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 nine blocks from downtown Traverse City! Walk, drive or bike to boutiques, galleries, restaurants, coffee houses, and microbreweries. 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. (Children may sleep in here, but grownups can only visit!)

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!

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

Could not have asked for a better getaway than Aberdeen. Although Melinda and David have been hosting since Labor Day, they were naturally welcoming and engaging as if they'd been providing hospitality for a lifetime. The rooms are modest but cozy and the perfect place to unwind after a long journey on the peninsulas. David was an enterprising chef, treating us to a traditional Scottish breakfast our first dawn, complete with basted eggs, neeps and mash and providing gourmet scones with a full spread every morning thereafter. We even got to hear him sing a few bars! Melinda was splendid with guiding us to our first venture to Traverse City, highlighting the ideal places and routes to take. She even invited us to a splendid art exhibit on Sleeping Bear that we could have never discovered without her help. This duo made for a perfect dynamic and were accommodating for my wife and I, who are 20 weeks along expecting our first. We will absolutely utilize this B&B again

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!
