  • Introduction

    Cedar Creek Bed & Breakfast front

    Welcome to Cedar Creek Bed & Breakfast located in Traverse City, Michagan.

    Credar Creek Bed & Breakfast is an original Greilick family home. Built in 1892, it was located on the corner of M-22 and Cherrybend Road for over 100 years in a small community called Greilickville. In the Spring of 1990, we had the house moved to its new location in the hills of the old TimberLee Ski Resort. .

    We have two guest rooms with private baths, and numerous indoor/outdoor common areas for guests to enjoy. Our setting features flowering shrubs,trees, perennials, a water garden and rustic, wooded countryside views. Two backyard decks provde comfortable areas for reading, socializing, enjoying a cocktail and a snack as well as viewing the pond, perennial gardems and Leelanau county. 

    A full breakfast or large continental is served each morning in the dining room. Meals always feature lots of fresh fruit, gourmet coffee, herbal teas, homemade scones, french toast or coffee cake, locally made breads and bagels, yogurt, juices and other tasty surprises.
