Stafford’s Bay View Inn
Our flagship property, Stafford's Bay View Inn, offers guests the grace and romance of a bygone era, set against the exquisite views of Little Traverse Bay. This charming country Inn was built in 1886 and has enchanted visitors for over 125 years.
Some of northern Michigan's finest dining can be experienced in the Roselawn Dining Room. Cool relaxing evenings on the Reed Avenue Porch make for unforgettable memories.
For over 50 years, Stafford Smith and his family have owned, operated and lovingly restored this grand Victorian country Inn on the shores of Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay. It is a place to pause, reflect and unwind. We invite you to experience the charm and hospitality of this unique country Inn and the unparalleled service that only Stafford's can provide.
