We are a full-service conference center located centrally at the base of northern Michigan. We offer a place to meet, retreat, celebrate and learn. Kettunen Center is the ideal setting for any group gathering including meetings, retreats, conferences, reunions, camps, banquets and more!

Our year-round facility is located on 153 acres of rolling hills and forests along a beautiful lakefront in Tustin, MI. We provide beauty and tranquility in a natural setting with many opportunities to unwind and explore while taking care of business and learning.

Kettunen Center offers a complete experience that nourishes the soul as well as the mind. We offer meeting spaces, recreation activities, and relaxation all in an up north atmosphere. Lodging for up to 200 in our hotel-style or bunk-style rooms, multiple meeting spaces, recreational activities, top-notch food service, and outstanding hospitality make our facility one of the best in the region.

Kettunen Center is owned and operated by the Michigan 4-H Foundation and for more than 50 years, we’ve welcomed businesses, families, organizations and other groups to enjoy our clear lake and soothing landscapes. We can’t wait to welcome your group to Kettunen!

Helen Devos Children's Hospital hosted our nursing "At Our Best" training sessions at Kettunen Center this past fall.  The staff was warm, welcoming and very professional in accommodating our needs.  The facilities and surrounding lake are a beautiful spot to hold an event.  We look forward to working with the folks at Kettunen Center again.

Over the last 9 years my career at Spectrum Health has brought me to many wonderful events and places.  Without hesitation my best memories in my professional career have occurred at Kettunen Center.  It is a wonderful combination of beautiful spaces with an amazing setting while providing excellent meeting spaces, food and accommodations.  Over the years we have had a wide array of teams from Spectrum Health come up to take advantage of the space and groups are always anxious to return.  If you are in search of functional and affordable conference space, overnight capabilities located in a beautiful northern Michigan setting you need look no further.

"I just stayed at your beautiful lodge.  The food was spectacular!  The view was beautiful!  The staff was eager to serve and SO pleasant.  I had to ask myself where I was....you just don't get that type of quality anymore."


"Our team said it was the best retreat and the best location that we have ever had!  Great job!
