Shop at Cutler's

A part of Petoskey's Gaslight District (voted number one "Small Town Shopping District" in Traverse Magazine's Red Hot Best in 2011) Cutler's has been a "Northern Michigan tradition since 1965." This small boutique offers every kind of kitchen appliance from pots and pans to garlic presses. They also have home decor and gifts including plenty of Vera Bradley items! Stop in and check out their selection!  Whether you are looking for a gift for the foodie aficionado in your life or are just perusing, Cutler's is worth checking out.

Dine at Chandler's A Restaurant

After you have inspired your inner chef, indulge in a delicious dinner at Chandler's A Restaurant! Nestled in behind the Symons General Store, the restaurant only seats 50 people in the main dining room and 10 at the bar, but they also offer seating in their wine cellar where you can enjoy a glass of chardonnay surrounded by 4,000 bottles of wine. They have daily specials to go along with their phenomenal daily menu, which are always worth checking out. If you are in the mood to spend a bit more on dinner then indulge in the lamb entree, but if you want to budget a bit more have the calamari and bibb salad.
