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

So glad you enjoyed your visit to the states, as well as making my place a part of it. Anytime you come back here, you're always welcome 'at the Waters Edge'. Too much food...? We like to eat around here! :) I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and thank you very much again. 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. Well this is the perfect place! Our room was clean and romantic, just as advertised. Kari was awesome, from the great breakfast to the Door... More

Well, thank you very much Sue for the nice review. I'm glad you found the Honeymoon room romantic. I appreciate kind words about my breakfasts all the time. Sunrises are always worth getting up for. They are gorgeous!! I'm looking forward to your next visit. See ya then. More

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

Thank you for your review. I know there's not a lot to do in Algoma, but that's part of it's quiet charm. Make sure you check out our rooms on our website at: www.atthewatersedgebnb.com to see all the room décor. Thanks again. More

We had 2 nights stay at a very wonderful place-thanks Kari! Your breakfasts were great-especially the blueberry stuffed french toast! We had a great time and will be back if in the area. The view in our suite(honeymoon) was sweet! Thanks again!

My husband and I spent two nights at the waters edge. It was a great time. Kari does a wonderful job making sure you have everything you need. We will return for another visit. The view is beautiful from your room and the sounds of the lake lull you to sleep

The view is amazing! The building is rustic and clean. The owners are very nice. It's a very laid back atmosphere with everything you need for a relaxing stay. You do not have to share a bathroom. Each room has their own. What you see on the web site is exactly what you can expect. We were in the Northwoods... More

Kari, one of the owners, is awesome. She makes you feel so at home. You are right on Lake Michigan, there is no beach area but walking along the shore is fun and there is a place to sit and relax by the waterfront. Breakfasts are phenomenal, all homemade, nice to talk with the others staying in the place. Chipmunks... More
