I did a lot of research based on price and view. This place had both! I had great service from the first phone call all the way to check out. The owner and staff were very helpfull and patient with the questions on what the best places to visit during our stay. The room was very clean! The view was... More

A review doesn't get much better than this! Thank you for sharing such kind words, Kelly. It sounds like you had one amazing time at the lake and taking in the sights, which is exactly what a trip to St. Ignace is all about. We hope to see you next time! Take care, Howard Cole, Owner More

I see that the owner responds to a lot of the reviews, which is nice. However, how can you not update things like 20 year old carpet that would really make the place look 100% better? The mattress pad that was used to cover up the box spring, and did not do it too well -- revealing stains on the... More

I'm disappointed to hear you weren't more comfortable during your stay, Tim. While we're proud of the homey and relaxed atmosphere that we offer our guests, it's important that we keep it updated and fresh. Some updates take priority over others, but please know we're always assessing what needs to be worked on next. We'll be sure to keep your... More

We stayed there for our Anniversary 2 weekends ago! Loved our room and our view! We are definitely staying there again the next time we go north! They let us have early check in. I called in the early morning and were checked in by 9:30 a.m.

The hotel is rather dated, though that is very typical of the hotels in this area. However, I think it is likely that this is one of the best of the bunch. Our room, a suite of three queen beds, was absolutely huge, and each of the two rooms had a balcony that overlooked the lake. The balcony is a... More

If you are not looking for room service, and are willing to enjoy nature's beauty - try this place. We stayed there during October 2014 fall season. The hotel is right on shores of Lake Huron. The lake is huge, but it feels like a private pond. Our room faced east, so we saw the morning sunrise and October moon... More

My wife and I stayed here in early September. When we arrived, we found the attendant at front desk very polite. We had a room on the 2nd floor with a wonderful view of the lake.

We were headed to the Traverse City area and a stay at an elegant winery/bed and breakfast, and we stayed at Bavarian Haus for two nights on the way. For the price, it is in my opinion an outstanding deal. The views are unbeatable. We had a patio room and were able to walk out on the beach, and this... More

We enjoy staying at Bavarian Haus Lakefront Inn. The check-in staff is always pleasant and helpful. The additional staff/employees are always courteous. If you are fortunate to be at the Inn between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. in the afternoon you can sit on your balcony or look out your window and see an energetic Black Lab named Rosie playing in... More

It's too bad we didn't have a screen door so we could leave the door open to our balcony. The pool water was cloudy, not very inviting. The view of Mackinaw island was great. Breakfast was good if like cereal.

I'm sorry you didn't get to fully enjoy the balcony. Each room is a little different, but the sliding doors do come with screens. If you ever have any questions or notice something missing, please don't hesitate to let us know. We'd be happy to give it attention right away. That said, I hope you had a great rest of... More

Check in was fine. The customer service was great. The hotel is in a perfect location on the lakefront... That is where positives end. The bed is a joke! I've never slept in such a hard, non-supportive mattress in my life. It seems as if it is just inches from the ground. Was there for a three night stay, so... More

I'm very sorry to hear you didn't get a good night sleep. Your comfort is our top priority, so this is especially disappointing. Not all of our rooms have the same beds, so I wish we could have chatted a bit more to find you a mattress that was more to your liking. I hope we have another chance to... More
