Best B&B in Traverse City

5 on June 26, 2016

Had a great stay at the Wind In The Pines. The rooms were very clean, had everything we needed for our stay and each room has their own bathrooms. Dietmar and Marion were very nice and accommodating hosts. The breakfast each morning was great. The B&B is beautiful and very welcoming outside as well. My wife and I enjoyed sitting outside under the trellis having a drink and just relaxing. On the Saturday while we were there waiting for our ride to pick us up for our wine tour, the owner made us a great margarita, on his own, Good people.We loved our stay and will definitely stay there again. I have already referred many friends to this B&B.

Wonderful place to stay!

Hosts very friendly and gracious. Rooms large and exceptionally clean. Breakfasts were amazing. Can't wait to go back!!!

Best B&B Experience Ever!

The private, quiet location of this B&B makes it a perfect place for relaxation. It is clean and beautifully decorated. The common area is furnished with everything my husband and I and the couple we were traveling with needed for late afternoon/early evening appetizers and drinks (we provided the food and drink) prior to going out for dinner. We stayed in the the Moose Room and found it very comfortable. Again, it was furnished with everything we needed and has been meticulously maintained. Finally, (and I save the best for last ...) the breakfasts were better than the best breakfast I have ever had! Everything was prepared and presented with perfection. From the fruit, to the main course, to the sweet ending ... it was all so delicious! Dietmar and Marion are most gracious hosts, giving just the right amount of attention during breakfast and always available if needed.

Best Bed and Breakfast ever!!!

Christmas break

4.8 on December 29, 2015

My husband and I stayed here 12/26/15 thru 12/28/15 for our Christmas gift to each other. We chose this B&B for its location it is centrally located to downtown Traverse City as well as the wineries. Did we get a bonus! Dietmar and Marion were AMAZING! Their home is lovely and our room (Moose) was so inviting and comfy. Breakfast was so good. Our first morning we had croissants filled with ham and eggs; potatoes with zucchini, summer squash and peppers; mousse with fresh blueberries, and a cake with chocolate chips covered in a glaze. YUMMY! If you walk away from there hungry it's your own fault. Our second breakfast was eggs benedict with canadian bacon, spinach leaves and the hollandaise sauce? OMGosh! We will be going back there in May for our anniversary. Thank you Dietmar and Marion for our enjoyable weekend

Completely Satisfied

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Pine Cone room. The room was even nicer than the pictures online, the breakfast was phenomenal and Ditmar recommended a fantastic Asian restaurant "Red Ginger". The sushi was great and the dragon wings were amazing. Definitely 100% recommend anyone to stay here.

Amazing! A piece of heaven on earth

We have been at this b&b twice and plan to go back next year! We absolutely love it. The food is fabulous and the inn keepers make you feel so welcome. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We celebrated our 20 year anniversary together. . .

We stayed there for our 20 year anniversary. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. We loved the privacy and our own bathroom. We felt very safe. The breakfast was awesome and the host we're wonderful. I look forward to returning and I highly recommend staying there. You'll enjoy yourselves.

Amazing stay!

We stayed in the Pine Cone Room for 4 nights. It was our first time in a B&B so I was a little unsure, but booked it based on location, other reviews and the price. IT WAS THE BEST! Marion and Deitmar were so welcoming and Marion's breakfasts were much more than expected. Everything was delicious. I cannot say enough good about this place. I'm afraid that my expectations will be too high for future stays in other lodging. Highly recommend Wind in the Pines!!
