Where to swim the day away:
Private Beach Club
Located just across US 31 our Private Beach Club features an outdoor pool, hot tub and access to Grand Traverse Bay. This is the place to go for outdoor water rentals like paddle boards, jetskis and more!
Overlooking Spruce Run golf course, Governors Pool is the perfect spot to catch some sun or enjoy a dip in the pool. A seasonal destination, Governors Pool features a convenient Pool Bar and is located just steps away from the Resort.
Our Health Club features two pools, our indoor water playground, one indoor kids hot tub (kept at a lower temperature that is safer for children), and two outdoor adults only hot tubs.
In the morning the larger of our two pools hosts open lap swimming with lane markers, in the afternoon it transforms into our kids friendly activity area. On Friday and Saturday evenings from 10:00-11:00pm we have adults only swim for guests 18 years old or older. People under 18 years of age will not be allowed in the indoor pools, pool deck splash pad, or in the hot tubs during that time.
