About Oviatt House Bed and Breakfast
The house was built in 1900 by James Murchie, who came from Scotland to Traverse in 1891 as an apprentice blacksmith. All of the old woodwork and wooden floors have been preserved over the years in this beautiful centennial home.
Located in Old Town, only two blocks away from Downtown Traverse City. Six beautifully furnished guest rooms in a classic historic home built in 1900 in Traverse City.
