Visit some of the best-kept secrets of the Traverse region!
There are so many beautiful places to stay in northern Michigan. Hotels, Air b n bs, Vacation rentals by owners, your friend’s house, campgrounds, and Bed and Breakfasts / Inns. We are partial to the small quaint Bed and Breakfasts and Inns. They each have a uniqueness to them celebrating the area they are located in. The Innkeepers / Owners put their heart and soul into every aspect of your stay. And you will get more than any “super host” experience you’ve gotten any OTA’s.
So, we put together a tour to show you some of the area’s best-kept secrets. Below we list the participating properties, where they are located, and how to get there! No need to call. The entire property may or may not be available to tour based on occupancy levels. Enjoy!
