We thoroughly enjoyed this quaint bed and breakfast that is all about chocolate! We stayed in The Hershey Room and loved the chocolates in our room and the king size bed. This house is so beautiful and Larry made us feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door. Larry also served us a gourmet breakfast that...

My wife and I work hard and knew we needed to get away and just relax. We had three days and a limited budget to go to a B&B on the shores of Lake Michigan. We looked at B&B's from Petoskey down to Grand Haven and chose the Cocoa Cottage B&B in Whitehall. This was the most comfortable, relaxing place...

This B&B was highly recommended by family during our trip to Michigan. Lisa and Larry are the quintisential hosts. Larrys' breakfasts are exceptional. Conversations with our hosts and guests during breakfast were delightful. We immediately felt comfortable within the home. Look forward to another visit.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast. From the moment I spoke to Lisa and made our reservation I knew they were going to take good care of us. Larry was so kind and accommodating to our late arrival and gave us a warm and welcoming tour. Upon our return from dinner we were pleasantly...

We spent our 10 year anniversary at the Cocoa Cottage. We stayed in their Hershey room and it was very cozy and was very cute. The innkeepers really have an eye for detail. They had little "extras" from water offered in a fridge outside of the rooms, to handwritten notes, and their logo on niceties in the bathroom (things you...

Knowing that Cocoa Cottage had an excellent rating created VERY high expectations for us. And Larry wasted no time not only meeting, but exceeding them! We were greeted warmly and immediately shown into the cozy well appointed dining room to fresh baked chocolate cheesecake with fresh strawberries and wine! Our room - the Godiva - was beautiful, elegant and comfortable....

Cocoa Cottage is like no place I've ever been before. The setting is a faithfully restored Arts & Crafts style house just a couple of blocks from downtown Whitehall, Michigan. Even as you walk up the steps to the main entry, a sense of calm embraces you. As you step over the threshold, you are immersed in cozy comfort. Then...

My husband and I decided to stay here for our 5th anniversary; we could not have picked a more perfect place to stay! Everything about our visit was extraordinary, and far exceeded every experience I've had at other B&B's I've ever been to - and that includes the ones in Saugatuck. Don't get me wrong, the other B&B's are good...

The impeccably restored Arts and Crafts bungalow is a study project in itself - lots of history here. We were able to have breakfast outside both days due to excellent weather which made the outstanding food even more enjoyable and relaxing. Innkeepers Larry and Lisa accommodated our late arrival via the Badger ferry and also helped us with places to...

We've returned to the beautiful Cocoa Cottage nearly ten times and have always had the same all-around high quality visit. The gourmet breakfast is creative and delicious every time. The service is impeccable.
