Since opening in 1984, The Parsonage 1908 guests compliments have put our B & B on the top of the list with Michigan's best lodging facilities!
Our home was built as a parsonage by one of Holland's early Dutch churches, in order to call their first minister. The inside still glows with the original dark oak woodwork, pocket doors and leaded glass windows that were so lovingly and masterfully crafted for such an important mission.
A visit to our All American City is a must. Guests enjoy Tulip Time in May, Lake Michigan beaches, boating, swimming, golf, tennis, biking/hiking trails, art & antique shops, summer theatre, and exceptional dining, fall colors. Hope College is just three minutes away. Saugatuck Resort is 12 miles.
Situated in a lovely residential neighborhood, our guests can relax and enjoy our two sitting rooms, summer porch and outdoor garden-patio with a glass of lemonade. Or in winter we serve hot spiced cider in front of the fire in our Country Kitchen. In the morning guests awake from a peaceful sleep in their elegant guestroom to the tantalizing aroma of our famous baked pancakes, which a judge guest "ruled" a culinary masterpiece.
Bonnie's Parsonage 1908 Bed & Breakfast's gardens has been awarded a 2004 Holland Beautiful Award.
