Classic Urban Lodging

Nestled in charming historic neighborhoods in close proximity to Downtown Kalamazoo are 5, very well appointed "kottages" referring to the comfortable style of the interiors spaces. These decadent kottages are available to the public for nightly, weekly or monthly rental, are completely furnished and include breakfast.

Welcome to Kara's Kottages

All 5, private kottages within these 3 locations are furnished with all the comforts a guest desires, including kitchen basics, a cozy living room, separate bedrooms and a spacious bathroom. Plus, all the warm touches you’d expect from a beloved B&B– like fireplaces, beds you melt into, European-style breakfast treats and even mini-bars.
Available for overnight, weekly or monthly rental, Kara’s Kottages are an excellent choice for business or pleasure.

What makes us unique from other lodging choices

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.

  • Coffee Table & Books

Kara’s Kottaages offers much more privacy, flexibility and space than traditional B&Bs, which includes self check-in’s, kottages that can accommodate entire families, diy meals of what you want - when you want, the option to host small gatherings indoors or out and an elusive innkeeper.
