  • We came to Kalamazoo for the weekend. Stayed here on a Saturday. Was expecting something quaint and eclectic. Our room was interesting. We stayed in the “Tibetan” room. The bed was very squeaky. The m...  more »
  • We had a large group for the shower, held indoors as weather was very warm. Lovely location, a beautiful vintage victorian home on the crest of a hill. Late summer time and many blooming flowers added...  more »
  • We did an overnight stop over as part of a longer journey and were expecting an quality eclectic experience. In the end it was bordering on a dodgy hotel with disillusions of grandeur. The room was po...  more »

  • This place is terrible. The food was sub par and over priced. We had the Tibet room which had the worst bed I've ever slept in. My wife and I didn't sleep at all. All the windows are glued shut so we couldn't open them to cool off since the little AC unit barely kept the room cool. I advise anything else to stay at since it would be an upgrade over this place. The only good thing about this place was the grounds were nicely decorated and maintained.
  • If you're willing to spend the money once a year or so, it will be worth your money. The food is amazing, and the rooms all have their interesting characteristics. It's a little strange and completely worth it.
  • It is a beautiful home, and we had a great tour. The people who work there were a great help also. The tour was well worth it.
  • Beautiful old house. Toured it with Girl Scouts and our tour guide was amazing with the little girls! The Princess and Prince tea party was so fun.
  • We had a terrible experience! For the price we were expecting to eat and sleep well. However, the bed was the least comfortable I've ever encountered. Neither my husband nor I could sleep at all. They took an ancient mattress and put a foam pad on it, but this didn't​ improve the situation. Our feet were angled well above our heads. We made reservations for both dinner and breakfast expecting delicious French fare. Nope! The baked brie appetizer was under cooked and the puff pastry tasted like freezer burn. The "tomato bisque" was just hot milk - no flavor at all. None of dinner was worth the $150 price tag. Breakfast was no better. We received a too sweet shot glass of yogurt they had the nerve to call a parfait, a soggy underbaked tiny little croissant, fruit cup with mealy melon and improperly cut pineapple, and a burned slop of an omelette with raw vegetables inside. Who does the proprietor think he's fooling here? No one would ever come back for a second stay. In the breakfast room the next morning, we overhead one woman send her breakfast back and tell the waitress not to bother trying to fix it - she was done! Another couple had arranged for breakfast in bed but ended up coming downstairs to eat because it never arrived and there was no staff to help. They were also whispering about not being able to sleep. I had to apologize to my husband for this one. I wish I had read more reviews before booking. The next night we stayed at a chain hotel for half the price and had a much better experience!
