About

Cairn House Bed & Breakfast is a stately, two-story colonial home in a serene, natural setting located two miles north of the village of Elk Rapids, MI, near Traverse City, Michigan. Guests are invited to stroll about the one and one-half acres of manicured grounds or spend the day enjoying Elk Lake (directly across the road from Cairn House, no lake access) or nearby Torch Lake. Your hostess takes great pleasure in sharing the elegant furnishings collected while living abroad. Relax in front of the fireplace in the spacious living room or retreat to the sun room to enjoy a book. The "pineapple", the colonial symbol of hospitality, dates back to the days when sea captains returned from their long voyages. Placing a pineapple outside their door signified that they were welcoming friends and neighbors for a visit and sharing their hospitality. Cairn House welcomes you to share the warm hospitality while you explore the endless activities available in and around Elk Rapids.

Comfortable stay at Cairn House

3.6 on September 29, 2013

Clean and pleasant surroundings. Helen, the owner, was friendly and interesting to talk to.


Third Time Staying at Cairn House B & B

5 on September 18, 2013

This is the third time my family has stayed at the Cairn House B & B. That alone should indicate how much we enjoy our stays at the Cairn House. The lovely bedrooms are comfortable and clean. Helen makes a delicious breakfast. Cairn House is close to Elk Rapids and Traverse City downtowns. There are countless of attractions for everyone's interest. Sports (golfing, tennis, biking, swimming,etc), shopping (clothes, art, food) and culture (shows, music).
