Where to Stay

We are located in beautiful Emmet County in the northwestern tip of Michigan’s lower peninsula. Known as a resort area, there are many places for you to stay. For a friendly and accommodating choice not too far from the workshop, there is the Birchwood Inn. Located on the famous Tunnel of Trees Scenic Road, it is a good base and one of the nearest lodging options to us. If you do book with them, mention us for a 10% discount off your room rate.
