About Us

Learn from the past. Adapt to the present. Plan for the future. These are the words we live by at the new Bowers Harbor Inn. For years, we were known simply as the finest dining destination in Traverse City, MI. Today, we are so much more. Comprised of two different restaurants — Mission Table and Jolly Pumpkin — banquet facilities within the main Inn building and the new Peninsula Room, and a state-of-the-art brewing and distilling facility, the Bowers Harbor Inn complex is a modern reinterpretation of what a pure Northern Michigan experience should be:

  • Food and drink borne of and sustained by the local soil
  • An unpretentious atmosphere that welcomes all
  • Service that reflects the generosity of the land and the casual hospitality of the local community. Our service staff is chosen for their passion to serve others, and will remember that gathering at the table with family and friends is a central human experience               
  • Warm and inviting — a place where our guests relax, feel welcome and enjoy the natural beauty of Old Mission Peninsula


From the scenic drive up the west arm of Grand Traverse Bay to the secluded 11 acres and 650 ft. of majestic shoreline that the complex sits upon, you will be delighted by the historic aura and progressive philosophy that Bowers Harbor Inn offers.
