Everything about our stay was fantastic. Mike was incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home, and Kim's 4 course meal was stunning. Three words - stuffed French toast! Would definitely stay here again!

The room was absolutely beautiful. I love that the whole building has such an exotic feel to it, filled with unique artifacts from around the world especially Asia. (I think it could be a little bit cleaner as far as dusting goes.) The homemade crackers were wonderful and fun to have with the provided cheeses and wine. A nice touch, but you do pay a bit more than other places for that bonus! The breakfast was lavishly presented, but I would have liked less of an all-sweet menu. I also would have preferred the option to eat in our room. The hostess was very friendly, but honestly we went there for the privacy and get-away feeling, not to feel pressed for small talk conversation with the couple across from us and/or the host.

Rita and Mike are the most amazing hosts! Wonderful people, welcoming environment, great rooms and great breakfast. We have now celebrated both of our birthdays here and will make this an annual tradition, can't recommend highly enough, although this web page would not let me select outstanding for some reason, the experience is just that!!

I can't say enough good about this bed and breakfast. Everything was wonderful! We stayed in the Raffles room and it was perfect. We looked into each room and we can't wait to go back and try them all. The food was wonderful and the value was exceptional. We will definitely be going back.

My husband and I stayed a night in the Raffles room and it was absolutely gorgeous and spacious (probably the 2nd largest room in the house). The complimentary chocolates, cheese and fruit platter and wine definitely made the Elephant Walk more value for money than the other B&Bs we stayed in. The floors of the bathroom can be really cold though (we stayed in Jan) and would be nice to have rugs on the floor of the bathroom. Breakfast was scrumptious and creative. Mike was very friendly and checked in with us frequently to top our water or coffee. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants a different experience than the conventional Victorian B&B. We've been to Southeast Asia and the choice of decor reminded me of the place, especially Thailand. In a way, it's like entering a different part of the world without actually leaving the midwest!

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The new bath is marble and I was concerned about cold tile so the tile in front of the sink and toilet is heated. Since the shower is curbless and tile so beautiful I felt that the tile would heat right up in shower area. Thank you for mentioning that the heat under the floor tile must have not been turned up enough. Will explain the controls for the infloor heat more thoroughly. We have lots of thick towels for the floor if needed also. We have infloor under the tiles in our bath and I love it.

My daughter and I stayed here as a pre-Christmas/birthday getaway during Christmas break. Rita and Mike were very relaxed and welcoming, and we enjoyed the room (Chiang Mai). The breakfast was unbelievably good, and another guest and I even got the birthday song with candles on our breakfast dessert cake (yes, dessert after breakfast). The yard must look spectacular in the summer, but even in winter it was lovely, with a stone walkway, spruce trees, and wooden architectural features. We would love to return again. p.s. the ratings options on this website would not let me select 'outstanding' for some reason; everything was outstanding but the best this website lets me choose is 'exceeded my expectations.'
