Welcome to The Oviatt House
Welcome to The Oviatt House in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan! Your inn keeper is Franny Oviatt Bluhm, active in the local area as a naturalist. At our home, we invite you to meander our gardens, made for your enjoyment and shared with the songbirds and an occasional hawk. Relax with a book inside near the fireplace or play a game of cards with your friends in our sitting room. There is so much to do in our town, you may not find much time to stay home!
Without setting foot back into your car, you can spend a day at Clinch Park- a family friendly beach complete with volleyball nets, a zero depth waterpark for the little ones, paddleboard rentals and access to the refreshing water of Grand Traverse Bay. Spend the evening downtown, a short 5 minute walk from the bed and breakfast, at Little Fleet- a collection of food trucks, or at one of the local restaurants reknowned for their food and atmosphere.
If you are looking for something more, try a wine tasting tour, brewery tour, or test your endurance on the dune climb at Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. We can provide you with information about local outings. We love and are proud of beautiful Traverse City, and enjoy sharing it with our guests.
