Fresh air and starry nights abound from the decks of one of the largest traditional sailing vessels on the Great Lakes. You’ll experience one of the best vantage points on West Grand Traverse Bay. Join us on board for a two hour evening cruise. After the sail we return to our dock where you spend the overnight secured at our pier, followed by a hearty homemade full breakfast cooked on our wood burning stove in the morning.
There are accommodations for 20 guests in 10 private cabins below deck which are rustic and fitting of a mid-1800’s style windjammer. Each is equipped with two built-in, wooden, single bunks and electric lighting. The cabins are bright, clean, comfortable and supplied with fresh linens, towels and warm blankets. There’s plenty of room for a good night’s sleep or, if you’d rather (and the weather’s appropriate) you may bring a sleeping bag and a pad for sleeping on deck under the stars. There are two enclosed toilet facilities on deck that are kept sparkling clean. Access to shower facilities on shore is available for further passenger comfort.
Mornings are a special time, with spectacular sunrises climbing over Old Mission Peninsula. Wake up to a fresh mug of coffee topside while the preparation of breakfast is in its final stages…This is one to remember.
The Tall Ship Manitou Bed and Breakfast was the highlight of our tip around Lake Michigan. Our stay included a two hour evening sail (complete with dinner and live entertainment), overnight on board and a gourmet breakfast with the crew. The crew was knowledgeable, welcoming and always available. I was traveling with my teenage granddaughter and we had a blast!
Note: Minimum age is 6 years old.
Manitou and the dock area are a smoke free environment.
