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.

My wife found Country Heritage online. It was the cleanest place I have every stayed besides my own home. The innkeepers were delightful. The only mistake we made was not staying longer.


The Perfect Getaway

4.4 on July 21, 2016

Lisa and Carl made us feel as if we were family, and they made sure that there was no shortage of things to do, from long games, board games, books and movies to fishing, hiking, biking, dining and shopping. They are terrific conversationalists, wonderful cooks, knowledgeable tour guides, and manage the most beautiful B&B we have ever encountered. The two nights went by quickly and we did not make a dent in all of the activities and services they offered.


Exactly what a B&B should be.

My wife and I stayed for 2 days/nights on the property and it was absolutely perfect. The rooms are really nice, not too small and they're furnished well. If you want more space then you can sit downstairs or on the decks or out by the pond. The fire pit was ready to go for a night time camp fire that we enjoyed out by the pond. Lisa and Carl are both full of information for anything you're interested in. The breakfast served in the morning is beyond expectations and we were asked if we had any preferences or allergies beforehand. The property is gorgeous to walk or run around with cherry trees, a creek, an old red wedding barn, beehives and other wildlife. We had a great stay and hope to come back again.
