After a difficult Summer with all-day pregnancy sickness, it was absolutely lovely to get out of town for a peaceful baby-moon weekend. We were very pleasantly surprised with the Delano Mansion B&B and it exceeded our expectations to say the least. We stayed in the French Garden suite and appreciated the privacy from the main house. The room was fabulous, clean, comfortable, and very tasteful. We didn't want to leave. Breakfast was plentiful, tasty, beautifully presented, and we appreciated our dietary constraints being accommodated. We would definitely recommend the Delano Mansion.
This was our first experience staying at a B & B. It was absolutely delightful. The breakfasts and afternoon treats were fantastic. I would highly recommend this establishment. The furnishings were just beautiful! Marcia, the innkeeper, was very friendly & helpful with suggestions of places to see & eat in the area.
My husband and I stayed two nights at Castle in the Country for our Mini-Moon. We stayed in room Sir Lancelot.... The room was beautifully decorated, the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in anywhere and our room was discreetly put back together each day by room service while we enjoyed our intimate two course breakfast. Our stay was very relaxing, quiet, comfortable. We will definitely enjoy a return visit.
My boyfriend and I were looking for a romantic B & B for our weekend getaway and couldn't have been happier with Serendipity. Our room was very welcoming and cozy. The breakfasts were delicious and hearty. Fantastic location. We very much enjoyed the hot tub and sauna available on the property. David was an amazing host. Gracious and helpful when asking for suggestions in the area. I highly recommend this place and will be coming back to stay.
This was our 5th stay at the Castle in the Country and it was just as pleasant as the others. Ruth and the staff always have good recommendations for things to do and new places to try. The breakfast was delicious, and provided a great start to the days. The views from our room and on the grounds do not disappoint. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We can't wait to go back.
This was our second time staying at the inn and it doesn't disappoint. Every detail is well thought out and executed. It's warm and inviting. The breasfast is healthy fare and very delicious. I love the fact that they share their recipes on line. We are making staying at the inn an annual tradition.
We stayed for one night on our way to Traverse City. We found the Castle in the Country to be beautiful, clean and relaxing. Ruth provides much attention to detail in the decorating and comfort of your stay. She was very helpful to us in determining were we would want to spend our limited amount of time and found that she was right on the money. Her recommendations did not fail us. Breakfast was wonderful. My husband and I are both gluten free and they made every effort to accommodate us. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms and that was fine for what we needed, but would recommend any of the suites they have on the property. We were able to view all of the rooms before we left and they are wonderful for a romantic getaway.
I stayed at the Bed & Breakfast twice this summer, once with a group of girls and again with another couple. Both times were wonderful. We loved having a porch for games in the evening. The location was perfect -- we could walk everywhere. The breakfast was good and delivered hot and on time. And the hosts were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
Very nice stay definently a great choice to get away with your significant other had a great time. Service was amazing very well prepared and planned had great information and maps for everything to do nearby.
This is a real quaint house in the best part of town. Walking distance to everything, and so easy to find. David and June are so welcoming and go the extra mile to share with you all of the options you have available to you in Saugatuck--and there are many! So knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed our time so much we'll definitely be back to Saugatuck in the near future.
We only stayed one night, but would have loved to stay longer! This is a beautiful old Victorian home in the country, but close to Lake Michigan. The owners did a wonderful job of keeping with the era of the home, but giving it an updated look with modern amenities. (flat screen TVs, free wif-fi) The home was super clean everywhere... inside and out! We had our bikes with us, so we were able to ride on the trails on the property. We rode to the lake where you could either use the paddle boat or kayaks. We chose the paddleboat and it was so fun! We rode our bikes back up through the trails and grabbed our picnic basket that was ready for us to take to the screened in gazebo. It was a delicious dinner of a fresh green salad, homemade pot pies, rolls, sparkling juice and delicious little bite sized desserts. We even had Ms Abby, the resident cat join us! After dinner, we went on a short drive to visit our son in nearby, Holland. When we came back, we grabbed a couple complimentary movies and popcorn to take up to our room. We stayed in the Golden Tower, which was beautiful and cozy. Everything was very tastefully decorated. Slept very well! In the morning we again rode our bikes to the breakfast house.... fresh fruit, juice, a freshly made blueberry muffin and made to order omelet. All delicious!! I would recommend this B&B to anyone that wants a peaceful, relaxing spot in the country. (In fact, I already have to at least three people!) No details have been left out. The owners definitely know what they're doing!
My husband and I spent our 26th anniversary here and loved every detail that Ruth and Herb put into this place. The scenic path and surrounding wildlife was beautiful, our room was AMAZING and the breakfast, cookies, coffee, teas, hospitality, and amenities available were perfect. We have been to several bed and breakfasts in various states and this one is on the top of our list. We will highly recommend it and definitely return. Two other couples that we know also came here this past year and were in different rooms than ours and had the same experience we did. Keep up the fantastic job of putting meticulous detail into your Inn for couples to get away.
We stayed here 2 time, once in July & In Aug. The Breakfasts were Fantastic, the cottage was cute and cozy we had our privacy, hot tub was great the ladder up to the loft was different but all and all it is a great little place to stay. Everything close , can walk anywhere around town. Tell Dave & June We sent you. They will treat you like family.
Location matters a lot, and in that respect, Castle in the Country delivers. The surrounding forest is beautiful. However, the house is three stories high, which requires you to carry all of your bags yourself up three stories with no assistance. The room was not very attractive, much like your grandparent's extra bedroom with a nice name tag. The house does not have central air. The air conditioning unit was very, very loud. Parking was ample, however. There was free popcorn. Breakfast and the view (though breakfast was not large nor a culinary feat), was pleasant. Check in is a bit late (4pm-6pm). Checkout is a bit early (11am). Which was also a bit annoying. So if you're coming, make sure you're coming for the nature, because there isn't much else that makes it worth it.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Castle in the Country. Ruth and Herb do a wonderful job at paying attention to details. They are extremely accommodating and have a perfect set up. I highly recommend this facility if it is in your price range!
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!
