Girls Getaway!!

5 on May 23, 2017

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Kingsley B&B. From the moment we walked in, we felt welcomed and comfortable. The rooms are quaint and have a very homey feel, as does the entire Inn. Service was outstanding and our breakfast each morning was scrumptious. I cannot say enough about the owner of this beautiful B&B. He made sure we felt at home, welcomed and the service we received, was always impeccable. I must also add, the message therapist who comes onsite is amazing.

Chuck greeted us and was very helpful to ideas for things to do in the area. Wine tasting was a bonus to sit outside and and sip wine. The porch was a peaceful and lovely gardens. Sally had fresh baked goodies for us and the whole visit was wonderful experience.


Awesome Stay!

My wife, Lynne, and I had a great time at the Kingsley House. Chuck was a wonderful host that made sure everything turned out exactly as I requested. We enjoyed a carriage ride and returned to our room later for wine and chocolates. The stay is very relaxing and accommodating. There is something to snack on in the afternoon, a variety of hot drinks, and even chocolates out for the taking. The breakfast was excellent. We will keep going back to try every room and find our favorite. Steve and Lynne, Northwest Indiana


Much needed 24 hour getaway

4.0 on January 03, 2017

Beautiful Victorian Bed & Breakfast. It was our first visit to a B&B, and it exceeded all of our expectations! Chuck is a wonderful host, and had everything setup for us for all of my requests...including scheduling massages and a carriage ride.


Best stay at a B&B yet!

Chuck went above and beyond my expectations during our stay, meeting our every need, even before we asked! He surely has the gift of hospitality which made our anniversary getaway exactly what the doctor ordered. The rooms and grounds were very Victorian in their styling, and everything we needed was right in Fennville. I had anticipated going to Saugatuck for one of the days, but the beautiful downtown shops and restaurants are a short walk away, and Fenn Valley winery is a beautiful bicycle distance.


Our third time staying at The Kingsley House

4.8 on October 23, 2016

We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at the Kingsley House. This is the third time we have stayed here. Our stay was very comfortable. Chuck is an excellent host and made us wonderful breakfasts. There is a lot to do in Saugatuck, Fennville, and Holland during the day. As always, we will return!


A Wonderful B&B

5 on October 13, 2016

The Kingsley House is a beautiful B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner Chuck could not have been more welcoming and has obvious enthusiasm for the Kingsley House and his guests. The location is a convenient and a short drive to many of the areas top destinations. We will be returning!


Lovely Victorian with Awesome Host!

5 on September 12, 2016

We stayed in the Northern Spy Room, which was wonderfully spacious with lovely quaint details including a small room inside the turret! Chuck was a relatively new owner when we were there, but he is a natural for hosting and customer service. Chuck's wife, Sally, stayed in the background since having broken her arm recently, but Chuck handled everything with agility and gusto! The home was very clean, the breakfast was ample and tasty, and the location is very nicely convenient to several other tourist towns. I especially enjoyed the little details at this B&B; homemade cookies and spiced pretzels for an afternoon snack, bottled water always available, several coffee flavorings to choose from, to-go coffee cups, and a supply closet with myriad items you may have forgotten to bring. This is a top-notch place to lay your head and we recommend them highly.


Comfortable

3.8 on August 27, 2016

This was our first stay at the Kingsley. We enjoyed our stay and the room was clean, the bed comfortable, the breakfasts were tasty. We stayed in the McIntosh which is a small room with small bathroom. The shower was very tight, a large person would not be able to turn around in it. The new owner, Chuck made everyone feel welcome and served breakfast with a smile.We would go back but would choose a bigger room. It was a great location to visit nearby towns, Saugatuck, Douglas, and Holland. Fennville has its own gems close by too. We walked to dinner at Salt of the Earth and it was delicious.


Outstanding B&B
