We just stayed in the Oviatt House on our way back from Mackinac Island. The room was very comfortable and the food was delicious. The location is perfect for walking into town or to the lake. The innkeeper, Julia, is very helpful. We highly recommend staying here.
Wonderful place. Very kind and Sweet owners .delicious food and breakfast , lovely bedroom, I' ve been there june 2015 , 12th to 14th .the owners love to talk,to Guide you around Leelanau península. I loved to play the piano att the living Room !! :) I Will keep those two days in my heart. Hope can be back Someday. My dream since I was a teenager was to visit Michigan state, It came true when I was 40 years old in the best way as possible , It was wonderful !! Best regards from Brazil Maria Valéria.

I stayed recently for a girls' weekend. Great location, amazing food, and the innkeeper was wonderful. Can't recommend it highly enough. Rooms are small but cozy and comfortable. Walking distance to downtown which is great. Wine and snacks are available in the evening.
My husband and I took a “gypsy” trip through Michigan...no plans and no reservations. Although I’m sure it doesn’t happen often, Oviatt House had a room available at the last minute. The house is tidy, welcoming and comfortable. Although we did not have a private bath, it did not present any inconvenience. Julia made a wonderful breakfast, and we enjoyed the meal with seven other guests with a great conversation. I would choose this B&B again!
My husband and I stayed here while having a recent get away to Traverse City. Location is great-just a 5 minute walk to downtown with many theaters, shops and restaurants . And the Rare Bird brewery is just across the street and The Filling Station-another great brewery with the best pizza is a short walk away. Lots to do in TC and the Oviatt House is convenient. We stayed in the Hammond Room-largest shower I’ve ever seen! Bed had nice firm mattress too.Breakfasts are delicious and Julie accommodates special needs. Snacks are available during the day for guests. Julie was kind to provide me cooler ice packs since I left mine at home. My only suggestion for improvement is some work in the yard to make it more attractive and give it street appeal.
