The first time we stayed at the DeLano and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Marcia, the innkeeper, was very gracious and accommodating. The room and B&B was everything advertised and more. Many amenities were available or we could sit on the porch and relax. Next time we visit relatives in the area, we will definitely stay at the DeLano.
Our host, Jitka (say Yitka) was very gracious and a wonderful cook. The three course breakfasts were outstanding. The rooms were roomy and comfortable, with plenty of room and closet space to unpack your luggage. Very comfortable beds for a great night sleep. Several different outdoor seating areas throughout the grounds if you are looking for a quiet place to read a book or relax. A large deck and patio in back where we were served breakfast. They also had a fire pit for evening bon fires. Plenty of things to do nearby - dining and shopping in St. Joseph, Silver Beach on Lake Michigan and many nearby wineries to taste at. Nice technology in the rooms too which is somewhat rare at a B & B. HD flat screens with a Blu-ray player that connects to internet for Netflix, Pandora etc. (using your own account) or a DVD from their own library. We would recommend a stay here.
My husband and I were needing some quiet time and we got rest and relaxation at the Dove Nest. The place is very clean which is important to me. It's a lot more quieter than a hotel. The staff made great effort in making their guests feel comfortable. The breakfast was very tasteful and I enjoyed the outside setting.
Serendipity is charming. David and June made us feel welcome and cared for. They introduced us to the charms of Saugatuck-answered our questions and made great recommendations. And the location is perfect-a convenient stroll to bustling downtown with so much to do. The breakfasts were wonderful and made a great start to the day. We look forward to returning.
Our room was lovely and overlooked this gorgeous property. Ruth couldn't be nicer or more helpful and Herb's gourmet breakfasts were the best way to start the day. Loved the walks through the wooded areas and the amenities available at all times made our stay there that much nicer. Will definitely be back
We had two weekday nights available and took them! Having stayed here in the past we knew what we could expect and booked them at the Monroe Manor Inn. Although I would have liked to have tried out a new room, we ended up with the one we had before, the Beechwood, as the Inn was full! The Beechwood's greatest asset is the large bathroom with double sinks and lots of counter space. The room, as well as the rest of the home, is immaculate, comfortable, and very relaxing. Breakfasts were delicious and more than we would ever have at home on any given day! In spite of the rain and fall-like weather, we had a great time and made new friends. Always a worthwhile getaway! Highly recommend this beautiful home on the outskirts of South Haven! Close enough to take in all of the sights and beaches, but just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to sit back and really relax!
This was our first time in a B&B. Its everything we could have asked for. Our host, David, was superb in telling us about the house, town, and sights to see. We really enjoyed the breakfast. I would stay again.
We love Serendipity. Cleanest best place ever; I never want to stay at a hotel again. Felt like home away from home. The breakfast was absolutely fabulous great home made and wonderful food. I would definitely recommend Serendipity!
Friends and I stayed the weekend at Serendipity for a friend's wedding in Saugatuck. The suites were the perfect place for a group all wanting to stay in the same location. David and June gave us plenty of info regarding places to visit in town during our stay. The location of Serendipity could not have been better to all the downtown attractions. The best part was the hot breakfast delivered to our door each morning, which was perfect as we didn't have to leave to find food. It was also delicious. It was a great place and great weekend!
Serendipity is a lovely bed and breakfast, within an easy walk (2 blocks) to the shops in Saugatuck and close to nearby beaches on Lake Michigan. Stayed in "The Library" suite, which had comfortable bedrooms. Lovely breakfast included.
We celebrated one night at Castle in Country Bed & Breakfast for our 10 year anniversary. We could not have celebrated any better. Everything was top-notch. The room was superb, the food excellent and the gounds were so peaceful and well kept. I would highly recommend a stay here and we will definitely return.
The Monroe Manor Inn was just what we were looking for! The Master Suite was beautiful and the breakfast was amazing! We especially loved the wine and cheese at 5 o'clock! We are already planning our next stay! Thank you, Doug and Nancy!
My husband and stayed here for our one year anniversary and we will definitely be back for more visits. We loved the big beautiful master suite (FYI, there is just a claw-foot tub with a handheld shower head. No actual shower in the bathroom) it was tastefully decorated and even though we stayed at the end of July, because of our unusually cool summer we were able to enjoy the electro fireplace. The hosts were very accommodating since we arrived so late Friday night. And the bed was VERY comfortable. Breakfasts were amazing. (Waffles and sausage on Saturday and amazing quiche and raspberry almond muffins on Sunday) the wine and cheese hour at 5 was very nice and the coffee was great! It's only about 10 minutes from town where we rented bikes and road on the trail. Town has several good restaurants and cool shops and antique stores. All in all it was a wonderful place to stay and we don't have enough good things to say about our stay and our hosts.
I surprised my wife for our 20th anniversary with a two night stay here. We had not been here before and only had the online reviews to go by. We stayed in the Lady Guinevere Suite and I opted for the Royal Treatment package. This included breakfast in the room one morning, a couples massage, picnic basket lunch one day, and a dinner voucher from one of three restaurants. They have the service very well choreographed and on-time. All of the staff were exceptionally polite and professional. We really wished we could have stayed a third day to be a little more relaxed. The only reason dining did not get five stars is do to the drive to get to most of the restaurant options. Be sure to try Salt of the Earth and Butch's Dry Dock. Guys, if you want to break the stereotype of the clueless husband surprise your wife with a trip to Castle in the Country. I earned a ton of brownie points and we can't wait to go back!
Enjoyed the privacy of the separate suite. Breakfast was delivered in a basket, and was hot, fresh and delicious. Location couldn't be more convenient for Saugatuck. Took advantage of the hot tub and loved it.
Owners were very friendly and helpful with information about the area and highlights of places to see. Breakfast was delicious each morning. We very much enjoyed our stay at their B&B and our first visit to Michigan! We certainly hope to visit again next year.
My husband and I had a delightful time at the Dove Nest. Our hosts, John and Jitka, were so hospitable. Our room was cozy and clean. There was even a robe hanging in our closet. Jitka created some delicious breakfasts and custom made some dishes for my husband. Although there were no doves, the racing pigeons were fascinating and the flowers were magical. We would certainly return in the future.
My husband and I had a wonderful two day stay to the Dove Nest. Easy to find off of I94 off the main hustle and bustle of downtown St Joseph but an easy drive to town or the beach. we had asked about antiquing to our host, Jikta and was given great advice to visit Niles MI about 20 minutes away and was pleased to find two. Early large antiquing malls. breakfast each day was a real treat with all homemade goodies from quiche to muffins to biscuits wonderful coffe cakes and fresh fruit. The room was extremely clean and the bathroom spacious and accommodated our needs. I would recommend this comfortable clean bed and breakfast to any one.
We have just returned from our stay in The Royal Oak Room at The Dove Nest. We, reluctantly, said our farewells to Jitka and John but, the feeling of being enveloped in Old Word charm, gentility and service came home with us. We shall return to meet Jitka, John and Company soon. This B&B in every detail is a place to remember and a memory to treasure.
We had a wonderful getaway for our 5th Anniversary. We loved Judine and Bob and had a great time! Very clean, food was wonderful, and she was so sweet to talk to every day. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Definitely a place we will return to!
Enjoyed our stay. Found property clean and innkeepers very congenial. Price was about fifty dollars more than we have experienced at a similar inn in this town on the same weekend. Breakfasts were great if you wish to eat at nine am. Coffee and tea outside our room at seven-thirty was a nice touch. Would return again.
The location was perfect for walking out the door for a stroll through Saugatuck! Very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Wish we could've stayed longer.
