Location, location, location. Don't be fooled by the look of the street, you are blocks from downtown Traverse City, walking distance to most everything. This is a small, old house; very clean, comfortable and quiet. There is plenty of parking, not common in this area. But those are not this B&B's best features. It's Franny. She is a wonderful cook, breakfasts were amazing! I have food allergies and she took special care to make sure I was safe and in fact, made a casserole with me in mind that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Franny engaged every visitor, asking what their plans were for the day, giving them tips, maps, and helpful suggestions. We were a diverse group and she met everyone's needs. Have one of the complimentary local wines or beers she provides and lift a toast to a great hostess.
