A Warm and Friendly Place

5 on September 01, 2016

We so enjoyed our stay, we were sorry it was only for one night. We booked at the last minute due to a change in plans which found us without a room for the night. Our hostess, Ann, was very accommodating considering we showed up an hour after our expected time of arrival. The house is beautiful and in a great location to experience the Traverse City area. The room was clean with a comfortable bed and had all the amenities we needed. There is a nice living room with a TV and we enjoyed watching a movie there later in the evening. Ann was very flexible with the time for breakfast which we appreciated. Over all we would love to come back and stay a little longer. Thanks Ann!

What a wonderful B&B. Anne really makes you feel at home and is a great cook. We loved the house, our room and bed. We will definitely go back when we are in the area again.

Our Great Stay at Twelve Oaks B & B

5 on July 27, 2013

I just wrote a review of Twelve Oaks B & B and believe in may be lost in my cloud, whatever that is, so here we go again. We were looking for a place to stay in Traverse City, Mi, and having very little luck. I tried a bunch of hotels and 6 B & B's before I called Ann and found that she had a room for us. It has not been open long so did not have any reviews as yet, but I would like to recommend it to anyone. Ann and Tom are very hospitable couple, and nice too, who cooked two great, filling, and yet not fattening breakfasts. There were plenty of choices and I tried almost everything and didn't gain a pound. That was probably because two tenths of a mile from the B & B there is par 3 and an executive golf course, that we played. We also walked up and down the dunes, rode a great bike trail, one of many in the area, ate at several unique and tasty restaurants, walked along the bay, shopped at shops in town, and visited several wineries in the area. The B & B is a great old house that they have updated and are continuing to remodel. The Eckels are very nice people getting started in their new adventure in a beautiful area We will definitely visit them again the next time we are up in Michigan.
