A stay at a B&B is such a different and pleasurable experience compared to any hotel. No B&B demonstrates this better than the Wellington Inn. Set in a neighborhood filled with Victorian-era homes, this historic home has been lovingly and authentically restored to reflect the time when it was built. Each room has been individually and tastefully decorated with Victorian furniture and antiques. The innkeepers, Barb and Hank, provide a family-like atmosphere that encourages visitors to talk and share tales of travel over delicious and filling breakfasts. Plenty of stories are available about the home and its place in Traverse City history. A long-time Traverse City resident, Barb can answer any question you can think of regarding local attractions and restaurants. Bonus: you can walk to Traverse City’s lively downtown which is filled with great shopping and fine restaurants. We have now been regular guests here for the past seven years and cannot imagine staying anywhere else. Highly recommended.
