The kind of place where contemplating staying forever immediately comes to mind, and pleasantly lingers. An absolutely gorgeous and clean B&B. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. We arrived late in the evening to find mouthwatering homemade cake waiting for us. The unspoiled rural setting...More

Beautifully situated. Quiet, immaculate, scenic, friendly and well managed. Will be back again next year. Brenda and Bill do it right. Location is perfect for proximity to Grand Rapids. Lowell is a nice little town with good eating spots (Flat River Grill is the best)

We are a NEW family owned bed and breakfast situated on over 100 acres of mature spruce and pine forest, tall prairie grass, numerous trails and nearly one mile of private frontage on the Flat River. Our 1880’s More farmhouse has been tastefully restored, and offers a close up,gorgeous view of the river. A very peaceful and relaxing setting. We have three bedrooms available for you or your party. There is one on the main floor (master bedroom), and two upstairs. Each bedroom has its own special view of the property, and that “nostalgic feel” one would expect in a home built in its time period.We believe the uniqueness of our property makes our home far more than just a place to stay, rather, a destination point for a couple (or couples) looking for an affordable weekend getaway.
