This quaint, 1911 Inn is the best mix of hotel and bed and breakfast. Every beautiful, comfortable room is uniquely decorated. The ambiance is authentic with beautiful touches that reflect the period in which this Inn was built. In-room fireplace and the jetted whirlpool tub in our suite added the perfect amenities to complete a relaxing, romantic stay! A horse-drawn...

We were part of a group in the Petoskey area to cross-country ski and someone else made the reservations at the Terrace Inn. It's almost 100 years old, and there are a few expected issues with an older facility, but the owners made everything right as soon as we mentioned any issues. The rooms were all different, and ours had...

The Terrace Inn could be so much nicer with updates. For instance, the ceramic tiles around the fireplace, in the room, missing and a stack of tiles were next to the fireplace. Threadbare carpet and bracket holes in window casings can be repaired/replaced. It was also odd to find a container of what appeared to be cream cheese in the...

We spent a romantic weekend at the Terrace Inn. The room was small but comfortable. The historic nature of the place was pleasant and laid back. A top feature here is the restaurant, Great food. The menu is limited to a few items when we visited, but the planked whitefish and the Hemingway chicken were fantastic. The breakfast buffet was...

I've been to The Terrace Inn twice now--once with my sister and another time with my husband. Both times were absolutely wonderful experiences. The inn is old and you know this fact as you walk in. Yes, the floors squeak. Yes, the hallway is a little crooked. It just adds even more lovely charm to this place. The owners are...

Exactly what we wanted, a comfortable bed, in a warm room, with an excellent made to order breakfast and exceptional coffee. The original 1911 ambiance is as authentic as any museum I've ever been in while maintaining our comfort requirements. The staff was very friendly and readily helped us with suggested visits in the surrounding area. We will return

Don't waste your money. It's a dump. Floors are crooked and squeak, dirty,window air conditioner unit reminds me of when I was in college and had no money. The place is old and looks nothing like photos pictured.

We rented two rooms on the second floor for my brothers birthday. He was very interested in the history of the inn and the ghost stories that come along with it. We had rooms 211 and 212. The rooms were by themselves at the end of a hall so it was a nice location for a small group to have...

My husband and I eloped here in 2011, with Mo and Patty handling everything! They are simply the best. We enjoy returning for our anniversary.

My girlfriend and I rented a room for the weekend to celebrate our one year anniversary. And it was beautiful; we had the tree tops room where we could see all the different fall colors from our window.
