NEXT STOP, CHEBOYGAN: LOGGING TOWN TURNED HIDDEN TREASURE (Continue Text)
For a daily dose of art, stop by the Gildner Gallery, where’s there’s a vast array of art to take in—from acrylics, to mixed media pieces, to watercolors. Located on top of The Coop Flower Shop, the gallery is a welcoming place for art and artists of every variety, and its owner, Ann Gildner is always on the lookout for artists that offer new and original works.
Right off Mullett Lake, just outside of Cheboygan is Tom’s last stop and one of Northern Michigan’s hidden treasures known as the Hack Ma Tack Inn. Along with so many sites in Cheboygan, the Inn has its own colorful history. The Inn was originally constructed as a hunting and fishing lodge in 1894, but was eventually transformed into a gourmet restaurant and inn. What has stayed constant are the beauty and lushness of the grounds surrounding it as well as its constant stream of visitors. After partaking of a delicious meal, those interested in exploring can visit its bell tower, take in the hand-crafted décor (such as carved fish and canoes) made by local artists who were deeply involved in the Inn’s creation, or even head to the dock to enjoy a quiet walk by the lake.
