Stafford's Bay View Inn, Petoskey
Outstanding5.0 / 5
Stafford's Bay View Inn is charming and historic.
We were looking for a getaway for my husband's birthday. I love the ambience of a country inn with great local history. The staff is totally accommodating and the restaurant was wonderful for its complimentary breakfast from the full menu and elegant dinners, featuring local fresh fish and a pie of the day.

Fair2.0 / 5
Had no lights in room for awhile, understand things happen, then ran out of hot water before wife got done with shower, needless to say I got no shower that night. We received a small discount. I could of had hot water at a lot less expense at another hotel. Very disappointed!

Beautiful and Genteel
My wife and I were touring northern Michigan, our home state, for our honeymoon. We came across this gem on I had heard of it and the Stafford chain,so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed! The service at the Bayview is outstanding! The food is topnotch, especially the cookies they leave in the rooms. Our room was beautiful, harking back to a time of gentility and grace. We were lucky to have a room with a balcony overlooking Little Traverse Bay and its stunning sunsets. We will stay at Stafford's Bayview Inn again.

Stafford Inn
This lovely little inn harkens back to yesteryear. Situated right on the bay the views are beautiful. The front porch of the inn or the adirondack chairs on the lawn invite you to just sit and relax. The hotel decor is dated, but that is part of its charm. It was established in 1869. The service and food was wonderful and I would definitely return.
