An upcoming fun spring musical not to be missed is the Saugatuck Red Barn theater production of Always….Patsy Cline. It is being held the weekends of April 16-18 and 23-25. Lakeshore Arts Alliance is responsible for the production featuring the always popular Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys. Just one more reason to come visit us for a spring weekend getaway at our Southwest Michigan Bed and Breakfast. If you are a Patsy Cline fan, this show is not to be missed. Ask us for details when you call to book your Saugatuck spring vacation.
Aside from being providers of restful Saugatuck area getaways for our guests, we also enjoy travelling to bed and breakfasts, Inns, hotels, cottages and more. While on these getaway trips, we have had a variety of experiences especially when it comes to the beds and bedding provided by various vacation lodging providers. A good bed can make a huge difference in your vacation experience and we know this all too well. That is why we pride ourselves on constantly upgrading matresses, sheets, pillows and bedding. Our guests recognize this as well as we receive many compliments on how well our guests have slept while staying with us at our bed and breakfast.
Our most recent website updates were for the Michigan and national bed and breakfast awards and additional press coverage that our Inn has received over the past year. This blog is also a new feature that will help us to update guests about the events, specials, background, area attractions in Saugatuck, South Haven, Holland and all of West Michigan. As anyone who frequents our website has noticed, we are constantly updating various sections of our bed and breakfast website in order to keep it as current as possible. In addition, we also added a link to the main page and on the blog pages which allows a user to join our mailing list to receive our packages and specials emails.
After what has been a relatively dry spring season, we are very happy to see rain showers today at our bed and breakfast and the surrounding Saugatuck, South Haven and Holland areas. It was desperately needed as our flowers, trees and lawns are all trying their best to get a start for the season. Although our Inn’s current guests would rather have a sunshine day that lasts all day long, we have to admit that this morning’s rain was very much appreciated. Especially since we planted more tulips, hyacinths, pansies and other spring flowers around the property of the bed and breakfast. So as the saying goes, April showers will definitely bring (more) May flowers…
One of our most popular specials over the past two years has been the free massages that we offer with a two-night stay in our bed and breakfast’s suites or junior suites. The massages are a value of $150 and are two one-hour full-body in-house massages. It is a great extra special perk that we offer to guests of our Inn that has taken off like wildfire and is valid November 1st to April 29th of this year. So book soon to take advantage of this offer before the late spring/early summer season arrives.
One of the many romantic add-ons we offer here at our Bed and Breakfast is a gourmet chocolate sampler tray which are especially made for the Inn by Something Sweet which is a fantastic find in nearby Allegan Michigan. The tray we offer includes and assortment of chocolates, both dark and milk. But we can also specially design trays for a made-to-order romantic touch which can include sugar free chocolates, various flavors of candies and just about anything else your sweet tooth can imagine. Just let us know if you would like to add the tray or have your own tray design specifically for your romantic getaway.
A very Happy and Blessed Easter to everyone from us at the Kingsley House Bed and Breakfast Inn! May the holiday renew everyone’s spirit and bring new life to our world’s. It seems we so often times forget to remember the important things in our busy lives and it’s great to have holidays such as Easter to make us stop and reflect on what is truly important, close family and friends, good health and peace of mind.
One of the many perks of being a guest of the Kingsley House bed and breakfast is having 24-hour access to the hot beverages machine. Guests are encouraged to use it whenever they would live to enjoy a hot coffee (strong or mild, caffinated or decaf), teas (including a variety of herbal teas), cocoa or cider. We do not believe in charging our guests extras for the many extra perks that we provide as we believe a guest should feel like they are at home once they walk through the front door of our Inn.
It’s always a good sign when you feel comfortable enough with the weather to plant some annuals outside in West Michigan. We couldn’t resist adding some more color to the landscaping, wrap-around porch and entryways. We planted our first annuals of the year with some colorful pansies that are a bright and cheery addition to the bed and breakfast. Next to the Easter decorations, already-blooming daffodils and budding tulips, it can only make one smile to see that spring really has arrived in the Saugatuck area and the southwest corner of Lake Michigan.
It’s hard to believe that it is only April 1st here and 80+ degrees….a record here as the warmer April 1st on record ever. Although we know we still haven’t seen the end of jackets (and maybe even gloves?), we do know that one thing is for certain–the summer time season is just around the corner!!! It’s going to be a very warm few days here just prior to the Easter holiday season, but that’s okay as long as it cools down just in time for those nuts who dress up in the full Easter bunny outfits for the annual easter egg hunts! 🙂
