Home Away From Home

5 on May 19, 2011

We visit family in Michigan at least twice a year and this is the place we prefer to stay instead of any other including hotels. Lourdean is a great friend now and the conversations pick up right where we left off. The breakfast will keep you full right through lunch! Both Gary and Lourdean are great cooks and the egg dishes and baked goods are wonderful! The backyard is really pretty with several birds and squirels. They have a hot tub in a screen patio that has little tables so you can even have a snack and drink out there in a romantic atmosphere. They have a den to watch their big movie collection on a big flat screen tv. The den has a pool table, snacks and a little fridge with local beers and wine! They know the area well should you need a few ideas for what to do around there. Everything is clean and the property well taken care of. Its like a little vacation everytime we go!

My sister and I were welcomed warmly to Waterloo Gardens, enjoying a delightful two night stay there recently. Comfortable beds and excellent breakfasts were appreciated, with a large variety of snacks, pop and bottled water at our disposal. Our friendly, outgoing hosts Lourdean and Gary, along with Jessie, the resident doggie, made for a memorable experience. When in the area again to visit The Purple Rose theatre, we would return to Waterloo Gardens without hesitation. A happy Canadian duo...

Better than home!

My husband, my daughter and myself stayed with Gary and Lourdean last fall and we just had the best time. You feel like so welcome from the moment you arrive. The rooms are decorated so nicely and the beds are comfy. Wear your stretchy pants to breakfast because they make a great spread! We will definitely be back.

Very Comfortable and Good Breakfast

The beds are comfortable and queen size. Lourdean makes a very good breakfast that I will look forward to again! The hot tub is wonderful! There is even a little refridgerator with a few samples of local beers and wine that you can sample!

Like staying at Grandmas House!
