What do guests like to do near Port Huron and Lexington while staying at Adventure Inn bed and breakfast?

First, Lake Huron is fascinating at all times of the year.

Watch the sunrise, migrating birds, freighters on the horizon, or the occasional northern lights.

Plop down on the sand or relax on Adirondack chairs on a deck underneath the tall cottonwoods.

On a night when the breeze is still or offshore, sit around a campfire and tell stories or just a dream.

From our 100 feet of beach, walk along the shoreline south to the end of Lakeport State Park, 2.3 miles roundtrip. Or walk a quarter-mile north to the Burtchville Township Park beach and beyond. If conditions are right, travel by canoe instead. (Canoe and safety gear provided.)

Red SchwinnTool around the not-heavily-traveled byways of North Lakeport on our vintage Schwinn bicycles. Or bring your rollerblades.

If conditions are right, Captain Adventure may be available to take you out for a cruise on our humble fishing boat, or our small sailboat, if launched.

Keep in touch with the rest of your world via our free WiFi network, even while sitting on the beach.

Rainy-day pastimes include movies, puzzles, games and books. In winter, enjoy our wood-burning fireplace.

Summer weekends in the Blue Water area and Michigan’s Thumb feature a succession of art fairs, music festivals, sailboat races, farmers markets and county fairs – even a bologna festival.
