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

My wife and I stayed here overnight on the way to Mackinac Island. Each of the rooms at this little B&B on the shores of Lake Michigan has a theme, we stayed in the honeymoon suite. 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 purchased a Groupon for at the Water's Edge. Dave was able to accommodate our last-minute request. We arrived a little late in the evening. But, we found... More

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

We have stayed in Door County in the past but we wanted to try something in the same general area that was not as congested and a little less "touristy". We have also visited Algoma in the past and enjoyed this quiet picturesque lake side town. We decided to give a B&B near Algoma a try for a little "mini"... More

Thanks guys - I always appreciate a great review. And what did I tell you about 'Moe's Corner'? It really has the best chicken and best atmosphere around. I sure am hoping to see you again.

Very nice place but not what we had hoped for. Original looking for a romantic place but this wasn't it. This place was great, located on the water but the rooms were theme rooms, Harley room, music room, carribean room, etc.the owners Kari and Dave were very nice and helpful.

We had an absolutely wonderful time "at the Water's Edge." As a quick getaway it was a great place for my boyfriend and I. We stayed in the Tropical Room, which was so cute and nice.

Thank you Britnee. I do try to make all my guests feel like part of the family...I'm glad you really felt that way! I agree that there's isn't much to do in Algoma, but that's part of the charm. It's a much more peaceful, quiet place (unlike the hustle-and-bustle of Door). And it is much cooler here as well, needing... More

We spent two nights at the Waters Edge. The view from the deck and even our room was amazing. The sounds of the waves at night lulled me to sleep. Kari made a great breakfast and made everyone feel welcome, she even made me a gluten free dish. The next time we are in the area we will be sure... More
