We stayed at Traverse Bay Inn for two nights, encompassing our anniversary in mid-October. We read the reviews on T.A. and decided to give it a whirl. We were very pleasantly surprised to find out how lovely this place is - for just $44 per night plus tax we had a two-level accommodation. The top floor had two double beds and wide-screen TV, the bottom floor had a bedroom with king bed, TV and nice sconce lighting, a bathroom, efficiency with fridge, stove, all dinnerware, pans, utensils, kitchen towel, washcloth and dishsoap, paper towel (and even a wine opener! ), living area with couch situated directly across from a wide-screen TV, which was on the wall above the kitchen table that could seat 4. We had a wonderful anniversary watching the Tigers clinch the pennant. Everything was clean as a whistle and very homey --there was even an iron and board in the hall closet! We hope to return every October, and possibly even next month when our California daughter comes in for Christmas (she wants to make sure she sees some snow while she's here in Michigan!).
