We recently were part of a family gathering near Traverse City. Making room for others in the family home, we reluctantly opted to stay at a B&B. Little did we know we would be staying at a place that was so wonderful that we ended up late to each day's family activities. Can't say how much we enjoyed our sunlit room and overall ambiance of Country Hermitage. Beautifully sited on acres of orchards and rolling farm lands, and featuring a charmingly landscaped grotto and pond (perfect spot for quiet reading and conversation) the inn is simply stunning.
The B&B is only eclipsed by Lisa and Carl's hospitality. Their warmth and willingness to help, providing great information about the area made' us feel very welcome.
But words fail in attempting to describe chef Carl's extraordinary breakfast feasts. Each morning presented us with a gourmet's delight. Stay there if only for breakfast.
We will definitely be return visitors!
