“Fans of Kingsley House Experience”
Reviewed August 27, 2007

We have stayed at the Kingsley House Bed and Breakfast Inn two times now--once in Sept 2005 and just again in Aug 2007. I knew we would have an enjoyable time again since it was so positive the first time. Dave prides himself on trying to give his guests a positive experience with as many homey extras as most bed and breakfast enthusiasts expect.

We have always found the food very good. Homemade cookies were plentiful and memorable; and the breakfast of meat, egg dish, pastry, and fresh fruit is enjoyable--always served buffet style with fresh flowers. And the wicker table/chairs where you eat (in good weather) on the most fantasticly restful HUGE front wraparound porch is our personal favorite! The well cared for flower gardens and hanging planters create an even better ambiance. A hammock and a swing-for-two are restful areas in the large yard that is fairly shielded from the quiet country main street by large trees. Parking is off street and has never been a problem for us.

The thoughtfulness of complimentary use of wine glasses, cheese servers, free soft drinks and bottled water in a mini-fridge, silverware, paperplates and napkins for bedroom snacks, brochures of the area highlights, magazines, books, music, and movies, not to mention the special packages you could add to your stay experience like massages, picnic or wine & cheese or chocolates , etc. speak of a host that wants his guests to enjoy themselves. Extras such as boardgames, beach towels, and umbrellas make you feel like you want to stay long enough to use them at your leisure.

The beautiful house itself is decorated with detail , clean, inviting and interesting in the history of the original owners displayed on the beautiful stairway landing under the multicolored stainedglass window. Since this is an authentic nineteenth century home we were not surprised that every room did not have a large tub/jacuzzi. Our first stay was in the suite at back first floor with couch, chair, fireplace, large TV , jacuzzi/shower etc.--very roomy and comfortable. The latest stay was in a smaller room decorated in blue and white on the second floor . The bathroom was shower only but there seemed enough room for the average person. As another person commented in these reviews This is a Bed and Breakfast in an old historic single family home--NOT A CHAIN RESORT!!

Dave has always been gracious--even when we forgot about the time zone change for a late arrival!! We very much enjoy ourselves at the Kingsley House and always wish we could stay longer and more often.

What a wonderful place! The house is beautifully decorated. The breakfasts exceeded my expectations! The rooms are clean, quiet, and secure. There is a bottomless cookie jar, jelly bellies, coffee, and soft drinks 24/7. This is a can't miss. Don't hesitate...book it.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. All of the innkeepers were hospitable and very accomodating. The breakfast was amazing- probably the best we have had! We received this stay from our parents as an anniversary present, and we will definitely return!

My wife and I have been visiting Saugatuck/Fennville/Douglas for almost 20 years now and we always try to stay somewhere new. Admittedly, we are not as picky as other visitors may be, but we also are not afraid to speak out if something is not up to par.
No worries at the Kinsley House! Everything was absolutely wonderful. The place was gorgeous, close to everything and they really went out of their way to make sure we felt comfortable and relaxed. The breaksfasts were delicious and hot (some places in the past seemed to have difficulty keeping the food hot over the course of the breakfast time). Dave was so accomodating that a few weeks after we returned home we emailed him and asked for a couple recipes of the food he had served and he shared his kitchen magic with us!
The staff was very helpful in suggesting new places to explore that we had not discovered yet in our many, many visits to the area.
We had the room at the top of the turret and it was gorgeous! Very romantic and comfortable. We also enjoyed the romantic picnic the Inn offers as an extra attraction and the food was bountiful and delicious. We wouldn't recommend this room however for any guests that are exceptionally large because the stairway is extremely narrow and could be difficult if not impossible to traverse.
Overall, we couldn't think of one thing that could have been improved upon. Thanks so much for a memorable respite from the stresses of everyday life!

The Kingsley House is a beautiful place to stay, and Dave does a great job of making his guests feel pampered. The rooms all have a beautiful decor, as well as the rest of the house. We also enjoyed the immense front porch that has plenty of chairs and tables to enjoy your morning coffee if you like. It also has a nice porch swing to relax on.
My husband and I thought the breakfast was delicious, especially the quiche. It was nice to be able to help ourselves to coffee, green tea, pop, etc. whenever we wanted. There was also an extensive collection of DVDs that we were welcome to view in the privacy of our room. This is one place that we would recommend to all of our friends.

We highly recommend this Inn.

It was the perfect romantic and secluded room we were looking for. If you want a completely secluded weekend, the Cider Nook is the room to book. We felt like we were the only two people at the Inn. Since we stayed 3 nights, we also had breakfast delivered to our room each morning. We never saw another guest the whole 3 days even though the house was full! The video library, the hot coffee/tea bar, the fresh baked goods, the breakfast in bed, and the fluffy bathrobes is where this Inn went above and beyond compared to other Inns we have stayed.

P.S. The breakfast each morning was delicious!

Thank you Dave!
