If you are thinking of a stay in the Traverse City MI area and want to escape the summer crowds, head up the Leelanau Penninsula to the Inn at Black Star Farms. As the website indicates, it's a working farm, but they have a delightful little Inn on-property and its right in the heart of the Leelanau wine trail. Black... More

A last minute decision before the tourist season made it almost impossible to find a nice B&B in or near Traverse City as most were still closed for the season, AND THEN WE FOUND THIS with one room left, being told it was small. We jumped at it with little choice. The results were on our next visit we'd choose... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this Inn mid-week. The room was very comfortable. The property is just beautiful. You can walk through the farm and enjoy their onsite vineyard. They offer a wine tasting with hors d'oeuvres each evening in a quaint bar area or we chose to sit outside. The breakfast is fabulous! Most are... More

We stayed here the weekend of the Fourth and could not have been more pleased. It is the perfect location if you want to leave and visit other spots within the Traverse City/Sleeping Bear area, or you can be just as content to remain on the property and enjoy the scenery, animals, and how peaceful it is. We liked the... More

I booked this three day excusion a week before we went, and it turned out to be one of the best getaways we have ever experienced! The Inn and the entire property is so beautiful that we melted away three days too fast!! I would strongly suggest this location is you want some major R&R and delicious wine.

My husband and I were so excited for our stay at BSF after researching many inns on the Leelanau Peninsula and seeing all the great reviews for it on Trip Advisor. I was happy with our stay and we enjoyed our time there, but I have to say that it did not live up to my 5 star expectations. I'll... More

We chose The Inn at Black Star Farms based on excellent reviews and proximity to some notable wineries. We were beyond satisfied. The Inn is absolutely beautiful and rooms are tastefully elegant. The place felt very private and was really quiet too. There was a bottle of wine chilled and waiting for us, as well a chance to taste all... More

This was our second trip to The Inn @ Black Star Farms.....a "jewel" hidden in Sutton's Bay, just north of Traverse City and only approx. a four hour scenic drive from Canada! We were there in off-season and were treated to an upgraded room..The Atlas....magnificent. The hospitality of staff and friendliness of other guests, the delicious happy hour appetizers, free...

We spent a night here mid-May as a home base for a wine tour. Excellent and friendly pre-trip communication. Our room was lovely. The breakfast was delicious and had locally sourced foods where possible. We'd like to come again sometime inseason so we can visit the restaurant. A class act all around.

Just returned from a relaxing two night stay at Black Star. Stayed in Castor/Pollux room . Extra bedroom made it convenient for our grown daughter to join us and still have privacy. Outstanding breakfast daily, appetizers and wine every evening, vineyard and horse barns made for a great spring getaway. Staff attentive to all our needs.
