Where to Stay

Many hotels in the area provided fantasic accommodations for Iceman Riders. However there are three particular places we like to recommend for accommodations.

Grand Traverse Resort and Spa

You’ll find everything you need before and after race day at the Resort. Sweetwater Bistro offers race fuel and Jack’s Taproom is the spot for a celebratory craft brew. Kids will love spending time at the indoor water playground—complete with a water slide and splash pad—while the grown-ups unwind in the hot tub. Best of all, the Resort provides complimentary shuttles to and from the start line for registered guests.

Visit grandtraverseresort.com or call 800-236-1577 to learn more.

Turtle Creek Casino

As one of Michigan’s most popular casino hotels, we invite you to experience everything Turtle Creek has to offer. Start by finding the room that’s right for you. Looking for a view of Grand Traverse Bay and the surrounding countryside? Try one of our balcony rooms. The benefits of a stay at Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel don’t end with the abundance of casino fun and wonderful dining options available in the building. A stay also includes free breakfast at Seasons, a complimentary airport shuttle, flat screen HDTVs with 60 HD channels including HBO, access to a 24-hour workout room, and more.

Timber Ridge Resort
If camping is more of your style, staying at the finish line venue might be for you! In addition to campsites the resort offers several additional options such as cabins and yurts. There is a waiting list for these sites so please call Timber Ridge at 231-947-2770.
