Welcome to Stafford’s Bay View Inn

DSC_1853Welcome to the oldest hotel north of Grand Rapids! For 130 years, the Bay View Inn has proudly stood on US Highway 31, overlooking Little Traverse Bay welcoming visitors to the crown jewel of Michigan’s “Gold Coast”. We invite you to join in the heritage of hospitality that we continue to practice every day for every guest.

Guests at Stafford’s Bay View Inn enjoy the unique décor in each of our 31 guest rooms, and of course the breathtaking vistas that first gave inspiration to the expression “Million Dollar Sunset” for which Petoskey is now famous. In addition to the perfect setting for respite and relaxation we hope that you will enjoy the fine cuisine of the Roselawn Dining Room. Our Sunday Brunch (seasonal) is sure to please every palette.

The staff and I stand ready to welcome you to the Inn for the first time, and what we hope will be many return visits up north, for Stafford’s brand of “Pure Michigan” hospitality. If there is anything we can do to make your visit with us more enjoyable, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
Best Wishes,

Corey Ernst
Innkeeper
