“Most spacious rooms ever--combined with balcony lakeview!”
Reviewed September 28, 2010

We loved staying here! Our multi-generational family had plenty of room and yet sleeping privacy that worked well. The kitchenette meant that we could keep things cold for the next day's travels. The view from the balcony was beautiful, and there was even a boat playground to delight the three year old. Breakfast waffles were a treat--especially with the warm cherry topping and whipped cream--a lovely vacation splurge--and all was included for the very reasonable room rate! Jonathon, the hotel manager, was most helpful and gave us maps and recommendations for dinner that proved to be just perfect!

Good day!

Thank you for your kind review. I'm glad my suggestions worked well for you. The cherry topping is so good on the waffles - and by itself (not that I would know...)! We're glad you made it home safely. Have a very nice fall.

Best,

In the early Fall season - The local ducks seem to beg you to admire them; the seagull and wave sounds cannot be duplicated by a CD. Sit in one of the comfortably cushioned chairs, grab a good book, and enjoy the ever changing view between chapters while sipping a glass of Traverse area wine.

In the Winter season - The wine/book/view combination remains but the view is very different and equally as beautiful. Bundle up, walk out your main floor sliding door and take a walk along the frozen bay. Just in from riding or watching the Iceman Cometh race? Do some stretches in the generously sized bathroom and relax in a warm shower that spills out plenty of water.

In the morning after your in room coffee, enjoy a freshly made, large waffle, cut apple slices over it and finish it off with syrup. Don't forget to pour yourself an apple or orange juice - all included in the price of your room. Heaven.

Reservations have always been easy to make either via phone or on their website. When made via phone, the Guest Service reps sound as friendly and able to help as they are during your stay.

We are not professional travelers, just a couple who look forward to enjoying each other's company whenever we can break away. The Cherry Tree Inn is our place of choice to help that happen.

We rated them Outstanding in every category on their Comment card as we always enjoy our stay, and are always delighted! (Maybe it's the waffles . . .)

Wow! What a review! Thank you for your nice descriptions and the time you took to write them. I think others on tripadvisor.com can see from your review how wonderful the Traverse City area is and how the Cherry Tree fits right in for some R&R for those visiting the area. Thank you so much.

We found this hotel by accident as we were travelling in northern Michigan for wine tasting. From the very beginning dealing with the staff, to cleanliness of the premises, the whole facility being well maintained right down to the complimentary chocolate chip cookies and breakfast we were delighted.

We had no itinerary and were just going to book another hotel during this trip but chose to stay another night because we enjoyed the property so much.

The hotel was immaculately clean. Everything was outstanding from the complimentary warm chocolate chip cookie at check-in to the option to stay an extra night for half price the night before we left. I cannot say enough good things about Cherry Tree Inn & Suites. Our stay was fantastic; the staff was unbelievably helpful with anything we wanted. The purpose of our stay was for our 6th anniversary and we were so impressed that we are pretty sure it will also be the location for our 7th. My wife is very picky and suffers from a pretty strong wanderlust, so I was absolutely shocked when she told that she actually wanted to return to the hotel (which she has never done before!). I also didn’t tell the hotel but my wife is a registered IATA travel agent. She doesn’t like to tell anyone because she wants to know how the hotel treats regular guests not just ones that are in the business. I have never experienced a hotel before that offers the customer service level of a bed & breakfast, it was just surreal. Thank you Cherry Tree Inn & Suites for a wonderful 6th anniversary!!!

Stayed here for 1 night while on a trip around Lake Michigan and the upper peninsula. I had read the good reviews of this place and tried to book 1 night on their website. I was unable to book just 1 night, there is a 2 night minimum they said when I called. I still wanted to stay here so I did a search and found that there are websites where I could book 1 night, which I did. Go figure.
Now about my stay. We were given a room overlooking the indoor pool. My punishment for only booking 1 night, i guess. They said there weren't any rooms to change to because the hotel was full. The room was painted concrete. The furniture old and outdated. But it was clean. The bathroom was the same, old and small. Thank goodness we were only there 1 night.
Breakfast was a good typical continental. Although there are not enough places to sit. We joined a couple at a table for 4 so that was nice meeting someone new.
All in all I'd never go back for what you get for the price.

Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize that you didn't have a great experience. We will certainly take your concerns to heart and work to improve upon them. At times, we do have two-night minimums on the weekends. But they are not all the time. They are only at certain times of the year. If we have an opening for a one-night stay on a Friday or Saturday, we will certainly help you reserve the room that's available. I'm sorry you felt the pool-side room you booked was punishment for a one-night stay. It was simply the room that was left available. Since we were full, the available rooms out of our 18 rooms types were limited, so the pool-side room was the one that we had available for the date you were looking to stay.

Thank you again for your review. I hope you have a nice fall and end of the year.

Best,

In 2008 our usual spot was booked for our weekend getaway so after reading reviews we decided to give the Cherry Tree Inn a try. We will return to this hotel each year from now on and have recommended many friends to this hotel who have also been satisfied. Quiet area, beautiful view (if you request a water front room), very clean......and I would highly recommend a suite for that special occasion. Comfy sleigh bed, jacuzzi tub, fireplace and spa robes make this a truly relaxing getaway. Just made reservations to return again this year. Can't wait!!

Hello!

Thank you for your reservation. I'm pleased you've enjoyed our hotel and plan to return next year. The Leelanau Suites and Harbor Springs Suites are beautifully large rooms. They are definitely the favorite rooms of the property.

I hope you had a safe trip home. Enjoy the rest of the year. We'll see you again soon!
