The Kalamazoo House B&B is definitely a great place today. The staff are wonderful & the rooms are great. Breakfast was amazing & gotta love the chocolate chip cookies at night too! We will be back!
This is our third stay at Kara's Kottages. We have been in a different room each time and I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite. Kara has thought of everything to make her guests comfortable. The unit is cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. From the plush robes to the comfy mattress, we felt right at home from the minute we walked in. Looking forward to many more visits.
Stayed here with my husband for a weekend getaway. Quiet, friendly, clean, delicious breakfasts, yummy cookies, so many little touches that were really nice. Keurig available to make tea or coffee at your disposal, Roku in rooms, so close to downtown. My husband was pleasantly surprised with our stay. Great place! We would highly recommend this B&B!
We had a work retreat in Kalamazoo and opted for a bed and breakfast instead of the typical hotel rooms. It turned out to be an amazing decision! We booked all the rooms at the West Main location and a couple on Kalamazoo Avenue. Since we had the whole building on Main, we spent quite a bit of time hanging out and cooking together there. We also used the amazing patio with a fire pit to enjoy the weather before the snow came. The kottages were clean, beautifully decorated and stocked for breakfast as described online. Kara was awesome, she answered all our questions, checked in on us and made sure everything was the way it was supposed to be. If I'm in Kalamazoo in the future, I will definitely be staying at Kara's Kottages again!
Five of us booked Driftwood and Birchbark for a girls getaway in late October. Both accommodations were everything we could have wanted - beautifully appointed, amazingly comfortable beds, cozy linens, great living room/seating areas and a well stocked kitchens. The availability of healthy breakfast options in the fridge was wonderful - cinnamon buns to bake, eggs, kefir, granola and all the basics! We enjoyed gathering in the living rooms after cooking dinner and unwinding from our workshops during the day. The train tracks are right behind the house, making for a startling first experience when the horns and bells are blowing at night,but that only happened twice the first evening we were there, and only once while we were sleeping, so it wasn't really a problem. We would definitely book Kara's again!
We went to Kalamazoo for WMU's homecoming and we were so pleased to be able to stay at The Kalamazoo House. The owners are very organized and accommodating. I knew everything I needed to know before I arrived... very clear instructions on all the details. House is fantastic and rooms have everything you need. We loved it and would definitely go back!
My husband and I just happened upon a review of this charming B&B. We are so glad we stayed here! Everything was perfect. The room was beautiful and our made to order gourmet breakfast was outstanding. The Kalamazoo House is obviously a labor of love for all who work there. Highly recommend, we can hardly wait to return!
My husband and I stayed here 2 nights and fell in love with it! The kottage is beautiful, clean, and very comfortable! The bathroom is definitely the best part, the large soaking tub and shower make you never want to leave. The bed was very comfortable and the living space makes you feel right at home. We would highly recommend anyone in the Kalamazoo area to check out this bed and breakfast!
We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the Kalamazoo House B&B from the friendly staff to the fabulous accommodations and the wonderful breakfast. This was my first time at a B&B and I was blown away. I would prefer this experience over a hotel any day.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Kalamazoo House. There were four breakfast choices, and it was difficult to make a selection. Steve was very attentive to all of our needs. We would highly recommend this beautiful B&B.
We had a good stay at Karas Kottages. The location was great and close to everything we needed. The only negative (which isnt her fault) is that the walls/floors don't block any sound and so we could hear the people above us walking around, which was a bit annoying and we could hear the train go by regularly. Other than that, great place!
The Kalamazoo House was reasonably priced and had outstanding amenities. From the ultra soft sheets to the soaker tub to the cookies and milk at bedtime, the innkeepers made this an outstanding experience. It is also walking distance from many wonderful downtown eateries.
We were really pleased with most everything about our room . The shower needs redone ( floor is a bit spongy). It was close to the brewery's we were visiting and in such a nice neighborhood. It had lots of eating and snacking options . We would definitely stay again.
We stayed in the Douglas Fir Kottage above Kara's actual house and it was a great stay! The whole place is super clean and very comfortable. The decor is gorgeous and very romantic. It was also walking distance to a great Indian food place and only a little over a mile from downtown so that was walkable as well! It was a perfect place for a two night stay in Kalamazoo.
We rented all of the Kottages for the weekend of our daughter's wedding. Our immediate family stayed there along with the bridesmaids and their spouses. To say it was an amazing place in just not enough!! Both the inside and outside areas are so welcoming and homey. It was a great place for everyone to gather and relax. The breakfast selection was so much larger than we expected - you name it, it was there. Kara was so helpful and accommodating. Perfect place, perfect weekend!! Stay here - you will not be disappointed! Deb K
