Wonderful hosts, and the thought and care they have put into the restoration of this mansion is impressive. Best breakfast I've had at a B&B. Highly recommended. Also, Manistee is a delightful town, and walking friendly.More

When we prepared to venture into the opening of a Bed and Breakfast, we made up our minds about our essential priorities: to provide the most storybook-like experience, to serve a breakfast meal unobtainable in any commercial kitchen, and to make this happen in an...More
