Mission Point Resort in Michigan

Mackinac Island is a destination built on a longstanding tradition of family holidays. It is also a place out of time, an automobile-free getaway reachable only by ferry or air. Drawing its strengths from the island's heritage, Mission Point Resort recalls an era before TV and the endless extracurricular activities took the place of quality family time. Moms, dads, sons and daughters can borrow bikes and pedal off for a day's adventure, test their collective courage on a ghost tour, play a leisurely round of croquet and enjoy meals together, especially since the twelve-and-under set dines free at two of the house restaurants. A club for young ones aged four to twelve features on-site arts and crafts as well as field trips to places such as the Butterfly House and Fort Mackinac. As for parents, they can try out the eighteen-hole executive putting course, play tennis or simply curl up with a good book in a comfy chair with relaxing views of the lake.
