Our stay at Country Hermitage was nothing short of perfect. You honestly get what you are expecting - there are no false advertising issues with this place. It's ideal! I had just finished taking the bar exam wednesday, and my boyfriend and I planned this weekend trip away so I could get back to "normal." It had everything I wanted and needed to relax again.
First, Carl and Lisa (the innkeepers) are amazing. They are so welcoming and want to give you everything they can so you enjoy your stay, including tips about the best things to do around town. Carl makes the most wonderful breakfasts - he puts so much thought into each one and they are truly the best part of staying at this place. They have beer, wine, pop, popcorn out for the guests each day, and Lisa bakes a treat in the afternoons and leaves it out. It's very nice to come back to after a day out in traverse city.
This home is located on a beautiful cherry farm. You can walk the farm and pick tart cherries at any time, and it is truly beautiful. The backyard of the home is kept in tip-top shape - beautiful landscaping and a small pond for catch-and release fishing, a hammock and a few chairs; It was perfect to sit outside and read in the morning or the evening. Even better - there is a fire pit in the back for bonfires at night. And it is all set up for you each day, you only need to light the fire.
Finally, our room was the perfect size for a 3 day stay (Amon Room), they provide everything a hotel would including the mini hotel sized shampoos, conditioners and soaps. They provide a housekeeping service each day should you want it.
This is 100 times better than staying in a hotel if you are looking for a way to relax in TC!
