Celebrate Christmas Magic with 8 Michigan B&B’s
Join the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast and Celebrate the Joy of Holiday Baking and Decorating with Private Tours, Gifts, Shopping, Specials and Cookies Galore!
Last years Christmas Cookie Tour was such a grand success we are doing it again! Join us for the 2nd Annual West Michigan Bed & Breakfast Christmas Cookie Tour!
Weekend One: Friday evening Dec. 6 from 6-9:00 pm and Saturday Dec. 7 from 1-6:00 pm.
Weekend Two: Friday evening Dec. 13 from 6-9:00 pm and Saturday Dec. 14 from 1-6:00 pm.
Stretching from Whitehall to Bear Lake, eight inns will open their doors to those in search of delectable holiday treats, recipes and decorating inspiration. Participating B&Bs and Inns located in Whitehall, Ludington and Bear Lake will hold private open houses and cookie tours.
Get a peek inside each of these wonderful and unique B&Bs and see them all decked-out for the holidays! Smell the aroma of fresh baked cookies and most importantly – sample and take home beautifully decorated creations! You will receive recipes for all the wonderful treats you get from each B&B. Get a jump on your holiday shopping too. Many of the inns on the tour will include “pop-up” shops. Shops will feature products from area artisans and merchants ranging from specialty food items, to paintings, jewelry, soaps and lotions; there’s something special for everyone on your list!
In 2019 we are making a very special cookie in honor of Lisa’s Mom – Chocolate Covered Cherry cookies! Since Lisa was very young, she remembers every year her grandfather would bring her mom a special box of chocolate covered cherries. Just for her! Mom would tuck them away so her 6 children couldn’t devour them! Oh, she would share, but we would have to be very good!
This year, you are helping make a difference with every ticket you purchase! A portion of the proceeds from this 2019 West Michigan B&B Christmas Cookie Tour will be re-invested into human trafficking prevention through a partnership with Ludington-based HumaniTea; a tea room and artisan gift shop located on James Street in Ludington. The shop provides responsibly sourced teas and quality gifts obtained from local and global crafters who play a role in anti-trafficking efforts.
Shop owners Carmen Biggs and Chris Turnbull share, “HumaniTea is a tea shop that exists to confront the tragedy of modern-day slavery. All of our teas are responsibly sourced, and our hand-crafted gifts are either made by survivors or are from collaboratives that are part of trafficking prevention. We’re changing the story of human trafficking. Together we can make a difference one cup, one story, one life at a time.”
