Winter at DELAMAR is a cozy and magical time of year. Our fireplaces are roaring, while the weather outside remains blustery and cold. Snowflakes fall all around, making it feel like you’re in a snow globe as you peer out the windows and onto Grand Traverse Bay.
We’ve curated an array of seasonal activities for you to enjoy all winter long.
Snuggle up, settle in and explore our cozy, fun list of winter experiences!

Head to any of our bars and ask the bartender to craft you this month’s curated cocktail. This winter our team of mixologists are dreaming up a unique seasonal cocktail that features local ingredients. You can feel good about these sips as a percentage of sales from each curated cocktail will go to a local non-profit partner. Cheers!
Embark on a winter wonderland adventure – without sinking knee-deep in the snow! Stop by our front desk to borrow a pair of complimentary snow shoes.
When the winter weather turns frigid and you feel like staying in, cozy up fireside in our lower lobby with games and hot chocolate. We’ve got everything from the classics like Monopoly and Chess, to new family favs, such as Yahtzee! Regardless of your age or interests, take a peek in our game cupboard to find some fun that feels right for you!
Gaze at the stars as you snuggle up by one of our outdoor fire pits. Stop by the front desk to grab a s’mores kit, or order yourself a delicious glass of wine to enjoy by the fire. Sit back, relax, and allow yourself to soak in the coziness of winter. Fire pits are lit by 5:00 pm daily and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. S’mores kits are complimentary for hotel guests. The public are welcome to utilize our fire pits and may purchase s’mores kits from the front desk for $10.

Warm up with us this winter in one of our two heated pools. Heated to a cozy 94 degrees and open year-round, DELAMAR has the only outdoor heated pool in Traverse City.
