I was traveling around Portage Lake near Onekama and I came across the Portage Point Resort. It is a historic complex of buildings and it reminded me of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. It was constructed in 1902 by the same builder of the Grand Hotel. About ten years after it was constructed the canal from Lake Michigan to Portage Lake was dredged. Large steamships could bring guests from Chicago and Milwaukee to the relax in northwestern Michigan. Over the decades the resort has continued its unique historic look and there are plans to restore and improve the historic property in the next few years. You can see more on their website HERE
