My husband & I just had the pleasure of staying at this charming, beautiful house for a getaway. We stayed in the "Jane" room and were quite surprised with how large it is. Room for a high top table & chairs, and a leather sofa. It was very comfortable, and we slept great in the bed. Alice, the owner is... More

Oh you must stay here! We were warmly greeted by our Hostess, Alice, who is an amazing and very cool lady! Ask her anything about the area and she has the answers. Alice and her daughter, Lisa created a home away from home with the perfect balance of B&B charm, comfort and down to earth atmoshpere. I honestly can almost... More

And the breakfasts are incomparable! Our hostess, Alice, was the most welcoming and easy to be with owner I recall. And she has this deep desire to make the most wonderfully delicious and beautiful breakfasts you can imagine. From the Creme Brulee baked french toast with an incredibly beautiful strawberry tart, fruit and muffins - day one! The fluffiest quiche... More

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Snowbird Inn for 6 days and it was a joy. We received the warmest of welcomes from our charming hostess, Alice. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The highlight for visitors is Alice's fine cooking. I have never known breakfast menus like this before (certainly not what we are... More

Slow down, as you will probably pass the driveway your first time there. The home is on the highway; but, tucked behind a fence, hedges and flowers. A stately home with an expansive front porch with inviting chairs and settees. Alice, owner and proprietor, will likely be waiting for you as she irons linens on the front porch! Alice has... More

I give my wife the credit for finding the Snowbird Inn online. We spent four days enjoying the peace and quiet of this old farm house. It is easy to find, though, and not too far from some wonderful restaurants in the Glen Arbor area. You won't soon be hungry for lunch, though, after the wonderful breakfasts that Alice prepares....

The Snowbird is on the west side of the Leelanau Penisula in northern Michigan, it is close to Leland, a small fishing village with many great restaurants and interesting shops. We had spent most of the day " wining " in the area and got to the Snowbird late afternoon. Alice greeted us with open arms showed us our rooms... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Snowbird. I was at first reluctant to book at the inn because the photos showed a boring place. I was wrong. The inn was warm and inviting and made us feel quite at home. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed. Breakfasts were fantastic with everything made by the... More

We first stayed at the Snowbird Inn in March, 2014 and returned in June for a family gathering. We booked with Lisa (Owner) as soon as we discovered we would be coming back to the area. Our three night stay was wonderful. We booked the same room (Jane) and could not have been happier. Don't look for fancy - expect... More
