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

This place is on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. My wife and I stayed at the honeymoon sweet. There was a whirlpool tub. Decor was a little cheesy, like a 15 year old girl designed the room. Beds were comfortable. Place was very quiet. They have areas outside where you can sit and stare at the lake or set up... More

Very clean and neat. All the comforts of home with a fantastic view of Lake Michigan right outside our door. The breakfasts were delicious and the hostess was born for that job...very outgoing, cheerful and helpful.

Okay, the wife dragged me kicking and screaming to a B&B by the seashore. While there we participated in a Lobster Boil up the coast, picnic with smoked fish, toured a winery and tasted some product, toured the next door brewery and tasted a few brewskis and lunched on their deck,, relaxed on the B&B deck, sat on the beach...

This is a wonderful B&B on the shore of Lake Michigan. The rooms are quaint & comfortable. The breakfasts are amazing. And the best part is the hostess. Wonderful place for a weekend or a week. Great place to get to everything in Door County from.

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. Between the... More

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
