Sweet Temptations

Serving homemade ice cream and treats, there is a little something for everyone here! What’s really cool is that you can watch them make their famous ice cream from a window in the store located at Grand Landing. This ice cream shop is open all year long – they even offer half off ice cream when it’s snowing!

The Front Porch

Head across the drawbridge to this beloved ice cream spot in Spring Lake! The porch itself offers swings to relax in as you finish your cone of their homemade ice cream.  If your name is featured on the sign out front you get a free ice cream cone! For those trainers out there, this is also a location of a Pokemon Go gym. Photo credit: Kevin Stinehart

Miss Lisa’s

Miss Lisa’s in Ferrysburg is a classic. So much so that they add up your order on their trusty notepad!
