This bed and breakfast has set a new standard for all bed and breakfasts around the world! l promise you, if you choose to stay there you will not be sorry!! The nicest people you ever want to meet. I don't know where Jen learned to cook and I don't care, the food was delicious. Phil's ribs are to die for!! The rooms and the peace and quiet were excellent not to mention relaxing. The service was impeccable!! My wife and I drive 700 miles to check out this place. We absolutely loved it. The other couples were nice to eat and chat with. It all felt like family. When you go, ask Jen to make some cinnamon ice cream, you won't leave, I promise!! We also loved all of the organic food, did I say that already? I swear I gained 10 pounds. Her homemade jams are the best. I think we bought 4 jars. My wife and I recommend an extended stay here. Yes Jen, I as all of the ice cream. Didn't get a chance to melt. Say hi to the turkeys for me Phil!! Thanks so much for the hospitality!!

Just what a tired mama needed :)

I had the most relaxing, rejuvenating stay at the Farmhouse! As soon as I pulled into the driveway, I was already plotting when I would get to come back. Everything is pristine inside and out and their garden beds are enviable. Jennifer is an amazing cook and both her and Phil make you feel like family. The peace and quiet and yummy food were just this tired mama of two needed for a night! Can't wait to go back!

Innkeeper Response
I'm pleased that you felt relaxed and rejuvenated after staying with us. That's one of the best compliments that you can give us! I loved talking with you about the gardens. What did you cook with the herbs? I look forward to your next visit. Jennifer


Awesome Stay

5 on September 01, 2014

Stayed 2 nights. Very nice accommodations, and everything worked, like the window A/C, the room refrigerator, and lights. Also had hot water in the bathroom! Now you might take those niceties for granted, but I've stayed at motels charging twice the rate as this place & found one or more of those items broken. Service was excellent, the caretakers were very accommodating, and the whole experience was pleasant & relaxing. A great low key weekend, as it should be!

This was just outside Frankenmuth and was a wonderful stay. We enjoyed walking the property and just sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch. The beds were compfy and the breakfast was great. We will recommend this to others and will stay here again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the nice review! We love that we are so close to Frankenmuth, Bay City, Midland and Saginaw but still out in the country for that quiet, relaxing environment that our guests enjoy.

We travel over 100 nights a year for business. Don't usually ever stay in B&B's. This stay was fantastic. VERY comfortable beds. Outstanding breakfast with everything made from scratch. We even ate chive flowers on our scrambled eggs which were beautiful. Loved watching our Friday night show on comfy couch. All the comforts of home. Jen happily switched rooms to accommodate us. Even with shared bath, we highly recommend this home. Thanks Phil and Jen!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Sandra! It was a pleasure having you stay with us. I'm so glad you were comfortable. That is our number one goal. We loved the toffee! If you are ever up this way again come stay with us. You never got to collect eggs! Jenn


Relaxing and Rejuvenating

5 on December 15, 2013

We have been to many B&B's, and this one is very nice! The farmhouse was very clean, spacious, and awesome modern accommodations which we felt very relaxed in. First night we enjoyed wonderful homemade chocolate cookies while watching a movie in the living room with surround sound which my husband loved! Our breakfasts where made fresh everyday, more than enough to eat for everyone. We enjoyed being in the quiet country setting, and going Christmas shopping in the nearby towns of Saginaw, Midland mall, and Birch Run. Our hosts, Jennifer and Phil were wonderful and we enjoyed our many conversations during our time together. We will be telling our family and friends about another great place to stay.

What a great place

5 on December 09, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Farmhouse B&B this past weekend, and honestly we were nervous since it was our first time at a bed and breakfast. But we knew everything would be alright when we were welcomed with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. The owners, Jennifer and Phil, were great and very welcoming. The entire place was clean and very "homie," and breakfast was absolutely delicious. Homemade cinnamon buns, pancakes, fresh apple syrup, cheesecake. I would definitely go again and would recommend this place to anyone.


GREAT place for a much needed get away

5 on November 10, 2013

This was our first time at a B&B. I was kinda leery of a B&B but I am SO glad we went. It was a very nice farmhouse. My husband and I went as our honeymoon since we never had one. Hubby and I played a board game that we brought in the living room and relaxed. The food was so good, it was so nice to have great food and not have to cook myself. During the day we went shopping to Frankenmuth, Birch Run, Midland and Bay City. Lots to do in the area and great get away.


A delightful place to stay.

This is a lovely place, inside and out. It is out in the country, yet near Bay City, Saginaw and Midland, which are full of interesting things to do. The bed and sitting areas are very comfortable, and the food was great - a country breakfast, accompanied by homemade zucchini bread, which was also available when we arrived. Jennifer and Phil were friendly and gracious, even sending us home with tomatoes from their garden!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much! We enjoyed having you. We look forward to having you come stay with us again.


Love it

We had a wonderful time, and felt right at home!! Perfect location to visit if you want to catch a show in Bay City, or the Dow Gardens in Midland. The bed was so comfy and cozy, but the homemade jams were my favorite. Jen is a wonderful cook, the fresh eggs were so yummy !!!!

Innkeeper Response
We have lots more eggs and would love for you to stay with us again!
