Upstairs there are two large bathrooms separately serving two bedrooms. For us, there was no hardship whatsoever in this arrangement. The cottage oozes intimacy and comfortable... More

Aberdeen Stone Cottage is a very cute little (3 rooms) B&B in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. Grand Traverse Bay is a short walk, and a short drive to all of the Traverse City restaurants, bars, and shops. Drive a little further to explore Leelanau, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Old Mission. Be sure to eat at The Boat House on Old... More

This was our first time in TC and we decided that a B&B was the way to go. Like always we checked tripadvisor and decided on AberdeenStone Cottage. We had a lovely stay that was made even more comfortable by our hosts, Melinda & Dave. We couldn't have asked for a better location or a cleaner or quieter place. We... More

Lovely couple of nights in this quiet neighborhood. Our host and hostess were very friendly and prepared a fantastic breakfast for us each day. They also had some good suggestions for local wineries to visit. We walked downtown for dinner one night and it was a fine stroll.

A cozy, quaint home reminiscent of Scotland, in the heart of the residential area of the city. An easy long walk to downtown and one Traverse Bay beach. My daughter and I stayed in the Heather room as that is her name. Scottish themed room with an adorable attic hideaway room which could accomodate a child. Innkeepers, Melissa and David,... More
