I couldn't believe how wonderful this place is. I have been to other places that have a butterfly room and this place is so much better! It is filled with Beautiful Butterfly's!

While no bigger then a back yard patio the Butterfly house transcends the day to day life. Surrounded by butterflies and thick foliage you feel a sense of magic as once of natures most majestic creatures flutters around you sipping from brightly colored flowers.

Short 1 1/2 hr. Drive from southern Michigan, no reservations needed for ferry boat ride. Easy golf cart rental, lots of restaurants, magnificent scenery.

The butterflies were beautiful, and there were all kinds of different ones. However, we couldn't stay very long. It was like a hot house in the room, and we stayed less than 5 minutes. So if you don't mind the heat, it's totally worth it.

This was my wife's idea and turned out to be the most relaxing þhing I did during our trip. It has a huge gift shop with many beautiful items. The butterfly area is a large greenhouse.

Such a serene stop on our trip! Up close and personal with a variety of butterflies, a nice break while traveling the island. The staff at the desk and in the butterfly room were very friendly and full of great information about the butterflies. I only wish it were bigger to spend more time walking through it!

This is a must see when you visit the island. You can get up close and personal with the butterflies. We were able to assist with the release of the just hatched butterflies.

Got a few pictures, and they were beautiful, but not as many as I thought there would be. Kind of costly, I think.

This was definitely a highlight of our visit. The lifespan of a butterfly is so short and I had the great privilege of meeting one up close. The variety of winged wonders was amazing. I enjoyed learning more about them.
