Girl's getaway

3.6 on August 22, 2016

Everything was great, except there wasn't any coffee in the suite. We had our breakfast delivered, but it would have been nice to have a cup of coffee in the room, before 9:15. Everything else was wonderful!

Stableman's SWEET

5 on August 11, 2016

Could not be any happier with our choice of B&B in Saugatuck; we stayed in their Stableman's Suite (loft style layout) and it was super roomy - which felt even bigger with the vaulted ceiling. Had its own kitchen countertop/sink (no stove though!) and a nice fridge where we stored fruit and the leftover scones from our first breakfast. The breakfast in our room was delivered to our door in a picnic basket each morning. The meals were piping hot and savory - accompanied by scone/blueberry coffee cake and mixed fruits each morning. Fantastic way to start a morning! Only suggestion would be hot sauce packets of some kind with the breakfast? service was slamming too, david was always available by phone when we needed him. Highly recommend!


The Serendipity B&B, a fine place to stay!

4.4 on August 11, 2016

The only negative thing that occurred, was a helasious noise one evening in a close proximity to the back bedroom, which kept my friend up all evening, and she complained to me about it the next morning. I did not hear the noise, as my bedroom was in the front of the house. I called it to David's (innkeeper) attention, he figured out the problem to be the watersoftner which recycled at 2:00 AM. David adjusted the timer on the watersoftner to recycle during the day when were out, thus the problem was solved.


Great Place and a Perfect Location

3.6 on August 09, 2016

Had a recent two night stay with some friends for a girls weekend. Our stay at Serendipity was great. The location close to downtown, once we arrived we didn't need to drive during our stay. Accommodations were perfect for us; plenty of room to hang out and visit. We loved the enclosed front porch. Breakfast was wonderful; brought to our suite every morning. The innkeepers were very friendly and available for any questions. Suggested activities. This was not my first stay at the b & b and won't be the last


Serendipity B&B was a great experience

Great stay and great breakfast!


Cozy and convenient

4.2 on August 07, 2016

We spent two nights at Serendipity. The location was great for wandering around town, but also easy to get over to Douglas or up to Holland without having to drive through the pedestrian-heavy parts of Saugatuck. Our room was small, but that comes with the territory of an old building, and it still had the creature comforts we expect from a B and B stay. Coffee and tea were brought upstairs in the morning before we went down for breakfast, and breakfast was delicious. Just enough to start your day and feel energized to go, but not so much that you over ate. David and June were full of great suggestions about things to do and places to explore.


Charming B&B

3.4 on July 27, 2016

Great B&B for a weekend getaway! We stayed with another couple in one of the suites. Very close to downtown Saugatuck with lots of shops and restaurants. David and June were very helpful with recommendations and provided a fabulous breakfast delivered to our door every morning.
