Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Kara is a Michigan native with an appreciation for nature, a passion for good design and a love for historic homes. She moved to Kalamazoo from the shores of Lake Michigan in 1990 to attend college. She remained in Kalamazoo because of it's youthful energy, amazing people and an up and coming direction which has since been realized. When she's not combing the earth for treasures to use in her kottages and working on DIY projects, she's often found running, cross country skiing, biking, kayaking and traveling.

Why the Owner Chose West Main HIll, Kalamazoo, MI, USA:
This Unique, Kalamazoo Bed and Breakfast is a beautifully renovated, Italianate-style, three-unit home nestled in between three historic Kalamazoo neighborhoods and located on Kalamazoo College’s scenic campus. All three private Kottages within this multi-unit house are furnished with all the necessities 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. Available for overnight, weekly or monthly rental, this Kalamazoo B&B is an ideal choice for business or pleasure.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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. Kara’s Kottaages offers much more privacy, flexibility and space than most b&b’s, which includes self check-in’s at anytime, kottages that can accommodate entire families, diy meals of what you want when you want, the option to host small gatherings indoors or out and an innkeeper who does not enter the kottage unless requested to do so. 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.
