Top Notch From Bed to Breakfast!!!

5 on December 07, 2015

My husband and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary the weekend following Thanksgiving by staying at the Chelsea House Victorian Inn and catching a performance at the local Purple RoseTheater. We couldn't have made a better choice. Everything was great - the spacious room (Glazier Suite), comfortable bed, awesome breakfasts, and the above and beyond service provided by the Innkeepers, Kim and Jim Myles. Kim was extremely helpful in making our weekend stay special by assisting us in getting our theater tickets and giving us great dining suggestions in town as well as guiding us to a favorite pub in Ann Arbor to watch the U of M football game. We'll be back!!

A true gem!

My wife and I were up in the area for a dressage show at Waterloo and simply could not have asked for a better place to stay! A lovely house and the owners simply go out of their way to make you feel like family! If you are anywhere near the Chelsea area, do yourself a favor and spend a night (or two or three) here! You will simply love it!!

Innkeepers are exceptional!

Living in Delaware, I phoned the Inn and spoke with the owner and innkeeper, Kim Myles. I wanted to surprise my dad and his guest with a bottle of wine and goodies upon their arrival. Kim went out of her way to create an array of fruit, cheeses, crackers, etc. to go with a very nice bottle of wine that I was able to select. They were thrilled! Thank you, Kim, for going above and beyond!

Wonderful, charming experience

We could not have had a more pleasant stay at this charming, fully restored Victorian inn. The welcoming host, Jim, and his wife, Kim, keep the parlor fires roaring and serve the most delicious breakfasts. We stayed in the Robert Room, a spacious loft suite, that truly felt like a home away from home. We'll certainly be staying here again the next time we're in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your kindness and sharing how much you enjoyed Roberts' Penthouse. There have been 2 significant "Roberts" in our life: Jeff Daniels father who was a huge positive influence on outstanding acheivements in Chelsea, and Kim's father who played a big role in the restoration of Chelsea House. Your feedback is invaluable to other travelers making decisions about great places to stay and to the success of our business. We thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and we are so glad you had a good time here.

- Jim Myles (innkeeper)
