Weekend Stay at Kingsley House

4.8 on March 30, 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Chris and Brenda, our hosts, were very kind and helpful in planning our weekend. We had no problem finding fun activities and doing some wine tasting. The B&B was clean, cutely decorated and east to get to. The hosts were great and the breakfasts were delicious! Really outdid themselves.

Innkeeper Response

A wonderful Retreat

4.6 on March 25, 2015

I spent two nights at the Kingsley House combining business and pleasure. I knew right away when I talked with Chris on the phone that I would enjoy my time there and Brenda made me an amazing breakfast on both mornings. These Innkeepers are very proud to be B&B owners and have a lovely relationship with each other and their guests. Thank you both for a blissful time away, I can't remember the last time I had a relaxing whirlpool bath on two nights in a row! This was a wonderful break from my busy schedule and I look forward to my next getaway.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to provide such a wonderful review and we're glad that you were able to relax and enjoy the Jacuzzi to enhance your stay. We look forward to your return. Chris & Brenda


Favorite B & B! Great experience.

4.6 on March 24, 2015

We stayed at this B & B two nights, and the service was wonderful. The hosts were so accommodating, and even made us gluten free quiche & waffles! They were very knowledgeable about area attractions and helped us find fun things to do. The house is a beautiful victorian, and every room has its own charm. This is my new favorite B & B!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review. It was our pleasure to serve you and we are thankful that we have earned the title as your new favorite B&B


Northern Spy Suite was Stunning!

5 on March 16, 2015

My fiancé and I traveled for a one night stay to the Kingsley House! I found Kingsley House online, while searching for great B&B's in Michigan! Once I saw the photos of the Northern Spy suite, i KNEW that it was the room we had to stay in! It was so cozy, and very vintage! The entire house is Vintage….! Brenda & Chris are AMAZING people, so easy to talk to and get along with…we had a blast getting to know them. We know we will definitely return to The Kingsley House in our future :) Also, they (and many more locals) recommended to us that we enjoy dinner down the road at "Salt of the Earth" a true farm to table restaurant! IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!! Definitely recommend this beautiful, historical B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway :) Thank you Chris & Brenda! You guys were awesome, Duane & I had a blast! Love, Emma

Innkeeper Response
Dear Emma, you are so sweet to leave such a wonderful review. It was such a pleasure having you and Duane stay with us, we just wish it could have been longer :o) You are such a fun couple and you will have a great life together. Have a wonderful wedding, we hope to see the newlyweds once you tie the knot. All the best, Chris & Brenda

Look no further!

Fantastic getaway here! Chris and Brenda go all out to create a relaxing and welcome stay for you. You realize right away the heart and passion they have for their beautiful home. The location is perfect to get out of the hustle and bustle yet close enough to Holland to quench your shopping thirst. If you want to take a look back in time, there are numerous antique shops to peruse as well. Your breakfast is prepared exquisitely each morning. Sweets and popcorn are available throughout the day. For lunch and dinner we visited Cranes and Saugatuk Brewing Company. Great food and reasonable prices. There is so much to enjoy about this getaway. To top it off, we took a sleigh ride through the woods. You will be very pleased that you chose this B&B. We will be repeat customers for sure.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we are happy that your stay with us was so enjoyable. We can't wait to see you again. All the best, Chris & Brenda
