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.

Awesome B&B

My husband and I enjoyed our recent one night stay at Country Hernitage. The B&B is very beautiful both inside and outside. The rooms are decorated very nice. We stayed in the Kinsey room and found it to be very cozy and comfortable. The outside grounds are gorgeous in the middle of a cherry orchard. My husband and I really enjoyed sitting outside on the deck after returning from dinner. A very beautiful setting. We also enjoyed Carl and Lisa (the innkeepers) and their knowledge of the area. The gourmet breakfast was outstanding. We had a very lovely time.


Cozy quaint & delightful

Country Hermitage is an A+

We come to the Country Hermitage for our own little get away while visiting my parents for their 50th Anniversary. It was great the rooms were lovely and comfortable. The staff was so kind and breakfasts were outstanding. I am a runner and I ran the property each morning. Great location and the staff is there to help you with activities and discounts if possible on things to do. An example is we got discounts on golf.

Gorgeous B & B

5 on September 13, 2015

My husband and I just celebrated our 14 year anniversary this past weekend and this is where we stayed. The host and hostess were very friendly people. They knew where everything were all the good restaurants and the B & B is well maintained and gorgeous throughout. I hated to leave. All rooms were made different but very roomy. They do have a dog and she growled at us. She is very very friendly. I plan to go and stay again. The B&B sits on 400 acres of cherry blossoms. It is so beautiful. It is about 8 minutes from Traverse City. The host and hostess were wonderful and let you relax and enjoy your stay. They are very friendly to everyone and I recommend this to all my friends. Thank you again Lisa and Carl for having us!!!! Until next time...
