Short trip

My husband myself and our daughter stayed here two nights . Everything you need is in this darling apartment. All of us were very comfortable. The stairs going up are very steep but we made it. Would definitely recommend Kara's Kottages .


Awesome weekend!

We stayed early July in 2017 we were impressed with the appliances and the overall appeal of the place we stayed in at Redwood. There was a beach nearby it was a quiet area and the food was delicious. The owner was very friendly and helpful


A great weekend in Kalamazoo

We were delighted with the apartment that we had at Kara's Kottages! The space felt very homey and was nice and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked and we appreciated the breakfast food and coffee - all were fresh! I would recommend Kara's Kottages to anyone who wanted to feel at home in Kalamazoo - a much better option than a personality-free hotel!


SO Lovely!!

We stayed in the Redwood and could not have asked for better accommodations. Every detail was so thoughtful, beautiful, and welcoming. Stayed for K College graduation ~ wish we had a reason to return!


Extremely cooperative

We stayed at the birch bark cottage. This is a lovely place to go with family as there is plenty of room to socialize.


Anniversary

4.8 on March 29, 2017

I wanted to surprise my wife for our anniversary and take her to a Bed and Breakfast. Wasn’t certain what I was looking for and happened upon Kara’s Kottages. I reserved the room, made some request like a certain amount of flowers be in the room upon our arrival as well as rose pebbles on our bed. The room was excellent, everything was just as I requested and more. My expectations were exceeded. Kara’s Kottages would be an excellent choice for anyone to stay at but looking for something special this certainly filled the bill.
