Wife and I stayed only one night but we really enjoyed the Inn. The young owners appear to love what they do and that reflects on the care of the Inn. The room we were in was amazing, king bed, couch,2 chairs with covers over them so they can be washed, small table and 2 chairs and porch with another table and chairs. Would recommend a stay.

We just arrived home from this fabulous getaway! There was 4 of us my husband, mom and step-father. This Inn was perfect, the room was clean and homey. We stayed in the Galleon room. The young couple who run it are wonderful. We mentioned a fire the next day fire wood was in the pit and lit for us that evening, they even joined us around the fire for a chat. The location is great, absolutely peaceful, view of the lake, close to the car ferry, and not far from all the action. The shared common room is very nice and had everything you could need or want. They even supplied corn hole and ladder ball yard games. We would highly recommend staying here, we hope to get back here again next year.

This place was a perfect spot for me. Across the street from Late Michigan? 5 minutes to a good restaurant and a great spot to photograph a sun set, or catch a cruise. The room was great!! Two Queen size beds. Clean and quiet. May not be one of these fancy places but I don’t need all of 5gat!!

The location really does not matter, just that the hotel is about 5 miles north of Ellison Bay. So you if you are looking for it in Ellison Bay you will not find and your GPS will tell you to continue driving. The hotel is a very pleasant place to stay. The manager who checked me in, was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure I had everything I wanted. The hotel does not have cable TV but I was told that they have Roku and CBS All Access - I did not use either. The wifi was excellent (for a hotel). Unfortunately I was traveling alone to attend a workshop in the area so my wife was not with me. This would have been a great place to spend romatic time together.
