“Beautiful B&B in a Country Setting”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

While traveling to Traverse City for the weekend, we stumble upon this beautiful B&B. We stop and knock on the door. Judy (the owner), greets us with a smile and welcomes us inside this country manor. She gives us a tour and a brief history about the house. The B&B has four guest rooms. We stay the night in the Fireplace Room. This second floor room has a queen-size bed and a private bath with a claw-foot tub. The bed is comfortable and the sheets and towels are soft to the touch. The third floor has a pool table, chairs for reading, games, and a TV with a VCR. Fun things can be found throughout the house (old telephones, dolls, antique light switches). Hardwood floors, lace curtains, and battery-operated candles sitting on the window sills enhance the atmosphere of a by-gone era while modern conveniences (like A/C and ceiling fans) keep things comfortable. Snacks and beverages are available anytime. In the morning, the self-serve continental breakfast is a light and casual meal. We thoroughly enjoyed sipping morning coffee on the wooden glider. This is definitely a place to return to again and again.

My wife and I stayed at our first bed and breakfast, after 14 years of marriage, and we were really impressed with so many things at this home. The rooms were clean, and neatly decorated to fit the whole entire home. The service was outstanding! The innkeeper was very nice and welcoming during our two day stay at the home, especially during the Iceman Cometh race knowing that we were going to be coming back to the home a little cold, muddy and wet from the 30 mile mountain bike race. For that, we thank you for your service and hospitality.

We don't have any experience staying with any other bed and breakfast homes, so we thought that our lodging expenses were at a great value. Pricing out the local hotels, and comparing them to this home were not much different, and I wouldn't trade the quality location, rooms and wonderful service by the innkeeper for a casino or hotel and resort facility.

The innkeeper served a wonderful breakfast buffet of items to the guest, including some wonder scones from the local bakery. Wow, those were good, and I ate a majority of them when the other guests were out of the kitchen enjoying the nice fireplace!

We will plan on staying again at Yorkburg Manor, and would recommend that bed and breakfast to anyone traveling to the Traverse City, Michigan.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great. We had friends staying with us, and they were really pleased with the o...

We had a jam-packed two days. It started with a tour of the Manor, Judy is an excellent hostess.
The Manor is warm and full of history. The rooms are up to date with the latest in comfort. We had a late dinner, in nearby Traverse City and then to our comfortable room and bed. My Husband was to be up early to run the Bay Shore Marathon, the next morning. After the Maraton, we returned he showered, I relaxed in the Garden Room which has a breezeway where I had a view of the garden with the wild turkeys feasting at the feeders. We then went for a short hike in the Sand Lakes Quiet Area. We did some touristing around Traverse City and then did a drive around the peninsula of the wineries. After dinner, we returned to the Manor and noticed large candy dishes of chocolates, how welcoming. Before bed, I was able to enjoy, the book, that Judy put together about history of the house, while I watched the Red Wings Game on TV, in the billiard room. The Home is warm-hearted, quiet, comfortable and cozy.

We stayed four nights and had a great time. Judy and John are very warm and friendly. It was fun hearing about the history of the house and all the rooms are beautifully renovated. It is easy to find and the location was great for touring the area.

We stayed in the Roger/Dennis room with the fireplace and own bathroom, it had a large entry area that had a large closet and sink area, with the claw foot tub and toilet just off that behind a door. Some toiletries provided, bath beads for the tub, etc. The home is much more warm and inviting than the on-line pictures give it. The woodwork in this home is amazing and the hard work and love is evident. The previous owners (original family) history is kept alive throughout this home in pictures and other finds, which adds to it's homey feel. Decorated in antiques, not so much that is cluttered or unusable. Immaculately clean. There are lots of spots to get cozy with a good book or special someone. The 3rd floor has a large space for games/puzzles/pool/reading or just gathering if you stay with family/friends. We were the only guests on the particular night we were there, so had the place to ourselves. They (John and Judy) do not cook breakfast, but provide fresh brewed coffee and other beverages, toast, cereals, bagels, english muffins, pastry, fresh fruit and good company. A 'Help yourself' kind of kitchen. Which is all we need. It is very close to the Turtle Creek Casino, Traverse City area. Great stay.
