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 Fireplace 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. Pull up a chair.

Opening June 27


In the lobby, our all-day café serves La Colombe coffee and grab-and-go offerings – like our signature Otis maple granola with kefir yogurt, sour cherries and clover honey –  as well as daily local French pastries.

Opening Early July

Birchwood General

Our on-site shop is stocked with a special collection of goods for eating, drinking and gathering. Beautifully curated ceramics, art, books, and vintage-ware, as well as a selection of jam, honey, ambrosia vinegar and bottles of wine.

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.
