The foot bridge is the first step to the special charm of Bridgewalk. The bridge leads you across a meandering brook to the front porch where you may enjoy the rockers or porch swing in the shade of wonderful old maple trees. Built in 1895 by James Cameron, an early settler and lumber baron, the Inn reflects the gracious appointments of a more elegant era: large airy windows, pocket doors, high ceilings. The downstairs common area is a place to relax, read in front of the fireplace, play the baby grand piano, listen to music, watch TV or a movie.

A friend and I stayed at this bed and breakfast for a summer getaway and had a great time! Very personable people make you feel very welcome and at home; Tom & Janet are always giving advise on where to get the best meal in town, or perfect spot on the lake. And Janet's breakfasts are exquisite! Definately worth the value and will be back next year :)

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend with some friends, and had a great time! The house is a charming turn of the century dwelling, well maintained and with quaint decor. Janet and Tom are very friendly, and the food was fantastic! We were headed to Traverse City for this trip, so although it was a little further to drive than other places, the scenery along the drive and pleasant atmosphere of the B&B made the experience well worth our while. It's also located near Bellaire, which features Short's Brewery, a nice destination for a beer lover such as myself. In all, I would certainly recommend Bridgewalk to others staying in the area.

We found this bed and breakfast while planning a Labor Day weekend trip to Traverse City for 6 people. We had stayed in a hotel last year and wanted to try something new. We had the house to ourselves which was nice even though we were only there in the mornings and at night. Tom and Janet were very nice and we probably spent at least one hour each day talking to them. The rooms were very nice. Each one was fairly large and unique. The house is a great restoration with a beautiful yard. Breakfast was great each morning. Short's brewery is about 10 miles away. It is the place to go for night life. Great beer. Great food. Live music the night we were there. The only downside was that it was a bit of a drive from the wineries, but we didn't mind. Anywhere in Traverse City gets booked quickly and they inflate their prices for the holiday. This is a great place for larger groups (6,8,10 people) since you can basically have the house to yourself.

Janet and Tom are very nice and personable Innkeepers. Their Inn is very clean and has allot of character. The breakfast recipe's were outstanding and we enjoyed our stay very much. We will return. Also, Tom is a great conversationalist. Thanks to both of you. Greg and Coni, Clarkston MI
