the River Edge Bed and Breakfast was a beautiful place to stay. it was very clean , quiet and managed well. Bill and Brenda made you feel at home. The home brought back memories of my childhood. I could have stayed forever.

My friend Tricia & I planned a few days away from our busy schedules to enjoy some of the beautiful fall weather we were having in Michigan. We had never stayed here before and were looking forward to it. We were not disappointed!! We were on our own to navigate the area, enjoy the beauty of nature and wild life....

Thank you for your kind words Rachel! Fall is the most colorful time of the year at River Edge and it was a pleasure to have you and Tricia stay 2 days with us. We are seeing more and more guests who come just for a getaway, because of our quaint and quiet location that is still only 2 minutes...

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 is just a minute from downtown. The refurbished farmhouse, decorated in beautiful antiques, is just...

Thank you so much for your kind words and for visiting with us! Many of our guests come back again just to enjoy our beautiful location. Many don't expect us to be as close to the river as we are and the expansive view available to enjoy. You are welcome to let us know when you are in the area....

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)

Such a charming little farm house in a serene setting, and by a river no less. Super clean and detailed to perfection. We will certainly be going back. Bill and Brenda make you feel relaxed and welcome. We really enjoyed our stay.

We feel the biggest compliment a guest can give us is when they return to our Bed and Breakfast! Especially for a special day like Valentine's Day. It is always fun to add the little extras for a special visit and we really enjoyed visiting with both of you over morning coffee!

Six high school girlfriends stayed one weekend night and so enjoyed the amenities, the spaciousness and comfort of the River Edge B&B. We hung out, beaded, chatted, ate and drank and then hot-tubbed all our old lady aches and pains away in the wonderful hot tub. So much better than hosting our group at one of our homes-all the comforts...

While there are always challenges during a vacation, not with River Edge Bed and Breakfast! Bill & Brenda go the extra mile making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The fresh Hot breakfast was far better than what I could have had at a hotel for twice the money! We stayed in the Master Bedroom and loved...

We spent the perfect relaxing weekend at River Edge when the colors were peaking. Incredible landscape! Clean, comfortable, and homey house all to ourselves--except, of course, when Brenda appeared with delicious (and gluten-free!) breakfast. This is more than a B&B--it's a comfortable place to hang out all day and just relax. Brenda and Bill are great hosts, the hot tub...

This is a gem of a bed and breakfast. Very good service and cleanliness outstanding. Newer facility and the extra touches were extraordinary. Proprietor Brenda one fan tastic cook. Is reasonable and worth a if in the area. Looking for wedding invitations and backdrop this is your place. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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. ... more   less
