Local Area Attractions & Information

The Best Western River Terrace is a great location for Four Seasons of Fun! On the Michigan Inland Waterway, the Best Western River Terrace is your starting point to the historic Straits of Mackinac or the 40-mile chain of lakes and rivers the make up the Inland Waterway. The 700 feet of dockage accommodates guests arriving by boat and those launching trailered craft at the nearby ramp.

For sightseeing, we offer the Cheboygan County Historic Museum, U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw, Mackinac Island, Old Mackinac Point, Cheboygan Public Beach and Lighthouse, and the Indian River Shrine/Cross in the Woods. Cheboygan is only 25 miles from two "western quality" ski slopes and offers miles of cross-country ski or hiking trails.

Snowmobiling Trails

For snowmobiling enthusiasts, leave directly from our hotel to enjoy the well groomed trails leading to Black Mountain Recreation Area, Black Lake, or Mackinaw City's trails to the west. We haven't forgotten the ORV riders. There are several trails close to Cheboygan such as the Black Lake ATV ORV Trail. Michigan's North Central State Trail is a 62 mile multi-use trail connecting Gaylord, Indian River, Cheboygan and Mackinaw City. The trail has a 10' wide packed crushed limestone surface and is open to all non-motorized uses year round and snowmobiles from December 1 to March 31.
