Wind in the Pines

5 on July 22, 2014

Absolutely AMAZING!!!! The BEST B&B that we have ever visited! Amazing hosts, amazing breakfasts, and immaculate facility! So excited to return when we visit Traverse City again! A huge thank you to Dietmar and Marion!

Perfect B & B

5 on July 21, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the Wind in the Pines. Dietmar and Marion are the perfect hosts; they're available if you have a question but don't intrude on your stay. The B&B is immaculate and feels like 'home'. The breakfasts prepared by Marion are 5 star, making a great start to your day. The building was purpose built as a B&B so there aren't any compromises in terms of bath rooms, entry doors, etc. Wonderful Inn keepers, beautiful grounds, and gourmet breakfasts!

Will Definitely Stay Again

We always stay in B&B's if we can when we travel. This was one of the best. Beautiful surroundings, the rooms were good size and oh so comfy. Sofas and chairs begged to be sat in and just relax. The breakfasts were very yummy and you won't need to eat lunch later on. Dietmar and Marion are wonderful hosts. We definitely will stay again.

Peaceful stay in the woods

My girlfriend and I had a lovely, relaxing stay in the Moose Room at Wind in the Pines. Our room and the common areas were spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The lawn and trees around the B&B are beautiful and make for a peaceful environment. Breakfast also was delicious and filling.

Great Accomadations, Great Hosts

I enjoyed my stay at Wind in the Pines. It was the perfect setting for relaxation and rest and within minutes of Traverse City and a short drive from Sleeping Bear. The breakfast was delicious, and the hosts were friendly and welcoming.

Our Favorite B & B!

5 on July 16, 2014

On our recent trip up the Western Michigan coastline, Wind in the Pines was by far our favorite B & B! Everything about this place is top notch... the peaceful setting, easy-access and well-appointed rooms, DELICIOUS breakfast, and warm and friendly hosts! The access to the entire area is very convenient - we will stay here again if/when we get back to the area!

A peaceful retreat during Cherry Festival

We stayed at Wind in the Pines for 4 nights. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Dietmar and Marion were wonderful hosts. The breakfast was great and treated like royalty. We will stay here again next year.

Our stay at the Wind in the Pines was too short! We were made to feel so welcome and comfortable, it was a delight. The rooms, the setting, the host and hostess and the food were all superb! We will definitely plan to visit again. Thank you!
