We spent three nights at the Inn and can't say enough nice things about it. Christine and her staff's hospitality made our stay special and relaxing. We have stayed in many small inns around the world and our room, The Dragonfly Room, is one of our favorites. The light-filled room is beautifully appointed and has a view overlooking the natural...

I just love this place. Tastefully and comfortably furnished. All the little details are seen to by the hostess. Yummy snacks, coffee and drinks available in ready supply in the kitchen. Beautiful grounds. And, a great home-cooked breakfast! We didn't get a chance to walk the grounds, but they look gorgeous!

The grounds are well kept and we managed to get there before a storm came across lake MI that night. We were the only ones that had rented a room for that night, so Christine allowed us to select which room we wanted to stay in. She asked us what we would like for breakfast and suggested we eat at... More

My husband and I stayed at The Painted Turtle Inn over Memorial Day weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We cannot compliment the inn and the owners enough! Christine was very welcoming from the beginning, giving us the lay of the land and chatting. The entire facility is immaculate, recently renovated and super clean. The décor and finishes show the owners... More

I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and this was hands down the nicest one. Very modern/clean and newly renovated house. A cozy fireplace with lots of games and reading materials. Delicious food - from local wine and yummy fresh cookies in the afternoon time to the 3 course breakfast in the morning. Christine is a great host -... More
