Come experience the refreshing surroundings and simple joys of our traditional bed and breakfast. Hospitality at A Country Place is our specialty with personal attention given to your every need. Our restored, century old, Greek revival is situated on two acres of woodland with a beach access to Lake Michigan one-half block away. It is a perfect setting for those restful and romantic getaways. The focal point of the back lawn is a screened gazebo where nature can be appreciated to the fullest. The gazebo is also a perfect place to enjoy a picnic, read a good book or just relax. A scrumptious breakfast featuring home baked goodies from our kitchen is served at 9:00am. Weather permitting, breakfast is served on the spacious deck or during the Spring and Fall, breakfast is served in the formal dining area. Your pleasure may be spending time at the beach, shopping, fishing, golfing or enjoying special events. Hiking and bicycling can be enjoyed on the thirty-four linear-mile Kal-Haven Trail State Park.

My friends and I stayed here at the end of September 2013 and it is AWESOME ! The place is clean and they have all the utensils for cooking and amenities to live comfortably ! Short walk to the beach and they provided single speed cruisers to bicycle in to town and sight see ! Definitely a great place to stay on vacation :)

We enjoyed three Sept. nights at A Country Place. John was a gracious and helpful host. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived at this quaint Bed And Breakfast. The room was inviting, comfortable and very clean. The full breakfast was good, with a different entree all 3 mornings. Little extras like the Cream Sherry, Hershey kisses, and homemade sugar cookies were an extra special touch. John was also attentive to our allergy needs. The overall value far exceeded my expectations. The beach is a short walk with a wooden stairwell descending a large bluff to the beach, there is a built in double bench at the top with a tremendous view.
