Walk, drive or bike to restaurants, coffee houses, microbreweries and galleries. Take in the Grand Traverse Region from this charming B+B close to bayfront parks and beaches with easy access to the TART Trail -- we're just nine blocks from downtown Traverse City! Use Aberdeen Stone Cottage Bed and Breakfast as a base to explore everything that TC has to offer - the celebratory bustle of the Cherry Festival and Film Festival, wine tasting, amazing days at the beach, beach climbs, peninsula drives, golfing and skiing. You get the picture...
This lovely, romantic first-floor room with queen-size bed and en suite bath looks out upon a small, private walled patio. Relax and enjoy!
This light-filled upstairs room is named for beautiful Scottish heather that provided material for brooms and thatched roofs. Rest well under the eaves with the flexibility of a king-size bed or two twins. Look for the hidden space behind the small door ~ an inviting, playful room with toys, a small bed and a tiny window overlooking the front yard.
Remembering the Scottish America's Cup racing yacht, Thistle, this second floor room offers the flexibility of a king-size bed or two twins. Enjoy the view of our perennial garden below the windows.

We loved the charm on the outside and the warmth and comfort exhibited by our hosts on the inside. Conversation and the fantastic breakfast each day were a wonderful way to start each day. They catered to our every whim and the presentation at our meals was outstanding. Every need that you could imagine could be found in our room as well. It will now be our getaway in the same equation as Traverse City.Lovely and fun and restful!

Because of positive reviews, I decided to make reservations at this B&B, so I certainly wanted to contribute in case you are trying to decide as well! I recently stayed at the Aberdeen Stone Cottage. The location is fantastic, as it is situated near downtown shopping and restaurants. When we were greeted by the innkeepers, we were grateful to step into a relaxed atmosphere and felt comfortable in this home. Our room was as expected; comforting and clean. It felt private enough for the two of us. And let's not forget about breakfast! It was wonderful. Actually, I wish Dave and Melinda were here this morning to cook for me. We will not hesitate to stay here again if we can manage to get another getaway, but what's more, is that this B&B welcomes children. It is difficult to find places to stay with our kids and we are happy to have this B&B as a resource that will accommodate us!

Very welcoming, clean, friendly and cozy. The only downside was a shared bathroom.

We love sand under our feet and snow in our hair, the dramatic skies and views we see every day. Those, plus great books, good music, strong coffee, vibrant food, excellent wine. Our newest interest -- and joy -- is innkeeping!

Oatmeal Cherry Scones
Our oatmeal scones are flaky, buttery, delicate and not overly sweet. Tart dried cherries -- grown here in the nation's Cherry Capital -- are baked right in, adding a wonderful dimension to these breakfast treats!
