Colonial Inn Hotel, Harbor Springs, offers Hotel Accommodations in a Beautiful Setting

The Colonial Inn Hotel is a "limited service" hotel in an historic inn (1894), but not a bed and breakfast. Expect gorgeous rooms with far more charm than a "Holiday Inn." Continental breakfast on the porch or in our charming breakfast room. Your family will enjoy our swimming pool and indoor spa. A dock on Lake Michigan offers easy access to the waterfront.

Our porches and balconies overlook spacious grounds and provide a perfect location for your summer vacation in this exclusive resort destination. Read a book, have a cocktail, or just relax on your porch or balcony while watching your children play on our spacious grounds, or swim in our pool.
Bring your bicycles. The roads through our neighborhoods have 25 mph speed limits and are safe and picturesque. The famous “Little Traverse Wheelway” Bike path is only a short distance away where you can ride all the way to Charlevoix, 22 miles of continuous riding.

Located easy walking distance (9/10ths mile) from the downtown Harbor Springs shops and restaurants, but tucked into the upscale residential area of "Wequetonsing" -- a quaint "summer neighborhood" of picturesque white clapboard, turn-of-the-century homes, which the locals whimsically call 'cottages.'

"A memoir, a coming of age story, an exploration of father-son relationships, a social history and a how-to-succeed-in business book in one page-turning tome. Tim Brown writes about a unique time and place in Michigan lore, but his is a quintessential American story. It vividly and touchingly portrays a young man trying to wrest respect from his stern father, make his way in the world and find for himself a home. That he finally somehow succeeds at all three makes this a gratifying read." --Rick Skwiot, author of Fail
