Overlooking the shores of Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay in the northern tip of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula you’ll find Petoskey Michigan, a quaint resort community with beauty and charm. Petoskey has been a destination for tourists for more than 100-years and for multiple generations.
People return to soak in the rich views, breathe the clean air, eat at world-class restaurants and shop in the specialty shops and boutiques in the historic downtown. Enjoy community events like concerts in the park, arts festivals and sailing regattas on the lake!
Stafford’s Bay View Inn offers guests the grace and romance of a bygone era, set against the exquisite views of Little Traverse Bay. This charming country Inn was built in 1886 and has enchanted visitors for over 125 years. We have participated in the Work & Travel program since 1998, and have had many satisfied employees. In fact, some of these students enjoy the job so much that they return to work for us consecutive summers! We offer affordable housing and a work place with mangers and coworkers who are excited to be working with people from other countries. Our staff enjoys meeting the students and getting to know about them and their country. We work hard at making students comfortable during their time working for us and living in Petoskey.
