Serendipity was a great experience. The room was little small but that is to be expected in a hundred year old house. The location is perfect for seeing all of downtown Saugatuck. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious! The hospitality was outstanding. David was very helpful in what to see and do. I highly recommend Serendipity. 6/12/2016 Jan Dearborn, MI
We have been to South Haven many times but this is the first time we have stayed at Sand Castle. We were very pleased. The room was clean, Staff was friendly and breakfast was delicious. We liked it so much we have booked another stay for August
The Nelson's are great hosts! The atmosphere was relaxing and we especially enjoyed the 3 course breakfasts! Beautifully landscaped grounds. Very comfortable beds. We would love to stay here again!
Excellent in every way from check in to check out. Owners David & June made sure our visit was perfect. Breakfasts were outstanding. The room was spotlessly clean. I am a lodging owner myself and have to give this establishment a 5 gold star rating in everyway. We stayed in the Library Suite 6-6-16 for 2 nights, 4 women.
Wasn't sure what to expect since we have never stayed at a BNB. Room was clean and well kept. Staff was awesome. Food was not just good. but more than expected. Nice pool. Very near beach and downtown. We walked everywhere. Very happy about our choice and accommodations.
Serendipity is one block away from Butler Street and two blocks from Water Street. It is very convenient to the shops and restaurants of downtown Saugatuck.
David and June are about the nicest folks you can imagine: they gave us helpful advice on dining and excursions in and around Saugatuck, and they cooked up a delicious breakfast (cheddar scones, fresh fruit, and frittata). My wife and I loved their home, especially the hot tub and sauna set-up in the backyard, and my wife swears the bed was more comfortable than the swanky memory-foam mattress we have at home. That's about the highest praise I can give a B&B: to return home with the resolve to make my home as welcoming and comfortable as David and June's.
This was my first bed and breakfast that I stayed at and it was a wonderful experience. The room was very clean, warm, and the wifi worked very well. Breakfast was amazing! I kept wishing I could have an unlimited portion, but I digress. The bathroom was immaculate and very comfortable. The water was hot and it was very nice after a long day out. Even though the manor is not "right off the water" the drive into town was less than 10 minutes and right off the freeway. But being a little ways out of town made one afternoon extremely relaxing as we hung out on the porch and listened to the birds, enjoyed the sunshine and the constant flow of water from a tiny pond. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay and I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a weekend away.
We really enjoyed our overnight at the Dove Nest. I can't stress enough how clean and comfortable the room was. Breakfast was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Jitka was a wonderful conversationalist. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
Decided to do a weekend getaway and chose South Haven. When I saw the pictures of Monroe Manor, I knew it was the one! From start to finish, everything about it was amazing! The pictures don't do it justice. The inn keeper was a eye sparkling, cheerful woman who was always available to help. The Arbor room was perfect and the bed ....let's say it was hard to get out of it because it was so comfortable! Visits to town to eat, the beach, the KalHaven trail, the movies....wonderful! Everything about this weekend allowed serious R&R. We will definitely be returning!
We stayed two nights at Manroe Manor. We were greeted and treated warmly, like family. The only issue was that the power in half our room kept going out, so we had to constantly go down and alert the inn keeper. It was colder when we went and we needed to use the fireplace, but that seemed to shut the power down. The food was great, location was great too!
We stayed at serendipity for our anniversary. Our hosts were very pleasant and fun to chat with. Everything was clean and comfy. The tvs are small and only have vcrs. They have quite a few vhs tapes to choose from. There is a hot tub and sauna. The rooms are all pretty small but still very nice. The breakfast was delicious! Heart shaped waffles and fresh fruit and a ton of bacon! We would gladly stay here again!
My boyfriend and I have come here the last few years for Valentine's Day. We always feel so welcomed by Marcia. Her and her husband do an absolutely wonderful job at making you feel like you're at home away from home. A+ ! Thank you so much for such great hospitality and I look forward to seeing you next Valentine's Day!
We stayed here for our anniversary. The rooms in the house are small, but very comfortable. The beds and linens and pillows were comfy, clean and very attractive. The tvs were small but sufficient. We were in want of nothing. The hosts were very nice and helpful and fun to chat with. The food was delicious and the quantities were plentiful. The home made biscotti was amazing. We were provided with pamphlets of the businesses and attractions in the area. They definitely aim to please, and pleased we were!
beautiful B&B on gorgeous property. Hosts Jitka and John were so warm and informative about the area and many other topics, Both were very interesting people and enjoyable to converse with. Food was also very good, and made sure to cater to my fuss budget hubby by preparing something different he would eat, Looking forward to going again.
We decided on an overnight stay in Saugatuck at the last minute and were able to stay in the Lightkeeper's Cottage. The accommodations were perfect for two, the breakfast was excellent and the private hot tub was awesome. David was helpful in recommending local restaurants also.
We stayed in the Ashley Room at DeLano Mansion Inn. It was absolutely beautiful. We came from Indiana where skiing is less to be desired and also much more expensive then at the slopes of Michigan (which have great two-for-one deals or men or women's day during the week). We were able to stay a weeknight here and ski for two days at Bittersweet Ski Resort at a great value. Homemade breakfast was absolutely decadent and every detail was accounted for from DVD selection to snacks and drinks and general warmth of the whole house. Thank you!
Absolutely a wonderful place to stay!! Only stayed one night but enjoyed the whole experience. Owners are very friendly. First Bed-N-Breakfast experience and it was a great one. Small, homey feeling. Short walk to downtown and the beach. Will definitely be going back to stay again.
We stayed at the DeLano Mansion during an ice storm in December. Marcia, the hostess made our stay as enjoyable as it good be. Due to the horrible weather, most of the local establishments were closed. We did find a nearby Pub and ordered food to go and was able to enjoy it in our awesome room all nice and cozy. The bed was very comfortable. I loved the look and feel of the entire mansion. If you want to get a little feel of what it was like to live in a home like this during the 1800's (which I do enjoy) then this is the place! We will be back this time in the summer. A Carducci
