My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay. The breakfasts are unbelievable as are the nightly treats. The best breakfasts that we have had at any B & B or restaurant. It was nice to have a choice as to where you wanted to have your breakfast. It was great to eat outside on the deck. The landscaping... More

I guess I will be the first person to leave a 4star review - don't hate me!! Like all of the other reviews, we were blown away with Tesoro Inn. You can tell that so much care has been put into this place..and Les (a chef) and Jane (interior designer) truly make a fantastic team..just by their books and personal... More

Brilliant place. Glorious breakfast served in our room with all the trimmings. Tesoro is a gorgeous home in the middle of a quiet, lovely peninsula that juts north from Traverse City. It's in the midst of wine/farm country and there is NO traffic and no noise. Les cooks, possibly, the BEST breakfast on the continent. Jane (and Les) are low-key,... More

This is the best B&B i have been too. The rooms were spotless, the grounds were amazing and Les is a wonderful chef, the breakfast is fantastic! The food alone is worth the stay and believe me you won't want to leave. Everyone at Tosoro Inn is warm and welcoming.

I would have to second, third, etc, everyone else's commentary about this lovely B & B on the Old Mission Peninsula. We (husband and I) were their last month with our two friends and we all loved it. Can't say enough about Les's cooking skills and Jane's hospitality. I'm glad we were only able to participate in sharing two breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this wonderful B and B located on the Mission Peninsula. Jane and Les have created a true treasure (we asked and Tesoro means treasure in Italian). This B and B is small with two rooms and one suite, but don't let that discourage you. Jane and Les have done an outstanding job... More

Amazing home! Great place to relax! Lovely back yard deck for reading or visiting. Eclectic, warm, inviting atmosphere. Awesome breakfast! My husband devoured huge blueberry pancakes while I savored my first frittata - both so delicious! The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We stayed in the Vinters Suite and loved it! After enjoying wine, live jazz and a... More

Tesoro is simply the very nicest B&B at which we have ever stayed. The common areas and rooms are beautifully appointed and impeccably maintained. As much is made of the restaurants in TC, no meal has been any better than the breakfast prepared by Les at Tesoro. Les and Jane are most gracious hosts and make every stay a memorable... More

Excellent! Les and Jane are perfect innkeepers. They are available and friendly yet somehow manage guests complete privacy. The inn is comfortable, spotless and extremely quiet. The highlight of the stay though are Les' meals! That man can cook! And, bake! Delicious food. I am extremely picky with high standards and my 5 star reviews are few. Tesoro Inn hits... More

This is one of the best places I have stayed in the USA. I have traveled all over the US, Canada, and Mexico. I have stayed or have tried to stay at 4 star plus hotels/B&B's.
