All our Michigan collections:

For a great example of the globally under-appreciated gems of American tourism, look no further than the Great Lakes State of Michigan. A geographical rarity in US terms – the state consists of two peninsulas, almost touching each other at 90 degrees, in terms of attractions, Michigan is first and foremost a boat-lover’s paradise. Lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan and Superior lap its shores, and its coasts are dotted by thousands of little harbours, many of them highly picturesque and all of them welcoming to the boat-borne visitors who rank this fresh-water environment, with its lighthouses, jetties and stunning beaches the Wolverine State, on a par with the East Coast playgrounds of Martha’s Vineyard or the Florida Keys. The best places to stay in Michigan cater to all, whether you want to see the sights or enjoy the great outdoors.

While the lower peninsula is of course heavily urbanised in parts – Detroit was the capital of the US car industry after all – it still contains many beauty spots. The heavily forested upper peninsula, with its many crossing points to the Canadian state of Ontario, is a gorgeous wilderness ideal for hunting and fishing.

So the best places to stay in Michigan are a short step to the state’s cultural riches – including around 100 high-quality museums – or a launch pad for your outdoors adventure.
