My best friend and I had a perfect week end getaway at the Terrace Inn! Patty and Mo were absolutely amazing hosts and I felt like I was at home! I loved the charm and comfort and the feel of stepping back in time. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful! I highly recommend the Terrace Inn for a romantic get away...

I read this review recently and immediately spoke with the front desk staff who was involved in the situation directly. I asked her describe the situation in detail. When situations occur like this, in which there the shower required a plumber and the couple needed to be moved, it is important to look at all the options for the guests,...

What a spectacular structure. This inn, built in 1911 is glorious. We spent one night and enjoyed it very much. Gracious and friendly owners too. Beautiful neighborhood surrounded by magnificent and charming homes. Stay here if your are coming to the Petoskey/Harbor Springs area.

This is a good budget B & B in the lovely neighborhood of Bay View. It is surrounded by many Victorian structures that besides being historic are also beautiful and grand. If you visit budget time to walk this historic neighborhood. The Terrace Inn itself has many interesting common areas with nice porches. Overall the inn is adequate but in...

For $79.00 a night you cannot beat this inn. The owner was very outgoing, helpful and interesting. The rooms very very clean, not musty at all, which I was concerned about since it is old. Breakfast was wonderful; hot and a big variety to choose from. Loved the location, good beer! Would go back again but not sure I would...

Staying at the Terrace Inn is like taking a step back in time.....back to a simpler, less extravagant time when comfort did not mean high end. The Inn has a bit of a worn feel, though our room was very comfortable and attractive and, most importantly, the bed was so comfortable! The room was small, but we did not spend...

The 1911 Restaurant is a real "sleeper" in this area unless you already know about Bay View in Petoskey. We had seen the sign from the main road through town going North; however, none of our friends in the Boyne City area knew much about this restaurant. We went with a couple who had lived here for 35 years and...

Charming place, great location, beautiful historic neighborhood, very reasonable rates...but... * At check-in, we found no towels in our room, except for the wet one hanging from the bathroom door. * The next day, again no towels in the room.

This historic inn is very nice and we enjoyed our stay in this very unique neighborhood. The 3rd night of our trip was a Saturday and there was going to be a wedding taking place that evening.
