I don't think the pictures do the place justice...we were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful inn tucked away & off the street. You would never know the size of the place just by driving by. The owners are crazy with little details & impeccable taste in decorating! Their garden & landscaping is amazing...and fresh flowers all around inside & out. You can cozy up in a chair to read or take a bike & ride or walk down the street one way to the lake & beach or the other to a winery.tasting. The owner/inn keepers kept out of the way other than welcoming us, giving area attraction suggestions & serving a delicious breakfast. Felt like it was our little place! They have a huge movie library too. Even the bath soaps, etc were extra special! ...remember I said they were crazy with details! :) Loved this place...and the area speaks for itself, so much to do! ..or not do!

My husband and I were looking to get away for a few days and Garden Grove was perfect! Our main interest was in heading to several of the wineries and breweries in the area, but we also took advantage of being able to walk along the beach and bike ride down the bike trail along the lake. The location was great and we would definitely consider coming back again!

We had a wonderful stay at Garden Grove Rose B &B. This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast. I was just so relaxed and absolutely left work behind once I entered the Inn. The owners, Jerry and Paula were so gracious and kind. Our room was beautiful and the grounds were very beautiful. Dave and I absolutely loved our experience despite the power outage! Nothing could be done about that! The breakfast was delicious and relaxing. This is a place to escape the worries of every day and just enjoy each other and relax. The B & B is located perfectly close to all other activities and things to do. We enjoyed everything! Dave J and Cheryl S..

This was our first experience at a B&B, and we really chose a wonderful one. Paula and Jerry greeted us right away and made us feel right at home. The property grounds are very well landscaped and includes several chairs for your relaxation. Our room was fantastic! The morning breakfasts are delicious. We plan on going back many more times.

Jerry and Paula never disappoint. Garden Grove has been our perfect getaway for about 12 years. We just returned home from our 16th or 17th stay (I'm losing count!), and every visit has been wonderful. The hospitality is great, the rooms and common areas are comfortable and immaculate and the breakfast is superb. We could not wish for a better B&B experience!

We have stayed in b&b's about half a dozen times and have never enjoyed such generous and delicious breakfasts. We stayed 3 nights and were delighted every morning to have a lovely basket filled with piping hot and delicious food delivered to our door promptly at 9:30. Each breakfast included a different variety of fresh, perfect berries, melons, and other fruits. Day 1 was Michigan blueberry pancakes with the best scrambled eggs and sausage links. Day 2 was red pepper, zucchini, and cheese quiche accompanied by seasoned red skin and Yukon gold potatoes. Our last day was apricot stuffed french toast with grilled Polish and breakfast sausages. I know this is a lot of detail but the Welsh's really give new meaning to the breakfast part of bed and breakfast! Our room (the Garden Retreat) in the coach house was beautifully decorated and absolutely immaculate. There was a spray of beautiful orange gladiolas to greet us and lots of other thoughtful and classy touches- like lovely soaps and bath salts and assorted teas (my favorite, Constant Comment). The grounds are beautiful with lots of pleasant spots to sit in the shade and read. We ate our breakfasts at one of the umbrella tables. Also enjoyed riding the bikes to the nearby beach. Paula and Jerry have spared no expense in making their b& b a top shelf place to stay. I couldn't recommend it more highly!
5 sur août 30, 2011
I truly enjoyed the experience. The Garden Retreat is beautiful, the bed was so comfortable. I walked the yard and enjoyed the birds chirping, the gorgeous flowers and the beach sunset was fascinating. Paula and Jerry are special people, they know how to take care of you. The breakfasts were out of this world. Don't pass this place up ... Don't miss this beautiful place!

Garden Grove is a beautiful place. The innkeepers Jerry and Paula have done a excellent job with their B & B. We would definitely recommend anybody looking to stay in Harbor Country to book a room at Garden Grove. It is very clean, comfortable, cozy, and breakfast was delicious! Location is great because you're right in the middle of the local towns to see. Jerry and Paula understand your needs for a enjoyable stay. We would stay here again without a doubt!
5 sur août 10, 2011
We spent two weeks last year and a week this summer and this is a great find that I wish could be a secret between us. The wonderful, clean beaches of Lake Michigan are three minutes away and the return to the Garden Grove is a welcome "home away from home." Jerry & Paula are wonderful hosts. Breakfasts are sumptuous and will hold you through lunch! The rooms are great and not so fussy that you feel it's your grandmother's house. The rates are the best around and we have shopped for a long time. If we could only live there...
5 sur juillet 31, 2011
Enjoy well-appointed rooms and excellent breakfasts using locally grown ingredients. The innkeepers are warm and inviting, quick to share local attractions and wine at happy hour!

Our recent stay at Garden Grove was in the beautiful Woodland suite in the upper level of the detached carriage house. The room was very spacious and modern with tasteful decor. We loved the see through fireplace that could be enjoyed from the sitting area or the bedroom. Jerry welcomed us on our arrival and shortly we were treated to a wonderful in-room massage, arranged by Garden Grove. We took in the sunset at the public beach just a few minutes away and then played at the nearby Four Winds Casino. It was wonderful to return to our suite and relax in the big jacuzzi tub. The king size bed was very comfortable and our room was blissfully quiet. Breakfast was yummy and was delivered to our room hot and exactly at the time promised. Apricot preserve stuffed french toast, sausage and poached pears. Coffee, tea, water and juice is provided in the room. Jerry was a wonderful host, very helpful with dining and wine tasting suggestions (several local vineyards have tasting rooms.) Unfortunately I left my internet air card in the room but I contacted Jerry and he found my air card and mailed it to me right away--thanks, Jerry! It was a lovely, romantic stay. My husband and I are looking for an excuse to get back to Garden Grove again SOON!

Had a wonderful weekend stay at the Garden Grove B&B. Innkeeper Jerry was extremely friendly and a wealth of information, though extremely respectful of privacy. He gave a 2-minute tour of the room, but was on hand as needed. We stayed in the Lavender Room of the Carriage House, which was delightful. The room was very clean and very cozy. Everything that we needed was stocked in the room. It was a cold night, but the fireplace kept the room toasty, and the bed was very comfortable with lots of soft linens. We will definitely return, and we will tell our friends!

Jerry and Paula Welch provided a weekend of much needed relief from our normal chaos. The Garden Grove B&B is uncomplicated and comfortable. I am sure they have learned to anticipate their guests needs in advance so there was nothing we did not have available to us and with easy access. They were friendly and full of helpful hints about the area; in fact we followed nearly all of their recommendations as this was our first time to the area. The food was fresh and so delicious! I do admit my favorite part was waking up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and then snuggling back under the blanket for a few more winks. Whether we needed chairs for the beach or a bike to ride it was all available to us and we were encouraged to make use of everything. It was like visiting old friends rather than staying at an Inn. We would most definitely stay again.

My husband and I are both Chicago Police Officers and were desperate for a quick get-away from the city. We decided to stay at the Garden Grove B&B. It's one of the best decisions we have ever made. I can not begin to explain how AWESOME this place is. Jerry and Paula went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and made sure we were completely satisfied. The Garden Grove BB far exceeded our expectations. The homemade blueberry pancakes were an absolute hit. We can not wait to go back!!! EXCELLENT

We just stayed the weekend at the Garden Grove (Lavender Room) and had a great time. The room was great - good size, nice amenities and very clean. The only oddity was that the wall in the bathroom didn't go all the way to the ceiling, so there is little privacy while using the bathroom. The breakfasts were fabulous and delivered piping hot to the door each morning. The hosts were wonderful and full of helpful information. You must try Soe Cafe - excellent food. I hope to make it back to the Garden Grove again. Everything was simply perfect.

As one who has never even thought of staying in a B & B, I was a bit hesitant when my husband surprised me with a romantic weekend getaway - to a B & B! But from the minute we pulled up to the property - I was hooked. We met Jerry during check in who is a wealth of local information! One of my B & B concerns - over - friendly innkeepers - was immediately put to rest. Jerry was the perfect combination of hospitality while respecting our privacy. Another of my B & B concerns was cleanliness...the condition of the room (we stayed in the beautiful Woodland Suite) was spotless! A bonus perk - Jerry put my husband in touch with a massage therapist that travels to the property for in - room massage - absolutely wonderful!! I think the Garden Grove has spoiled me and the hotels I used to enjoy have something to live up to!

My husband and I enjoyed a marvelous weekend at the Garden Grove B&B in Southeast Michigan. We stayed in the Garden Retreat which is a lovely first floor room in the carriage house on the Garden Grove property. Painted a beautiful yellow with cobalt blue accents, the Garden Retreat lived up to its name as a restful, enjoyable room. The double Jacuzzi accommodated us perfectly; the gas fireplace provided excellent romantic atmosphere. Breakfasts were terrific, in particular, a vegetable quiche and strawberry cinnamon coffeecake delivered to our doorstep on Sunday.

This BnB is a treasurer. The old farmhouse is located in a resential area, but once you turn down their long driveway you'll realize your in your own, beautiful, seculded world. The gardening and grounds are kept immaculate and the landscaping is top-notch. The house is well-appointed and large - but the layout makes it very cosy. To top it off Jerry and Paula are very friendly and helpful. We were there for an early morning 100mile bike ride..and Paula got up at the crack of dawn, 3 hours earlier, to make us breakfast! Great place - we'll be back.

We stayed 3 nights in the Woodland suite over the summer, and had a marvelous time. The room was clean and beautifully decorated, we had all the amenities we needed, and the bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the selection of movies to choose from, the game system, and the jacuzzi in suite. The breakfasts were delicious! They had unique, tasty recipes served at your door right on time every morning. The gardens around the building were beautiful, and the owners were friendly and helpful. We also used their free bike rentals for a ride in the country - though, the bikes were quite old, they worked fine. The location of the b&b is great as well - near to Warren Dunes State park, and the small, quaint towns of Union Pier and Lakeside, also not far from New Buffalo. We will definitely stay again! Thanks for a nice time!
