     Welcome to Applesauce Inn Bed & Breakfast!  2013awardswinner150

A Four Season Country Farmhouse

Our vintage country farmhouse Bed & Breakfast is just a stone’s throw from beautiful Torch Lake and is centrally located in the beautiful Chain of Lakes region: a seventy-five mile-long waterway consisting of fourteen lakes and connecting rivers, in Northwestern Michigan.
Summer is here….time to getway!  Hiking, biking, kayaking, relaxing!!  Think golf!!  Shanty Creek has 4 courses, and we are just 5 minutes from each resort.  Experience the hiking trails within the Grass River Natural Area, or mountain bike riding at the newly created Glacial Hills Pathway and Natural area in Bellaire.  Need to rent a bike or a kayak?  We highly recommend the great folks at Paddles & Pedals in downtown Bellaire!  Mention your stay with us for a discount!
Summer and Fall is a great time to experience our amazing wineries in the region!  We are only 35 minutes from the Leelanau Peninsula and Old Mission Wineries!  Prefer to spend the day shopping, enjoying local restaurants, coffee shops or book stores?  Then Traverse City is your destination, and we are just a short 30 minute drive from downtown Front St.  Looking for a great day trip?  Mackinac Island is just an hour and half drive to the north, and the Sleeping Bear Dunes is 45 minutes to the South!
Whether you are looking for an active outdoor weekend, week long vacation filled with amazing day trips, or an intimate getaway, we have what you need.  Make the most of your Michigan getaway vacation, and consider the Applesauce Inn Bed and Breakfast as your home away from home.
Great each morning with our amazing scratch made breakfasts that feature seasonal and local ingredients (including eggs from our own chickens and garden produce from our back yard).  They have become something of a legend that you surely do not want to miss!  Come home each evening to a home made dessert and a glass of Traverse City local wine or locally made Bee Well Ciders (May-Oct).
Our commitment to you is that whether you have stayed in a bed and breakfast before or not, you will be comfortable here, you will leave relaxed and you will be making plans to return!
We look forward to welcoming you into our home~
Gary and Jamie~your Innkeepers
