My new husband and I got to spend 5 days in this BEAUTIFUL INN. Our reason for picking this particular inn was from a friend that had eloped 2 weeks prior and he stated how friendly the staff was and inexpensive the Elopement Package was. So; with that information in hand, we went for a Thanksgiving Package and an Elopement...

We just got back from a four day weekend in Harbor Springs. We always eat one night at the Terrance Inn. The food is excellent and the atmosphere fantastic. We could not enjoy eating outside on the beautiful terrace because it was cold, but inside was just as good. The staff is incredible and very friendly. We can't wait to...

We've had our Thanksgiving meal here at least three years in a row and have never been disappointed. The room is beautiful with very seasonal views looking out the big windows at Bayview, especially if it snows! The food is excellent, with variations every year that keep us interested (and sated!). We love the personal attention paid to the diners...

My sister and I go for a weekend per year for fall fun and we chose The Terrace Inn, and we scored! Belinda, who works "sun up til sun down" was just the best behind the desk. She was friendly and happy and a good sense of humor! She let us know all we needed to know about everything we...

Extremely friendly staff. Very accommodating. A little out of town but nice location. Easy walk to the beach but beach was not dog friendly. Clean, large room. Would definitely stay here again. Garden apartment would be great for an extended stay.

Located in a historic house and neighborhood was different. Rooms with one queen were small. No new toiletries were left the second day and had to take a roll of T.P. off a housekeeping cart. The lady working the front desk can multitask and still have a great attitude. i think her name is Belinda. The part I liked best...

Thank you for your review. I will address the toilet paper issue with the housekeepers. We do not leave toiletries the second day, but they can be requested. Glad you enjoyed the breakfast and yes, Belinda is amazing!

We visited Petoskey and stayed here, based upon Trip Advisor reviews. The Inn and Restaurant did not disappoint. While it was quite hot when we were here, each room's air conditioning unit solved our sleeping problems. We ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay and found the food to be good. We especially loved their watermelon salad.

What a wonderful place to stay in the Petoskey area. Quaint, warm, very comfortable, and great breakfast. We had a 3rd floor room. I had read some previous reviews that said 3rd floor was the quietest. I agree. Slept until 8 both mornings without a sound. Room was comfortable, wifi slow at times. Breakfast included fresh fruit, breads, yogurt, hot...

We went for a fall visit to see the color through the Tunnel of Trees. Great trip, unfortunately we were a little early for the color. The Terrace Inn was a quaint and wonderful place to stay.

We read about a 1911 Inn, decided to check it out. It's located in a quite neighborhood, on street parking, but I would say safe. No elevator, but it was a treat to be able to get a room, it fills up quickly. We'd been touring Michigan 10 days and I was a little skeptic at first, but my wife...
