Elk Viewing Carriage Ride, Gourmet Dinner and Wine-Tasting       

Thunder Bay Resort, Hillman      10:00 A.M.  –  4:00 P.M.       Thursday, October 19               

Enjoy the fall season with a special treat for yourself!  Described as a “real-life fairy tale” and declared by USA Today as a “Top 10” Event come with us to the famous Elk-Viewing Carriage Ride, Gourmet Dinner and Wine-Tasting. Horse-drawn carriages take our group through the wooded resort, over a wooden bridge that crosses the Thunder Bay River as guides fill the ride with interesting stories, facts and history of Northern Michigan and the elk.  The ride will take us to the charming Elk Antler Log Cabin filled with antiques, trophy mounts and a massive split stone fireplace. Sit back and enjoy as culinary artists and owners, Jan and Jack Matthias prepare your hearty gourmet five- course lunch on antique wood cook-stoves as you watch.  

After lunch, your carriage ride continues into the Preserve; here you will get an up-close look at majestic bull elk. Then, it is back aboard the carriage for the return trip to the bus. This is the exciting fall rut season; hopefully we will hear the bulls bugle and see them spar for dominance.  

Registration Deadline:  Oct. 2
