The inn offers a very comfortable stay with great service and excellent food. I recommend staying on the bayside for the view and to avoid street noise. They do have an elevator and the rooms and common areas are welcoming.

This is an excellent inn in the charming town of Petosky. The inn is attractively decorated and well maintained. The grounds are well groomed and beautifully planted. The food is tasty and artfully presented. The inn's staff is very pleasant and helpful.
