My husband and I returned to the Terrace Inn after more than a decade. This was our first stay in the summer. The Inn is beautiful, and remodeling has resulted in the availability of some larger, very comfortable rooms. We were very happy to see the dining room open again and planked whitefish again on the menu. The staff was very helpful.
We wish we could have stayed longer than our one night and enjoyed strolls around the beautiful chautauqua of Bay View. This is a very nice, restful place to stay and in a prime location near Petosky and Harbor Springs.
We had a large king bed room on the first floor with large bathroom, jetted tub, lots of windows with nice wooded views. Get one of these rooms if you can--we received the upgrade without asking.
The dining room was very elegant and true to the history of the Inn. Continental breakfast was included, but pretty mediocre with cold french toast.
Note. The website reservation system for the Inn requires a 2 night minimum stay for some rooms, but when we called, this was waived.
