I've always wanted to stay in a B&B and I'm so glad Dempsey Manor was my first experience! I could feel the love of the home and warmth that the business partners, Jim and Jan, put into it from the decor to the service. It was so nice to get a tour of the home and to hear about it's... More

Jan and I were so glad to meet you and to have you for our guest here at the Manor, even though -- as you said -- your stay was a brief one. But most of all, we will always appreciate your sensitivity to the genuine love we have for this wonderful old mansion and the work we do here... More

My husband and I wanted to visit someplace in Michigan where we had not visited before for a little get away enjoying the Fall colors. We saw the Dempsey Manor on trip advisor, we made a phone call, spoke with Jim, made our reservations and were off to Manistee and the Dempsey Manor. From the moment we got there it... More

Thanks, Linda, for the best review one could ask for. And my gosh...you must have done it in the car as soon as you departed for that long drive out of Michigan!

Our stay at the Dempsey Manor was one in a million. The grand architecture, design, and unique detail all over the home was fascinating. There is a story behind each and every piece in the home. The host was unmatched in his ability to make guests feel at home, spoiled, and 100% attended to. I am 33 weeks pregnant and... More

Our stay, completely accidental,was wonderful! My mother and I couldn't have planned a better place for us to stay overnight as we ventured north to see the fall leaves. Fortunately, we were able to give a few hours notice and our host was willing to accommodate us. Jim met us and carried in our luggage, making us feel welcome from... More

You did come to Manistee at the perfect time this Fall season, and I am very glad we were able to share it with you and be your base of operations! Your kind comments were a welcome concerto of praise. Nothing could have made us happier than surprising you with more than you expected. The crescendo and finale of your... More

We stayed at Dempsey Manor for 3 nights. Jim made sure he was available when we arrived since it was outside of the normal check in time. The accommodations are gracious and inviting. My husband and I stayed in the Sage Room. Breakfast each morning was delicious and a wonderful start to our day. On our first morning, Jim even... More

My husband and I stayed at Dempsey Manor over the 4TH of July. It's a unique place. There is so much to take in, with the Victorian Decor. We had very sumptuous breakfasts every morning, and there is snack table for guests use, all day long. Wine to inbibe in, if you so choose to do so. Loved our room.... More
