyards are less than 20 minutes from our front door!
Our family and friends LOVE this place! Great for large groups. Excellent cider, owner was previously Goose Island (Chicago) award winning brew master). Animals for the kids to check out. Highly recommend getting the cheese picnic basket, all locally sourced.

For $5, you get to taste 7 wines or ciders. Even better, you cans redeem that $5 on any purchases made. They have private tastings and events which are great for groups as well. Our fav is the Capriccio red wine. You’ll be amazed at what MI wines have to offer. Embrace the “lake effect”.

This restaurant is notorious is SOHA. Our fam honestly thinks it’s overrated but we’re food snobs so take it with a grain of salt. They’re known for their skewer of onion rings. My wife loves to take her girl friends to the bar section for their mimosa flight. Don’t judge!

Take the paved path off Baseline Rd which leads you right to Newcome beach. Unfortunately, the high lake waters have taken back most of this beach. It’s tiny but still a perfect spot to watch the gorgeous sunset! Easy walk from our front door.
