My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend here. The owners were quite social and friendly. They serve breakfast each morning and the breakfasts were very delicious along with generous portions. In addition, each evening, finger size, tasty desserts were provided in the foyer area. The only suggestion for improvement would be their email confirmation process. The email only confirms...

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here in 2007 and the owners were very friendly and welcoming. We plan to return for our tenth anniversary in 2017. I really enjoyed walking on the beach collecting shells.

My husband and I decided to spend our 1 year wedding anniversary on Kelley's Island. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here. The breakfast is out of this world and the coffee is amazing. And who doesn't love Sangria in the afternoon? Their kindness and hospitality... More

Beautiful house full of wooden floors, family photos, and just the most welcoming atmosphere! The rooms are all beautiful; we stayed in the honeymoon suite for our 33rd wedding anniversary 7-8 June 2016, and basically had the house to ourselves. Beth served us the most fantastic breakfasts both mornings and always had the coffee ready when we got up! Beth... More

My husband and I stayed here for a little less than a week for our honeymoon, and it was wonderful! We stayed in the Paul Francis room, on the third floor, and had an amazing view of the lake out of all three windows. The day-bed, in particular, had a stunning view, and it was so quiet during our stay... More
