We got the one of the least expensive rooms. It was quite small, but adequate. Main thing was, it was on the first floor. My bad knees couldn't have navigated the steps. The house next door was being reroofed, so it was quite noisy during the day, but tolerable. Breakfast was quite good for me as the fruit was fresh and the scones tasty. We went elsewhere for dinner as the limited menu was quite expensive for our tastes. We enjoyed our stay, but probably will not return.
While attending an out-of-town wedding, we booked our stay at the Terrace Inn. Wow! We had a wonderful time at the wedding but more importantly our stay was an extension of a most perfect weekend. The front desk lady, Belinda, was more than accommodating - it was like we were guests in her home. Definitely would highly recommend the Terrace Inn to all.
Terrace Inn is a grand old lady, lots of charm, excellent service, and very good food. Breakfast on the porch is a perfect way to start the day - morning walk among lovely gardens and picturesque old homes - explore the downtown and surrounding areas - - return to dine (don't pass up the whitefish or the walleye) and watch the sun go down.
This hotel is right in the center of things in Bay View. It is a bit shabby, but not in a bad way. The hotel just shows its age (as it should). The carpets are worn but the place is immaculate. The walls are paper thin, so be aware that your neighbor's TV, sneezes and other noises will be heard loud and clear. Still, quaint place and the staff are very kind.
We went here for our 25th Anniversary and had dinner there our first night. We ate on the back porch and they had wonderful music played on guiter. Our food was very good. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the filet. Our room was smaller than we would have liked but the service was great and we loved our stay at the Terrace Inn.
We needed a place to stay while attending a wedding. Wanted more than a rectangular room with a door that opens to the outside - we wanted charm and relaxation. The breakfast and dinners were great and to have the choice of eating in or on the terrace was a plus; we chose the terrace! We will definitely and happily go back again.
Dinner was outstanding. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty but we prefer hot oatmeal with raisins, nuts etc and plain yogurt in the morning. After there for a couple of days we learned that the eggs could be cooked to order but we were not told that information up front. All in all it was good but if we were to return and stay longer than 2 days, I will bring my own oatmeal and fixings. The beds were comfortable and rooms adequately appointed. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Feels like a step back in time. Internet pictures do not do the place justice. So relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay there and would return in a heartbeat.
A charming historic inn in a peaceful, picturesque setting. Gracious common areas and comfortable rooms. Outstanding front desk staff. Delicious breakfasts and a lovely evening dining experience. Easy drives for day trips to Traverse City and Mackinaw Island.
The front desk employees-Ashlie and Belinda were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was very good and substantial. Sitting on the outside terrace is relaxing.The dinner was outstanding-crab cakes and planked white fish. We have stayed 4 times.
There isn't anything about the Terrace Inn that I don't love. My most recent stay was my seventh. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.A special thanks to Belinda at the front desk. She's a wonderful woman who is kind and thoughtful to all who stay at the TI. Ask for her :)
This is our absolutely favorite place to stay when in Petoskey. The ambiance is incredible - relaxing, refreshing, welcoming, etc. We did experience one drawback this year.. We especially enjoy dining outside for breakfast; but were unable to do this because several dead bugs resided on the paper tablecloths. The dining staff needs to insure that all areas are clean and inviting for guests. This will definitely determine whether we book reservations in the future.
The owners of this lodge were friendly, welcoming, and customer-focused. The location is excellent, about a 2 minute drive to Walloon Lake Village, which has boat/kayak rentals, a small beach, park, village store, restaurant and some shopping. The included breakfast exceeded expectations, with fresh pastries every day and morel mushroom quiches on Sunday. It was a very quiet, relaxing place to stay for a few days. We enjoyed the shared living space and watched a DVD movie there one night. The rooms are clean and just as pictured.
Loved this place! It was so nice having a home away from home but with no tv, etc. It was so refreshing. Loved Monica and Michael! The continental breakfast was perfect! They offered many places to visit while we were there. Would definitely go again!
Stayed over 4th of July weekend. Was more than happy with the room. Stayed in the queen w/full bunk beds. Room was rather small but exactly as pictured and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was served every morning in a small group area shared by maybe 20 other guests. We never felt rushed or crowded. Wifi worked well the entire time. Overall I would say the pictures are an honest representation overall. Would definitely stay here again if traveling through the area.
Very welcoming,Very quaint, Very charming, Very relaxing! My wife and I have just finished spending (2) days here and wished it could have been more. All accommodations are well kept. The breakfast should accommodate most anyone's appetite whether it be fresh fruit, eggs, sausages, waffles, pastries, etc.. Staff is very helpful.
We loved our stay at Bayview B&B! The location was wonderful, right on the water with the front door opening onto the main street on the island. Definitely be sure to be there at 3PM for the fresh baked cookies and at 8PM for the dessert. Delicious! Breakfast was wonderful as well. Rooms are clean and cute - ours was a bit small (my 6'3" husband had to duck when changing so as not to hit the fan), but that is just the layout of the building. We hope to return!
Very cute little room on the main floor, loved the idea of coffee and teas being available early in AM. Have stayed here many times and will be back in the fall. Breakfasts are nice with fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, bacon sausages, scones. Great location.
I absolutely LOVE this inn. I write this review with some apprehension as I really do not want people to discover this treasure nestled in the community of Bay View. The owners, innkeeper, chef and housekeeping staff are amazing! We visit the T.I. about 2-3 times a year and am NEVER disappointed. A happy guest
