A great little place to get away.

We wanted a night away, no entertainment or activity, just a place to get a break from the daily grind. This B & B was perfect. Our room was immaculately clean, quite an accomplishment for historic houses because of the trim and details not found in modern construction. David and June presented a very hospitable experience, with a wonderful breakfast that was high quality in its preparation and presentation. David and June are very welcoming, yet nuanced in their sense for guest's desire to be alone. We had a wonderful time, and will be going back again.

Saugatuck Stay

We stayed in the Library Suite because we wanted privacy. A bit pricey, but absolutely worth it! Roomy, comfortable cottage-type suite. Charming decor and great care taken in providing all the comforts of home. We needed a quiet weekend of rest with a little shopping, good food, talc, etc. Breakfast was tasty, not sumptuous, but very well prepared and delivered in a charming basket placed quietly (and not too early) outside our door. We will definitely stay here again!

Excellent place to stay

My mother, sister, & I stayed at Serendipity for a weekend getaway. We loved the Rose & Iris rooms which were very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was just for our rooms and also very clean and well supplied. Breakfasts were delicious, with fresh fruit, fresh baked goods, and a hearty egg dish each day. The location couldn't be better. We would definitely come back!


Girl's getaway

Everything was great, except there wasn't any coffee in the suite. We had our breakfast delivered, but it would have been nice to have a cup of coffee in the room, before 9:15. Everything else was wonderful!
