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. The rooms here are a bit dated,but there is a great little balcony with a couple of chairs. Plenty of room for a couple... More

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

What a fun weekend getaway, Christine! It sounds like you had a blast visiting the lake and in Traverse City, which is great. I hope you got to sample plenty of that delicious Michigan wine! The next time you go on vacation, we'd love to welcome you back in. Cheers, Howard Cole, Owner 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

We stayed here because the reviews were so good. Our rooms were on the ground floor and we had a walkout deck to the grassy area, as well as to Lake Huron. We had a million dollar view! Sunrise over the Lake was OUTSTANDING! Breakfast was more than adequate – sausage gravy, biscuits, English Muffins, toast, etc., eggs, yogurt and... More

The room was crap but the view was nice. You can't exactly use the beach for swimming unless you walk a ways. We ended up staying on the island our second night and when we came back in the morning we noticed housekeeping had been there. They cleaned up a little and made the bed and my boyfriend has noticed... More

I'm sorry to hear you didn't have a better visit, Lisa. We would never want to touch your personal property, so we tidy up the rooms while you stay, but then do a full cleaning before the next guest checks in. I can assure you that all items left would be taken care of by our crew right away. That... More

This hotel is diectly on lake huron, and reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly. Go with no expectations and you will be satisfied. I would stay here again. This is a good substitute for the over priced hotels on Mackinac island. You can take a day trip to the island and save a bundle

Right on the shores of Lake Huron we woke to a beautiful sunrise. The hotel room was adequate and comfortable. Nothing spectacular. Breakfast wasn't great but there was juice, toast, bagels and yogurt. We were doing a tour of the Great Lakes so it was a convenient jump off to see. Mackinaw island and the price was right.

A tour of the Great Lakes sounds like the perfect fall vacation! I'm so glad you joined us during your trip. I hope you're enjoying the beautiful sights and fall colors around the lakes. The next time you visit Lake Huron, we'd love to welcome you back in. Take care, Howard Cole, Owner More

I mainly chose this property, for it's lakefront access. The view was very nice, even had a stranded freighter for awhile. And the sunrise was beautiful. All the seagulls weren't really a bother, the rubber dogs were a bit freaky and the beach is not a beach. The play set for kids was nice, even had some sand to play... More
