We are in the process of restructuring the Neahtawanta Inn operations.
We are currently not taking reservations for 2017.
Neahtawanta Community Supported Inn
After being open to the public as a bed & breakfast for the past 36 years, the Neahtawanta Inn is shifting to a collaborative model, which will be membership based. Members will be able to choose their level of membership with pricing structure and different benefits that will allow for both individual and group needs. There will also be room rates in addition to the membership, with discounts for top tier members.
The purpose of this shift is to build a stronger community atmosphere, increase a sense of belonging and investment in the greater vision of the Inn, and to share some of the day-to-day tasks to lighten the load on the old innkeeper!
The new entity, which we are calling the Neahtawanta Community Supported Inn, will host year round events and activities for members, such as special dinners, kayaking, skills-based workshops, bike tours, full moon celebrations and more!
The Neahtawanta Research and Education Center (NREC)
, which has been our educational/advocacy arm of our work here since 1987, and is a nonprofit organization housed at the Inn, will remain the same. www.nrec.org
If you would like more information about the new Neahtawanta Inn, please email. The goal is to launch the new system sometime in February. Watch for updates!

The Neahtawanta Inn
(Nee-ah-ta-wan-ta) is a bed and breakfast located on Old Mission Peninsula, a 22 mile long finger of land that divides Grand Traverse Bay into East and West Bay (satellite image
), with over 300 feet of beach front on Bowers Harbor. Cherry orchards and wineries dominate the landscape; the 8 wineries
are open for touring and tasting. The Lighthouse is now open to the public at Old Mission Point Park. The park also has many nice trails (trail map
The Neahtawanta Inn provides
both solitude and interaction depending upon your needs. The Inn is used by individuals and groups for a variety of reasons: as a quiet respite from busy lives; for family reunions, small group retreats, honeymoons and anniversaries; or for vacationers coming to enjoy the Grand Traverse area. Surrounded by woods and water, the Inn offers peace and comfort for those who need to rest and rejuvenate. The large living/dining room with a sunken fieldstone firepit, and library with many books and periodicals are available for our guests. Healthy vegetarian breakfasts
are served with many local ingredients. In 1996 a wheelchair accessible room
was added, along with a second floor yoga studio
We are a family place and welcome children of all ages. (Many bed and breakfast inns discourage guests with children because of the disruption they can cause.) We ask that parents be conscious of their children's behavior regarding other guests. It is especially important for children to be quiet between the hours of 9 p.m. and 10 a.m.
