Very enjoyable stay in a classic Victorian home. Quite affordable with a tasty breakfast. Lumber barren Ammi Wright's history in the town of Alma (and in the house) makes for a good story. Must be honest, I rated this B & B excellent because it beats out the local competition by a mile (motels,etc.)

I sent an e-mail a few days ago, asking about availability. No reply. That is all I can say. Have not actually stayed there overnight. I believe a courtesy reply would have been due, even if there was no availability for the day I asked about.

Gerry S, Owner at Saravilla Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

We are sorry you did not get a response to your inquiry as we do respond quickly to all emailed questions concerning availability, whether we are booked for the proposed dates or not. Other than the usual idiosyncrasies with cyberspace one thing we have encountered since acquiring Saravilla last October is that some websites still list the former owner's email... More

Second stay here and it was great again. The new owners are very friendly and very attentive. Nice breakfast options, but the real appeal is the comfortable and clean rooms, the location near campus and the ability to have a lot of folks in one place and be able to visit. We had 3 rooms, six people, plus others not... More

Stayed in the Turret room for two nights. The previous owners/innkeepers did a great job renovating this great house. The wife and I have been to many B&B's in and around Michigan and I must say this house and the unique amenities offered are near the top of our list. The new innkeepers Gerry and Ronald are good hosts and... More

My husband and I stayed here last night. We were in the orchard room. The inn itself was simply beautiful! The orginal decor was just stunning! We will definitely be return customers! From the moment we walked in we felt comfortable and welcome. Please do not change a thing!

This was our second visit to Saravilla and it was as pleasant as the first. The Garden Room was beautifully decorated, sunlit and comfortable. Tim and Lori were the perfect hosts who served a beautiful breakfast. Oh, and one more thing, Saravilla is located in a quite residential neighborhood which means we can sit on the front porch veranda and... More

Wonderful historic home, kind hosts and yummy food! The location has easy access to many cities in mid-Michigan, There is a hot tub too! It would be a wonderful place if your son or daughter go to Alma College for Parents Weekend!

Charming, super clean, comfortable, excellent service and great hosts make you, literally, feel right at home. Great breakfast! My daughter and I stayed 1 night to attend the Alma College Freshman orientation. Loved the proximity to downtown Alma where we explored the area. I wish I could have stayed at Saravilla another day just to relax on the front porch... More
