This is probably the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed with the folks at the Waters' Edge, and I look forward to the trip every summer! We love the Classical Music room due to its spaciousness, but we have also stayed in the Hollywood room and loved the Tropical Room (smaller room but has the advantage of less noise... More

We were just there last week and it was wonderful. We had the tropical room and it was great. Our room overlooked Lake Michigan. We had our own private balcony. The breakfast was soooooo... good. Keri was a pleasure to talk to. Would highly recommend

Our recent visit to the Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. Beautiful view of Lake Michigan from your room and back deck. Delicious breakfasts, with great conversations with Kari and other guests. The fireworks over the 4th of July weekend by Dave and Kari were incredible, they made us feel like part of their family with their great hospitality. Can't wait... More

We were in for a big treat! Unknowing to us, we were entertained with some awesome fireworks on Saturday night.

We visited for a girl's wine tour. Kari was very friendly and attentive to her visitors. Her breakfasts are delicious. The rooms are each themed and are clean and well kept. If you like quiet solitude with a beautiful view, you cannot help but love this place. I would certainly return for another visit.

We celebrated our ten year anniversary here and couldn't have had a better time. We stayed in the honeymoon themed room and it was warm, cozy, super relaxing, and private.

I loved the view of the lake from our room and the sound of the waves. I was skeptical at first due to the lack of a/c, but it is so close to the water that it was cool enough with just the windows open. The owners are very friendly and great at giving recommendations on places to eat and... More

If you are looking for a quaint little place in Algoma, this is it! Kari was a wonderful hostess! Very accommodating to her guests! Each room has a different theme, but a gorgeous water view! You can't beat this place for a stay on Lake Michigan.
