I called to make a reservation and was told there was a vacancy and I could call back with a credit card number to hold. I was calling back within the hour. I called back as promised and no one answered. Left a message and no one returned the call. Called again first thing the following morning and it went... More

I am so sorry for this unfortunate situation. I remember this call and was hoping that I could find your number somehow or that I would catch your call. I was out fishing with my family and while bringing the boat in dropped my phone in Lake Michigan. In situations where we are not home we have all the calls... More

It was clear she cared about making her guests feel welcomed snd comfortable. The Finish pancake breakfast was ample and delicious. The Inn is an historic 1880's iron workers boarding house with many charming aspects. We encountered the train whistle referred to by an earlier reviewer and can honestly say that, while loud, it was not disturbing, but added to... More

Thank you for your honest review, it was lovely to have you stay. We really appreciate your positive outlook on the train, I believe you said it plays a D sharp chord. The train plays an important role in the history of the house and the area and most guests enjoy the sound of a train in an old mining... More

We stayed 2 nights at The Kipling House before heading to Mackinaw City and were so glad we decided on the B&B instead of a traditional motel. Meghan is a delight, wonderful cook as mentioned in other reviews, and so helpful in giving suggestions on what to see in the area. She had breakfast set in the dining room the... More

My husband and I find ourselves traveling to Escanaba regularly and Kipling House is always our first choice. Meghan and Robert Micheau are incredibly gracious and welcoming. Our needs are attended to with great care, and Meghan is an absolutely wonderful cook. The breakfasts are gourmet, and Meghan provides vegetarian options without blinking. She accommodates all dietary needs, which is... More

Learned of this place from TA and a few other web sources. The backyard cottage turned out to be a solid choice for our last night crossing the Upper Peninsula. The place was clean and ready (with ground coffee and cookies), had a parking spot off the (grass!) alley in back so we wouldn't have to park next to the... More

We had a wonderful weekday stay at the Kipling House on our way from Wayzata Minnesota to Mackinac Island. The Inn was a perfect spot to rest after a long drive. Its ideal for a family (and we were traveling with a 5 year old). Its a short walk to the shore and close to downtown Gladstone and 5 minutes... More

Upon our arrival, we were greeted to a plate of fresh, warm cookies (to die for!!!) and equally wonderful host, Meghan. My wife and I stayed in the cottage which was clean, cozy and inviting. Meghan provided helpful dinning suggestions (we arrived on Sunday and several places were closed). In the morning, she prepared an absolutely fabulous breakfast, one of... More

Megan is a wonderful host. She greated us warmly with a genuine smile and offered to help with our bags. We rented two rooms for one night and found both rooms to be clean and generous in size. In the evening milk, cherries, cookies, and chocolate torte were set out to enjoy on the large covered porch, pretty sunroom, or... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Kipling House with our children, ages 12, 18 and 22. We were able to book 2 rooms; one on the 2nd floor for my husband and I that had an attached bath with clawfoot tub and separate shower. Only thing a little quirky with the room was that the door that separated the... More
