    About Kara's Kottages in Kalamazoo, Michigan

    Kara's Kottages are in 3 seperate locations situated near the Downtown District.  All are furnished with many comforts of home, including a well stocked kitchen, cozy living room, separate bedrooms and a spacious bathroom. Plus, all the warm touches you’d expect from a beloved B&B, like fireplaces, beds you melt into, European-style breakfast treats and even mini-bars. Please read individual room descriptions for additional location details.

    If you’re seeking an innovative and modern B&B experience, you’ll enjoy our notion of doing something different rather than doing the same thing better.

    However, if what you’re seeking is a traditional B&B experience which includes prepared breakfast with other guests, daily housekeeping, frequent interactions with the innkeeper and renting only one room, we might recommend another, local option.

    Kara’s Kottages offers the decidence of a modern and high end B&B, but with the privacy and casual atmosphere of most vacation rental options. Guests enjoy our self check-in’s, keyless entry, kottages that can accommodate 1-5 guests, diy meals, great outdoor spaces and an elusive innkeeper.

    Each kottage is lovingly designed for those who wish to be on their own schedule in a peaceful and private space without the constant presence of a live-in innkeeper and other guests.

    This unique layout allows us the flexibility of renting each kottage seperately or renting the entire house to groups of up to 12 people. Both options provide guests with lots of privacy and amenities and are available for short or extended stays.

    What you will enjoy most about each Kottage is the attention to detail and special touches. This home reflects Kara's 17 years of design experience, healthy outlook to life, connection to nature and strong work ethic.

    This conveniently located bed and breakfast is within walking distance to Downtown Kalamazoo, a multipurpose trail, shopping, great restaurants, 2 local colleges, several brew pubs and much more.

    Come see how we put the "inn" in innovative when it comes to lodging!

    Available for overnight, weekly or monthly stays, Kara’s Kottages are an excellent choice for business or pleasure.
