The Hostess made it special
Posted Sep 19, 2014 on Hotels
I'm not much of a B & B kind of guy, but my wife likes them. While planning our 1st anniversary weekend, I kept seeing Yorkburg Manor in the listings, but kept scrolling by it. I am so glad that I finally decided to take a closer look. I noticed that there were many reviews of satisfied customers, so I decided to go for it and booked a weekend. As soon as we drove up, I knew my wife was hooked. When Judy, our hostess, opened the door and gave us the brief tour and history of the home, I was hooked. It was obvious that she truly loved it and sharing it with others. We learned of the original family who owned it and how Judy and her husband John had moved it several miles from it's original location and spent countless hours on its restoration. Later, we sat and read a hardcover book that she had published about the adventure. On Saturday and Sunday, we wandered down to the kitchen where she had breakfast foods to eat and great conversation. She made us feel as though it were really our home too. If you appreciate the B & B experience and are in the Traverse City, MI area, I highly recommend this one. We will be going back again.
