This facility is about one mile from town. Be prepared for a little stroll thru the neighborhood should you want to go into town.

The desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was pleasant and clean, although the walls are very thin (could clearly hear our neighbor sneeze or flush). It is an old, comfortable inn and we would stay there again.

A great piece of history. They did a great job of emphasizing the historical, keeping guest rooms as close to original as possible while still upgrading to private bath and shower in each room. We only had breakfast in the dining room and food was excellent as was the service.

It is a cute B&B and is very clean. We had a problem with toilet running constantly and was very loud with banging pipes, mentioned it the first day right after we checked in and we were pretty much blown off. The dining room was closed to us both nights since they had events going on. I would think they might have mentioned that little tidbit when we booked since we had to drive to town for meals. However we were allowed to enjoy the morning breakfast buffet that was complementary and it was excellent. Finally, all rooms don't have air conditioning so if going in the heat of summer make sure you ask because ours didn't and couldn't open the windows since no screens. All in all it is in a perfect location and the surroundings are beautiful and it is adorably decorated.

Nice place to enjoy a romantic getaway and spend some good quality time together. The atmosphere is laid back and the staff is very friendly

We stayed on a Thursday and Friday night during the off-season. We were warmly greeted by Ron even though we arrived a day earlier than expected. (My bad) Breakfast was prompt and delicious. The planked Whitefish was everything people said it was. We came with high expectations based upon previous reviews and were not disappointed. When we lived in PA we went to a B and B in Cape May, NJ every year. We were hoping to find a B and B in MI that was comparable. We found one that was more than we hoped for. Bay View is reminiscent of Chautauqua, which I visited often when I lived on Lake Chautauqua and downtown Petoskey is charming with excellent restaurants. I recommend the Terrace Inn and 1911 Restaurant without reservation.

Me and my boyfriend enjoyed. Romantic Valentine's getaway here. The staff went above and beyond in making sure our stay was personal and only the best! I was really happy to see such a close knit and caring staff. The room worked out great and the town was just close enough to the B&B's. The Terrace Inn will receive nothing but positive feed back from me.

We stayed at the Terrace Inn on the 2 coldest days of the year. Our room was very cozy and our hearts were warmed by our gracious hosts Patty and Moe Rave, who were very attentive and accommodating making sure that we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. They also suggested things to do and see. We had a great time and plan to visit again soon. Gordie Sudz

We love the Terrace Inn. My wife and I honeymooned there 10 years ago, and just enjoyed our 10 year anniversary with them as well. Mo and Patty were wonderful hosts, and the menu in the 1911 room is to die for! Highly recommended place to stay.

2 night stay. Have stayed there before and always pleased. Such a going back in time and the hotel has such a character to it. It is romantic and quaint..yet has some of the modern comforts such as tv. The hotel is located inside of a community that is closed in the late Fall & Winter so it is quiet and you feel relaxed.

The Terrace Inn is a lovely Inn with an outstanding staff! I usually stay for a week every summer...and have been doing this for years now. The staff this past summer was outstanding...the best ever...very professional! The rooms at the Inn are beautifully decorated with antiques and the continental breakfast is wonderful! I ate most of my meals at the Inn...and I especially like the planked whitefish and the perch! Another favorite is the pizza and salad! There is lots to do in Petoskey...you will not be disappointed if you stay at the Terrace Inn! The Innkeepers Patty & Mo are very friendly and helpful!

We loved our stay at the Terrace Inn. The room was very cozy and comfortable. The lobby provided a nice space to just relax and have a cup of coffee after shopping downtown Petoskey. Although we had dinner reservations elsewhere, the breakfast was perfect. There was an egg casserole, a potato casserole, bacon, waffles, fruit, yogurt and bagels. There was always a staff person visible and ready to help if needed. In all, it was a great stay and we will return.

We stayed 4 nights and loved our stay - especially enjoying breakfast and dinner on their beautiful Terrace. Everyone was friendly & went out of there way to make our stay special.

Every year I look forward to staying at The Terrace Inn in beautiful Bay View! The welcoming atmosphere, great food, majestic outdoor terrace for dining among the tall trees, the quiet morning walks and sunsets on the Bay are what keep me coming back. I'm honored to be a yearly Artist in Residence at The Terrace Inn where music and art are celebrated during the summer months, and an artist is showcased each week!

I stay here only to visit relatives in area. This will be my 4th visit within 7 years. Their sister hotel is much nicer but pricer. This place is old but kept up nicely and in a residential neighborhood. Beware, there is no elevator to get to 2nd or 3rd floor. Continental breakfasts are too sweet wish they could offer oatmeal something less sugar. I hear their dinners and pizzas are good. If you want quiet, this is it. Rooms are affordable and you have a big choice if booking early.

We came back for an impromptu wedding anniversary and we're glad we did. We'll be back!
5 en enero 01, 2013
The staff was outstanding in helping us with the wedding. We couldn't have wished for a better venue, and Mo and his team did everything possible to assure the wedding was perfect - and it was. The accommodations were great, we enjoyed the breakfast buffets in the mornings - food was very good. We would highly recommend for a special event or just a nice quiet get-away.

This is the third time we have been able to spend time at the Terrace Inn. The hosts and staff are exceptionally friendly and eager to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The food is exceptional and my husband and I can't wait until our next visit, hopefully in the Spring. This is a great place and a great value.

This was my second stay at the lovely Terrace Inn. Each time I found the experience enjoyable. Very clean and charmingly decorated accommodations in a beautiful setting. The owners and staff are always very personable. I look forward to returning!

This is a very nice B & B to stay if you would like to get in the waters closely. Very nice and historical. Its not too expensive and yet met our expectations. We definitely enjoyed our stay at this place plus the fact that the whole area in this neighborhood is safe and beautiful. The place also have a nice accommodation, wi-fi connection, and friendly staff to answer the questions of first time tourists in this area like us.

Breakfast left a little to be desired, we had more of a continental breakfast rather than a traditional B&B breakfast. This is in a very beautiful location. Papa Tony's is an excellent place for pizza!

We stayed only one night at the Terrace Inn and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was comfortable - nice to have air conditioning in record breaking heat. Staff was helpful and hospitable. Food was great. Wonderful setting and atmosphere. We would certainly return.

This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast and it was wonderful. Terrace Inn is located in a nice part of town very quiet and picturesque. You can easily walk to the bike path and walk along the lake shore to view the beautiful sunsets of Petoskey. The rooms were clean comfy and felt very much like staying in someones home. The breakfast was only average and the dinner prices were quite pricey but the atmosphere was very nice and we look forward to visiting again.

Our stay at the Terrace Inn in Petosky proved to be one of the best weekends we have had away from home. The room was small, but very clean and the bed was comfortable. We had a delicious buffet breakfast each morning, and also ate dinner in the dining room one evening. That exceeded our expectations. Everyone was gracious and very helpful. The area is pristeen with gorgeous homes and breathtaking scenery. We will definately return to Petosky and the Terrace Inn whenever we come back to Northern MI.

We've stayed at the Terrace Inn twice and are booked for our third visit later this year. This was the first B&B we'd ever visited and needless to say we became hooked. The location, near to the bay, is outstanding, and the neighborhood is attractive (not to mention quiet, during off-season!). The breakfasts and dinners are great and Mo is a very pleasant host.
2,6 en febrero 07, 2011
We stay at Bed & Breakfasts as much as possible whenever travelling or just for getaway weekends at least twice a year. This one was average at best. The staff was friendly but very scattered and unorganized. The Inn was lovely but had a hard time regulating the temp in our room so was always too hot or too cold. Food was ok but breakfast was what you would get at any hotel, not what we were looking for and had to take care of our own dishes and clear our table. We take a getaway to get away from work and be pampered. Just not worth the cost. We have stayed at much better places.

We stayed only one night, and felt very fortunate to get a room at the Terrace Inn. The room wasn't quite ready for us when we got there, but the housekeeping staff offered us a cold drink, and started the air-conditioner going so that the room was well-cooled when we entered. The decor was absolutely charming, the soap and shampoo top-notch, and the breakfast in the morning was fresh and welcome. The bed was comfortable, and the entire Inn was welcoming. We sat on the porch in the morning, and drank our coffee, and enjoyed conversation with other visitors. This was a truly special experience, and the staff really went out of their way to be accommodating.

Going to Bay View Terrace Inn is always something we look forward to. It's like stepping back into an era where everybody knows and trusts each other, are friendly, and life is just so pleasant. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms wonderfully diverse in their charming decor, and the food is exceptional at a reasonable price. There are not enough words to describe the Bay View and the Terrace Inn - It's something you have to experience for yourself.

My sister and I visited the Bayview Terrace Inn back in February for the dog sledding adventure package. We had a FANTASTIC time, and created beautiful memories! This was our very first time at a Bed and breakfast and dogsledding so we were definately intimidated! When we arrived we quickly relaxed taking in the homelike feel of the Inn and the employees were very friendly! Patty and Mo were adorable hosts and have created a great place to visit! While my sister checked us in I tried out the lobby chairs which were by far one of the most comfortable chairs I have EVER sat in! This again surprised me beacause they didn't look it, which totally proves that looks can be deceiving! Once we arrived in our room it was like a standard hotel room and was very charming! It was pink pink pink! just how we wanted it! :) Breakfast was your standard continental and was great! I also liked the special touches within this INN such as complimentary hot chocolate served at night in the main lobby. The dining area also had candles and roses on the tables for evening dining. All of these little touches are important and created a lovely atmosphere to be in! Dinner at the Inn which came with our package was very delicious! If I has anything negative to say about this Inn it would definately be the parking which was horrible, because there is no actual parking lot. You have to park on the sides of the road and walk your stuff in! I recommend packing light! All in all i loved my stay here and can't thank the Innkeepers enough along with the entire dogsledding adventure team for allowing me to fullfill a dream of mine and for giving me a great place to stay in as well! I recommend this place to anyone looking to try dogsledding and would like to have a relaxing weekend! what a great experience! THANK YOU! Glorianna Cece & Jessica Cece

A spur of the moment trip and a delightful stay at the Terrace Inn. We will most definately return again - food was wonderful, the best planked whitefish we have ever had. Staff delightful, gracious - all you could ask for. A step back in time and what a welcome relief! One more note-very reasonably priced and well worth it.

My husband and I stayed a night at the Terrace Inn in December. This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast and we cannot wait to do it again! It was wonderful. The inn is darling and quite comfortable. The service is marvelous. We enjoyed the breakfast, too. It was a beautiful snowy winter's day which made it easy to spot a bright red cardinal outside the window. We also enjoyed a peaceful winter's hike throughout the grounds and beyond. I should think a summer's evening on the huge porch would also be quite enjoyable.

My wife and I have just spent one of the most relaxing and enjoyable weekends in our memory. Thanks to Mo and Patty and the outstanding services they provided we feel human again. From checking in, to the cleanliness of the room; from the incredibly delicious breakfast to the gormet wonders of the dinner kitchen, we were continually amazed at the highest quality being offered. Mo and Patty sweetened the package by throwing in a horse drawn sleigh ride through the historic Bayview neighborhood. The amenities and the renovations took us back to an era of refined granduer and elegance; to a time when sitting in the grand lobby, near the fireplace playing back gammon or parcheesi, and visiting with other guests was the accepted norm. Kudos to Mo and Patty for their patience in achieving their dream, and for their impeccable graciousness. Denny and Barb

We would highly recommend this quaint Bed and Breakfast. It is the perfect opportunity for a romantic getaway with its whirlpool suites and cozy fireplace in the room. The decor, music, and ambience take you back in time, you almost expect to find elegantly dressed ladies and dapper gentlemen around every corner. The friendliness of the staff and the cozy atmosphere make you feel so at home. The food was delicious and the rooms are decorated to perfection. If you're looking for a place to totally unwind and loose yourself in romance for a weekend, this is the place you should come to!!

We have stayed at The Terrace Inn many times, and absolutely love it. The updated rooms are lovely- try one of their jacuzzi suites for relaxing after skiing or bicycling. Their smaller twin rooms are great if you have kids along, and you can book an adjacent queen room for the adults. Service here is always helpful and responsive. The town is quiet & filled with charming cottages. Private beach in summer; near great skiing (downhill & cross-country) in winter.

I have stayed at the Terrace Inn many times with my family and have enjoyed Thanksgiving weekend there several times. And again it met my expectations which are high! The inkeepers were wonderful and so was the staff. They made sure you were comfortable. A great dinner and a reception on Friday evening with live music. I recommend you take your shopping list for Christmas and spend next Thanksgiving at the Inn. Petoskey is a great little town for shopping with some of the big store, but best of all little shops, boutiques and galleries.

We had such a relaxing stay! Everyone is so friendly at the Bay view Terrace Inn and made our children feel welcome. We can't wait to go back up for Skiing, then warm up by the fireplace. Thanks Terrace Inn!

My sister and I recently stayed here on a whim and it was an awesome spur of the moment decision! We stayed off season for the area and fell in love with it all. The attention to details in the rooms was very pleasing! The owners and staff were helpful and very friendly! We took off on a wee tour of our own of the place upon rising in the morning and got to see most of the rooms... They were all very delightful and brought back fond memories of our grandmother. My sister liked it so much that she is trying to convince her oldest daughter to have her wedding there. I hope that happens because I would love to fly up and stay there again!

This was our second year to stay at Terrace Inn after the first I made it our goal to make it an annual event and to stay in a different room every time. It is a beautiful, romantic, peaceful and friendly Inn. We highly recommend it.

We very much enjoy the Terrace Inn. Have been there at least 4 times over the years. We enjoy just walking through the historic neighborhood and then of course shopping in Petoskey. It is very calm and relaxing and we also enjoy eating there. Judi & Rol

The Terrace Inn is within walking distance of many things so the location is great. Our room was clean (somebody's candy wrapper was in the closet?), but there was an inch of open space between the air conditioner and the wall (we placed a towel in the hole to keep out the mosquitos) - the room was a little run down (kleenex stuffed in windows/screens to keep out the mosquitos - some windows wouldn't open). Very little traffic noise, but the walls are very thin (we could hear the guitar in the next room like it was in the same room but it was during the early afternoon so it was fine). Tried to connect to wireless and failed - front desk was having as much trouble as we had. The food was good and the staff was friendly and helpful. If you're looking for something laid back and off the beaten track (and you have no need to contact work when away), it is a good place to stay. The outside seating (our favorite thing about our stay) is a wonderful setting for meals.

This was our first time at the Terrace Inn and would definitely stay again. Very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the whole feel of the place. Have stayed before at the Grand Hotel on Macinac Island and this felt like a mini Grand Hotel with the decorations and the art on display.

We experienced our first stay at the Terrace Inn and it was a impressive experience! The Inn is absolutely beautiful and the staff is very graceous and accomodating. The food in the restaurant was absolutely top-rated, not to mention the elegant, but very comfortable atmosphere. Our room was very quaint and charming and very comfortable. The whole historical area is a must-see with just a short walk to Lake Michigan where there is so much to do! Thanks Patty & Mo! Your Chocolate Iowa Friends

A great place to experience this lovely, unusual, victorian, summer community in the heart of Petoskey. The Inn is clean, quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast and staff were delightful. Great value in an otherwise pricey area during peak season. Only drawback is that the Inn has no elevator. We enjoyed our visit thoroughly and plan to stay here again! Les and Chris Homan

Friendly, helpful staff! Planked whitefish dinner is a must! Staff was able to provide anything I asked for, including special orders in the dining room. Great value in a what can be expensive location. Shopping is Petoskey is wonderful too.

I stayed at the Terrace Inn just recently and the location is great! Just about a mile from downtown and the shops there are great! This place has so much character and you feel comfortable just lounging in the lobby by the fireplace with a good book, I know I did! Its calm and quiet and not too far from Boyne Highlands which is perfect because I always hate to stay at Resorts when i take a trip to ski. It always feels so BUSY, but I love to ski so I don't want to be too far away! Its so charming here and the innkeepers and staff will take time to talk to you and make you feel at home. I am definately coming back soon for my next ski trip!

The location is on a hillside in the midst of Victorian homes and is ideal for a scenic walk. The long veranda facing the bay is a relaxing place to sit and visit as is the lobby. I went with 2 woman friends and were pleased with the large bathroom with plenty of counter space. We also had a whirlpool tub. The cleanliness of the rooms was outstanding. I don't know if there is an elevator or rooms on the ground floor so check ahead of time if you can't do stairs. Patty, one of the innkeepers, was nice enough to take a photo of us and e-mail it as we forgot cameras. Jane
