Acerca de

Located in Traverse City's Old Town, we provide beautifully furnished rooms in a historic home built in 1900. We serve a generous, home cooked breakfast made with organic ingredients. We use local produce, breads, and eggs whenever possible. Enjoy your morning coffee from a local fair trade roastery in our urban gardens amid beautiful herbs and flowers. Our house is located a short 5 minute walk from fun and unique downtown Traverse City. Visit our renowned State theater, stroll the beach during sunset or enjoy local music, beer, wine, and dinner. We are happy to loan you a bike from our personal collection, including a tandem, to explore the historic neighborhoods of Traverse City. If you are in the mood for a drive, you can discover the beauty of the Old Mission Peninsula, Leelanau Peninsula, or the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes.

Great Place

4,2 en agosto 10, 2015

We stayed here for a weekend. Although we felt the room was small upon arrival, the charm of the overall atmosphere and generosity of the host quickly overrode our doubts. It was only a couple blocks from the city and the beach, you could not have a better breakfast to start out your day, and Franny was a wonderful person for ideas on where to go and what to do, and just a fun person to talk to. We also liked that we had our own bathroom. For the price, location, and experience it is the perfect place to spend time in Traverse City!

peaceful retreat

My daughters and I stayed at Oviatt House for 2 nites while on a girls retreat. We have stayed at many BnB's in the past and much prefer them over a hotel. Oviatt House is lovely. The breakfast was perfect, the rooms are just as pictured, beds comfortable. It is within walking distance to downtown. Lots of parking. We will definitely return!

Fran, the proprietor is fantastic. By far, the best breakfast I've ever been served at a B&B. She was also helpful in navigating the town.

My group and I have never stayed in a B&B before, but we would definitely stay at the Oviatt House again. Frannie's breakfast was amazing. She had great suggestions, and we always felt welcome.

Best B&B experience Ever

Thanks to Franny the owner we had a very enjoyable stay! The breakfast was fantastic & her hospitality was great. The location was only a 5 min walk to all the shops & restaurants.

The Best First Experience

We are so thankful our 1st B&B experience was at Oviatt and with Franny. It was the best experience we could have hoped for. We will be trying more B&B's because of her.

Conscious Comfort

5 en septiembre 27, 2013

Staying at the Oviatt House while visiting Traverse City was such a positive experience I felt compelled to write a review. The conscious traveller will feel right at home here. Fair trade coffee, and non GMO organic meals. The B&B is furnished with antiques from around the world and the beautifully landscaped property even has a small coy pond. Franny (the proprietress) is very knowledgable of the surrounding area and fun to talk to. Your stay at the Oviatt house will be memorable. Dan T.

A very pleasant stay

We stayed here during the wine festival in June 2013. The house featured very nice common areas and a garden area with seating, tables and a grill. We enjoys the food a great deal and were pleased with the wide selection. We are very likely to stay here again when in Travese City.

So Welcoming

Oviatt House was the perfect place to stay. Frannie is so welcoming and the beds and shower truly amazing. Wonderful breakfast too.
