It helps to know what you are getting into.....this is a very old bldg. and so maintenance is a challenge. Since we stayed there the last time, room AC's have been added. And the furnishings have improved. The style is Victorian so expect flowery wall paper and carpets, lacy curtains, etc. No elevator so you have to schlep luggage up to 2nd or 3rd floor. It is in a lovely neighborhood( old Methodist summer camp) and convenient to Petoskey.
The most disappointing thing was the breakfast: weak coffee, and the strangest tasting bagels and cream cheese, bad sausage, etc.
Staff was pleasant but did not give out much info.
