Arriving by Car

Travel times from the major cities within a day’s drive are shown on the table. We suggest picking the best route from your point of origin to Traverse City. Once there, take the Grandview Parkway (M-31 and M-37) north to Traverse Highway (M-72) and turn left toward Empire.

From Traverse City

Continue on M-72 for about 15 miles. M-72 takes a sharp turn right and then, about a mile past the curve, has a blinking yellow light where M-72 takes a left. You may go left to Empire, or go straight on S Coleman (County Rd 669). We suggest going straight. Stay on S Coleman (CR-669) until it dead-ends (about 3.4 miles) at CR-616 (W Burdickville Rd). Take a left. Stay on CR-616 about 2.6 miles until it dead-ends at S Dunns Farm Rd (CR-675). Take a right on S Dunns Farm Rd and drive around Big Glen Lake. Take a right on Westman Rd, about 4.5 miles. In .6 of a mile it will dead-end at M-22. Take a left and then an immediate right into the resort.

From Empire

M-72 intersects M-22 in Empire. Turn right and follow M-22 north about 2 miles to M-109 and turn left. Continue on about 5 miles until M-109 intersects with M-209 – turn right to stay on M-109. In about 2 miles, M-109 will intersect M-22 again in Glen Arbor. Go straight on M-22 about 2 miles north and the resort will be on your left.
