The Terrace Inn
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 electricity was turned off at sun down and "late stay-uppers" took kerosene lamps to their room. Today the Inn has a sprinkler system throughout and updated mechanicals so guests can enjoy a worry-free stay! Bay View Association programs and resident cottages are open May to November. The exception is the administrative offices and hotels. This ensures the integrity of the programs and allows guests to experience the area in fall and winter months.
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. Please note that room numbers start with 100 (main floor)
200 (second floor) and 300 (third floor)
Q means 1 Queen bed K means 1 King bed and T means 2 Twin beds
