Krisi's 24th Birthday Suprise.

4.8 on November 18, 2014

Our stay in the suite was great. We enjoyed the beautiful spanish hacienda. Krisi cried When entering the room. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a royal experience and relaxing getaway. Keep up the great work!


A-MA-ZING!!

5 on November 13, 2014

I cannot say enough good things about our recent weekend at the Prairieside B&B! Everything is done with such exquisite taste from the rooms, to the service, and the food! We've traveled around to many B&B's and I happily admit Prairieside is really exceptional. I would highly recommend a stay here, and I hope to return soon! Best, Janet N.

This was our first stay at Prairieside Suites, and we will certainly be coming back! First, we were pleasantly welcomed upon our arrival by Cheri. She gave us a brief tour of the property, and informed us of all the wonderful amenities . After checking out the rest of the house, Cheri showed us to our room. Chocolates and desserts were waiting, with coffee and hot cocoa also available in the room. We chose the B&B because of its more modern and luxurious feel. We stayed on the Southern Mansion, and when you step in, you immediately feel like you're at home ( but a much nicer home!) Whether it's the heated towel bars, heated toilet seat, or the large two person bath, you will certainly have a relaxed, carefree weekend. All in all, the service has been nothing short of amazing. As for the food...it's awesome! Our first morning we were served quiche, fresh fruit, and a couple great sides. Every morning they put out fresh snacks in the kitchen (chocolate, cake, fruit bars, etc) and yes, we tried them all-that should tell you how good they are! Being that this was our first B&B experience , the best part was that we immediately felt comfortable and at home. Thanks Cheri , we can't wait to do this again!


Enjoyed our stay

Very friendly staff. Rooms very nice and clean. Close to all kinds of things to do. Definitely would go there again.

Innkeeper Response
Not only are our rooms wonderful and clean but we're close to OVER a hundred restaurants, museums, movie theaters, 20+ Breweries, wineries AND only 20 minutes to the lakeshore...we've got it ALL going ON!


Great Room with Mediocre Food

3.4 on November 06, 2014

My hubby & I stayed for 3 night for our 4th Anniversary. The Beach House was clean and serene. The amenities & features of the room are above average. No doubt they put a lot of thought & care into its design. The food was just ok. It seemed like the egg dishes were made from egg beaters as I did see the owner shake up a container of liquid eggs one morning. There was also a sign out that they were looking for a cook. The baked goods like cookies, scones, cakes were pretty good. Juices were not freshly squeezed, all store bought. For the price points, we were looking for a more fresh higher quality breakfast. It's obvious the revenue goes into the room & not the food. Management was nice but seemed a little too "sales" orientated with a lot of mention of their products available to buy & push for referrals. I would have liked to have seen other rooms, but owner said she didn't have the time even though a couple got a tour of the place the day before. Owner also charged the remainder of our tentative balance the day before we checked out. I thought that was a little hasty as standard courtesy is to pay during check out to avoid multiple charges which we had, didn't feel guest like & more that she really wanted to make sure she got paid! It was a nice stay but I probably won't stay again due to food & awkward management.

Innkeeper Response
At Prairieside Suites we take pride in serving all farm fresh, organic, free range chicken eggs delivered by our 81 year old egg-man Allen. We DO hand crack each egg into a Tupperware shaker that has a spinner inside to make them fluffy. Our guest love our Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice, along with our scones, cookies and cakes. All reservations are made with 50% deposit and 50% due upon arrival, just as it says on our website policies page. This makes sense since our guests come and go continually during their stay and often I don't see them on departure. Sometimes guests add gift area purchases or tips to their credit card before leaving, so we charge their card as requested. Actually, we're looking for a housekeeper [not a cook] right now because we need several each day between check out and check in to clean our rooms [we've been super busy]. Which is why I couldn't show our rooms, we had guests in them. She may not have realized that because we serve breakfast trays to our rooms along with serving guests at the table so not everyone eats together.


Great place to stay & exactly what we'd hoped for!!

3.6 on November 06, 2014

We stayed for our wedding night. It was easy to book our stay, beautiful setting & room, my wife was impressed with everything from the decor to the luxury bathroom amenities! Thank you for making our wedding night stress free & even more special!!

Innkeeper Response
You're sooo welcome :-o). We feel privileged to be part of such an important memory and so happy we could set the perfect "stage" for you to begin your married life together!


Lovely B&B

4.4 on October 29, 2014

We stayed in the Spanish Hacienda, which is in the basement of the main house. It was thoughtfully decorated and prepared to accommodate any convenience we might have. There were even "emergency toiletries" in the bathroom, which were unneeded, but an added touch that I haven't seen elsewhere. It was very quiet (another room was occupied down the hall from ours) and we were undisturbed. The Jacuzzi tub was the highlight of the room--big enough for two but not "oddly" placed in the room so as to be the main focal point. Breakfast was mediocre, but the coffee was fantastic, and it certainly was better than venturing elsewhere to have a meal before starting the day. I will definitely stay again, and plan to recommend it to friends. Top notch B&B.

Innkeeper Response
Awe, I'm sorry your breakfast wasn't perfect. Everyday we serve Breakfast 3 different ways: 1. A full hot candle lit 3 course breakfast is served in our dining room at 9:30 where guests can come together, enjoy conversation and great food. A full breakfast might consist of fresh fruit, juice & a scone, followed by our famous Quiche along side an English muffin topped with Canadian bacon, provolone and a slice of tomato plus your choice of coffee, tea or our homemade hot cocoa. Each morning is a delight and this is included for free with your room! 2. This same breakfast is served to your room. Some guests aren't early eaters and they sometimes use their in room microwave to heat & eat at a time that better for them. 3. Sometimes sleeping is as delicious as eating! So we offer an in room continental breakfast of Juice, yogurt, muffins, fruit plus granola & milk so you can snuggle, sleep late and eat whenever you like, on your own schedule, in the privacy of your room.


Spanish Hacienda

3.4 on October 16, 2014

This is a very clean B&B and rooms are beautifully theme decorated. Food was marginal. No creamer for coffee in the room. Unable to get receipts from staff, resulting in much confusion with billing, Bottles of shampoo and lotion are refilled for the next customer's use, but I prefer smaller complimentary individual bottles instead. When I took the used bottles, I was charged $15 and told by the owner "to read the label !" Nuts shouldn't be left out in rooms due to peanut allergies, although this B&B does ask about allergies prior to arriving. Recommend alternative "snack" be provided. Gift items like mugs are quite expensive, ex: mug $24++. Prefer at the high rates they charge that towels and wash clothes be refreshed daily. We were told to hang our wet towels on the heating rack and reuse them!

Innkeeper Response
Oh, shucks, every now and then something gets confusing. We had 4 ladies that took 2 rooms. The lady that made reservation deposited on both rooms and agreed to pay the balance upon arrival and have her friends reimburse her. That wasn't OK with some upon arrival. We do have a canister of creamer in every room and we supply half & half upon request. We have coffee, tea and homemade hot cocoa plus cookies & some baked treat [like a browner] in our kitchen available 24/7 plus we put chocolates and a glass covered nut cup in our rooms. We supply our rooms with large 8 once bottles of premium "fresh milk & shea butter" shampoo & lotion [we made the decision NOT to fill the earth with 1 once bottles. Our bottles are 8 times larger than what you'd be given in a hotel]. The label says...In an effort to be GREEN, we reuse THIS bottle. [They are available for purchase in our gift area].


Cute decorating but very expensive!

2.6 on October 16, 2014

I have stayed in many B&Bs and this one was very attractive, but our room was in the basement and our only window was a window well (decorated with plants). It was an extremely small bathroom and the towel warmer (very nice idea to have) was placed out in the bedroom area. The location of the frig and microwave was back in a very tight corner. The breakfasts were nothing special scrambled eggs, pancakes, and omelets. I've had hosts really show off their specialties with their breakfast. A friend travelling with me used up some of a bottle of the lotion and we used most of the shampoo. To not be wasteful and also not realizing these amenities were not complimentary, she took the remaining lotion and shampoo home. We were charged for these as they refill the bottles (unsanitary??). Considering the price of the room ($265/night), we thought this a bit much. We also each gave the cook/maid our charge cards upon arrival and my friend was given a receipt. I didn't receive a receipt because she didn't know if they took my particular card (which they didn't). We never saw the owner and the cook/maid didn't know how to take care of my payment. I asked for a receipt upon leaving, but couldn't get one. When I arrived home, I checked my account and I was charged for the entire room, not the half as expected and requested. There was a bit of a dispute, but the owner finally straightened it out and my friend paid me for her half of the room - her receipt was never submitted to her card company. All and all, not the best of experiences.

Innkeeper Response
This guest and the next review were here together & both stayed together in our Spanish Hacienda. You may read my responses to that review. For the convenience of our guests our towel warmer sits right next to the whirlpool tub, which is in the bedroom [so you don't have to walk naked and cold into the bathroom].


Nice B&B

3.0 on October 16, 2014

Nice location for a ladies get away. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Owner is engaged with guests seeking personal preferences to supply guest rooms with favorite drinks and snacks. They have a large selection of movies on DVDs along with a smaller collection of books in the suites. Breakfast was served on time and tasted great. Easy access to a wide variety of restaurants and to the expressway.

Innkeeper Response
Jody chose Prairieside Suites and brought 3 friends. They stayed in our English Cottage and Spanish Hacienda for a girlfriends get-away. So much fun...The next two reviews came from her friends, while they were here all were happy and enjoyed their rooms.


Great expectations

5 on October 03, 2014

We came to Grand Rapids for ArtPrize and our anniversary. It was a perfect weather weekend. Prairieside was a great place to stay in every way. The attention to detail was so impressive. I was amazed at all the "extra" niceties they added to the room, which is way beyond what you'd receive in a five star hotel (without a charge). Breakfast was delicious and the proprietors made us feel very at home. Since we were in Grand Rapids to experience ArtPrize, I wish I could have transplanted this B&B right downtown. The location is about 10 minutes by car. Still...loved our stay and would come back again!

Innkeeper Response
Art prize is soooo special. I'm so glad you could come, relax, unwind and participate in such a fabulous event. We love spoiling our guest with lovely, well appointed rooms. It is our goal to anticipate your needs and have everything you'll need or want when you stay. Thanks for noticing :-o)


I enjoyed being spoiled!

5 on October 02, 2014

Prairieside suites was beautiful! I loved everything about our stay. They really took the time in all of the details to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I really enjoyed the private entrance to our room. I would have to say the jacuzzi was my favorite part! I have already booked my next reservation!

Innkeeper Response
Well, I'll be looking forward to seeing you soon :-o). Many of you don't know that I'm an Interior Designer and a certified bathroom designer, so I'm very fussy about choosing our whirlpool tubs! I measure the outside of the tub, then the area you sit into on the bottom to make sure they will REALLY fit two people and I make sure they're deep so you'll have water over top of you while soaking.


Amazing Experience

5 on October 02, 2014

This was my first time at a B&B, but Prairieside set the bar high. Once we got there, it was like escaping into a world of relaxation. The place was beautiful and exceeded my expectations. I can't wait to go back!

Innkeeper Response
The goal of our entire staff is to exceed your expectations. Thanks so much for making our day!


Perfect for a Romantic Getaway!

4.8 on September 23, 2014

My husband and I recently stayed here for our wedding night. What a wonderful experience! We were a little hesitant booking our reservation because of the price, but it was such a perfect place to stay. The towel warmers, jacuzzi, breakfast served to the room, dual shower jets, available iHome and comfortable bed were amongst our favorite things! Also, we loved the keyless entry because it afforded so much privacy. The staff was incredibly friendly, and we will definitely return here in the future!

Innkeeper Response
We loved having you stay for you honeymoon. Remember we always say every couple has... two birthdays and an anniversary each year, so start planning your next escape!


Great time!

5 on September 23, 2014

We stayed in the Southern Mansion for our 11th anniversary. The room was amazing and comfortable. It felt wonderful to relax. The owners are super nice and awesome. We loved breakfast both days. We can't wait to return!

Innkeeper Response
The Southern Mansion has such an opulent feel because the jacuzzi is surrounded by columns and an antique crystal chandelier. Ooo La La!


John and Tracey Graham

4.0 on September 15, 2014

We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful atmosphere we enjoyed at Prairieside. We will definitely be back to pamper ourselves again!

Innkeeper Response
I like to think of our atmosphere as Friendly, yet professional. We like to welcome you to our home, let you know you how to reach us if you need anything and then give you privacy!


Beautiful B & B experience!

4.8 on September 08, 2014

A bit pricey, but worth every cent. This was our first B & B experience, and Prairieside may have spoiled us for any other B & Bs. Cheri, Paul and the rest of the staff were just great. The rooms are tastefully designed and have all the amenities you could want.

Innkeeper Response
Attention All Savy Shoppers----Check out our Monthly Specials Tab on our website www.prairieside.com and plan your next get-away while taking advantage of some savings.


Great B&B in a Great Location!

3.8 on September 05, 2014

My wife and I spent a long weekend at Prarieside Suites to celebrate her birthday. The B&B is actually located in Grandville, just outside of Grand Rapids. The town is big enough to have plenty of food options, but small enough to navigate easily. Also the location makes it easy to get to Grand Rapids or Lake Michigan. The B&B was kept clean, the owners were very friendly and the food was very good. We would definitely come back again!

Innkeeper Response
Yes, you can walk to shopping, restaurants, antiquing, the Grandville Pub and Osgoods brewery!


Honeymoon stay in the English Cottage

5 on August 31, 2014

My new Husband and I stayed in the English Cottage for our honeymoon and it was just perfect! The room was beautiful the house was gorgeous and the service was top notch. We had scheduled for breakfast in bed our first night and planned to eat in the dinning room with everyone else the last night and at 9pm the night before Cherri called to offer us another breakfast in bed free of charge so we could sleep in! Thats excellent service. We had a fantastic time and will be sure to make this an annual destination site for years to come.

Innkeeper Response
We do love to spoil all love birds!


The New York Loft

2.2 on August 15, 2014

Since I am limited to 2K characters - here is my short review Luxury: Jacuzzi Tub Starbucks Cofee and homemade Cocoa! Room Robes Outside swing! Pool Not Luxury: Being in the "house next door", it was different to read it then it was to experience it - we felt more like we were at a hotel then a part of a B&B experience, walking outside and around to get to the main house was sort of a pain. Coffee Maker - really needs upgraded to a Keurig, takes too long to brew Sound Proofing - we heard the couple in the beach suite (its apparent our bathrooms shared a wall) No bottled water in room, have to go to main house for filtered water. No choices as breakfast, I think we ate the same cheese and egg pie cut different for two of the mornings. Lack of interaction with B&B owners - we felt like we saw the staff more then we saw them - and they didn't enjoy breakfast with us (which we like) Cost of massage versus value of massage (tried to cancel in advance but felt guilty even through there is no cancellation policy on the site or written anywhere) Cleaning of room (we had issues which needed to be brought to Cheri's attention twice before taken care of and still resulted in a trip back to the main house for refil of Coffee) Website lacks information, has broken links. Really wanted to read about the house and owners Wasn't the Luxury we thought we were getting for the price we paid. Did enjoy ourselves, wont be back though.

Innkeeper Response
Wow, what can I say? We did our best to try to make them happy. As the owner I like to welcome guests to our home, show them how to find whatever they'll need and disappear giving them privacy. I do not sit down and eat breakfast with our guests [whenever I have the conversation is all about us...that's way too boring for those people staying multiple nights]! At breakfast I like hearing our guest talk together about where they went, ate, etc. I'm not the kind of Innkeeper who expects to be your new best friend, I feel you're here to relax and reconnect with your special someone. We have 7 beautiful guest rooms located in two homes that are only 24 feet apart. You can see where all rooms are located on the map we have on our virtual tours tab, it's also in each room description.


Outstanding

5 on August 08, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed two nights in the New York Loft and had an absolutely fantastic stay. There was not a detail missed in our suite, the main house or the grounds. The attention to detail (labels, heated bathroom fixtures, pop in refrigerator, movies galore, etc.) were the topper to the overall fantastic service. Each morning, we also enjoyed a wonderful homemade breakfast with unbeatable hospitality. This is the top B&B at which we have stayed, will spread the word to friends, and will absolutely return.

Innkeeper Response
This is why I call this a LOVE business. You give love and it comes right back to you!


French Riviera

4.4 on August 01, 2014

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and we had a wonderful experience ! This one night stay getaway was something I was so excited to get to, I couldn't wait for our reserved date. The room was absolutely gorgeous, it had everything we could have wanted and needed right there. The canopy bed was my absolute favorite, and it was very very comfortable. I can't wait to come back, and while I want to stay in the French Riviera again, I would love to try every room! Great hidden treasure in Grandville. I have lived here all of my life and never knew it was there.

Innkeeper Response
Shhhh, don't tell, we have a super comfortable, king size, thick, cushy, custom mattress set [that made just for us] in every one of our luxury guest suites. So you can try all 8 of our rooms and still enjoy a wonderful nights sleep.


Excellent

5 on July 28, 2014

A wonderful getaway. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Innkeeper Response
We're here, when you're ready. Maybe you'll want to be the first to stay in our Bali Bungalow? It should be available for New Years Eve.


Santa Barbara Beach House

3.8 on July 13, 2014

Our very first time at a bed and breakfast - loved it! Cheri and her staff were attentive to our needs but we always felt we had complete privacy. Our room was very nice, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Loved the robes and the homemade cocoa. Landscaping was very well done, lush and beautiful.

Innkeeper Response
Our guest suites at Prairieside have been designed for guest privacy. Our rooms are build with TWO walls between them with a 1" air gap [so sound doesn't transfer]. Then both walls are insulated, we've applied sound board facing each room and then they're drywalled. At Prairieside suites we are dedicated to giving our guests the best rooms!


another great stay at Prairie Suites

5 on June 27, 2014

My husband and I have enjoyed two terrific stays at this delightful place (the designation B&B doesn't do justice to the size and luxuriousness of the individually decorated rooms).

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the compliment. We do show several pictures of each room and offer virtual tours too but guests still tell us it's even more beautiful in person!


Prairieside Suites!

4.8 on June 21, 2014

My wife and I decided to take a little trip without the kids and chose Prairieside. What a GREAT place! The breakfasts were amazing, the rooms were above awesome and the grounds were beautiful. The operators of the B&B were some of the nicest people we have met. They wanted to take care of anything we needed. We were actually the first couple to take out the new tandem bike! We had a blast and will be back for sure!

Innkeeper Response
Awe, you two were a lot of fun. I'm so glad you had time to focus on each other [without the kids]. Same time next year?


Best Bed and Breakfast ever

5 on June 11, 2014

I loved the fireplace, we had a great time. Very relaxing. The breakfast was amazing. Loved the swing, and Jacuzzi. Cherri was very nice!!!

Innkeeper Response
We love to please our guests, who arrive tired and leave refreshed!


Romantic and Beautiful Room

4.6 on June 11, 2014

My husband booked 3 nights in the Beach House for my 35th birthday. We loved the room and it looked exactly like the online pictures. We loved the jacuzzi tub and body jets in the shower and the heated toilet seat. We preferred the hot breakfast delivered to our room but only paid to do that one morning. The food was good. We also enjoyed a couples massage our first night there. The BNB is in the perfect location. We found many things to do and places to eat all within about 10 minutes. We even went for a bike ride one morning on the 2 person bike. The flower gardens outside the buildings are absolutely beautiful. Cheri is a very talented lady and it was a pleasure to spend the weekend at her home. We look forward to returning. Jason and Tiffany.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks Jason & Tiffany, we're so happy to be a part of your birthday celebration. Isn't it amazing how we're so close to everything...restaurants, movie theaters, shopping, lakeshore are all 3 to 20 minutes away. The hardest thing is making yourself leave a beautiful room!


Sweet getaway!

5 on June 09, 2014

Such an beautiful place to stay! The service, food grounds, rooms, owners were exceptional. It was the perfect anniversary ever!

Innkeeper Response
Life is what "YOU" make of it. So glad you included us in your perfect anniversary :-o)! Come see us when you can float in the pool!


Our second stay in the Tuscan Villa!

4.8 on May 16, 2014

This was our second stay at the Tuscan Villa and our fourth stay overall. We have never been disappointed with the cleanliness, catering to our needs, accommodations, and wonderful food! Cheri and Paul are great hosts, and very pleasant. Prior to arrival your favorite Coke product will be cold in the room refrigerator. Every room has been upgraded, as Paul never stops improving what is already wonderful. The experience will leave you refreshed and wanting to return!

Innkeeper Response
Awe, we have the most wonderful guests. We intentionally designed 8 themed luxury suites so our guests could come many times and still have a new experience.


Our second stay in the Tuscan Villa!

4.8 on May 14, 2014

We have been here four times. The hosts are wonderful, the service is great, the rooms are clean, the food is prepared by a separate staff person who makes sure you are catered to, and you are asked for your soft drink of choice before arrival and it is cold in your refrigerator. This was our "quick call and see if we can stay" visit as we were overtired and had to take a son to the Grand Rapids airport, and decided a 10 minute drive across town beat an hour-long trip down 131. Others are cheaper, but they are cheaper. We had the pick of all the rooms (it was Mother's Day!) and went with the Tuscan Villa again as we love it. We wish it was our bedroom.

Innkeeper Response
Many of our guests have a favorite room but I know that it's mostly about the wonderful memories they made there in the past when they stayed with us. [So Sweet]. We take same day reservations. So never feel bad about calling or booking online at the last minute. Seize the moment, run away and HIDE OUT at our lovely B&B.

Come see us again soon.


Great place for a Romantic Getaway.

4.6 on April 15, 2014

We stayed in the New York Loft Suite, newly decorated in a lovely modern style. The suite was spacious and immaculately clean, with lots of lovely finishing touches from a wine cooler in the room to coffee making facilities and their own tasty hot chocolate mix. Huge 2 person tub in the room and a bathroom to die for with heated floor and toilet seat. We were looking for a b&b with a nice new modern feel and this certainly exceeded our expectations. We've already talked about what room we want to try on our next visit.

Innkeeper Response
We're so happy you chose Prairieside Suites for your special birthday celebration AND that you felt nurtured by our urban/edgy New York Loft with lots of wonderful amenities.


Doesn't get any better than this!!!

5 on April 03, 2014

This was my third time at Prairie Side Suites. I absolutely love this place. The rooms are beautifully decorated with lots of special extras. From the awesome jacuzzi tub to the heated toilet seat. The breakfast is delicious and prepared to your own liking. The innkeepers and staff are so friendly and welcoming. It is so hard to leave and I just can't wait to go back!

Innkeeper Response
We're blessed with such great & loyal guests. We look forward to seeing you again. Remember...as a couple, you have two birthdays & an anniversary each year. So come and try a different room each time :-o)?


Beautiful place

4.8 on March 16, 2014

We stayed 4 days at Prairieside, beautiful place, everything is excellent. The place is very clean and the breakfast and service are exceptional.

Innkeeper Response
It was our honor to have you start your married life with a honeymoon in our French Riviera Suite. This room has a very romantic canopy bed draped with fabric plus it's a VERY QUIET, lower level [end of the hall]room with lots of sound proofing and a room darkening shade. It's great to snuggle, sleep, watch movies and not even care what time of the day or night it is! You make your own schedule.


Lovely Loft

5 on February 18, 2014

We stayed in the New York Loft for Valentines 2014.. When we checked in till we checked out 3 days later, We were treated like we were royalty. Definitely be back.

Innkeeper Response
And if I remember right Kevin proposed to Crystal and SHE said YES!


Wonderful 25th Wedding Anniversary stay

5 on December 03, 2013

The Prairieside Suites was unbelievable. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and wanted something more upscale than a hotel room. This was perfect. We stayed in the Southern Mansion room which was beautifully decorated in blue & white. There was a Jacuzzi tub for two with candlelight. A table for two with chilled wine and a special treat. Coffee and hot cocoa around the clock with cookies and brownies available from the kitchen. I found the whole place to be impeccably clean and already decorated for the holiday season. The location is close to anything you would like. We went to the Meijer Gardens and also to the new casino, Gun Lake. Breakfast was like eating at a 5 star restaurant. I hope to stay here again soon.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for choosing Prairieside for your special occassion. Our rooms are set up for privacy! Our Southern Mansion has a king size bed that was hand crafted and built for this room. The oversized two person jacuzzi has a granite tub deck with four columns, antique chandelier and mirror for the candles to reflect into...very romantic! Take a peek http://www.prairieside.com/jacuzzi-spa-suites/southern-mansion


Much Needed........

4.6 on November 12, 2013

We stayed at Prairieside Suites for our 23rd wedding anniversary. The stay was wonderful. Our room could not have been better. The location was fantastic. We loved the heated floors, heated towel racks and the Jacuzzi tub. The breakfast were fantastic! Was very quiet and peaceful. We did not use the pool facilities (out of season). Would book again!

Innkeeper Response
It'S ALMOST pool season,time for a return trip?


Our Escape !!!

5 on November 10, 2013

Thank you so much Paul and Sheri for being such great hosts. Your place is amazing just like the both of you. We always enjoy coming back and always feel so comfortable and welcomed . Don't change anything it's just the perfect get away. Mike and Deb C

Innkeeper Response
This is definitely a "LOVE" business. We are so lucky to have such wonderful guests. Mike and Deb invited us to their "Lake" house and we're looking forward to a ride on their boat.


Celebrating 4 Year Anniversary at a B&B (Praireside Suites)

4.8 on November 02, 2013

Our stay was great. The Tuscan Suite and main house were very clean. Breakfast was great and the message service was excellent. The staff was gracious enough to show us the other 2 suites that were no occupied. I would say you can't go wrong with any of the suites you select.

Innkeeper Response
You're so right, every room is designed to have all the same amenities. The decorating and colors set them apart. Check them all out online www.prairieside.com and see if ONE talks to YOU more than another.


The stay was amazing!!!!

5 on September 20, 2013

Cheri and Paul are amazing inkeepers. the place is amazing and I cant wait to stay again.

Innkeeper Response
Is it time for another visit to Prairieside Suites Luxury Bed and Breakfast? Have you picked the room you'll stay in next?


Great Experience

4.8 on August 21, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for our 12th Anniversary. The Southern mansion was a beautiful room. The service was awesome. The inn owners were so nice and they made us feel at home. We got a really nice cake treat for our celebration, which tasted awesome. Sheri was very helpful with giving us idea's for dinners and things to do. My husband enjoyed his free massage that came with out 2 night st ay. We will defiantly come back someday and try out some of the other rooms.

OR you can even come back and try the same room...we totally remodeled it! Check it out http://www.prairieside.com/rooms/class/southern-mansion1.htm and tell me what you think!


Hakuma Matata

5 on June 21, 2013

Praireside suites is a must for any couple that want to just get away from the reality of life. From the time you walk through the front door to you leave you will feel the saying, “Hakuma Matata” is the only words to describe this place. I love to camp and have a nice glass of wine on Lake Michigan and watch a sunset. We did not get a chance to go to Lake Michigan this time, but your only 20 minutes from Holland, MI. Sheri greeted and us and gave us a tour. I was just so surprise at the detail of this place from how the border of the wallpaper going up the stairs to just all the bake goods to the wonderful breakfast Jan prepared. With the soft Ralph Lauren sheets, to the soft robe. You would think with all the suites you would hear others, we felt we were in our own world. You don’t really need to bring anything but your clothes and tooth brush. My husband surprised me and we stayed here to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. We will be back! I have stayed at one other bed and breakfast, but I don’t think anyone could top this one! They are always updating or even adding another suite. The outside gardens are just beautiful with a in ground pool, swing, and hammock for two. The pictures are only a glimpse of what this place is like. You don’t have to worry about the pictures being better than the actually place. I was not looking forward to the tour, I wanted to just get to our room and spend time with my husband, but the tour was short and Cheri explained everything you have access to so you feel right at home! If I had couple suggestions it would be to have surround sound with the TV and a stereo so you could hear the music and TV from the Jacuzzi, but this was the only thing I could find to complain about if you want to consider this a complaint! This is my little piece of heaven with angels!

Innkeeper Response
Awe, so glad we exceeded your expectations. When they simplify surround sound WE WILL GET IT in all the suites but I don't want guests to become frustrated with the electronics. Many want to disconnect from the world and reconnect with each other. Hope to see you soon.


Wonderful Experience...

5 on May 13, 2013

Beautiful, elegant, and comfortable.

Innkeeper Response
That is what we strive for. We want to give you an elegant experience, but at the same time, it's very important that you feel comfortable. I want you to feel that we have anticipated your needs and we have everything ready for you in your room.


Cheri and Paul score!

4.8 on January 30, 2013

My wife recently reserved the Tuscan Villa for us at Prairieside for a birthday surprise for me. We have previously stayed in the English Cottage, the French Riviera, and the Southern Mansion. We would not keep going back if it were not for the wonderful accommodations (partly due to Cheri's other specialty of interior design), superb service (they bend over backwards to make you happy, providing your choice of beverage in the room, serving custom food choices for those with issues) and over the top friendliness. We have gone to B&Bs in New Hampshire, Maine, Philadelphia, and Kalamazoo, where we live. No one has come close to what Cheri and Paul provide. Now that we know that there are two new suites across the courtyard, we have three more to explore in the future. Looking forward to another escape!

Innkeeper Response
Life is an adventure that should be shared with someone you love. It's a privilege for us to create romantic spa rooms for couples to enjoy and reconnect. Come and try them ALL.


Fabulous Stay!

5 on January 10, 2013

Beautiful home, first-class amenities, delicious food. Possibly the best B&B we've ever visited.

Innkeeper Response
GOSH, it does my heart GOOD to HEAR that. Thanks for making my day.


A piece of heaven

5 on November 26, 2012

If you want to be pampered and want for nothing....this is the place to be. Paul & Cherie have thought of everything and more that you ever need or want. Everything thing from fine linens, heated toliet seats, beautiful rooms, breakfast for king, serene environment, special desserts set out for guests, impeciable rooms and cleanliness, heated towels, awesome showers and hot tubs, friendly loving inn keepers, etc. We have stayed at least 6 times now. Absolutely love teh place. Outstanding customer service. They do everything they can to make your stay an awesome experience.

Innkeeper Response
Love these guest, we're so lucky to be their hosts.


Bring back the Bed and Breakfast!

4.6 on November 26, 2012

My fiance and I just stayed at Prairieside in their New York Loft. We are young (him 33 and me 29) from Chicago and are fairly modern and tech savvy. The concept of the bed and breakfast for younger generations is not always seen as a romantic getaway. My fiance and I had visions of sitting at a table with pseudo-grandparents and feeling that we couldn't enjoy our time together. I searched all over Bed and Breakfast dot com as well as Google to find the best B&B in the Midwest. The first thing that attracted us to Prairieside was the website. It was one of the only B&Bs that had a professional website and stayed current with social media. That tells a lot about their business and means a lot to us to see that. We looked at the various rooms they had and I opted for the New York Loft as it was the most modern looking... however do not think that these rooms are anything but modern. Upon walking into the B&B, we were greeted by Cheri who offered us fresh baked goods and showed us around the common areas. She showed us to our room and shared the various amenities offered. The rooms decor was awesome. As friendly and helpful as the staff were, they also left you alone and weren't all over you so you could enjoy your time with your loved one without feeling smothered by staff. We paid an extra charge for some beautiful candles in our room that were really nice. The breakfast was very filling and had a good variety of food and fresh fruit. I want to tell my friends about this place but I also want to sort of keep it to myself as "our" little getaway. Anyone who visits Cheri and crew will enjoy themselves. Thanks Cheri!


One night stay at Prairireside Suites

4.6 on November 17, 2012

Our stay at Prairieside was just perfect :)! We wanted something cozier, more romantic that a night at a big luxury hotel... And the home-like environment of Prairiside was just what we wanted. The room was cozy and beautifully decorated and it had everything we needed. The kitchen/living room was perfect for a sweet treat in the middle of the night--just like you would have it at home with your dear one. Thanks to everyone at Prairiesuites for making this happen!


Thank You so much Paul and Cheri,

5 on November 05, 2012

Again we had the pleasure of staying at Prairieside Suites. What a place! It is just perfection and your wonderful hospitality makes it a perfect place to escape to. We hope to be back soon. Thanks so much for everything. Mike and Deb from Torch Lake


Celebration of our birthdays and 20th wedding anniversary:)

4.4 on November 03, 2012

After having some unforeseen circumstance, my wife and I were unable to go on our cruise. But we needed that getaway to reconnect and celebrate. This place was the best B&B we have ever been to. Well worth the 6 hour drive from the Cincinnati, OH area!!! My wife is a fanatic about cleanliness and the white glove test was much to her surprise. We stayed in the Southern mansion. Absolutely worth the money for our 2 day stay. We didn't want to leave. Food was phenomenal. Staff were pleasant and helpful! We will be returning guests to their many other rooms. Highly recommend and no other B&B will come close to this experience!!! Great job~and THANK YOU


If you need to getaway...This is the place to stay!

5 on September 21, 2012

AMAZING ROOMS! A little pricey, and pretty far from macomb michigan lol but it was sooo worth it. The full body massages were great and soo relaxing. It was above and beyond what I expected. Everyone was soo pleasant and the service was perfect. No one was all up under you, but they made sure that you were comfortable at all times and if you needed anything. Great privacy and great way to getaway. The rooms are renivated to perfection and they all have different themes to fit your mood :) The breakfast was a nice touch and so welcoming. I and my boyfriend completely enjoyed our stay and I am so glad I found this hidden treasure :) We will be returning again I am sure of it!


Fantastic Mini Honeymoon

4.8 on September 07, 2012

First, it was very nice that Prairieside was flexible with the length of their stay. We looked at literally dozens of B&Bs before we found one that would let us stay only Sunday and Monday of a holiday weekend. The others all required a Friday - Monday booking. When we arrived Cheri greeted us and showed us around the place. She took us up to the Beach House room where we stayed and it was wonderfully decorated and spacious. I think the thing that stands out most are all the little details that they have thought of. Of course the bed was comfortable, it was clean, and the whirlpool was awesome - but that is pretty much expected. Cheri and her staff had stocked the room with everything you might need and not find other places: cheese cutter, bottle openers, wine chiller, comfortable robes, heated towel racks, dishes, high quality soaps and lotion, a comfortable seating area, individual dimming lights on each side of the bed, labeling all the remote controls so you know what is what, a power strip attached to the desk so you can get all your electrical gadgets plugged in at the same time, etc. Breakfast was great both mornings of our stay. For the first morning we paid a little extra to have breakfast delivered to our room. We got cheesy scrambled eggs along with french toast and fresh fruit. Everything was delicious. The second morning we ate in the main dining room and had omelets along with an exceptional blueberry scone. I have only two tiny critiques. One, Cheri maintains a file of restaurants, attractions, etc. in the Grandville / Grand Rapids area. While this is great, we thought it might be more helpful if it was organized by categories such as "delivery options" "fine dining" "casual dining" rather than lumping everything together alphabetically. It was a little hard to find what we were looking for. Two, I though the quality of the coffee could have been a little higher. Those things said, it was a great trip and we plan on going back!


Great for Wedding Night

5 on September 01, 2012

Very great B&B. This was our first time in a B&B, we stayed only one night for our wedding night. It was a wonderful time. The room was excellent (Southern Mansion) with so many little details we wouldn't have ever thought would be necessities. The breakfast in the dining room was very delicious. We will definitely consider staying here again in the future!


Michigans best kept secret

5 on August 23, 2012

I am super late but myself and my boyfirend and another couple stayed here back in July and we were in awe from the time we arrived up until the time we left. We were running a bit behind sch on the check in date and Cheri made accomadations for us to still get a tour of the INN as well ask any questions that we may needed to be answered. It was not a rush job since we arrived at least an hour behind sch. I fell in love with this inn I stayed in the Southern Mansion and it was PERFECT so cute ,clean and romantic. I will def be a regular at this inn the website is great but you really have to go to see just how romantic and magical this place is. Thank you so much for this great experince. Tashia.


What an amazing place!

5 on August 07, 2012

They definately have the wow factor going on at Prairieside Suites in Grandville. Everything about this place was amazing, clean, presentable, very personable, and such a warm & helpful staff. We staying in the Southern Mansion room for two nights 3 days and ordered the hot breakfast to our room. The food is amazing, they spare no expense in decorating these rooms. For our first bed & breakfast experience it was amazing! I will definately visit many more times and am glad we chose Prairieside for our romantic weekend getaway!


Anniversary Get Away

4.8 on July 25, 2012

We visited Prairieside for a 2 night get away to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the Santa Barbara Beach house. What an amazing and beautiful room Cheri, the innkeeper and designer, walked us through everything. They have a wealth of knowledge about the area and things to do. They have a drawer full of maps, directions and menus. It was all right there at our fingertips. Loved the room with the relaxing colors, the heated floor and toilet seat as well as the tub. The food each day was wonderful. They really listened to what we didn't like and adaptd accordingly. This is a place we will definitely go to again and refer to our friends.


BabyMoon!

5 on July 15, 2012

This was the best bed and breakfast place ever! It was everything we needed before our baby arrives. The Beach House was awesome and beautiful! Cheri was amazing and the cake and hot cocoa was beyond delicious! It was in a very secluded spot and the jacuzzi was amazing! Overall, this trip was fantastic! and the breakfast was great! No complaints at all


The most relaxing and long lost home away from home!!!

4.6 on July 15, 2012

This place really sets the food for romance. Everything you need is right in the room for you. The service is wonderful. The people there make you feel like you are a part of them and and they still give you your privacy. Cheri ad Paul and all the ladies have put so much thought love and kindness into this place you will NEVER EVER want to go home. The breakfast is very very very good. I mean it is so romantic and they give you a private tour. I can not forget the massage ladies are wonderful and the way they massage is something that you canot read about you have to feel for yourself. People! come and relax and eat breakfast a prairieside its sooooooo worth it!


Just Darling!

5 on June 30, 2012

I absolutely enjoyed our night of stay at this darling B&B. It was my first time at a B&B and had no idea what to expect... and this was beyond what I expected! My now fiancé made the reservations and he did not tell me anything it was a huge surprise! We were greeted with a smile and we left with a smile! No detail was left out and everything was very clean and neat. The accommodations were fantastic, we stayed in the French Riviera Room which is located in the main house in the basement area. As soon as you open the door to the room it is breath taking and you forget everything else. I was not only surprised by the room but the fact that we got engaged on the night that we stayed. He asked me to be his wife in downtown Grand Rapids which is just minutes from the inn. We will be back in the future no questions asked!


A luxurious, quiet GEM

5 on June 26, 2012

My loved one and I came here sight unseen for a single overnight stay in the French Riveria room on a short visit to this part of Michigan. Cheri was a JOY to work with over the phone and email. She was incredibly accommodating-and when she learned of our interest in wines and wineries, she sent us an amazing thorough list of local places we might enjoy (complete with directions from Prairieside, hours of the wineries, and little handwritten details about their operations)! Our suite was gorgeous, the whole house was gorgeous. And even though it was full of guests, we never knew it until breakfast, it was so quiet and private!. The gardens were beautiful, the house welcoming, clean, and open for lounging and exploration. It really was exactly like being in a private, incredibly beautiful and well kept home. And Cheri is a stickler for luxurious, warm details...from the warmed towels and popcorn in the room, to the gentle, scents that wafted through the home, to the fresh baked cookies and lemon bars with coffee, tea, and homemade cocoa that she kept available to us all of the time, to the gourmet breakfast she made, to the insanely comfortable bed and soft, soft linens...it was all very pampering, over-the-top with comfort. This is a very exclusive inn, but yet it's not terribly expensive, and not at all snooty. It is just so, so warm-clearly built with love, and with the customer in mind. We'll be back, as often as possible!


Fabulous!

5 on February 06, 2012

We've stayed at several B&B's over the years and this one by far excells over the others in every area! The decor (inside & out, & gardens), wonderful bed, soundproof, comfortable, marvelous food -- wow!


Great Place to Stay!

4.8 on February 03, 2012

We stayed in the French Riviera Room. It was beautiful and relaxing. The staff worked hard to make you feel at home. We also upgraded to a massage package and it was worth the money. We recommend you giving Prarieside Suites B&B a try!


OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO VACATION

5 on January 12, 2012

This was our second stay but won't be our last. We loved everything about it!


Second visit and we will be back!

4.0 on November 27, 2011

Absolutely fabulous. The room was beyond belief. The breakfast was double top notch. This our second trip there and it was. I had to stop because there are not enough words to describe the differences in the decore of the rooms. We stayed in the Spanish Hacienda last summer and picked the Tuscan Villa this time. What a great room choice. The rooms are awesome and the staff is wonderfull. Breakfast is beyond what I expected. I had to take a picture of the apple swan that was presented with breakfest this morning. I will be back hopefully sooner that later, but within the year. Love this place Dan & Diane, Lansing MI.


An awesome weekend in the Grand Rapids area

4.6 on November 20, 2011

Cheri and her staff did an excellent job making our weekend a wonderful time. Cheri is great at taking care of the little details that many of the inn owners we have stayed with don't always see as important. Pampered was an accurate word for us at this inn. We had access to all the comforts of a great B&B like home-made snacks, a great movie selection, and a complete file of information for a large variety of activities and places around the Grand Rapids area. The room had lots of amenities most inns don't think to include like your own wine accessories in the room, heated towel racks and toilet seats in the bathroom, and electronic locks on the doors so you don't have to mess with keys and remember to return them when you leave. Cheri's staff was also very friendly and took care of any concerns we had. I also appreciated the variety of items for breakfast both mornings. I am grateful for the staff making sure all of the food did not have items my wife is allergic to. I am looking to staying there again.


Relaxing and quiet

5 on November 15, 2011

We loved the place. Very relaxing and quiet. Can't wait to go back. Hopefully for two nights next time instead of one.


very relaxing and inviting

4.6 on November 15, 2011

As soon as you walked in the door the pampering started. From homemade hot chocolate and cookies to a relaxing room. Loved everything about our stay.


Amazing!!!!!

4.8 on November 14, 2011

We stayed for a post wedding get away! It was AMAZING. All of the staff were so friendly, the room was beautiful, and I loved that it was sooo close to everything. We will definatly be back!


Our first time at a B&B

5 on November 14, 2011

The Spanish Hacienda was clean, beautiful and we found the decor to be very homey and inviting. We chose a B&B over another lodging alternative because my husband wanted to give me something different for my 50th birthday. Breakfast was very delicious and we loved how quiet our room was. Their friendly staff helped you if you needed something but otherwise left you alone.


Loved it!

5 on November 07, 2011

Once again, we had a wonderful stay at Prairieside Suites. What a treat!


very beutiful,clean,relaxing stay

4.0 on October 14, 2011

My first b&b experience,me and my husband 2 yr wedding aniversary.I was like our own lil hideaway.Staff and owner very nice and helpful.We will come back.


Anniversary Getaway

5 on October 10, 2011

Room, food, service, everything was fantastic. A very quiet and relaxing time away. Truly enjoyed meeting Cheri and Paul.


Fantastic!

4.8 on October 08, 2011

Cheri and Paul and the team were fantastic. My mom and I have stayed around the country in b&b's and this experience was one of our favorites. It is all about your happiness at this inn...and we felt at home. We can't wait to go back and also eat at the rainbow grill again...a suggestion from Cheri and Paul.....outstanding!


Our Anniversary Stay

4.0 on October 06, 2011

Prairieside was a peaceful, clean, friendly place to relax. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary there and it was romantic.


If I wanted to be rushed, I'd stay at the Marriott

2.0 on October 04, 2011

This was completely a disappointing experience. My husband and I were celebrating both our anniversary and his birthday and this place looked so promising from the pictures but the overall experience left me desiring another vacation. The place is gorgeous and the room was very nice. Breakfast was also nice. What was not nice was the feeling of being pushed around. From the moment I checked in, I felt like a number. The hostess (not the innkeeper) showed me very quickly through the inn even though I explained my husband was waiting in the car, rushed me down to my suite and that was that. Despite their advertisement about helping celebrate special occasions, they did neither. I specifically mentioned that this trip was for our anniversary and my husband's birthday but we were not treated special in any way. And with breakfast, I was disappointed, despite being asked what I wanted, to find that my request for no cheese was summarily ignored. The food was good but that ignoring of details seemed to be the theme for the trip. There were bits of food stuck to the channel guide which was gross. Also, I found the tip envelope included in the guest guide to be completely tacky. Finally, when we went to check out, I was honestly put off. The innkeeper asked me very quickly about my stay and then immediately tried to sell me on an B&B book that featured their inn. AND then she also asked (really told) my husband and I to vote for her inn and presented us with fully filled out ballots and pens to sign them. Excuse me? I was frankly disgusted. This is the second most expensive inn I've stayed at and the worst experience I've ever had. I felt both rushed and ignored. I do not recommend this place to anyone and will be on the hunt for something more welcoming the next time I'm in Grand Rapids.

Innkeeper Response
Oh, gosh - this is Cheri the owner and innkeeper - and we're so disappointed when we can't please everyone. This couple was very sweet and looked like they were enjoying themselves in the French Riviera (one of our most private suites). At Prairieside Suites, we appreciate ALL feedback, but wish they would have spoken up during their stay instead of writing a negative review when now we don't have the opportunity to "fix" anything. With this specific guest, we assumed she wanted an Express Check-in because she specifically said her husband was in the car waiting and we always try to accommodate each guests unique situation. But after reading this review, we are going to start asking guests if they want an Express Check-in or our normal "House Welcome". Our spa rooms are professionally designed to pamper you during your special occasion. We are the owners and innkeepers, but the home, suites, and packages are all in place to set the stage to celebrate your special occasion. It's also important for us to honor the gift of privacy for our guests. This couple was here for a one-night stay and ordered breakfast to their room, which leaves little time for interaction. And of course, if breakfast wasn't perfect, we would have loved the opportunity to bring them a new one if they had notified us. We are always available on the other end of the phone and we always encourage guests to call us with questions or concerns. We know it’s important to do the little extras! That’s why we have additional pampering services and packages available for order -- from couple's massage to romance packages -- we're here to handle the details!


A Delight!

5 on August 18, 2011

Cheri's livelihood is making sure your stay is the best it can be and then better the next time! We didn't need anything! We didn't WANT for anything, except the time alone we had come to seek..and easily found in the luxury of their B&B!


A Wonderful Stay--Thank you!

4.8 on August 13, 2011

We were only able to stay one evening at Prairieside because we were only passing through to another location. However, we would have loved to have additional time to enjoy this wonderful bed and breakfast. Our room, the Southern Mansion, was extremely clean, large, felt very secluded, and was extravagent. The room's large whirlpool bath and hand-crafted king-size bed are only the beginning of the amenities available in this room. Cheri and Paul have thought of about anything you might want to create and enjoy a truly romantic get-away. Their house was beautiful. Landscaping was something to behold, and the property provides a private pool and lounging area. Truly would have liked to have spent more time at this treasure. If we get back to the area, we will definitely be stopping to enjoy more pampering at Prairieside. Would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to others. Only gave the dining experience a "4" because we asked for a continental breakfasat so we could leave early the next morning. It was a very nice breakfast, even though we could not stay to enjoy the home cooking. Suspect their breakfast would have been delicious after tasting the delicious treats they left for us the evening before! Enjoyed our stay!


A Must Visit.

4.4 on August 10, 2011

This was an amazing place to stay. A definate place to go and spend some time. They thought of almost everything. The tub was extra large and the shower was amazing and the bed was comfortable. The private entrance made us feel like we were in a private condo and not someones home.


Prairieside Suites in Grandville, Michigan

4.0 on July 15, 2011

Prairieside Suites were beautiful, and well located in the Grand Rapids Michigan area. Our room was luxurious, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The gardens and pool area were beautiful. We had great meals both at the suites and conveniently located resturants. The staff made sure there was information and maps to both places to eat and sight seeing locations. Beautiful Lake Michigan was a short drive away, and so are magnificant Meyer Gardens. We enjoyed a couples massage. This was truly a great way to celebrate our 40th anniversary!


Fantastic!!! Can't wait to go back!!!!!

5 on July 11, 2011

Cheri and Paul were so friendly and accommodating. Our room was beyond clean, comfortable, and spacious. We loved our stay at Prairieside and we can't wait to return!


Very nice place

4.2 on July 09, 2011

This was our first B&B experience, but certainly not our last! The place itself was very nice and provided a very romantic getaway, and the service was terrific. Breakfast the first day we personally enjoyed much more than the second day, but both were still delicious. Thanks for a great weekend and we can't wait to come back and try out a different room experience.


We loved it!

5 on July 06, 2011

My husband and I stayed over the 4th of July weekend. We had a great time. Our son was out of town with family, and we decided to jump on the chance to have a weekend alone. We both had a very relaxing time. We loved our room, which was the French Rivera. The staff was very friendly, and made us feel right at home. I wish I could have transported the room we stayed in back home with me. I will recommend this B&B to family and friends. The cocoa was wonderful


“Incredible experience--we'll be back”

5 on July 06, 2011

What a place! Nestled in a quaint town of Dutch heritage, we thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful bed and breakfast. We were met by Paul upon our arrival. He gave us a tour to make sure we could take advantage of all the amenities including fresh baked goodies, a huge library of movies, home made hot chocolate, and pool. After that, he was around in case we needed anything but left us to our privacy as much as we wanted. Our room was beautiful and provided us with anything we could have desired for our romantic get-away. We slept well on the comfortable king bed with magnet mattress pad, had our choice of coffee, tea or hot chocolate in the room; there was a desk filled with any office supplies we could imagine, wireless internet, robes, in-room refrigerator. Cleanliness is important to us but we didn't find a speck of dust anywhere. The breakfasts were large and delicious and served by delightful staff. (Paul's bacon beats all.) We met Cheri later who is a delightful hostess. They were both very knowledgeable about things to do and places to eat in the area which helped us make the most of our time there. We spent a day in one of the towns on Lake Michigan and had a terrific meal in Grand Rapids. We had a wonderful time away and would heartily recommend this place to anyone as a perfect place to have a wonderful getaway.

A weekend in Paridise

5 on May 08, 2011

The weekend that we stayed for my wifes birthday was beyond our imanignation we were awe-struck. Sheri and Paul bent over backwards to make it as awesome as it was. If you do not go here you are missing a real treet from the comfort to the food we are definately going back and soon......


Relaxin, Romantic

5 on April 25, 2011

I will never forget our stay here, hope to someday visit again!


Weekend Escape!

4.2 on April 10, 2011

Beautiful inn with warm, comfortable rooms. Very romantic with unexpected amenities; heated tile floor in bathroom, heated towel rack, wine cooler. Very attentive and friendly staff. I will definitely recommend Prairieside to friends and family. I hope to plan a return visit.


A true gem!

5 on March 27, 2011

A truley beautiful B&B! Very friendly staff, a warm welcome, lots of extras...they go the extra mile! You will not be disappointed.


EXCELLENT B&B!! We'll definitely be coming back!

5 on February 02, 2011

Prairieside was absolutely amazing! We stayed in the French Riviera and it was luxurious, warm, and comfortable. When we arrived Cheri welcomed us and showed us around the site. Not only are the common rooms cozy, but they also have baked treats all the time along with homemade hot coco. The room was FANTASTIC! We enjoyed every second we were in there. Not to mention, breakfast was delicious and the entire staff was amazing! I'd recommend getting the couples massages and then exploring what Grandville/Grand Rapids has to offer. If you're looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway... I'd say look no further! Prairieside has it all!


Delighted

5 on January 09, 2011

We have absolutely enjoyed our get-away at Prairieside Suites. The spacious Tuscan Villa is amazing, with a whirlpool tub, comfy bed, and many other wonderful amenities—even heated floors, towels, and toilet seat in the bathroom! Our hostess, Cheri, thinks of every little detail, and you must try the homemade hot cocoa available right in your room. Our breakfast was the perfect start to our day and cheerfully prepared and served by Victoria. We highly recommend Prairieside Suites and wish Cheri and Paul a happy and prosperous new year!


Wonderful and relaxing getaway

4.6 on January 03, 2011

We stayed at Prairieside Suites for 2 nights during December 2010 and loved our time there. Cheri was extremely welcoming and showed us around the building - they have hot cocoa, tea, cake, cookies always available and they made a nice evening snack. The bedroom was very beautifully decorated, with great amenities like huge 2-person bathtub, non-fog mirror in bathroom and heated toilet seat. My husband and I spent the majority of our two day mini-vacation just relaxing at Prairieside Suites. Breakfast was wonderful and we had it delivered to our room so we didn't have to get out of bed! We did not explore the area much, but did enjoy dinner at a local japanese restaurant that made great sushi.


Romantic Time Away

5 on December 26, 2010

Thanks for being such great hosts [lot's of privacy] for our Holiday Weekend Getaway. Your B&B is really beautiful and a great setting for a romantic time away from home. The food and accommodations were perfect. We chose Prairieside Suites because of your internet rating and awards. We will definitely tell people about our stay and hope to return again soon.


This was my first visit, but won't be my last.

4.8 on December 05, 2010

I spent the weekend in the Spanish Hacienda with my girlfriend. The room was simply amazing. It was cozy and relaxing. They are not kidding when they tell you to not worry about bringing anything with you. They even included some bath salts for the jacuzzi. Plates, silverware, everything you could need is in the room for you. Cindy was great. Breakfast each morning was delicious. I wasn't feeling well one morning and when I sent my girlfriend to tell Cindy I wasn't going to make it to breakfast, she offered to make me a plate so my girlfriend could take it back down with her. That is great service. There were always cookies, cakes, and hot chocolate ready all day when ever you had a urge for something sweet. We will be back.


Was not what I expected

3.2 on November 09, 2010

We spent our 5th anniversary here. The room was very nice. The owners were out of town and after we were shown to our room and around the house the person who showed us was gone and we were not able to ask any questions. For breakfast we had let them know that I was a vegetarian. The meal was scrambled eggs that had sausage cooked into it.

Innkeeper Response
During each house welcome our guests are given a business card with my phone number and told that I am always available and to call me with any questions or if they need anything during their stay. I make a point to answer our phones and speak personally to our guests, I am sorry these guest didn't call me and ask whatever questions they had. My phone number with this same instructions is in the room directory too. Just as a note, we have a large house and maintain private quarters onsite. Our guests are here for privacy so it is normal for us to welcome you to our home, give you a phone number to contact us and disappear. We care about cooking in a way that pleases our guest and that is why we ask you to fill in information about preferences. We double checked our reservations and we didn't have any vegetarian requests for the whole month that this guest stayed with us and that is why they had meat in their eggs. So please fill in your personal preferences carefully because it is our goal to please you.


Totally Awesome!

5 on November 09, 2010

My wife and I have spent our anniversary in bed & breakfasts around the country and Prairieside Suites ranks as one of the very best. Cheri and Paul's attention to detail and the "over the top" service provided by their wonderful staff was far beyond our expectation. The proximity to downtown Grand Rapids provides many choices for entertainment. We are already planning our return!!!


Disappointed

2.6 on September 26, 2010

It was our 21st anniversary and we decided to drive to an area in Michigan that we had never been to. Along the way we stayed in 3 different B&B's as is our custom. We splurged on the exact date of our anniversary to stay here ,as it was quite pricey, but the website kept saying how pampered you were going to be. First we were disappointed in the town as we drove through as it had nothing special to offer. It was a rather run- down town. When we drove up to the place we were sorry to have made the reservation. It is a plain looking single story home in the suburbs. The owner rushed us through the tour as they were hurrying to go out of town for the weekend. She left 2 brownies in our room and 2 cans of coke. We went to have some of their famous cocoa (which was very sweet) and were looking around for the cookies that the website said were always available. There were none, and when I called her to ask about them she hurriedly came over grabbed some out of the freezer and put them on a plate. All of her baked goods were frozen and none of them tasted home made. When in our room there were samples for her decorating business. That, we thought was beyond tacky. Apparently there are samples in all the rooms as the other people staying there had some in their room too. Our bed was very comfortable, and the tub and shower were great but the view was of the street in front of the house. If you're looking for a gourmet breakfast experience don't bother coming here as it was a poor breakfast at best. Omelet was not very good and the baked item had been in the freezer. We are big coffee drinkers and the coffee they serve is just south of swill. Value for money is very poor at this B&B. We did not feel pampered at all as they stressed, we felt neglected as we never saw the owners after the rush job upon our arrival. Would never stay here again or remotely recommend it. We can't understand how it got high ratings. Our advice is to go elsewhere!

Innkeeper Response
Oh my goodness, I feel so bad. This is Cheri, the owner of Prairieside Suites. Where do I even start? It is our philosophy at our B&B that it's important to welcome our guests with a brief tour of the common areas, show them their room, answer any questions they may have and then disappear....giving our guests the privacy and relaxation they're here for and deserve. Everyone is given my business card with my phone number and they are encouraged to call me with any questions OR if they need anything.

We bake ahead and freeze our cookies because it keeps them fresh and moist [we don't want to serve day-old baked goods]. This works well because whether we have 2 guests or 10 guests, we can keep a wonderful supply and variety available.

We have "Maxwell House" coffee packs in our rooms, along with tea and our homemade hot cocoa. We put a couple sodas in your room refrigerator for each day of your stay. We have a choice of 8 different kinds of soda and ask your preference, if you don't choose anything then I'll often put something in [just in case]. We serve "Bigby's" French Roast- fresh ground coffee in the dining room at breakfast. Our guests often remark on how much they like the fresh flavorful "coffee house" taste.

If you look at our pictures you can see we have a two story home. We're located in the suburbs [Grandville] only 6 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids. Please look on our area attractions page for ideas on things to do when you're here. We have 40 restaurants, a 20-screen movie theater and the largest regional mall in Michigan within 4 minutes of our door plus restaurants, an antique store, library, Wedgewood park and two local pubs that are within walking distance. I guess this proves you can't make everyone happy but I will admit that we really do try!


Can I live here?

5 on September 13, 2010

My husband and I stayed in The Tuscan Villa for our honeymoon and our entire stay was fantastic! The room was spacious and had everything you could possibly think of. The attention to detail is incredible! We had continental breakfast one morning and came out for breakfast the other day. Both were great! We loved the pool, the whirlpool tub, and the jetted shower. Also the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! I ask my husband to bring me back there every month! :) Can't wait to book our next reservation.


Over the top perfection

5 on August 23, 2010

We stayed at the Prairieside Suites for our anniversary and found it to be just what we were looking for. They make sure every detail of your stay is perfect. We felt welcomed and yet still had the privacy we like. We will be back again next year unless we can sneak away sooner. It's by far the best B & B we have ever stayed at.


Memories at Prairieside Suites

5 on August 06, 2010

We celebrated our 1st anniversary at Prairieside Suites. It was the most wonderful experience. We had a delicious breakfast every morning, had a nice relaxing swim in the pool everyday, and we loved the beautiful swing where we enjoyed some nice quiet conversations. We look so forward to our next visit with Cheri and Paul. This place is the best! Tammy and Michael Camp Oxford, MI


Very quiet and enjoyable

4.8 on July 28, 2010

We recently stayed in the Spanish Hacienda Suite. It was very quiet, very peaceful and had everything we needed and much more. The staff was great and the food was awesome. We have already recommended it to others, thank you for a memorable experience.


Birthday Getaway

4.8 on July 23, 2010

Rooms were exceptional. We were very pleased with quality and detail of the French Riviera suite. The morning chefs were excellent! Staff was very attentive to our needs. Chef was aware of my food allergy and made sure that it was prepared appropriately.


A great little getaway

5 on July 18, 2010

For a super stay and great getaway this Prairieside Suites hit all the spots, friendly, clean and comfortable. Delightedly decorated with a down home welcome feeling from the first hello to the hug goodbye. Arron


Peaceful, Relaxing Getaway

3.4 on July 13, 2010

The room was very nice - lots of amenities you don't have at home (whirlpool tub, heated tile floors, etc). Breakfast was good, though a little more variety/choices would be welcome.


Absolutley Beautiful "Spanish Hacienda"

5 on June 30, 2010

Wonderful Experience

5 on June 21, 2010

I cannot possibly say enough nice things about Prairieside. Even before we arrived for our stay, Cheri called us to find out what we liked to eat for breakfast! We were welcomed by Paul when we arrived and were given a nice tour of the home. Everything is immaculately clean and welcoming. We ordered our breakfast delivered hot to our room and it was amazing!! We even got fresh salsa to put on our omelets. We are already planning our next trip and can't wait to stay again. Thank you so much Cheri and Paul for making our anniversary so special!!

A Winter Stay

5 on April 12, 2010

This was a fantastic way to spend the night during the cold winter. My wife and I were so impressed with the room. The snacks were fantastic and the other guests just made the evening great as we gathered in the living room area and enjoyed each others company for a while. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a very romantic and elegant get away.

romantic

5 on March 01, 2010

Found this B&B online and it looked so nice and inviting..it had so many options to make our stay the most romantic as possible! We had such an amazing time we didn't want to leave!

We stayed at your bed and breakfast for our honeymoon, it was THE BEST!! Everything that we could have needed was already thought of! The food was wonderful, and everyone was thoughtful and sweet! We hope to be coming back next year! Thank you for everthing!


Fabulous B&B

5 on February 04, 2010

We loved our stay! Cindy, the staff, was awesome. Friendly, cordial, knowledgeable. Bed amazing. Beautiful room and home. Will recommend to anyone and already have actually. We will be back. Everything exceeded internet description. Only recommendation is to have a remote for the TV.

Innkeeper Response
We have TV's plus VCR/DVD players. Our universal remote controls have to be programed and what happened was one of our guest suites has a hardwood floor and when the remote control hit the floor it broke. Unfortunately the prior guest didn't tell us and we didn't know until the new guest arrived. The next day we had someone techi'er than me do the programming. The moral of the story is...if something isn't working or breaks during your stay please tell the innkeeper so the next guest isn't inconvenienced.


Getaway Weekend

4.8 on January 30, 2010

We visited the Prarieside Suites for a weekend getaway based on the website and reviews. The experience exceeded our expectations. The hosts were warm and congenial. The staff was wonderful and the food was a step above in terms of freshness and appearance. The room had a number of pleasant surprises from the heated tile in the bathroom to one of the most comfortable beds we have been in.


winter escape

4.8 on January 11, 2010

We are "locals" who just wanted a mid winter escape. Very nice, modern room with all of the conveniences. Was a surprise for my wife. As they say, "happy wife, happy life."


Ten Romantic Inns of 2009

4.6 on January 04, 2010

My husband and I spent our anniversary at Prairieside Suites in the English Garden suite and it was awesome! You know how you see an ad, and think it proably doesn't look like that or its just pictures for advertising, well.......it's what you see and a whole lot more! It was like visiting a relative. Cheri and Paul are like freinds. Vickie was very nice and warm. The whole atmosphere was relaxing and charming! We were there for Christmas day (our anniversary) and had not made any dinner resevations anywhere and everything was closed. Cheri had made a big pot of soup and bread. Boy was that a blessing and right on time. We do plan on a return. And we will tell everyone who would like a romatic get-away or any kind of get-away about Prairieside Suites. Thanks for a GREAT Anniversary present! The Trotmans Dec 24-26 2009


Fabulous Getaway

5 on January 04, 2010

Prairieside Suites is just what we needed for a relaxing getaway. Cheri and Paul were gracious hosts. The breakfasts were delicious and the Tuscan Villa was remarkable.


Five star B & B

5 on December 16, 2009

We stayed at this B & B because of the reviews we read online while visiting friends in Grand Rapids. It was fabulous! Beautifully decorated, clean rooms, friendly staff, great breakfast and comfortable bed! The combination of Cheri's decorating and Paul's building skills make this a one of a kind place. It's all in the details. During our 24 hour stay we never saw another guest until breakfast. We enjoyed their company so much that we ended up departing much later than planned. Nancy & Scott


Perfectly Prairieside

4.4 on November 23, 2009

We booked our stay the very day of check in and Cherie met all requests and even went overboard to show some care in assuring our stay was just perfect. I wish we had more time to enjoy the beautiful room and all the extras that Cheri and Paul have put into their wonderful bed and breakfast....BRAVO!!!


5 Star All The Way

5 on October 28, 2009

We really needed to get away from it all and that we did. What a FABULOUS place to exhale. We couldn't believe all the positive reviews, so we had to see for ourselves. This place is definitely 5 star all the way and we can't wait to book our next reservation! Thank you Paul & Cheri for such a great weekend!!!


Very Romantic!

5 on October 26, 2009

We stayed for 2 nights in the Spanish Hacienda and could not have been happier! Prairieside Suites went above and beyond our expectations.


Surprise for my husband

5 on October 22, 2009

I decided to surprise my husband for a weekend away because he does so many nice things for me. Even though Grandville wasn't too far from where we live, a night away, to be pampered, is a nice treat. We stayed in the French Riviera, and it was beautiful. The room was cozy and warm. Super clean and well decorated. The jacuzzi and fireplace set the scene for a romantic night with my favorite guy. The hosts went beyond the call of duty and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Book your weekend away....you won't be disappointed!


Romantic Honeymoon

5 on October 11, 2009

Cheri & Paul but mostly Cindy, You made our first stay at a B&B as a new husband & wife very special. We were both impressed with all aspects of the room.

We would like to thank Cindy personally for the five star service and dor the delicious breakfasts! Also, for the tours of the rest of the guest rooms combined with everything else we will always recommend Prairieside Suites to everybody and look forward to our definite stay in the future!

Best B&B in Michigan

5 on July 23, 2009

Hi Cheri and Paul. I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to send you a note following our stay at your b & b. You have a beautiful home and your advertisement of 'luxury' suites is most definitely a true statement. Our room (and your entire home, for that matter) was out of this world! All the details, like snacks in the kitchen and extras in our room made it an extra special stay. I have never seen anything like that hot water dispenser in the kitchen! Everything was just stunning and Adrienne sure enjoyed her own little private space too. We were so comfortable, I wish we could have stayed longer. Unfortunately, we had to move on to continue our travels through Michigan. But we can't wait to return !! Hope all is well with you folks. Sincerely Joyce & Jack.


Unimaginable

4.8 on July 18, 2009

This was the best stay my husband and I ever experienced. The room was spotless and had everything you could imagine from a wine bottle cooler to European shower jets, and heated tile floor. We only got to stay for one night, but that was the most romantic night we experienced since our honeymoon almost 10 years ago. The grounds were beautiful with a fountain and an in ground pool with a waterfall flowing into it. I would recommend this stay to everyone. If you haven't experienced a bed and breakfast, you should start with Prairieside Suites, you will always return because there is nothing else out there like them.


Treated like Royality

5 on July 12, 2009

This was the most outstanding place we have ever stayed. We love to travel and have many comparisons, but this B&B was the most luxurious, pampering experience ever. The room Decor was fantastic, every comfort thought of and provided, right down to the heated bathroom floor and toilet seat! The pool was refreshing, the gardens beautiful, and our hosts friendly and aproachable. The food was delicious, spa services relaxaing, you can't go wrong by choosing this Luxury Suite.


There's no place like home.

5 on June 28, 2009

My husband and I selected the Prairieside Suites to celebrate our 10 anniversary. What a remarkable selection. Paul, Cheri and the angels ARE THE BEST IN THE WEST. The decor, cleanliness, hospitality and breakfast were off the charts. I would recommend this B&B to all my friends. Thanks again Paul & Cheri... Dalmon & LaToya Harper


Best Bed and Breakfast in Michigan!

4.8 on June 28, 2009

My husband and I went here for our 10th anniversary and it was wonderful! Cherri was very nice and we had all the privacy we needed. This bed and breakfast is in a great location, small town feel but lots to do around here. The rooms were just gorgeous! Cherri decorates them just lovely and the room had all the little touches of being in a luxury hotel! And breakfast the next day was just wonderful, they even went out of the way to cook me something different from everyone else since I had an allregy to eggs! we would 100% come back to stay here again, I would recomend this place to anyone looking for a great escape and a really nice bed and breakfast to stay at, thanks Cherri


We would return!

4.6 on June 24, 2009

Prairieside B&B thinks of all the small details of your stay. It is immaculate, cozy, enjoyable -- wonderful. The owners are very welcoming and hospitable -- they definitely should not quit their day job! Well done! Thanks for a fun place to stay!


Fantastic B & B

We felt like we belonged to the family. It was a respite for us and it seemed we were surrounded by luxury. I'd go again in a heartbeat!


Quite a place.

4.8 on June 11, 2009

My fiance and I were looking for a nice luxurious stay, but on late notice. I looked this place up and dialed the number, and was surprised to actually get the owner at this hour (10-11pm). She was more than happy to alter her evening plans to work around my schedule and provide us with some nice late night snacks to boot! Thanks a lot, Cheri!


Beautiful

4.6 on June 03, 2009

I wanted somewhere nice to take my wife of 17 years, being in the Navy has caused me to move around alot. We just got back to the states after 5 years in Japan. I was blessed to find Praireside Suites while surfing the internet. The Staff there blessed us with there warm customer service and smiles. It inspired me and my wife to make plans to open up a Bed and Breafast ourselves. ONE DAY. Thanks Prairieside. Thanks for the extra's you gave us. Prairieside takes care of the military! I salute you.


Really, it's business!

4.8 on June 02, 2009

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at Prairieside Suites. We stayed in the English Cottage and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Thanks, Cheri and Paul and Cindy! Jan and Dave


Great Place

3.4 on April 24, 2009

12/27-29/2008...A wonderful place with a good decor and ambiance, Cheri was an excellent hostess.. available to meet our needs. the only downside to the "English Cottage" was the overpowering noise from the Spa Tub in the neighboring room

Innkeeper Response
They were right. After we read this review we filled the whirlpool in the room next door, turned it on and it was loud! We immediately had it repaired, their was something wrong with the motor. We value their honest comments, at Prairieside Suites was want to "CREATE" an "EXPERIENCE" not just a stay!


room was perfect

4.4 on April 17, 2009

We came for R&R and certainly we got it! Thank you for all of the amenities and hospitality!


Great place to relaxing

Heaven on Earth

4.4 on April 10, 2009

From the heated floors, towel racks, and toilet seat, to the gas log fireplace, whirlpool tub, dual European shower, this room was Heaven! This beautifully decorated Italian inspired room was so relaxing and quiet. the staff was very personable and the breakfast incredible. A luxury stay at a reasonable price. I will remember these last few days as a little slice of Heaven!


They thought of everything!

5 on April 10, 2009

Clean, updated facility. Private and romantic.Couldn't ask for a greater experience for our honeymoon. Excellent area for things to do as well. Great staff and owners.


B&B experience

This B&B has made our getaway extremely enjoyable! The jacuzzi, fireplace, and European shower is magnificent, especially in February. We definitely recommend it and we look forward to seeing the new addition of rooms. Paul and Cheri have the gift of design and they know how to implement it!


Exquisite and Exceptionally Beautiful

5 on April 02, 2009

My significant other and I stayed one night in the Southern Mansion. The tour given by Cheri was exceptional and quite comfortable. We only stayed one night but it was the most elegant night of my life. I was able to share my experience with the man of my dreams, what better way to share this wonderful experience. I loved the time and care put into making our stay this memorable. Thank you Cheri for all that you do. Mari

Everyone was very friendly and willing to go the extra mile without being overbearing. Shower and heated floors were the best!!

Home Away From Home

4.8 on January 31, 2009

The English Cottage in the Praireside Suites served as our home away from home. Besides being beautiful to look at, it had practically anything we could have asked for - starting with welcome juices in the small refrigerator in our room. After our long drive, the cool drinks were refreshing and filling. The snow was scenic, but the heated toilet seat and heated towel racks were an extra comfort in cold Michigan. We had brought a wedding veil for my daughter's reception and I was able to get out the wrinkles with the handy iron and mini ironing board. The room was equipped with a home office, and the latest in home furnishings. The breakfasts were tasty and filling, and beautifully presented. We would definitely recommend the Praireside Suites to anyone visiting the area.


wonderful gift from our daughter

5 on January 28, 2009

Great place to stay! It is near activities and shopping in the Grand Rapids area. The hosts are helpful and knowledgeable. Our room was comfortable, as well as well-decorated. Breakfast was excellent and they accommodated our food preferences. We will be coming back and staying here again!

The Southern Mansion at the Prairieside Suites Luxury Bed and Breakfast is outstanding. Everything you need to relax and get away is provided. The room design is fabulous. You will want to come back!!!


We enjoyed our stay

4.8 on January 23, 2009

A very nice time!! Cheri was very accomodating, and Cindy... so nice, and boy can she make an omlette! Our time was relaxing and very enjoyable. Only minus comment I could make... and isn't really negative... it would be nice to see them move up in techonology and get Flat screen TVs in the rooms. Thanks for making our Twentieth memorable! Looking forward to visiting again sometime.


Time here was too short

4.8 on January 22, 2009

We found our stay to be very relaxing and enjoyable. The accomodations were clean, clearly well cared for, and lovely. Breakfast was delicious and even made according to personal preferences.


January getaway

3.4 on January 19, 2009

loved the jacuzzi and the fireplace, and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Breakfast was also very nice and the main house is absolutely gorgeous. Enjoyed our stay very much.


Our stay

3.4 on January 16, 2009

Great room, but for a B and B breakfast was a huge disappointment.

Innkeeper Response
When guest book a reservation with us they have the choice of a full hot breakfast in the dining room OR a deluxe continental breakfast can be packed in the room refrig for them to eat in the privacy of their room. This is the choice of the person booking the room. Our full breakfast in the dining room starts with a scone or muffin, and with a bowl of fruit, then we serve our entree which might be an omelet with toast OR biscuits & gravy with eggs OR french toast with eggs. Accompanied by coffee, tea or hot cocoa served in our beautiful candle lite dining room with a fireplace on one end and a huge china cabinet on the other. You'll feel like royalty! I think this person's significant other thought they would like to snuggle and sleep in so HE picked the deluxe continental breakfast in their room and SHE was disappointed. So MEN listen up...WOMEN love to come out for breakfast!


Wonderful experience

4.6 on January 14, 2009

I traveled there for business last summer. It was such a nice change from staying in a hotel. I was truly touched when Cheri called to ask me what I liked to drink, what kind of snacks I preferred. Definitely not a typical business trip! I did not get the opportunity to dine with the Antozaks, but she left baked goodies in the kitchen for an anytime snack. Very nice touch! I would definitely recommend Prairieside Suites B&B to anyone. I felt right at home. Linda Luong Irwin Union Bank

First time at a B&B and it was so relaxing! It felt right at home with the homemade cookies/pie to choose from. Excellent place! Keep it up!


AMAZING

5 on January 13, 2009

This B&B was amazing! It was so romantic and relaxing. I can not wait to return! This place is a piece of Heaven. Also, the owners are just wonderful. Again, I can't wait to return!

Top ten romantic inns for 2009

5 on January 12, 2009

Everything about our stay was incredibly romantic. There was a whirlpool tub for two (with colored lights in the tub!) and a fireplace for ambiance. There was a European jetted shower for two. The linens on the incredibly soft bed were luxurious and the room decor also also helped the romantic feel. The breakfasts were fabulous and you could choose to get a continental breakfast with lots of food in your room if you wanted to snuggle and sleep in. We'll be back!!!


Even better than I had imagined!

4.6 on January 09, 2009

My husband took me on a wonderful honeymoon three months ago and I wanted to surprise him with a short second honeymoon, but I was very picky about what I wanted. Prairieside was the only one who had everything I wanted and amazingly even more!


very quiet, romantic setting

4.8 on January 09, 2009

Very clean. Breakfasts were wonderful. Staff very personable and pure joy to talk to!


Best start to the New Year '09

5 on January 03, 2009

Our first time to a B & B and the experience is one that we will repeat again. Breakfast and midnight desserts were mouth-watering delights. Atmosphere and creature comforts were more than we expected. Loved the warm toilet and towels. J & D


Incredible

4.6 on January 02, 2009

We stayed in the "Tuscan Villa" I have styed in several B&B's on the east coast and this place is as good if not better than any of them. The room was amazing (fireplace, jacuzzi tub), the food was incredible and the hospitality was second to none. I highly recommend saying here!!!


Excellent

5 on December 28, 2008

My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary here and we were very pleased by the friendly staff, delicious food and romantic accomodations. It was very relaxing not having to worry about anything. We have already recommended it to all of our family members and will definitely be back.


35th Anniversary weekend

Prairieside is the perfect retreat for a romantic getaway. Cheri and Paul offer a warm welcome, and their hospitality is over the top. We will recommend this B&B to our friends and family!

great, awesome, highly recommend.... The hosts, Cheri and Paul, along with incredible staff make this B&B a must stop weekend...over nights would be refreshing.


Amazing...

4.8 on December 08, 2008

This was our second time staying at Prairieside Suites, and it was just as great as the first! Everything was outstanding from the complimentary cookies in the afternoon to the wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning! Our favorite ammenity in the English Cottage had to be the heated toilet seat! We hope to come back this summer to enjoy the pool!


Very nice B&B

3.6 on December 08, 2008

My husband and I stayed 2 nights. It is a very beautiful home. You can tell right away that alot of thought was put into creating a home away from home. We stayed in the Southern Mansion room. Very nice. The king size bed was very comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed watching a couple of movies from the large movie collection, and we also listened to a couple of cds from their collection. We were slightly disappointed with the size of the breakfasts. They were very delicious, but the portions were quite small. We will definately consider staying here again. There is alot to do nearby. Very nice location for a B&B!

Innkeeper Response
Wow in six years this is the 1st time I've heard anything other than our breakfast are GREAT! I'll have to let YOU decide...each breakfast starts with a scone or muffin with a bowl of fruit, then we serve our entree which might be an omelet with toast OR biscuits & gravy with eggs OR french toast with eggs. Accompanied by coffee, tea or hot cocoa served in our beautiful candle lite dining room with a fireplace on one end and a huge china cabinet on the other. You'll feel like royalty!


great weekend

We really enjoyed our stay. the room was beautiful and well suited for our needs! Food was great! Thanks!


Wanted to stay forever!

5 on November 25, 2008

We stayed in the Southern Mansion & every single detail was perfect! We felt like we had walked into absolute romantic peace and quiet! We instantly forgot there was even an outside world. Cheri had thought of every last detail imaginable! I've never been in a hotel or B&B that was so clean, beautiful & so well thought out! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! We'll be back just as soon as possible!


Southern Comfort

5 on November 20, 2008

The name of our room was 'Southern Mansion" and it was. Every comfort and amenity was there to make us comfortable and pampered. Great bed-great food!

Our stay was fantastic. Cheri does not miss a detail that provides for a luxurious stay. breakfasts were elegantly delicious. I loved the homemade hot chocolate!


Amazing stay in the Southern Mansion

4.8 on November 01, 2008

We stayed in the Southern Mansion for one night and regretted it instantly...we should have stayed for 2 or 3!! The decor of this room was exquisite. The bed was huge and comfortable, with ample pillows and dimmable light controls right near your head. The jacuzzi comfortably fit two and was very romantic with wine, a rose and candles! My wife loved the heated seat in the bathroom and fog-free mirror. Great snacks were available at all times and a pretty extensive movie collection as well. I only had two issues with our stay. First, the television is a little outdated and small (but I'm kind of a geek with t.v.'s), but my wife would have rather not had one at all. Second, we were asked what we wanted in our omlets for the next morning, but instead of omelets there were (delicious) scrambled eggs with cheese and onion. The french toast, however, was absolutely sensational! All in all, a tremendous night and we can't wait to get the chance to have a longer stay at Prairieside Suites!


very relaxing!

4.8 on October 31, 2008

exactly what we needed after our wedding. Thanks!


wonderful breakfast!

4.0 on October 25, 2008

Talk about exceeding expectations. This is the place! We arrived at the check-in time and were delighted we did. There was much to see and enjoy. The whole building and grounds were elaborately beautiful. There were many small details I think many sites would not have thought of providing. We stayed in the Southern Mansion Room (with the flowers and nonalcoholic wine package) and the experience was well worth it. Cheri and Paul (proprietors) were wonderful. Finally, the breakfast prepared and served by Cindy was truly scrumptious.

Well deserved reputation

4.8 on October 13, 2008

The Tuscan Villa is wonderfully appointedall the way to the heated toilet seat, which is much appreciated by the female gender. Cheri is always welcoming and gracious. We never have to ask for anything extra because they have already thought of everything.

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay that would allow us to reconnect after having our daughter. Prairieside was exactly what we were looking for. The room was amazing and the service was outstanding. The are great walking and bike trails about a block away. We can't wait to come back and check out one of the other great rooms this winter. Thanks Cheri and Paul!


my home away from home

5 on September 18, 2008

My job requires a couple over-nights a month on the West side of Michigan. I have made the English Cottage of Prairieside Suites my 'home away from home.' I sleep peacefully and relax far more at Prairieside than I do at home....it is always a welcome business trip. I leave feeling 'spoiled.'


Once in a lifetime!

4.2 on September 15, 2008

The Southern Mansion was exactly what I wanted for my special celebration. It had every amenity that I had imagined plus a few I hadn't thought of yet! These folks have found their niche and the guests get the benefit. Even our flat tire on a rainy morning didn't phase these two. Paul pumped it up and led us to his recommended repair shop and we didn't even get wet! Fantastic service! We DO hope to return again.

Birthday wish

3.8 on September 14, 2008

Wonderfully maintained property that's warm and inviting. The grounds are alive with blooming plants and shrubs that present a beautiful array of colors everywhere you look. Inside, care has been taken to meet every need from light snacks to soothing music. The place shines with immaculate care and the guest room was spacious and appointed with everything you would possibly need. Breakfast was very relaxed, well prepared with a pleasing variety. The proprietors were most gracious and hospitable making sure all our needs were met (even to the point of inflating a flat tire and leading us to a repair shop). Our only regret was that we couldn't stay another night.


Absolutley Beautiful

5 on September 11, 2008

My wife and I just stayed here, and it was wonderful. This was our first bed abnd breakfast experience and I dont think there will ever be one that can beat it. Cheri and Paul are wonderful people. Cheri was so kind and thoughtful towards us. Their home is gorgeous and our room was immaculate. The property is also stunning, with beautiful gardens and the pool. I give it five stars all the way around. If anyone ever needs a relaxing and carefree getaway this is the place.


Prairieside Suites B&B

3.8 on September 08, 2008

Our stay at the Prairieside B&B was great. The room was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. They think of everything to make your stay special and romantic. The garden and grounds were spectacular and the location is convenient. Cheri and Paul were friendly and made sure we felt welcome. Our breakfast was made even better by the warm and friendly staff member who served it - she was a wonderful host as well!


Simply Wonderful

5 on September 08, 2008

This is an amazing B&B! Everything from the room, to the special attention to detail, to the wonderfully prepared breakfast, by far the best B&B we've ever stayed at. Cheri is just wonderful and gracious as is her staff. My husband and I had a memorable time. We highly recommend you stay at this B&B if you ever get the chance. Jenni & Eric Portage, IN

Great 40th anniv. celebration

5 on August 25, 2008

Our stay at Prairieside Suites in the English Cottage was wonderful. We began our 4 nite stay with Jessica's massages,WOW, then relaxed in the outdoor swing, Cheri even brought us biscotti to go with our complimentary hot chocolate.We swam in the pool during the day & had a pool party one evening with Cheri, Paul, & other guests- now how many B&B's do that? Our breakfasts were delicious, great conversations, great directions & maps, comfort personified with the King bed, our own entrance, coffee in the quiet mornings outside in the gorgeous gardens, birds singing.There were even kitchen supplies, office too.We've stayed in B&B's for well over 10 yrs, so this one was tops in our book!Cheri & Paul's hospitality & details in all that they say & do, they're the sweetiest & kindest, even a rose for our anniversary, that is above & beyond, they made our 40th anniv. one to remember.We'll be back!

Has every ammenity you can think of in room. We came for a getaway, but my husband said that if he was working in the grand rapids area he would stay here because of the office. Very comfortable, and cozy.


You can go back again - and it can be wonderful.

5 on August 19, 2008

Prairieside Suites is the proof positive. A return visit can be as wonderful as the first one! Everything about our stay was lovely - including the flowers Cheri let me dig up from her garden. How can you top that for caring hospitality?


Very nice room!

2.8 on August 18, 2008

My husband & I spent a night in the Southern Mansion room while on our honeymoon. The room was great! It looked just as nice as the photos online appeared. The breakfast that was available was stocked in our in-room refrigerator just waiting for us to get up & enjoy breakfast in bed, which was a great idea! The pop in the fridge & mini bag of popcorn were nice touches. The room has great upgrades, I can tell Cheri is a decorator! All in all Cheri & Paul are very nice people with a nice B&B & the Southern Mansion is a great room!


Prarieside Suites

4.6 on August 17, 2008

This is a bed and breakfast that you will not be dissappointed with. Cheri and Paul have thought of everything in order to make your stay perfect. We stayed in the Tuscan Villa and loved it.

We had never been to a B&B before, but we were celebrating our 1yr wedding anniversary and wanted to try something new. This B&B was fantastic! The house is gorgeous, the rooms are perfect and very comfortable. They made sure everything was to our personal preference. Cheri & Paul are wonderful people of God. We would definitely return!


Fantastic stay

4.8 on July 08, 2008

Thanks for the wonderful service and hospitality! The room was immaculate, well-decorated and had every imaginable convenience. The grounds are also beautiful and well manicured! We'll be back to stay for a few days next time since we were unable to take advantage of the pool and gardens due to weather.


They've thought of everything!

4.8 on July 07, 2008

Cheri and Paul have made an effort to provide for all of your needs at Prairieside. They have all sort of "extras" hidden away in each room to make sure all of their guests are comfortable. The room was excellent, the food was superb, and Cheri was warm and friendly. Thank you for a great stay!


Outstanding B&B!

5 on July 02, 2008

We were treated like part of the family. The room was so peaceful and beautiful. The hot cocoa, cookies and warm towels made us so relaxed. We will stay here again!

It was like the Disney World of bed and breakfast

5 on June 17, 2008

Our stay at the Prairieside Suites Luxury Bed and Breakfast was like a few nights in Heaven. It really was perfect. I have stayed in many bed and breakfast in the last few years. The rooms were wonderful and clean. There was nothing that was forgotten. They thought of everything. The service exceeded our expectations. The food was wonderful. Paul made some awesome pan cakes. Cheri had maps to all of the fun places to go in the area. The pool was refreshing... and the gardens were beautiful. It was a wonderful weekend to remember. Thanks for all the fun!!

We have never felt so relaxed and comfortable away from home. We will be back.


Just what we needed...

5 on June 08, 2008

Our stay at Prairiside Suites was exactly what we were looking for while my husband was on leave from Iraq. Everything was absolutely beautiful. Quiet, relaxing and exactly what we needed to spend some time with just each other. Thank you so much!


A welcome break

4.8 on May 27, 2008

I am a traveling sales representative and spend a lot of time away from home. I can not wait until my business takes me to Michigan so I can enjoy the, oh so lovely home of Cheri and Paul! I have stayed there several times in the past few years. It's almost like home. Sheer comfort, peace and relaxation! Hope to stay again soon.


Celebrating 10 Years

4.6 on May 27, 2008

My husband and I came to Prairieside Suites to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We were so impressed with the beautiful Southern Mansion room we stayed in. Everything was perfect! We go to a B & B each year for our anniversary and this was one of our favorites! We will recommend Prairieside Suites to family and friends!


Wonderful place to stay!

5 on May 11, 2008

Prairieside Suites are unbelievable! We stayed in the southern mansion room for the weekend and it was beautiful. Everything about this B & B is about attention to detail. The owners are friendly, warm, and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, pampered, special, and relaxed. The grounds are inpeccable and the neighborhood is charming. We loved it and would go back again for a special getaway.


Relaxing

5 on May 03, 2008

A great place to unwind and relax with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Cheri and Paul are wonderful hosts. Great location and close to shopping and restaurants


Fit for Royalty!

5 on April 22, 2008

The Southern Mansion is wonderful, such a great experience! The Innkeepers were very kind and accommodating. We felt instantly comfortable and right at home. The whirlpool tub was so relaxing and our comfy large king size made us feel like royalty. The location is close to shopping malls, restaurants and movie theaters.


Pampered at Prairieside!

4.6 on April 22, 2008

What a wonderful experience! My husband and I recently stayed at Prairieside Suites and have only good things to say! We had the pleasure of staying in a most romantic room - the Tuscan Villa. It was just as the pictures showed - beautiful decor, wonderful amenities, and a comfortable bed. Everything we needed, wanted, or forgot was there for us! Cheri and Paul, the owners, also added to the great experience. They were very pleasant and fun but also showed respect for our privacy (sometimes hit-or-miss with B&B owners). Breakfast was a delight! Fresh made-to-order omelets, homemade salsa, scones, fruit - the works! The formal dining room was also beautiful and added to the experience. Overall, we had a very relaxing stay at Prairieside Suites. We hope to return in the summer in order to enjoy the beautiful landscaping and outdoor pool. Highly recommended!


Amazing weekend!

5 on April 07, 2008

It was fabulous. The room and accomodations were amazing we couldn't have asked for anything more.


Anniversary Getaway

5 on March 30, 2008

David and I decided at the last minute to get away for our anniversary night. We found the beautifully done website for Prairieside Suites and called to see if they could accomodate us. Right from the first hello from Cheri to the time we left on Sunday, we felt as if we had known she and Paul for a long time. Their B&B is delightful and a perfect destination for a romantic getaway! When you visit you will know as we do now, the reasons they have won so many awards. We will be telling all our friends about Prairieside and we look forward to returning. Many thanks for a relaxing and comforting night! David and Shelley Steinmiller


30 Years

5 on March 26, 2008

We celebrated our 30th wedding Anniversary and enjoyed this beautiful Inn, our suite was truly fabulous! Quiet times are precious and we really needed this getaway. We look forward to returning for every anniversary! After my husband's year long battle with Multiple Myeloma, a son serving in the USMC in Afghanistan, another in college, and our daughter busy with our two fabulous grandsons (which we have often), it was time for US! Surprising my husband with this time away was FUN (he says that's my favorite word!). But next time SUMMER...that pool looked real FUN! Cheri was even sweet enough to call me to tell me I left my favorite jeans there and she's mailing 'em out to me in the morning! LOL... above and beyond Cheri & Paul! Your place is AWESOME! Highly recommended.


Cozy Getaway

4.6 on March 09, 2008

Wonderful clean room, and great hosts. The attention to detail was phenomenal and appreciated. Loved the fantastic king sized bed and slept better than home!


Winter Getaway Bliss

5 on February 14, 2008

Quiet, Peaceful! Room decorated with thought and elegance. Warm bathroom floor and comode were a delightful sensual surprise. By far the warmest Valetine Memory for us. Paul made us feel right at home with his well prepared breakfast omelet, fruit cup and fresh from the oven scones. Delightful!


Prairieside - great for work or play !

5 on February 03, 2008

We have stayed with Cheri & Paul for both business and pleasure and we would do it again over & over. We relaxed and rejuvenated on our pleasure trip & felt like we were home away from home on our work trip. We will definately be back again! The Haners - Jason & Theresa


What a Weekend

5 on January 14, 2008

This was a first time in a B&B and it was the most relaxing weekend away we have ever had. The room looked exactly like the picture on the website and was more beautiful in person. The service was outstanding, Cheri, Paul and their staff were all so attentive and very very nice. The breakfasts were so yummy, on the first morning we had delicious omlettes, fresh scones, and toast, and more. The second morning we had the yummiest French Toast, it was not just your regular French Toast she said she put a little Irish Cream in it and cake batter, it was the best. I would recommend this B&B to anyone, and we will be returning for future weekends.


What a Wonderful Place

5 on January 04, 2008

My husband and I got away for a weekend here and Paul and Cheri are just the best host's anyone could ask for! They are so friendly and they have thought of EVERYTHING! The food was great, the atmosphere, the spa tub, the rooms, everything was just fantastic! My husband and I look forward to spending another weekend here.


Outstanding!!

5 on December 09, 2007

Wow...what a great place! What you see on the webpage is exactly the way it looks in person. We had a great stay in the Tuscan Villa. Paul and Cheri are very friendly and sincere...but not pushy as some innkeepers tend to be. The rooms are very private and you may never know if there are other guests if that's how you like it. The area is great with LOTS of shopping and resturants right down the road. We will be recommending this B&B to all of our friends!!!


great place

3.8 on December 07, 2007

Great warm couple, very nice. nicely remodeled house. awesome hot cocoa. sweet jacuzzi tub with firelight. easy to find. great breakfasts!


Stressfree

5 on November 24, 2007

My husband and I are from Lansing and we own our own business along with having 3 children. We were looking to get away but not go to far. We couldn't believe the feeling of relaxation once we arrived. Everything was sooooo perfect and planned out. We didn't want to leave but we will "for sure" be back soon.


"Pleasing Prairieside B & B"

4.6 on November 10, 2007

Thank-you Paul & Cheri for a very wonderful stay! We didn't feel like we were in Grandville, MI, since we only live 20 minutes away! The breakfast was delicious! The rooms were decorated beyond beautiful! We will definitely be back! Thank-you for a perfect place to celebrate our 14th Anniversary!


Moonlite Romance B&B

5 on July 03, 2007

My husband Andrew and I came to Prairiside Suites for our Honeymoon and we were both more than happy with our stay there. The service was awsome. The pool was the cleanest one I have ever seen, The rooms were well designed and kept up. Very unique. We will definitaly come back for our anniversery.


Wonderful Getaway

4.6 on June 27, 2007

It looks like a nice house in a small neighbourhood, but wait until you go inside! It is like stepping into the royal palace with the Queen's botanical gardens in the courtyard! We had plenty of privacy so that our stay was still romantic, yet we enjoyed dining with the other tenants in the morning. I have never stayed in such luxurious quarters and I consider myself to be quite well travelled. Cheri and Paul were friendly and thoughtful. There were tennis courts nearby and they lent us their thermos so that we could bring cold water along, and packed us some bread to feed the ducks. Everything was perfect and I was sad to leave!


Great Anniversary Getaway

3.8 on June 06, 2007

This was the first B&B we have stayed in. If they were all like this we would do it more often. The rooms were clean and beautiful. Everything was very luxurious. Cheri and the staff made us feel as though were family ensuring everything was perfect for us down to our soda of choice waiting in our room when we arrived. Our breakfast we very elegant with beautiful settings in the formal dining room. I will definatly pass this place along to family and friends in the area and out.


perfect romantic getaway

5 on May 21, 2007

We stayed here for our 35th anniversary in May 2007.The pictures can't possibly capture the ambience of the home and the tuscan villa.It was nice having our own private entrance.No detail was missed. The grounds are beautiful. Cheri and Paul were great hosts and had answers to all our questions about the area. Woul highly reccomend prairieside suites to anyone.


The most enjoyable time ever

5 on May 18, 2007

We truly enjoyed our anniversary at your bed and breakfast. Unfortunely, we could only spend one night due to commitments. Everything was perfect. The house and hospitality was superb. I would not recommend anything different. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay very soon.


A Wonderful Getaway...Right Next Door

5 on May 02, 2007

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Prairieside Suites. We only travelled 4 miles to get there but felt we were hundreds of miles away. We could not be happier with our stay. The house, the room, the atmosphere...outstanding!!! We will surely recommend you to all our friends & family. Thank you for making our 4th Anniversary a hit!


Charming Getaway

5 on April 15, 2007

Cheri & Paul were so nice and friendly they treated us like royalty we would recommend any couple looking to have good time to visit the Prairieside Suites. We look forward to going back more often!!!!!!!!!!

A Home away from Home

5 on February 22, 2007

This was our 2nd trip to this beautiful bed and breakfast. Everything that you can possibly imagine is there right at your fingertips. From a stoocked refrigerator in your room with your favoriate soda to towel warmers, it is just the best. Each morning is started off perfectly with a fabulous breakfast for the champions. We are currently trying to think of the next time that we want to come...maybe Spring or Summer since the last two visits have been in the winter. We would like to spend time relaxing next to the pool and enjoying the weather. Cheri and Paul have thought of everything to make this a home away from home...and we thank them for everything. This is truly the bed and breakfast that we will choose hands down....for as long as we travel -- Thank you!


wonderful stay

4.8 on February 22, 2007

Thank you for the wonderful weekend. Everything we needed for a relaxing "getaway" was here-we didn't mind being "snowed in"! All the food and goodies were delicious. We will be sure to tell our friends and family about your wonderful B&B!


Great relaxation time!

4.4 on February 19, 2007

We had a great time at this b and b. It was our first time at one and really enjoyed the decor and loved the relaxation of the place. The fireplace and tub were wonderful, as were the shower. And the bed! You cant get more comfy than that! I could sleep there every night! We hope to come back soon and enjoy it again.


So Relaxing!

5 on February 19, 2007

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was so relaxing. Cheri and Paul are great cooks with a breakfast fit for royalty and a homemade hot chocolate mix that soothes the soul. This weekend was exactly what we needed to recharge during a cold winter!
