What Our Guests Think


Loved the home and the wonderful porch to enjoy the great weather. Misty and Eric were wonderful host and hostess, answered many questions, helped us with places to go, and where to dine. The rooms were clean and comfy. Eric’s breakfasts were amazing!!

Slice of Heaven

Country Hermitage is like a slice of heaven! You definitely will not be disappointed. Misty and Eric go above and beyond to make sure your stay is everything and more than you expected. This was our second stay and we will definitely return.

Hard to Beat

Eric and Misty, who run the place, keep it immaculate. They are friendly and funny and Eric makes the best breakfast I’ve ever had at a B&B. I highly recommend visiting if you’re in Northern Michigan and want to be within minutes of the lake, the resort and downtown ER or TC.
