About

Located in northern Michigan's prestine Old Mission Peninsula, the Old Mission Inn offers a window to the past including a 70 foot "Hall of History" and period pieces that relive the Inn's early years. In the Spring enjoy cherry blossoms in bloom, and in the Fall take in the stunning color tours. The summer is filled with sun filled days at the beach, a bike ride, area wineries or perhaps a visit to the lighthouse park. Tranquil bonfires and star filled skys will take your breath away. Enjoy area wineries, beaches, parks, bike and ski trails, lighthouse, boat launch, art galleries, antique shops, gardens and top notch restaurants. The area is history rich and offers historic sites close by. Stay where even Babe Ruth himself stayed. Only 16 scenic miles away to Traverse City which features many unique attractions.

Spent the weekend at the Old Mission Inn with our two sons and their wives. The owners Bruce, Angie and their son Tyler made us feel right at home. We will certainly do it again.


Great Service - Felt like home

Angie and Bruce made our stay at Old Mission Inn memorable. They were very welcoming and treated us as if they had know us for years. They know the area very well and give you great recommendations of local area finds. For a taste of history and great people stay at Old Mission Inn.


Great Vacation Destination!

This inn is historic and quaint. The inn-keepers have done a fabulous job restoring the inn. The area is remote and scenic. The cooked-to-order breakfast is wonderful. Guests are able to interact around the evening bonfire and again in the dinig room.


Pleasant experience

The owners were very personable and proud of the history of the inn. The room and bathrooms were clean, breakfast was tasty and the overall atmosphere was very friendly.


A little bit of heaven in the north

5 on September 19, 2009

A sisters' get-away weekend brought us to Old Mission Inn on the Mission Peninsula in northern Michigan. What a surprise when we checked in to an authentic inn with a history just waiting to be told by the charming owners, Angie and Bruce Jensen. Our room was charming with our own bathroom (four other rooms on the second floor shared two bathrooms) and there were two suites on the main floor each with their own bathroom. When we entered the dining room for breakfast, Angie greeted us with an extensive breakfast menu, fresh coffee, and a smile . . . and the food was outstanding as were the others who joined us for repast and conversation. Angie is slowly filling the entire place with items made around 1869 or discovered on the property (underneath the old outhouse). Her enthusiasm for the inn was infectious and we were soon imagining what it must have been like to arrive at the inn in a stagecoach (there's one out front) and feel at home. On our first night, we sat around a campfire tended by our host and marveled at the stars and awesome Michigan night. If you want to experience "Pure Michigan" stay a few nights at the Old Mission Inn . . . you will never forget it! Sandy Kush and Barbara Quinn/sisters!

The Old Mission Inn has been beautifully restored by Angie, Bruce and Tyler. Angie and Tyler were friendly and had great stories about the history of the Inn and the area. We would go back!


The best place to stay

5 on August 18, 2009

I had the best time at Old Mission Inn. Angela, Bruce and Tyler were so kind to us. I f I ever get another chance to stay there again I will. They are the most outgoing people and the house was beautiful. I loved being up there it was so relaxing. If you need a great place to stay I would recommend Old Mission Inn in a heart beat.

Beautiful location; very peaceful and lovely views of the bay. We were very glad we stayed at this end of the peninsula.


Homey B&B

4.2 on August 13, 2009

We stayed for two nights in the Apple Orchard Suite and it was very spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the tour of the Inn Angie gave us when we arrived. We definitely will return to Old Mission Inn if our travels take us this direction again.
