Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast

Got Chocolate?

A Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Whitehall, MI is the place for you!

Awarded multiple Best Breakfast & Best Innkeeper awards, the historically restored Bungalow features CHOCOLATE! From the Chocolate decadence at check-in to Hot Fudge, fresh strawberries and chocolate bread in the morning, even the most serious chocoholics have not been disappointed.

A Cocoa Cottage B&B is a beacon for those looking for simplicity in a setting of natural beauty. Escape to the heart of peaceful West Michigan and expect a warm welcome from Larry & Lisa. Rooms feature full private baths, TV-DVD, Queen/King Pillow Top Mattresses, WiFi, Central AC, expansive library and of course, Chocolate. Our focus is simple: Be passionate about what we do & do it well!

We provide a perfect place to celebrate & relax, or allow a business traveler to regain energy! The lovingly restored 1912 Arts & Crafts bungalow is an architectural breath of fresh air. Quiet refined character, classic tasteful decor and impeccable attention to detail take you back in time when life had simple elegance and a relaxed quality seldom enjoyed today.

Unwind by our cozy fireplace after a brisk day at the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex, or on our sun-dappled screened porch after 18 holes at Old Channel Trail. Muskegon County boasts of nearly as many golf courses as they do marinas and public beaches. Cruz'In Antique Car Show, Summer Celebration, Pumpkin Roll down Dowling Hill or the Blueberry Festival are just a few of the many festivals and events you can enjoy.  

A Cocoa Cottage B&B is just minutes to Lake Michigan's white sand beaches, 1 block to the 24 mile paved Hart-Montague bike trail and the newly designated Arts Council of White Lake's sculpture trail, and adjacent to the Historic Howmet Playhouse. Spend you day viewing the authentically restored Victorian treasurers of the Hackley and Hume Homes or Frank Lloyd Wright's Meyer May House.

Whitehall-Montague is a very walk-able community.

Within 2 blocks experience shopping at the Hokey Pokey home decor consignments shop, Posh upscale womens clothing, the General Store fabrics and gifts, Corner House of Gifts and Colby Street Antiques. Then just stroll over the bridge to Montague and grab a coffee and a book at the Book Nook and Java Shoppe, take in a class at White River Yoga, satisfy your soul at the White River Gallery or the Montague Antique Mall. Don't forget to pick up some of Beth's yummy scones at our friend Beth I's Pies!

Within walking distance from the Cocoa Cottage B&B are several quaint dining options. Enjoy lunch or dinner on the shore of White Lake at Crosswinds or overlooking the marina from Harbor View Grille; The Utopian Marketplace offers organic vegetarian cuisine, while Pekadil's offers the best in hand packed ice cream.  Sam's Bistro features an authentic Middle Eastern menu and the best white gourmet pizza found.  Step back in time at Lipka's and be surprised with Becky's delicious soups and sandwiches. Your in-room concierge book will guide you through all the local restaurant menus.

Share laughs during our welcome reception of wine, cheese and chocolate. Discover something unique and wonderful while strolling around the gardens or shopping in downtown Whitehall and Montague. No matter the season, awake to one of Larry's sumptuous award-winning breakfasts of Cottage Eggs, or Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with fresh Organic Blackberries, or Salsa Souffle. Chocolate bread, Hot Fudge & fresh Strawberries are enjoyed every morning!

A Cocoa Cottage B&B is the perfect setting for an intimate wedding where no detail will be overlooked. Lisa's extensive design experience and event planning ensures that your celebration will be unique and memorable. Please call for a personalized consultation.

We are the perfect venue to unleash new thinking and ideas from your staff by hosting a corporate retreat at a Cocoa Cottage B&B. A professional, confidential setting catering to the business guest by white-collar dropouts who understand the needs of today's business traveler.
