Capture the grace and elegance of a bygone era and make your wedding a truly landmark event.

The Stafford's sales team is happy to provide you an all-inclusive event encompassing your rehearsal dinner, lodging accommodations, ceremony, reception and post-wedding brunch or farewell. Every detail will be tended to by our sales associates and our promise to you is a fairy tale wedding that is limited only by your own imagination.

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 120 years. Located in the historic association of Bay View, the Inn can be rented in its entirety, or in part, for special events and conferences.

Perched high on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, Stafford's Perry Hotel stands as a proud symbol of the early 1900s when northern Michigan tourism was in its infancy. The Perry's unique event atmosphere and convenient downtown location provide a lively alternative to sprawling, remote resorts common to northern Michigan.

Nestled in Alanson, on the picturesque Crooked River on the historic Inland Waterway is Stafford's Crooked River Lodge & Suites.  Built in 2004, the Lodge is your gateway to all things north! Guests enjoy our spacious guest rooms and suites most with a private balcony, an indoor pool and hot tub, a continental breakfast with each stay and beautiful views of the Crooked River.

We invite you to experience Stafford's signature hospitality, where yesterday and today come together.
