Great location to explore Bellaire and Torch Lake! Stayed in Carmel Room, very reasonably priced. Very comfortable bed and bedding. Has room air conditioner and a small TV. Downside- shared bathroom, just down the hall-which was no problem at all for us, but may be for some. Jamie has a fridge stocked with cold water, delicious gluten free cookies, and dessert set out in the evening!

My husband and I spent our two year anniversary at Applesauce Inn. The location gives easy access to downtown Traverse City, Bellaire, Torch Lake and more! Jamie is a fantastic owner and hostess. Her breakfast menu was always delicious and she serves dessert each night. The room was very well kept and the bed super comfy. We will definitely be staying in more B&Bs after this experience!

The location is great close to lakes and not far from traverse city. Our room was decorated great with a warm feeling. The food was wonderful she used a lot of local ingredients and made an out of the world breakfast. You couldn't ask for a nicer more helpful hostess.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night - needed a getaway from everyday life and children :) . Applesauce Inn Bed and Breakfast is the best. Beautiful decorating..everytime I looked around I saw something I didnt notice before. Jamie is a wonderful host, very friendly and so helpful. We stayed in the absolutely beautiful Napa room. Comfy queen size bed, beautiful decorating, wonderful fireplace. We didnt want to leave. I would absolutely recommend staying here. Its beautiful and its only minutes away from downtown Bellaire. We went to Short's Brewery for dinner and drinks. Fun place - great atmosphere - wonderful food. We will stay here again - would love to come back in the spring or summer.

Applesauce Inn Bed & Breakfast is a Beautiful home in Bellair, Michigan. Many great resturants, shops and things to do. From the moment we arrived at the Inn, we felt welcome. The Inn Keeper Jamie, is an Amazing host, so Friendly and nothing is to much trouble. The Entire Inn was Exceptionally Clean, Inviting, Quiet, Romantic and Comfy-Cozy. My husband and I stayed in the beautifully decorated "Napa Room". We Absolutely Loved the Unbelivably Comfortable Queen Size Sleigh Bed, Private Bathroom with walk in Shower, Fireplace and Many other Lovely Details. The Breakfast's were Delicious and Filling! Thank You Jamie for all you did to make our stay special and memorable, very much appreciated! If you havent been a guest at the Applesauce Inn, You Should, You'll Love it.

Our stay at the Applesauce Inn B&B was an absolute delight! Beautifully appointed, yet cozy. We stayed in the Napa room, and especially enjoyed the bath robes and electric fire place. Jamie was a fantastic hostess-- the breakfasts were outrageous and we're still talking about her homemade caramels! Close to Bellaire (home of Short's Brewing), and a 30 mile drive to Traverse City. We'll definitely be back! -Bridget and Hadley

My husband and I recently stayed here for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful experience! We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast and both agree we will never stay at a hotel again! The innkeepers attention to details and the comfort of their guests goes above and beyond. Fresh and homemade breakfasts every morning and dessert every evening was delicious! Jamie even made homemade caramels! She is so talented and the home is just beautiful. There is so much to do in surrounding areas that it is a perfect location. We will definitely be back!

Jamie and Gary were wonderful hosts and made us feel at home right from the time of reservation. The bedrooms and bathrooms were everything we needed---comfortable beds, little fireplaces/heaters, and very well-decorated. Jamie's cooking was out of this world. Breakfasts were homemade and healthy, and her evening desserts were an added touch that you don't find at B&Bs. We're looking forward to visiting again and will definitely stay with them when we're up in the TC area again.

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast, and this far exceeded our expectations. The home was very clean, cozy, decorated with antiques and other interesting things. The owners are friendly and kind, and made sure we had everything we needed and more. Jamie makes breakfast every morning and dessert every evening and it was AMAZING! Everything was fresh, organic and home cooked. Our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable. There is not one thing that could have been better. I can't wait to be able to go back again. Thank you!

We had a fantastic stay! The Applesauce Inn has some of the best home cooked breakfast, and dessert that we have ever had. Especially, the chocolate orange baby cakes!!! We are definitely coming back for another stay. The house is in great condition, with many amenities that most places don't offer. The service provided by the innkeeper, was absolutely phenomenal. We could not have asked for a better place, or people to have stayed the weekend with!!Thanks for everything you did, Justin and Nicole.

We stayed for two nights in the Sonora Room, and the location, room, amenities, food, and owners were all top-notch. Nearby downtown Bellaire has some wonderful shops and galleries, and of course a stop at Short's Brewery is in order. The inn is located conveniently near sightseeing, wineries, casinos, and Traverse City. The inn itself is quite comfortable. I would stay again in the Sonora Room--on the first floor--because in addition to the private bath, it has convenient access to the parlor and porch. The porch is enormous and comfortable, with one side having a nice view of the vegetable garden and chickens. Definitely a relaxing place to stay! When you visit, be sure to check out the local goodies for sale in the dining room--honey, jams, and cherry products--as well as the gorgeous jewelry made by Jamie, one of the inn owners (repurposed vintage pieces--just lovely!)

This has to be by far one of the best places out there! Location is great, Inn Keeper is wonderful, food was better than I could have ever expected! Just a short distance from everything.

Incredible stay, like a visit to a very special relative, we felt right at home. Jamie and Gary know the area so well, their suggestions of what to see and do adds to the experience. The house is clean and well maintained, and all the little special things make it unique, like cupcakes and a bottle of wine on the table waiting for us in the evening, coffee and teas and assorted drinks always ready, and the breakfast is always second to none. Thank you Jamie and Gary for making our stay special.

Our friendly, down-to-earth Innkeepers were great from start to end of our 3-day stay.

I'll preface my review by noting that Applesauce was my first B&B experience. Simply put, the experience here has made me never want to stay anywhere else when I'm 'Up North' again! The house itself is immaculately maintained and is incredibly warm and inviting. Everything from the porch to the rooms was spotless. We stayed in the Carmel room, which had Paris inspired decor. The room was very cute and included a big comfy bed, little flat-screen TV, and electric fireplace (very nice touch). Our room shared a bathroom with the innkeepers but the bathroom was so clean and organized you would never realize you were sharing it! The outside porch was my favorite spot to sit and sip cherry tea (provided by the Innkeepers) and fresh coffee every morning. I loved just sitting and watching the hummingbirds feed at their three feeders placed around the porch. I really can't do justice to how amazing the home cooked breakfast and dessert was. Jamie really needs to open her own restaurant so more people can enjoy her incredible food! Both mornings breakfast included eggs from their chicken coop. Dessert was put out at 7pm each night and looked and tasted like dessert from a gourmet restaurant! This place really does have it all and the Innkeepers couldn't have been better hosts. The little touches are what really set this place apart. There was cold bottled water available at all hours, fresh baked cookies set out in the afternoon, and a chest of toiletries available if we had forgotten to bring something. Couple this with the fact that the Inn is located just minutes from Bellaire and Shorts Brewery (if you like beer, even a little, you HAVE to go here), minutes from great parks such as the Grass River Natural Area, and it's only about an hour from Traverse and the vineyards, and you have the perfect B&B experience. Seriously, if you're thinking about staying in a B&B in the Traverse area you really should stay here. You won't regret it...I promise!

Applesauce Inn is a wonderful place to relax and rejuvenate. The Inn is very warm and cozy with a country home feel. Located on M-88 between Bellaire and Mancelona there are many things to do and see within a reasonable driving distance from the Inn. The breakfasts that are served each morning are impeccable. You will not get any breakfast served at any hotel (including 5 star hotels) that are equal to the Applesauce Inn's breakfast. They are unique, creative and best of all very tasty.

My wife wanted to go to Traverse City, MI area for our anniversary. I found Applesauce Inn through the internet. We were delighted when we first arrived. The place was so cute, and Jamie, our hostess was waiting at the door to greet us. We were very pleased with the decor and the amenities of the place. The big walk-around porch was very inviting, and the many species of birds kept us amused for hours. Each morning's breakfast was different, fancy and yummy! The special dessert/treats we received each evening were also delicious and appreciated. We highly recommend Applesauce Inn, and will go there again and again.

We wanted to get away for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary, and found this wonderful B&B in the middle of northern Michigan's west coast (just about half way between Petoskey and Traverse City). We stayed in the Sonora room, which was really warm, inviting, and spacious! The bathroom had recently been remodeled, and was fantastic. Jamie is a gracious host, with great recommendations of places to go and things to do. She is also an excellent chef! She surprised us with amazing breakfasts (using their own farm fresh eggs), and absolutely out of this world desserts! We had an amazing time and definitely plan on staying here again.

As I shared with Jamie, this is definitely one of the best B&Bs ever! She was fantastic in the cleanliness of her home and the breakfasts were fantastic! She was very helpful with her accurate weather predictions for the Day Trips we took in the 3 full days there. Her home was cozy and just right for us 2 family couples meeting there in Bellaire to see the beauty of Northern Michigan. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Gary, too, for a really nice visit with both Innkeepers one evening. We were just there from Oct. 1 until Oct. 5, 2012, so everything is still fresh in our minds. We were most fortunate to see the beauty of the leaves changing color. The sights were spectacular! Jamie was very responsive to our every need.. She was indeed the "hostest with the mostest"!!! We highly recommend this B & B for a great value and restful stay! 5 Stars!!!

I wrote in the guest book that the bed and breakfast was a hard to find in the dark, when its lights were off, and that the TV in my room was tiny. This was perfect.

A lovely room (super comfy bed), divine breakfast and "snacks" (home-made baked desserts you could find in the finest bakeries), and generous & friendly innkeepers all contributed to a truly memorable stay at the Applesauce Inn. Bellaire is smack-dab in the middle of a bounty of beautiful "Up North" experiences. The inn is a short drive to many of the wonders of Michigan such as Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City (Awesome Wineries), Petoskey (awesome shopping and restaurants), Bellaire (Short's Brewery), Ski resorts, and much much more. I highly recommend a stay at the Inn. It beats a hotel (even the fancy ones in TC and Petoskey) any day.

The house was open and welcoming, the room we stayed in was spacious yet cozy and the food was phenomenal! Jamie was such an incredible host and went above and beyond to make us feel relaxed and at home. The desserts at night were amazing and we loved that she utilized local ingredients in every dish she served. The huge wrap-around porch was furnished with incredibly comfortable chairs and made sipping coffee in the morning and watching the chickens graze something exciting to get up early for. She was incredibly knowledgeable of the area and had several suggestions of places to go and things to do. A beautiful bed and breakfast and outstanding hosts will definitely bring us back to this country setting!

My wife and I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Applesauce in for our 30th anniversary. While we have stayed at many B&B throughout the years the Applesauce was by far the most wonderful of all. This was not some huge inn, but a wonderfully historic, well maintained and decorated home, the epitome of what a B&B should be. Hosts Jamie and Gary were very friendly and welcoming; they treated you as if you were old and dear friends. The rooms were well appointed, with incredible attention to detail. The food was exceptional in every way, whether it was the overall presentation or the flavors. Many of the menu items were prepared using fresh produce and products from local vendors and well as their own garden. You certainly did not leave breakfast wanting more. A special treat was the evening dessert and wine pairing, a welcome addition at the close of each day. I strongly encourage everyone to stay at the Applesauce Inn, you will not be disappointed.

We wrecently stayed w/ Jamie and Gary for our 31st anniversary. we had never experienced the B & B scene and were thrilled w/ our visit. although Jamie & Gary have only recently become the innkeepers, you would never know this. The inn is a beautiful old farm house that has been renovated and decorated extremely well. The food was fantastic and they made you feel as if they had been doing this for manay years. The little town of Bellaire has a few very unique down home shops. If Jamie tells you to visit Short's Brewing, take her up on the suggestion. As she said "it's the bomb". Thank you both for the memories and the good old down home hospitailty. Ralph & Kathy

My husband and I stayed for three nights and would DEFINITELY recommend this B&B. Wendy warmly greeted us at the door and was willing to do anything to make sure our stay was restful. The house is immaculate and tastefully decorated. The living room is comfortably furnished and available for guests. You can choose a book to read while listening to whatever music you select or take a nap. When guests return from the day's adventures, they are greeted with a delectable, homemade dessert--a different one each night. It was fun returning from dinner after a day at the Dunes or the wineries on Mission Point Peninsula to find out what tasty dessert we would be treated to each night. Coffee, tea, cocoa, hot apple cider are always available. David is an outstanding culinary artist who is passionate about his craft--he serves many of his own creations, recipes which he willingly shares on the inn's website. The presentation is as delightful as the food is delicious! Steve and I have stayed at many B&Bs, which I believe qualifies us to provide a credible recommendation--If your travels take you to the Traverse City area, then make your trip a true getaway by choosing the Applesauce Inn B&B! :)

We recommend that if you are looking for a great B & B experience in Traverse City area look no futher. We spent 3 perfect days in the comfort of Applesauce Inn, Wendy with her bright and warming smile , always making sure our room was in perfect shape and coffee and tea to add comfort when you returned home at night. What can we possibly save about Dave ,you made our day brighter with your conversation, but your breakfasts were outstanding and the dessert you served every night was just icing on our getaway.It was hard to say goodbye to two people that you felt were family. So once again , go stay at the Applesauce Inn and enjoy the down to earth getaway experience, read a book , take in the night sun going down, make new friends. God Bless both of you , may we see you again. Steve and Cheryl

My wife Karla and I enjoyed a B&B in Door County for our first year of marriage. We were originally planning on returning there for our 5th but we both had co-workers raving about Traverse City. We changed our destination plans but still wanted a cozy B&B. When we were looking for a place to stay, most of the hotels or B&B's that were available were almost double that of The Apple Sauce Inn. And with the discount for three or more nights, it was a winner. When we arrived, Wendy greeted us with all the basic info of the area. There was plenty of additional pamphlets as well. After going out for a bit, it was nice to come back to a hearty serving of Banana Cake. This was the norm every evening. Wendy’s chocolate cake and Cherry/Apple pie were incredible. Lets not for get her better half! He made an unbelievable Apple Pancake and a luscious Stuffed French Toast with fresh local cherries. We spent our 3 nights in Daniels room. It had a warm pleasant vibe with nice décor. Every day we had fresh towels and a clean room to return to. And Wendy checked in with us to make sure everything was up to par as well to answer any questions we might have. By far, our experience was outstanding! We have already passed along our reference for Applesauce Inn to several of our friends that are looking for a quick getaway at a phenomenal value. Tom and Karla White

This was our first stay in a bed and Breakfast, and we were so impressed. Not only was our room immaculate and cozy, not only were the breakfasts outstanding and so well prepared and presented, not only were the yummy desserts waiting for us at the end of a long day of sightseeing, but Dave and Wendy are the REAL deal. Their genuine hospitality and warm and inviting nature made our first experience one by which all future B&B's will be judged. Little things (like printed routes of shortcuts into town, the daily newspaper, menus from local places to eat, and unwritten tips from Dave who has lived here his whole life) helped to make our stay in a town we'd never been before that much more stress-free on finding things to do. Also, this place is so well located, central to many destinations. Traverse City was 35 minutes away, and just far enough that we were glad to be back 'home' in our quiet and serene setting, away from the craziness of Cherry Festival. I really recommend that you check this place out. Dave and Wendy aren't your typical "Professionally Polite" Inkeepers who have a job to do and do it well. You will feel like a welcome guest in their home, and you will definitely be treated as such. "Genuine" is the best word I can think of to describe these two. We're definitely giving The Applesauce Inn a second look if we ever head that way again!

This was the first time my husband and I stayed at a B&B. We may never stay at a hotel again. Our room felt, smelled and looked clean. Breakfast and dessert were great. Wendy and David were not intrusive but were available and helpful when asked for information. I hope to visit them during the winter months also..

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Applesauce Inn in Bellaire Michigan. The home is a beautiful old Victorian farmhouse located on a quiet country road not far from downtown Bellaire. It was very well appointed and spotlessly clean. David and Wendy were great hosts. David is a wonderful cook whose evening dessert and yummy breakfast were much enjoyed. They even helped my husband out with a special 30th wedding anniversary surprise so that it would be ready when we sat down for breakfast . If the opportunity presents itself again we would absolutely stay at the Applesauce Inn again. Ken and Cathy Neal

From kind and thoughtful hosts to sweetly decorated and comfortable rooms, the Applesauce Inn is a picture perfect B&B. Incredible attention to detail was evident in all aspects of our stay: a basket of convenience items in case guests forget anything, a binder of local attractions with printouts of the day's weather and local movie showtimes, coffee cups with lids to take on the day's adventures. The very comfortable beds and terrific food (apple-pecan maple syrup!) need mentioning, too. We couldn't have been more charmed and delighted by our stay and by Wendy and David. Highly recommended.

This was our first vacation and we loved it. We just got home yesterday and I have already recommended it to my sister. It was very peaceful and relaxing. It was a very nice little country farm house, however it wasn't very far from the city, which was nice. I loved that they served desserts as well. We will be going there again. Hopefully this fall!

My wife and I loved our visit to Applesauce Inn! It's in a quiet location, our room was cozy with our own electric fireplace to provide a nice ambiance and some extra warmth to the cold February weather. And Wendy and David were great hosts. Our schedule was tough as I was doing some cross country ski races, but having let them know ahead of time we'd have an odd schedule they were very accommodating with any early breakfast that was a perfect pre-race meal. Evening dessert and some refreshments available throughout the day was a great touch! Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer to enjoy. For a quiet get away in a Victorian style setting with very gracious hosts, it was a great place! Hope we get to return again--really wish we'd had time to enjoy the full breakfast.

The entire inn was incredibly clean, the food was delicious, and Wendy and Dave were very kind and helpful without being intrusive. We stayed in the Richardson Room, the smallest room with the shared bathroom, and it did not feeling like we were sharing at all. It was always immaculately clean and available whenever we wanted to use it. Our stay at the Applesauce Inn was everything we wanted it to be: relaxing, quiet, laid back, and fun. I would recommend it to anyone.

The home is clean, rustic, and so cozy, you feel like you live there. The details are perfect, but not overwhelming. The breakfasts are beyond any expectations...some reviews say that they are overwhelming, but you don't have to eat everything put in front of you. Dave makes perfect breakfasts...I especially liked the asparagus eggs and the whole grain cranberry pancakes. The sausage was premium, and the all you can drink OJ was perfect after a night of too much local wine. We stayed in the Daniels room, which was so cozy, I slept like a baby. We loved the electric fireplace, and it served as a cozy nightlight. Wendy and Dan Keene have a guest shelf set up upstairs stocked with anything you could possibly need....razors, shampoo, hair dryers, games, videos, fans, etc. I liked that detail because my husband and I liked to watch a couple "old" movies on VHS. Besides that, you are very close to the other guests and get to make new friends and hear great traveling stories. (If you are not a people person, don't stay here.) Wendy and Dave have maps and local shortcut directions to all the hotspots of the area. They also have two wonderful dogs, but the guests do not see them or notice them, unless you want to (I chanced upon their cage one morning, out back) My favorite part of staying here? Meeting new people, feeling like I was right at home, sitting on the big front porch every morning and watching the hummingbirds and their antics, and the view and peacefullness of the country. I plan to retreat here again and again...but there was one thing.....where was the applesauce????/

Dave and Wendy are such warm, friendly innkeepers. They made us feel at home immediately. The special touches they have for guests are so appreciated - comfy mattresses, bath robes, cozy living room, wifi, and the best of all - desserts every night!!! What a great treat it was to return to the B&B each night to savor a special dessert. Breakfasts are awesome, just an example - stuffed French toast with cherry topping, sweet potatoes, pancakes with a delicious syrup concoction of Dave's with apples and peaches. The Applesauce Inn was truly a special treat for us and we plan to return soon. Jan and Dave

We enjoyed our stay at the Applesauce Inn B&B. Everything was wonderful. It was so nice to have coffee on the porch in the morning, and we enjoyed watching the Hummingbirds.

The Inn is close to places in Michigan that are fun to visit. We look forward to visiting again.

We found Applesauce Inn to be nearby friends who have a cottage on Torch Lake. It was a great place to stay. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch with a cup of coffee each morning waiting for the 9 am breakfast. Something different each morning all delicious. Rooms were quiet, clean and wireless. Dessert each evening was a wonderful surprise. My daughter and husband also enjoyed themselves. Wendy and Dave were friendly and accomodating. I would go back there again. Was a nice restful haven at the end of each day. Thanks

My wife and I stayed at Applesauce Inn for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. It's a very traditional bed and breakfast in an immaculate old farmhouse. Quite a breath of fresh air compared to some other bed and breakfasts we've stayed at, which feel more like hotels. Wendy and Dave have done a great job with the place, keeping it immaculate and cozy. My wife kept saying how it felt like we were staying at a relative's house, it was that welcoming. Of course, Wendy and Dave give you plenty of space and privacy (unlike some relatives!). Our favorite part was the wraparound porch. We spent most mornings and evening just taking in all the sights and sounds while sipping our coffee and tea. If you're a dog person (we are), Bella and Lucy are the sweetest dogs ever! We were missing our furbuddy back home, so getting to spend 5 min. with them was a nice experience. If you are not a dog person you probably won't even notice them. They are very quiet and well-behaved and will only come out if they are summoned. Breakfast both mornings was very good, I especially liked the Italian omelette. Oh, and the beds are SO comfy! Just a great place, we'll be back!

Great directions made the Inn easy to find. The Inn was neat, clean, very inviting as were the Innkeepers, Wendy and Dave. Although there were dogs in the household, they weren't allowed to roam and there wasn't a "doggie" smell. Breakfasts were really wonderful and plentiful. Asparagus fritata - yum!! The room was comfortable, very clean and the bathroom was spotless. However the room was a bit crowded. A smaller bureau would help and flipping the bed and daybed. I usually travel with my own pillow but forgot it this time. The Inn's pillows were hard so I had to improvise. Maybe some feather pillows to go along with the feather beds - or a variety of pillows in the room would be good. Overall, I would highly recommend this Inn.

We live in a summer resort town (Grand Haven, MI), but it's often difficult to just get away from "busy-ness", housework, etc. and enjoy early summer. Applesauce Inn in Bellaire gave us a chance to just do "nothing" such as sitting on the front porch with leisurely reading, going on nearby hiking trails at Grass River, doing some leisurely window shopping and taking it some nice microbrews. David and Wendy were lovely innkeepers, always personable but never intrusive. It was wonderful to be able to travel with our "son" - our Teddy Bear dog - and have him very welcome to share our room and our quiet time on the porch.
5 su giugno 14, 2009
We stayed at the Applesauce Inn for two nights while attending a family reunion on Torch Lake. We stayed in the room with the shared bath upstairs, and our 91-year-old Aunt stayed in the first-floor suite. Wendy and Dave are the perfect innkeepers, and their totally renovated farmhouse offers a cozy yet elegant respite from the real world. The rooms are clean, clean, clean, and the furnishings are tasteful, unique, and so nice to come "home" to after you've done whatever you've come to the area to do. Dave cooks a mean breakfast, and Wendy leaves a scrumptuous dessert out after dinner every night. And then there are the Boxer girls -- Lucy and Bella -- who charmed us from the second we saw them wag their whole bodies in happy greeting and anticipation of pats or other signs of affection. But don't worry if you're not a dog lover . . . you won't know they're there unless you ask Wendy or Dave to let them join you in the dining room after breakfast or dessert. In short . . . the Applesauce Inn is far more than a bed and breakfast, and we can't recommend it highly enough.

We had a wonderful stay at the Applesauce Inn this past Memorial Day weekend, and would recommend it 100 times over. Not only were the morning meals fantastic (Traverse City cherry cream cheese stuffed baked French toast with cherry syrup, 12 grain pancakes with apple walnut syrup, and Italian baked omelets), but even better were the hosts. Wendy and David were warm and accommodating, and were great with providing directions to all area tourist destinations, as well as to other out-of-the-way local establishments (we second their recommendation of Shorts Brewery Company 3 miles away in Bellaire, http://www.shortsbrewing.com/). Thanks again, Wendy and David. We'll see you again soon!

We found the Applesauce Inn by chance, online, and could not have been happier. Wendy and David are truly gracious and accommodating, our room was cozy and comfortable, and the food delicious. Every small need is tended to, whether it be hot beverages at off hours, or wine glasses and bathrobes in the room. Their dogs are so playful, cute, and well-behaved. We NEVER heard them, and they only came out for attention when we we requested. Highly recommended, and we would (and will) stay there again without hesitation.

A thoroughly pleasant stay. Bellaire is about a 1/2 hour from Traverse City, and the Applesauce inn is near enough to drive to the beach, but far enough to be out of sight of the plastic signs and cheesy beachfront hotels. A nature preserve is only a few minutes drive away, with boardwalk bridges over streams, and setting areas in the forest. The breakfast was quite good and the portions were quite ample.

My husband and I treated ourselves to a mid-week ski get-away in late January, 2009. We selected The Applesauce Inn initially because of the value of the room rate. However, the comfort of the parlor, dining room and of couse, bedroom and bathroom, exceeded our expectations. The "icing on the cake" was the exceptional hospitality shown to us by Wendy and Dave (and Lucy & Bella). We were very comfortable; the B&B was very clean, comfy and warm. Breakfast was better than the Ritz Carlton and dessert was better than that. You will love staying here; we'll be back! Sterling & Kim, January, 2009

Everything came together perfectly in this B&B. Wendy and David were great hosts who were very helpful and accomodating, without being obtrusive. We stayed in the Grantz room which had a lot of atmosphere and was really one of a kind. Every morning before the delicious breakfast a la David, we would open the curtains to count the deer in the meadow across the yard. We would sit in our living room and drink great coffee while reading the daily paper and drooling over the smells from the kitchen. The resident dogs, Lucy and Bella, would never have been heard or seen if we hadn't asked to meet them. In fact, both were trained well enough that they would not cross the threshold into the guests area unless invited by Wendy. In the evening, after returning from our snow laden adventures, I would soak in a hot bath, drink some chamomile tea, and we would read. The only sounds to be heard was the quiet Grand Father clock in the livingroom that would let you know the hour if you listened hard enough. Around 8 pm or so, we would open our door and peak out at the dining room table to see if dessert had been served. Most often it had and we would sit at the table, drinking our tea and enjoying the treat before bed. I cannot wait to visit this little place again. It was worth way more than what we paid.

Stayed a Friday and Saturday with husband and daughter. Would not even have known there were dogs on the premise except we saw them on the website and asked to meet/play with them. Dogs were wonderfully mannered – great kids who behaved well (testament to Dave and Wendy’s parenting and attention). Never heard a bark/whine or saw signs a dog was in residence. Wendy keeps the house meticulous. Lucy and Belle (two boxers) made the visit more fun and memorable. Enjoyed the various teas/hot chocolate/cold beverages always available. Nice towels and appreciated the robes. Good location and nice drive into town. Quiet night’s sleep. Bed was not as comfortable as I would have liked but we are tough to please when it comes to mattresses.

My family and I recently returned from a trip to Traverse City, Michigan to go shopping and sight seeing and heard about this Bed and Breakfast through this particular website. We have stayed at several B&B's before..... but nothing like this one! The service was amazing and the inn keepers were very friendly. The rooms were extremely clean and were equipped with all the amenities of home. Each morning, breakfast was served at 9:00 am and dessert was on the table and ready to eat after a day of sight seeing. Each day, Wendy would clean your room and lay out fresh towels. The Applesauce Inn B&B was about 35 minutes outside Traverse City and was minutes away from a small town called Alden. Close by, there was a nice beach and a great restaurant called the Dockside. All in all my family and I thought this bed and breakfast was magnificant, and we would go back in a heartbeat!

Had a brief but very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Applesauce Inn B& B July 2008. Dave and Wendy were very gracious and thoughtful hosts as they shared their home with us. It was diffcult finding a B & B that would accept a "1 night only "stay (especially on a Friday night) but this was not a problem at the Applesauce Inn . The price was very reasonable, the food delicious (added bonus of a homade dessert in the evening) and they had many thoughtful touches (area weather forecast for the week,events in the local area, soft drinks in the refridgerator) The setting is very quiet and peaceful but close to Traverse City, Torch Lake, Petosky.

This is our second stay at Applesauce Inn and stay two was better than ever. Bellaire is a great location, close to everything cool in the Northwest Part of MI Mitten. Very close to Torch Lake, and a hop and a skip to Traverse City, Petosky, Charlevoix, Mackinaw Bridge and the Island, and points North. But, you have the advantage of a more restful rural setting, complete with songbirds at the feeders, and deer and wild turkeys in the area. Dave and Wendy have taken a lovely Victorian type home and turned it into a visual feast. From the large wrap-around porch, to the antiques throughout, the different decor for each room, it's just what you want and more. And the locals are very happy with them as well. My aunt, who has lived in the area for over thirty years was thrilled when she heard it was to be made into a B&B. Breakfast at nine is always home-made, hot, and tasty. My husband and I have special dietary needs which they remembered from the first visit. I must say I've enjoyed the large family dining room table. Large and oval, plenty of room for yourself and the other guests for conversation. Oh, and at 8:00 p.m., there's a killer evening treat waiting at the table. Dave and Wendy have two assistant innkeepers, boxers Bella and Lucy. They are not allowed in the guest areas, but love it when pet-happy guests want to say Hi and give them some attention. All and all a lovely Inn, with great people, and beautiful surroundings. We love the Torch Lake area and will always stay at Applesauce when we return.

We would not have been able to enjoy the getaway without him. Dave is a self taught gormet cook and breakfast was out of this world. The evening desserts were a perfect end to each day we spent there. We recommend this gem to anyone and we will return gladly.

Applesauce Inn was a great find; close to our favorite Ski Resorts and lots of good restaurants. Wendy and David were friendly and attentive, but didn't suffocate us. Bella and Lucy gave us our fix of doggie kisses and we could not have been happier or more comfortable!

We have stayed at the Applesauce Inn several times over the past few years. Wendy and David are wonderful inkeepers who pay attention to every little detail to make our stay just perfect. The Inn has a very safe, comfortable atmosphere and the feather beds are awesome!!

Wendy and David were so nice to us! This was our first getaway as a couple and it was truly memorable. The room was romantic, the food was excellent, the fellow guests were wonderful, their route directions and recommendations were spot on, the boxers were so adorable...basically we would gladly revisit Wendy and David next time we are looking to stay in Northern Michigan.

Hosts were very friendly, and B&B was charming and well maintained. B&B is close to all points of interest in the area and owners provided a very nice binder of information. Breakfasts were wonderful and evening desserts were much appreciated.

This was our first B&B experience, and it was even better than anticipated. Wendy & David were friendly and helpful, and Bella and Lucy were so sweet! Breakfast and dessert were great, 24 hour beverages were a plus and location was convenient to our itinerary. As a bonus, the other guests were very nice, and we had fun lingering at the table with them!
