“Perfect!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We've been going to Castle in the Country for out getaway's for about 7 years and we have never been disappointed! The service and quality is always excellent! The rooms are beautiful and clean and we love the common areas and always feel at home. The outdoor spaces are lovely as well and we love taking advantage of the beautiful trails and kayaking on the lake. The location is so ideal, out in the middle of nowhere but still just a 30 minute drive to some great eats! The breakfasts are divine!
We always look forward to our stays!

We had a wonderful weekend stay in the Romeo and Juliet room at the Castle Keep. Everything was exceptional, from the beautiful property and the different themed and decorated rooms, to the great breakfast. Very relaxing and peaceful, just what we needed!

This place was great. My wife had surprised me with a trip. When we arrived, there was nice music playing and very friendly staff to greet us. We had a package that included dinner and a massage and breakfasts. Right away they set up dinner reservations for us at a restaurant of our choice for the next day, and set up times for our massage and explained everything. The Room was awesome! We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet Suite, and it had a two person hot tub and a fireplace and a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was incredible. The first day we ate in the dining room and the last day they brought us breakfast to our room. We also got a picnic basket for lunch, and walked down to the lake. It was very relaxing, and it is highly recommended!

This was the absolute most perfect place for a getaway for couples! The rooms are all so unique. I have never been a fan of bed and breakfast's but this completely blew my mind and I highly recommend it to friends and family! Food was amazing, service was incredible, and everything was so clean and comfortable!

First of all, browse their website, look at the pictures, read the testimonials, etc. After you do all that, make your reservations--don't wait !!!! You are worth it !!! The hardest decision is which room do you pick??!!! But don't wait too long, or the decision will be made for you when rooms get booked, although, I don't think there's a bad room there !!! We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet and had a peak at the Lady Guinevere. Both rooms were beautiful !!! We would have loved to peak in some of the others, but they were occupied. The bed was very comfortable. The sheets so soft. Robes were provided and were comfortable for my queen size. The whirlpool in the room was wonderful !!!
From your arrival, you know that this is not your average place. This was our 1st B&B in the states, and we felt like royalty (or a dear family member). All of the amenities were explained thoroughly. Recommendations were made for dinner along with having menus available to look at. Ruth made reservations for us for dinner.
We booked the Royal Treatment package which included one night's dinner, a couples massage, a picnic lunch and a gift bag waiting on our arrival. Our dinner was at the Salt of the Earth in Fennville, which was absolutely delicious !!! The couple's massage was heavenly, thank you Pam and Kathy. My first professional massage (and NOT my last) and it was relaxing and rejuvenating. They are very discreet and made us feel at ease immediately. We had our picnic lunch after that, and it was wonderful. A nice bottle of local wine, bread, jellies, cheeses, sausages, crackers, apple, orange, chocolate covered strawberries, chips. We couldn't even eat it all and it was so nice. We threw the afghan from the bed on the floor and enjoyed a movie while we relaxed and ate. I'm sure during the summer, it would be SO nice to enjoy outside!!! Our gift bag included 2 nice wine glasses, chocolates from a local place and a nice CD.
So there's some of it, but that does not include all the little extras that Ruth and her family provide. The whole Castle is very welcoming, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It feels like a home away from home. The delicious breakfasts that start your day...scrumptious does not even cover it. The coffee/tea bar that is always available with such a nice variety of items. The soda/water that is available for purchase in the kitchen area. The chocolate chip cookies that are always available are delicious and a very nice treat to share with your loved one. The popcorn that you can pop for movie watching or snacking. DVD's available to enjoy. Books available to enjoy. Some nice items in the gift shops by local artisans. The relaxing music that is playing throughout the inn. There's a gazebo outside. There's a patio with the fire pit outside. I am sure the grounds are beautiful during the spring/summer/fall.
This is a place that we will return to for a special occasion or just because. How often do you do this for yourself....just make the reservation!!! You and your spouse are worth it !!!!!

Room Tip: We were in the Castle Keep building in the back. The Castle is right on the road, but it doesn'...

The Castle in the Country is a perfect get-a-way for couples. We had a wonderful two-night stay - just wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed in the Camelot Suite and it was perfect. The room was clean, the bathroom was gorgeous, and the innkeepers have thought of every little detail. The Castle in the Country is in a perfect location - a quick drive to Holland, Saugatuck, Grand Rapids, or Kalamazoo. We highly recommend Salt of the Earth and The Grill House for dinner options. Ruth and her staff were wonderful hosts, helpful and kind. We can't wait to go back in the summer! The breakfast was delicious and the breakfast room has a wonderful view of the pond. We loved the coffee/tea options!

Room Tip: We highly recommend the Camelot Suite if you are looking for more of a modern room. It was recently...

The overall experience was great. The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean and lovely.

The only drawbacks for me were that there was not a fridge in the room, just a small communal fridge in the public area so I had to walk down 3 flights of stairs to get my drink which was no longer there. I'm sure it was just a mistake. They sell cans of pop and bottled water out of that fridge so I'm sure someone didn't realize that they took my personal drinks.

The breakfast was very good but not great. The dining room is lovely and it's not the typical buffet but a plated meal, which I like. They served OJ, coffee, fresh fruit cup, maple scone, bacon and an egg souffle with hollandaise sauce. My only complaints about the breakfast was that the scone, though it was tasty, was a little too hard and the bacon was almost inedible. I like crunchy bacon but this was nearly petrified. The egg souffle was wonderful and the chopped fresh fruit was nice. I'm sure my husband would have left hungry though because they are rather small portions.

I recommend the pub pie dinner. They pack it all in a picnic basket for you that can be enjoyed anywhere. I had the chicken with white wine sauce. It was delicious with a very subtle wine flavor and a puff pastry crust. It comes with homemade bread, 3 different kinds of cheesecake and a salad.

I will definately return but I think I will go when it's warmer outside so I can enjoy the lake and walking trails.

Dear Guest,
There's nothing more rewarding for us to hear than that our guests' overall experience was great! We really appreciate your feedback regarding the common area refrigerator and we'll do our best to encourage guests to mark their personal items with the post it notes we provide so that other guests don't mistake them for the beverages we provide.
We change our menu frequently for breakfast and we do offer a different baked good each day along with fresh fruit and the main entree. We often offer a sweet or red potato hash along with the egg dish and we do try to modify the breakfast serving size and the taste preferences of our guests whenever possible. We generally chat with guests about their preferences for breakfast during Check-in so we'll look forward to your return visit and will do our best to make it another great experience at the Castle in the Country Kingdom.
