The Terrace Inn and 1911 Restaurant is open to the public and has been since 1911. Located inside the picturesque Victorian Association of Bay View, the Inn is centrally located to the Auditorium and Theatre on the campus grounds. Bay View was established in 1875 by Methodists from Jackson, Michigan. It evolved into a Chautauqua organization adding summer programs revolving around the arts. Bay View is open only May to November, but the Inn remains open in Fall and Winter with a Break in March/April when it is closed.The rooms have been upgraded but retain the character and charm of the past. Many antiques are still used by guests that were here in 1911. The restaurant is open daily in June through Labor Day and for events and weekend until March (when both inn and restaurant close). The Inn also host private events, dinner and weddings and Jazz Festivals twice a year and special weekends in the off-season. The prices are modest considering the location and customer service and hospitality can't be beat. Known since the beginning as the ''house-hospitable'' the Inn still feels more like a big rambling house than a hotel. It is classified as an Inn since it has over 14 rooms (it has 38) and a restaurant on site. It also has a cocktail /bar/ which is not open in keeping with Bay View's mandate when the liquor license was approved.
