The smell of lavender is absolutely divine and assaults your senses as soon as you step out of your vehicle.  It's virtually impossible to arrive at a lavender farm and not gasp at the utter beauty of the soft purple blooms swaying in the breeze!  It's absolutely breathtaking!

Lavender Hill Farm - Boyne City, Michigan (Near Charlevoix)


We just discovered Lavender Hill Farm! What a lovely spot to visit near Charlevoix!

Established in 2003, Lavender Hill Farm is one of the largest commercial lavender farms in Michigan.

Embark on guided tours ($5) or free walking tours throughout the farm.  There's also a mile of trails to discover additional lavender gardens! Take lots of pictures as the area is just gorgeous!

They are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily May through October but the blooms photographed above are in full bloom in July.



We just love the shop at Lavender Hill Farm.  It's filled with lavender goodies such as satchels, soaps, plants and so much more!  We enjoyed Lavender Fizz drink, Lavender cookies and of course, Moomers' Lavender ice cream.  What a fun afternoon!

Address: 7354 Horton Bay Rd N, Boyne City, MI 

Where I Recommend To Stay Nearby: Boyne City has lots of great lodging accommodations!  Here is a great list!


Shades of Lavender Farm - Mattawan Michigan


Shades of Lavender Farm is a lovely place to pick your own lavender (they provide scissors!) and wander past all the variety of lavender. 

Be sure to stop into their lovely shop for everything Lavender! Lavender caramels, tea, loose lavender, soaps and so much more!

Location: 47222 24th St, Mattawan, MI 49071

Where I Recommend To Stay Nearby: Kalamazoo is your closest bet for hotels.  We have stayed at the Country Inn and Suites, and we love the Radisson as it is right downtown for all the nightlife!  You can walk everywhere from this location. Here are additional hotels and accommodations in Kalamazoo.


Cherry Point Farm and Market - Shelby Michigan

Not only is Cherry Point Farm a great place for viewing lavender fields, but you can also shop their farm market! Lots of local produce!  While you are there, try their homemade cherry pie, fresh bread and other delicious treats. They also make their own jams, jellies, fudge, cookies, muffins, donuts, and other goodies so try them out!  

Lavender is in bloom through July, often lasting into August but if you want to be sure, call the farm for up to date information. 

Cherry Point Farm is also home to the famous Lavender Labyrinth that is a great spot to meditate, relax and free your mind.

Location: 9600 W Buchanan Rd, Mears, MI


Michigan Lavender Festival


Each year, I am just giddy to go to the Original Michigan Lavender Festival held at Eastern Michigan Fairgrounds in Imlay City, MI.  Grab the current date of the festival on our August Calendar of Michigan Events.

One of my favorite things is to grab a bowl of Lavender Ice Cream as I wander the vendors tables.  YUMMY!

  • Tons of Food Trucks
  • 175 Vendors (inside the barns and outside)
  • Free classes and demos
  • Lots of music!



Address: 195 Midway St, Imlay City, MI

Where I Recommend To Stay Nearby: Days Inn By Wyndham
