Knowing that Cocoa Cottage had an excellent rating created VERY high expectations for us. And Larry wasted no time not only meeting, but exceeding them! We were greeted warmly and immediately shown into the cozy well appointed dining room to fresh baked chocolate cheesecake with fresh strawberries and wine! Our room - the Godiva - was beautiful, elegant and comfortable.... More

Cocoa Cottage is like no place I've ever been before. The setting is a faithfully restored Arts & Crafts style house just a couple of blocks from downtown Whitehall, Michigan. Even as you walk up the steps to the main entry, a sense of calm embraces you. As you step over the threshold, you are immersed in cozy comfort. Then... More

My husband and I decided to stay here for our 5th anniversary; we could not have picked a more perfect place to stay! Everything about our visit was extraordinary, and far exceeded every experience I've had at other B&B's I've ever been to - and that includes the ones in Saugatuck. Don't get me wrong, the other B&B's are good... More

The impeccably restored Arts and Crafts bungalow is a study project in itself - lots of history here. We were able to have breakfast outside both days due to excellent weather which made the outstanding food even more enjoyable and relaxing. Innkeepers Larry and Lisa accommodated our late arrival via the Badger ferry and also helped us with places to... More

We've returned to the beautiful Cocoa Cottage nearly ten times and have always had the same all-around high quality visit. The gourmet breakfast is creative and delicious every time. The service is impeccable.

Spent one night here while our kids were away at camp. We had a lovely time and the breakfast was delicious. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The inn keepers were very friendly and helpful. You can walk to many shops downtown and there's a brew pub near by that my husband really liked. Give it a try,... More

Well cared for Bed and Breakfast. Chocolate and port in your room. Breakfast was wonderful including fudge sauce to spread on bread and/or strawberries. 😃 The hot chocolate was absolutely the BEST I have ever tasted. Thank you Lisa and Larry!!
