We stayed at this beautiful farm house, impeccably maintained, with large comfortable rooms. Breakfasts were a delight and Alice had no difficulty creating wonderful meals to meet the special dietary needs of guests. Her recommendations for restaurants, wineries and other enjoyments were honest and open. Upon returning to the house (which quickly became home) one would find some flavored water... More

I love it here. It is maybe the coziest place you could possibly find. It is so very well maintained and has such a peaceful, warm and friendly feel right from stepping through the front door. Alice will prepare you breakfasts beyond compare and make you feel special and cared for. She's great to chat with as well! The surrounding... More

Other reviews state the pros of this excellent B&B--scrumptious breakfasts, gracious host, large room (Jane), quiet and comfortable, convenient location (to Leland, Sutton's Bay, Glen Arbor, wineries), beautiful old home and setting, NO television, free wifi, and friendly cats! My only issue is the water. It has the smell and taste of being high in sulfur, and it is very... More

My husband & I just had the pleasure of staying at this charming, beautiful house for a getaway. We stayed in the "Jane" room and were quite surprised with how large it is. Room for a high top table & chairs, and a leather sofa. It was very comfortable, and we slept great in the bed. Alice, the owner is... More

Oh you must stay here! We were warmly greeted by our Hostess, Alice, who is an amazing and very cool lady! Ask her anything about the area and she has the answers.

And she has this deep desire to make the most wonderfully delicious and beautiful breakfasts you can imagine.

Slow down, as you will probably pass the driveway your first time there. The home is on the highway; but, tucked behind a fence, hedges and flowers. A stately home with an expansive front porch with inviting chairs and settees. Alice, owner and proprietor, will likely be waiting for you as she irons linens on the front porch! Alice has... More
