We stayed at Dempsey Manor over Manistee's Victorian Christmas Weekend recently and felt like we stepped back in time. What a lovely, well-appointed period home we had the privilege to enjoy during our two nights away. Our accommodations in the Angel Suite provided plenty of room, along with a sitting area for reading and conversing during our stay. We enjoyed... More

Our "girls getaway" weekend at the Dempsey Manor was perfect! The mansion is gorgeous and our hosts went above and beyond to welcome us make sure our every need was met. The Angel Room was spacious, yet cozy. I would definitely recommend a stay here!

We had a great two-night stay at the Dempsey Manor. Jim and Jan couldn't have been better hosts. The manor is a museum with artifacts from around the world and has one of the largest private Chines porcelain collections in Michigan. Jan serves a different sumptuous gourmet breakfast for her guests each morning and she and Jim serve wine with... More

The Dempsey Manor was one of those experiences when traveling that you won't ever forget. The manor, the authentic Victorian furniture, the ambiance, the three course breakfast and the lovely inn keepers made for an interesting and fun adventure to the west coast of Michigan. I would recommend this place to anyone who has a sense of adventure and something... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Dempsey Manor, a beautifully cared for and furnished B&B in Manistee. The hosts were gracious and caring. They shared much about the house and the town. We enjoyed the "wine hour," reading in the library, a walk through the neighborhood, and the company of Jim and Jan. This was all topped off by... More

Rich and Pat -- What superb guests you are. Jan and I are delighted you see and enjoy the richness of this little castle and its colorful history just as we do. And nothing makes Jan blush pinker than compliments about her menus. You've made our month, and truly hope we'll be seeing you both again sometime soon...Ann Arbor is... More

My sisters and I spent two, comfy nights and three relaxing days in the quaint Lake Michigan city of Manistee. What a treat to find our luxurious lodging at the Dempsey Manor where our host and hostess made us feel like old friends and honored guests! The Manor is a fascinating example of the lumbering era's grand architecture and is... More

It was such a pleasure to stay at the Dempsey Manor again! All of my expectations were met and it was great to see the owners, Jim and Jan again. They were able to accommodate all of my requests, from the room type to special dietary needs. This is the only place I'll stay at when visiting Manistee!

This is a beautiful old house and a cute little town. If you're looking for a romantic weekend I'd highly recommend this place. We enjoyed a bottle of wine in the conservatory in the evening and had an amazing breakfast the following morning. We did stay the evening during the heat wave when the air conditioning went out. It was... More

It was truly a delight to spend a glorious weekend at Dempsey Manor!!! It is a beautifully restored and decorated Victorian home that exemplifies luxury and opulence all with comfort in mind. I could have spent many hours taking in the Victorian decor and enoying the varied selection of books in the library. However, because we'd never visited Manistee before,... More

I have stayed at the Dempsey Manor 3 times, hope to stay several more! The Manor is a beautiful example of the Victorian era, each of the rooms were decorated with an individual theme - no cookie cutter rooms. Beds are comfortable, I slept well each time. I particularly appreciated my charming hosts, the food, and efforts to make my... More
