My wife and I recently stayed at the House on the Hill and couldn't have been happier with our accommodation, the "Aspen Room". My wife is paraplegic and uses a Quicki Ti wheelchair. She had no problem with any aspect of the room, the sink, shower, and commode were well placed with good clearances and good transfer heights. The bed... More

A friend of mine and myself came back to this heaven on the hill. We enjoyed so much the tranquil evenings sitting on the porch, early morning birds signing, the very healthy and wonderfully made breakfast and the canoe ride on a very peaceful lake. So close to Charlevoix and yet far enough to be away from the city's noises.... More

The House on the Hill was a perfect place to spend our 25th Anniversary! The setting is beautiful, the home is inviting, and the room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The view from the Rose Room was spectacular! Marci is a wonderful host, meeting all of our needs and answering all of our questions. The refreshment station off the main... More

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!
