Clean, Comfortable, and well situated!

4.4 on July 26, 2014

The location was perfect for walking out the door for a stroll through Saugatuck! Very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Wish we could've stayed longer.

Excellent Weekend!

5 on July 24, 2014

Nine of us stayed at Serendipity over the past weekend in various rooms and suites- it was outstanding, especially the breakfasts whether you ate them in the dining room or they were delivered to your suite. A wonderful location with off street parking and genial and informative hosts. A great find in Saugatuck!

Library Suite Is Perfect

5 on July 23, 2014

The Library room is perfect space for a small group or family. The two bedrooms are perfectly sized for two adults. There is a living room for indoor conversation and a porch for "indoor/outdoor" conversation. There is a spacious private bath for the suite. The breakfast basket was lovely. David was very kind. The proximity to the water and main shopping/dining area is perfect. I highly recommend the Library Room at Serendipity. I am aware that the rooms in the main house share a bathroom - so inquire about that if this is important to you. It is important to me and I won't stay at a B&B with shared bathroom space. However, the Library Suite was absolutely perfect.

Will stay here again!

4.6 on July 16, 2014

PERFECT getaway!!!

4.8 on July 09, 2014

What a perfect place to stay. We shared the Library suite with another couple and all 4 of us laughed, ate, drank, shopped, relaxed and enjoyed our annual visit in town. This was a 1st at serendipity and we will be back!!!!

Serendipity exceed our expectations

5 on July 02, 2014

We had no reservations and David, the owner went way out of his way to make sure we had choices for resteraunt a, beaches etc.

Perfect location for a special Saugatuck weekend

4.4 on June 25, 2014

Excellent location in Saugatuck. Lightkeeper's cottage was our own cozy oasis--a separate, private building just for the 2 of us. Bed is in a loft which was no issue...but might be if you are not comfortable climbing a ladder. Tasty breakfast in a picnic basket left at our door each morning. Very helpful and friendly hosts. Private hot tub a nice touch. Only quibble is that the tub was warm, not hot...and water level was a bit low. We would definitely return.

Very Charming B&B

5 on June 15, 2014

You feel that you are at home from the very first minute. The owner couple grave us a very warm welcome and it was so nicke tot have conversation with them. Everything has been done with great love from all the interior up to the great breakfast meal. I wish we could have extended our stay for another few days. We have Great memories and we would like to come back one day. Best Regards the couple from Germany

Nostalgic Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on June 10, 2014

The breakfast was outstanding as well as the hospitality. The owners were so kind and friendly. We felt very comfortable as this was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. We also enjoyed looking at the landscape all around the home and its location made it possible for us to walk to all the shops and restaurants.

Great hosts and location
