My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights after viewing the Tall Ships in Traverse City. It was a lovely bed and breakfast with views of the water, quiet chairs on the porch and a cool sunken fireplace in the main living room. We were there in a cool Sept, but during the summer one could swim or boat... More

This place is a true gem. Very quiet, beautiful views, clean rooms, and tasty breakfast. (We especially loved Katy's scones.) The owners are kind and laid back. Easy to bike to several wineries from the Inn. We would definitely stay here again.

This bed and breakfast is very relaxing and peaceful. The owner is very accommodating, but is laid back. They really try to conserve, recycle and eat healthy. We did some yoga in the morning, which was great and you could easily come and go. The location is perfect: there are wineries nearby, a few restaurants and plenty of water views!... More

Spent the weekend there this past weekend. The Old Mission peninsula is a very peaceful and serene place. This family run Inn is very quiet and sits right on the bay. I highly recommend it for the delicious vegetarian breakfast and friendly staff. I would love to go back again!

Getting away and going Up North in Michigan, can be hectic and anything but relaxing. A stay at The Neahtawanta Inn is a great way to experience the beauty of Michigan in any season. We've stayed at the Inn about a dozen times, in every season and always enjoy returning. The rooms are pretty, clean and green. The innkeepers, Sally... More

The Neahtawanta Inn is a historic Victorian Inn that is perfect in every way. Owners Sally an Bob are wonderful hosts -- kind, gentle, generous, and supportive but never intrusive. The Inn has its own beach and the jewel-toned water (the colors of the Carribean!) is clear and refreshing for swimming. Breakfasts are organic and farm-to-table, emphasizing the delicious local...

My wife and I took a much needed vacation to Traverse City and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The atmosphere in this inn is so very relaxing. Everyone involved in running the inn were friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and available when needed. The food was great, creative, and well prepared. The location was perfect. We spent...

I love this place. Suffice it to say that my wife and I live in Michigan and we have decided that for as long as we stay here, we will go to Neahtawanta once or twice a year, every year. These are about the only times we will ever stay in a hotel in Michigan. In other words, it's the... More
