We just spent one night here, on our way up north! It is right on Lake Michigan with beautiful views from the decks or balconies. Easy access to a walk on the beach. Each room is large and uniquely decorated. The breakfast was amazing! Stuffed blueberry French toast!!!

We spent 2 nights in the Classic Music room. Loved that we had a front and back door to let the wonderful Lake Michigan breeze pass through. I'd rather stay more than 2 nights as we had a lot of things in the area that we wanted to see, and weren't able to enjoy the room enough. Kari is super,... More

Thanks. I do get a lot of requests for the Music room. Must be all those pillows. LOL. Only one room has A/C, as you really don't need it. 'Natures' air is WAY better! Looking forward to seeing you again...... More

We stayed in the nautical room, and loved it,since it was our second time here in two years. Kari and her husband are so accomodating and friendly. The breakfast are out of this world. It is easy access to it and has rooms that accomodate the handicap. The whirlpool is an added bonus.

'Fantastic Hosts'? Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed breakfast as well. The Nautical room is the only handicapped accessible room, but it is enjoyed by everyone. Thank you again and we will see you soon. More

This is probably the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed with the folks at the Waters' Edge, and I look forward to the trip every summer!

We were just there last week and it was wonderful. We had the tropical room and it was great. Our room overlooked Lake Michigan. We had our own private balcony. The breakfast was soooooo... good. Keri was a pleasure to talk to. Would highly recommend

Our recent visit to the Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. Beautiful view of Lake Michigan from your room and back deck. Delicious breakfasts, with great conversations with Kari and other guests. The fireworks over the 4th of July weekend by Dave and Kari were incredible, they made us feel like part of their family with their great hospitality. Can't wait... More

What a B&B should be like. Clean rooms each with their own private entrance and balcony overlooking Lake Michigan. exquisite breakfast of blueberry French toast and sausage links. The owner Carrie was very friendly and a pleasure. Highly recommend!!!

We were in for a big treat! Unknowing to us, we were entertained with some awesome fireworks on Saturday night.

We visited for a girl's wine tour. Kari was very friendly and attentive to her visitors. Her breakfasts are delicious. The rooms are each themed and are clean and well kept. If you like quiet solitude with a beautiful view, you cannot help but love this place. I would certainly return for another visit.
