My mom took my family on a trip to this B&B and we LOVED it!!! The rooms are cozy, comfortable, and large. The bathrooms are nicely equipped and comfortable as well. The innkeepers are lovely people who are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Every night a snack is prepared, dessert is prepared, and there is time to socialize with the innkeepers and the other guests. My six-year-old son also went with us, and he loved it. He loved all of the rooms and the decor. Also, the innkeeper found a white-tailed deer outside one evening, and he ran up the stairs to our room to get my son to go out and see the deer. They got within four feet of the deer. My son was absolutely in awe of it! We loved that the innkeepers were so kind and accommodating. The B&B was super clean, the breakfasts were amazing, and the innkeepers were amazing at giving suggestions about what to do that day, or what restaurants to eat at depending on our mood. They also told us what types of local festivities were happening that day as well. I cannot say enough great things about this place. I hope to go back soon! It was a little piece of paradise.

The owners, Jeannie and Dave, do a marvelous job. The house and gardens are maintained meticulously, the breakfast is sumptuous and always a pleasant surprise when it is served in the sunroom, and the hosts offer very useful advice what to do in the area. Not to forget the desserts offered in the evening, e.g. peach cobbler. Since we were 3 travelers, we had the 2 adjacent rooms on the top floor with a shared bath room. They were very nice and the beds extremely comfortable. Attention to details is throughout, e.g. fresh bath towels every day, high-quality shampoo and soap in the shower, lots of maps of the area, menus of the local restaurant etc. There are 2 rules to adhere to (arrival time, breakfast at 9) - but I think these 2 rules allow the owners to focus on the important stuff - that is to make everybody feel at home and allow them to have a great vacation. We certainly did !

We had an exceptional two day's at the Horton Creek Inn Bed & Breakfast! The rooms are clean,warm,and inviting. We were treated like family, from the outstanding breakfasts to the wonderful evening deserts. Our host's Dave and Jeannie were very accomadating in every way. My wife and I really enjoyed the stay. We would highly recommend the Inn to anyone and everyone!!!!!

If you are looking for a place to get away and unwind then I would highly recommend the Horton Creek Inn B&B. You will be surrounded with peace & beauty and spoiled by Jeannie & Dave. You may arrive a weary traveler but you will leave refreshed and wanting to turn back around when you get to the end of the driveway. The breakfast is wonderful and you can spend an entire day just roaming the grounds and surrounding area enjoying the scenery and wildlife. Randy, Lynda, Alec, Micaela F.

We found Horton Creek Inn by a stroke of luck searching the internet for a place to escape and find peace and quiet at the end of an annual family reunion. We stayed one night and have been back many times since. Horton Creek is perfect in summer, fall and winter. We have not yet been in spring. We start to relax when we make the reservations and even look forward to the drive. Jeannie and Dave are perfect hosts. I only wish that it weren't a fourteen hour drive to get there.

I can't tell you how amazing this inn is, you simply must visit! We just celebrated our wedding in Charlevoix and booked the entire Inn for our family and friends! It was like staying with family! Jeannie and Dave made us feel like we were at home, just a little farther North! The grounds, games and of course the pool, we simply couldn't get enough! A must visit for all you midwesterners. We look forward to visiting year after year! Thank you is not enough to show our gratitude!

We have stayed at the Horton Creek Inn in summer, fall, and winter. It is like going home. Jeannie and Dave are welciming and extremely helpful. The Inn and grounds are immaculate. We wish we could find a similar place to stay closer to our home in New England but when we do, we will still return to Horton Creek.

We were impressed from the moment we pulled into the driveway and were met by the owners. The inn is just beautiful inside and out. The Babbitts were cordial and accommodating. The full breakfast every morning was wonderfully prepared and delicious. We have never stayed at a nicer B & B and will definitely be back again. It is a great place to stay if you want quiet and relaxation in the north woods of Michigan.
