I choose historic B&Bs and inns whenever possible, so when I needed to book a business trip I decided on the Terrace Inn. I was very impressed throughout my stay with the extra effort front desk and the owners made to accommodate my needs, including providing me with generous amounts of homemade granola, yogurt and hard-boiled eggs in the fridge...

Looked forward to New Year's Eve dinner (at the 1911 restaurant) and sleigh ride with friends. We arrived at 5:25 to find sleigh ride overbooked, told we MIGHT be able to reschedule at the last one (8:00). We were able to get an earlier seating for dinner (originally scheduled at 6:30) at 5:50. Problems in a "nut shell". Drinks took...

We stayed overnight in a King Suite. Our room was beautiful. Patty and Mo, the innkeepers were very warm and friendly hosts. The dining room was closed so we were not able to sample the enticing menu. We will definitely be back.

I'm sorry the restaurant wasn't open during your stay! I do hope that you can visit when it is. Please consider letting us know when you make your lodging reservation you would like dinner..it may be possible even if restaurant is closed. That being said it would probably be a limited choice and Mo and I will probably be serving...

We gathered with a group of old friends (friends for 50+ years) for overnight accommodations and dinner. Everything was great, and staff went out of their way to accommodate us, even helping with one who is wheelchair-bound to get him in and out of the facility. The food was delicious, and our server Tiffany was over the top friendly and...

My new husband and I got to spend 5 days in this BEAUTIFUL INN. Our reason for picking this particular inn was from a friend that had eloped 2 weeks prior and he stated how friendly the staff was and inexpensive the Elopement Package was. So; with that information in hand, we went for a Thanksgiving Package and an Elopement...

It was truly a wonderful experience to host you both at such a special occasion as your marriage. It was made even better that you were open to engaging with other guests, helping decorate the Christmas tree..and patient when it took some time for me to get the CD out to you. You are both very special people and we...

We just got back from a four day weekend in Harbor Springs. We always eat one night at the Terrance Inn. The food is excellent and the atmosphere fantastic. We could not enjoy eating outside on the beautiful terrace because it was cold, but inside was just as good. The staff is incredible and very friendly. We can't wait to...

We've had our Thanksgiving meal here at least three years in a row and have never been disappointed. The room is beautiful with very seasonal views looking out the big windows at Bayview, especially if it snows! The food is excellent, with variations every year that keep us interested (and sated!). We love the personal attention paid to the diners...

Extremely friendly staff. Very accommodating. A little out of town but nice location. Easy walk to the beach but beach was not dog friendly. Clean, large room. Would definitely stay here again. Garden apartment would be great for an extended stay.
