First let me begin by saying that anyone who cannot read the clearly written documents online, and in each room should just go to a normal hotel.
Nate and Mary and their Innkeeper are TOP Notch, this is a B & B, NOT a hotel! I found this WONDERFUL place 4 years ago, and will continue to come because of the incredible people, and property. This is a small business, 4 rooms in the main building, and a small cottage with 4 bedrooms. 2 rooms in the main building face the Orchard, small out building, amazing groomed lawn, and parking area. You can gain entry from either room via a private stairway, or from inside. 2 other rooms have an amazing lake view, and of the cottage and well groomed lawn. The cottage also has lake view, great kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 fridges, and multiple entrances with view a backyard view. The entire property is always groomed, and they have honor system. If you need ANYTHING you only need to call, if they are away from their phone, they call back. They text as well!
We always do late checkin, because we are at Road America about 20 minutes away, and often hang there for a bit before driving to the B&B. Late checkin is clearly indicated as to the procedures online, and all you need to do is email them to let them know you will be using the late checkin method, (THEY always email back).
If you do not know how to use a keurig, learn before you come. Coffee is self serve, 24/7 and restocked all the time. There is a pitcher on the cart for water, that is located behind the bar. Everything is there for everyone, all the time. If you want new towels, shampoo, or anything else just call them.
They do live on property, directly next door, and yes they are out doing work daily. Walk around the property, see what all they have and offer, it is truly a beautiful area.
My enjoyment is that it is a quite peaceful place, they do not hound you, they are there every morning and between 3-5 p.m. on checkin days. The food is great, it is always a wonderful surprise, and more than enough food for the normal person. There is a fridge in each room, so you can keep what you need to. Every aspect of this property is clean, fresh, amazing, and kept in order all the time.
If you love some peaceful, romantic laid back place, with no one hovering over you...this place is for you. If you are a constant needy person that can't do for yourself, then maybe consider a normal hotel.
We will stay here every year for as long as they are accepting quests, Mary and Nate are 2 amazing people, with loving family, and a great InnKeeper! I HIGHLY recommend Lake Orchard B & B!!!!
