We visited for a girl's wine tour. Kari was very friendly and attentive to her visitors. Her breakfasts are delicious. The rooms are each themed and are clean and well kept. If you like quiet solitude with a beautiful view, you cannot help but love this place. I would certainly return for another visit.

We celebrated our ten year anniversary here and couldn't have had a better time. We stayed in the honeymoon themed room and it was warm, cozy, super relaxing, and private. We absolutely loved the view of Lake Michigan and it was like being on the ocean listening to the waves at night. :) The breakfasts were yummy and Kari was... More

Outstanding from start to finish. This is a family-run B&B with about 6 rooms. The hosts are friendly and a wealth of area information. The breakfasts are excellent. Each room is individually decorated (there are photos on their web site) in ways that make you feel at home -- like you have come to visit your favorite aunt. We stayed... More

Wow - 'like visiting your favorite aunt'?? Love it. That's a great compliment. (FYI - I have 7 rooms all individually decorated.) Glad you stayed with me for the Packer game and parked by Brad, (he's not actually our bro-in-law, but we are good friends) Anyways, looking forward to your next trip out here and 'Go Pack Go'!!

I loved the view of the lake from our room and the sound of the waves. I was skeptical at first due to the lack of a/c, but it is so close to the water that it was cool enough with just the windows open. The owners are very friendly and great at giving recommendations on places to eat and... More

Nice picture of 'Shorty', my chipmunk. (She is my favorite...shhhh, don't tell the others) You will have to come back when 'Mama', my groundhog, is out. (That's earlier in the year.) Thanks again for staying with us and I will see you soon. More

If you are looking for a quaint little place in Algoma, this is it! Kari was a wonderful hostess! Very accommodating to her guests! Each room has a different theme, but a gorgeous water view! You can't beat this place for a stay on Lake Michigan.

Very friendly and accommodating owners. We had our motorcycle in a trailer, they let us put our cycle in their personal garage. Comfy bed. Great breakfasts. Right on Lake Michigan. Beautiful deck to sit on and gaze at the lake. Great recommendations for activities in the area.

We had a great 2 night stay as part of our circular tour of Lake Michigan. In terms of location, it's only 2 minutes in the car from downtown Algoma and so you can't really walk to the nearest restaurant. However, this means it's in a nice quiet location and although there's a main road outside, we were not affected... More

We spent four nights at this Bed and Breakfast in celebration of our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Kari was such a warm and welcoming hostess and gave us some great conversations at breakfast as well as good food. Each unit has it's own theme and ours was tropical. She is an artist and had decorated it in that theme. The bed... More

This was my boyfriends and I first weekend alone in 2 years. Neither of us had been out to Door County and were looking for something just outside there, away from all the touristy stuff.

We had stayed here for a weekend and had the honeymoon suite. We did not make use of the whirlpool bath tub but instead really enjoyed the marvellous lakeview when getting up and the sound of the lake when going to sleep. The room itself was spacious and full of slightly cliché decoration which was not entirely to our liking... More
