The Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast in beautiful Whitehall Michigan is just minutes to Lake Michigan's sugar sand beaches, miles of bike or cross country ski trails and abundant golfing and antiquing. Recipient of many culinary awards, Larry's delicious breakfasts receive rave reviews. Read them for yourself under the reviews section! Spring, Summer or Fall the light and airy enclosed front porch quickly becomes everyone's favorite room. Start your morning with a fresh cup of coffee and savor the aromas wafting from the kitchen, while reading one of our many daily newpapers. If your not a news junkie, our extensive library has something for everyone. Known as the "Sunset Coast", you can relax and enjoy a glorious evening's sunset over White Lake. If a nap is on your agenda, take Lisa's advise, "this is THE spot!"
Full time Innkeeper and Chef, Larry Robertson, whips up a flourless chocolate torte, one of the many CHOCOLATE delicacies guests enjoy at the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast. Chocoholics find treats like homemade chocolate-chocolate chip meringues, chocolate zucchini bread and Mama Tallarico's Homemade Hot Fudge (for breakfast!) at the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast. Chef Larry was recognised by Arrington's Inn Traveler Magazine with thier "Best Breakfast 2004" Award, ranked 5th in the nation by inn travelers. Many, many thanks to our wonderful guests for this honor in our first year of operations!Larry and Lisa enjoy a moment of laughter (a daily requirement at the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast) on their pergola enclosed garden patio. Lisa's artistic and Master Gardener talents are enjoyed by guests and delight passers-by. Designed for shade, privacy and seasonal impact, the gardens are a favorite resting spot for our guests. To compliment mother natures artistic flair, Lisa enjoys decorating the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast for every holiday. Over 40 Jack-O-Lanterns adorn the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast windows at Halloween and the several dozen gaily colored, jumbo eggs in the gardens at Easter are a town favorite. Christmas, well, you just have to be here!
The Hershey Room. Nothing is more classic than "The Great American Chocolate Bar", the inspiration for our classic Americana, north woods cabin room. King-size rustic log bed, Navajo rug, and fur traders blankets adorn this outdoor themed retreat. Antique fishing creel, snowshoes, skis, and duck decoys embrace the “outdoor” experience. Plus, plenty of, “Kisses™”!The Cadbury Room. Classic English Styled gardens inspired this room that honors the simple country life in rural England where scones, tea and Cadbury chocolates are an afternoon ritual.  The light, fresh garden motif with queen-size white wrought iron bed and white wicker accents deliver springtime freshness to even a Michigan winter day!
The Godiva Room. The essence of one of the world's most seductive chocolates is captured in our romantic getaway Godiva room. The queen-size brass bed, Lisa's grandma's antique steamer trunk and rich linens adorn this room.  A private balcony for two with etched french doors invite in the morning sunshine and warm breezes that tempt you to linger at the Cocoa Cottage.Breakfast is served! Spring, Summer or Fall savor one of Larry's specialties-Cottage Eggs, Chocolate-Raspberry French Toast, Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, Eggs in Purgatory or any one of Larry's seasonal specialties while enjoying the beautiful song of the morning doves on the garden patio. The Lake breezes and the warm sunshine tempt you to treat yourself to just one more cup of coffee on the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast patio.     Enjoy!
Ghirardelli Suite

Our period-authentic Arts and Crafts guest room combines the California spirit of bungalows with their legendary chocolate maker, Ghirardelli®! The Dard Hunter quarter-sawn oak Stickley queen bed, Bradbury and Bradbury wall coverings and Craftsman pottery return you to a time of simplicity, authenticity, and enduring style. The turn of the century "sanitary bathroom" hosts a modern day private whirlpool for a perfect end to a chocolate filled day!
