A Lovely Experience

4.6 on August 22, 2012

The only reason we rated the room a little lower was that the air conditioner was somewhat noisy for sleeping. But the decor was marvelous, the room very cozy, the gardens both pretty and interesting, the service excellent and the breakfast the best I have ever had in a bed and breakfast. overall, we thought this stay was well worth the money.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review of our Bed & Breakfast. Sorry about the AC. Window Air units tend to be noisier than central air and it is a little harder to adjust to the noise. Again, sorry. Hope to see you again someday.

Home away from home

4.6 on July 31, 2011

We stayed a week at the Wolcott House and it really felt like home. The house and its gardens are beautiful. The location provided easy access to any major destination we chose to travel. The Inn Keepers, Elaine and Sean were very accommodating to our needs, a delight to visit with and get travel information from. I can’t wait to go back and stay again.

Lovely room and an amazing breakfast!

My husband and I stayed here for one night and were very impressed. Our room was lovely and we both enjoyed looking at the photo albums and tiny Victorian treasures all over the house. Elaine promised us a "gourmet breakfast" in the morning and we were not disappointed! Everything was so delicious and the muffins were perhaps the best I ever had! I hope we can come back sometime in the summer to see the gardens sometime.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to showing you the gardens in the future. You are welcome back anytime.

our stays were satisfactory. we had a buy one get one stay- breakfasts were good- no special snacks-just packaged and rooms were not cleaned up 2nd night.

Innkeeper Response
I'm very sorry that these guests did not enjoy their stay with us, but to insinuate that our rooms are not cleaned is insulting. Our rooms are cleaned daily with no exception to details. We offer a variety of snacks for our guests and they often ask for recipies of the breakfasts they've enjoyed while here. Please do not judge our B&B by this guests comments. Come see for yourself what a beautiful and CLEAN B&B we have.

our 2 night stay at wolcott house

3.2 on June 20, 2008

most inn keepers are interested in their guests. ours never asked one thing about us. my sister-in-law likes hazelnut cream in her coffee, the host knew already but didn't bother to run out to the store earlier to get some. house was not clean as some others. breakfast was excellent. i wouldn't rate the stay an A but probably a B

Innkeeper Response
These guests were very upset that we would not upgrade them to our "Suite" on a buy one night get one night free certificate even though the guidelines are clearly spelled out in the guidebook where they obtained they obtained it. Our B&B is VERY CLEAN, and we take pride in taking care of it without any outside help. I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time.

Fenton Michigan's Litttle Gem

4.6 on January 20, 2008

Hospitality and History abounds in Fenton's Little Gem of a B & B "Wolcott House", set in the residential area, but within close walking distance of Downtown Fenton. Accommodations are cozy and comfy, oozing with historical charm, and decorated with the proprietor's numerous collections of period memorabelia, begging to have their stories told, which Elaine was so grascious to oblige. The food is delightfully decadent and the hospitality warm, friendly and pampering. We will be back!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again.
