I thought the Terrace Inn was perfect but somehow they've improved it. Warm and helpful front desk service, a lovely room, great walks through Bay View, capped by a fabulous meal on the porch. Such a special place.
What a great evening we had! We can not wait to return again.The rooms are comfortable and we loved that we could see into rooms not in use. Every room is decorated differently. We loved the food! And eating on the terrace was very relaxing.
My husband and I spent two nights at the Terrace Inn on our anniversary trip and were very pleased with the clean, roomy accommodations and friendly staff not to mention the beauty of the Bay area. Dinner at the inn was outstanding!
My boyfriend and I stayed at The Terrace Inn for just one night after attending a local wedding. I begged him to extend our trip so we could stay longer! We were in the Stargazer suite, which was incredible. The beds were comfortable, the double shower solved an age old dispute of what temperature the water should be, and the stars enticed a late night conversation that made my heart swell. All of the staff were such a joy, and the hotel was breathtaking. I dropped several hints about hosting our wedding here in the future! The surrounding are is absolutely breathtaking and worth an early morning stroll. We will definitely be back as soon as possible!
We like to stay at a different Bed a Breakfasts across the state for our anniversary. This year it was Petoskey and I am pleased to say we chose The Terrace Inn. Our stay was impeccable. The room was more than adequate, Breakfast was exceptional. We were not able to dine in, which I hear is a highlight, due to a wedding. However the wedding made the stay even more fun. The Desk Manager Belinda was beyond expectation. Service was awesome. She knew it was our anniversary, because the bar was focused on the wedding, she went above and beyond to get us a bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary on the Terrace. Belinda, you are awesome! The Terrace Inn is a great stay and we will certainly return!
We celebrated my husband's birthday with friends at The Terrace Inn. Our rooms were clean, cool, and a great value during the peak summer season. Breakfast was very good both mornings. The scones were delicious! We enjoyed dining on the front porch and playing cards and enjoying cocktails on the Terrace. We always try to stay here at least once during the summer! Also love the location and the views!
My daughter and I had another amazing trip to the Terrace Inn to meet with staff regarding plans for my daughter's wedding in September. Mo and Chef Zak spoiled us with a selection of chicken dishes and appetizers so we could choose our favorites for the reception menu. All of it was amazing but we especially loved the chicken piccata and stuffed mushrooms. Can't wait to eat it again on the wedding day !!!!! Patty was so gracious and spent time showing us all of the options for using the beautiful antiques available at the inn for the reception. She gave us so many great ideas and made it very fun. You can tell that she is truly excited for us and loves her job. I can't forget to thank Belinda for arranging all of this for us....you are a delight to work with. Thanks again Terrace Inn for another amazing experience. Marty and Cara
This was our third visit and it was wonderful. Quaint inn,great location in Bay View,excelllent food. Try the crab cakes and planked whitefish. Buffet breakfast had substantial choices. Belinda,Casey, and Patty provide personal outstanding service.
A hidden gem tucked away from the madding crowd. Quiet, exclusive, with a quality of exceptional service reserved for a 5 star resort. An excellent experience in fine dining, matched by surroundings of class and comfort. Memories made, memories kept.
This was our third stay and we love Terrace Inn and 1911 Restaurant. Great description of rooms online and very helpful front desk-Belinda,Casey, and owners. Newly renovated rooms-very clean. Great location in Bay View. Wonderful crab cakes+planked whitefish on the terrace for dinner. Very good buffet breakfast
We have stayed at the Terrace Inn many time s and always return. It's a lovely Victorian quaint place! Rooms are very cute and comfortable....perfect to come back to and relax after a busy day enjoying Petoskey and all that the surrounding area has to offer. We love this place!
My friends and I enjoyed a two night stay. Thank goodness our rooms had air conditioners as it was exceedingly hot. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and included a variety of hot and cold items. The drink options sitting in the lobby were a thoughtful idea. We would not hesitate to return here.
This is second time my husband and I have stayed here. The first time we were on top floor but as there is no elevator we chose the second floor this time. We don't recommend the second floor. We could hear every step above us (& much more unfortunately). And we could hear the neighbor snoring. We were thankful for the loud a/c unit kicking on and off. The rooms are charming and very clean. The bed was very comfortable even after 3 nights. Owners and staff are helpful and pleasant. Great breakfast provided.
The Terrace Inn is a very quaint and lovely place. The rooms are beautiful....not your usual contemporary hotel room. The staff is extremely friendly, rooms very clean, continental breakfast is delicious! There is also dining available which although I haven't tried I am sure it is as good as breakfast....and there is a bar too! It is located within the BayView area of old Victorian homes.....just a great place any way you look at it.
The Terrace Inn was a little gem of a place. It was so convenient to the Hall venue. I would recommend this place, tucked away in a beautiful area. The room was lovely, just missing soap in the bathroom! It was just an oversight of the cleaning person. No problem. I would definitely stay there again.
This was our 1st visit to the Terrace Inn and had a great time. Patty, Mo, Belinda, Chris and all the staff were great. We will visit there again. Expect accommodation's built in 1910 and you'll enjoy it and the surrounding neighborhood.
Second time staying here and was great just like my first stay. The breakfast was my favorite part. The staff is friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that having an adjoined room made it feel like I was sharing a room with my neighbor. I could here everything they said as if they were in our room. But that is to be expected in an old inn where the walls aren't as thick as they are in hotels these days. I would definitely still go back though! Beautiful views!
Superb location nestled in an historic neighborhood that oozes charm. The Inn was old fashioned but didn't feel "grandmotherly" old. Courteous staff (and present but not hovering owners) did everything possible to help us feel right at home.We look forward to future stays at the Inn and strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys something out of the ordinary..
Brought my girlfriend up to the Terrace Inn and 1911 Restaurant for a nice weekend getaway "up north" away from Grand Rapids. We were thoroughly pleased the moment we walked in to the building, enjoyed the charm of it all, and namely the rustic / elegant feel of it all. Actually proposed over the weekend, so this place will always hold a special place in our hearts!
After agreeing to stay at the Terrace Inn over a chilly spring break, I was happily surprised by the unique accommodations. Each room has its own antique design. It felt like I stepped back in time. The rooms were spotless too. I had no qualms about walking around barefoot. One small issue was that the bathroom was small, but the place was built in 1911 so the smaller rooms will have smaller bathrooms. The staff was amazing and went out of their way to make us comfortable. As I was sitting near the fireplace, one staff member noticed and started a fire for me. Talk about great ambience! The breakfast was not the shoddy continental type you'd find at a chain hotel. Everything was homemade and delicious! The Terrace Inn is also very close to shopping in downtown Petoskey, plus the area is gorgeous between Lake Michigan and the large summer homes that cover the landscape. I cannot say enough how wonderful the staff was and how beautiful the Terrace Inn really is. STAY HERE! You won't regret it.
