My husband and I are not typically B&B people... introverts that we are, all the mingling can be a little unnerving for us. We booked this inn a) because the reviews were excellent but mainly because b) it was an available and reasonably priced option for an overnight stop on the way to Traverse City. However, we were very pleasantly... More

The Cartier Mansion B&B was the first stop of our honeymoon. We decided to travel the Lake Michigan circle tour and were happy we were able to secure the last room at the Mansion. We stayed in the Blue Silk room and couldn't have been happier! We were greeted by beautiful landscaping and a welcome from Gary, an owner at... More

We spent a wonderful 3 nights here and would highly recommend it. The home is so well preserved and beautiful. The hospitality of the family that runs it was fabulous.

Cartier Mansion is a lovely B & B, rich in local history and kept beautifully throughout the last century with original appointments and construction. We were in the cottage room, which is absolutely charming. The clawfoot tub in the corner was unique, and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. It is a relatively short walk to the shops and restaurants, but... More

Simply put, The Cartier Mansion is the nicest B&B we have stayed at. Andrew greeted us warmly and gave us a tour of the mansion and escorted us to the King Suite. Whereas, all of the mansion is well done, the King Suite was the best! To the available bicycles, to the large inventory of DVDs, to the quality of... More

We love the Cartier Mansion. This was our second visit. Andrew is a great host. It's over 100 years old and they are only the 3rd owners. They have preserved the integrity of the home and its great that they are sharing it with the community. We miss the store Sue Ann used to have in the barn. Breakfasts are... More

Sue Ann and her son Andrew were very pleasant and shared some of the history of the house. Breakfast was wonderful, and Andrew even cooked something special for my husband. I would highly recommend staying here.

We were greeted by Gary and Sue Ann with wonderful enthusiasm. Gary shared the history and a short tour of the house. The mansion was built in 1905 and still has almost all of the original architecture. We stayed in the king suite which was very spacious and lovely. They have a very nice coffee/tea bar outside of the rooms... More

We stayed for two nights at the end of June as part of our honeymoon. The Cartier Mansion really lived up to, and exceeded, all expectations. Aside from the amazing home and wonderful room, there are so many little amenities, such as a personal French press, wine selection or available beach towels that made this place one of a kind....
