Shelly et Fred sont deux perles, ils m'ont accueillie comme si je faisais partie de la famille avec une totale confiance et une générosité rare, leur compagnie est merveilleuse et enrichissante et leur maison un petit refuge de bonheur. Un immense merci à eux deux (et à Jericho

Shelly & Fred were amazing hosts and their place is immaculate! They were extremely accommodating & detail oriented. The historic home is beautiful. We enjoyed spending time in the yard, walking the neighborhood, and enjoying downtown Kalamazoo! Breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend this B&B, it was a perfect night away!

This b&b has the amenities of a 5 star hotel! The house is beautiful. Really nice backyard with a sitting area, plenty of space to lounge, and a lovely dining area. The bed was ultra comfortable, and the carpet was so soft that I told my fiancè that I could sleep on the floor. Shelley provided robes, a variety of toiletries, bottled water, coffee/tea all day, and a fruit basket. At night she does a turn down service and puts on soft music.

The breakfast was to die for. We had egg casserole with hollandaise sauce and asparagus, and peach rum french toast. They love to bake, so we also got fresh cookies and lemon meringue, as well as a yogurt parfait in bed at night. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful. You HAVE to stay here in kzoo.

My wife and I stayed at the Festive West B&B for two nights in late July. The house was recently totally renovated and everything is brand new, clean and in great shape. The hosts, Fred and Shelly were very welcoming and helpful. Since the weather was pleasant, we had breakfast in the backyard garden. Both breakfasts were excellent.

We stayed in the Master's Retreat. The bedroom was unusually spacious for a B&B with a very large bathroom and luxury shower. In our two week driving trip, this was the only accommodation that had a bathroom large enough to give us a double sink.

A very nice find. We would definitely do it again.

We couldn't have asked for more! Shelly and Fred provided us a wonderful experience at the Festive West B&B, we couldn't have asked for more. We were in town for just one night but they went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and at home. Shelly was wonderfully communicative about our plans before we got there, and set a great tone for the trip to come. The accommodations were very comfortable and well-decorated, the food was amazing, and the location was great, very walkable to downtown. I would unreservedly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Kalamazoo."

Dave, Ann Arbor, MI

We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary at Festive West Bed and Breakfast. We were surprised with an anniversary treat in our bedroom. We were in the large master sweet. The shower was TO DIE FOR. We so enjoyed a walking tour of the Victorian homes on Stuart Street and we were close enough to downtown to walk to dinner. The garden in the back was well thought out and included surprises like a fairy garden within the garden. Impressions included a grand staircase and a leaded glass window, The window seats all around were inviting and I long to go back with a good book and more time on my hands.
