Eric and Misty were welcoming, gracious and very hospitable hosts. Chef Eric prepared amazing breakfasts that were not only beautifully presented but delicious as well. Misty and Eric shared interesting stories about the history of the property and surrounding area. Our room was comfy, cozy and clean. Loved the fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Wine tour bus picked us up so NO driving required. We will definitely stay here again!

Property's Favorite Review
Incredible stay. I booked with Eric and Misty for a trip where I was planning to propose to my girlfriend. Misty was very patient with me as our plans fluxed back and forth, but accommodated everything exactly right. When we arrived, it was golden hour and the sun shone a light on the property that was straight out of an oil painting. Everything was absolutely picturesque, we even dedicated one of our nights to just sitting on the deck and by the fire. I wasn't planning to propose until the next day, so Eric and Misty helped me check in and then put out the romance package (champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, etc.) during the day while we were out the next day so it would be waiting for us when we returned. They were even so thoughtful as to go out and buy us an extra pack of sparkling ciders as a lovely gesture and gift. Aside from all the custom attention we were getting, the amenities they provide are top notch. Eric is a master of his culinary craft and has prepared some amazing and innovative breakfasts that we will be talking about for a long time. And, as some other B&Bs are rather strict about their Breakfast policies, Eric and Misty were completely accommodating of our schedules and appetites. I can not recommend staying here enough. It is a lovely taste of a beautiful old home, amazing nature and scenery, delicious food, and downright pleasant hospitality. We will be seeing you again!

Misty and Eric are welcoming and kind! The rooms are immaculate and potential needs are anticipated. I enjoyed a warm bath with lavender bath salts after taking a refreshing walk among the cherry orchards. Even had a quiet place to feed the fish in the pond (fish food was conveniently provided). Breakfast each morning was so delicious - Chef Eric insisted that it was healthy, too. My husband and I were in town for a work convention. Staying at the Country Hermitage instead of the Resort was more relaxing and refreshing than past trips when we stayed at the Resort. Different experiences, both with pros to consider. Definitely am glad that we tried a new approach and definitely will return.

The house was beautiful and the history of the house and the couple running it were fantastic. Rooms were very comfortable and well kept, the property itself was stunning, we wish we had more time to explore it. The couple running the B&B (Eric and Misty) were amazing, they were informative, pleasant and knew the area and the history of the house and family. We would highly recommend and definitely stay agin when in the area.

This is an amazing property. You feel like you are family and you are home. The property is immaculately kept and Eric makes the best breakfast - hands down. Both Misty and Eric are so friendly and go way above and beyond to make you feel welcome and special. Things that made our stay special - always having freshly baked cookies available in the afternoon, access to their small kitchenette fridge so we could keep some items cold for a beach picnic, suggestions and recommendations on where to eat, best beaches, and things to do. But I mostly appreciated all the wonderful conversations with Misty and Eric. The are genuinely caring individuals and put up with my thousands of questions on running a cherry tree orchard and farming. We have stayed here twice, once a few years before Covid and in August 2023. We are already planning another visit next summer. If you want a place that is relaxing, welcoming, charming, and just a bit out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Traverse City - do not miss your chance of staying here.

Outstanding B&B in a wonderful location. Eric & Misty were awesome hosts and the home and rooms are bathed in history. Outdoor views are gorgeous, surrounded by cherry orchards. Eric is a master chef and his breakfasts were best we've ever had. We would absolutely recommend this B&B and plan to stay again when we return.

I surprised my husband for his birthday by bringing him here. Misty and Eric were incredible hosts and were friendly and easy to work with. Eric is a fantastic cook and made an incredible birthday breakfast (complete with a candle) for my husband. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The property is expansive and nice to walk around. I highly recommend booking here.

This was a great place to stay. Eric and Misty are great hosts. The room was very nice and the surrounding property was exquisitely maintained. From the fish pond where you can feed the catfish and bass to the beautiful garden, surrounding cherry orchards, small brook, and lush lawn. We enjoyed the wrap around deck where you can enjoy the beautiful weather. The breakfasts were excellent, and ample enough to have us skip lunch every day. Eric & Misty provided suggestions on things to do and places to eat dinner.

Our visit was everything I thought it would be and more. Misty and Eric greeted us upon arrival and were friendly and welcoming. Our room was exactly as pictured online. This is an historic home, so while our room was small, it was charming and spotless. I was worried about the room being hot in July, but we were cool and comfortable. Besides the tasty homemade cookies each day, Chef Eric prepares a delightful plated breakfast every morning which we chose to eat outside on the large deck with panoramic views of the lawn, garden and surrounding organic cherry orchard. Misty and Eric have thought of every thing a guest might want including a beverage stocked refrigerator (locally brewed beer, water and sodas), lawn games, ice, gorgeous grounds and a level of local knowledge one only gets from a native. We loved our stay.

My partner and I were in the Traverse City area for a wedding and, based on a recommendation from the bride, booked three nights at Country Hermitage B&B. Misty and Eric were everything you could hope for in terms of hospitable, friendly and detail-oriented hosts. The room was immaculate and well outfitted, including a jetted tub. Eric prepared amazing breakfasts and put out delicious sweets in the afternoon for weary guests. The location is in cherry orchard country. We had our breakfast served to us on the rear deck and enjoyed the splendid views of the orchards. Really, I can’t say enough good things about our stay and I should know. I owned a B&B for 18 years. We’ll certainly return when we visit TC in the future.
