Visit three charming coastal towns this December, stopping for cookies at eight cozy inns along the way, during the 2nd Annual West Michigan B&B Christmas Cookie Tour. The Northern Michigan holiday event takes place over two weekends, December 6–7 and December 13–14.

The halls are decked during the West Michigan B&B Christmas Cookie Tour, and merry innkeepers in Whitehall, Ludington and Bear Lake share holiday treats, recipes and decorating inspiration. Many of the inns also have pop-up shops with products from area artisans ranging from honey and coffee to paintings and jewelry.

New this year, a portion of the proceeds will support anti-trafficking efforts through a partnership with Ludington’s HumaniTea. (The tearoom and artisan shop provides responsibly sourced teas and gifts from local and global crafters who play a role in trafficking prevention.)

On the tour, guests will get four freshly baked holiday cookies from each B&B (and the recipes!), a handcrafted ornament from one of HumaniTea’s global partners, special discounts to local businesses and entry into a drawing for a $250 gift certificate to be used toward a future stay at one of the B&Bs.

Tickets may be purchased through accommodation packages offered by each of the participating B&Bs. For more information:
