We have been patiently waiting for a building permit and are happy to say that we now have it and are moving ahead, full tilt, with the rebuilding due to a fire on February 3rd. We plan to replace the areas that were damaged with some improvements here and there. You will still find the old fashioned charm and much of the Inn was not damaged.
We are accepting reservations beginning in early July. Check our availability if you'd like to come for a visit!

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.
The Neahtawanata Center, a nonprofit organization working on peace, justice and ecological health issues, is also housed at the Inn.
