Its elegance and sophistication have made it popular for special events, wedding nights,private dinners and anniversary celebrations. Located only 10 minutes from downtown Holland, Michigan, “The Baert Baron Mansion” which is registered as a Historical landmark is a significant example of the 19th century.
The Baron Suite is our most luxurious and spacious suite at the Mansion and is on the main floor. Significant vintage stenciling covers the 11 foot ceiling in this sizeable suite.

The generous sitting areas feature a Victorian love seat and four chairs where you can watch the flat screen television, use the DVD to watch a movie, or use our high speed internet at your leisure. A period oak table for two will allow you to enjoy breakfast or late night snacks in the privacy of your room.
The Attic Suite is tucked away from the rest of the Mansion where you can experience your very own hide-away from the rest of the world. This suite calls out to you to pick up a good book and settle down in one of the two rich leather chairs in this incredible affectionate and restful suite. The Attic features two bedrooms, a sunken living area, and open bath. The largest room has a queen-size bed with beautiful linens, two leather chairs with matching ottomans, large screen TV, DVD player to see a movie, and high speed internet.

The adjoining private dressing and bathroom feature an oversized corner bathtub for soaking with shower, a large vintage sink, time period oak dresser with large mirror, and plush towels.

Our stay with Vic and Anna offered a lovely reprieve from the busy lifestyle that we lead. I appreciated Anna's gift of hospitality and talent for fostering relationships. We experienced the wisdom and comraderie of the guests during our stay through insightful conversation....imagine breakfast taking an hour every day! As parents of three busy kids, it was very nice to feel served, whether it's coffee, tea, breakfast or dessert. We love this area and visit yearly and will definitely consider staying again with Vic and Anna.

We had 4 night stay with Anna and Vic, including a catered garden luncheon for 30+ family and friends over July 4 weekend. It was a perfect weekend. As others have indicated, Anna and Vic are gracious hosts with astute attention to detail. The home is immaculately restored, as are the furnishings. Genuine antiques are throughout the home. But the furnishings are also for using, not just looking at. Beds frames are upgraded from antique sizes to Queen. We hosted a family birthday party in the garden. The garden is easily large enough for a 20x30 tent, 8 tables. Vic gathered wireless speakers, video, microphone, etc for our event. Anna (and family/staff) also handled the food for our event and it was wonderfully presented. For our day at Holland Beach and Fireworks, they gathered beach chairs and blankets for the family to use. It is clear Anna and Vic love what they are doing. They like to get to know you and are focused on your needs during your stay. If not renting the entire home as we did, I would suggest opting for either T¿HE BARON SUITE or DR. BAERT SUITE as they are cream of the crop within the home. They each have suite style bathrooms. But all rooms have their unique charm. If in the Holland/Zeeland area, I would definitely recommend a stay at this wonderful B&B
Oh my goodness, what a wonderful review you have given us, thank you so much. Your family was a delight to our busy week-end and your Dad was a gift to our souls. It's not every day that we feel as though we are a part of someones family but you made us feel a part of the Decker Clan. We loved the stories, enjoyed hearing the giggles, and was delighted that you enjoyed all the goodies that we offered.Please know if you are ever in this area you are always welcome to grace our table with your presence. Vic & Anna

Loved our stay at the Baert Baron Mansion. It was just as I imagined - a delight to all our senses. Beautiful home and decor, delicious food and treats, gorgeous grounds in a storybook location, all lovingly offered to us for a few days. We only wish we had more time in each day to just spend at the mansion - visiting even more with the interesting guests, sharing stories with our fun and gracious hosts, enjoying both the views and the viewpoints out on the veranda. Next time!
There are some guests that leave a water mark on our lives when they leave, you were that type of guests. Thank you for spending your mini vacation with us and are desire is to see you again if you ever pass this way again. Hugs Anna

(Anastasia wrote this :) ) The Baert Baron Bed and breakfast is just simply amazing. This house is gorgeously restored and the rooms are all very homey , cozy, and have a very nice feel to them. Anna, Vic , and Buddy were more than welcoming . They made you feel like family ((i meam that as a compliment ) It was great to talk , and spend time with them. Annas stories are actually very interesting. And my god can that lady cook!! If oure reading this, your food is amazing. Now I do recall them saying theyre pretty new to the whole bed and breakfast aspect . But to be honest you cant tell. Its almost as if theyve been doing it sense they were born! Simply astonishing services. Cleanliness was near spotless. And I also must thank yall for letting me borrow your bikes ! It was hard to go. Im goin to be completely honest i feel that we all made an emotional connection. Kind of like having to leave family after visiting that you haven't seen in ages. But I wont blabber on . This is definitely a place ill be nagging the grandparents to go back to . And id recommend this place to anyone.
Beautiful young lady. How delighted we were to have you stay with us with your Grand parents. Your review was so sweet and hearing from a teenager about their stay was so special. Your a lucky girl to have grandparents who wrap their arms around your life and encourage you to be all you can be on this journey call life. Please know you are always welcome at our home. Hugs

Had a fantastic experience for our anniversary weekend! Would definitely recommend to anyone passing through Holland/Zeeland...priced comparably to a regular hotel, but much more special!

My sisters and I recently stayed at the Baert Baron Mansion B&B. We enjoyed our time there and the gracious hospitality of Vic and Anna. They have restored this home to it's original splendor while still making it feel welcoming and homey. We decided to call it a Bed, Breakfast and Beyond since there were so many extras not normally part of a B&B!! Kudos, Anna and Vic!!
You are one of the most amazing 4 sisters I've ever been around and I will always remember you ladies for the laughter I heard coming out of the Baron Suite and the hours of cards games that was played under our roof. Thanks for the memories...

My Sisters and I try meet twice a year for a getaway and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The warm atmosphere and hospitality shown by Anna Karen and Victor David surpassed our expectations! Beverly Jill, Anita Louise, Sharon Kay and Nancy Ann
When I saw your names on this review, I just smiled. You were the sweetest ladies. I can almost hear the laughter still coming out of your Suite and down the hallway as you played cards for hours. Thanks for the beautiful memories of 4 lovely sisters. hugs

My husband and I stayed at the Baert Baron Mansion to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. It was our first time here but, won't be the last. I have to say it was the best decision we made. We wanted something relaxing and we sure did find it here. I cannot say enough about this mansion and especially the service. From the minute you walk in thru those doors the owners treat you as if you're family. The rooms are huge, the decor just beautiful and oh! the food! You will not go hungry that's for sure. We have stayed in various B&B's before but, thus far, this has been the best experience. If you want to be pampered, you need to come to Baert Baron Mansion. Thank you! Veronica and Taiwon.
How precious it was to see your lovely review. You both were so kind and grateful for everything we did for you. Guests like you make our jobs easy. It would be wonderful to see you again sometime soon if you can get away for a few day. Our door is always open to you. We pray your having a wonderful summer and enjoying this weather. Hugs Anna Karen

Randy and Terri: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast and night time treats were so delicioius. The location is in a city residential area but was quiet and clean. Our room and the common areas were elegant. Our hosts were helpful with our questions and made dining suggestions, etc that we took advantage of. We would highly recommend.
Thank you so much for a lovely review. You were the sweetest couple and we hope you took home some amazing memories. Please know we hope to see you again in the future..Hugs
