My husband and I stayed in one of the spa rooms for our anniversary getaway. The room was very clean and inviting. But THE VIEW was the best part of the room! We were able to snuggle in bed while enjoying the beautiful sunset over the water. The lake was just a stones throw away from the back door of... More

The room was clean and the staff was great. An update on the linens would be wonderful but what was provided was adequate. We had a king suite with a jetted tub. It was nice and peaceful until around 1:00 a.m. I believe we had the hotel's laundry facility or something like that above us. It was noisy enough to... More

We stayed here one night in August before taking the ferry over to the island. The first room we went in was FULL of bugs - someone had left the doors open and wowsa. Front desk staff kindly moved us down the hall. This place is right on the water, so keep your doors closed at dusk, or the lights... More

I'm sorry to hear that our breakfast was lacking a few of your favorites. It sounds like our team could have made you feel more welcome during your meal, which is disappointing. I'll be sure to mention these comments to them, and keep your input in mind when we go over the menu. That said, I hope you enjoyed the... More

Our family enjoyed 2 nights in a two room suite. Nice and big! Beds were good. Glad to have refrigerator and coffee maker. Only 1 bathroom, 2 would be nice. the sofa and recliner were a bit old but the rest of the furniture was fine. When I sat in the middle of the sofa I thought my bottom might... More

My family of 4 (2 kids) recently stayed at the Bavarian Hous. It is an older hotel that could use some updating, but it was super clean, which is most important to me. We had a ground floor room that opened up onto a small deck and the back of the hotel. Our room and deck had a terrific view... More

The next time you stay in St. Ignace, we'd love to welcome you back! Take care, Howard Cole, Owner More

I agree that the price is reasonable and the location has its charm. But this is not a place where you can really lean in to relaxing. There are strict warnings about the seagulls ("flying rats") and the bugs that will swarm you if you leave your screen open at night. All true and wise warnings, but not a relaxing... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, Jeannie. While I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your time relaxing on the beach, I'm sorry there were a few parts of your stay that could have been better. While we love the comforting and classic feel of our hotel, we always want to make the appropriate upgrades. I can certainly... More

Stayed two days August of 14. Based on other reviews we found the hotel as expected, clean and in good, not great, mechanical shape. Location is hard to beat, staff excellent. Continental breakfast is pretty extensive, but just average. We do not choose hotels based on free food. BH fit our needs very well, great staff. Kid made use of... More

I'll give you the good, the bad, and the little bit ugly about Bavarian Haus. Things that I liked: 1) The staff was helpful and informative about things and gave good pointers about the area. 2) We found a coupon and it made the price very nice for our stay. 3) We were on the first floor and enjoyed the...

Thanks for taking the time to leave your detailed feedback, Brian. I'm sorry to hear that a couple of aspects of your stay weren't stellar, though.

This hotel is very clean. The location on the water is great. Breakfast was OK. What makes this place great is the staff! They gave us great recommendations on where to eat and what to do in the UP. Stuff we hadn't considered doing, they recommended and we really like it. Pool area is also nice.
