Antiquities Wellington Bed & Breakfast is a historical Traverse City landmark where gracious turn-of-the-century traditions are complimented by modern conveniences. This unique downtown Traverse City neighborhood location is within a short walk to fine restaurants, shops, recreational trails and the spectacular beaches of Grand Traverse Bay. Built by one of Traverse City's lumber barons, this spectacular mansion has been fully restored to its original grandeur and features period antiques throughout the hotels' nine guest rooms, dining room, library and living room. Each morning guests are treated to a sumptuous full breakfast in the turn-of-the-century dining room. Refreshments and snacks are always available in the guest kitchen located off the 3rd-floor ballroom.
Barb and Hank Rishel purchased the historic home in 1999 and following an extensive restoration, they opened it in 2003 as Antiquities Wellington Inn, a landmark Bed & Breakfast and downtown jewel.
