Pardon my tardiness on the review, my wife and I stayed here in August of 2012. Kathy and Michael were wonderful hosts, and were friendly and personable while maintaining privacy. The food was excellent and the house/property was beautiful and peaceful. We would certainly recommend this to anyone, and would have no problems staying here again.

If you are looking for a tranquil get away, this is the place for you. It is only fifteen minutes away from home for us but it might as well have been 12 hours. With this being our first B&B experience, we couldn't have found better ambassadors than Kathy and Michael. The rooms were immaculate and the food was delicious. And, the cookies were irresistible. A very pleasant experience we will recommend to all of our friends.

Crimson Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The hostess and host were very accommodating, the room was charming. Very relaxing. Will be going back.

Our first B&B experience was amazing. The food, the hosts, the in-room massages were all perfection. We are hoping to come back in the winter to sit by the fire and watch the snow fall.

Comfortable & thoughtfully decorated room with all the amenities -- including home made cookies. A delicious breakfast in the sunroom and good conversation with our charming hosts. All in a peaceful woodland setting. Couldn't have asked for more.

Our stay at the Crimson Cottage Inn the Woods was a complete delight -- wonderful setting, uplifting decor, bedding to die for... all pushed over the top by their kind attention to my dietary needs. Thank you!

My husband and I chose this location to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversay. The innkeepers were very warm and friendly. Kathy had a lot of information about the surrounding area. Our room exceded our expectations on value, cleanliness and comfort. We had a great stay and look forward to a future trip back. The cottage is located near a wooded trail area and our after breakfast walk was memorable -we got a lot of nice pictures. Extremely serene. We'll definitely schedule a repeat trip. Make sure you make it down to breakfast to meet the other house guests and mingle, it was very enjoyable. Michael and Kathy made us feel like family when we were there.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights as an end of summer retreat. We were looking somewhere close to home (Chicagoland), but wanted a quiet and relaxing getaway. We couldn't have asked for more from the Crimson Cottage. Tucked away down a private drive, you truly feel miles away from everything even though you are in the heart of a residential area. The room itself was immaculate and had special touches to make the stay better. Delicious chocolate chip cookies, the best sheets I have slept on and a great movie selection made us feel truly taken care of. Breakfast was prompt and delicious each morning, complete with fresh fruit. Kathy and Michael gave great suggestions for dinners and local sites even on the rainy days. Definitely will recommend to friends and family

A B&B experience that will never be forgotten. Kathy and Michael are the most fabulous hosts, welcoming us into their home, as if we were family. By the time we left, we felt like family and enjoy keeping in touch with them. Christmas time at Crimson Cottage Inn is the most beautiful way to catch the wonder of the holidays. Decorations and warmth galore. Looking forward to another visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at the Crimson Cottage Inn the Woods. The room and common areas were beautifully appointed, comfortable and welcoming. Kathy and Michael were the consumate hosts and the food? Words cannot convey the yumminess encountered each morning. Baked french toast, italian sausage casserole and blueberry coffee cake. I've been home just two days and I'm already researching our return trip. Thanks to Kathy & Michael for a wonderful weekend. It was a pleasure meeting you!

Kathy and Michael have a lovely home that is very warm and inviting! They are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you have all of the comforts needed for your stay. The breakfasts are amazing and we certainly enjoyed the home-baked chocolate chip cookies that are always available!

We were a bit apprehensive about our first stay at a B&B, but Crimson Cottage Inn quickly calmed that. The innkeepers were welcoming and friendly. The inn was beautiful and clean. Above all the entire experience was relaxing, which is why we went!

My Husband and I stayed here after our wedding in July and it was just what we needed. The room was spacious, clean, and quiet and allowed us to decompress from our wedding day. Breakfast was served to us in our room on a cute cart and the food was very yummy. We definitely plan to return in the future.

Spacious, airy, immaculate rooms in a secluded wooded setting. The hosts were attentive and provided everything we needed and then some but were also unintrusive so that we had a great deal of privacy. State parks, bike paths, and hiking trails are minutes away. Several shopping areas are also a short drive away.

This is a lovely,clean B&B off of the beaten path close enough to Holland to enjoy the town but far enough away to feel like you are getting away from it all. Also very close to Holland Beach State Park with beautiful sand and views of Lake Michigan. As per other reviews-great choc.chip cookies!
4.8 on February 23, 2011
Kathy and Michael were exceedingly welcoming and accomodating. The house is quiet and removed from the activity of Holland, so relaxing is easy. The option to add massages to our stay was a great addition to our weekend, as was the French toast for breakfast. Great value, great stay.

For the first time in 2 years my wife and I had a night alone without our 3-1/2 year old son. The Crimson Cottage was beautifully decorated, a beautiful setting, and a comforting place of rest and relaxation. Our suite was amazing. We felt at home and the hosts made an absolutely wonderful breakfast delivered to our room door. We will definitely be back and, in fact, want to bring 2 other couples to enjoy this awesome place.

My wife and I thouroughly enjoyed our time at Crimson Cottage. It is a beautifully maintained property, and the woods surrounding the house added to the secluded feel. The proximity to Lake Michigan was an added bonus. The owners were extremely friendly and hospitable, and the breakfasts were quite delicious. We can gladly recommend Crimson Cottage to anyone who is looking for a getaway!

My husband and I stayed at Crimson Cottage for 3 nights to see the Holland, Saugatuck, and Grand Haven areas. From the time we arrived until we had to say goodbye we felt cozy, comfortable, and welcomed! The place is gorgeous, CLEAN, and owned by an extremely friendly couple who make their guests right at home. The breakfasts were out of this world, as were the always-available chocolate chip cookies outside our room!! We loved everything about our stay and the area, and will definitely be back, and have already recommended the place to family and friends.

I always tell myself that I will pamper myself on a cold, winter day. My friend and I found just the right spot! Wow! A beautiful suite with fireplace, large window, whirlpool, breakfast in bed, and more!

As a return visitor, I've found both of my stays at the Crimson Cottage to be fantastic and relaxing. It's the perfect place for girls getaway weekend. The rooms are well-decorated, clean and comfortable. Extra amenities like a coffee pot and refrigerator are included in each room, and fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies are plentiful. The scones and french toast are amazing!

The Crimson Cottage Inn the Woods is nestled among Michigan's beautiful scenery close to the charming downtown shops of Holland. After visitng for the first time last year, we were anxious to return to 'our happy place.' Thanks to Kathy and Michael for creating an open, warm, and relaxing getaway. We can't wait to visit again!

My fiance and I had a wonderful experience at Crimson Cottage Inn the Woods. The house and rooms we're beautiful: Very clean, spacious and comfortable. The homemade breakfast was delicious, fresh and delivered right to your room if you requested. The innkeepers we're very kind, inviting and eager to make our stay a truly memorable experience by helping me plan my proposal during our stay. Thank you Kathy and Michael, and we will be sure to return to Crimson Cottage Inn the Woods again!

We will come again.

My wife and I loved the forest view from our room and the very well done grounds around the house. Everything was so clean and relaxing, it made for a great stay. We had a great time talking to Kathy and Michael over breakfast (which was so great that we didn't even need lunch). They have a love for B&Bs and it shows. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone else.
