Pere Marquette is a beautiful beach on Lake Michigan with a pier with a lighthouse. The parking is free! In the summer season a restaurant "The Deck" is open serving lots of delicious food choices!

Shoreline Inn is a nice place. Holiday Inn is close by. If your into camping we have beautiful state parks near by. I would check with VRBO or airbnb.
