My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and picked Dove Nest B &B because it was near St Joseph Mich where we wanted to visit. We were pleasantly surprised by the hosts Jitka and John. They were very kind and helpful during our visit. Not to mention the delicious breakfast that they prepared for us. We would recommend this...

My boyfriend and I decided to try a B&B for the first time and picked the Dove Nest based on its stellar reviews. I will agree that the food was amazing; Jitka has a knack for making healthy and delicious food with wonderful presentation. The Royal Oak room was clean and comfortable, complete with a large whirlpool tub which was...

This was my first B&B experience, and I am soooo glad I chose Dove Nest! It is a short drive to St Joseph's cute downtown area. It is surrounded by tall trees making it feel very intimate and secluded. We stayed in the Pond View Room, everything was immaculate. You can tell that John and Jitka are very attentive to...

We stayed for two night's in the Royal Oak Room at Dove Nest in St. Joseph. Beautiful room, beautiful grounds, very friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The breakfast was excellent and the whole B&B was so cozy. There is so much to do in this area of Michigan. Thank you John & Jitka. We will certainly be back!

We stayed for three nights at the Dove Nest B&B near St. Joseph, MI, in August, 2014, on vacation from Florida. It was a lovely rural setting within easy driving distance of St. Joe and other nearby cities and wineries. Jitka was very friendly and accommodating and the rooms and common areas were very clean and comfortable. Our room was...

Dove Nest Bed and Breakfast was part of our the wonderful engagement weekend that my boyfriend (well, now fiancee) planned for us. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, and I had no idea where we were going until we got there. It was nice to be very close to St. Joe's but still feel secluded and...

This stay was for an anniversary weekend in August 2014. Dove's Nest was very enjoyable. Our host, Jitka (say yitka) was very pleasant. She started by giving us a tour of the dining room and common area. Then we walked out side to see the grounds. They have a very nice back yard full of trees and evergreens for seclusion...

The location was great in a nice quiet area but close to neighboring cities such as St. Joseph which is beautiful. We were also close to several wineries near and in Baroda which were also nice. We were served a wonderful breakfast both mornings and the owner was very welcoming, friendly, and provided us with information and suggestions for places...

We were expecting the 'charm' of the exterior as we drove up. It looked like a house built in the 80's for the sole purpose of a B&B. We never met or saw John and after reading the reviews were excited to at least hear one story, though we heard he was there :) Our reception upon arrival seemed chilly...

The house was built as a family home in 80's and converted to B&B 3.5 years ago. Internet password for WIFI is displayed in each room (black print on pink laminated paper for easier noticing). Since your stay we added written instruction on how to operate TV remote control. Sorry, we did not explain how to turn the button on...

We have just returned from our stay in The Royal Oak Room at The Dove Nest. We, reluctantly, said our farewells to the owners, Jitka and John but, the feeling of being enveloped in Old Word charm, gentility and service came home with us. We shall return to meet Jitka, John and Company soon. This B&B in every detail is...
