Prairieside Suites
Ranked #1 of 1 Grandville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 September 2012

Very great B&B. This was our first time in a B&B, we stayed only one night for our wedding night. It was a wonderful time. The room was excellent (Southern Mansion) with so many little details we wouldn't have ever thought would be necessities. The breakfast in the dining room was very delicious. We will definitely consider staying here again in the future!

This trip was for our 30th anniversary all organized by my hubby and daughter. We stayed in the New York Loft for 2 days........Wow! Every detail of the room was thought through with the greatest details! King size bed, jacuzzi tub for 2, wine chiller, heated bathroom floor, sitting area....microwave, small frig, iron and ironing board. We had a couples massage that were really nice. Our room as well as the grounds and home were spotless. The breakfast was really good and the area of the B&B was close to Grand Rapids. We spent most of our days bike riding at a local park. We definitely will go back and enjoy our alone time. Thanks Cheri for the hospitality!

Room Tip: There is a room that pretty much fits every style. If you look at the photo's you will pick the...

Thanks so much for your kind words. We are a perfect fit for folks that like to be outdoors. Millennium park is only 6 minutes away from our B&B. It's a wonderful place to spend the day riding your bike or walking the trails. Wayne & Terri really EARNED that ONE HOUR COUPLES massage after riding their bikes all day! Come back soon :-o)

My Hubby and I stayed at this B&B for our second anniversary. Everyone makes you feel so at home! Fresh cookies and pastries were right in the kitchen as we walked in. We stayed at the beach house. It exceeded our expectations on EVERY level. Heated floors, heated mirrors, heated towel rack. Big screen TV. Amazing oversized Jacuzzi tub and a beautiful and comfortable king size bed. They made a special cake for us and had the fridge stocked with our favorite drinks. The landscaping outside the B&B is amazing. Breakfast the next morning was so amazing as well. They served us like we were the most important guests they have ever had. Also, the hot cocoa is amazing and also available in your room. The hostess topped mine with whipped cream. They remember your name at the breakfast table! They really care about you at the B&B. We were absolutely thrilled to have stayed here and will be back FOR SURE!!!

Room Tip: The Beach house is separate from the main house. It is nice because it feels like your own little oa...

Katelyn & Derek were so sweet. At Prairieside Suites we love to make any occasion special. Derek ordered our FREE Anniversary package which included 6 candles and a bottle of non-alcoholic sparkling juice to enjoy. We hope to see you again soon...maybe for a birthday next time! Love from Cheri

They definately have the wow factor going on at Prairieside Suites in Grandville. Everything about this place was amazing, clean, presentable, very personable, and such a warm & helpful staff. We staying in the Southern Mansion room for two nights 3 days and ordered the hot breakfast to our room. The food is amazing, they spare no expense in decorating these rooms. For our first bed & breakfast experience it was amazing! I will definately visit many more times and am glad we chose Prairieside for our romantic weekend getaway!

We stayed Prairieside for two nights, in the Southern Mansion. We enjoyed everything, from the friendly stuff, the wonderful breakfast, hot chocolate, huge whirlpool tub, comfortable bed and the music. I enjoyed my relaxing, 30minute pregnancy massage too. The room service was awesome! We hadn't been away just the two of us for a couple of years. This was relaxing and peaceful. We also liked the location because it is close, many restaurants and mall. So much do and see, we wish we had stayed longer. This was our first visit, it will certainly not be our last. I will recommend it to anyone. I almost forgot to mention, the lovely garden. We relaxed on the hammock towards the end of the day enjoyed a cool breeze. Paul was nice enough to take pictures of us in the garden!!

Room Tip: The southern mansion is right by the dining area, so it can be a bit noisy if you plan on sleeping i...

This place is fantastic! This was our first bed & breakfast experience so I have little to compare it to, but we were so impressed by the personal touches and also the quality of the accommodations. The owners give so many little extras to guests to make the stay nice and the staff was so friendly and eager to do whatever they could to make our weekend what we wanted.

We arrived very late (10pm) and Cheri (owner) had one of her staff waiting up for us to make sure we got checked in and settled ok and were shown around upon arrival. This took the stress of our late start on Friday right out of the equation.

We stayed in the french villa suite which is on the lower level, but you would never call this a basement because it was so roomy and spacious and it is without a doubt a luxury suite. The room has a fire place, two person whirlpool tub, 46 inch. flat screen tv, dvd/vcr, cd alarm clock, refrig. & microwave and even a full set of dishes. The bathroom has heated toilet seats, a fog free heated mirror, and even a heated floor!. The kingsize bed was unbelievably comfortable, the best I have ever slept in. This comment comes from someone that stays at the Intercontinental Hotel in Chicago at least once every year, which is the lap of luxury for hotels, and I put the Prairieside Suites ahead of the I/C as far as comfort goes. We actually want our next mattress purchase to be the exact kind that was in our room!

They have an awesome hot cocoa mix free to all guests, free snacks, cold non-alcoholic beverage of our choice waiting in the refrig. for us, and a very good breakfast. I would say that the breakfast is very good and very pleasant, but not gourmet. This was perfect for us, as it was not stuffy at all.

They have a very nice, though small pool with a few chairs and a couple of nice glider swings and a really nice hammock in the backyard. They actually own 3 houses sourrounding a corner and have loding in two of them. We spent about 4 hours in the backyard. My wife stayed at the pool and I split time there with her and then about 2 hours laying in the hammock reading. The hammock really made my day. So relaxing laying in the shade reading!

They gave us directions to the mall and some dinner suggestions as well as some websites to check out things to do in G.R. during our two night stay.

The B & B is located about 6 miles south of downtown G.R., and is fairly close to the I-196 expressway so we had a very short drive to Charley's Crab for a fantastic dinner.

Not the country-like setting or shoreline setting that you might anticipate for a B&B, but they really have created an Oasis in a Grand Rapids suburb (Grandville). If you want a day at the beach, its about a 30 minute car-ride. I really doubt anyplace a long the water will have the quality, care for their guests and amenities that this place gives you. We loved it so much that we cannot wait to go back! We already are planning to come here every year for our anniversary.

We did have one complaint - this being our first B&B experience, how can we ever try another place? It cannot possibly compare to what we got to experience here. We are RUINED for any other B&B!

Room Tip: We would have been very happy with any of the suites we saw on the website. Not really a good place...

We visited Prairieside for a 2 night get away to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the Santa Barbara Beach house. What an amazing and beautiful room Cheri, the innkeeper and designer, walked us through everything. They have a wealth of knowledge about the area and things to do. They have a drawer full of maps, directions and menus. It was all right there at our fingertips. Loved the room with the relaxing colors, the heated floor and toilet seat as well as the tub. The food each day was wonderful. They really listened to what we didn't like and adaptd accordingly. This is a place we will definitely go to again and refer to our friends.
