“such a delightful place”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

My husband I spent one night here with some friends and we had such an enjoyable stay. Melinda and David are two wonderful people who made us feel so at home, welcome and as though we'd known each other for years! The b&b is so elegantly set up, the rooms are very comfy, spotlessly clean and cosy. Breakfast is so delicious and abundant - they're great cooks! The whole place has such a relaxing feeling about it, and they made some great food suggestions for us which were perfect. We all really hope to visit again as it has left us with great memories, thank you very much Melinda and David!

Recently I was in Traverse City to look at a piece of property that I was considering purchasing. I booked a room at Aberdeen Stone Cottage because it was within walking distance of this property (I am not usually a "B and B type person"). Boy howdy was I suprised at how comfortable the Celtic Garden room was and how truly gracious Melinda and David were. It was crappy weather and it was so warming to have nice people send me out with a good breakfast in my belly and a roomy private room when I got back from trudging around in the rain.

This was our first visit to traverse city to spend holidays with some friends who live nearby. From the moment we walked it felt like we were home. Inn keepers Melinda and David feel like old friends - they could not do more to make us feel comfortable and part of the family. They were informative, warm and attentive without being at all intrusive. And every recommendation - from restaurants to activities - we're perfect. We stayed in the Heather room which was ideal to share with our 13 year old son. He enjoyed the special tea and treats and we all found the breakfasts remarkable. And add to our experience, the fellow guests were also so engaging. We plan to visit often - every season!

Aberdeen Stone Cottage is an adorable and exceedingly pleasant home away from home. From the moment you are greeted at the door by the very friendly and professional innkeepers, you somehow feel as if you have walked into your best friend's living room. Hospitality clearly comes naturally to Melinda and David, as they effortlessly make you feel at home and are also quite knowledgeable about local events, restaurants, walking trails, local shops, wineries, etc. The rooms are very well appointed, and one even has its own quaint garden! In addition to the main living room, there is a little seating area on the second floor complete with mini fridge, coffee and tea making facilities, and a basket of snacks. The gourmet breakfasts are scrumptious and plentiful and the coffee is amazing. It is just steps from the lake and an easy walk to town. I definitely recommend it, and will be coming back often.

Room Tip: Celtic Garden room on main floor has its on ensuite and private garden. Thistle and Heather rooms u...
