Cocoa Cottage Bed & Breakfast

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My good friends came from India to meet me in the Midwest for our annual vacation. We chose a stay at Cocoa Cottage as part of our Lake Michigan Circle Tour trip. The home was lovely and immaculate. My two friends are Vegan (I am not) and Lisa our host went out of her way to bake and prepare a welcoming treat for all of us as well as packing us a delicious breakfast to take with us in the morning as we headed out very early to catch the ferry to cross Lake Michigan. In it were Vegan breakfast items especially for them! We had a wonderful and memorable time at Cocoa Bed and Breakfast!

My work takes me to the Whitehall area about once a year. I have been staying at the Cocoa Cottage for quite a few years. I think my opinion can be summed up in the fact that I stay there on every visit to the area. Larry and Lisa, the owners and hosts, are kind and engaging people who make the lodging experience comfortable. My stays are always in the off-season, so the atmosphere is always quiet.

This B & B is owned & run by a very hospitable couple with a charmingly decorated home with a chocolate theme and gourmet breakfasts. My husband & I spent a relaxing 2 night stay for our 25th Wedding Anniversary recently and enjoyed all the amenities offered: wine & special treat reception, very comfortable Godiva room, cozy fireplace in the evening, and a wonderful breakfast each morning. Whitehall is a pleasant town to walk around on White Lake. The playhouse theater across the street is undergoing extensive renovations and will soon be bring more entertainment. Casual dining for dinner with good beer selections is just a walk around the block.

Photos below show some of the breakfast options and decor- I was supposed to stay elsewhere but they canceled my reservation due to a power outage. Well, I couldn’t have been happier!! The Cocoa Cottage is a beautiful restored arts and crafts style home that has been restored to a museum quality- each room has a chocolate theme and private bathroom. Lisa and Larry are the most perfect hosts and cater to special dietary needs as well! I will definitely return again!

We visited the Cocoa Cottage this past weekend. The published attraction was the "First Annual West Michigan B&B Cookie Tour", but, really, it was just an excuse to take a break. As always innkeepers Lisa and Larry were welcoming and delightful. The breakfast was delicious as always. We look forward to returning again and again.

I had a business meeting and stayed at Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast. What a great location! The bed and breakfast was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was amazing. The owners are very informative and kind. I can't wait to come back for pleasure!

Did not disappoint. Loved all the detail in renovating this beautiful Arts and Craft Home. The fireplace was very relaxing and cozy. Breakfast was delicious and presented nicely. Would definitely recommend!

Cocoa Cottage is the best bed and breakfast we have found.It is a real gem.It has the best atmosphere, the best breakfast and best hospitality - ever. We enjoyed the lake, the local restaurants for dinner and just sitting in the common area enjoying the vast library of books and magagines. We will and have been back again and again.

First time in B&B and Cocoa Cottage set the bar high! Besides the basics of clean and safe, they went above and beyond. Breakfast amazing. Beautiful furnishings and patio where you can sit and relax. Close to local brewery and beaches!

For the umpteenth time in a row, we just enjoyed another wonderful stay with Larry and Lisa at the Cocoa Cottage. Our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were terrific and the hospitality cannot be beat. Thanks for another pleasant weekend visit.
