If you are a fan of the B&B experience, Amanda's Bequest is the ultimate encounter for you. It's a beautiful tribute to Michigan history where you can enjoy the surroundings of a bygone era. The culinary delights of your hostess are unbelievable, while the yarns your host spins are mesmerizing. The house and grounds are authentic and enjoyable with magical gardens and a forest with Gnomes to explore. The heart and soul of this beautiful area of Michigan is reflected in every detail of these artisans. ❤️

Stayed with my husband. We were a late arrival and they made it so convenient. The room was comfortable but the breakfast and company in the morning was more than I could have ever expected. We will stay again in the future without a doubt!

Valerie and John go out of their way to make you feel at home in this amazing B&B. This was my 2nd stay, and it was a privilege to come again. I happened to be there during a storm, and John called to see if we were ok coming back, and then left a giant flashlight by the front door. In spite of no power the next morning, we still had an amazing breakfast and hot water for showers. This is like coming home. If you have any type of food preference, Valerie is on it! She is an amazing chef, and who wouldn't love cobbler for breakfast? Thanks for another amazing stay.

We have stayed in many B&Bs and love having the experience of a home away from home. Typically you find a nice, clean room and a continental breakfast. At Amanda's Bequest the rooms are spotless but there is so much more. The Inn has historical significance. It's fun to learn about its past. John and Valerie have thought of everything, from extra quilts to a bit of chocolate and fully stocked coffee/tea service. The breakfast is farm to table and multi-course. The grounds are lovely. Rooms are spacious and very quiet. Check in is a breeze, with Valerie able to accommodate scheduling via phone or text. Every detail ensures a comfortable stay and you might even make a new friend.

Back after two years for a girl's weekend and still a great place to stay! It's an old parsonage thats been remodeled and feels like a country farmhouse. Nothing fancy but down home'ish. It's all about the people and the owners...and the great breakfast which usually starts with homemade pie! We love the Montague/Whitehall area...you can unwind here. There's a quiet beach nearby, some great Chamber Music Festival. Great concerts and we managed a free one at the local book shop/coffee shop/restaurant. Don't forget to eat at the Old Channel Inn. Best walleye in ages! And it's a short drive to the lake for a great Michigan sunset. Enjoy!
