Very pleased with our experience. Dietmar & Marion really know how to operate this beautiful home. Breakfast was unbelievable every morning, the rooms are as clean as you would want them, comfortable beds. We will ever back to visit for sure.


Golf and Wedding

5 on August 23, 2017

Dietmar and Marion are the best B&B owners that I have met - we traveled to Traverse City for my niece's wedding and a little golf - and we could not have asked for a nicer venue - the rooms were 'roomy' and the food (while we only ate breakfast one day due to golf tee times) were amazing. The ability to use the common room and allow my mother-in-law to 'hang out' was a bonus. Highly recommend this B&B and will definitely stay there again!!! Thank you Dietmar and Marion (and Spotty)


Wonderful experience, AGAIN!

Yet again, our stay (sixth so far) was a wonderful, restful, and memorable one. Our hosts went way out of their way to make certain that our stay was comfortable and happy. Breakfasts were delicious and unique. We enjoy Wind in the Pines and it is our go-to place in the Traverse City area.


Another great stay.

Beautiful Respite near Many Michigan Sites

5 on August 09, 2017

Just minutes from Traverse City my husband and I stayed at peaceful Wind in the Pines. Large comfortable, clean accommodations literally in a pine forest. Easy access and parking. Friendly hosts and excellent breakfast. All this while still being located near Traverse City resturants and shops, the fabulous Music House museum, lighthouses, public parks and beaches and only a half hour from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. Fantastic place to use as a base for day trips in the area. Top Notch!


Beautiful and Peaceful

During my stay here I jokingly tried to come up with some minor complaint to include in an online review to balance the positive things I could say. I came up quite short. The room was beautiful and the common area was homey and relaxing. The setting was beautiful, peaceful, and made sitting outside on the patio a pleasure. Marion's breakfasts were excellent – delicious and filling. This place is wonderful and I don’t have even a tiny complaint to balance the review.

Secluded and peaceful

We were created upon check in and shown the grounds. The Innkeepers are friendly yet give you the privacy that matches this gem in the woods. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and we are looking forward to many more. The breakfasts were great and very filling. We enjoyed getting to talk with other guests over breakfast. Would definitely stay here again as great proximity to everything around Traverse City yet out of town enough to lave the craziness.


Quiet and Lovely B&B

4.6 on July 12, 2017

A B&B is only as good as the hosts and we loved Dietmar and Marion. They are so accommodating and enjoyable, lovely breakfast and they take pride in their B&B. We were only a few minutes outside of Traverse City so we got the best of both worlds.
