Reviewed September 27, 2013

Six pours for free! You can't beat that and they have great Rieslings. The view from the back of the property is outstanding. Best gift shop on the peninsula. We have had nothing but pleasant experiences at this winery. Don't miss out...stop and enjoy!

“Winery Inn was a great experience”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

The inn was a great experience. Our room was big and comfortable. You get a bottle of wine with the room which was very nice especially when enjoyed throughout the beautiful house. Breakfast was good and overall was a very good experience. We would certainly return. The only negative of our stay was that we heard the people in the room next us talking in the morning very clearly. The walls must have been very thin.

“A great wine tasting experience.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

The views of Traverse Bay, are breathtaking. My favorite wine is the late Harvest Reisling. They have a bed and breakfast with room for 6 couples, a pool table, a sauna, a relaxation room and a breakfast room. This is one of my favorite vacation spots in Michigan.

“Winery Inn worth the money!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We did not have the pleasure of staying at the Inn, but our family did so we did get to visit and enjoy the experience with them. They had the entire place rented out and hosted a rehearsal dinner in the wine cellar. The views were breathtaking and I would highly recommend a weekend getaway here with family and/or friends. Having the whole inn to themselves, not to mention complimentary breakfast and daily bottles of wine, are fabulous perks and make for a memorable experience. Did I mention they have a very nice selection of wine?
