My wife and I spent an amazing weekend at the Snowbird Inn the last weekend of July. The scenic beauty of the property coupled with our comfortable, clean room made for a wonderful stay. The gourmet breakfast meals were out of this world. We were accustomed to continental style when we stayed at other hotels in TC over the years and this blew us away. The location of this 100 year old quaint Inn allows for a short trip to the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes on Lake Michigan, Leland, Northport and Suttons Bay. You won't fine a nicer hostess than Alice who by the way was personally responsible for our wonderful morning meals. We will be back. Phil and Suzanne
We recently spent four nights in the "Thelma" room complete with its own ensuite (vs. going down the hall to a private one). Amenities and services by the Psenka family were tip-top right down to bottled water in our room every day, fresh wine glasses, fresh high-ball glasses plus housekeeping services. Lisa and her mother, Alice, are top of the line innkeepers from the welcoming visits, snacks, and breakfasts to die for right down to dessert after breakfast! Alice and Lisa sat with us, if they had time, to visit while we ate. Roaming the property was just the best; they truly made us feel like family! I honestly thought I was back on Grandma's farm. Seriously. Just GO!
So I’ve traveled to the Leelanau Peninsula over twenty times in my life for vacation, wine tasting or weddings and I have passed the Snowbird Inn countless times. This past June I was finally able to check it out. The Snowbird Inn is by far is my favorite place to stay. Alice and a bottle of wine greeted us. Beyond being an excellent host, she has an incredibly cute bed and breakfast that speaks to the surrounding areas of Northern Michigan. The Snowbird is ideally nestled in between Glen Arbor and Leland which allows for many options regarding activities. When I’m back in the area, I will be staying at the Snowbird.
Alice was wonderful and most accommodating, especially to my 'no carbs' dietary requirements. We stayed in the Jane room and it was very comfortable (although the bed was more comfortable than the cot - but, we didn't even ask for the cot so I used it so my mom could have the bed). Mom can still make it up & down the stairs, but I would not recommend this for handicapped as the bedrooms and baths are upstairs (however, the out buildings may be more so? - you best ask). It was a great place to stay, quiet and comfortable. The wraparound porch was awesome. Would come back again - just don't forget to tell them your dietary requirements ASAP. Alice ran off to the store when we arrived to make sure I was taken care of and while she was most gracious I felt guilty (my bad). Don't go by online booking - be sure to call, they may have room after all.…
We were in the area for a family reunion, so 11 members of our extended family stayed at the Snowbird Inn for the weekend. If we ever get a chance to return the area (and it's well worth another visit), we would hope to get a room at the Snowbird Inn. Our hosts, Alice and Joe, made us feel at home. The breakfasts were fantastic, the bedrooms were spacious, and the beds were comfortable. The front porch was a great place to relax and catch up on some reading, while the front rooms were good places to hang out with family and friends for a few minutes. They had snacks (healthy and otherwise) available at any time, as well as bottled water and coffee. It added up to a wonderful visit to northern Michigan. We hope to return some day.
