About

The Country Hermitage Bed and Breakfast in the Traverse City area continues a 130 year old agricultural tradition on a 400 acre working cherry farm overlooking East Grand Traverse Bay. This Victorian style farmhouse was built in 1883 by the John Pulcipher Family. Restoration began in early 1999; every detail of the farmhouse has been lovingly restored from original wood paneling to the ten-foot pocket doors. Discover the beauty and tranquility of Traverse City's most romantic Bed and Breakfast while you enjoy our gracious hospitality. The Innkeepers strive to create a relaxed & memorable experience. We are happy to help our guests with meal reservations or other adventures you wish to plan while staying at the Country Hermitage B&B.

Great getaway

4.6 on September 05, 2014

Needed last minute getaway and found availability and flexibility here. We were repeat guests (12 years ago!) and remembered enjoying our stay. We were delightfully surprised that we also received a return stay discount!


The Best B&B Experience

4.8 on September 04, 2014

Staying at Country Hermitage Bed and Breakfast was absolutely amazing. Lisa and Carl were delightful and cooked us the most amazing breakfast every morning. The rooms were great and the house was beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here. The house is fairly close to downtown TC and the wineries in the area. Such a great experience!


Relaxing Vacation

5 on September 04, 2014

We recently celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary by making a return trip to this beautiful bed and breakfast. The serenity of the location, the fabulous breakfast by Carl and the local wineries are only a few of the reasons we love this bed and breakfast. I know we will be back again and hopefully sooner than later - life is too short!


Charming Stay

5 on September 03, 2014

A charming bed & breakfast experience. We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and took advantage of the free extra day special. A delightful home with old world charm just a few miles from downtown Traverse City. Despite this it does have very modern elements. A great place if you want to relax for the weekend or longer. Not just a place to sleep at and get breakfast, but a place where you can enjoy your stay. The grounds are beautifully taken care of and there is a great fishing pond and plenty of lawn chairs to lounge in. A gourmet breakfast is cooked fresh every morning and the company was delightful. Definitely recommend. We will be back here for future stays in Traverse.


Could not have asked for a better experience!

My husband and I spent a few days at this lovely bed and breakfast and were thoroughly impressed! The accommodations were wonderful, the breakfasts phenomenal, impeccable service, we could not have been happier. The porches were wonderful for reading in the evenings and resting our feet after days of shopping and exploring. Gemma, the four-legged innkeeper helped with some puppy love. The grounds were gorgeous and the location is great for exploring nearby areas, This was probably the best B&B experience we have had to date. We will definitely stay again!


TOP NOTCH QUIET RETREAT

4.6 on August 27, 2014

We stayed at many B&B's in the past and this one was the BEST! During our 7 day stay, we found Lisa and Carl very welcoming and accommodating. The breakfast and treats were exceptional. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the outdoor decks and pond very relaxing. We would definitely return and highly recommend the Country Hermitage to all! NOREEN & VINCE


Anniversary get away

4.6 on August 25, 2014

Very nice Bed and Breakfast. Lisa and Carl were very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much, we added an extra night! Very close to local attractions, but we also enjoyed lounging on the grounds, sharing wine by the fire, fishing, boche ball.... Great food & great time. Would definitely come back again!


Wonderful stay at Country Hermitage!!

5 on August 24, 2014

This facility is beautiful and Carl and Lisa are the ultimate hosts. The rooms were extremely comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and the small extra touches were much appreciated. Our stay at Country Hermitage was thoroughly enjoyable. One of the best B&B's in which we have stayed!


Highly Recommend!

5 on August 20, 2014

We chose Country Hermitage as the location for our small, intimate wedding ceremony and it was just perfect! The pictures do not quite capture the quality and serenity of this majestic B&B. Carl and Lisa do not miss one detail, and the food and service was outstanding. We will definitely be back for anniversaries to come!


Fantastic weekend stay!

5 on August 18, 2014
