Lots of history

3.4 on October 18, 2014

Nice property, friendly hosts.

A quaint little B&B

4.0 on May 30, 2014

You pull up to the house on the street, its a cute little spot. You walk and in the interior is very well kept. The main floor rooms are all pretty small, but they do the job. The beds are twin size, I haven't slept on a twin in 20 years lol... The food is pretty much average. Eggs (very plain and scrambled) with some hash browns, they had cereal, yogurt, etc., but nothing I'd really be excited to eat again. The value is pretty good, they DO treat you like family. The fridge is yours to share with them (but put your stuff in bags or others might think your stuff is the B&B's and take it lol). You can use their grill, firepit, pavilion. Very nice people though. They are also new at this, so with time I think they'll make even better Innkeepers and the place will be even better. It is located right off the main road, which is good and bad, it was literally a block away from the little arts & crafts festival which was nice to walk to.

Had a wonderful time. The stay was more than I expected since I have never stayed at a B & B I was quite surprised by how comfortable and charming it was. I can't wait to come back again.

Outstanding two nights

5 on July 29, 2013

Arrived and was treated like Family from the minute we stepped in the door. Everything is done to make you feel not like a guest, but like a Friend/Family. They even went out of their way to ensure no matter what our schedule was we were treated to the same breakfast as the normally scheduled breakfast time. And the FOOD..WOW.

A Michigan treasure.

What a nice break from the usual hotel environment. Definitely will return to visit again. Almost hate to share the info cause it means competition for a wonderful stay at a place where the innkeepers are courteous entertaining and accommodating. The breakfast was a nice treat in the morning what a great value that left us feeling like we got a great deal! Next time we will stay longer! Ed n Deb Novi, mi

Hospitality At It's Best

5 on November 24, 2012

Doug & Robin made my stay a "Home Away From Home"! I spent two nights with these nice people and they went out of their way to care for me. I was in town to do some guided fishing on the Muskegon River and was told by my outfitter that he would pick me up at 7:00 AM each morning. Most places I know, wouldn't have a breakfast available until 7:00 or 8:00 AM. I was up at 5:30 and the coffee was ready as soon as I was dressed and a great breakfast ready by 6:00 AM ......... Unbelievable!

Very comfortable place to stay

A personalized B&B

4.6 on August 01, 2012

We have a very pleasant stay at this B&B. The Innkeepers are very nice and accommodating, they made us feel like we are at home and never treated us just like guests. I can say that the kind of service we received from them is very personalize as they really attended to all of our needs. They gave us a tour of the house, gave us all the informations that we needed (wi-fi, restaurants referral, etc). We never had the chance to visit the museum in Newaygo or explore the town but we definitely have a good stay. Mostly, we enjoyed the company of the Innkeepers.

Our Newago discovery

4.8 on July 27, 2012

We came to Newaygo to hear some of our daughters friends play in a blue grass concert at a summer camp. We had never heard of Newago, and were leery of staying in the only B & B in town. Much to our delight, however, we found a lovely retreat in this beautiful bed & breakfast. The rooms were tastefully appointed and very comfortable. Since this wasn't a "romantic getaway" as our usual stay at a bed & breakfast is we were pleasantly surprised to find a room with a pull out couch where my mother could sleep...and it was comfortable, too. Bedding was plentiful & the temperature could be set for any comfort level. The service was great. The only drawback was we wanted to rent a movie & there was no hook up to connect the DVD to the television. Our host, Doug was duly embarrassed by the oversight and I'm sure he will have it fixed for the next guests. He was so pleasantly responsive to any of our requests. The value was great for a B&B of this caliber. Cleanliness was superb. The dining was just what you live for at a B & B. While so many are going the way of "continental", Robin holds up the tradition of good, home-cooked breakfast, plentiful enough to stuff ourselves.....and the treats she leaves out in the afternoon for guests to indulge in.....well... let me just say we overindulged! Best of all, Robin & Doug are some of the most friendly people you'd want to meet and easy to talk to. Their narration of the history of the town was a delight for my history buff husband....oh and lest I added bonus is they feature an artist of the month and their work.....I saw some beautiful gourd art that added to the fun.
