About the owner: I am a Michigan native with an appreciation for historic homes, a passion for good design and a love for the planet.
I moved to Kalamazoo from the Shores of Lake Michigan in 1990 to attend college. I remained in Kalamazoo because of the youthful energy, amazing people and an up and coming direction which has since been realized.
In my spare time, when I’m not combing the earth for treasures to use in my Kalamazoo Bed and Breakfast, I’m exploring life with my husband, Dean. We enjoy participating in recreational sports, the company of our friends & family and traveling.. All while being responsible stewards of the planet.
Why the Owner Chose Kalamazoo: 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, I might recommend another option.
Available for overnight, weekly or monthly rental, this Kalamazoo B&B is an ideal choice for business or pleasure.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast: In practical terms: I have developed a space that is unique and ideal for today’s modern travelers who desire all of the comforts of home during their stay; A separate spaces within a home that allow for additional visitors, multiple guests and total privacy. All this, and on a heavily wooded lot with a great outdoor space in a safe and quiet, historic neighborhood near Downtown Kalamazoo.
This Extended Stay Bed and Breakfast allow for the flexibility of renting to 1-5 guests for 1-90 days while offering each guest every comfort of home no matter what their length of stay.
In Idyllic terms: Attractive, peaceful and picturesque.. In good design, this has always been my objective and this Bed and Breakfast is no exception. What you will enjoy most about each Kottage is the attention to detail, gorgeous design and little extras. This home reflects my vast experience, healthy outlook, connection to nature and strong work ethic.
This conveniently located, Kalamazoo Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance to Downtown Kalamazoo, bike paths, shopping, great restaurants, 2 Local Colleges and much more!
Kara’s Kottages is also unique in that there is not a live-in innkeeper. This detail gives my guests more privacy and autonomy during their stay, giving this B&B a vacation rental flavor.
