Serendipitous Getaway

4.0 on June 03, 2016

We woke up the morning of 5-28-16 feeling the urge to have a 2 day getaway. We booked 2 nights at the Baert Baron Mansion. We were greeted with a great welcoming smile by Vic. He carried bags, offered snacks, lemonade, conversation, what to do suggestions, etc. What a comfortable start. Anna was soon to follow with her aura of southern charm. My wife and I frequent BnB's around the country. None was more welcoming than this stay. Anna and Vic exude with an authentic appreciation for the presence of their guests. We felt blessed to become friends with 2 outstanding hosts! The charm of the historic mansion was clean, comfortable, quiet, and amazingly appointed. Kathy & Gerry Bryan OH

Beautifully appointed Victorian home. Extremely friendly and courteous hosts. Enjoyed the stay which took place during tulip time in Holland, Michigan. Would go back again, possibly staying in one of the other beautiful rooms. Excellent breakfast.


First Class Accommodations

Vic & Anna are such gracious hosts and the Mansion was exquisitely decorated. We felt right at home from the moment we walked in. We loved the antiques throughout the house. The breakfast was delicious and the evening snack hit the spot. We would highly recommend staying here.


Wonderful Tulip Time Visit

5 on May 18, 2016

My husband and I (and two other Utah couples) came to the Holland area last week for Tulip Time. We spent three wonderful, relaxing nights at the Baert Baron Mansion and loved every minute of our stay. Vic and Anna were gracious hosts who opened their hearts and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. They have lovingly restored the mansion and have wonderful stories to tell. This bed and breakfast not only included a delicious breakfast presented beautifully every morning, but also amazing homemade desserts and wonderful conversation every evening before bed. I've already been telling everyone I know that they need to go to Michigan and visit Vic and Anna at this beautiful mansion. We certainly hope to go back!


Our wonderful stay at Baert Baron Mansion

5 on May 14, 2016

From the beginning of our arrival and Anna's welcoming hug, we felt at home in the lovely Victorian Mansion. The room was spectacular and beautifully decorated and spacious. At 7:30pm we were treated to a delicious dessert. Anna served home made brownies topped with fresh strawberries and ice cream. The breakfast was wonderful also accompanied with pleasant conversation with Anna. We look forward to returning once again to the beautiful B&B.


Gorgeous Bed & Breakfast

Anna and Vic are amazing hosts yet so much more. They are so kind and caring making sure our every need was met even the ones we hadn't thought of. I loved the cheese cake, Carmel's chocolate ect. The room we were upgraded to on the main floor was so beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast was so lovely. Anna and Vic are so gracious we enjoyed talking with them at breakfast . You certainly blessed us. Mark and Patti


Great Place to Unwind!

5 on April 19, 2016

Little did I know how much my husband would need a weekend to be rejuvenated from working long hours for the past couple of months when I booked this B & B in January and that this was the perfect place for him to relax and be revived. God knew and He directed us to the Mansion at the suggestion of a friend from Zeeland. We couldn't have asked for more; the food was beyond delicious, the service superb and the friendliness of Vic and Anna was warming from the minute we walked in the door! Since we were the only guests that weekend, Anna upgraded us to their large suite on the main floor--what a unexpected treat! We were lavished upon all weekend with Anna's great cooking--not just did we receive gourmet breakfasts each morning, but tantalizing desserts each evening and snacks in the afternoon. Her chocolate covered strawberries are to die for. The casual yet elegant ambiance of the restored Mansion allowed my husband to leave refreshed and ready to carry on. The spiritual conversations around the table were inspiring and uplifting. We could feel God's presence through visiting with both Vic and Anna. We would definitely like to come back--maybe in the summer time when we can relax on the porch and admire the beautiful gardens. May God bless you as you minister to everyone whom He sends your way!


20th Annivesary Get-a-way

5 on April 18, 2016

Where do I begin about our wonderful stay at this B&B? What a fantastic night away. After 1 hour onsite, we knew we'd love to stay a week! From the amazing treats in our room upon arrival (oh my, those caramels!!) to the lovely surprise of evening dessert on our room (delicious cheesecake) to our gorgeous room. We loved it all! Our room - the Baron Suite, was beautifully decorated with every detail covered for a wonderful stay that made us feel pampered and special. It was like escaping to another world. By far the best part was our fantastic host/hostess, Anna and Vic. They made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and attended to every need. We so enjoyed chatting (and laughing!) with them and learning about their development of this B&B, which is truly a labor of love. The fabulous breakfast the next morning made it hard to leave. In fact we ended up staying a little later due to Vic's gracious offer to borrow their bikes and go for a ride around town on the gorgeous sunny day! Their generous hearts were such a blessing to us. We would reccommend this place to everyone and we can't wait to go back!! Sue and Tom


Truly enjoyed our stay

Vic and Anna have probably ruined future trips to any other B&B! This was our first...beautiful setting and rooms, wonderful, sweet, friendly couple, and great breakfast! Very quiet and clean. We will definitely be back.


Hockey Mama and Papa

“Hockey Mama and Papa” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago via mobile My wife and I found this gem of a B&B far enough away from the hockey players to enjoy the sweet smells of Anna's cooking and the comfort of the beautifully decorated and restored home. Anna was there to greet us as we arrived and tucked us into our room making certain that any need was attended to. Anna and Victor had inquired in advance of any special food sensitivities and provided for us wonderfully. Anna tempted us with home made confections and other welcomed snacks and joined us in the mornings with welcomed conversation and brought an equally welcomed spirituality to our presence as we ate our breakfast. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g42838-d4205606-r354779289-Baert_Baron_Mansion-Zeeland_Ottawa_County_Michigan.html#
