Best B&Bs for a romantic getaway in Michigan
A lot is riding on your choice of where to go for a romantic getaway in Michigan. You want it to go well. In fact, you need it to be nothing short of perfect.
Use our checklist below to plot your escape. A reason to consider the #MichBnB inns on this page is that each offers a slightly different take on the experience of a romantic getaway in Michigan.
First thing to consider is the occasion.
Are you celebrating? (Congrats.)
Are you making up to your beloved after a mistake or a fight? (Good move.)
Are you coping with one of life’s sad or stressful events? (Very thoughtful.)
Or is it just because you love each other so much? (Go to the head of the class.)
What’s high on your loved one’s checklist for a romantic getaway in Michigan?
Privacy? Ask the innkeeper what’s on the other side of the wall of your prospective room.
Fireplace? Many B&B rooms feature all-season, remote-control fireplaces whose heat output you can adjust. All over the state, you can find B&Bs with fireplaces in all or most rooms, including:
- Hotel Saugatuck, Kalamazoo House and Prairieside Suites in Southwest Michigan
- Torch Lake B&B overlooking Torch Lake in Northwest Michigan
- Huron House B&B in Oscoda
- A Dove Nest B&B in Kingston, secluded in the heart of the Thumb.
Whirlpool tub? If it matters to you, check to see if accommodates two people, whether bath salts are provided or allowed, and whether hours of use are restricted (because jetted tubs can be noisy). Does the room have robes? Outdoor hot tubs at B&Bs are fewer in number these days, but one place you can find private hot tubs is the Huron House in Oscoda.
B&Bs with whirlpool tubs in every room include: Painted Turtle Inn, St. Joseph; Hotel Saugatuck B&B, Saugatuck; Prairieside Suites B&B, Grandville; A Dove Nest B&B, Kingston, and Cobblestone Manor Luxury Historic Inn in Auburn Hills.
Romantic extras? On request, many innkeepers will arrange for such niceties as a dozen roses in a vase, therapeutic massage or other spa services, in-room breakfast, special desserts, or even a path strewn with silk rose petals.
Area activities? Whether you enjoy biking or beer tasting, casinos or culture, woods or waterfront, city life or the middle of nowhere, you’re sure to find a B&B whose setting matches your expectations for a romantic getaway in Michigan. Discover your ideal bed and breakfast here.
