SOLD OUT – Join The Cooking Mom on Mackinac Island in 2022!

SOLD OUT – Join The Cooking Mom on Mackinac Island in 2022!

I’m so excited to announce my next trip! I’m going back to Mackinac Island, Michigan next summer from June 7-11th, 2022! On this trip we even added an extra night so we can have one more day on the island to sightsee, shop or just relax and hang out by the pool at our fabulous hotel. It’s going to be AMAZING! Join me in the fun!

You may know that besides cooking, I love to travel! I’m now hosting culinary vacations. Earlier this summer of I took a group of 40 people to Mackinac Island. It’s one of my favorite places! The trip was an absolute blast! We did it all! We came home from the vacation with new friends and memories that will last as lifetime. Oh and loads of fudge too! That’s what my trips are all about! Delicious food and lots of special memories! I work hard to make them extra special, stress free and a cut above the rest.

Mackinac Island is magical. There are no cars on the island. It’s like you’ve stepped back in time. The island is filled with history, gorgeous scenery, and lots of gourmet food and wine too. Not to mention the best fudge EVER! We’ll experience it all.

Plus, we’ll be there during Lilac Festival. The lilacs will be in full bloom everywhere! I’ve never seen or smelled anything like it! June is still early in the season so the island isn’t too crowded. It’s the perfect time to visit!

On my trips we stay at the very best hotels. The Mission Point Resort is my very favorite hotel on the island! In fact it’s been voted one of the best resorts in the Midwest. The grounds are spectacular! There are flowers everywhere!

It’s right on the water! I love to just relax and sit on the massive lawn in an Adirondack chair and watch the freighters go by on Lake Huron. You may even get to witness a wedding on the lawn!

On this upcoming trip, our entire group will be staying in the main lodge. The hotel lobby is my favorite! It’s a great place to just hang out. I love the huge fireplaces!

The hotel rooms have all recently been re-done and they are so clean, fresh, and cute! Pack a swimsuit because there are a big outdoor swimming pool and two hot tubs. There’s a even a large movie theater where you can see the famous movie, Somewhere in Time, which was filmed on the island. There’s an 18-hole putting course, and no need to bring your clubs. You can use theirs. After exploring the island all day, you can unwind with a massage, facial or pedicure in their full spa!

One of the other things I really love about Mission Point is the food! Every meal I’ve eaten has been absolutely delicious!

There’s so much to do on the island! You’ll have lots of options. One of the highlights is a sunset cocktail sail under the Mackinac Bridge. Talk about memories!

You can take a private carriage ride around the island too see Arch Rock, The Grand Hotel and so much more!

Included in this trip is something else really special! We’ll get into the best fudge shop on the island early in the morning before they open. We’ll get to see how it’s made, which is so cool! We’ll get to sample a bunch too! Last trip, our group even got to try the fudge warm right off the marble slab. It was so yummy!

This trip is great because it’s not too far from home, just about 4 hours from Green Bay, Wisconsin. Plus, it’s budget friendly with several meals included. The trip is all set for June 7-11th, 2022. A super comfy motor coach will pick us up in Green Bay. We’ll make the 4-hour drive to St. Ignace, stopping half way for a wine tasting and a lunch of the best homemade pasties in Escanaba. Then, in St. Ignace, we’ll take the ferry over to the island. Once we get to the island we’ll take a carriage ride to the resort, check in and get settled. That night, I’ll be hosting a wine and cheese welcome party at our hotel.

Then, we’ll sit down for a delicious gourmet dinner with your choice of fresh Lake Michigan Whitefish or steak.
