We were delighted to find this facility. It very much added to our trip. It was impeccably kept and very charming. The service was perfect. We have already recommended to other friends visiting this area.

When visiting Alma, you will not find a better home away from home than the Saravilla. The home is beautiful with a rich history; the rooms are well appointed and quiet; Gerry was a delightful host. Overall a wonderful night's stay.

Fantastic old building with such great potential. Shame that the Gerry and Ronaldo are not doing more with the place. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated, but not particularly well maintained/cleaned -- ours had cobwebs hanging from the canopy of the bed, and large gaps surrounding the window a/c, letting the cold air out and the hot air in....

Thanks for your review and my apologies for the housecleaning problems and AC air leaks. Our housekeeper has been with Saravilla for 6 years and prides herself on her work--I will share the observations with her so we don't muss up again. More

When traveling to Alma we cannot recommend any better place to stay. We have visiting examiners for our dance program stay each year, our parents and relatives have all have great experiences at Saravilla.

Our guest speakers said it was a pleasurable experience. They enjoyed the history of the Saravilla and the breakfast was delightful! They would recommend this B&B to everyone passing through. Thank you for surpassing their expectations.

This was a lovely bed and breakfast in rural Michigan. The villa itself was originally a mansion, and the B&B reflects that. It is huge! We were there for a family member's wedding and they had their rehearsal dinner in the lower level, with room to spare. I honestly believe I got the best room as it had the most... More

Enjoyed the stay at the Sara Villa. This is a wonderful old mansion, the rooms are spacious and the bathrooms very comfortable. Our host was excellent and the food was great. Truly enjoyed spending time on the veranda, well maintained and comfortable
