Spotless home just outside of Traverse City

We stayed in the Moose room. It was very large and comfortable, as was the ensuite bathroom, and both were absolutely spotless. The B&B has numerous small touches that make it stand out above others we've stayed at - chocolates in the room, a refrigerator stocked with beverages, local information on restaurants, and delicious breakfast. It is just 5 minutes away from Traverse City, but feels like you are being pampered in the woods, away from the hustle and bustle. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely Beautiful

My wife and child stayed at Wind in the Pines while we were in the area to attend a wedding. Our experience was phenomenal! The grounds and house were beautiful and meticulously cared for. Having stayed in several bed and breakfasts in this general area, I can say with absolute certainty that this is the best. I strongly recommend staying at Wind in the Pines.

Wonderful B&B

Will definitely stay here again. A little hard to find late at night, beware ... Google and Apple Maps puts in in the wrong place use the map on their website. Immaculate, wonderful setting, great white pines, setting and room. Breakfast was good except it was only one selection of entree.

Wonderful Weekend Spot

We had the most wonderful stay. The rooms are comfortable and spotless, the hospitality unmatched and food was delicious. Wind in the Pines is very popular so be sure to book early. We can't wait to return next summer.

Away oasis in Traverse City!

We were in Traverse City for a wedding and stayed two nights at Wind in the Pines. Dietmar and Marion are gracious hosts and their home is beautiful! We stayed in the Bear room which is spacious with the most comfortable bed. From the moment you enter their home you can see all the detail that was put into the home. The woodwork, furniture, amenities all are top notch. I was able to relax for a little bit in their backyard and it was so calming with the fountain, beautiful landscape and peaceful setting I could have stayed there forever. The breakfast is amazing! The location of the home is only a few minutes from downtown Traverse City.

Lovely stay

This place is top notch if you are looking for a quiet place away from the busy downtown. With just 3 guest rooms it is quiet and peaceful. Everything was spotless . Marian serves an awesome breakfast every morning at 9:00. She is a wonderful cook and everything is presented so nicely. I would definitely stay here again when returning to Traverse City.

We wish we could have stayed more than one night. We'll be back.

Great Stay!

Great stay all the way around. Impeccably clean rooms and outstanding breakfasts with great variety. Very peaceful setting and the owners are more than happy to help out in any way possible. Will definitely try to arrange another stay.
