The Manitou Floating Bed & Breakfast

“A True Adventure”

If you are looking for a unique and memorable way to experience Traverse City, consider our floating bed & breakfast.


Fresh air and starry nights abound from the decks of one of the largest traditional sailing vessels on the Great Lakes. You’ll experience one of the best vantage points on West Grand Traverse Bay. Join us on board for an adventurous overnight secured at our pier and a hearty homemade full breakfast cooked on our wood burning stove in the morning.

We did the bed and breakfast package with our four kids. It was incredible. The experience was something we will all remember. The crew was attentive, educated and interesting to converse with. They were able to include the kids, ages 9-16, in different activities, including a moonlight game on deck of Go Fish! Breakfast was incredible, French toast, scrambled eggs, homemade pastries. Great operation all around. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!

The Tall Ship Manitou Bed and Breakfast was the highlight of our tip around Lake Michigan. Our stay included a two hour evening sail (complete with dinner and live entertainment), overnight on board and a gourmet breakfast with the crew. The crew was knowledgeable, welcoming and always available. I was traveling with my teenage granddaughter and we had a blast!
