A wonderful historic resort sitting on a wooded peninsula between Portage Lake and Lake Michigan, Portage Point Inn & Beachfront Resort is offering great off-season pricing in April, PLUS these two deals: stay one night and get the second night at half price, or stay two nights and get the third night FREE.
