Great time

4.6 on August 15, 2013

What a great weekend my gal pals and I had in this beautiful home. Rooms were lovely, breakfast was awesome and Sue ( the Inn keeper) rocked. Dinner at Salt of the Earth was divine.

Great Porch and Setting

3.8 on August 27, 2012

We stayed just one night and found the Kingsley House to be a great find. The Innkeeper was very warm and welcoming and the B & B had a lot of extra touches that made our stay comfortable. Their coffee and tea was accompanied by flavored syrups to add to your beverage as one example. Having menus for area restaurants readily available, a frig stocked with bottled water, chocolates and cookies on the table to greet us, are just a few more special details that added value to our stay at the Kingsley House. Although some of "in the middle of nowhere" there is an outstanding restaurant in town called "Salt of the Earth". We would recommend the Kingsley House to anyone interested in a B & B in southwest Michigan.

Best B & B experience we've ever had.

4.8 on August 16, 2012

We only spent one night at the Kingsley, but that was enough to make it the best B & B we've stayed in. Our hostess greeted us immediately and had lots of suggestions as to what local and nearby attractions were and how to get to them. We tried some of them and were pleased. Our room was quaint and Victorian but had air conditioning and shower plus TV. The beds were soft and comfortable, and we had a great night's sleep. The next morning we had a tasty and well presented breakfast on the wide front porch. We enjoyed the lovely gardens and took pictures of some of the beautiful flowers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again some time.

First Bed and Breakfast Experience

4.0 on March 08, 2012

I was very hesitant to stay at a bed and breakfast because I felt that it would not be very private. It far exceeded my expectations! We stayed in the Cider Nook which had its own private entrance. The room was lovely! The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic. The innkeepers, Terri and Scott, were so friendly and so generous. I thought it was great how they had anything that you could possibly forgotten. Toothpast, bottled water, even wipes to remove make-up! That just shows their attention to detail. The food around the area was excellent as well! The weekend was just amazing, and I cannot wait to go back!

Wonderful Night in the Northern Spy Room

4.4 on December 07, 2011

I was wonderfully surprised by the great time we had at the Kingsley House this past November. The room was clean and ready when we got there and the bathroom had a two person jacuzzi tub which was very romantic. There was also a large selection of DVDs which we could use at anytime. The food was great and there was plenty of it. Terrie was very helpful and a delightful host. I'm sure we will be returning soon!
