Welcome

Step into an era of unparalleled graciousness at Stafford's Bay View Inn. The staff of this wonderful Petoskey Michigan bed and breakfast will graciously treat you to attentive service, country inn dining, and elegant accommodations in a relaxed and historic setting.

Let the Bay View Inn be your host as you visit the historic landmarks, casinos, shopping districts, and natural wonders in this Land of the Million Dollar Sunset. We are proud of our Little Traverse Bay and Straits of Mackinac areas and are eager to share them with you. Stafford's Bay View Inn is just a short drive from the most popular Northern Michigan attractions, such as Mackinac Island and the glorious Upper Peninsula. You and your guests can tour the area's scenic and historic gems, or enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, then return to the Inn or to one of the other Stafford's Hospitality properties for a relaxing dinner overlooking a tranquil waterfront setting.  No other Bed and Breakfast in Michigan has the charm and history that Stafford Bay View Inn does.

We look forward to treating you and your guests to the grace and tranquility of the Victorian Era. We have lovingly restored our inn to reflect that period style and are continuously upgrading our amenities and services. So, pull up a porch rocker and relax. Take a deep breath and inhale the fresh westerly breezes drifting up from Little Traverse Bay. At Stafford's Bay View Inn you will find the finest ingredients for true re-creation: four seasons on unsurpassed natural beauty, fascinating historical points of interest, and staff who take pride to ensure that you go home refreshed, with a smile on your face. Let Stafford's Bay View Inn turn your dreams into wonderful memories.
