Impersonal. No one greeted us. A paper said where to park and where our room was. The only contact was at breakfast, which was good. The room "English Cottage" didn't have the English cottage feel we expected. Mattress very comfortable, heated towel bars and toilet seat were a nice addition.
We decided to elope and wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast for a mini honeymoon. The room was extremely clean and well kept. The bed was comfy and large. We enjoyed the fireplace and Jacuzzi. The property is on 35 acres of beautiful wooded land. It's also very close to a bike trail. Jack made us a delicious breakfast both mornings we were there. He also made suggestions of what to do/see in the area. While there was no cable, there was a nice selection of DVDs. The only con about our room was how close it was to the main area of the house. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and it is right next to the main entrance, kitchen, and living room area. We were afraid of being too loud. We could also hear other guests leaving quite early. Other than that, the room was great and so was the owner. I would recommend a stay. We plan on going back!
Vic & Anna are such gracious hosts and the Mansion was exquisitely decorated. We felt right at home from the moment we walked in. We loved the antiques throughout the house. The breakfast was delicious and the evening snack hit the spot. We would highly recommend staying here.
My husband and I (and two other Utah couples) came to the Holland area last week for Tulip Time. We spent three wonderful, relaxing nights at the Baert Baron Mansion and loved every minute of our stay. Vic and Anna were gracious hosts who opened their hearts and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. They have lovingly restored the mansion and have wonderful stories to tell. This bed and breakfast not only included a delicious breakfast presented beautifully every morning, but also amazing homemade desserts and wonderful conversation every evening before bed. I've already been telling everyone I know that they need to go to Michigan and visit Vic and Anna at this beautiful mansion. We certainly hope to go back!
We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite for our 1st anniversary. We loved it! It's so peaceful. We especially enjoyed seeing the birds and squirrels. There are lots of feeders for them to play on. Who knew there are black squirrels? We didn't. If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to stay....this is it!
Allegan Country Inn is a perfect place to get together with family and friends. I've had the privilege of staying in this very well kept bed and breakfast during each of Michigan's beautiful seasons. Whether it was spring, fall, summer or winter, our stay has always been comfortable and simply delightful! Walks around the well manicured and landscaped lawn and pond, sipping coffee on the screened in porch, or just relaxing in the library, are just a few of the relaxing activities that make you feel right at home. In addition to the beautifully vintage themed decor, we had the opportunity to make use of the annex which is conveniently located just a few yards from the home. The annex was the perfect place for us to set up our sewing machines for quilt making and various tools for craft projects. The owner of this vintage home, Sheila Deaver, is the perfect hostess! She has a knack for being there just when you need her. Specific accommodations were always met with a smile and with immediate results. Thank you Sheila for always making us feel extra special!!
From the beginning of our arrival and Anna's welcoming hug, we felt at home in the lovely Victorian Mansion. The room was spectacular and beautifully decorated and spacious. At 7:30pm we were treated to a delicious dessert. Anna served home made brownies topped with fresh strawberries and ice cream. The breakfast was wonderful also accompanied with pleasant conversation with Anna. We look forward to returning once again to the beautiful B&B.
Anna and Vic are amazing hosts yet so much more. They are so kind and caring making sure our every need was met even the ones we hadn't thought of. I loved the cheese cake, Carmel's chocolate ect. The room we were upgraded to on the main floor was so beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast was so lovely. Anna and Vic are so gracious we enjoyed talking with them at breakfast . You certainly blessed us. Mark and Patti
Little did I know how much my husband would need a weekend to be rejuvenated from working long hours for the past couple of months when I booked this B & B in January and that this was the perfect place for him to relax and be revived. God knew and He directed us to the Mansion at the suggestion of a friend from Zeeland. We couldn't have asked for more; the food was beyond delicious, the service superb and the friendliness of Vic and Anna was warming from the minute we walked in the door! Since we were the only guests that weekend, Anna upgraded us to their large suite on the main floor--what a unexpected treat! We were lavished upon all weekend with Anna's great cooking--not just did we receive gourmet breakfasts each morning, but tantalizing desserts each evening and snacks in the afternoon. Her chocolate covered strawberries are to die for. The casual yet elegant ambiance of the restored Mansion allowed my husband to leave refreshed and ready to carry on. The spiritual conversations around the table were inspiring and uplifting. We could feel God's presence through visiting with both Vic and Anna. We would definitely like to come back--maybe in the summer time when we can relax on the porch and admire the beautiful gardens. May God bless you as you minister to everyone whom He sends your way!
Where do I begin about our wonderful stay at this B&B? What a fantastic night away. After 1 hour onsite, we knew we'd love to stay a week! From the amazing treats in our room upon arrival (oh my, those caramels!!) to the lovely surprise of evening dessert on our room (delicious cheesecake) to our gorgeous room. We loved it all! Our room - the Baron Suite, was beautifully decorated with every detail covered for a wonderful stay that made us feel pampered and special. It was like escaping to another world. By far the best part was our fantastic host/hostess, Anna and Vic. They made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and attended to every need. We so enjoyed chatting (and laughing!) with them and learning about their development of this B&B, which is truly a labor of love. The fabulous breakfast the next morning made it hard to leave. In fact we ended up staying a little later due to Vic's gracious offer to borrow their bikes and go for a ride around town on the gorgeous sunny day! Their generous hearts were such a blessing to us. We would reccommend this place to everyone and we can't wait to go back!! Sue and Tom
Vic and Anna have probably ruined future trips to any other B&B! This was our first...beautiful setting and rooms, wonderful, sweet, friendly couple, and great breakfast! Very quiet and clean. We will definitely be back.
We stayed for our 20th Anniversary. Ross & Diane are amazing hosts. Breakfast is always amazing. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. We love the Jacuzzi rooms and the fireplace is a great touch. It is such a relaxing place. We have been here 3 times before and will be back year after year! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
Thank you for a wonderful experience. The couples massage on site, the beautiful rooms and the delicious breakfast made it all a top notch experience! Thank you! We will be back to enjoy the place again.
For my husband's surprise 40th birthday weekend, we had an absolutely lovely time once again at Prairieside Suites. The rooms are simply exquisite!! The level of detail that goes into each trip is remarkable and it was just what we needed! Also, breakfasts were super tasty with beautiful representation. We will definitely find our way back here soon!
“Hockey Mama and Papa” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago via mobile My wife and I found this gem of a B&B far enough away from the hockey players to enjoy the sweet smells of Anna's cooking and the comfort of the beautifully decorated and restored home. Anna was there to greet us as we arrived and tucked us into our room making certain that any need was attended to. Anna and Victor had inquired in advance of any special food sensitivities and provided for us wonderfully. Anna tempted us with home made confections and other welcomed snacks and joined us in the mornings with welcomed conversation and brought an equally welcomed spirituality to our presence as we ate our breakfast. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g42838-d4205606-r354779289-Baert_Baron_Mansion-Zeeland_Ottawa_County_Michigan.html#
We stayed in the New York Loft and the room was very cozy and beautiful. I didn't care for the dining room breakfast with the other guests, would be nicer if you could sit separately which would be more romantic. Staff was nice and accommodating. There are plenty of dvd's if you desire to watch a movie and cuddle. The massage lady is great. Traffic outside the room was a bit noisy at times, but we turned on the fan and that drowned it out. All in all we enjoyed ourselves.
My fiancee and I spent a cozy Valentine's at the Mansion and couldn't have been happier with the accomodations. Vic made us feel welcome from the monent we arrived and was great at antcipating our needs. Many B and B's are charming but few have hosts who are as sensitive and welcoming yet noninvasive as the Baert Baron Mansion. Job well done. We wil return for another stay.
This is a amazing getaway for you and your spouse. You will love the food, service, and whatever room you stay in. Cheri and Paul are extremely nice and will make you feel at home. When you venture outside everything you want to do is anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes away. You will love you stay guaranteed.
I can not begin to explain how amazing this place is. I had not one complaint about anything. Everything about the experience was truly amazing! Not to mention the staff was awesome! ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿
We stayed at serendipity for our anniversary. Our hosts were very pleasant and fun to chat with. Everything was clean and comfy. The tvs are small and only have vcrs. They have quite a few vhs tapes to choose from. There is a hot tub and sauna. The rooms are all pretty small but still very nice. The breakfast was delicious! Heart shaped waffles and fresh fruit and a ton of bacon! We would gladly stay here again!
My boyfriend and I have come here the last few years for Valentine's Day. We always feel so welcomed by Marcia. Her and her husband do an absolutely wonderful job at making you feel like you're at home away from home. A+ ! Thank you so much for such great hospitality and I look forward to seeing you next Valentine's Day!
