Everything is original and untouched. We stayed in the suite and it was worth every penny! Plus an original (and very rare)... More

My husband and I are not typically B&B people... introverts that we are, all the mingling can be a little unnerving for us. We booked this inn a) because the reviews were excellent but mainly because b) it was an available and reasonably priced option for an overnight stop on the way to Traverse City. However, we were very pleasantly... More

Cartier Mansion is a lovely B & B, rich in local history and kept beautifully throughout the last century with original appointments and construction. We were in the cottage room, which is absolutely charming. The clawfoot tub in the corner was unique, and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. It is a relatively short walk to the shops and restaurants, but... More
