“Can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

This was my third (or fourth?) trip to Saugatuck and I loved staying at the Valentine Lodge, it's my new favorite! I needed some R&R as a break from the busy Chicago life and I sure got it in the beautiful Valentine Lodge. The room was very clean and felt like home (though much nicer than my apartment!), and the breakfast was delicious. I ate a ton which gave me lots of energy to go for bike rides, down to the beach, and explore the downtown area which is by the river and great to walk around and get drinks or food. The owners were very friendly and interesting and we talked about painting, traveling, among other things, and I also found the other guests to be very friendly and fun to speak with at breakfast.

Came here for some serenity and certainly was not disappointed. Stayed five (5) nights. Valentine Lodge was a home away from home. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was delightful and extremely clean. Beautiful and quiet setting. Weekend breakfast was a hot breakfast consisting of three delicious quiches, fresh fruit, homemade breads, fruit yogurt, fresh coffee & orange juice. Our breakfast thru the week was more on the continential side with fresh fruit, homemade breads, cereal, yogurt, coffee & orange juice. Close to Douglas & Oval beaches. We loved this place!

The Valentine Lodge has a great location; near Lakeshore Drive and Oval Beach. The room we had was fine. BUT... the parking is on the lawn, and we soon found out why there were so few guests there in August. The couple who run the place don't really seem to care whether they have guests or not. It is really false advertising to call it a B and B, because during the week there is no breakfast to speak of. Set out on the porch was cold cereal, milk, a few blueberries, and a pot of lousy coffee. That was it!!! No juice, no bread, no muffins, no nothing! They do NOT make it clear on their website that weekday breakfast is continental only, and a bad one at that. We had to go out for breakfast both days we stayed there. What a disappointment! We will NEVER go back.
