Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Westwood - Kara's Kottages

Bed and Breakfast / Private Kottage/ karaskottages.com

THIS KOTTAGE LAYOUT IS UNIQUE TO THE OTHER LOCATIONS, SO PLEASE READ THE BELOW DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY:

This beautiful, 2nd floor, loft space is located within a 1920's bungalow at 509 N. Clarendon St..

NOTE: This kottage is on the 2nd floor of Kara's personal residence in a quiet neighborhood and is located only 1.5 miles from the Downtown District.

The spacious bathroom offers a soaking, slipper tub, plus a subway tile shower enclosure, a rain shower head, double vanity and lots of warm lighting and colors.

About Kara Keller

Kara is a Michigan native with an appreciation for nature, a passion for good design and a love for historic homes. She moved to Kalamazoo from the shores of Lake Michigan in 1990 to attend college. She remained in Kalamazoo because of it's youthful energy, amazing people and an up and coming direction which has since been realized. When she's not combing the earth for treasures to use in her kottages and working on DIY projects, she's often found running, cross country skiing, biking, kayaking and traveling.

Kara Keller purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Kara Keller chose Michigan

If you’re seeking an innovative and modern b&b experience, you’ll enjoy our notion of doing something different rather than doing the same thing better.

However, if what you’re seeking is a traditional b&b experience which includes prepared breakfast with other guests, daily housekeeping, frequent interactions with the innkeeper and renting only one room, I might recommend another option.

Available for overnight, weekly or monthly rental, this Kalamazoo B&B is an ideal choice for business or pleasure.

What makes this apartment unique

In practical terms: I have developed a space that is unique and ideal for today’s modern travelers who desire all of the comforts of home during their stay; A separate spaces within a home that allow for additional visitors, multiple guests and lots of privacy. All this, and on a heavily wooded lot with a great outdoor space in a safe and quiet neighborhood near Downtown Kalamazoo.

This Extended Stay Bed and Breakfast allow for the flexibility of renting to 1-3 guests for 1-90 days while offering each guest every comfort of home no matter what their length of stay.

In Idyllic terms: Attractive, peaceful and picturesque.. In good design, this has always been my objective and this Bed and Breakfast is no exception. What you will enjoy most about each Kottage is the attention to detail, gorgeous design and little extras. This home reflects my vast experience, healthy outlook, connection to nature and strong work ethic.

This conveniently located, Kalamazoo Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance to Downtown Kalamazoo, bike paths, shopping, great restaurants, 2 Local Colleges and much more!

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented all of Kara's available places for our family and wedding party the weekend of our wedding. Everyone RAVED about the places! The beds were super comfortable, the places were charming and the amenities available were perfect! My bridesmaids and I are already trying to think of another reason to rent them out. We highly recommend any of the units. Kara was also VERY helpful to me when setting up and booking the weekend. GREAT stay, if I didn't live in Kalamazoo already, I would rent from her whenever I came to town.

Amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend away staying in Kara's Kottage. It was quiet and luxurious - it's as wonderful, if not even better, than the pictures. We loved our stay and already want to plan another trip to K-zoo! The accommodations are great, and Kara is incredibly kind and welcoming. Thanks a lot, Kara!
