Everything was absolutely amazing here and I loved every single thing about it from the decor in the rooms to the delicious breakfast in the morning! The only improvement I would suggest is cleaning the bath tub better. There was dirt on the side of the whirl pool tub, but other than that the entire house was cleaned to perfection! Thank you so very much for the amazing experience and we will be coming back very soon!


Valentine's weekend

Every year, on Valentine's weekend, my husband and I go to a bed and breakfast. This is by far the best one we have been to. The facility, atmosphere, food, service and attention to detail was incompatible.

Stayed here with my husband for a weekend getaway. Quiet, friendly, clean, delicious breakfasts, yummy cookies, so many little touches that were really nice. Keurig available to make tea or coffee at your disposal, Roku in rooms, so close to downtown. My husband was pleasantly surprised with our stay. Great place! We would highly recommend this B&B!

We went to Kalamazoo for WMU's homecoming and we were so pleased to be able to stay at The Kalamazoo House. The owners are very organized and accommodating. I knew everything I needed to know before I arrived... very clear instructions on all the details. House is fantastic and rooms have everything you need. We loved it and would definitely go back!


Our new favorite experience!

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the Kalamazoo House B&B from the friendly staff to the fabulous accommodations and the wonderful breakfast. This was my first time at a B&B and I was blown away. I would prefer this experience over a hotel any day.
