I have always wondered about staying at a B&B and last year while visiting St. Augustine FL. we toured one and thought it would be nice to try one. Well, while planning a visit to Kalamazoo for a family event we searched the internet and found the Kalamazoo House. The pictures of the outside and inside were very impressive so we booked a 2 night stay and we were not disappointed.The home was walking distance to the downtown district on a quiet one way street. Upon arrival we were greeted by Terry & Laurel the owners and instantly felt welcome. They showed us around and explained the house's history. Later that evening we were treated to milk and homemade cookies and asked to write down our breakfast requests from about 5 of Terry's personnal concoctions. They all looked delicious and it was a tough decision. We were not disappointed. Our 2 choices were fantastic and we were even priveleged to get a recipe for one particular favorite. The bed linens that they use are by far the best I have ever slept on and our room was spacious and immaculate. The only downside was that the room that we chose happened to be on the third floor which meant a lot of stair climbing. I would highly recommend staying with the Parrotts at the Kalamazoo House if you are ever in the area.

I attended a 3-day conference and chose to stay at the Kalamazoo House instead of the conference hotel. So glad I did! the room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were out of this world good.

Kalamazoo House is a very nice B&B in a great location in Kalamazoo. If you want to be able to walk downtown and to Kalamazoo College, you can't beat it. Terry and Laurel were very friendly. The rooms were clean and very nice, and most of them had a sitting area as well. Breakfast was good, and the cookies in the evening were a nice touch! I would definitely stay there again, and would recommend it to others.

We went there for our 49th anniversary. The house was beautiful and Laurel and Terry were wonderful innkeepers. Brunch with its many choices was excellent. We highly recommend this B & B as a must stay.

Our two night stay in Kalamazoo House was very pleasant and relaxing. The owners have attempted to restore the house to its1878 spendour and have succeeded very well. Our room was comfortable, very clean, and with all the expected amenities. Breakfast was served in a charming, sunny front parlor and the individual tables and menu choices makes this B&B a step ahead of others. Laurel, one of the owners, was quick to find a walking tour of Kalamazoo for me, when I inquired, and both she and her husband Terry were very knowledgeable about Kalamazoo. Their dining recommendation, Rustica, was spot on. The inn was very quiet; though full, we weren't aware of the other guests when in our room. All in all, and excellent stay.
