We bookended our anniversary with a two night stay here. Sooney and Mike are fantastic hosts! We were not the only people there the first night but our rooms were thoughtfully on different floors. All our questions about the area were cheerfully answered by both hosts with some suggestions of things we might enjoy doing or seeing in the area....

I booked the Willowicke Inn for a weekend with my high shool girlfriends. When we arrived it felt as if we were coming home. Michael was there to greet us and take our bags to our rooms. We met Sooney later and discovered what a fantastic cook she is. Her breakfasts were simple , delicious, meticulously prepared using local ingredients...

We stayed for four nights in June 2016 and it couldn't have been better!! Soony was an amazing host and went above and beyond to accommodate us with our 5 month old baby, even buying a pack n'play and bath seat for him to use while we were there! She also allowed us to use the common areas to host...

This place is fantastic, especially if you travel with a group. The first floor has an amazing kitchen area perfect for playing board/card games, a sitting area to hang out with all your buddies and chit chat late into the night and a nice little library area if you just want some quiet time to read and snuggle up in...

My sister and I booked a last minute get-away to the Willowicke Inn. We were blown away! The home and property are amazing (we loved the llamas), one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. Sooney was more than hospitable. She made us feel right at home and "spoiled". Breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommend! Already planning a girls weekend...

The Willowicke Inn is absolutely charming! The rooms are comfortably elegant, the food is delicious, and the setting is wonderful--beauty visible in every direction! Sooney makes you feel right at home and your time will be so relaxing that you won't want to leave!

We discovered this beautiful B&B online about a year ago & hoped to book a stay. To our disappointment, it was already booked up. My husband however, remembered how much I hoped to stay there & surprised me by booking the Attic Treasures room for our anniversary this past weekend! He couldn't have made a better choice. Decorated to perfection...

We spent the weekend at Topliff's based on the recommendations of some friends who were also staying there. The location is rural, yet not hard to find. The grounds are lovely. The rooms had unique decorating touches and were very comfortable. Sheryl is a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. Her breakfasts are outstanding! We really liked...

I just love this place and Sheryl is always so friendly, kind and gracious. From my first stay a few years ago I remembered she made decadent chocolate chip muffins as part of breakfast. I mentioned that to her on my second visit this year and much to my delight she made them for the breakfast feast the following morning....

There is a first floor room with private bathroom at this time! Renovations between 2012 and 2016 have now provided easy access for those who prefer first floor accommodations. As the new owner of Topliff's Tara,now named The Willowicke Inn, we strive to uphold the excellence in service provided by the Topliff Family! I hope those who stayed at Topliff's...

This Bed & Breakfast is on a Llama farm just south of Lansing Michigan. The hosts were delightful and accommodating with very nice rooms and an ample hot breakfast. Convenient to Michigan State University and Lansing. Our second time there but not our last.
