Debi and Greg have created the most wonderful B&B at The Lewis House, and they're the consummate hosts. They've completely remodeled this stately mansion in a gorgeous way, and don't mind sharing their experiences with guests. The home, the gardens, the carriage house, and the views all add up to a first class experience in every way. It sounds trite, but they've truly thought of everything. Our room - The Lake Room - was immense and has an incredible bathroom. Breakfast was absolutely unbelievable, especially considering that they worked with a Vegan and a Gluten Free guest. They were able to harvest fabulous things from their garden and incorporate them into an imaginative meal that everyone loved. And there was one last lovely touch: upon leaving Debi and Greg presented us with a small brown paper bag with a very nice hand written note. The bag was filled with O.M.G. delicious home made caramel corn. A perfect ending to an otherwise perfect weekend at The Lewis House. Well Done, and Thank You Debi and Greg!
We were looking for a B&B in the Whitehall/Montague area as we planned to take our bikes on the Montague/Hart Rail Trail. As a chocolate-lover, the name caught my attention! What a lovely surprise to find a beautifully restored Arts & Crafts cottage with WONDERFUL food! Both Larry & Lisa were very welcoming and so hospitable. After getting soaked in a rain storm, Larry took all of our wet things and made sure they were dried out for us to ride again the next day. Also, after commented that I'd been looking for a chair like one they have in the living room, Larry researched the maker of the chair, and found shops in our area that may carry this chair. That's going above & beyond. Hope to go back.
This B&B is an ultimate experience for the B&B aficionado. If a first-timer to B&B's, it will hook you in nothing flat. Comfortable rooms, chocolate, good coffee, and a delicious gourmet breakfast, will make your stay one to remember. The Innkeepers, Larry and Lisa, cannot be outdone. My husband and I have stayed nearly ten times at the Cocoa Cottage and highly recommend it.
This was our anniversary getaway and this B&B exceeded our expectations. The owners, Lisa an Larry were gracious, the food was delicious and the rooms were fantastic. Every detail was carefully planned and we loved our visit. We will definitely return!
Well cared for Bed and Breakfast. Chocolate and port in your room. Breakfast was wonderful including fudge sauce to spread on bread and/or strawberries. The hot chocolate was absolutely the BEST I have ever tasted. Thank you Lisa and Larry!!
My wife and I stayed at the Lewis House for three nights. It was by far the best B&B experience we've ever had. Debi and Greg (owners) have done a truly amazing job restoring this exceptional property. The attention to detail in every aspect from the property to their hands-on care is incredible. Debi's full breakfast each morning is as nice as any top-rated restaurant. Mostly importantly, Debi and Greg are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Their passion, dedication and taste came through to make our time there truly memorable. I couldn't recommend The Lewis House more highly.
We've stayed at Cocoa Cottage several times, and it is always enjoyable. The breakfasts have always been delicious and the house is beautiful and comfortable. Larry and Lisa make you feel welcome, it is like staying with old friends. Our stay last month was no exception, we left Whitehall feeling refreshed and relaxed!
My husband & I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Cocoa Cottage. It was very, very relaxing! The food was amazing. It was very clean & comfortable. Larry & Lisa were wonderful hosts. I would highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast.
Long weekend with friends - this was a great spot to stay. Renovated 1912 home that was very comfortable and clean. Reserve early for bigger rooms, but even the smaller rooms are great. Larry and Lisa are great hosts with a wealth of area knowledge. And Larry puts on a great breakfast. We are already planning a return trip.
My stay was fun and full of interesting conversations with the host and hostess. Very interesting couple. The rooms were very unique, who doesn't like chocolate. In walking distance to town and restaurants. I recommend this B&B.
Tremendous experience at the Lewis House. The corner room was quiet and private, the property immaculately well kept, and breakfast felt like a 5 star dining experience. Debi and Greg (hosts) were friendly, accommodating, and very knowledgeable of the area. We enjoyed our time very much, and will most certainly be back in the future. I strongly recommend this B&B!
Wonderful, peaceful and inviting pace to stay. If you are a chocolate lover, this Bed & Breakfast is the place for you. Delicious breakfast each day along with gracious hosts. Walking distance to the downtown area and a short drive to the beach.
My husband and I have enjoyed Larry & Lisa's warm hospitality in their beautiful Inn on four separate occasions. Each time we visit, it is like "Coming Home", only with unique and exquisite cuisine and lots of pampering. Being so close to beautiful Lake Michigan affords us the opportunity to enjoy the extra benefit of a lakeshore community and its special atmosphere. We look forward to many return visits.
Wonderful experience! The B&B was beautiful and in excellent condition. The food was exceptional and we looked forward to each meal. The owners were welcoming, approachable and delightful to talk with. We look forward to staying there again in the near future.
Lisa and Larry who own the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast are simply fantastic! They can optimize the breakfast to meet our gluten and casein free needs in savory delectable style and fantastic presentation. The Inn is close to the local bike trail and towns and beaches. Lisa happily ordered a fantastic flower arrangement so I could surprise my bride of 31 years...plus they lasted for two whole weeks after we left. Larry and Lisa are all about a quality, comfortable B&B experience. I highly recommend Cocoa Cottage!
We found this place at the last minute, due to another reservation falling through. What a stroke of luck that was! Cocoa Cottage B&B is a wonderful place to stay, with excellent service, comfortable beds, and a homey but very elegant atmosphere. Everything was very clean, and the food was delicious. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Of course, the food was outstanding. It was the reason we chose this place in the beginning. But everything met and exceeded expectation. It's an adorable place to stay. It's very well maintained. And there are tiny touches that make the stay even more enjoyable. The hosts are so nice and helpful. We would recommend to anybody.
We had a fantastic time at the Cocoa Cottage with Lisa and Larry. The breakfasts were exceptional and the restored home was beautiful. We are on the younger end and were celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary. We would recommend this to anyone who has not tried out a bed and breakfast before--it would be a great first experience.
We found Cocoa Cottage to be exceptional in every sense. The owners were a perfect balance of professional and friendly. They didn't make us feel that we needed to chat, but when we engaged them they were friendly and kind. Our room was awesome! Our mattress was new and wonderful! The furnishings were great! We stayed in the Ghirardelli suite and we had and AMAZING bathroom! The tub was HUGE! The location is perfect. Situated in downtown Whitehall, we easily could walk to any dining establishments, or downtown shopping. The walking/biking trail was easily accessible. Lake Michigan was nearby, a short drive away. The service was excellent. We had turn down service both nights. Both nights we had port and chocolate waiting for us for a "nightcap". We also had hand written notes (one from Larry and one from Lisa) on our pillow next to some of Larry's hand-dipped chocolates. The food was amazing. My husband loved everything that he was served. What made it even more amazing is that I have multiple food allergies. I am very VERY hard to cook for and when I made the reservation I was fairly embarrassed and I told them I could easily bring my own food because I know how difficult it is to find something I could eat. They reassured me that they could easily accommodate my dietary needs, and they did!! It was some of the best food I've had - EVER! They were very gracious, and checked with me to make sure everything was right! One thing that surprised me the most was the environmental awareness. When I asked if I could throw away my water bottle, they said they would recycle it. I saw Lisa go out to the garden to get spices for our food. Everything was as organic as they could make it, right down to growing their own blackberries, or buying meat locally for our sausage patties. This was an unexpected delightful bonus.
My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Cocoa Cottage and thoroughly loved the experience. The house is beautifully renovated and decorated, and Larry and Lisa were so kind. There are several other B&B's on the same street but it is a quiet area, We were happy to drive a bit further to the places we wanted to visit rather than staying on the crowded strips in Grand Haven etc. We're already talking about the next trip to Lake Michigan and I'll definitely try to book a room at Cocoa Cottage again. There are only 4 guest rooms, so I recommend booking early to get the room you want (they're all slightly different).. Thanks again to the owners for a wonderful stay!
