Leelanau Peninsula Friendly, Old Mission Snooty

Just returned from a 25th anniversary trip to Traverse City area. Definite difference in people on one peninsula from another. I guess Old Mission Inn and the OM peninsula don't need our business. Next time only Leelanau-especially Leland!

You would need to give more info than you have for any of us to give credence to your post. You also only have 2 posts.....that isn't saying a lot. Sorry.

Wow... sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. I've never encountered any negative people during the wine tours. It's always been a good, laid back day for us.

I'll be up there for the next four days and I'll try to get to the bottom of this. Hey maybe someone hung a kick me sign on your back.

Have a great time Rono! I'm taking my oldest daughter to EL for a tour a football game this weekend. She thinks she might want to be a Spartan!!!!

I go to Old Mission and all their wineries every year and love it! I never had anyone be “snooty” to me. The people that work at Peninsula Cellars are hysterical. I have not been to the Old Mission Inn but it gets great reviews on here.

I have lived in Traverse City for 20 years. You are right on the money. Old Mission is filled with a bunch of rich, snooty people. The people who work in the wine shops, probably do not live on OM peninsula or if they do live there, they don't have the money. That is why they are friendly. Just sayin'.

It is joked about by us lowly peasants who live in normal houses without a view of the water. Since we are the #2 travel destination in Michigan we don't advertise it but so true. A lot of the docs live out there whose wives have no jobs, but need jobs...
