(Jones, MI) My wife and I spent two nights and three days in western Michigan last week at a bed-and-breakfast The Sanctuary at Wildwood, and we were quite impressed with the accommodations, hospitality, and overall excellence of this establishment.
Each of the rooms at The Sanctuary has a different theme, and we stayed in a room called Keeper of the Wild. The room features handmade birch furniture, beautiful wildlife murals, and a birch trunk headboard. Included with the room are a full bath, a Jacuzzi, a fireplace, a service bar with refrigerator, a writing desk and a private patio.
Nestled on a 95-acre parcel south of Kalamazoo, The Sanctuary boasts hiking paths that meander through forests and meadows. In addition, there is a small private lake that is stocked with a variety of gamefish, and The Sanctuary has a heated outdoor pool for relaxation.
Within a 30-minute drive of the inn are a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and outdoor activities for those who wish to explore western Michigan. One of the highlights of staying at The Sanctuary is the hospitality of the hosts, Dolly and Dick Buerkle, as they know all the quality destinations and are more than happy to make reservations for you.
The Sanctuary wouldn't be a "bed-and-breakfast" without providing visitors with a morning meal, and Dick and Dolly prepared incredible meals every breakfast. Each morning we went downstairs to the dining room and enjoyed breakfasts so delicious they were almost beyond description.
The Sanctuary at Wildwood is located at 58138 M-40 in Jones, Michigan, and you can reach Dick and Dolly at 269-244-5910 to make reservations.
