X2 on Copper Harbor. I know you're looking for lower Michigan but if you have the time Copper Harbor is worth the drive.

It depends on whether you consider the UP or just northern lower P.

As a Buckeye that has been to every suggestion I think I'd go for TC. If you have never been there , there is just so much for a couple. More wineries, craft beer, good no great food. Fishtown , Sleeping Bear dunes.

There are many many good hotels in TC, and prices.. B&B's , casinos, resorts. beach front, etc.

Did I mention craft beer, distillery?

And remember - I'm a Buckeye

If your considering the UP think about Chamberlins Ole Forest Inn B/B just outside of Curtis overlooking Big Manistique Lake or The Nahma Inn in the Historic town of Nahma staff and owners have been great in past stays.

be sure and check out some of the beautiful light houses up there. just do what some others suggested. just go for a drive and stop often and check out the beaches and light houses. and just find a nice bed and breakfast wherever your at when your done for the day. and you've got to see a sunset over the water.

Default getaway

If you are looking for just a nice romantic getaway, Garland, near Lewiston, has some little log cabins that they rent out, and shouldn't be too busy in the fall. They have a great restaurant. Haven't been there in a while, but my sweety sure loved the peace and quiet and ambiance. Check it out on line

Stayed at this bed and breakfast a couple of a week ago, great rooms, beautiful place, unreal breakfast and even has a pond on property that you can fish in. It is northeast of the main drag of Traverse City close enough to do other things. http://www.countryhermitage.com/. Take her to the Mission Table on Old Mission Peninsula great food and great view of west arm of Grand Traverse Bay, http://www.missiontable.net/mt/Default.htm.

The Root Cellar Resort on Lake Gogebic! This is a great clean place to stay/eat and it is only 20 mins from the Porky Mtns and Lake of the Clouds. At the base of the road up to Lake of the Clouds is Silver City, it is a very nice beach to stroll along and the water is crystal clear. I love swimming out to around 15-20' of water with my snorkel gear and dive the massive rock formations to find Agates and other precious stones/rocks. Always make the trip north from there to Copper Harbor and do some diving in the frigid waters there as well. Awesome Vacation every year.

If you are wine drinkers, hit up the west side of the state. I booked a place near Saugatuk with a jacuzzi tub for 2 nights and spent the entire day Saturday driving her around to breakfast, the wineries trying everything, lunch, more wineries, and then dinner, a soak in the tub with a new purchased bottle o' vino and then a massage...

Dang I need to book another trip.
