and 1911 restaurant
"The Terrace Inn is a fantastic throwback to a bygone era. This is a traditional Inn, circa 1911 and strives to stay that way.
The restaurant is festooned with crystal chandeliers set above a fine polished hardwood dining room. The "terrace" which sits above the BayView campus is an ideal place for a lovely mid-summer outdoor dining experience.
You'll likely enjoy some live classical guitar as you dine and be tempted by a menu that regularly highlights dishes your ancestors would have enjoyed during a trip to northern Michigan when steam powered vessels ruled the day.
Planked whitefish is their signature dish and for good reason, it's delicious and won't leave you hungry. They feature a very reasonable three course prix fixe menu where you can essentially order anything off their menu.
Most wouldn't call the Terrace Inn fancy, but their is a nostalgic elegance to it that might make you walk just a touch slower, breathe a bit deeper and catch a glimpse of what life was like before it was plugged in."
The Terrace Inn
Perfect Blend of Nostalgia and Hospitality
"We live in NH, and my son was getting married in Bay Harbor, MI. We were looking for a place to stay for a week or so and also a facility to host a rehearsal dinner for 65 people. The Terrace Inn & 1911 Restaurant fit the bill perfectly. My wife began several months in advance making arrangements with the Hotel staff regarding the venue and the front desk Manager, Belinda, made the entire process effortless...very accommodating, efficient, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with. The hotel has all the quaintness and charm of a B&B except on a much grander scale while introducing all the modern conveniences necessary to make our stay memorable. The rehearsal dinner was fantastic...the food was over the top!!! The 1911 Restaurant has a very extensive menu and we chose the Chicken Hemmingway and the Planked Whitefish. Nothing but compliments from our guests the entire evening. The owner, Mo, and his wife Patti, are on site owners and are very involved with every aspect of the restaurant. They are extremely accommodating and go out of their way to insure that our dining experience was nothing short of outstanding!
