Wind in the Pines Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 19 Traverse City B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Thanks Dietmar and Marion, for a lovely comfortable stay.
Beautiful breakfast and room - Pine Cone.
Loved the fact we could have hot drinks when ever we wanted .
Only negative point is that at breakfast we didn't get to see you as the table was all laid out before we arrived.

This beautiful log cabin B&B is located close to Traverse City but nestled in a wooded area in a rural setting. The property is beautifully landscaped. There is a brick patio covered by the pergola with a screen topper offering a shady spot to sit and sip a drink, read a book, or simply enjoy the tinkling of the wind chimes or the soothing sound of the water fountain. Up the hill (at the edge of the woods) is a two-person gazebo. The B&B has three guest rooms (Bear & Moose on lower level and Pinecone on main level). We stayed in the Moose Room. It is spacious and the bed was comfortable. Extra pillows and blankets are in the closet. The main floor living/dining room is bright and airy. Everything is clean and well-maintained. From the moment we entered the front door, our hosts (Dietmar and Marion) made us feel welcome. They are very friendly and bend over backward to ensure their guests are happy but they don’t hover or intrude on your privacy. Breakfast is not a traditional American menu. This may or may not appeal to everyone. For instance, my husband was fine with it but I prefer my eggs and bacon. I was very impressed with this B&B and look forward to returning again.

After our great stay at Wind in the pines in spring 2013 with the Innkeepers Marion and Dietmar, we went back for the winter in February 2014. The "Innsitters" Maria and Adriano are just wonderful hosts, the food was delicious, everything perfectly clean! We went with them (and Spotty, such a sweet dog!) for a snowshoe tour, just straight off the B&B and we loved it so much! Can't wait for next time! We are looking forward to be back in 2015 and we will definitely bring our cross country skis ;-)

On a whim we stayed here and I was so nervous about staying there but I shouldn't have been. The sweet German couple who owned it were awesome! They tried to please us at every turn and their breakfasts were amazing and very European. We would stay here again no questions asked.

We stayed two nights in October. The building was designed as a B&B, which makes it work well. Bedroom was generous size; common room upstairs was also roomy. Very clean and neat, nice landscaping, lovely hosts. It is an easy 10 minute drive from downtown Traverse City, which suited us fine. Light on the amenities but not a big deal. Breakfast was fruit, a hot egg dish, and homemade bread--very good. Would definitely return.

The Wind in the Pines is a beautiful and well maintained BnB just outside Traverse City with the feel of nature inside and out. Cleanliness must be their watchword as the accommodations were spotless! Dietmar and Marion were the perfect hosts, very friendly and welcoming, but non intrusive. Our breakfast was wonderful and Marion took our dietary needs into consideration. Their dog (oh my, name escapes me!) but she was a beauty and so well behaved. She stayed on her side of the door and just looked at us with her soulful eyes. Marion said I could visit with her in their room, so I did. She loved the belly rub and attention. Just can't get that kind of interaction in a hotel!! It is what makes Bed and Breakfast's so enjoyable to me. Dietmar and Marion are doing a fantastic job!! Recommend the highest!

Room Tip: Any room at this BnB would be wonderful!

My husband and I have stayed here twice and love it. The owners are very hospitable and make amazing breakfasts. I've stayed at several B&Bs and this one is exceptional. Great place to stay if you're visiting Traverse City -- it's close to town, but away from the hustle and bustle. Always a relaxing, enjoyable stay.
