My wife and I are from Berlin, Germany. We stayed in Chestnut Bed & Breakfast for one week after one week in Chicago. This is a perfect combination of visiting a fantastic city and the relaxing country side living. Winona Lake is 2 minutes away.
Lovely and detailed interior in the house. Very warm atmosphere, you feel home immediately – perfect.
Nice wood swinger on the veranda with candlelight on the table at the evening.
Breakfast at one big table in a dining room which helps to communicate with other guests (but you may have breakfast in your room, too, if you want – no pressure, just relax!).
Pull off your shoes when entering the house but don´t be afraid –single use house shoes offered for free.
We booked the Chestnut apartment. Huge room with big space for your stuff (not usual in the States). Kitchen with microwave, refridgerator, dishwasher. Ironing device and adjustable air conditioning (of course). Big bathroom with jacuzzi and shower.
But the most important is Machelle and her husband. She is so friendly and offers so much hospitality that we decided to come back. There is no doubt about it.
She makes everything possible. Her cooking has been great (I loved her French toasts). But you may get fresh fruits the same way as omelette. Not comparable to the junk food offered in many hotels for breakfast.
The room has been cleaned every day and the house is perfectly cleaned, too.
We have to recommend the “Chestnut” from the deep of our heart and we would like to say thank you to Machelle and her family to make our trip to the USA unforgettable.
