My husband and I, through google, found this B&B and thought we would try something new. From the first phone call until check out the owners could not have been any better. The home was beautiful, very clean and homey. The Decor was beautiful also. The owner met us at the door upon arrival and gave us a tour. They were very kind and down to earth, not like others that are hired employees. The food was amazing and they give you a menu to choose the night before and you also get to choose your time. This B&B had so much to offer, from baked goods on the counter to filled refrigerators with beverages. It was quiet and peaceful and we cannot wait to go back!! Thank you Don &a Melissa for your hospitality.
My husband and I stayed at the Himelhoch to get away after a very stressful year of being constantly busy. This was a perfect place to stay and enjoy the house, walk around the block, and enjoy some local restaurants. The house is beautiful, and the breakfast was wonderful, with silverware that matched the house's era! The house features an above garage Game Room, with a stocked fridge of beverages (alcoholic and non), a billiards table, and a full couch with a Wii system and an extensive movie collection. My husband and I really enjoyed spending time together playing pool. There is also a hot tub that I wish we could have had time for. We would absolutely go again if we get another chance!
I lived in Caro, Michigan as a boy. I moved away a few years after high school. I would visit my home town during holidays and family gatherings. Now that my parents are both gone, I have no where to stay when I visit. Thank goodness for the Himelhoch Bed and Breakfast. I feel as though I am in a 4 star hotel in some big city... but I don't have the noise or traffic. I will always stay there when I visit from now on. I can count on the rooms being very clean, the food being excellent and the staff treating me and my wife just like family. 2 thumbs up from us.
I've stayed at lots of b&b's so my standards were fairly high, I've experienced not so great b&bs and exceptional ones but the Himelhoch Bnb was my best and favorite experience ever! The house is beautifully decorated and restored to its historical era. Our room the golda mae suite was amazing with a whirlpool tub, fireplace, and separate siting area. The hosts Don and Melissa were some of the friednliest people ive ever met and the breakfast was to die for. Never before have i stayed at a bed and breakfast where you get to pick the time of breakfast and order from a huge menu the night before. Highly reccommend to anyone looking for a romantic or relaxing stay in Michigan!
We discovered this wonderful bed & breakfast quite by accident. On a whim, my husband and I decided to book a one-night stay in early October, 2015 - just one night, to try this relatively unknown inn... We were surprised at the opulent elegance of this lovingly-restored vintage home - and so pleased with both our room and the innkeepers' hospitality that we booked a second night's stay, on the spot! Don and Melissa are the perfect innkeepers - friendly, attentive, caring, and invested in making your stay an experience you'll cherish forever. The house is beautiful. The rooms, comfortably luxurious. The breakfasts... oh my goodness, the BREAKFASTS! This is one of the few places we've stayed that offers their guests a choice in what to eat for for breakfast, each and every day. You fill-out an order the evening before, and your menu choices are made-to-order the next morning as you arrive in the dining room for your gourmet hot breakfast. Simply scrumptious! We also stayed at Himelhoch a second weekend in October 2015, and hope to book at least one more weekend there during this holiday season. I'm looking forward to seeing the old mansion in all her wintertime glory. I highly recommend The Himelhoch Bed & Breakfast for your luxury stay. So relaxing, and the pampering during your stay at The Himelhoch makes this bed and breakfast an ideal romantic destination.
We have a nice stay at this very historical B&B. It was like going back in time with a modern touch. Although it was a very short stay, we love this place more than any other B&B place because of the friendly staff, the beauty of the place itself, the wide and open area where we were able to sit and relax and a simple but nice breakfast that we enjoyed.
We had a lovely stay at the Montague Inn. The staff was very kind, helpful and knowledgeable. Our room was very pretty and spacious, and we toured several others in the main house that were also gorgeous. The breakfast was self-service continental with very limited choices, so that was a little disappointing. Based on others' reviews, it appears they sometimes do a full breakfast - perhaps there weren't enough guests staying the nights we were there? But otherwise a lovely place and we would go back.
My husband & I were very happy with the Montague Inn, beautiful grounds and home. Our host, John was extremely nice and gave us a lot of history of the home and the area, which is one of the things enjoy when we stay in a victorian B & B.
We arrived at The Montaque on July Forth just in time for a wonderful outdoor buffet and fabulous fireworks display provided by The City of Saginaw. Our host John couldn't have been nicer, a real gentleman. When we return to Saginaw we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else but the Montaque. Jim & Angie / Colorado Springs, CO
This review pertains to the Hulda room. The room was comfortable and adequate. We liked the outside landscaping and the lake. We appreciated having a key to the back door, as we returned after 10 p.m. I would like to thank John for his very good service. He was very friendly and helpful. However, we didn't care for the pedestal sink, and we thought the shower was too small. We would have at least preferred a portable shower head. On one occasion, I closed the windows before leaving, but when we returned, the window closest to the tv was opened. A short time later, a flying beetle was seen by the curtains. He was eventually caught and disposed of in the bathroom.
We stayed at the Montague Inn after spending a day in Frankenmuth. The staff was very friendly, and when we arrived before the appointed check-in time, thew staff had our room taken care of immediately. While we were waiting, they even encouraged us to peek into the other rooms in the house! All of the rooms were lovely and romantic, and I would not have minded staying in any one of them! I cannot wait to return the the wonderful place that is the Montague Inn. We had an amazing experience, and I will definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to all I know!
My husband and I made last minute plans and stayed one night at the inn. It was very peaceful and comfortable. I love the charm and beauty that this type of historical place offer. The staff was very pleasant and the continental style breakfast was good. I would recommend this inn.
My husband & I were married at the Inn this month. We booked the Montague Suite for two nights (my maid of honor & I staid the night before the wedding & my husband & I stayed on our wedding night). This was a great idea to have the room both nights as I was not stressed out running around getting ready the morning of our wedding. I had the suite available to my whole wedding party to get ready in, I even had my hair & makeup done right in the room! I love old buildings & this is one, it's great! The landscaping/flowers all around the Inn looked great. They even allowed us to bring in our own Arbor & decorations for the ceremony down by the river & it turned out great! Just watch out for events on the island, we had a little unexpected rock music playing from a DJ at Relay for Life on the island during our entire ceremony. Luckily that was the worst part of our entire wedding day. I do have to say that breakfast both days was just ok though, I thought maybe for a Saturday & Sunday breakfast might have been more of a breakfast buffet with hot foods & it was more of a continental breakfast. I would still recommend the Inn to everyone. If your are getting married or celebrating a special event or just looking for a nice place to get away in Saginaw, this is it! The Montague Suite is the best room at the Inn, followed by the Mary Sage room.
Recently, we stayed at Montague Inn; from check-in to check out we had awesome time. We had sweet heart package that includes accommodation and dinner. Food was excellent. Innkeeper Janet Hoffman paid individual attention to us. We want to say her thank you. We will come back during Valentine Season.
Me and my husband recently stayed at the Montague for two nights. It was a whole new discovery to us we have lived in mid-Michigan our whole lives and were not aware of this landmark. It was truly an amazing place to be when away from your everyday life.
Coming off I-75 we didn't know what to expect driving through and seeing old Saginaw for the first time. Finally we came upon what has to be described as an oasis of the city and what must have been 'Millionaire's Row' back in the day. The Inn and grounds were quite beautiful. The Main staircase leading to our room on the second floor was an architectural centerpiece. The Montague Suite, in which we stayed, was very spacious and beautifully detailed. It was October at the time and the fireplace wouldn't stay lit so we had a fairly drafty night's sleep. We had called down to have the fire relit and staff was very attentive but it kept going out. I was expecting dinner in the dining room to be a little more exciting than it was. Pork loin seemed a little on the well side. We would and have recommmended this Inn to our family and friends and would gladly stay here again when in the area.
We recently stayed at the Montague Inn for my birthday. Although dinner was very nice, I feel I must comment on this Inn. At the side of every entry door are clay pots filled with sand for the smokers. Nice to give them a place to put their "butts", but they truly needed to be cleaned out. There were hundreds of butts in them. The room could have used a good dusting and breakfast consisted of pre-packaged chocolate muffins and bagles, cold cereal, and white bread for toast.
