My wife and I along with another couple thought it would be fun to go to a b&b for the weekend. I will start by saying that the place is very nice and has every amenity that you would ask for.
There are several problems.
I didn't fill out a form that was sent to me right away. There was a follow-up email and I was going to get to it we were still a couple weeks away. Cheri called me after 10pm on a Sunday night as started asking for all the information. I was already in bed and she was being very insisting.
Our Room was only accessible from outside. We had to leave the main house and walk around to the side. The walkway through the grass is broken up stamped concrete.
Which lead to the next problem. My wife wearing high heels after a nice dinner at steak house in GR. There was no lighting and broken concrete walkway, she ended up falling and severely spraining her ankle. I emailed Cheri and instead of calling or emailing back arrived at our room after 10pm to talk about it.
Stayed 10/17/15 in the Sana Barbara Beach house
This place is exactly what it advertises to be....beautiful, luxurious and as private as you want to make your stay! The communication with the owner was point on - she was on top of her game! From the second the room was booked until the day of arrival, Cheri (the owner) kept you up to date! The room was amazing and we did not have to pack too much more than our clothes - the room is equipped with most anything you could need - glass wear, cork screw etc. and toothpaste to deodorant and entertainment - movies & books. The place even provides bath salt for the Jacuzzi tub in your room! I cannot say enough about the length the owner goes to make your stay easy and relaxing! The King size bed was beyond comfortable! This is no Comfort Inn bed - its primo! We had heated floors in the bathroom and by the tub, a gas fireplace and big comfy robes waiting for us! This place is a must stay! And you will not be disappointed with the town! Cute shopping and great restaurants. You are also in the area of about 25 breweries! You will not be bored! I highly recommend this B & B and a visit to Grandville! You will not be disappointed! Well worth the money!
We stayed here on our last night in the US before heading home, so I had wanted a place of good quality. We stayed in the New York Loft and it was a really lovely room, nice big bed, great bath etc. I must confess I found the whole 'call and we'll guide you to a parking spot' thing a bit weird, I'm sure it's for guest's convenience, but to me it just felt a little over managed, as did all the labels in the room... one of the grab bar, one on the wine cooler, one to show you where the glasses went back etc etc... it was all very precise - but I probably only noticed because I'm completely the opposite of precise!
Cheri was very polite when we met her and very welcoming indeed. There are all sorts of baked treats etc that you can help yourself too, but we weren't too interested in that. we were tired from a busy week and just wanted to relax - which the whole room was perfect for.
I was a little disappointed with breakfast, it was an additional $20 each to have breakfast in our room - I can't cope with being sociable in the mornings. They had kindly asked for our dietary requirements, my other half doesn't like cheese, so I marked this - when breakfast arrived though all they had done for his was not put the cheese on top of the quiche, it wasn't a different meal - so it was a little dull. But that may well just be me being pedantic.
I'm not sure I would call staying here an 'experience' as the website suggests - the rooms are lovely and comfortable and the owner clearly has great taste. But actually people are what create an incredible experience in my book, and by the nature of this setup, you don't really meet many staff etc, so they don't have the opportunity to 'wow you'. I really don't think this place deserves a bad review - they are lovely, lovely rooms, it just wasn't quite as perfect as I'd thought it might be, but still of an extremely good standard.
We just stayed two nights in the Beach House room. It looks exactly like the posted pics! This room is just off the main house. The room was beautiful and really did include almost everything you need- shampoo/lotion/body wash, bath crystals for the amazing whirlpool tub, room spray, deodorant, and then kitchen items. The breakfast was cooked when you arrive for breakfast( unless you choose room service- for an additional charge). We did choose late check out and cheesecake- which was delicious!! We would definitely recommend this B &B!!
This B&B was fantastic!! The owners thought of everything for our stay. We really liked the fact that we were able to book a one-night stay, for a little extra. Most of the B&B's we looked at required a two-night stay. We were able to have a couples massage after arriving, and the owner was able to change our massage time (we got caught in traffic and feared we would miss our appointment). The main house has a selection of sweets to eat. We enjoyed breakfast in our room. It was really good and included a little bit of everything. Nicely presented also. We stayed in the New York Loft room. The room was very nicely decorated with several things I would like to find for home. The bathroom was lavish. I WANT A HEATED TOILET SEAT!! The room was quiet. The bed was comfortable. The 2 person whirlpool tub was very large and came with bath salts. Things I would have changed, but are not deal breakers were: there was no hair conditioner in the bathroom. When I travel, I always find hair conditioner included in the room. There was only a three in one shampoo/body wash. I have fine crazy hair and it requires conditioner. I didn't bring any, so I had crazy hair going home. LOL! Also, the wine bottle opener didn't work very well. Had a really hard time getting the cork out of our special bottle of wine! These things are minor though. We would definitely stay again!
We had a very nice stay in the Beach House room. I usually hate hotels (seriously..sleep on top of bed, shirt over pillow, etc). But this place felt like home! So clean, welcoming, and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The scone was amazing...who knew I'd like scones? The eggs were free range and I was accommodated well with my no meat diet. I just wish we could have stayed longer!
Prairieside Suites is the ultimate luxury getaway. Cheri and Paul have included EVERYTHING you could possibly want for a weekend getaway. Room was so comfortable, extremely clean, food delicious, and great hosts! What more could you want.
My wife & I have stayed at many B&Bs, and we booked Prairieside Suites for a well earned get away. Unfortunately, we ended up being disappointed in our choice. We stayed there April 3 & 4, 2015 in the New York Loft. It was the first time that we ever had gone to a B&B and not be greeted by someone when we arrived. We paid extra for early check-in and even called while we were enroute to confirm our arrival time. When we arrived, we were locked out and had to call the owner for key codes to get in. Luckily, we didn't call 20 minutes later; otherwise she would have been watching a movie and been unavailable. Again, for this, we paid extra. The room itself was very nice and well appointed. However, it was a bit frustrating that my wife & I had to share one hand towel during the two days that we were there (it wasn't even changed when the room was "cleaned"). The only cleaning that was done was that one of the waste baskets was emptied and the bed was made. The breakfasts were, at best, "okay". Their focus was obviously on fancy/eclectic rather than flavorful and filling. The portions were very small with no offer on seconds. The orange juice was warm. The second morning we had hot "pecan rolls". My mouth was watering until it was served. It was a dried up/crumbly concoction not much bigger (or tastier) than an alka seltzer tablet. For what you get, this B&B is way over-priced and my wife & I will not be returning.
My wife and I loved our time at Prairieside. We stayed in the French Riviera room and it was really cool. The bed was so comfy and soft. It was clean, charming, full of character. The owner and staff were very friendly. We plan to return.
Tuscan Villa was our choice for a couple days to unwind and relax. We were glad we choose this room. The decoration reminded us of Italy, the country we like to visit again.
The room had all the amenities we needed for our stay. The B&B is built and decorated with attention to details and guest's comfort in mind. Thank you both for our experience.
