My husband and I chose the Inn at Chateau Grand Traverse as our home base for a 3 day visit to the Traverse City area. The house is beautiful. There is a well-equipped workout room and sauna, 2 huge common living rooms, 2 smaller common rooms, and a nice breakfast room. If you're lucky, you'll get to see the secret dungeon, too. Super clean, up to date decorating and comfortable furniture. Our room was really spacious, with a balcony, kitchenette and king bed. There wasn't a desk in the room, but considering we had access to the rest of the big house, that didn't really matter. The setting is very pretty, peaceful and quiet. Breakfast was so-so for me, but my husband loved the make-it-yourself belgian waffles. The location is very central on Old Mission Peninsula. We enjoyed biking right from the house. If you tend to stay put on vacation, this is a great place to stay.
