My husband and I took a “gypsy” trip through Michigan...no plans and no reservations. Although I’m sure it doesn’t happen often, Oviatt House had a room available at the last minute. The house is tidy, welcoming and comfortable. Although we did not have a private...More

Oviatt House Bed and Breakfast is located near the picture perfect downtown area of Traverse City. A full breakfast of organic and locally grown foods, a garden deck for morning coffee if you wish; beautiful early More American antiques in comfortable bedrooms. Across the street, walk along the Boardman River walkway directly to the downtown area and its famous food venues. A 10 minute drive takes you to the wineries of Mission Peninsula. A perfect central location for visiting the Grand Traverse Bay Area. Less
