1st time visit to Saugatuck 10/2013 for 25th anniversary. We wanted trip to be special. Based on some reviews, hesitant to stay at Serendipity. But, the relatively reasonable cost & idea of breakfast delivered to room won us over (anti-social? -- maybe!).
House is adorable & in perfect location (walking distance of everything). Greeted by David (very sweet) who gave us literature about area (he loves Saugatuck) & showed us to Music Room suite in separate house steps away from main house. Suite is huge with full kitchen, living room, bathroom & bedroom (king size bed). Decor not fancy, but inviting. Suite very clean with plenty of towels & toiletries. Kitchen stocked with dishes, wine glasses, cups & a special coffee blend from Uncommon Grounds coffee shop. Bed insanely comfortable & room quiet. Breakfast basket included egg casserole one day & spinach pie another. Yum! Delicious coffee cake, blueberry muffins & fresh fruit also part of feast. Could not eat everything, so popped food in refrigerator for later.
Saugatuck is awesome (can't wait to return). Ate at restaurants recommended by David. Every person we met was friendly, welcoming & accommodating. Walked up Mt Baldy 282 steps (everyone should try, if able). Oval Beach simply breathtaking.
Highly recommend Serendipity for value, accommodations, service & food. Did not tour other local B&B's & have stayed in only one other B&B before, so frame of reference limited. Based on price of some of the local B&B's (one double $$), assumption is others might have fancier decor or offer more amenities. Don't know. Do know -- Serendipity perfect for a weekend getaway.
