Built on the vision that we all need a place to escape from the hectic business of everyday responsibilities, The Northern Michigan Retreat is tucked away in the Manistee Forest along a babbling creek. Guests have called it, “a beautiful, peaceful haven,” describing their stay as "calm, soothing, and restful." With new online reservation capabilities, now it’s even simpler to book your stay. The entire cottage may be booked on the website, or through AirB&B. At $175 per night, the is an affordable retreat for couples or a great gathering with family and friends. Want to take relaxation one step further? The owner (a masters professional in Holistic Medicine from WMU) took accommodations one step closer to bliss and began offering all-inclusive retreats for women! With the busy working woman in mind, she wanted to take away all the burden of planning a retreat. So, now groups of three to six women can reserve a Friday to Sunday stay and the rest of the planning is taken care of for them including all meals (organic and home-made), yoga classes in the studio overlooking the creek, a one-hour massage, guided hikes and more. There is no doubt that The Northern Michigan Retreat truly is a retreat for the soul.
