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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
