A Historic 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, located in Bay View, Petoskey, Michigan. A group of Methodists from Jackson, Michigan chose Bay View for a tent camp in 1875 and the Victorian cottages see today were built by the 1880's. established in 1875 by a group of Methodists from Jackson, Michigan.

Hotel amenities in 1911 touted 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 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 allows guests to experience the area in fall and winter months.


Cozy Rooms

Currently: The Inn's 38 rooms range from cozy "Cottage style" with 1 Queen or 2 Twin Beds and private bath with shower, to more spacious Suites with King Beds and jetted tubs. Each is uniquely decorated with a mix of vintage furnishings and modern amenities. "Terrace Inn is the perfect combination of a bed and breakfast and historic hotel. Each cozy room is decorated differently. All are homey, quiet, and very clean. The owners and staff are always helpful, and breakfast is a delight in the comfortable dining room."

"We booked the Terrace Inn for a family get-together, and didn't know what to expect. The place was lovely, and the staff outstanding. The first night we arrived late, but Moe offered to open the bar for us, so we had some nice cool Michigan wine on the patio. The breakfasts are great, and we can't say enough about the place. We would definitely stay here again!"

Great experience-beautiful Inn!


"The woodwork and architecture are pretty much unchanged and helped give the turn of the century inn a very comfortable and relaxing feel. We requested an ice bucket prior to our arrival. The desk clerk asked us at check in when we would want the ice bucket and had it ready for us as we moved our luggage in from the car. The breakfast on the veranda was very pleasant and the staff was attentive without hovering. The mid-week rate was very affordable and we will probably return in the future to enjoy the inn and the city of Petoskey that we have so much loved over the last 30 years during my parents retirement. For those that understand, this is our “One Particular Harbor”
