Great place to stay

Clean, spacious apartment style living
The Birch Bark Cottage unit was excellent. Two bedrooms, one bath plus kitchen, dining and living areas. Rooms aren’t huge but there was plenty of space for me and my two teens to hang out comfortably together and also have our own space. The unit was fully stocked with towels, extra sheets and blankets, simple breakfast items, plus plenty of kitchen supplies for people staying longer and cooking in unit. It’s really like staying at a friends apartment when they aren’t here, The location is close to downtown but not too close. Food, coffee, drug store all nearby. I recommend an eye mask and ear plugs for light sleepers - window treatments aren’t black out, and it is next to a main road. Those things don’t bother us and would not keep us from staying here again. There is a noise machine in one of the bedrooms, The unit was in excellent condition- looks freshly painted - and very, very clean. Better than many hotels I’ve been in.

A quiet place to stay with personality
Kara's Kottages is a wonderful alternative to a bland hotel. It was convenient, quiet, lovely! Like an airbnb but better. I'll be staying there again, for certain. It's especially convenient for family of students at either Western or Kalamazoo College.
