Our first experience at a B&B, at the Water's Edge, in Algoma, WI, made us instantly like the choice we had made. Owners Keri and Dave made us feel 'right at home'. the decor was well done (they gave us a sneak-peak at ALL of their themed rooms) the place was well-kept, up-to-date and the atmosphere quite friendly.

Going there every year for winefest .... I can't ask for more, best view out of the honeymoon suite, awesome bonfires at night, best breakfast in town and a beautiful hostess. Very relaxing time even with winefest going on. I am always leaving with a great smile and looking forward to next year.

What a wonderful Bed & Breakfast. We were greeted like family and made the "Northwoods" suite our home for 2 nights. Kari is a fantastic hostess and great cook. Breakfasts such as stuffed blueberry french toast and cheese soufle with congenial boarders provided a great start to our day. This B&B has Lake Michigan in its back yard. There are... More

This was our 1st experience at a Bed and Breakfast. The Tropical Paradise Room we stayed in was uniquely decorated and very cosy. Dave and the Staff had outstanding customer service skills which provided a 5 star experience at this B&B!!

Always glad to make someones 'first-time' a great one. The only thing is that we have no staff.... It's just Dave and I. We do it all.... (and sometimes, that can get crazy....) Thank you for your nice review and maybe we will see you again. More

I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before and this was the most amazing experience. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and the room was immaculate and the view was so beautiful. Breakfast was absolutely delicious - blueberry stuffed french toast was served that morning. Kari and Dave are so positive... More

Tee-hee - I'm giggling just thinking about your sweet mom trying to get in the bed. That's why the steps are there. But, still fun, no doubt. I'm glad you liked the breakfasts and I'll let all the gangs at those restaurants know that you had a good experience with them as well. You two were both very sweet. I... More

Come for the view, stay for the breakfast! Our first time at a B&B. We stayed 7 nights! We had the Hollywood room and enjoyed this experience with the very entertaining and personable host Kari. She was very accomodating and serves up a fantastic breakfast. I recommend the Blueberry stuffed french toast but really all of the choices are yummy... More

All of the rooms have their own private bath and a great view of Lake Michigan. You can actually walk down to the shore... More

My husband and I came to the Inn to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. We had no prior knowledge of the Inn or the area. We just wanted a nice romantic getaway.

We had a wonderful experience 'at the Water's Edge' in Algoma. Kari was a great host, and our room had a great view of the lake -- we really enjoyed sitting in the evenings with the door open and listening to the surf on the lake. (Not in Kansas anymore!) Breakfasts were good, and visiting while Kari fed the chipmunks... More
