Beautiful house, fabulous stay!

4.6 on September 25, 2013

We stayed one night here this past winter in the Turret Room upstairs. The room was so cozy - there was wood stocked so we could build a fire, which was magnificent - and the bed was fantastic. The entire house was full of history, about the current owners, the original owners, and mid-Michigan in general. The couple who runs the B&B are delightful people, incredibly friendly, and very accommodating. We stayed with our two children (who slept on the floor in their sleeping bags), and they had a blast. Just remember, there is a hot tub, so bring your swimsuits. We forgot ours, and now we get asked when we're going back so we can have cocoa, play games, and go in the hot tub! This is seriously a great little getaway for just the two of you, or for your family :)


Live a slice of history

4.2 on June 11, 2013

We have stayed at a number of bed and breakfast establishments, but none as steeped in history as Saravilla. I am so glad that our first three choices for the get-away were completely booked. Saravilla was our fourth choice; but it will be at the top of our list the next time we find ourselves in the area. Saravilla is a grand, turn-off-the-last-century mansion with all the magnificence that you would imagine. In our travels, we have visited some magnificent mansions and plantation homes, but for an hour or two. As a guest at Saravilla, you get to spend your days and nights living and sleeping with the opulence of a bygone era. It is truly an experience with history and a step back into time. But if you like to have your modern amenities along with your time travels, TV is in your room and wireless internet is available throughout the home. We stayed in the Turret Room. No expense was spared to make this room comfortable and to add the little touches of elegance. The bed spreads, blankets, washcloths, and towels were all Ralph Lauren. The towels, especially, were a joy to use after exiting the in-room whirlpool spa following a long day on the Fred Meijer Heartland trail riding bikes. The Turret room features a king-size bed, which is often hard to find in a bed and breakfast. Saravilla is just a wonderful place to take a step back into time and immerse yourself in the full grandeur of a bygone era.


Welcoming Stay

Six of of us just finished a one night stay at Saravilla. Hosts John and Linda were gracious and accommodating. This historic home was worth the stay alone, and John was a font of information. We'll be back in the fall to do it again!


Comfy Cozy

We loved our stay at Saravilla. Such a treat to stay in a beautiful Victorian home from a time gone by. I feel like I stepped into a Downton Abby episode for a few minutes because of the Victorian age charm and service. The rooms are eclectic, comfortable and far more enjoyable than any local hotel. So if midmichigan is your destination or if you just need a few days away check out Saravilla - you will be so happy that you did!


Charming Victorian Home

5 on January 21, 2013

If you love to immerse yourself in times gone by I highly recommend Saravilla. There is a certain charm to old houses and this one has been lovingly restored and maintained by the owners. We loved everything about our stay; the rich dark woods, the window seats, the turrets and twists, the ballroom which now houses pool and ping pong with room to spare. Tucked off to one side is a garden room with a hot tub and exercise equipment. I am impressed that the owners are able to take such an expansive and elaborate house and make it feel so welcoming and homey. There is a little kitchenette for guests to use with a mini fridge, beverages, pretzels, etc, glasses, etc. There are chocolates by your bed side and robes in the closet. We chose to stay in the Highland room and we were offered and upgrade, but the room was very charming and we couldn't resist the plaid. We kept the room we had booked and it was toasty warm on a cold winter night. The bathroom was across the hall, but I believe all the rooms have their own bathrooms. This one was part of the original nursery with a sweet brick wall and an original fire place. It was a quirky little bathroom, but very elegant, we loved it. Breakfast and conversation in the morning were delightful and we will definitely be back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so very much for your kind words about your stay at Saravilla Bed & Breakfast. We try hard to provide a wonderful experience for our guests and it's rewarding to know we succeeded. We look forward to seeing you again when you are in need of lodging in the area.
