This was a quite one-night stop on our way to the UP. This B&B is immaculate - nice touches include cookies and a fridge stocked with local wines/drinks and a stocked pond with fishing poles at the ready for guests. The house is located right on a highway and you can hear the cars/trucks/Harleys outside, but it's not really a...

Our stay was absolutely amazing. We couldn't think of anything to improve on. Carl & Lisa we were warm and welcoming, and the house has been beautifully restored. The attention to detail was amazing. Every room was full during our stay and we never heard anything coming from other rooms - not even when everyone was up and getting ready...

Nothing less than perfect! We were in TC for a mom-daughter vacation and were very lucky to find this spot due to a cancellation. An absolute beautiful location next to the Grand Traverse Resort -- a fishing pond and working orchards where you can enjoy a walk or a run. Wonderful hosts and great food. Very comfortable common areas --...

The owners and staff go up and beyond to insure that your stay here is perfect. We complained the first night that we could hear snoring from another room that kept me up at night. They explained in old houses the soundproofing is not that great. They then proceeded to move us to another room, and in fact, they did...

What a great weekend celebrating our anniversary at The Country Hermitage B&B in Traverse City! We were greeted by Lisa one of the Inn Keepers upon our arrival. She was full of welcome and warmth as she gave us a brief tour and history of this fantastic old Victorian. As you arrive you will see all the small details they...

Wonderful experience - great breakfasts from Carl that let you skip lunch, wonderful hospitality from Lisa. Surrounded by a cherry farm with warm and inviting common areas. Just outside of Traverse but close enough, and easy to go North to Charlevoix and Petoskey.

Thank you Carl and Lisa for a wonderful experience. Theresa was a pleasure and we had a great time. Breakfast was delicious and Carl was great about preparing gluten free breakfast for my wife. Good location and a comfortable place to stay.

This B&B was simply amazing. My husband and I stayed there for our 1st year anniversary and couldn’t have picked a better place. The hospitality and conversation are worth a visit itself. Carl, Lisa, and Theresa made you feel right at home and were very attentive. The place is a gem out surrounded by a cherry farm. A completely remolded...

An old style Victorian redone--what a beauty. Great views. Big wrap-a-round porch. Peaceful and serene and yet close to a lot of small towns and Traverse City. Both Lisa and Carl are gracious hosts. Carl is a wonderful chef, which makes breakfast really enjoyable. Cookies and Danish fresh from the oven--yummy. Complimentary local beers and wine are an added extra...
