The saying "Up North" seems to create an image and a feeling for each of us, no matter where we live. Although our definitions would surely differ to some degree, we believe we all share some version of the More same vision that starts with a genuine..."Ahhhhh!" Please join us for a memorable stay at our quaint, cozy inn on the shores of beautiful East Grand Traverse Bay where the crystal clear water is sure to take your breath away! Visit our newly renovated "Cottage Inn" offering "Classic Ambiance & Traditional Service". Be Delighted! Less
