Why Rays Retreat Is Unique

  • Campfires
    Enjoy the countryside while staying in a comfortable up to date motel room. Our outdoor patio area is surrounded by tall oaks, flower gardens and bird feeders. The evening campfire is a great way to end the day.
  • Free Breakfast
    It's true there may not be a free lunch in this life. But there is a free breakfast at Rays Retreat. We always offer our continental breakfast bar which features donuts, bagels, cereals, fresh fruit, waffles, and when I am in the mood home baked goodies. During the winter we offer a hot entree every morning. This is NOT a restaurant - you do not have a menu or choice. For instance, one morning we may serve pancakes and sausage. Another biscuits and gravy. Perhaps a breakfast sandwich. Its free, its what we feel like cooking that morning.

I'm a 50ish woman sharing my love of Michigan and its Great Lakes. Along with what's happening in Northern Michigan, things to see and do. What's happening here at Rays Retreat and all other things I love. Which include knitting, mother nature, rocks and gems, herb and flower gardening, cooking, exploring, animals and especially dogs.
