Opening Soon in 2024

We are thrilled to welcome you to Otis, your gateway to the breathtaking beauty of Northern Michigan. We have spent the last year transforming this historic 10-acre property into a place of endless discovery, good design and authentic hospitality. Guided by seasons, Otis is the place for disconnecting from the day-to-day… your new Up North tradition in the making.

Fireplace Lounge

The heart of our hotel: the Otis Lounge. With a design nod to the old-school seasonal lodge, this reimagined space is an ode to comfort and conversation, where fellow travelers and devoted locals spend sunset hours (and late nights) around the epic Up North fieldstone fireplace and a beautiful bar. Sit down with one of our specialty stirred cocktails, like the Otis Old Fashion featuring local Traverse City cherries, and grab a bite to eat.

Wednesday to Saturday  3PM to 9PM
Sunday 1PM to 7PM


In the lobby, our café serves La Colombe coffee and grab-and-go offerings – like our signature coffee, sour cherries and clover honey –  as well as daily local French pastries.

Wednesday to Sunday 8AM to 12PM

Birchwood General

Our on-site shop is stocked with a special collection of goods for eating, drinking and gathering. Beautifully curated books, outdoor accessories, and vintage-ware, as well as a selection of picnic ready goods.

Open Daily 9AM to 8PM

In The Grove

Under a canopy of old growth trees, The Grove offers guests an idyllic setting for enjoying food, programming and the surrounding beauty. Grab a table under the shade of an old oak or spread out a picnic blanket to take in a view of the meadow. You might even see horses from a neighboring farm trot by. Available for private events.
