Great place for petoskey rocks! Ltyson, Trip Advisor
The area was well maintained. The beach front has several rocks on the shoreline for the treasure hunters out there looking for petosky rocks.
A day at the beach. Matt D, Trip Advisor
Beautiful view of little traverse Bay. Get there early to pick out your spot and set up your chairs and blankets. We arrived at 10:30 a.m. and beat the rush. By noon the beach was pretty well packed. Lots of rock hunting and dune climbing for the kids. Water was warm enough to swim in. There were lots of people in the water. Water was crystal clear in the morning then got turned up as the wind kicked up during the day. Bathrooms and concession stand were welcomed for a long afternoon.
Beautiful Beach! loongirl, Trip Advisor
Stopped in for a quick beach walk on a hot day. This State Park has a gorgeous beach, with plenty of close parking. There are also picnic areas and camping areas too. I just wanted to stick my toes in the sand, and it was a perfect visit.
Romantic get away
The Terrace Inn is quite a nicely restored Inn. The staff is very accommodating. It is quiet and enjoyable and relaxing. I highly recommend a visit there. The surrounding Victorian homes are delightful to view and enjoy.
While I have visited the Petoskey area many times and stayed in several other places, this was the first time I along with a neighboring couple, had stayed at the Terrace, dined in the 1911 Restaurant and really wandered through Bay View. All was up to expectations even if the rooms in this historic property are on the small side. The restaurant was top notch and the staff could not have been more accommodating. And after much of the summer to adapt to making visitors feel safe in the era of Covid-19, the protocols were strictly enforced and yet seemed natura
very cozy place, located in a quiet and nice neighborhood. Staff is very welcoming, helpful and nice. Food is delicious. Indeed a great option not far from man location that you can reach in a short drive. it is really a hotel I will be back and stay again.
I just returned from a weekend Yoga retreat at the Terrace Inn with renouned Yoga instructor, Cindy Gray. The Inn is filled with charm and character and turned out to be a great place to practice Yoga. The owners, Patty and Mo, welcomed us like family. There are several lounge areas to sit and read or simply relax. The Inn is situated in the middle of the 100+ year old Victorian Bay View neighborhood and is 2 blocks from Lake Michigan and there are many parks in the area. It's a great place to walk, run or cross country ski or just sit on the porch take in the view. The food was excellent. The Chicken Hemingway and potato leak soup can't be beat.
I love this Inn, I love the area, and I will return. However, I will not stay in Room #211. I stayed alone in the room and had a hair-raising experience with one of the paranormal inhabitants. I was told later that a lot of the paranormal activity takes place in this room and in this wing of the building, mostly on the 2nd and 3rd floors. I have chills just typing about it. There are many people who enjoy this type of thrill.
