We are the Interlochen Motel and we are Clean, Quiet, Comfortable and close to everything Northern Michigan has to offer. We are the closest accommodations to the world famous Interlochen Center for the Arts. Just 10 minutes to Traverse City to the north, 20 minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes And Lake Michigan to the west, and 15 minutes to Crystal Mountain to the south.
Enjoy the comfort of snowmobiling from your door, getting fuel one block north, and getting on the trails one block south of us. No need to trailer your sleds from place to place, the trails here will get you to the Mackinaw Bridge if that's your desire.
Ski Crystal Mountain all day and come back for some of the best food around at Hofbrau or Boones for dinner.
There is nothing like good ice fishing and we have it! Come check out Green, Duck, or Long Lakes, just to name a few, for your limit. We get great ice on all the lakes and the lakes have a reputation for having plenty of fish.
For those of you that just like to look at how beautiful Northern Michigan is in the winter, don't forget that we are situated in the middle of 3 enticing casinos. To the south is Little River Casino. To the north are Leelanau Sands Casino and Turtle Creek Casino. Come try your luck.
We hope you will give us a try!
Nothing compares to Northern Michigan in the Winter. It’s going to be a great winter season with plenty to do! Visit the Interlochen Arts Academy, snowshoeing or cross country skiing at the state park or one of the many trails close by, snowmobile from your door (with a new trail that keeps you off the main road), ice fishing at Duck, Green or Long Lakes, downhill ski or cross country skiing at Crystal Mountain or go on a winter wine tasting spree.
