We stayed for a weekend and wish we could have stayed for two weeks. Kari and Dave do a fine job making guests feel at home. The deck is a fabulous place to sit and let the Lake experiece wash over you...if you love listening to waves, this place is for you. Come down in the morning and join in... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first time; two-night stay at The Waters Edge. From walking into the front door and meeting Kari, our innkeeper, to our comfy, cozy room on the 2nd floor overlooking the lake, to the tasty and plentiful breakfast the next morning.....everything was a wonderful experience. We loved talking with the others visitors and our innkeepers, in a... More

I'm glad you guys enjoyed your stay with me. I'm excited for you to come back (and stay in the Harley Room). I always enjoy talking with everyone in the morning over coffee. Thanks for the comment about the 'grounds'. I mow it myself! Enjoy your winter and see ya' next year! More

Just off the shore of Lake Michigan, At the Water's Edge was a perfect little B&B. Kari was so warm and welcoming, the room was perfect (I had the Harley room), breakfast was delish, and the views and sounds of the lake were to die for. Couldn't have asked for more! Can't wait to visit again!

"Slice of Heaven"? That's a pretty tall order to fill....glad I did for you. I really enjoyed our morning conversations. That's the best part about running a bed and breakfast, just yapping and laughing with the guests. I sure do hope you come back again. It was fun! More

I wish I could give this place 4.5. I very seldom do 5, unless everything is exceptional. We enjoyed our stay--especially sitting on the deck, having cheese, smoked fish, crackers and drinks while watching and listening to the waves roll in. Kari was very welcoming. She was present throughout the breakfasts and entered the conversations in a personable, unobtrusive way.... More

We enjoyed our stay "At The WATERS EDGE" it was so low key and comfortable. The room was very clean and spacious, the tub delightful and it was so nice to have a ref and microwave at our fingertips. The breakfast was tasty and fulfilling. But the best part was the sunrise on Lake Michigan right from our room. To... More

My husband and I decided to get away for a few days before the hectic school year with the kids. We enjoyed our 4-hr drive to get there. As soon as we pulled up (we were 1 hr late from check-in) and walked in, we were greeted by a smiling, friendly host, Kari. She told us she ran to the... More

Thanks you guys for the wonderful review. As I'm sure I mentioned, the Tropical Paradise room is my favorite as well. I have a lot of guests try to make rock towers... some succeed, but most fail. (I don't think yours is bad) It sure is fun to try. Love the pictures...especially the one of the deck from the second... More

My wife and I are newbies to the bed and breakfast scene, so we didn't go into our stay with much expectations. I'm so glad that we did though. The rooms were really cozy, and the view from our deck was really nice. The grounds are well kept, including a fire pit, hamcocks, and few steps to get down by... More
