My husband and I have stayed at the Mitchell Creek in before, but always in a large kitchenette room. We were staying for three nights and one of the cabins were offered to us. We absolutely loved the privacy of it. The unit was so very clean with I'm sure some of the original retro furnishings. The bed was comfortable....

The single, queen bed rooms are cozy, small. Nice newer bathroom. Very clean. Frig & microwave in the room. Coffee, yogurt, and homemade pumpkin roll in lobby for breakfast!! Love the resident dogs. Relaxing to sit by the firepit, along side the Mitchell creek. Owners are great! Friendly, very accommodating. Enjoyed sitting on the porch outside the room with a...

First off this is not a hotel with all of the amenities. It is a quaint place with basic rooms but it is very clean and that is the most important thing to me. The rooms have a small frig and a microwave which is a bonus. In the back is a gazebo with a picnic area and a firepit....

We knew we were only going to need a hotel for a fairly short night of sleep. We wanted to be in Traverse City as we were part of the Water Wonderland Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society's Boats on the Boardwalk Show. We were part of the Friday Night Live display on Front Street until 10 pm...

We rented a couple rooms for our all girls weekend. This place was fantastic!! The owners were so down to earth and friendly. The rooms were clean. Some of the girls or their kayaks in on the river that is on the property and paddled into the bay. They built a bonfire for us each evening. Couldn't ask for better...

Stayed here for 2 days over the 3rd weekend in August. We were in town for a music festival. Room was just enough for the two of us. Had we stayed longer than 2 nights, we probably would have looked into getting a larger room. The bed was comfortable, the air worked well, and the bathroom was a good size....

We stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in room #3. There were only two of us so it was the perfect size room, but it would be small for more than two people, but I'm not sure if they offer rooms that are bigger? We had a beautiful mural on the wall of the old mission lighthouse. The Mitchell...

A little overpriced, but clean and cool. The road it is on provides easy access, but as others have noted it is very, very busy and the entire area is a bit alienating to human beings - though, obviously, this is not the fault of the owners of the Mitchell Creek Inn! The welcome was friendly, the air conditioning plentiful,...

I spent 1 night here in June and was very pleased with my stay. I stayed in a 1 bedroom unit with 1 bed. The rooms are small but they are very well kept, clean and the comfort of the bed was perfect. I was a little nervous when I walked into the room thinking that I would get no...
