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.

We desperately needed some time away to relax and be refreshed, and we got what we came for, and more. Our room and your home was beautiful. Your hospitality and help that you offered made our stay so relaxing and enjoyable. Breakfast, and night time snacks were nothing short of wonderful. We came for the beach in Holland, and it was so easy to get there from Zeeland. Zeeland itself is a beautiful little town, and we enjoyed our visit there. Getting to know you Anna, and Vic, was a great time of fellowship, and we will never forget that. God bless you greatly for your labor of love for Him. Hope we get to come back again some time. Love, the Miracles
How very delightful to receive your review on your stay with us. You were the sweetest guests and we will always remember our talks about life and our desire to make a difference in the world around us. Know you are always welcome at our table. Hugs....Anna Karen

We have stayed at many B&B's all over the country and the Baert Baron Mansion is by far our favorite! Thank you, Vic and Anna for opening your home and your hearts. What a blessing it was to be on the receiving end of your ministry! Thanks especially for the last minute revisions to the breakfast menu to accommodate my food allergies. We loved discovering the history of your home and appreciate all the effort you put into restoring it. I feel as though we started out as guests but parted as friends. Blessings to you both! --Chet and Robyn Strawinski
Thank you for your kind words, our desire is to always treat guests as though they were our family or old friends. We are glad that you left with some sweet memories to hold close to your heart. When I seen your review I just smiled thinking of your stay with us. Come again and stay a bit longer

We stayed at the Baert Baron Mansion last week in the first floor room. The bathroom is beautiful and as big as most bedrooms. It has a shower big enough for two with a rain shower head and a claw foot tub. The antiques are amazing. Anna brings dessert to your room each night, home made and delicious. Breakfast was at 9:00 and delicious. You won't be disappointed if you stay here. I hope to go back.
We hope you'll come back to, you were a blessing to our busy world of serving all who pass through are doors as guests. You have the sweetest hearts and it was a delight to serve you. We sure hope you'll come again and stay a little longer. Hugs Anna Karen

I choose the attic suite, for it was me to a T. It was decorated so beautifully and I felt like royalty living in luxury. We even had a tray of beautifully wrapped treats and snacks waiting for us on our bed. The owners go way above and beyond to make sure your stay is remarkable. The rest of the house was also exquisite with antiques, beautifully decorated and lovely smells throughout the whole house as if she had been preparing deserts all day. Anna the owner, graciously showed me the other suites and gave me a tour of the entire place. The breakfast the next day was literally fit for a King. Extremely delicious and more than enough food was served. We also enjoyed our host and other quests as we all sat around the table and got to know one another. The added bonus of a late night treat was even cooked and prepared for us as well as being served what ever drink we wanted. The owners are the most welcoming, down to earth, loving people I have ever met. We were greeted as if we were old friends, given hugs and made to feel as if we were at home the minute we arrived. I have honestly never stayed at a place I felt so at home, welcomed and safe. The is no need to lock your door to your room and no worries at all of strangers lurking near or the feeling of being in a place that is not safe. The neighborhood is immaculate and the neighbors even came over to sit a while on the porch and greet us. My husband and I were even given the opportunity to entertain our hosts. My husband and I play and sing bluegrass style music, so we got the honor of picking out on the porch. All the other guests came and listened as did the neighbors. It was a blessing to be able to have such a fantastic place to stay. I cannot recommend Baert Baron Bed and Breakfast highly enough. It was the best place I have ever stayed in my entire life. Any one choosing to stay there would be blessed beyond their expectations and treated like royalty as we were.
Wow, I was humbled at the review you did on us. You both were such a delight to all the guests, neighbors and us with your down to earth music, I loved it. After you left some other neighbors wanted to know why they were not invited to the Party. We hope you got your baby goats picked up and safety home in one piece. If your ever our way again, plan on having a few songs ready for us and our guests and neighbors, what a gift you are. Hugs... Anna Karen

I was thrilled to get your review, you and your husband were so kind to us. It was Vic & I who were blessed with your heart felt conversations and servant hearts.. I want you to know that Vic loves the caramel recipe you gave me and our guests can't get enough of them. My grown children are watching their diets but they cheat over those goodies of yours. It would be a delight to see you again, your fellowship was a breath of fresh air. Hugs Anna Karen

My wife and I, and two other couples spent the weekend at the mansion with Vic and Anna. It was like coming home! Anna was a very loving mother, loving and caring, and a fantastic cook! (WOW what a cook). Vic was a pleasure, bringing us desert at night and very nice person. In all it was a pleasure to be there and can't wait to get back not just for the house and surroundings, but to see our new friends in Vic and Anna. Outstanding, clean, peaceful, place to visit.
Thank you for your great review, All of you were so sweet and great guests. We love it when couples come and spend a few day. There's nothing like good friends enjoying their time to gather and telling stories on each other. It is our desire to see you again someday in the future, you are always welcome at the Mansion. Hugs, Anna Karen

Thank you Vic and Anna for the amazing tea party you coordinated. It was a surprise 40th birthday party for a dear friend and we had a great time! The food was excellent, the hot lavender tea and lavender pound cake were heavenly. Your kindness and generosity were truly a blessing. While we did not stay at the bed and breakfast overnight, our afternoon tea party will be a wonderful memory. We did get a tour and the rooms are so clean and very beautiful. The decorations and atmosphere are very calming and peaceful. We all felt like we stepped back in time. Thank you again and God bless you and your family!
It was an honor to serve you and your guests for an afternoon. Truly you are an amazing friend to the ladies who spent the afternoon at the Mansion. You could see the love they had for one another and we were grateful that we were a small part of a huge surprise. You are always welcome in our home, so stop by for so lemonade and chat. Hugs... Anna Karen

This was my first B&B experience and it has set the bar for me. Not only were Anna and Vick wonderful and engaging but their attention to every detail of our stay was over the top. The bread pudding delivered to our room at 9:30 pm was over the top. I had no idea Bed and Breakfasts were like this!!!
You were the sweetest guests and it was our delight to serve you for a few moments in time. When you want to run away from home for a few days, we'd be delighted to see you again at the Mansion. Anna Karen
