The Old Mission Inn is more than just a hotel, its like visiting family. The owners run the inn and have taken great steps to preserve the history of the hotel, oldest continuous hotel in Michigan dating back to 1869. The history of this Michigan landmark has been preserved in the articles on the walls and items throughout. The Jensen's... More

The owners, Angie and Bruce, are friendly, helpful, down to earth people who tell the amazing tale of the Inn that was built in 1869 and nearly destroyed in the late 90s before they bought it. The view of the bay was awesome. We spent some quality time enjoying it from the rocking chairs on the porch. For breakfast we... More

I needed to spend a couple of days in Traverse City area, but didn't want to stay in the noisy city. The Old Mission Inn, about 15 miles out towards the tip of the Old Mission Peninsula, was a perfect solution. It's a very old inn with a long and interesting history, which the inn owners will delight in telling... More

My wife and I rode our bike up for the weekend. Angie, Bruce and Tyler made us feel welcomed the second we arrived until we left. The inn is full of history and they did an awesome job in restoring it. It was loaded with antiques, including pictures of the 3 previous owners in its 145 year existence. The rooms... More

We stayed at the Old Mission Inn on the way to Mackinaw City, MI. The room was small and the bath was down the hall and shared by others in rooms on the same flooor, but it is crammed with history, has a nice view of the water, and the breakfast was very good. In the evenings, there is a... More

My wife and I visited the Old Mission Peninsula for our 9th wedding anniversary. We happened across the Old Mission Inn in a magazine article, so we made a reservation having never been there (although we did see some very favorable reviews on Trip Advisor). We were very pleasantly surprised on our arrival. Bruce greeted us and spent at least... More

A charming historic Inn. Very friendly Inn Keepers. We saw a beautiful sunrise from our room. They had a bonfire out back. They had menus for selecting a restaurant for dinner. We couldn't stay long enough to get a tour but we got a bit of the Inn history. Very cool.

Innkeeper Angie was very friendly and went out of her way to show us the entire inn and give us the history of the building and it's previous owners. We were upgraded from a one bedroom with a pullout sofa bed to a suite with 2 seperate bedrooms ( we were there with my sister and her husband). We went... More

Angie and Bruce were fabulous! Such great hosts and they made us feel right at home! Angie also told us that they are going to be renovating this winter so each suite has its own bathroom and there won't be anymore shared bathrooms! Angie gave us a great tour of the Inn and told us about its history. While we... More
