Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you Jitka and John! We sisters couldn't thank you enough for your wonderful hospitality. Upon arriving we were captivated by the beautiful landscape, very large trees (in color) front and back. Flowers and just a welcoming entrance into this beautiful B&B! The rooms were furnished and decorated with everything we needed & then some! Very comfortable sleeping...felt like coming home. There was no skimping on the breakfast and snacks. Jitka is a wonderful cook and the food was delicious. We enjoyed conversing with Jitka & John while there. We learned about her heritage and how closely we were linked with our Slovak ancestory. When in the St. Joseph, MI area, you must make plans to stay at The Dove Nest. You won't be disappointed! Best Always, Chris, Sheryl & Denise
This was our first experience with B&B so we didn't know what to expect. Upon arrival we automatically loved the look of the house and the décor. Once inside we met Ginger and Lou who were absolute sweethearts. They explained to us everything that we needed to know. Our room hands down blew us away. We had the sweetheart package, the rose paddles on the bed, chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottle of red wine. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and delivered hot to the room... What more could you ask for. I think we found that very special place for a romantic getaway that we can call our own. Thank you Ginger and Lou and we'll see you again soon.
This is the second time that we have stayed at the Castle in the Country. Everything about the stay was great! From the moment that we arrived and were greeted by the owner until we checked out, everything was perfect. The room was quiet and clean. The breakfast was outstanding. There isn't a bed and breakfast around with a better breakfast offering. Everything was great! The location is also perfect. There is plenty of things to do because it is close enough to Holland, Saugatuck, Grand Rapids and Fennville. We will definitely stay here again and again.
We loved this Bed and Breakfast. It was so relaxing and romantic. A great place to escape. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing. If you are looking to get away without the kids you need to come here.
My wife and I recently stayed at the Delano Inn. We stayed in the Delano Suite and were very impressed by the quality of the room. Both Marcia and Kent are very friendly and we both enjoyed the delicious breakfast prepared by Marcia. We went on a carriage ride and enjoyed wine and chocolates in our room. We would highly recommend the Delano Inn to all and look forward to our next visit.
Our fourth stay and it did not disappoint! Camelot Suite is amazing! So appreciate Ruth and Herb's hospitality. Location is wonderful; attention to detail brilliant! Look forward to a return visit!
My husband and I recently stayed at Delano for the weekend. The home was beautiful and Marsha was a lovely host. Room was spacious and hot tub a delight. We wanted a break from Chicago and Allegan was the right place. We went horseback riding at Wild West ranch and went to antique shops which had so much to offer at good prices. We went to a wonderful little cinema and surprisingly had a great tour of the jail museum. The people in Allegan have well deserve pride in their little town. Beautiful streets to walk down, the homes were grand and everyone was welcoming. The town shuts down pretty early, but that helped us to appreciate DeLano. Its grounds are beautiful and there's so many areas to sit outside and relax an enjoy the peace. It was definitely the right place to go.
Will never stay anywhere else in Saugatuck as long as David and June are the host and hostess. They love what they do and it shows. Absolutely perfect for a two night stay. Refreshing get-a-way!
We stayed for our 5 year wedding anniversary to have a weekend away. It was a gorgeous relaxing stay, we loved walking the grounds, the delicious breakfasts, and the wonderful dining in the area. We will definitely be back again.
From the moment we pulled up to this wonderful B&B and stepped through the door, we were immediately greeted by innkeeper Marcia. She showed us around the mansion and the architectural details were beautiful. Such as, the 11 foot sliding pocket doors and the 12 foot ceilings highly decorated with Victorian accents. It was Victorian at its best! Each room had its own character and charm. Our room was the French Garden and it was a separate residence just off the back of the property, and it was beautiful as well. Room had a electric fireplace, King Bed, walk-in shower with a separate two person deep whirlpool tub and a water fountain located right out in front of our room. There was also a Gazebo that was lit up at nighttime. Marcia is a very detailed innkeeper and she takes everything to heart. Each day was started off with a surprising homemade breakfast that was delicious! The area itself had plenty of things to do. Winery's were just a short drive away and downtown Allegan was a short walk away. We were able to visit Holland and Fennville. Definitely enough to do for a few days. If your looking to just go and relax within a Victorian setting and be humbled by the surrounding area, then you have to check this B&B out. Hospitality at its finest! Thanks Marcia and Kent for making our 21st Anniversary very special. We will see you again someday. Tim and Tina :)
Our children gave us a two night stay at the Yelton Guest House as an anniversary present. From the minute we walked in to register we knew we were going to have a great experience. Elaine and Rob were both extremely gracious hosts and extremely helpful. The room was absolutely beautiful and the amenities were wonderful. Having the continental breakfast of coffee, orange juice, muffins, and breakfast bread waiting outside the door each morning let us plan our day the way we wanted to. We have stayed at a number of B&B's but this one was by far the nicest experience we have had.
Soon as we entered the front door, our service was wonderful! Super friendly and helpful , happily accomadated our every need. Breakfast each morning was amazing! Such a relaxing atmosphere! Grounds are beautiful, especially in the fall.
What a delightful way to explore this lovely area of Michigan by staying at this great Bed & Breakfast. The inn keepers, Patty & Mike, were exceptionally welcoming and hospitable. We initially planned to stay just one night but decided to extend our stay to 2 nights because we so enjoyed the inn as well as the surrounds darling towns and excellent wine tastings at the vast number of area vineyards. Breakfast was fabulous - homemade light and flaky cranberry scones, beautiful individual soufflés, homemade pear sauce with a cinnamon reduction, freshly baked breads. And best of all - there were always homemade cookies in the cookie jar along with ample snacks and beverages to make us feel right at home.
This was our first experience staying at a Bed and Breakfast, and it most certainly won't be our last. We stayed at Castle in the Country for our honeymoon and everything was spectacular. We upgraded to the royal treatment package and it was worth every penny. The food was wonderful, everyone we met was very nice and personal. I could write pages of worth of great things to say, the only negative is that it will be difficult staying somewhere else because this stay has raised our expectations. We hope to return again next year.
We stayed in the smallest room which is extremely small. A/C in the bathroom meant the walls don't go up to the ceiling and it's really cold after a shower. We tried to get to the boats for the full experience but we're attacked by so many mosquitoes we could not get there, even after bug spray. The grounds are beautiful as were the other rooms we saw. The food is outstanding. Not too much else to do in the immediate area but there are other towns about 40 minutes away.
This was our first time going to a Bed and Breakfast and I have to say we cant wait to go back! Castle in the Country is awesome! The people, the rooms, the grounds, the food and well everything is done top notch! 5 stars
This was our 2nd visit to Castle in the Country! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to visit again soon. The rooms and property are gorgeous and very relaxing. We love the surrounding towns and the incredible shopping! The innkeepers are incredible host and wonderful chef's.
I stayed here in October. Very pleased with the property and rooms. The house was beautiful and the porch was great for relaxing with a glass of wine. Check in was easy and no hassle. Breakfast was amazing! Everything was fresh and seasonal and the dining room was cozy. I would recommend this B&B.
We had stayed at the DeLano Inn the end of June of 2014. We wanted a nice place to stay for my daughters wedding. We could not have chosen a better bed and breakfast. Hopitality was excellent, we are looking to stay there again. Gene and Emily Ryers
The DeLano Mansion Inn is beautiful inside and out. Our room was perfect in every way. It was our Anniversary weekend, so we had an Anniversary card and a box of chocolates in our room when we arrived, which was a very sweet touch. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and all the ingredients used were very fresh. If you would enjoy a quiet relaxing stay somewhere, the DeLano Mansion Inn is ideal.
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.
