I was looking for a bed and breakfast that would allow me to bring my dog. We were in the general area for a Nose Work Trial and needed someplace peaceful to rest before our competition the next morning. This was definitely the place. The property is gorgeous. The views are so serene. I regret that we could not have... More

The Dewey Manor Inn provided peaceful and charming lodging. The. Hosts are gracious and breakfast hearty and delicious. We enjoyed morning coffee by the lakeshore. We stayed in the lakeview room which was spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom was also spacious and very clean. We would definitely return.

My husband and I stayed in the Dewey Lake Manor at the end of May and we enjoyed our stay. We liked all the details of the decorations and furnishings, which fit the inn perfectly.

My wife and I were attending an event at the Michigan International Speedway and came across this B&B through Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed.

My wife and I, and another couple, attempted to make a reservation at the Dewey Lake Manor B&B, but were refused service.

First of all this gentleman, at the end of his post, said he stayed in November-he has not stayed with us. The ToughMudder is a 2 day event-we have a 2 night minimum. He wanted 1 day. He also wanted to check in early and go fishing, and if I had given him a late checkout, it would have prevented... More

Although the house sits on a beautiful piece of property we found this B&B disappointing. We were misled by the location although I can't say the owners were responsible for that.

Great place for a getaway! Barb and Joe try very hard to keep up with the property and ensure you have a great visit. The breakfast was great and the view was even better. It was quiet and so much better than staying in a hotel. We would come back to visit if we were in the area.
