In Love and In Business After 30+ Years!

What do a fully renovated 1920s Dutch colonial home, a certified kitchen and bath designer, and a licensed builder have in common? Put them together and they add up to the luxurious Prairieside Suites, an award winning west Michigan bed and breakfast, where owners Cheri and Paul Antozak help guests experience a life of luxury by creating a unique B&B experience.

Cheri, the designer, and Paul, the builder, worked together to make Cheri's dream of owning a "Romantic Bed & Breakfast" a reality opening their doors in April 2002; seven years after the Antozak's purchased this home. The entire home, was renovated to create luxury “spa rooms” out of six individual apartments. The traditional design and luxurious décor exude an atmosphere of warmth and indulgence, inviting guests to relax and forget the stresses of the outside world. As soon as you step through the front door, you are welcomed by smiling faces and hometown hospitality. Cheri says, “guests arrive as strangers and leave feeling like family”.

Luxury guest rooms are at the heart of this nurturing environment. Together, they meticulously created each room as a “one-of-a-kind” LUXURY suite. Each have a theme and decorative style from one our favorite parts of the world, and we love sharing these magnificent rooms with our guests!

Cheri's attention to detail shows in this multi award-winning B&B. These whirlpool & fireplace suites have been published in brochures and national design magazines. She invites you to “step out of your own life briefly and experience something different." Guests tell us that they leave feeling refreshed & rejuvenated. They’re energized and ready to go home and live their best life.

During the summer months, take a dip in the heated pool with waterfall; enjoy the colorful perennial gardens with fountain from the double glider swing in the pergola, or bird watch from a hammock under the shady canopy of the inn's three-hundred-year-old oak tree. In the winter, make popcorn and unwind in the comfort of your room while enjoying a movie from the inn's movie library, featuring over three hundred titles.

"We feel privileged to be able to provide the perfect setting for our guests to celebrate any special occasion," says Cheri. We understand our guest have many choices of places they can STAY, when they’re here with us our goal is to deliver an EXPERIENCE and really build a lasting memory while visiting the Grand Rapids area!

reprint from the Ypartnership/Harrison Group 2011 Portrait of American Travelers
Distinctive B&B ambiance appeals to growing number of travelers
Wednesday, July 06, 2011

The terms “bed & breakfast” (B&B) and “inn” conjure up romantic images of stately Victorian houses nestled among majestic oaks, graciously operated by entrepreneurs we secretly admire because they finally decided to follow their dream. Yet how do these seductive images translate into market appeal? Results of the just-released Ypartnership/Harrison Group 2011 Portrait of American Travelers reveal the answer.

Fully one out of every eight (13 percent) American leisure travelers stayed at a B&B or inn at least once during the previous year, the survey reveals. This incidence rises to one out of six (17 percent) among leisure travelers with an annual household income of $125,000 or more. And a remarkable eight out of ten (79 percent) leisure travelers express interest in staying at a B&B during the year ahead. Why is this notion so appealing? Not surprisingly, it’s the lure of their distinctive ambiance.

When asked why they patronize B&Bs and inns, leisure travelers who did so during the previous year cited reasons that point to the unique, authentic experiences they enjoy during their stay. Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of patrons prefer the private, less crowded, quiet atmosphere of small inns and B&Bs. More than half feel B&Bs offer a better sense of local culture (56 percent). Personalized service delivered by the innkeeper (54 percent), unique architecture and decor (53 percent) and home-cooked food (52 percent) are also cited as appealing aspects of B&B travel. When compared to a traditional hotel/motel, more than two in five travelers find B&Bs more romantic (47 percent) and feel more pampered (45 percent), while slightly less enjoy socializing with other guests (39 percent) and feel B&Bs are a more affordable escape (37 percent). One in five (19 percent) appreciates a general pet-friendly policy maintained by most B&Bs and small inns.

Among leisure travelers who express interest in staying at a B&B or inn on a future trip, the home-like ambiance and amenities they expect to find in these properties are the primary motivators. The majority of survey respondents cited comfortable beds/linens (92 percent), friendly staff (91 percent), complimentary, fresh-made breakfast (88 percent), free time to relax and unwind (87 percent) and knowledgeable innkeepers (80 percent) as desirable attributes of B&Bs. Other aspects include the opportunity to taste different or unusual cuisines (68 percent), free Wi-Fi availability (67 percent), romantic ambiance (63 percent), distinctive theme or atmosphere (59 percent), unique architecture (55 percent) and the ability to reserve a specific room with unique decor (53 percent). Two in five travelers are eager to socialize with other interesting guests (41 percent).

Clearly, consumers believe B&Bs and inns offer an alluring residential ambiance that is not found in most conventional hotels and resorts. When combined with the personal touches of the host innkeeper, this appeal is very alluring.
