We stayed at Stuart House for two nights in the family suite. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very nice. I can't say enough about breakfast, but that it was fantastic. My vegan daughter was thrilled with the special breakfasts cooked for her too. Chris, Dana and Arlo were kind and accommodating. Thank you for the fun stay.

Pulling into the drive of this B and B, I was disappointed and somewhat wary of spending the night there. Large lot that is overgrown, exterior of the old Victorian needs a lot of work. Seemed like clutter and junk around. The interior is nice however. Owners are personable and helpful. There is a train that runs nearby and you...

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Inn. We regret the fall clean up put you off, but am glad that you enjoyed the rest of your stay. We are fortunate our Inn is rather removed from the train, and forget that we think of it rarely. Thank you for mentioning it.

Chris, Dana, and Arlo the dog made us very welcome. The house is a beautiful restoration-ongoing inn, but not over-decorated so you feel you are in a museum. We stayed in the Cook's Quarters. Comfortable, quiet, comfy bed, good wifi. Bathroom mirror would be low for someone over 5'9." Otherwise room was great. Their restaurant recommendation was spot-on for what...

I was warmly welcomed by hosts Dana and Chris, who insisted on helping me unload the car and carry bags inside. My room---really more of a suite, since it had a large bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom---was lovely and comfortable. This place oozes with atmosphere. There's an inviting common area as well as a dining room, where delicious breakfasts are served....

Thank you for sharing your experiences at the Inn. Chris is as good at toting luggage as he is at the over-easy eggs. So many things to do in Kalamazoo, hope you visit again.

My wife and I stayed at the Stuart Avenue Inn in Kalamazoo, MI and had a very enjoyable experience. The inn is a beautiful, charming 130 year old home from a by-gone era . The proprietors, Chris and Dana, have obviously put great love and care into restoring it to its original beauty. The inn has a homey feel to...

I have nothing but praise for this lovely bed and breakfast. Chris and Dana were incredible hosts - going above and beyond to make our stay an enjoyable one. The food was delicious - I recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes. The rooms were perfect with comfortable beds and cozy nooks for reading.

Loved this historical house! Amazing woodwork and the main floor is fabulous! The breakfast was absolutely delicious!

I loved this bed and breakfast hotel! There was nothing wrong about it. Me and my family stayed for one night. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Kalamazoo.

So glad you gave us the opportunity to show you some Midwest Hospitality and to learn about your travels in the US. May your stay in Chicago be equally pleasant.

Chris and Dana were wonderful hosts. My room was very large and the bed was extra comfortable. I had a small refrigerator, a microwave, and a table from which I could work. The pancakes were so delicious that no syrup should be used. The flavor of the strawberries, blueberries, and the low carb base were perfect. And when you want...
