My wife and I stayed at the Stuart Avenue Inn in Kalamazoo, MI and had a very enjoyable experience. The inn is a beautiful, charming 130 year old home from a by-gone era . The proprietors, Chris and Dana, have obviously put great love and care into restoring it to its original beauty. The inn has a homey feel to... More

I have nothing but praise for this lovely bed and breakfast. Chris and Dana were incredible hosts - going above and beyond to make our stay an enjoyable one. The food was delicious - I recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes. The rooms were perfect with comfortable beds and cozy nooks for reading.

Loved this historical house! Amazing woodwork and the main floor is fabulous! The breakfast was absolutely delicious! The owners, Chris and Dana, serve you and then come and spend time talking to all the guests! They were a lot of fun and we could have sat and talked to them for hours! We made the 5-minute walk to a wonderful... More

I loved this bed and breakfast hotel! There was nothing wrong about it. Me and my family stayed for one night. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Kalamazoo. It's probably the best you can find. The beds were very cosy and our room was huge. The hotel owners were a very kind and nice couple, they're... More

Chris and Dana were wonderful hosts. My room was very large and the bed was extra comfortable. I had a small refrigerator, a microwave, and a table from which I could work. The pancakes were so delicious that no syrup should be used. The flavor of the strawberries, blueberries, and the low carb base were perfect. And when you want... More

One night with hosts Dana and Steve and we're sold. Elegant historic home convenient to everything and freshly prepared breakfast were highlights of our stay. Delightful young hound name of Arlo made it even homier. Stairs were easy for us old timers to negotiate with our bags and there are plenty of downstairs seating and reading options if you don't...

We stayed one night after a show at Miller Auditorium. Chris was able to tell us a shortcut out from the theatre to get away from all the traffic. Our room was spacious and comfortable for an affordable price. Breakfast was delicious with lemon ticotta pancakes. We already made a reservation to go back.
