This place and the current owners are just fabulous. A truly remarkable visit, I can't wait to return. There is so much history here and you can feel the passion that owners Angela & Bruce have in every room & every corner. The stories they tell are incredible and be sure to take time to look at all the photos,... More

As many other reviewers have stated, the innkeepers at the Old Mission Inn, Angie and Bruce, are some of the nicest and most welcoming people we have ever met. We really enjoyed talking to them about the Inn and their experiences there. Their passion and pride for the Inn and its history really shows. We stayed in the Apple Blossom... More

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.
