Fifteen stained-glass windows add to the elegance of the structure, and the interior decoration includes hand stenciled walls and ceilings, carved woodwork and seven tiled fireplaces.

Great ambiance, a fine cozy dining experience (that won't break the bank) a gem you might not step into, if you didn't know it was there, but you won't regret.

Cross Lake Michigan in 2 1/2 hours. Roundtrips daily between Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Muskegon, Michigan.
Muskegon Heights is Muskegon's worst area for crime. It's no Detroit 8 Mile, but should still be steered around by lone travellers and females.
The Heights is basically the area west of Getty, south of Laketon, and northeast of Business-31. One particular flashpoint is a 7-11 style convenience/liquor store on the corner of Sherman and Hoyt which has been the scene of numerous holdups.
Stretching from Black Creek Road just north of Sherman (east of US-31) out through the back of Fruitport to Ravenna and on to Conklin and Marne, the Musketawa Trail is a biking, rollerblading, snowmobiling and cross-country ski trail built along an old railway track.
Equipment: Muskegon County allows snowmobiling on its roads' shoulders.
Undiscovered place to visit & live without the CROWDS!
Fondest memory: Lifeguarding at Pere Marquette Park in the Summers.
