Antiquities’ Wellington Inn located in Downtown Traverse City

is a 1905 neo-classical mansion that has been transformed into a small elegant hotel and is located in Northern Michigan in the historic heart of Traverse City. Built by one of Traverse City’s lumber barons, this spectacular mansion has been fully restored to its original grandeur and features period antiques throughout the hotels’ nine guest rooms, dining room, library and living room.

Each morning guests at Wellington Inn Bed and Breakfast are treated to a sumptuous full breakfast in the turn-of-the-century dining room. Refreshments and snacks are always available in the guest kitchen located off the 3rd-floor ballroom.

If planning an extended visit to Northern Michigan, the two 2-bedroom Carriage House apartments provide guests with a home away from home, allowing a leisurely multi-day exploration of Traverse City and the surrounding region.
