Driving up to the House on the Hills feels like coming home, knowing the next couple of days will be relaxing and enjoyable. How can you go wrong when greeted by Marci’s gracious and warm welcome, along with warm chocolate chip cookies! Coffee, tea and soft drinks are available all day and evening. The grounds are lovely and what a... More

It's been six years since we last stayed at the House on the Hill and we're happy to have returned. Marci & Phillip have done a nice job with some improvements to the house and grounds. The lake access has been improved and kayaking along the chain of lakes was fun. The B & B is centrally located to a... More

Everything about The House On The Hill was fabulous, and I don’t throw that word around lightly. The breakfasts Marci prepares every morning are an outright 10! There is plenty of praise throughout this page and all matched up to ours, would add just sitting-out as a great activity here with many super quiet and private opportunities…..what great views and...

We stayed at the House on the Hill for two nights, and it was a fantastic experience! As a young couple in our early twenties, we were looking for a vacation with lots of activity and this place has it all included! You can paddle board, kayak, and canoe on the beautiful lake and it is all included in the... More

What makes, The House on the Hill special? Everything, Marci is wonderful. From the moment you walk in the door until the time you leave, she makes you feel at home. The house is beautiful, the land was beautiful, our room (the geometric room) was comfortable and inviting. We slept like a babies every night. The lake view was amazing.... More

The House on the Hill is a rare respite in the midst of northern Michigan summer vacations! I was greeted by Marci upon arrival - she was gracious and welcoming.Traveling solo for a wedding at Castle Farms, I couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. I was very comfortable and felt safe there. Thanks for a perfect stay - I... More

Quite simply... this is the best Bed & Breakfast we've stayed at. Wonderful setting, fantastic room, unsurpassed breakfast, magnificent front porch, included activities (kayaking, paddle boards, hiking trails, etc), wonderfully accommodating and friendly hostess Marcie... all at a very fair & reasonable price. Thanks! We'll be back!

This Inn was very nice and peaceful. The owners were accommodating. The views were incredible and the rooms were nice and cozy. We enjoyed a picnic on the beautiful wrap around porch overlooking the lake.

We were so refreshed and renewed to stay at the House on the Hill B&B! They were so attentive to every detail. We cannot say enough good and give it enough blessing for being able to stay at this beautiful place. We highly recommend it and hope to return again soon.

This is the perfect bed and breakfast as far as I'm concerned. Our room was clean and spacious, and we looked forward to each unique, gourmet breakfast with anticipation. It's a short drive to Charlevoix or Boyne City, but there's plenty to keep you busy right on the property with trails to explore and a lake to enjoy on their... More
