My wife and I have been taking short breaks in our hectic life at Michigan's B&Bs for the last ten years or so. It gives us time to catch our breath, and refresh our connection with each other. We do not generally visit the same place twice. Baert Baron Mansion is an exception to the rule. We just completed our second stay, and loved every minute of it. We welcomed the first signs of spring in the warm and inviting atmosphere of this magnificent home. We were welcomed by our kind hosts, Vic and Anna, and were immersed in the deep sense of a gentle past long gone by. Throughout our weekend stay, we were surrounded by the most pleasant kind of environment, and were touched by the warmth and genuine interest as expressed in our pleasant conversations with them. While our minds and spirits were rejuvenated, our palettes and appetites were pampered as well. Anna is the consummate cook, to the core. Her breakfasts were a delight for the senses. The added treat of a nightly desert was a wonderful addition to our experience. Peace, beauty, grace, elegance, good food and good company. These are the recipe for refreshing interlude. We will return, yet again.
Thank you your wonderful review, for a moment while reading it I thought you might have logged into our web-page accidentally, but than realized that it was you, the sweet couple who shared some long talks with us over breakfasts & desserts about life and our own personal journeys. Your words of kindness about your stay was very humbling to both of us. We have try to create a place of comfort, warmth, tranquility and serenity for all our guests while they are here. You came here two years ago as our guests for the first time but you left here a few days ago as our friends. Vic & Anna

Vic and Anna are 2 of the nicest people you could meet. The home was immaculate. The food was wonderful. My car leaked oil on the driveway, and they not only weren't upset, Vic actually found the cause of the leak and helped fix it until I got home.
You were a delight to us and we were just worried you'd have problems making it all the way home. Glad you did, come again and bring more friends. Anna

Two girlfriends arrived on a chilly night and we're greeted warmly by Vic and Anna. We were given a tour of their lovely home and given a pick of the rooms. We chose the cozy attic room and it did not disappoint. It had me at "Hello" with a warm plate of chocolate chip cookies awaiting. One thing that our hosts know how to do well is "feed you". From the cookies, to the delicious breakfasts, to the evening desserts we felt truly pampered. I have stayed in many B&B's and I can say with confidence that this was the best one I have been to. It's all the homey touches that make the difference. We spent the days shopping but all other time was spent talking, talking, and talking some more under soft, cozy throws spread on our chairs. We will definitely be back and until then I will be thinking about Anna's delicious carrot cake!
You ladies were such a blessing to us, your warm smiles and gentle spirits made a long day seem short, please know you are always welcome at our table......

This is a beautiful, well-maintained historic B&B. We arrived as strangers but left feeling like we were family. Anna & Vic's passion for their home and for their guests comfort is evident in every thing they do. We look forward to returning.
It's guests like you that make our job as Inn Keepers easy. Come again when you get a chance.
