Saugatuck Douglas Michigan
 

The Kirby House

The gabled peaks of the Kirby House Bed and Breakfast punctuate the skyline like tree tops set back off a ribbon of historic highway once known as the West Michigan Pike. This bed and breakfast in Douglas has a long and romantic history and is a registered Michigan Historic Site.

Today this classic Queen Anne Victorian bed & breakfast now accommodates guests who have traveled back in time 100 years to get there.  The path at the side of the house leads to a cheery wrap-around porch with overflowing flower baskets and wicker rockers. These are topped by a hexagonal turret all overlooking ragamuffin English-style gardens.

Guests enter the foyer where the sunlight falls on the oak hard-wood floor in a rainbow of colors fractured by the beveled glass front door – visitors quickly become infatuated with this lovely old house. Upstairs all of the eight guest rooms are decorated in Victorian comfort - each vary in design. The rooms are bright and cheerful, decorated with antiques and accented by patterned wall papers. Three have fireplaces.

What sets this Inn apart from others are its bountiful breakfasts which are  lavish "full" events.  The two Innkeepers share the responsibilities. Jim is the pastry chef.  Ray, a chef with CIA credentials, supervises the kitchen from where delicious gourmet breakfasts abound. His eclectic “cuisine of the day” may include crepes ratatouille, baked peach & cream French toast or Dutch apple pancakes —all served on fine china, crystal and linens.  Breakfast among the guests in the Inn’s oak-paneled dining room can be both gastronomically satisfying and intellectually stimulating. Ray is actively engaged in the culinary arts and has brought cooking classes to the Inn

The backyard gardens surround a heated pool and year-round hot tub, but for those who prefer the gorgeous surf, Saugatuck’s Oval Beach is just a four-minute drive away.

The feeling that ties everything together here originates with the Innkeepers whose genuine warmth and easy demeanor fills the Inn with hospitality.  If you’ve come for relaxation, indulgence and romance Kirby House Bed and Breakfast fills the bill.
