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.

This is a country bed and breakfast atmosphere. They offer fishing in their beautiful pond that is stocked with fish, grape fields surround the house. It has a beautiful wrap around porch. Food was excellent and we enjoyed our stay there. The only draw back is our room was small and so was the bathroom.

Our stay was everything we hoped. We received a nights' stay as a Wedding gift and had no idea what to expect. The room was beautiful, loved the fire place. Breakfast was amazing. We would definitely stay here again!!

We stayed for 3 nights in mid-October in the Pulcipher Room. This was the second time we've stayed there, and we are sure to return. It's quiet, clean and Lisa and Carl provide a great experience. The B&B is located near downtown Traverse City, and not far from other destinations. It's relaxing to sit on the back deck, and take a walk down to the pond and around the grounds. We loved the breakfasts (including vegetarian-friendly options) everyday, and enjoyed the company of the other guests.
