Amazing carriages, historical records and photographs, tack, oh ... yeah, and beautiful horses too. All in a well-kept facility with knowledgeable staff. Great for all ages!
This was a very cool excursion. It started with a short hike up the hill, going up the main drive past the hotel entrance drive. About a quarter mile up there is a sign for the carriage barn. The main room is full of an antique carriage collection that rivals the one at Ford's Greenfield Village. Fabulous. Next to that is the stable with the amazing horses, and a n antique tack collection. Well worth the time and walk.
Relaxing stop on our Macinac Island tour.
A blast from the past truly exceptional...
Such beautifully kept facility for those majestic horses
