We stayed at lily 5, which is room up in the attic. Climbing up is not a problem for us. The room is generally very clean and has everything you need. However, some issues need to be addressed. First, the Air-con or fan in the room is very noisy. We simply chose to shut them off. Fortunately it was not... More

My best friend and packed a bag and headed toward the West side of Michigan is search of sun and relaxation. The first beach we came to was in Grand Haven. After a few hours of waves and sun, we checked Google for local hotels and found availability at Serendipity Resort and Suites, located in the center of town and... More

Our room had simple sheer curtains, no shades. It was light at 5 am and at night I changed in the dark. In the extremely squeaky floor, I could see light through the cracks to the apartment below, and there was a 2" gap under the door to the hallway next to my bed leaving absolutely no privacy. The hotel... More

We got a suite in the Lillie house on Sunday night of Labor Day weekend. 3 kids 3 adults. $275 for a poorly air conditioned bare boned room in a house. There is no where to eat even though there is a full kitchen. Stick with a regular hotel or a more modern condo!

We celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary in the Garden House. Unlike so many of the houses and B&B's in the area, we were able to rent from a Wednesday to a Friday. From our first phone call to Serendipity, till our check-out time, the staff was amazing. I have stayed in 5 star hotels that could take a lesson... More

We stayed in the Tuscan House. 2 adults and 3 children under 7 fit perfectly. Bonus - the closest was big enough to hold the pack n play for our youngest, and keeping him in his own space meant everyone slept much better! The pool area was by far our favorite! In fact, I'm sure we missed out on tons... More

My sister and I stayed in the Lillie House again for 2 nights this year. This time we had Unit 5 which is an attic room (Yes there is AC) and it was comfortable for the two of us. It reminded both of us of the bedroom area I had when we were growing up. Long and narrow space, bathroom... More

Our family stayed in the Tuscan Inn and very pleased with the accommodations. Our suite was so pretty and had everything we needed during our stay. We found both the room and the grounds to be very clean and well kept. We spent quite a lot of time at the pool (beautiful) and at night at the fire pit. Staff... More

We just got back from staying at the serendipity resort for 2 nights with 2 other families. Overall it was a nice experience! Pros: Honestly the BEST location one could ask for...if looking to stay downtown. Traveled with a 33 week pregnant friend, a newborn and 2 kids just over a year. The walk was perfect and so convenient without... More
