The Belvedere offers the modern comforts that the 21st century traveller requires, with the tranquil relaxation of a traditional B&B. It is clear that the owners carefully thought through the needs of their guests while attempting to maintain the old world feel that the inn and surrounding property afford. While staying at the Belvedere for a wedding this past weekend, we were greeted with fantastic service by the staff, clean and comfortable beds, and rooms with ample space. We will certainly be choosing the Belvedere for our next stay in West Michigan!
