The Terrace Inn was built in 1910 and opened June 25, 1911. The Inn is a Michigan Historic Landmark and a member of Bay View Association, established 1875. The first Terrace Inn was a smaller Victorian style building which emulated the other Bay View cottages. After a fire, the building was removed and the current hotel built in its place. Amenities at that time were indoor plumbing, "hot food served hot and cold food served cold", electricity and call bells. Early documents stated that the electricity was turned off at sun down and "late stay-uppers" took kerosene lamps to their room. This may be the case why so many hotels of the era had fires, thus leaving two in operation in Bay View, the Terrace Inn and Staffords Bay View Inn.
The Terrace Inn has 38 rooms, ranging from cozy “cottage” rooms, our most authentic and affordable to King Whirlpool suites with kitchenettes. There is one pet friendly suite in the former tea room downstairs. Our 4 story historic hotel does not have an elevator, but we happily help with your luggage. Modern for its time, the Inn advertised "electric call bells, indoor plumbing and "hot food served hot and cold food served cold!"
