A Romantic Bed and Breakfast in Traverse City

If you’re looking for the best romantic getaway in Michigan – or maybe even the Midwest – you’ve found it! Our Bed and Breakfast in Traverse City is an exquisite full-service destination offering comfortable guest rooms, fantastic wine-tasting experiences, an outstanding restaurant, plenty of onsite activities, and easy access to some of the top things to do in the Traverse City area.

Technically, Black Star Farms isn’t in Traverse City – but don’t let that be a deterrent. We’re located just 13 miles outside of the downtown area on the Leelanau Peninsula, so we’re close enough to enjoy anything you may want to see or do in the city but far enough away from the hustle and bustle for you to feel like you’ve truly found a secluded and romantic retreat. From our Bed and Breakfast in Traverse City, it’s easy for you to enjoy the best of this area.

Whether you’re a novice, experienced wine enthusiast, or looking for fun adventures outdoors, this is the perfect place to serve as your home base. We offer a little bit of everything for our guests, including opportunities to enjoy onsite hiking (and snowshoeing), yoga, cooking classes, wine and food-related workshops, and so much more. We also have curated several packages for our guests to help them enjoy the best of this area, including seasonal activities and adventures like sailing on the bay, biking (winter and fair weather!), and more.

Our Bed and Breakfast in Traverse City features ten well-appointed guest rooms, each outfitted with various amenities. We’ll have a complimentary bottle of our house wine waiting for you in your guest room, too – an exceptional way to start your romantic getaway!

Once you’ve settled into your room and let your stress and worries melt away, we invite you to join us for wine tasting in our onsite tasting room. Black Star Farms is one of the leading wineries in Michigan and a great place to launch your tasting adventure on the Leelanau Peninsula. We have several indoor tasting areas to enjoy our wines, and later in the year, when the weather improves, we also have a gorgeous seasonal terrace.

Another perk to choosing our Bed and Breakfast in Traverse City as your romantic destination this winter is the opportunity to dine at Bistro Polaris, considered by many to be a fantastic choice among Traverse City restaurants! The ambiance of the Bistro is casual, but the food is exceptional, fresh, and reflective of the agriculturally rich area we’re surrounded by. You can enhance your getaway further by joining us for one of our signature Arcturos Dining Series events, highlighting the sensational marriage of food and wine on the Leelanau Peninsula.
