My wife and I and our best friends recently stayed at the Stuart Avenue Inn as part of a memorial event for my mother. A part of the event was a reception also held at the Inn. Chris and Dana, the owners, could not have done anything more to make us feel welcome and to help ensure the success of... More

Just what was needed. Quiet, clean and such great vibes from the inn-keepers. They were knowledgable and were able to give us great suggestions for restaurants and places to check out. The breakfast was great--especially the pancakes. The old house is charming and full of odds and ends--books, photos and the like that make any walk through the house slow... More

Wonderful B&B in a very convenient location for downtown Kalamazoo & beyond, with lovely, friendly, helpful hosts in Dana & Chris, & great breakfasts. We stayed in the Bartlett room which was spacious & comfy & full of interesting items, just like the rest of the inn. Thanks for the pancake recipe, & we hope to come back one day!

Spacious room with a fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, quality shampoo & conditioner. Very friendly owners, fantastic breakfast. That's why I'm giving it 2 stars instead of negative 7. It's run down, in dire need of cleaning and repairs throughout. I don't care much about the outside, but our room was gross. Only one window had a screen so we... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Inn. We are glad you enjoyed breakfast and our hospitality, but are sorry your overall stay was less than what you and we hoped it would be. There is central air at the Inn, and it does appear to have worked for our other guests staying during your visit. We appreciate... More

We called the Stuart Avenue Inn home for 4 years, every time we visited our daughter at Kalamazoo College. Chris and Dana are fabulous hosts, the breakfasts are gourmet, and the inn and huge yard are beautiful. Make your reservation today!

What a great B&B. Chris and Dana took good care of us. A beautiful B&B and huge landscaped yard with gazebo, flowers, etc. Historic old home. We stayed in the Alta room and couldn't have asked for a better experience. They had good recommendations of local places to visit (restaurants,, tourist attractions, etc.) and served an excellent assortment of goodies... More

This beautiful BnB adjacent to Kalamazoo College and Western MI U is the perfect place to rest up for a college visit or a trip to Kalamazoo. We have stayed here several times over the past few years and always enjoy our stay. Dana and Chris are excellent hosts! The breakfasts are fantastic and the accommodations leave nothing to be...

Gorgeous home, gracious hosts, delicious breakfast! Came to town for a concert at Bell's Brewery (very close by) and our stay here made it a fabulous weekend. The grounds and gardens are spectacular! We can't wait to come back!

My daughter and I stayed here last weekend while visiting Kalamazoo College. We loved the friendliness of Dana and Chris, the spacious room (we were in number 10 on the top floor), and the proximity to K college. The breakfasts were incredibly delicious: eggs, roast beef hash, homemade yogurt with toppings, and coffee cake the first morning and lemon ricotta... More
