We went intending to stay one night, but changed our travel plans and stayed a second. One of the more relaxing, comfortable Bed & Breakfast stays we've had for some time. The space was comfortable. The Host and Hostess were relaxed and helpful. The environment was farm-like, with plenty of places to walk.

My wife and I were looking for a getaway for the weekend and we found The Listening Inn. What an amazing stay! The Inn is beautiful and well cared for. The grounds were fun and expansive to tour. Les and Carol took care of our every need and gave us some great suggestions for site seeing around the area. I'd highly recommend The Listening Inn to anyone looking to relax!

The night I spent at the Listening Inn was as educational as it was comfortable. Owners Carol and Leslie have developed a beautiful Northern Michigan respite that was accentuated by the experiences they shared about their lifetime living in the area. The fresh tasting, home cooked breakfast was substantial and very good! Can't wait to find an excuse to visit again!

My fiancé and I were looking for a place to get away for a weekend and found a livingsocial deal for the Listening Inn. The location of the Inn is gorgeous, the wooded areas are nice and peaceful and our three hour canoe trip down a nearby river was exactly what we wanted to de-stress. We saw a lot of wildlife and Les and Carol shared some great stories with us about the property. My only complaint for the trip was our breakfasts. We have stayed at many bnb's and were used to large breakfasts that require us to crawl away from the table when we're done. These breakfasts were much smaller than expected and not as good as ones we've had in the past. We may have received less due to the livingsocial deal, I'm not sure. Overall a wonderful place to stay and phenomenal for the price!

The listening Inn is my all-time favorite place to stay. I travelled for my job for many years and have stayed in many wonderful places - NONE compared to The Listening Inn! The old-world feel you get when you see the owners (Les and Carol) making their own map,le syrup from the trees on the property and roasting a chicken they grew in the yard is beyond compare. The rooms are beautiful as well - I sat in my jacuzzi tub on the second floor looking out over the gorgeous woods watching a bear feed at the feeder they have set up in the yard. Breakfast is homemade from scratch using fresh eggs (and I mean- FRESH! they collect them every morning from the chicken coop), home baked breads with homemade jams, all organic, all natural and most important - DELICIOUS! If you want a place to stay for a night - you can go anywhere! If you desire an experience you and your family will remember forever - stay at The Listening Inn.
