Wilderness Sleigh Ride Dinners At Treetops Resort…Winter is The Tastiest Season of All!

Paul Beachnau, Executive Director at Gaylord Area Convention and Tourism Bureau and Susan Wilcox Olson Principal of Grand Bay Promotions and Media Manager at National Cherry Festival join Chris Holman in the studio to discuss a bit about how Treetops Resort & Gaylord are Celebrating Winter.


Listen to full interview below!

Treetops Resort – Michigan’s most spectacular resort goes gourmet again this winter season with the return of a favorite culinary adventure called the Wilderness Sleigh Ride Dinner

Guests will be shuttled to the remote Project Nature property where they will be greeted by a bonfire and a hot drink before they board a horse drawn sleigh. The sleigh will take culinary and adventure enthusiasts on a meandering ride through the woods to the Wilderness Cabin where a four-course meal with assorted beer and wine will be served up in grand style. 

The culinary team at Treetops will ladle up the elegant comfort of Morel and Mushroom Bisque, Baby Kale Salad with tomato, cranberries, apple and cashews. The star of the meal is a Petit Filet Mignon served with Blackberry Demi Glaze accompanied by a Jumbo Shrimp Skewer accompanied by Sour Cream Cheddar Chive Mashed Potato and Glazed Asparagus.  The grand finale of the meal will be one of the culinary team’s sweetest treats; a White Chocolate Cherry Mouse.

Following dinner, the shuttle will transport guests safely back to the main campus of Treetops Resort.
