Life around Portage Ridge

Onekama is a quaint cottage beach town on the shores of Lake Michigan and Portage Lake. Still with quiet streets, granddad trees, small family-owned ice cream shops and beaches where you hear the waves instead of people.

Life at Portage Ridge is made up of sunset after sunset and warm days with sand between your toes. Enjoy hiking the trails along the land’s lakeshore, world-class Arcadia Bluffs golf course (only seven miles from your door), sail into the historic Portage Point Inn for drinks or a meal, shopping turn of the century downtown Manistee, or a fun filled evening at Little River Casino.

If you are looking for more days on the water join the Portage Lake Yacht Club and enjoy the camaraderie of local sailors or jump on your boat and take a day trip to Arcadia, Frankfort or one of the many other ports of call. Portage Ridge is located just 3 miles from downtown Onekama and 15 minutes north of Manistee which offers gourmet dining, theatre, boutique shops and state-of-the-art medical facilities.This serene place is what dreams are made of, and this is one dream that is well within your reach.
