Our stay at the Chelsea House was outstanding. In no time we felt welcome and at home with Andy and Nancy. The house is beautiful and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was sinfully good. The best part of our stay was having coffee with Andy and Nancy. They are a wonderful couple and a pleasure to talk with and get to know....

What a pleasure it was for us to spend time with you! We were delighted to share in your experience at the inn and to have you enjoy the rear parlor with your friends. Absolutely, the next time you come to Purple Rose Theatre, we hope you will stay at Chelsea House Inn! --Andy & Nancy

I was a little anxious to see what the new owners', Andy and Nancy, had done with the B&B. For fans of the Chelsea B&B, I can happily report back that a nice transition has taken place. A mix of old and new, a little more modern and a little less stiff. I really liked it. Another nice touch was...

I went to Chelsea to explore the town, what I experienced at this Inn was two really cool people, Andy and Nancy who are the owners. Let's start with breakfast, Manoman! The fireplace and front sitting room is so cozy after coming in from the cold, I so enjoyed that! I don't think I've ever been offered that kind of...

I had the privilege of staying at Chelsea House Victorian Inn in the Carriage House Suite. What a marvelous experience. Andy and Nance were the epitome of gracious hosts and the Suite had exquisite charm. The food was excellent and the Inn itself located in the perfect setting of beautiful tree lined streets and downtown Chelsea. Close to the Purple...

If you are planning a trip to Chelsea Michigan, staying at this Bed and Breakfast is a must. Andy and Nancy are both generous and convivial.

It was a pleasure to host you at Chelsea House Inn! And we're sure that Purple Rose Theatre was glad to have you as audience members 3x! Our fireside chat on a crisp fall evening in Pure Michigan was a pleasant bonus. We look forward to your next visit to Chelsea! Andy & Nancy

Nancy and Andy are simply some of the best hosts you could ever experience. Their definition of customer service exceeds what anyone could ever expect. When Uber didn't come to Chelsea for us, they took us to the Amtrak station! We had never met before this weekend, but they made us feel like we were old friends. Not only are...

An unexpected visit to Chelsea and a Google search for a nearby B&B landed us at this wonderful gem! Andy, the proprietor, greeted us upon our 10 p.m. arrival. The house is beautiful and immaculate and Andy is the consummate host. Our room was warm and inviting; facilities spotless, and the food was delightful. Familiar ingredients elegantly prepared - so...

This has been on my mind for nearly a year. My husband and I booked two rooms at the Victorian Inn last November. We planned to meet another couple to see a play at the Purple Rose.

Our condolences to you on the loss of your mother. It was distressing to hear of the experience that you had with Chelsea House Inn, and we are sorry that it occurred.
