Overview

Bring your meeting or event to life with a 900-acre backdrop featuring rolling greens, woodlands, orchards, vineyards, and pristine Lake Michigan shoreline. We're a surprising destination that has it all: expansive meeting space, exceptional golf, sensational group activities, and delicious food and drink—plus a staff that excels at successful meetings.

Located six miles northeast of downtown Traverse City and only 10 minutes from Cherry Capital Airport, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is one of the Midwest's largest full-service, year-round conference destinations.

With plenty of on-site amenities and off-site adventures to be had in Traverse City, we're all about mixing business with pleasure. Annual, high-profile groups like the Detroit Red Wings, Center for Automotive Research, Farm Bureau Insurance, and Special Olympics Michigan know all about this.

"We bring leaders in from all over the world, and the area is perfect. Lots to do, great appeal and (Grand Traverse Resort and Spa) is part of our tradition. It's a friendly, welcoming community."

—Christine Byron

It's the combination of outstanding conference facilities, diverse accommodations and amenities, and our warm Midwestern hospitality that reaches beyond the norm. With 86,500 square feet of versatile meeting space, the Resort can easily accommodate groups of up to 2,500, evidenced by twice hosting the National Governors Association.
