About The Owners

Innkeepers Shirley and Verne Osterlund will welcome you upon arrival and assure that your expectations are met during your stay. Originally from the Birmingham-Bloomfield area, both attended high school in Royal Oak, Michigan.  Verne graduated from Lawrence Tech while Shirley received a BSN from Oakland University which lead to a lengthy career at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. 

Shirley and Verne decided to make the move north and purchase Bay Inn of Petoskey in January 1999.  The move came after a twenty-year career operating the successful St. Christopher Inn located in Bloomfield Township.
