Petoskey may be small, but it's mighty in terms of cool and unique things to see and do. During the summer, Petoskey swells a bit with tourists who swarm to this resort town located on Lake Michigan. While you're here, Tillie's Tafel invites you to our coffee and bakery shop for the best cinnamon rolls. Below, learn about four things to see and do while here in Petoskey, and take a gooey cinnamon roll with you. Stop by today!
Find Petoskey Stones
If you haven't heard of Petoskey stones, you're not alone. However, these famous stones are a beautiful sight to discover and keep. Along the shore of Lake Michigan, these fossilized rugose coral stones wash up, and you can find them with a careful eye.
Mushroom Houses of Charlevoix
If you love The Hobbit, then you can't visit Petoskey without seeing the Mushroom Houses of Charlevoix. A quick 20-minute drive down the road, these unique houses were built by architect Earl Young using large boulders and curved roofs that will make you feel like you're in the land of the Lord of the Rings.
See the Places Where Ernest Hemingway Lived
Ernest Hemingway spent a bit of time in Petoskey. You can see the Red Fox Inn where he stayed, one of the churches mentioned in his writings, Greensky Hill Indian Methodist Church, and Charles Farm. Be sure to bring along our soft cinnamon rolls as you search for inspiration.
Watch the Sunrise or Sunset
There's something truly special when you watch a sunrise and/or sunset over a large body of water, and seeing one of those over Lake Michigan is a true treat. Get up early, grab a coffee and one of our big cinnamon rolls, and head over to the beach for a spectacular sight you won't soon forget.
