Thank you for your kind words! We hope to see you again!

5 out of 5
We booked the afternoon of our stay and it was a breeze, both through Travelocity and when I actually called Kara to confirm our arrival time. Our room was the top floor of a historic home in Kalamzoo. It was uniquely decorated with a the fun lights lit and waiting for our arrival. There was not a detail missed! We would highly recommend Kara's Kottages.

Nice accommodations near to campus & downtown

My husband, mother & I spent 3 nights in the Kottage when in town for college graduation ceremony. We had plenty of room and the kottage had everything we needed, and more. We greatly appreciated the variety of breakfast items and enjoyed them all. We were able to entertain and relax. Staying here was much more enjoyable than staying in a hotel where our rooms would have been spread out. We hope to return when we can enjoy the lovely patio.
