Cannonsburg Michigan ~ A Small Community with Big Attractions

Cannonsburg Michigan is a small community northwest of Grand Rapids.  It is

included in the Forest Hills School District and has had residential housing

growth in the last ten years.  There are many elite homes built in this area

because of the natural scenery, prestigious public school system, and proximity

to downtown Grand Rapids.  The small village of Cannonsburg has a long history,

as evidenced by the historic buildings which comprise the commercial hub of

the village today.

 

Honeycreek Inn Cannonsburg Michigan

First, and our personal favorite, is The HoneyCreek Inn,  pictured above.  We

have been enjoying the casual atmosphere and the wonderful food at the

Honeycreek Inn for over 20 years.  It bills itself as "This Pub under

Polish-Irish Management - Be Patient." 

Whatever nationality your roots are planted in, this is a great place to eat!  The bar

has select brews on tap and "The Daily Special" is always worth trying. 

 

Grist Mill Cafe Cannonsburg Michigan

The Grist Mill, pictured above, is a recent addition to Cannonsburg, although the original

building is one of the original businesses, as noted by its name.  The Grist Mill has a

fabulous Deli & Bakery, a lunch room where you can order a meal, a quick stop grocery,

 and gas pumps on the side.  Everything today's Cannonsburg neighbors might need. 

 It is always busy and you can't get a better quick lunch anywhere. 

 

The Bottle Shop Cannonsburg Michigan

 

The Bottle Shop is a beer, wine, and liquor emporium that serves the Cannonsburg area.

This building was the original general store for generations.  If you have a  hankering

for some liquid refreshment, this is the spot to go in Cannonsburg.

Historical Museum Cannonsburg Michigan

This is the Cannonsburg Historical Museum. Cannonsburg was founded in 1842, that is 167

years of local history. We will have to make a special trip to see the exhibits preserved here.

 

Cannonsburg Ski Area Sign Cannonsburg Michigan

 The last big attraction in Cannonsburg is the first for many in our area - Cannonsburg

Ski Area.  This is one of the only local ski areas, the other being Pando, which is smaller.

Their website has a real time web cam, so you can see weather & slope conditions.

Cannonsburg Ski Area Cannonsburg Michigan

As you can see, a nice sunny day in February, the slopes are far from empty.  The

Cannonsburg Ski Area has a large open air concert area that is used in the summer for

Grand Rapids Symphony Presentations, such as the July 4th Pops Concert which is a

local favorite.

 

Our small tour is over, but towns like Cannonsburg  are a vital part of our Greater

Grand Rapids Area.  We have many small towns and villages that have big attractions for

for the West Michigan travelers and outdoor enthusiasts.
