Uncorked 2017

Do you like wine? Do you want a mini-vacation? Do you hate the traffic and the crowds of summer in a hot tourist destination? If you answered yes to all those questions, keep reading because we have a deal you’re going to love!

The Traverse City Econolodge is partnering up with the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail for the month long Uncorked event. Stay with us midweek (Sun-Thurs) in any of our newly remodeled standard rooms (two double beds, two queen beds, or one single king bed) anytime throughout the month of May and enjoy two tickets for complimentary wine tasting at more than 20 wineries, and a special Uncorked gift bag (a $100 value!), for only $87. 95 (plus tax) per night. It’s a great deal and a great way to discover new wine without having a buy an entire bottle. We offer a continental breakfast to get you started, free wifi to plan your tour, and an indoor pool and hot tub to relax and refresh after a long laborious day of wine tasting.

This offer is only available by calling us directly and advanced reservations are required, so don’t delay plan your get away today! 231-943-3040
