Michigan’s Most Spectacular
& Flexible Meeting Facility!


Hi, I am Barry Owens, GM at Treetops Resort and I’d like to share with you ten reasons why Treetops is Michigan’s most spectacular meeting venue! We’d love to have you up here...

"Our guests return year after year to work and play in a relaxed atmosphere.  They're looking for a retreat from the daily grind and Treetops Resort delivers that, along with a big dose of hospitality."
Barry Owens, General Manager, Treetops Resort

When it comes to choosing a venue for your next meeting venue we know there are a lot of great choices in Michigan, but, allow me a few moments of your time and I’ll explain why you ought to vault Treetops Resort to the very top of your list!

Spectacular views, world class golf and flexible meeting space are just the beginning...

1. Location, Location, Location We Have It!

          Location is everything – whether you’re selling real estate or enticing attendees to your next event. We believe we have a distinct advantage in the location department. Only minutes off I-75 just outside the picturesque town of Gaylord, Treetops is the closest full service resort to metro Detroit. A convenient 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive from all major cities in Michigan and the perfect backdrop to a memorable event experience with over 3,000 acres of spectacular natural beauty for your group to enjoy after business is done! 

Easy to Access Location Means Less Driving & More Fun!

Our location right off I-75 makes us the closest major resort to the metro Detroit area and the rest of the I-75 corridor.  Spend more time playing and less time driving, plus enjoy easy access to the town of Gaylord with its bars, restaurants and other attractions.

4. The Best Golf in The Mid West and Perhaps Anywhere!

          Treetops Resort & Spa is home to 81 holes of championship golf — five distinctly different courses by renowned designers Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Tom Fazio and Rick Smith. Dramatic views, contours and rolling terrain provide a beautiful setting for world-class golf. Treetops is truly the Midwest’s “Must Play” resort and arguably the best collection of golf anywhere in the country.

          In addition to our four 18-hole championship courses Rick Smith’s par three layout, “Threetops”, has received national recognition since it opened, consistently ranking as the #1 par three course in America by Golf Magazine, Golfweek, Golf & Travel and others. For a number of years, Treetops hosted the ESPN Par 3 Shootout. Lee Trevino recorded an ace on #7 during the Shootout in 2001. Makes the most spectacular emergency nine course in the world and a great finale to our other 72 holes! 


5. Excellent Cuisine

          There are endless choices when it comes to completing your event with Treetops' exquisite cuisine and no detail will be overlooked. Start the day off simple with delicious pastries or we can make it elaborate with a home cooked breakfast buffet. In between meetings, groups may need a lift, coffee service or a specialty break fits right in. It's the best way to rejuvenate minds and refresh bodies. At Treetops we have the unique venues to offer your group the intimacy of a sit-down luncheon with time to relax, or if time is short, we can also offer a working buffet.

          After a full-day of business we can host your reception where your group will enjoy a chance to get to know each other and relax with drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Dinner at Treetops is truly an event to look forward to. Our dining service and theme dinners offer a northern Michigan flare that is evident in every event we host, ensuring that your dinner is the perfect end to a busy day of productive meetings. Because your dinner is a private affair, you have the opportunity to discuss goals and ideas without distractions. Choose the option that matches your group and your budget. To complement your dinner, we can suggest an appropriate choice of wines from the area.
