The Terrace Inn and 1911 Restaurant is located in Bay View Association, a Historic community established in 1875. Downtown Petoskey, one of Smithsonian’s top 20 small towns is only a mile away so guests can enjoy year round cultural and recreational activities, or just get some much needed rest and relaxation. Make the Inn your “home base” and visit Mackinac Island on a day trip or venture to other charming towns within a few miles from “home”.
The Terrace Inn has 37 rooms, ranging from cozy “cottage” rooms, our most authentic and affordable to King Whirlpool suites with kitchenettes. All rooms have cable TV, a/c, clock radio, hairdryer, and include hot breakfast buffet. Rates are based on double occupancy and range from $74 for a cottage room during quiet season to $189 for a king suite in peak season on the weekend.
The 1911 Restaurant
Our casual fine dining restaurant is open daily in summer and weekends Sept, October, January and February. We also have a tea room and outdoor garden terrace, which serves desserts and light lunch fare, open seasonally. Sunday and Monday nights are reserved for our specialty Pizzas, which are very popular! The Fairview Terrace is romantic and for adults only after 6 p.m. Cocktail hour is 4-6 p.m. with great vintage cocktail specials and ½ off appetizers daily.
Certain nights we feature live jazz or piano playing vintage favorites.
In summer the Inn hosts a different artist each week, and Bay View’s concert series are within walking distance and Crooked Tree Art Center has entertainment year round for guests visiting in our quieter seasons.
The Terrace Inn was built in 1910 and opened June 25, 1911. It is the second Terrace Inn, the first having been torn down along with two cottages. William DeVol and his wife Josephine owned and operated the Inn for several decades.
