Margaret P of Grand Rapids has been getting together with a small group of nursing school classmates, now all retired, for the past 20 years. This year, they picked the location — Mount Pleasant, Michigan — not because they knew much about it, but because it was equidistant from their homes. Then they selected a bed and breakfast inn they had never seen and knew nothing about — Country Chalet and Edelweiss House. Not only did they pick it by chance, they picked it knowing the innkeepers were going to be out of town and a substitute inn sitter would be hosting their visit.
Would that be too many unknowns for you? It might be for most people. But as Margaret said, “I took a chance, sight unseen. I’m very happy I did. It was warm and welcoming. Everyone was satisfied.”
Margaret said the group loved everything about the B&B, especially the fresh, tasty breakfasts and lots of coffee, “ready when we asked.”
“Country Chalet/Eidelweiss Haus was a lovely place for us to visit and play silly games and visit the locale. The B&B was perfect for us, warm and inviting.
Sue Kalis of Two Hearts Inn-Sitting, our substitute hostess, prepared great breakfasts and took good care of us. We hope to return next year! The location is quiet and surrounded by beautiful countryside, but the city and restaurants and the Soaring Eagle Casino are easily accessible, as is the Central Michigan University campus. It would be a great place for a family gathering.”
Lake to Lake B&B Association is proud that Country Chalet/Eidelweiss Haus is a quality-inspected member. As are all members of the state B&B Association, the inn adheres to more than 100 standards of quality and best practices. When Margaret and her friends chose Country Chalet sight unseen, they lessened their chance of disappointment and maximized their likelihood of satisfaction by choosing a member of Lake to Lake. Here are other member inns in and nearby Mt. Pleasant.
