This was a short overnight road trip in Michigan to see the fall colors and travel down the “tunnel of trees” or highway M119 in northern lower Michigan. We started off with lunch at the “Legs Inn” (http://www.legsinn.com/) in Cross Village. Very good meal with about a one hour wait to get in as this is a very popular place, especially during the fall color season.
We left after lunch to travel down M119 south to Bay View just outside of Petosky. The weather was very windy, cold and mostly cloudy which put a damper on the sight seeing, but it was very pretty anyway. This included a stop at a small historical church with a short walk to the beach (not for a swim, believe me).
For the evening we had a nice stay at the Terrace Inn (https://www.theterraceinn.com/) with a very nice dinner at the 1911 restaurant at the Inn. The inn is located in Bay View which is an association formed by the United Methodist Church. The inn has a quiet time from 11 PM until 8 AM, which is kind of nice for those of us who hit the hay early. The Inn is within walking distance of Little Traverse Bay and would be a great place to stay for a longer visit in the Petosky and Harbor Springs area.
