It is a very old fashioned place. But its cute and comfortable. If you want a REAL bed and breakfast then this is the place to be. No owner bothering you every second or trying to get you to leave. Very lovely breakfast display in the morning. Just overall has a very homey feel.

Really love this little place, we've stayed here a couple of times. Wanted a place that felt good when we were there but was close to all the interesting things to do in the charming town of Vermilion. Owner is nice, is from Vermilion, so he's a good source of info about things around town. Nice establishment, clean, great rooms,... More

Good location - close to downtown, shops, restaurants, bars, and the lake. Room was clean and decorated with antiques. Owner was knowledgable and offered suggestions of things to do and see. Well-known 4 star French restaurant nearby. (Too bad Great Lakes Museum has closed.) Public beach.

It has a rather shabby appearance and is simply poorly maintained. When my husband called to make a reservation... More

I am sorry you folks did not enjoy your stay. We do have larger rooms available but the prices vary and your husband chose one of the smaller rooms. It does ,however have a very large bathroom with 2 large windows for natural light as well as a ceiling fixture. Yes, the fixture does have a pull chain ,which works... More

Was in a very convenient spot - downtown Vermilion and the beach were both walkable. Owners weren't really around. Just went to the room assigned to us on the whiteboard outside. The breakfast was basic - self serve donuts, cereal, and hard boiled eggs. Very little hot water, no cable TV, and the regular TV appeared to flicker whenever there... More

Barnacle Bill S, Owner at Gilchrist Guesthouse, responded to this review

We are sorry we were not home at your time of check-in. We try to be flexible with our check-in time to make it more convenient to guests, as opposed to a set time. With only 4 rooms it is not possible to have someone man the lobby at all times. We are never far from the house and often... More
