Beautiful B&B located close to downtown Kalamazoo. Well stocked kitchen and a variety of food such as eggs, sausage, yogurt, granola and cereal. No fruit as pictured in the photos. Our first night was spectacular, but the second night the guests downstairs came in noisily at 12:30 am and were smoking and loud until 4 am, a blatant disregard for... More

I managed to convince my daughter to go away for a weekend where we could be together and catch up, without her dealing with her senior year college demands. We could basically go anywhere in a 100-mile radius from where she studies, (I had to take a 7 hour flight anyway). We ended up choosing the Kalamazoo area because we... More

I've traveled extensively all over the country and stayed in quite a few "B&Bs." It takes a lot to make me stop and say, "wow!" Kara's Kottages very much impressed me. The use of the space and the interior design is outstanding. Very comfortable, very cozy... if you need it, it's in the room. Now this isn't a bed &... More

Stayed in this dinky b & b for one night, it was so lovely to have our own cosy space with everything we needed. There are lots of little touches to make this place special : basket of DVDs to watch, fridge and cupboards with lots of food items available to us and included in the price; on site washing...

Kara's Kottages is the perfect place to stay when visiting Kalamazoo either with a family or just as a couple. The Birch Kottage was decorated with great style and seemed very spacious. The amenities that are provided make the place really feel like a home away from home. All of the little touches don't go unnoticed. Although we live nearby... More

My wife and I loved the Birch Kottage for an overnight getaway recently. Very roomy, beautifully decorated, great amenities, extremely comfortable. Kara did not miss a single detail. It was a little different B&B experience to make your own breakfast, but the kitchen was so well stocked it turned out great. Really amazing what you get for the price. It... More

What a wonderful place to stay!! We just wanted to sneak away from the house for a night, and it was like we went from one home to another. Kara has truly outdone herself with every detail. From the time we walked in, we were amazed with the attention she has paid to make us feel at home. The feel... More

Such a gorgeous Place! It had everything I was looking for and more. Kara thought of every little detail. We were able to make breakfast and enjoy a lazy morning. There's a patio with a Grill and a fire pit. Separate entrances so you don't have to mingle with the other guests if you don't want to like normal B&B's.... More

We stayed at K.K.'s in Kzoo in March 2013. Arriving late, we entered the Pine Cone suite to a warm, inviting "gas fire" and immediately felt relieved, relaxed, and at home. We had never done a B&B, and though Kara's is more of a "hybrid" B&B and "extended stay hotel" (no common areas, no prepared breakfast, but a fully stocked... More

What a find- like a hotel suite in a house!! We got 2 bedrooms with a Queen, Double and twin. Perfect for my husband, myself and 3 picky kids (19,17,12)!! Plus a big bathroom, decent size living area and kitchen stocked with food!! So much more than a hotel at the same price as a good hotel. Plus it was... More
