Visiting mid winter in Traverse City is affordable, obtainable, and way fun! Was our first stay at the Cherry Tree Inn. Special was buy a night, get the second night half off. Granola bars on the bed, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies at the desk, comp breakfast, pool, jacuzzi, fire place, library, and a front desk that goes the distance to help with dining options and area things to do. Staff were pleasant, and housekeeping was quiet in their morning duties. Up front parking and a view of the bay to give you mini-mind vacations long after you leave. This may just have to be a regular mid winter vacation stop for us!
