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.

A true "home away from home."
Very pleasant surprise...full kitchen PACKED with everything you need. Same in the bathroom...bathrobes, q-tips, shampoo, etc. "Junk drawer" stocked with everything from a pair of scissors to twist-ties, it's like being at home. The TV is much larger than typical hotel sets, and so is the family room. Only downside is if you have issues after hours, since there is no on-site maintenance. This was a non-issue for us. Bottom line...why would you stay at a hotel when you can have this? Much more private and really feels like being at home.
