Lori and Mike were very welcoming. We enjoyed staying at the B&B. The Spa treatment was good just too chatty. The town very small not much to do except go to their two favorite restaurants on the same block and a small movie theater.
Thank you for staying with us. I am glad we met your expectations.

When you enter the front door, Lori and Mike greet you as family coming home for a visit. The food is very good and you never leave the table hungry. It is a great place to visit and learn about the history of the house. I recommend that you should visit the Munro House B&B.
Our objective to make you feel at home worked! We are so happy you stayed with us and are glad you enjoyed the stories of this great old house and the people who have lived here. We are also delighted that you did not leave the table hungry. Thank you for staying with us.

What a delightful surprise awaits you when you select The Monroe House ! Rooms are large and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds and linens provide a great night's sleep. Special touches in " Julia 's Room " included a modern bathroom with a heated floor and a fireplace. We also had a private entrance with a small porch if you wanted to sit outdoors on the lawn chairs provided. It was located on the first floor so very convenient for those who choose not to climb stairs. Personalized breakfasts and friendly service. 7 minutes or less from Hillsdale College, so extremely convenient. Owners take real pride in their hospitality and genuinely want your experience to be positive. We would definitely reserve the Monroe House next time we are visiting Hillsdale College.
We are glad that you enjoyed Julia's Room. We recently did a major makeover of this room and added the touches you described. We are glad you noticed and enjoyed them. We are also glad that you found our close proximity to Hillsdale College as a convenience benefit. Thank you for staying with us.

We had a great time at the Munro house - Mike & Lori were great hosts of this historical home. Great area to drive around and shop. Local restaurants were really good too.
Thank you for staying with us. We try to send everybody in the right direction for good food and fun things to do. We are glad you had a good time.

host was stunning and very welcoming we love the stay but unfortunately we did only for one night.
It was our pleasure to host your stay. We know people have limited time off from their busy schedules, so we offer one nighters most of the year. Thank you for choosing us.

This was my first time at a B&B and it was amazing. Everything exceeded my expectations. Mike and Lori were both super nice and welcoming. Mike was a great host with extreme knowledge of the history of the Inn and the surrounding area. The breakfast was yummy and made to order. 24 hour snacks, water and soda were available at no extra cost. WiFi, cable with movie channels a nice added bonus. I can't wait to visit again soon.
Thank you. We want everyone to feel at ease in our house. We try to treat people like family, tell a few stories, serve good food, have the right amenities, and provide ideas for things to do. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
5 on October 11, 2016
Absolutely grand experience. Hospitality and services were next to non. The home itself was stunning and full of history that the innkeepers did a fantastic job of displaying and explaining. Will make a return visit soon again
We try to hit the historical highlights of this great old house during our nickel tour. We have found that it is a good thing to show people where things are and what they have access to. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again soon.

My girlfriend and I had a girls weekend with Homecoming at Hillsdale College and antiquing in Allen. This was a great location to do both. Mike and Lori have a very lovely house and we felt right at home there. Food was delicious, fun stories were told and we definitely will be back.
It was our pleasure to welcome you into our house. We are glad you had a good time. See you next time.

Was a very nice getaway for a night with the wife.
We are one of the B&Bs that allow you to stay for just one night, most of the time. Thank you for choosing the Munro House. It was our pleasure to host you.

Relaxing, peaceful, delicious; three words to describe my visit to the Munro House. The Host and Hostess are very well mannered, warm and welcoming and will give you space if you want, or they'll talk for hours with you if you want. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable. I had also gotten a package that included a massage as well as dinner credit: both restaurants had great service and delicious food. Breakfast at the Munro House was absolutely delicious and I felt very welcomed sitting at the breakfast table in my pjs with everyone. Wonderful experience, I'd look forward to coming again to escapethe everyday hustle, and I strongly recommend this B&B.
Because you found us to be relaxing, peaceful, and delicious, we did our job. We encourage interaction at the breakfast table, and pajama clad guests are welcome. We hope to see you again. Thank you for choosing the Munro House.

The owners, Mike & Lori were very social and we enjoyed our conversations with them. The breakfast was made to order and we enjoyed our dinner at Olvia's which Mike had recommended. The room was quite large and rather quiet.
Thank you. Our house is pretty quiet because of the construction and location of bedrooms. We send everybody to Olivia's because they were recently recognized as one of the best small town restaurants in America. When that reputation is 2 blocks away, it gets highly recommended. We are glad you liked it here.

Great hosts and if you go away hungry it's your own fault because food was plentiful and delicious.
Thanks. We offer 2nds on breakfast. We want everyone to leave the breakfast table full and happy.

We loved the beautiful home, the beautiful rooms, the nice hostesses, and the delicious breakfast! Highly recommended.
Our objective is to make our guests comfortable and feed them well. It sounds like you were more than satisfied. Thank you for staying with us.

We wanted to visit a Bed and Breakfast to celebrate our Anniversary! Munro House had it all: in room jacuzzi, fireplace, comfortable and spacious room. The service was fantastic! Very accommodating, clean and super friendly! Enjoyed lunch at a nearby BBQ spot in town, which was great. Breakfast in the morning was super, plenty to offer and if you leave the table still hungry- it's your own fault! Mike and Lori are terrific hosts and are excellent at making a table full of strangers feel like like friends!
We have great restaurants that are a short walk from our house, and breakfast isn't over until everyone has had enough to eat. Re-orders are welcomed every day. Our big table seats 12 and we encourage everyone to talk to each other. The best part about our B&B is the breakfast, and it has nothing to do with the food. Thank you for staying with us.

My wife and I along with some close friends did the Murder Mystery weekend at the Munro House and let me begin by saying we have been to many places in our 34 years of marriage and this B&B was as good as MANY of the places we have traveled to. Mike and Lori are among the most down to earth comforting people you could meet. There B&B stands and the way they run it is with out a doubt top notch. From start to finish the food,accommodations,and that all around welcome feeling will bring you back. As far as the Murder Mystery itself WELL DONE with lots of laughs trough out. If you are at all looking to book a B&B trust this is the place you will have no regrets,they have everything covered.
Thank you for choosing us. We are glad that you liked Munro House as well as some exotic destinations you have visited. We try very hard to make people feel welcome in our home and our small town. Yeah, the murder mystery dinners are a blast--my wife is an excellent hostess and prepping you for the game is her greatest forte. We judge the success of our parties by the amount of laughter coming out of the dining room. We could tell you all were having a great time.

Mike and Lori were exceptional hosts. Mike greeted us upon arrival, even late in the evening. Breakfasts wonderful and filling. Old house with lots of charm. The only observation I would make is that some softer pillows would be nice. One short block to two restaurants downtown; close to other dining a short-drive in Hillsdale.
Thank you. We think we have a gem of a small town and our house is the jewel. We are working with other proprietors to make people feel welcome in Jonesville, whether they are at our house or at the local businesses. Guests can always ask for a different, or an extra pillow.

Great guests. Every time. Thanks for continuing the tradition.

My wife and I stayed here for our "babymoon", with a second kid on the way we were just looking for a relaxing weekend away. We decided on the Munro house because of the packages they offered and the good reviews. We chose the Winter Getaway package witch included two dinners at local restaurants (both were great), 2 one hour massages and 2 movie tickets. We were very happy with the service and the breakfast both mornings we were there was some of the best I have had.
We have a package for every season and packages for other reasons. It can be difficult to choose where to go for dinner, so we take out all the mystery and send you to our favorite places. We are glad you liked them. We are also glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for doing the research and choosing the Munro House.
5 on February 11, 2016
Mike and Lori were absolutely amazing people, easy to talk to and fun to be around. The house itself was also amazing the amount of history in the building is like spending the night in a treasure chest. We loved everything about it and we will probably take another weekend retreat to the Munro house again before the summer. Thanks, Brian & Rebekah
We are glad you found our treasure chest and enjoyed its bounty! We had as much fun hosting you as you had being here. It was our pleasure. See you soon.

Great hosts. Fabulous food. Cozy rooms. All this in a B & B with a rich history and enthusiastic hosts. The breakfasts are superb and made to order. Each room has its own ambience. Water, coffee, tea and soda are always available along with a good variety of snacks. It was fascinating to learn all the history of the house. Highly recommend Munro House for a relaxing getaway.
Thank you. We love this house, we love telling its history, and we love sharing it with our guests. We offer complimentary coffee, soft drinks, cookies, and snacks all day because we appreciate these amenities when we travel. I have learned to be a short order cook, because we believe that people like choices for breakfast. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.

We traveled to Jonesville to meet our son's fiancé's parentsfor the first time and to spend New Year's holiday with everyone. There are some hotels near by but being B&B enthusiasts I was pleasantly surprised to find Munro House. The property is extremely well maintained and very comfortable. Our hosts the Venutrini's were interesting conversationalists as well as being pretty darn good on keepers! The room, Margaret's Room, was beautifully decorated as were the other rooms we were able to see. The rest of the house couldn't have been more inviting. Although we didn't partake there was a murder mystery night as well as a chef night both of which were well attended. Mike's breakfasts were beyond good and his home made jam as sweet as Tupelo Honey (sorry Van!). We will be coming back and we will be staying at Munro House. If you are planning an antiquing trip to nearby Allan definitely stay with Mike and Lori. Its's worth the trip alone.
Thank you for staying with us. We remember you well and have high ratings of you as a guest. Our long interesting conversations over breakfast and in the parlor were memorable and informative. We really enjoy guests who are able to make themselves at home as well as you did. It was our pleasure to host you.
5 on December 11, 2015
This place was very nice. The staff were friendly and engaged. They know how to really cook. I liked the fact that everyone sits together for breakfast.
The best part about bed and breakfast is the breakfast--and it's got nothing to do with the food. We will feed you until you are full with our secret recipes and American classics. We enjoy bringing people together for a meal and conversation. We have found that almost everybody is a lot more interesting than they think they are. We facilitate meeting new people and encourage their engagement in conversation while we serve the first meal of the day. We also enjoy joining our guests for breakfast after everyone has been served. Thank you for staying with us.

This was mine and my wife's first time at a B&B and it was by far a great experience. The owners were extremely nice and welcoming. Rooms were clean and well kept. Breakfast the following morning was amazing. The French toast was better than expected. Plan to return in the Future.
We love first time B&B guests. We try to set the bar pretty high on the B&B experience at our house. Lori shares her secret recipes with me so I can provide a real treat to our guests. Thank you for trying us first.

Our overnight stay at the Munro House B & B was a great way to break up our 2 days of antique shopping in the antique capital of Michigan. Our hosts Mike and Lori were great hosts. The accommodations and the breakfast were first rate.
Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you liked it here. Allen, the "Antique Capital of Michigan" is a great draw for us, and is just 5 miles away. Many of our guests enjoy spending time in several of their antique malls

Munro House is a historic wonder in the middle of a quaint town full of personality. Nice rooms, very clean, yummy breakfast. Gracious hosts, Mike & Lori, go out of their way to make sure you feel welcome & comfortable. We'll definitely be back! Alan & Karen from Minnesota
Thank you for choosing the Munro House. It is our pleasure to provide great hospitality to our guests.

Very nice and welcoming. Will visit again in the future. Great for business trips or just to get away.
We are glad we exceeded your expectations. It was our pleasure to host you. Thanks for staying with us.

Mike and Lori were fantastic!! We had an agenda prepared with keys times to ensure we maximized our time. The walk through on the history of the home was a nice touch!! Highly recommended!!!
Thank you. We love to tell stories about this great old house. We know that people who work hard do not always want to make a lot of decisions when they finally get away. We have developed packages that provide a great escape with time management in mind. We are glad you were happy with our itinerary.
5 on August 21, 2015
What's not to like about the Munro House? It truly is like staying with friends.
Thanks/ We have friends from across the country and around the world. We try to offer them all excellent hospitality.

My husband & I chose The Munro House for our 23 rd anniversary. Every year we try to pick a new bed & breakfast to stay at. Mike was so welcoming, warm, & personable. We added the foodie retreat package & Olivia's Chop House was awesome, the Udder Side was yummy, Saucy Dog's wasn't our favorite & Johnny T's was good as well. We walked the town of Jonesville & there really wasn't much to see. However, Hillsdale had alot more to offer. The Buffalo Ranch was an adventure as I broke my heel on the zipline (landing) & our horses, Levi & Gader were so sweet. Our wrangler, Kristen & horse Mama were also very sweet. We took in a couple's massage as well. I was disappointed with my masseuse (Sandy) as she was more interested in my many tattoos & a couple of them controversial, instead of focusing on my massage that we paid & tipped pretty well for. She was nice, never rude. Breakfast at the Munro House was filling & we would highly recommend this B&B. Thank you Mike, Lori, Ozzie (dog) for providing a clean, warm, welcoming environment for our stay. Kyle & Lisa, Chesterfield, Mi.
We are glad that you enjoyed our getaway package and our home. We try to provide a quality experience for all of our guests and try to point people in the right direction for fun things to do. It is important to note that the massages were not done at Munro House and were not a part of the package. We do not have a masseuse named Sandy.
5 on June 22, 2015
I've stayed here several times over the years (under three different owners) and have always enjoyed this place. Picturesque town, great accommodations, warm bubbly hosts, excellent breakfast, nice ambience and great WiFi (surprising strong)
We've been here since 1999, so you've been returning to Munro House for a long time. It was our pleasure to continue the history of hospitality you have enjoyed. Good food, conversation, and internet signal are important to us, too. Thank you for returning to Munro House.
5 on June 17, 2015
The room was great and the service was great also. This is an interesting place to stay because of the history of the building. The breakfast were superior than any place we have stayed and the amount of the serving was more than you could eat. The host were great to talk with and the rooms were well taken care of. If we are in the area again we would definitely stay there again.
Our objectives are to make people feel welcome, and to fill them up with our generous breakfast portions. We have the gift of gab and welcome extroverts to join in conversations about the events of the day. Thank you for staying with us.

Awesome place to stay! Owners Lori and Mike make you feel like family. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very filling and tasty. Jonesville is a nice little town and there are some great restaurants within walking distance. I recommend the Munro House B&B and Spa for anyone who needs a clean, friendly, and quiet place to stay!
It was our pleasure to keep you out of the campgrounds that are so prevalent at Michigan International Speedway during the NASCAR races. A half hour is a reasonable drive from the track, and our town welcomes the fans who come for a day or the whole weekend. Thank you for staying with us.
3.8 on June 08, 2015
Was looking for a peaceful quiet time. This was the place. With the nice little town that my wife and I took a long walk. Very relaxing. Mike and Lori were great. The romantic package was done just right. Olivias chop house served great food. Thanks again
We love our small city and encourage our guests to enjoy it, too. Our packages create a nice itinerary so guests can catch many of the highlights and still have time to walk our peaceful neighborhood. Thank you for staying with us.

Had a wonderful time with the B&B combo with the massage / dinner / theater package. We and our friends enjoyed the quaint but beautifully designed/remodeled civil war era home. The hosts were entertaining, the breakfasts delightful. The masseuses were excellent. The dinner restaurants were superb and totally unexpected to be found in the small town. We recommend highly. George c. Rogers
Thank you for selecting the Munro House. We have developed a host of packages that guests seem to like. We have partnered with excellent services that make Jonesville shine. Yeah, Jonesville is a gem in Southern Michigan and we are proud to promote the local jewels. It was our pleasure to make your getaway a good one.

My wife and I bought the two night Jacuzzi room package. All of our meals were included at exceptional local restaurants. The breakfast at the Munro House was incredible. Great food and great conversation. We took in the city shops, nightlife at the "Underground" and went horse back riding at the Buffalo Ranch. The Jacuzzi and fireplace in our room was magical. Mike and Lori are the best hosts. I have never seen my wife smile so much. It was worth every dime. We will be back for the wine tour and the county fair. You gotta get here soon. Karl and Val.
Wow. We set up a package that you obviously enjoyed. We are so happy that you had a good time at some of our favorite places. Thank you for choosing the Munro House.

By far one of the most wonderful, peaceful, places in Michigan. Thanks Mike & Lori for a wonderful weekend, great place great food and amazing people.
We live in a great old house in a great little city, and we love to share it. Thank you for discovering us.
4.6 on April 16, 2015
Mike and Lori are extremely accomodating people. They are kind, compassionate, articulate, eclectic, heartfelt! Their home is beautiful and you can see the passion they have for history their town and the human condition. They are non judgemental,very learned, and help you feel right at home if that is what you are looking for. If you need a retreat, you are not compelled to blend it, I have been coming back over and over because of their kindness. This year I was greeted with my favorite room which now has a heated bathroom floor and all new accoutrements~ The breakfast are delicious and no skimping, eat as much as your like, they encourage conversation in the morning which this time I talked with two couples from Canada. I am a financial advisor and wanted to talk about the Canadian infrastructure especially in regards to energy and the energy grids and one of them one was lineman and lived in Canada, the other one worked in the automotive industry for Chrysler. They were fascinating to talk with and we talked extensively about many subjects, so you can get intellectually energizer with real people from many walks of life! Take the plunge, achieve that peaceful state of mind! You will love it K. Carter Louisville Ky
We appreciate that you feel comfortable in our house and return time after time. Thank you for choosing us again. I always say that the best part about bed and breakfast is the breakfast--and it has nothing to do with the food! I get compliments on my cooking, but we really try to encourage conversation, and that is what is important to what we want to offer as the B&B experience. That is why people are seated together at the plank table and are encouraged to interact. We have found that most everybody is a lot more interesting than they think they are, and we start conversations that could go in any direction, on any tangent. We enjoy talking about life, travel, current events, and everything that comes up from these topics. You never know who you are going to meet at my breakfast table. We have met tens of thousands of interesting and friendly people from all 50 states and 70 foreign countries. We look forward to having breakfast with more outgoing conversationalists, like you.

The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic and cooked to order--they even changed up their menu to accommodate people's requests. The rooms we saw were spacious. I would not recommend staying on the 2nd level though. The owners live above, and we could hear them all throughout the night.
Sometimes people have dietary issues that require a different breakfast selection. We do our best to take care of the request when we know about it ahead of time. We have an alternate plan when we find out at the last minute about food allergies, etc. It is our pleasure to serve food that our guests like, and can eat. There is a staircase over Margaret's bathroom that some people might hear us using late at night or early in the morning. Alyce's Room is the only 2nd floor room that might hear us "throughout the night" because Alyce's room is directly below our bedroom. However, our living quarters on the 3rd floor, is mainly used to sleep, shower, and get dressed. Other than that, we spend almost our entire day 8AM-10PM on the 1st floor. Sorry that the night you stayed with us was noisier than expected.
4.4 on March 29, 2015
The real version of a B&B! You will feel like you are staying in someone's home but with the friendliest and most accommodating innkeepers you could imagine. The breakfast is amazing and the innkeepers are very helpful with giving recommendations and local advise. This inn includes all of the comforts of home including tea, coffee, cookies and snacks available at any time!
We try to set the example of what we think a B&B should be. We really like having people in our house and enjoying our community. Jonesville is a gem in South Central Michigan, and we want Munro House to be the jewel. Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you liked it here.
4.6 on March 26, 2015
We had a great time . Mike Lori and ozzy made us feel welcome in their great home. the stories and food were very good . The spring weekend getaway package was nice. I"m sure we will return.
We have getaway packages appropriate to different times of the year. We are glad you enjoyed your spring getaway package. Thanks for staying with us.

We are glad you felt at home. Thank you for staying with us.

We stayed for two nights at the Munro House B&B. From the moment you walk in you feel relaxed and happy to be there. Mike and Lori are excellent hosts. Rooms are spacious, clean, warm and comfortable. Breakfast is amazing! Listen to Mikes advice on places to eat, he won't steer you wrong. Also indulge in one of the spa packages, it was fantastic... Recommend highly if your looking for a getaway or if your just passing through. We will be back.
We love our great old house and our great small city. Local restaurants have consistent very good food and very good service at very good prices located just a couple blocks away. We also offer manicures, pedicures, facials, massages, body wraps, and waxing in house. We do our best to make folks feel comfortable. Thanks for staying with us. We will be waiting for you to come back.
5 on February 14, 2015
Our stay at the Munro house was wonderful. The hosts were welcoming, knowledgable, and very helpful. The breakfast was FANTASTIC, as were the cookies served later in the day. The rooms are comfy and clean, and the house is steeped in history, which the hosts are eager to share when asked. This was our first stay there, but we'll definitely be going back!
Folks seem to enjoy our traditional American breakfasts. We offer several choices so everyone can get something they like. Waffles or French Toast along with several styles of eggs and oatmeal are daily options, with available personalizations. Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to your return visit.
5 on January 28, 2015
I would recommend this place to everyone! It was such a nice relaxing place to get away to! You truly feel at home. Breakfast was great. Mike always prepared everything perfectly. We will definitely be back. Hopefully during the summer this time. Thanks again for all you did for us to have a nice relaxing weekend. I'd also recommend the massages! Great add on.
We are glad you felt comfortable in our home. We try to give guests an experience they will remember. Thank you for staying with us.

This was my first Bed and Breakfast, and I think it will be a hard one to beat. Our hosts were extremely friendly and personable, and the Munro House really did make me feel like I was at home. The rooms were quite spacious with a cozy feeling to them, and everything was super clean. I will definitely be coming back again!
We try to be the best innkeepers in this great old house. Thanks for appreciating what we do.

Always a pleasure to stay at the Munro House. Owners Mike and Lori make you feel like part of the family. Mike makes the best breakfast around. The rooms are Victorian quaint and every room has a different decor.
Every one of our guests is potentially a repeat guest, so we take care of them as best we can. Thank you for enjoying our hospitality.
5 on August 26, 2014
Owners very knowable of house's history and the history of the town. Owners were inviting and fun to converse with.
We are proud to share the history of this great old house. Thank you for staying with us.
4.6 on August 12, 2014
I've never been to a bed and breakfast before, but would definitely come back to the Munro house again. The stay was comfortable, Mike and Lori were very friendly. They would sit and visit, or leave us be. This place was clean, affordable and extremely accommodating. Definitely a place worth checking out!
We like first time B&B people. We try to set the bar pretty high to compare to future stays. Sometimes, the best part about bed and breakfast is the breakfast--and it has nothing to do with the food. Conversation and interaction with our guests is something that makes our B&B experience special. Thank you for choosing Munro House as your first inn.
5 on August 10, 2014
We were in town to attend a wedding. We were very pleased with our room, the ease of parking, the breakfasts and especially the coffee.
Lori is a big coffee drinker and knows the recipe for the perfect cup. She has trained me to brew a good cup of coffee. Thanks for appreciating our java and our home.
5 on August 07, 2014
This is the 4th or 5th time I have been a guest. Each and every time has been perfect. Big thanks to Mike and Lori .
We will be waiting for your 5th or 6th stay with us! We are glad you feel so comfortable that you continue to return.

Mike and Lori are a couple of perfect hosts in a real historic setting. They are very considerate and pay much attention to let the visitor feel at home. Thanks, to the both of them. Martin
It was our pleasure to share our home with you. Thank you for choosing Munro House.

We loved the house, the breakfast and the great scottish terrier named Ozzie. The innkeepers are very personable and knowledgeable about the area businesses, the history and best restaurants to visit. They took the time to visit with all their guests and made us feel that their "hone" was our home. We would visit again.
Thank you for your kind words. We want everyone to enjoy this great location as much as you did. Jonesville is the jewel of Southern Michigan.
5 on June 16, 2014
Absolutely incredible experience! My husband planned the weekend as a surprise for our 5th anniversary, so I had no idea what I was in for. It was incredible from the moment we arrived. Mike and Lori go way beyond any expectations you could ever have. The room was great, the breakfasts incredible, and Ozzy the dog (and official greeter) was adorable and lovable. The restaurants in town that Mike recommended were fantastic. Make sure you have a massage while you are there, it was incredible! They offer murder mystery, romantic getaway, and chefs night packages, just to name a few. I can honestly say that I have never been more relaxed than I was at The Munro House.
We work very well with local businesses that are included in our packages. Our restaurants are consistently top notch, our masseuses are world class, and we try to treat our guests like family. We are humbled to be called 'incredible'. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.

Mike and Lori were excellent hosts. Friendly, and wanting us to feel comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was awesome. Thanks!

We enjoyed the Munro House---a very well-preserved home with gracious hosts. Lori is a hoot! Our made-to-order breakfast both days was delicious and we enjoyed hearing the history of the house and Jonesville from Mike. Thanks for a great visit.
Most people enjoy the grand tour that includes the history of the house and the local community. Lori has been a hoot for me since 1976--the year we met. It is good to be with the one who makes you happy. She taught me everything I know in the kitchen. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Our stay at Munro house was our very first experience of staying at B&B. Everyone at MH was friendly, rooms were very clean, and Mike even made delicious hot breakfast for us. Overall our stay was very pleasant, I would certainly recommend MH to our friends & family and would love to visit again:)
We try to set the hospitality bar pretty high, and we love first time B&B guests. We were very happy to have exceeded your expectations and hope you visit again. Thank you for choosing Munro House as your first B&B experience.

Hosts Mike and Lori really know how to be innkeepers. You can get quality spa services right in the house. One short weekend felt like a whole week away. Debra
Allowing people the time and place to relax is what we do. We are very happy with our professional spa people and want our masseuses and cosmetologists to offer top quality services. It was our pleasure to help you unwind and feel at home. Thank you for staying with us.

Fully enjoyed my weekend stay at the Munroe house. My wife and I were celebrating our 23rd anniversary and look forward to returning for another weekend soon. The breakfast was wonderful. The room we stayed in George's Room was clean and comfortable. The Jacuzzi tub was so amazing. Mike and Lori were so welcoming and friendly I felt right at home. Almost forgot the homemade cookies ready 24 hours a day.
People love our Jacuzzi tubs built for 2. We enjoy our jobs in hospitality and try to make everyone feel at home. Apparently, we did a very good job for you. Thank you for choosing the Munro House.

My wife and I were looking for a getaway to celebrate our anniversary as well as my birthday. We were looking for something more than a hotel stay with dinner. At Munro House we found it. About two hours from home special packages that included therapeutic massage and fine dinning as well as historical accommodations with a touch of the modern jacuzzi for further relaxation all in a small community in Michigan . We were not disappointed . Our hosts Mike and Lori made us feel at home. Their dinning recommendations were spot on. Olivia's Chop House is a treasure worth the drive alone. Mikes breakfast and fellowship with other guest was real relaxed and delicious. Lori is entertaining and like a family member. We came home relaxed happy and thinking of plans to go back again . If you are stressed and in need of some us time it is the perfect spot.
Thank you for discovering that a real nice getaway does not have to be very far away from home. We are very proud of our great old house, our cooking ability, and the quality of recommendations we offer. We are glad you spent your anniversary with us.

The B&B was quiet, clean and was perfect for a restful weekend. The food was outstanding.
Most of our rooms have no common walls, so it is usually pretty quiet around here. I am a pretty good short order cook and am glad that you enjoyed my creations. Thank you for staying with us.

A wonderful stay at the Munro House. Arrived as strangers and left as friends. Beginning with a fun dinner with a three act Murder Mystery all the details were taken care of and all that was left to do was enjoy. The dinner was scrumptious with a juicy filet mignon as we interacted with the other guests. Ringing in the New Year with a Chef's party was an experience. Preparing different courses and seeing how they all come together was a lesson in timing and enabled trying recipes outside my comfort zone. With a lovely historic home, a welcoming atmosphere, and exceptional food I highly recommend the Munro House for special occasions or a night away from it all.
Thank you for participating in our interactive events. We host about 15 murder mysteries and cooking parties each year. We are very good at organizing and setting up these events. Then, it is up to the guests to have a good time. We are glad you enjoyed our special events and hospitality. We meet the nicest people and are glad you came.

I love all the support they give the veterans and active military and their spouses. we felt so welcomed and like we were part of their family.
We have been giving away our entire house to veterans on the eve of Veterans Day for several years now. We have made it a contest where we release rooms to veterans on an intermittent basis via our facebook page starting in October. Then the first caller gets the room at no charge until we have released all of them. We also offer significant discounts to veterans for Armed Forces Day (5/18), Memorial Day, Flag Day (6/14), and 4th of July. It is our pleasure to serve you for having served us.

We stayed at Munro House as part of their free rooms for veterans.it was our first time at a B and B and it was great! The owners Mike and Laurie were very friendly and very nice! Breakfast was awesome, too! Thanks for the great inn and great experience!

I would definitely go to Munro House again. The hospitality was wonderful and I felt "at home." The Innkeepers were very personable.
When people feel at home, I have done my job. Thank you for the compliments.

We stayed in George's Room. It has a fireplace and hot tub that are very enjoyable. Most of the restaurants are just a block away and are well within walking distance. Everybody was very nice and pleasant to speak with and be around. They encourage you to not stay in your room the whole time and to be comfortable around the whole house. We both got a massage from Julie who is an amazing massage therapist, we both highly recommend adding that to your package. The bed was comfy, the breakfasts were very nice, the town is small but fun, and they treat you like friends. It was a great short vacation getaway.
Thank you for enjoying our small town. Being able to walk to dinner is a nice addition to our location. Encouraging guests to enjoy the house beyond the bedroom is part of our hospitality. We are pleased to have world class massage therapists on call here. It was our pleasure to share our home with you.

Fabulous time. Would definitely go back. Spa services were wonderful, facial and massage exceptional. Love having Mike make and serve us breakfast.
We have sought out and found exceptional people to perform spa services at our house. We trust that they give everyone a high level experience. I love making breakfast. Speed and quality are daily challenges that keep me on top of my breakfast making game. Thank you for staying with us.

Always a pleasure to stay at the Munro House in Jonesville, MI. They provide the best breakfast! The rooms are clean and have a charm of their own since every room has a different theme. Mike and Lori are wonderful hosts. We will continue to stay with them year after year.
Wow. Thank you. We try to make everyone's experience just like yours.

Wonderful, clean, bright, welcoming place to stay in the Jonesville/Hillsdale area. A little pricier. Mike and his wife are warm and friendly hosts; you can tell they love what they do! The history behind the house, and each of the rooms is fascinating and adds depth to the experience of staying at a bed and breakfast. Vanilla waffles are a must-try if offered!
Our job is to make you feel at home. We take it seriously, and are glad you stayed with us.
4.6 on September 09, 2013
My wife and I stayed at Munro House on a previous visit and we were very pleased with our first stay. Mike and Lori are very welcoming to their guests and make you feel as if you have known them for ever. the other guest have been very easy to converse with on both our visits there.the rooms are very well decorated and i would suggest that guest try different rooms on future visits to get a flavor of the time period of this home. breakfast was great and satisfying and cooked to order.
Thank you for coming back to Munro House. Each of our rooms has its own personality and we are glad that you have sampled more than one. We tend to attract a lot of extroverts that enjoy meeting our other guests. It was our pleasure to host your return visit.

We have always stayed at hotels but I came across this B&B while surfing around online. The welcome was great, we were taking care of as if we were family. I loved Mike and Lori and their hospitality was more then I ever expected. I hope we can make Munro B&B a regular place to stay when we plan our vacations every year. absolutely loved it!
We are glad you chose our bed and breakfast over all the other choices for lodging in Southern Michigan. It was our pleasure to treat you to our brand of hospitality. Thank you for staying with us.
4.8 on September 06, 2013
This B&B is in a quiet little town with a lot of pride. The hosts were welcoming, energetic, provided a great tour and a wonderful time at breatkfast, as well as great food! Bed was comfy, had plenty of privacy, and the two-person whirlpool tub was a welcome relaxing way to end a day of travel. Check it ou! It may be off the beaten path, but it has a lot of heart and charm.
Thank you for enjoying Jonesville. We love living here and sharing our house with our guests. Jonesville is quiet, but progressive, with a good infrastructure and 10 choices for restaurants from fast food to fine dining. People like our rooms with whirlpool tubs. George's is our most popular room.

Mike & Lori are fabulous hosts and the charm of the B&B is amazing.
Yes. We have a great old house and we love having interesting people from all over the world stay with us. Thank you for your review.

We found Munro House 4 years ago when our daughter started college at Hillsdale,MI. Mike and Lori Venturini are the best! Very warm hospitality, beautiful surroundings and great breakfast! We stay with them whenever we are here at College Events.
We love Hillsdale College parents. Once you stay with us, you get 'dibs' for that event each year until you release it. That saves parents the hassle of finding a place to stay every year. We are glad that you have become a 'regular'. Thank you for staying with us.
4.4 on August 02, 2013
We stayed a few nights and enjoyed the comfort of this B&B! Great breakfast! Mike and Lori were very welcoming hosts. We would definitely like to return in the near future!

Mike and Lori have a great bed and breakfast. They are very friendly, it's very clean and comfortable and the breakfast is outstanding. Would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast and will come back. The massage was outstanding.
We try to make everyone feel at home in our house. Our masseuses get accolades from first timers and people who get a lot of massages. It was our pleasure to provide you with great service.

I found it to be relaxing, homey, quiet and a very comfortable bed! Loved the breakfast and the conversation! Would definitely recommend and hope to have the chance to return!

We felt at home at the Munro house. We were greeted warmly upon arrival, given at brief tour, and shown to our lovely room. Recommendations for dining were given, and were we encouraged to linger as much or as little as we chose. Breakfast was very enjoyable. We enjoyed the fact that after Mike prepared breakfast for their guests, he made breakfast for himself and Lori, and the joined us. Overall, a very enjoyable stay. Thanks Mike and Lori!!
Thank you for enjoying our hospitality. We believe in promoting this great Village of Jonesville. We have great local restaurants that we highly recommend, and they are just a couple blocks away. One of our main goals is to make people feel at home. A warm welcome, a tour, and interaction with us is part of our standard operating procedure. My favorite part is making my breakfast last, then sitting down to enjoy the company of so many interesting guests.

My wife, myself and three other couples get together at least monthly for dinner, camping, bicycling or whatever. We had heard about the Munro House B&B offering murder mystery dinners. At first I was not excited about the idea, I could not have been more wrong! From the moment we entered we were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Our hosts, Mike and Lori were born to manage a B&B. we were shown to our rooms which were nothing short of fabulous. The home has such character and is rich in history. After relaxing a bit all of the guests gathered to watch the Kentucky Derby where the ladies were provided with lavish headwear and some very excellent Mint Julips were served. Then the murder mystery began with shrimp hors drovers followed by grilled filet mignon dinner with chocolate cake and ice cream for desert. After getting to know new friends and finishing the mystery and some friendly visiting we all retired for a comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast was a whole new story. Eggs to order, bacon, fresh fruit and French toast...it was just a great adventure. We all decided we will certainly return. We heartily recommend!
Thank you for choosing us. We like having groups in our house and enjoyed hosting your party. It was nice that you selected the date for your 4 couples and opened the remaining seats for the Murder Mystery to the general public. They all had a good time, and it was our pleasure.
4.6 on May 06, 2013
The murder mystery package was well worth the price. We had a hilarious time! I hope to return for another crack at finding the murderer. Jan Murphy
We are glad you enjoyed this special event. We have a variety of Murder Mystery games that we play. The criteria for a good game includes: interesting characters, solvable crime, and witty dialogue. The games are as good as the players, and this table was full of characters!

Lori & Mike were amazing hosts and always kept the conversation flowing and funny! Oz the resident Scottie dog was friendly and the perfect Inn pet. Breakfasts were much enjoyed with the other special guests at the Inn. We arrived as strangers but left as friends. We will definitely want to participate in their other venues! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Thanks for the accolades. Ozzie is the kind of house pet everyone should have. He is quiet, knows his boundaries, and is not a pest. The best part about our B&B is the breakfast, and it has little to do with the food. We try to keep the conversation flowing so guests have a 'family' experience. We are glad you enjoyed your experience.

My first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and I was pleasantly surprised at how welcomed I felt. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms were private. I also loved the history of the home. Mike, the inkeeper, had were very interesting stories of the home that put you back in time. I highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast. I hope to return back someday.
Thank you for choosing Munro House as your first B&B experience. We try to set the hospitaity bar pretty high so you will know what to expect at a bed and breakfast. It was our pleasure to share the history of our great old house while making you feel at home.

A last minute google search put me in touch with The Munro House. Within one day notice Mike & Lori had me booked for an amazing room, a facial, a massage and a body wrap! There is nothing like the outstanding service they provide. All rooms are glorious and spacious, the entire atmosphere at the Munro House is amazing. The entry way is lit with crystal chandeliers, old photo's atop the two beautiful mantle's, stunning furnishing that are not only beautiful but also comfortable!! This was a dream of mine, to get away, stay in a beautiful historic mansion and get some well deserved pampering! Mike & Lori made all my dreams come true. The spa service's were as outstanding as the location. Can you say most delicious breakfast ever?? Well I can because Mike's (Lori's secret recipe) waffles are second to none! I can not wait to return to Munro House for more pampering, relaxation and most important..........the company! Mike & Lori are the best!! Thanks for everything!! Natalie
Natalie, we remember you fondly. We are glad we were able to provide the spa services you wanted on such short notice. We have secured a great staff that provides a high end service in this great little town. We try to keep our home comfortable, historic, and modern--all at the same time. Thank you for staying with us.

This was our first trip to a Bed and Breakfast and it was a great first time that makes me want to go back. Mike and Lori are great people and make you feel right at home. They engage in friendly conversation and Mike makes one heck of a breakfast.
Thank you for letting us be your first B&B experience. We try to set the hospitality bar pretty high, and are glad you enjoyed your stay. Lori taught me everything I know about making breakfast. :)

Proprietors were friendly and willing to address any requests. Despite windy, icy 19 degree weather, the house was warm and comfortable. Good breakfast with eggs, bacon, waffles, french toast choices along w fruit, toast and homemade preserves. , Lots of snacks and beverages available at all times. Shower only in my room - no bathtub. Shower and toilet in separate small room and sink in bedroom. Good mattress on the bed. No closet but multiple hanging hooks on the doors. Will be cozy but manageable quarters for two people. The other guests were all multiple time visitors.
We like to keep our house comfortable, usually around 72 degrees. Indoor sweaters are not required. Our guests like our traditional breakfast options and the fresh fruit bowl. We are glad you enjoyed your time at Munro House. Thank you for staying with us.

Mike and his dog Ozzy are excellent hosts! A long story short, my husband and I had reservations to stay, but arrived in town a day early. We called, and Mike stayed up until we drove in after midnight. May I add, he cooks a good breakfast. His wife has an amazing quilting machine; however, we did not get a chance to meet her as she was out of town. It was a perfects situation, we were in town for a wedding and was able to come and go with out feeling like we were annoying or not enjoying the house more. It is comfortable, cozy, and charming. It is a wonderful stay.
We like to make people feel at home and obviously did a good job with you. It was our pleasure to greet you in the wee hours, to fix you a good meal, and to take care of you during your time here. thank you for staying with us.

I had a massage as well and Julie is awesome. Breakfast was fabulous. Great food and company. This place with Mike and Lori and te atmosphere is well worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would stay there again when in the area.
Wow! We always try to please our guests, and must have done everything right for you. Thank you for appreciating what we do.

My husband and I came to the Munro House for a one night stay. We loved Georges Room. It was our first experience at a B & B. It was great! We were very pleased with everything. The history of the house was wonderful to hear about. Mike and Lori are very entertaining and delightful inn keepers.
We are so glad you chose Munro House as your 1st B&B. We hope to set the standard on comfort and hospitality for your future stays. One nighters are welcome at our house on most dates. Thank you for staying with us.

Things that were lacking at the Munro House: Down Pillows Down Duvet High Thread Count Bed Linens Comfortable Mattress
It is mid-October with daytime temperatures still in the 70's. We are within days of changing over from our 350 thread count linens to our warmer bedding, blankets, and comforters. Goose feather down is one of those luxurious items to which many people have an illergic reaction. That is a consideration when we furnish our rooms. Serta matresses come in different thickness and firmness. One variety does not fit all. We try to choose the products that would please the greatest number of people. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations on these items. We appreciate your comments.

I surprised my wife with a one night stay at The Munro House, which was her 1st time at a B&B. The B&B had great historical value regarding the Civil War and the original owner of the house. The owners were very pleasant, funny, informative and breath of fresh air. The rooms were larger and very decorative with keeping with the theme of the room.
Many of our guests enjoy the historic significance of this great old house, and we enjoy telling the stories. We want our house to be more than just a place to stay and try to make our guests feel at home. We hope this was the first of many visits. Thank you for staying with us.

I came to the Munro House B&B to "escape" my husband and kids for a ME weekend. And, a ME weekend I had! 2 hour massage that went by too quickly, delish omelettes, interesting conversations, and just a nice, homey and relaxing time. I'll be going back!
Thank you for choosing us. We try to make all of our guests' time with us as comfortable as possible. We obviously were just what you needed. We hope that this was your first time of many times.

We had a great time and the food was good and homey. I also like the history behind the house.

Inn was nice and the service was above and beyond our expectations. The breakfast was very, very tasty. The only drawback is the town is very small. You need to drive to another town for entertainment; however, the restaurant (Saucy Dogs) in Jonesville is very good. We would stay at this inn again.
Thank you for making Jonesville your getaway location. 2,400 people in town makes us small in population but big on quiet and peacefulness. With a dozen restaurants from fine dining to fast food, eating choices are plentiful. Our spa is top-notch. The neighboring communites have additional entertainment venues that are within 10 minutes of our house. Yes, you might leave town to find additional things to do, but a 10 minute drive from our house is better than being in the big city.
5 on June 17, 2012
We only were in town one night. Two at least will give you ample time to sample the perfect blend of early Americana yet modern wit and freindly sophistication Mike and Lori bring to the Munro House. Food (breakfast) is fabulous, the room spacious clean and perfect for a good night/s sleep. The prodigious history of the place comes at you in large or small doses, however you want it, from Mike. Unexpected pleasure.
Most reservations at our house require only a one night minimum stay. We are glad that we exceeded your expectations.

Mike and Lori were very accommodating and friendly. The facility and breakfast were great. We stayed in 5 B&B's during our stay in southern lower Michigan. They were the best.

We had occasion to stay at the Munro House this past week. Mike and Lori are special people who are friendly, caring and welcoming. Mike shared some interesting history of the Munro House, and is clearly proud to be living there;) ! Lori is equally enthusiastic and sweet! The accommodations were lovely and homey and clean, and the breakfast was lovingly prepared and served while we enjoyed conversation with Mike. Thanks, Mike and Lori for sharing your home with us! We thoroughly enjoyed each moment.
It was our pleasure to have you stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

We stayed at the Munro House in March of 2012 for their Murder Mystery Weekend. We had a fantastic time! Lori and Mike are great and Lori has the best stories. We stayed in Clara's room with the Jacuzzi and the bubbles were a nice touch. We had dinner at one of the local restaurants the first night as part of our package and the food was very good. Breakfast both days was amazing, I have to say they were the best waffles we have ever had. I did have some spa services while I was there (massage, mani & pedi), and they were very good. I liked that they had people come right in and you didn't need to leave, it was very relaxing. The murder mystery was a blast, I would definitely recommend it.
We are glad you had a good time. Lori has been hostess for hundreds of murder mysteries at our house, and is excellent at setting the mood and making it a fun evening. We try to be very good at making every getaway a special treat--from the food to the recommendations to the spa services. Thank you for staying with us.

We stayed at the Munro House in March of 2012 for their Murder mystery weekend. It was fantastic!! We stayed in Clara's Room which is one of the jacuzzi rooms, it also has a fireplace. The first night we had dinner at a local restaurant as part of our package, the food was very good. The second night was the murder mystery dinner which was done right in the B&B. There were 4 couples including us that participated. It was a lot of fun and I would definitely come back and do a different mystery again. I also had some spa services while I was there. That was good because they had people come in and they did everything on-site so you could relax and didn't need to worry about anything. The breakfasts were amazing!! I'm not joking either, the best waffles I have ever tasted. The next day we had french toast and that was amazing too. It was nice because they made everything to order. The owners themselves were great. Lori is one of the best storytellers, I could listen to her for hours. All in all, as you can tell we had a fantastic time and highly recommend staying here.

We stayed at the Munro House B & B for one of their murder/mystery dinner nights and had a very good time. Food was great, Lori and Mike Venturini were wonder hosts. The room and setting was very nice too. Next time I go back I will for sure take advantage of some of their spa services!
We host Murder Mystery Dinners on a regular basis and were glad that you enjoyed this special event. You must have talked to the people who did have spa services on this weekend and got some positive feedback. We try to offer quality events and services at reasonable prices and are glad you had a very good time. We look forward to seeing you again.

I took my wife on a surprise trip to our first bed and breakfast for her birthday. I could not have chosen a better place to go. Mike and Lori invite you into their historical home, which they are so proud of and should be it’s an elegant home. They make you feel right at home from the start and don’t stop. You can tell they defiantly love what they do now… It’s a must to experience and enjoy.

We had a great stay at the Munro House and the fireplace in the General's Room was a cozy and historical place to relax. The waffles were perfect along with the fresh baked cookies and pleasant company. We slipped down to the Toasted Mug and painted a piece of ceramic and will have the final product shipped to our home in a few weeks. The antique shops nearby were enjoyable and the dinner at Olivia's Chop House was excellent. The house salad was a real treat.
We try to take care of guests like they were part of our family. We talk to them, feed them good, keep their room comfortable, and recommend things to do in the area. We are glad you had a good time with us.

This was a complete surprise from my husband for our 10th anniversary this past weekend, I didn't know where we were going until we pulled into the Munro House. We were a little nervous at first since we had never stayed in a Bed & Breakfast before, but might I say we were pleasantly surprised! Mike and Lori make everyone feel right at home and our room, which was George's Room, was wonderful. It was clean and we especially loved the jacuzzi tub and romantic fireplace. Plus breakfast both days was awesome! My husband got us the package that included the massages and dinner to both restaurants. Our massages were the best we had ever had and Olivia's Chop House was great. This is a place we would definitely recommend to anyone.
We enjoy first time B&B people. Hospitality is a top priority which leads guests to feel comfortable in our house. We choose our package partners to be a good fit for consistancy, quality, and value. We get great reviews of our restaurants and our masseuses. When our partners look good, we look good. We are glad you enjoyed your getaway.

This was our first visit to the Munro House, but will not be our last. We spent a relaxing weekend that included massages for each of us. The hospitality of the hosts, including great conversation, wonderful suggestions for activities and dining, and a great breakfast every morning was more then we could have imagined. We also enjoyed the history of the house and our individual room. I would highly recommend this B and B for a great getaway! Steve and Christy Jacob
Thank you for the accolades. We try to treat everyone this way.

We have stayed here several times and every time we feel like we are with friends. The food is great, hospitality bar none, and the inn is beautiful. Thank you!!

My husband and I went to Munro House for our 16th anniversary. We stayed in Clara's room. We had an amazing time. We took advantage of the winter getaway package that includes 2 meals, a movie, and massage. We went home well fed, and relaxed. Highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. Mike and Lori were great hosts!
People like our getaway packages. We have partnered with excellent restaurants that are an easy walk from our house. Our masseuses are world class--and they live in Jonesville! It was our pleasure to organize a memorable anniversary getaway for you. Congratulations on 16 years!

This was my 3rd visit to the Munro House. And as the other visits, it was amazing! Mike and Lori do a wonderful job making you feel at home away from home. Their massage theropist are amazing, something I recomend to anyone who stays.
When people come back for the third time, it is affirmation that we are doing a good job as iunnkeepers. Thank you for enjoying our hospitality.

My newlywed wife and I wanted somewhere close to our wedding to stay the night. The Munro House was a great place to be after a long wedding day. I would recommend it to those looking for a cozy, home-style bed and breakfast. Mike and Lori are great hostesses.
We like newlyweds. We would like to inspire them to enjoy each other's company even after they've been together for 34 years--like us! You got married for a reason--never lose sight of that reason, give each other space, and aspire to common goals.
4.6 on November 22, 2011
Our stay at the Munro house was just what we needed. Our room was beautiful and the breakfast was fabulous. Mike and Lori were great hosts and it was a pleasure to hear their stories and the history of their beautiful home. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone and can't wait to go back.
Thank you for enjoying our hospitality and the stories we shared with you. We try to make everyone feel at home in our great old house. I agree that our breakfast is very good despite not being gourmet. The best part about B&Bs is the breakfast--and it's not always about the food!
4.2 on November 21, 2011
I had a wonderful expeirence at this Bed and Breakfast. The house is full of history and many interesting stories. The neighborhood it sits in is quaint and makes for a wonderful walk. I had a most relaxing time and would recommend to anyone that would like to get away and relax.
Because you were able to relax, we must have done a good job connecting with you. We like to talk about this great old house and the people who have lived here. Our neighborhood is wonderful from the people who live in it to the restaurants and shops that are a short walk away. Our little joke is that the 70's, 80's, and 90's haven't happened here yet. This is a great small town, very much like what I remember in my hometown as a kid growing up in the 60's.

This was our second stay at the Munro House,it was as great or greater than the first. The host are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The breakfest was delightful and the best waffles I ever had. The other guest were friendly and everybody felt like family. Would recommend highly. Leonard and Pam
We are glad that you appreciate what we do. Thank you for staying with us.

The entire weekend was fabulous, from our hosts to our food as well as the other guests. We had the best time and look forward to coming back again. Cheryl Maguire
Part of our responsibility as innkeepers is to bring people together. It was our pleasure to show everyone a good time and give them a memorable experience.

Mike and Lori and their furry co-host Ozzy were excellent hosts! Very informative about the history of the home. The tour by Mike and the stories he told about the namesake were very entertaining and exciting. These two are fun, warm and very welcoming. Like they were welcoming in long time friends or family! We were there for the B & B for Veterans and were graciously treated to a one nights stay and breakfast in the morning. We received a lovely furnished room with jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace. The room was very clean and spacious. We were in Clara's room which was secluded and very quiet. The veterans gathered together in a meet and greet and we met very nice people that had served our great country. The men chatted about their time in the military and we heard great stories! The following morning we were given a lavish breakfast of wonderfully fluffy and tender home made waffles, fresh fruit, coffee, orange juice, toast, eggs, home made jam, and bacon. We ordered what we wanted and if we were hungry after (which we were NOT!) we could order more. We listened to more stories and the comradery continued. We later walked to a local park for a Veteran's Day observance and once again gathered together to honor our past and present veterans. It was a wonderful stay! We were so honored to be able to participate in this wonderful event and the Munro House was a great place to be able to do so.
It was our pleasure to compliment veterans through our participation in the B&Bs for Vets program. We try to show all of our gueats a good time with a nice room, big breakfast, and conversation. Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your service.

We were one of the lucky ones who got to stay at the Munro House (in Julia’s room) when Mike opened his home to Veterans this year. Neither one of us had ever stayed in a B & B before so we didn't really know what to expect. However, as soon as we walked in, Mike came to greet us and we knew when he said “ Welcome to me Home” that he truly meant it. After a tour with history of the house and he took us to our room. The room was nice size, very clean, and the bed was comfortable. A gas fire was in the fireplace which really gave the room a homey feel to it. TV, cable, WiFi are some of the amenities. Mike and Lori proved to be excellent hosts. They made us feel fully welcome in the house, provided good recommendations to eat that night, cooked us excellent breakfast (made to order), and seemed genuinely interested in us. In sum, we were very impressed by the Munro House, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. PS We loved Ozzie their Scottie dog...!!!
We participate in the annual 'B&Bs for Vets' program that is a 'thank you' to veterans for their military service. Everyone who steps into our house is a guest and we try to treat them that way. Thank you for your service!

We celebrated our 27th Wedding Anniversary and my husbands 55th Birthday. Enjoyed our room with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. We got the package which included the massage and dinner. It was my husbands first massage and definately will not be his last. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
Folks like our packages that include spa services and dinners. We set up an itinerary and they follow the schedule. We have partnered with excellent spa professionals and local restaurants to provide a consistantly good package. We are happy to serve you.

Enjoyed our second visit very much! Beautiful room and outstanding breakfast. Thank you!
Our rooms are comfortable and our breakfast isn't over until our guests tell us they are finished. Thank you for liking us enough to come back. We hope to see you for a 3rd visit.

My husband and I needed a getaway weekend and Munroe House turned out to be an excellent choice. The hospitality was wonderful and the food was delicious. We enjoyed staying in the General's room which was very comfortable and cozy with its own fireplace. We definitely plan on going back sometime. It was very relaxing.
When people tell me they were able to relax at my house, I know I have done my job. Thank you for staying with us.
5 on October 26, 2011
What a fantastic home with such great history and charm! I really appreciated the hospitality! I was on a business trip, but felt like I was able to have a mini vacation! I stayed in the General's room and it felt cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable. I had a wonderful night's sleep and felt very rested and relaxed the next day. I was able to schedule a massage the evening I arrived and this too was simply amazing! We were greeted by the owner's friends who were watching over the inn while they were out of town and while I did not meet the owner's I can only imagine how lovely they must be to have such wonderful and hilarious friends! I would recommend this B&B to anyone stopping through Jonesville on a work trip or for vacation! I hope my travels bring me through the area again!
Our innsitters are people persons that we feel comfortable entusting our guests with while we get away. They take their role seriously and make sure that our business does not miss a beat when we take vacation time. We hope your travels bring you back to Jonesville.

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Munro House. The host & hostess were awsume! The house was so warm & comfortable & relaxing. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary & I don't think we could have picked a better place. Thank you.
Thank you for choosing the Munro House. We try very hard to make our place comfortable.
3.6 on October 16, 2011
The Inn is very nice and has a lot of history. The keepers are great and the food was fantastic. I would recommend this B&B.
I give a very good tour on arrival that includes the history of the house, the original owners, and their significance in Southern Michigan. To folks that are interested, a 30 minute is given. Other folks get the "nickle tour" and are informed of the highlights in just a few minutes. We are glad you enjoyed the tour and our big breakfast. Thank you for staying with us.
4.2 on September 27, 2011
Absolutely enjoyed our stay! We stayed for three nights and enjoyed the FANTASTIC spa services! Will definitely will stay there again and would recommend it.
Thank you. We have found spa professionals who not only provide a very good service but are also very nice people who take pride in their work.

Loved Mike & Lori! Loved the house! Loved the ceremony, with all of its personal touches! WILL RETURN!!

Jonesville is a cute little town with great restaurants. We have stayed several times at Munro. Beautiful well kept house, clean rooms. Excellent breakfast! Get the french toast. Jacuzzi tub in George room was nice. Mike and Lori are very entertaining and friendly.
Small towns don't get much better than Jonesville. Few tourists, but great restaurant. A great old house with modern amenities. It is our pleasure to serve you. Thanks for being a loyal guest.
4.2 on August 04, 2011
The Munro house is loaded with history. Make sure Mike and Lori share it with you. Mike can cook a great custom breakfast and fill you in with the local happenings for the day. We were back for a 40th reunion, and spent 4 nights in the house. The parlor is loaded with antiques and is a great place to congregate in the afternoon and take a break.
We enjoy giving tours of our house and sharing its history. We try to serve as concierge to point people in the right direction for interesting things to do. We have an abundance of common area that we invite our guests to mingle with other folks in the comfort of this great old house.
5 on July 18, 2011
My husband & I enjoyed our quick time away from home. Mike & Lori were gracious hosts. We are already planning a return trip.
We enjoy hosting quick getaways. Whether it's one night, or more, we like having people enjoy our house. We try to make everyone feel welcome.
4.2 on May 23, 2011
Fantastic place to stay. Mike and Lori are very welcoming and make you feel comfortable from the start. Their spa services were exceptional! Already trying to plan our next stay there.
Thank you for enjoying our package. We are very proud of our personable trained professional spa team.

Cordial innkeepers, comfy beds, delicious food..... We had a fine time in spite of the weather. Thoroughly enjoyed the livable living rooms. Thanks to Lori and Mike.
It was our pleasure to have you stay with us. We hope aal of our guests are comfortable in this great old house. We encourage them to use our common space for their comfort and relaxation.

My husband and I decided to have a nice weekend away..... the Munro house was a great choice! The Room we had was so beautiful and the house had so much history. Not to mention the wonderful breakfast that was made for us in the morning. We had a great experience and can't wait to go back.
We enjoy sharing our home and its history with our guests. It is our pleasure to host people on their weekend getaway and make sure they are comfortable. Thank you for staying with us.
5 on April 04, 2011
This weekend was full of "firsts" for my boyfriend and I... first trip away from our blended family of 5 kids, first trip to a B & B, and our first professional massage. To say the very least it was absolutely amazing! Mike & Lori were such warm & welcoming hosts, but they don't treat you like customers, they treat you like family. The history of the house and the stories they can tell you about the town and the house itself are very interesting. Being single parents, it's tough to make the time (and be able to afford) a break away from reality.. this weekend at Munro House was both!! I can't say enough good things about it!
Thank you for enjoying our hospitality. We hope all of our guests enjoy their getaway with us. When we get stellar reviews, we are amazed, too.
5 on March 24, 2011
Thank you so much Mike, Lori, Gilbert and Ozzie! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay during Valentine's day. The room was gorgeous and warm with the fireplace, and we had massages as part of the Spa treament. The best massages ever! The breakfast was divine and the hosts were spectacular. We will definitely be coming back for more relaxing weekends.
I never get tired of hearing "the best massages ever!"--and we hear that a lot. Thank you for choosing us and enjoying the Munro House.
4.2 on March 24, 2011
Wonderful host - great history - and just a great feeling in the house. We will be back again!!
I love this old house, and people like you do, too. Thank you for staying with us.
4.8 on March 23, 2011
It was our first time at a B&B...After how Mike treated us (Lori was out of town) we will be back. Mike was so nice, so sweet, had everything ready to go for our relaxing weekend. We went on the off season and Mike still gave us things to do if we were interested, He was there if you wanted to talk, and stayed away if you wanted your privacy. The massages we go were great! I just can't say enough. Thanks Mike and we are planning to see you again!
Your comments are reasons why we are promoting our industry as a "better way to stay". We enjoy giving first time B&B guests (and repeat guests) a very good experience in our small town. Thank you for enjoying our hospitality.

I stayed at the House during a visit to Hillsdale College and found the accommodations fantastic and the hosts extremely friendly. My wife and I will definitely be back. Beware though- Mike is a ruthless on-line Scrabble player!
We enjoy spending time with visitors to Hillsdale College and can provide unbiased input on what the college is all about. We are a great alternative to the traditional small hotels in Hillsdale County that people appreciate. Yes, I love word games. I have dozens going online at any given time.

We definitely enjoyed our stay. The Munro House was elegant, quaint, and romantic. It was a nice get away.
I am glad we were able to meet or exceed your expectations in all categories.

Unique romantic getaway with a warm friendly, cozy feeling with a little historical flare. A place you would want to return to again. Mike and Lori add just the right touch of fun to make your getaway extra special.
We get to live in this great old house and we like to take the time to share it with people from all over with interesting stories about its history and some of our most unforgetable characters. We engage our guests so that the Munro House is more than just a place where you "sleep over". If you felt at home, then we did our job.
4.2 on February 09, 2011
My husband and I were one of five couples who stayed at the Munro House for their Murder Mystery Dinner in Feb. of 2011. The B&B is lovely full of history, clean & inviting. Lori & Mike simply love what they do and treat you like family. We look forward to returning. Highly recommend this B&B especially for a group adventure.
We remember your group fondly and are glad you enjoyed the event we hosted just for you. Thank you for choosing the Munro House.

We loved the atmosphere at Munro House. It was quaint, and decorated for Christmas very tastefully. We felt welcome. The bed was comfortable and the food very delicious. The fruit salad was as if the fruit was freshly picked! The waffles were heavenly. It was nice to meet new friends. I would like to return to this B and B again someday. Thank you for the hospitality! The warm cookies were a wonderful surprise :)
I am very picky about our fruit bowl and spend a lot of time finding the good stuff. Thank you for enjoying our hospitality.

We had a wonderful stay with Mike and Lori. The food was excellent and the hospitality amazing. Now planning our wedding at the Munro House ... Jan and Jim

Only overnight stay. Christmas decorations beautiful.
We are one of few Michigan Inns that allows a 1 night stay on most nights throughout the year. We were happy to have you.

We rented the facility for a wedding reception and could not have been more pleased with the warmth and attention to detail that Mike & Lori provided. We look forward to doing business again with the Munro House!
Our house is a great place to hold a party and we hope to be great hosts. We are glad everything met or exceeded your expectations.

Had a wonderful time. Mike & Lori were awesome hosts. Food was very good.
Thank you for appreciating what we do.
5 on November 20, 2010
My wife and I try to visit a new B&B every anniversary. Sadly, every other venue fails in comparison to the Monro House. Rooms are generally the same, but what sets the Monro House apart are the owners. They absolutely love people and you truly feel like family while there. Whatever you want, just ask (especially if you want more awesome cookies). We are now sending my parents there as they also need a nice, relaxing break. Just trust me when I say, "This is the best bed and breakfast in Michigan by far!"
We enjoy interacting with our guests and always seem to find time to make more cookies. Thank you for staying with us and for referring your parents.
5 on November 17, 2010
The Munro house was simply the best B&B we've been to. Both of commented that it was as if we were the only people there that evening. I would highly recommend the Munro house!
Our house has a unique floorplan that has very few common walls between the bedrooms. Many guests agree that it is quiet in their room, even when we are at full occupancy. We are glad that you noticed the peacefulness and that you like us enough to recommend us to others.
5 on November 13, 2010
We had the opportunity to stay with Mike and Lori on Weds, Nov 10, 2010. The customer service was over the top!! They are very welcoming and have a way of making everyone feel very "at home"! I would absolutely recommend them to all. I am happy to now be part of the "Munro House Bed and Breakfast Club"! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!
It was our pleasure to take care of past and current military personnel on the day preceding Veterans Day. It was truly an honor to host so many vets and have them in town with time to take part in the morning program at our local Freedom Memorial.
4.6 on November 12, 2010
We had the chance to stay free of charge and meet other Veterans. We had a EXCELLENT breakfast and had Super Host.
We participated in a National B&B program titled B&Bs for Vets. The project offered free rooms on the day before Veterans day to current and former militay personnel. It was our pleasure to give thanks to those who have served our country.
3.2 on November 10, 2010
WE liked having the fire place in our room. It was good eating and talking with the other guests. The only thing was there isn't enough to do in that area. I would go in the spring or summer so we could go to the parks.
Our fireplace rooms are very popular as the weather gets cooler. One of our goals is to bring folks together to enjoy each other's company over a big breakfast. We have a new printing of things to do in the area that includes restaurants, antiques, shopping, horseback riding, parks, and hiking/biking paths all within minutes of our house.
5 on October 30, 2010
My husband and I were looking to get away for a short honeymoon and decided on The Munro House. The experience was wonderful. Everything was so comfortable and relaxing and the food was very delicious. We had a great time talking with Mike and Lori, and just enjoying the house and the town. We have told all our friends and family about how much we enjoyed our stay, and I am already planning another stay.
Word of mouth is the most flattering form of advertising. Thank you for telling everyone that you felt comfortable at our house and in our town. That is always our goal.
4.6 on October 26, 2010
Mike and Lori were great. We really enjoyed our time. They were so accommodating. I was very appreciative of them allowing my 10 year old daughter to stay there (some B&B's won't allow children).
Thank you for commenting. We like children and do not discriminate on their age. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.
5 on October 25, 2010
Awesome place to stay. The breakfast is fantastic. Really nice people!
We have a comfortable house, we like to cook, and we like people. That made us a good fit for you. Thanks for staying with us.
5 on October 25, 2010
Truly an Inn, with spacious living room complete with comfy chairs, piano, guitars, even a ukelele, a side parlor and very comfortable bedrooms. Mike is very generous with his knowledge of the area and his breakfasts; Lori is enthusiastically voluble about her horsepower, both four-footed and four-wheeled. Cable TV in the room allowed us to stay up to date with the news and our favorite shows. A good Mexican restaurant with bar just down the street. All in all, a wonderful few days of small town life.
Thank you for enjoying our hospitality. We try to provide the means for our guests to relax. Some are musical, some like TV, some like to talk, some like their space, and all like to eat. Apparently, we did all the right things for you. We are happy that you enjoyed staying with us.

Chose location because close to home (one hour away). Convenient - good to get away. Accommodations were good, breakfast very good. Might come again.
Thank you for choosing us. We enjoy having people enjoy another part of Michigan besides the Lake and the Bridge. We are within 90 minutes of Detroit Metro Airport, Lansing, and Kalamazoo so getaways can be had without driving too far.
5 on October 12, 2010
The Munro House is so beautiful and steeped in history. Our stay was wonderful. Mike and Lori went over and above making sure that our stay was enjoyable. Thank you so much for all you did for us.
We take great pride in telling the stories that give our house such rich history. Our goal is to make everyone's stay with us a very enjoyable one. We are happy we were able to give you the getaway you expected.
5 on September 27, 2010
Stayed for one night. Friendly, outgoing Innkeepers. Great conversation, great food, great room with very comfortable bed. We will definitely keep them at the top of our list when we are in the area again and will recommend them to our friends.
Thank you for staying with us. We try to give all of our guests a positive experience--even the ones who just stay one night. We hope to see you again.

I was impressed with the history of the house, the rooms were nicely decorated and the jucuzzi was fantastic !!! Mike the breakfast was slamming.
Thank you for enjoying our home. I think I give a colorful tour that includes snipits of its history that I have found our guests find interesting. We try to keep our house on the comfortable side--not the fancy side--so folks will feel at home with us. Yes, a lot of people like our breakfast. Because it's fresh fast and hot, I can always make more until even the most famished guest is satisfied.

We had a wonderful stay in Jonesville. Mike makes some mean waffles!
I am glad you ejoyed your stay. Yes, I make waffles that people enjoy, however, Lori shared the secret recipe with me and I get all the credit.

Great staff and friendly enviroment. Made us feel welcome and gave us just the right amount of attention. Rooms were great!

I stayed for business and had a wonderful stay.
Thanks. We try to provide a homelike experience for our business travelers. I have said many times that "if I had found a place like this to stay at when I was traveling for a living, I'd still be traveling for a living."

So glad we found the Munro House in Jonesville Michigan on the Internet. I was looking for someplace where I could treat my mother and two sisters for a spa day, without having to leave the facility. There are so many "day" spas, but surprisingly, not a lot where you can stay put, relax and enjoy. This is exactly what we found in the Munro House. It is charming, relaxing and friendly. The house has a lot of character, and so do the Innkeepers Mike and Lori (!). We opted for a Friday/Saturday stay, with the spa "works." Everything was wonderful. We felt so special and pampered . . . and at ease. (You can't beat sipping chocolate martinis while your feet are soaking softly in a parafin wax.) Jonesville is a small and lovely Michigan town, just a few minutes from Hillsdale (Hillsdale College) and a short 90 minutes from Metro Detroit, with some serious antique and folk art shopping, and enough good restaurants to keep it interesting. The historic Munro House was a way station for the Underground Railroad and you can view the secret hideaway room. Each guest room is unique (and all include their own bathrooms). We hope to make our "girl spa weekend getaway" an annual event. My mother plans to take her husband there soon, and I have recommended the Munro House to all of my friends. It's a special place and a great find. You don't have to do the spa treatments in order to relax and enjoy it. Apparently, the Munro House gets a fair share of business travelers and Hillsdale College visitors too.
Wow! Thank you so much for the A+ review. We try to take excellent care all of our guests, and these ladies really appreciated our efforts. Our onsite spa services are very well-received and we always hope that our staff provides a top-notch service. I like telling the stories about our house that these ladies were impressed enough to retell.
4.4 on May 29, 2010
My mom, sister,sister-in-law, and I had the most wonderful spa weekend at our stay at Munro House! Mike and Lori are so warm and welcoming that you feel like you're visiting family! On Saturday we spent the day getting "the works" (massages, manicures, pedicures, facials-even chocolate martinis!) On Sunday we went antiqueing at a few of the many antique malls in the area. Our stay at the Munro House was absolutely wonderful and I hope to return again :)
Thank you for the compliments. We strive to make everyone's time with us a memorable experience. We are very proud of our staff. We enjoy recommending things to do and places to see in the area.
4.8 on May 19, 2010
I have been coming to the Munro House for years! Mike and Lori are so amazing and always make sure we have something to do when we're there. I will keep coming back as long as they're there.
Thank you for your loyalty. We try very hard to point people in the right direction when they are looking for things to do in our area. Concierge is one of our many hats!

Room was nice and we enjoyed it quite a bit. We would have preferred a more private breakfast with later time options. Also, one of the dogs smelled terrible and was with us during breakfast and was licking one of us during the meal.
We enjoy the community atmosphere of everyone at one big table for breakfast and believe that conversation with new friends is an important part of the B&B experience. Folks who would prefer a more private meal will be accommodated by request. Gilbert has developed a skin condition that we are now medicating. The condition began about the time of your visit. Had we noticed before you, he would have been left outside.
4.8 on April 06, 2010
Even with a same-day reservation (one hour prior to arrival), the Munro House hosts were ready to receive us as guests. The tour of the house was fascinating. The house is beautiful, and the decor is exactly as it should be given its pioneer origins (not the over-Victoriana frufru that you see in so many historic B&B properties). Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were wonderful. Our room was clean, comfortable, and tasteful. Bathroom was basic but clean. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and recommend Munro House highly.
Thank you for your kind words. We are happy that we were a good fit for you.

Mike and Lori are fabulous hosts! A warm and friendly atmosphere with a fabulous made to order breakfast and holistic massage therapist. A little piece of paradise.

The Breakfast was excellent, awesome homemade waffles. The value was not so good going through bed and breakfast.com, but the value would have been good going directly to the owners. stay away from b&b.com unless you would like to pay 30% more. On cleanliness it had a slight dustiness but overall very good.
Thanks, we are very proud of our waffle recipe. Just a clarification on the value statement, BNB.com does not charge the customer 30% more, the innkeeper receives less of the total room charge because of commissions. The price of the room is the same regardless of how it is reserved. BNB.com is basically acting as a travel agent and keeping a fee for selling a room and processing the transaction. All online booking agents like Expedia and Travelocity work on a similar commission basis for all lodging properties.

My fiancee' and I decided to have a winter staycation and Munro House was the perfect mini-getaway. The room we stayed in (George's Room) was warm, cozy, and romantic. Mike and Lori were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. When there was a mix-up in our dinner package due to one of the restaurants being closed, Mike was accommodating and handled the situation with grace. As for the spa services, we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing massage- our one complaint was the quality of the pedicure & facial for the price. Otherwise, our stay was impeccable and we definitely plan on visiting again sooner than later!
We try very hard to "make it right" (on the spot) when there is a problem, and we were glad you were satisfied with our alternate plan. We are now using Oprah's favorite brand of spa products--the "Philosophy" line has been very well received by our guests.

As soon as we entered Mike and Lori made us feel at home. They had beverages and goodies available any time we needed. I felt like I was visiting family instead of a Bed and Breakfast. The food was EXCELLENT!! The best fliet mignon I've ever had and if you can have Lori's famous waffles. I'm still thinking about them (drool) I am going to try and have a girls weekend sometime this summer there. Hopefully I can convince Lori to come and hang with us. (wink) I definitely recommend this B&B
Thank you. We try to give everyone the kind of experience you had.

Mike was very hospitable and knowledgeable about the history of the home. It was a great home cooked breakfast every morning with lots of options. George's room had everything we needed and very spacious. The B&B was in a great little town with a cute bookstore and homemade ice cream shop.
We get to "break in" a lot of people to the B&B experience and try to set the hopitality bar pretty high. We think Jonesville is a little piece of heaven where folks can go to and really relax. Not a lot of tourists around here, but enough to do along with good restaurants makes this a great place to enjoy a true getaway.

The Munro House is a beautiful period home, well appointed and with much character. It was the perfect venue for a winter evening as our room had a fireplace giving it ambiance and warmth. Mike, the host, graciously accommodated my two children (who attend the local college) for breakfast for a small fee. I look forward to staying at the Munro House in the future!
It is our opinion that parents are here to visit their college students, not so much to visit with us. Their student/children are always welcome to join their parents in our homey setting off-campus and are also welcome for breakfast.

This was my first visit to a B&B. Our stay was comfortable and the food was great. The murder mystery was fun. I would definitely do this again.
It was our pleasure to make your first B&B experience a good one. We usuually do a murder mystery every weekend in November and would be happy to have you come back.

My wife and I stayed at the Munro House for our 6th Anniversary. Mike and Lori were awesome and breakfast was amazing. Great room, great company and a great value. We had a blast and will definetly return. This is a must visit.
We serve the kind of breakfst that we enjoy--basic eggs and good home cooking with secret family recipes along with fresh cut fruit, "James Bond" orange juice and coffee. We hope that your 7th anniversary is just as good or better and would be happy to have you return to the Munro House.

My husband suprised me by booking a weekend at Munro House, complete with full spa package. Everything was wonderful, especially the massage. Would definately recommend this B & B to friends ad family who want a quick getaway...it's less than 2 hours from most metro Detroit suburbs. Mike and Lori were gracious, open and warm hosts. Thanks for making my big birthday extra special.

My husband and I have not been away for a full weekend since the birth of our daughter, who is turning 4 this month. We needed a weekend getaway, and chose the Munro House for the package that included dinner and massages for us. The restaurants that we went to had excellent food and the massage therapist was OUTSTANDING!!! It was a great stay and the owners, Mike and Lori, were extremely hospitable! If you want a quiet, relaxing place to escape to, the Munro House is the place to go!!! Thanks Mike and Lori!!!

Called in late in the afternoon on a Saturday for a two night stay - I didn't want to stay at the Fairfield Inn in Jackson. Mike was very accomodating, giving me the best room in the house. It was a great base for going to my daughter's graduation.

Munro House was close to where we were going and we had heard good things. The lovely house was very clean with a very authentic and historic feeling. We were made to feel right at home. The innkeepers were welcoming, very attentive to our needs and knowledgeable of the house. The breakfast was outstanding with wonderful family recipes and great conversation :-) Breakfast with the owners and guests was what we liked the most along with the puppies to pet.

George's Room has a nice rustic look. It was clean and very quiet. You could just relax and enjoy life. I had been looking at this as a getaway for a little while and when they offered the special, it was even better. I am very happy I did because now I can't wait to come back. The people were friendly and happy to open their house to the people that stay. You feel like your at home. Would recommend to all friends and family.

I had a great stay at this B&B by Hillsdale College and would definitely visit again. It was a huge beautiful house with all the service I could have ever imagined. I am a simple person and it felt like I was a king. I have stayed at a few other Michigan B&B spots, and this was probably the best stay yet!
5 on October 29, 2008
My staff and I will be spending a few days with Mike and Lori every year. As a tax service, we're ready to collapse (or kill each other) by April 15th. We went to Jonesville last year right after tax season and had such as great time, it's going to be an annual traditiion. Mike and Lori were great,they gave us thr run of the house. Lori took some of us horseback riding, some of us did nothing (which was wonderful!!). Food was excellent - we felt like family. We're already looking forward to our next trip.

Once you have been to Munro House B & B, you will never want to go anywhere else. The historical home is spacious and beautifully decorated. The fireplace and Jacuzzi tub makes your room a wonderful place to relax for a well deserved get away. The hosts, Mike & Lori, along with their son Chris, are absolutely wonderful. Chef's night is so much fun and is something you will talk about for a long time. The many spa services will make you feel like you are royalty. The local restaurants are fantastic and diverse. The Chicago Water Grill has a very nice menu and the service is fantastic. A trip to the Saucy Dog is a must! Great prices, even greater food, and depending on the night, entertainment! Breakfast at the Munro House is spectacular. The waffles are oh so yummy. Mike and Lori have a lot of ideas for things to do in the area if you wish to get out and see the local area. When you leave at the end of your trip, whether it was for pleasure or business, you will find you have made new friends and will be looking forward to your next trip. I have been there twice now and am planning my next visit, one of I hope many more.
