... I read a little about the Amish on my trip to see Michelle in New York last June, so I was very careful not to take photos out of respect.
It was a rainy day with lots of curios to look at when we got to the fair. We walked through the rain gamely, but soon tired of rusting tools and started rusting ourselves. We had bought an apple panel for a dollar and a needlepointed footstool for $10, but then we had to carry around said ...

... miles before finding the laundromat. The rain has cleared up a little, and we are expected to bike later tonight, because of this mornings delay. We have been lucky because these last three nights we have had campgrounds but our luck is ending tonight. East central MI feels different. The men are either in Amish attire or wear shirts without collars or sleeves. It is hard to find WiFi. They sure like Fox News here. Everyone seems to watch it. Total Mileage: ...

Other than saying how great it is to have the whole tournament on ESPN so I can watch any game I choose, there is not much else to add. I had a quick dinner and turned in for an early night - which was hindered by the room next door enjoying their Friday night alot more than I had. It was the first time I have had to use earplugs - I couldn't really complain though - it was 8pm when I was trying to sleep!
July 15, 2008 Michigan, USA After 20 months of travel we have finally come home. We are exhausted but had a wonderful time. Thanks for following along. We hope to complete this blog later with some financial summary so you can see how much a trip like this actually costs. If you are interested in that sort of thing check back in a few months.

Historical Traveler Reviews Saravilla Bed and Breakfast Alma
High Style in a Lovely Small Town
Every bed and breakfast is different. That's why people stay in them. But it's always nice to land in one that suits you perfectly. Saravilla is a large historic house, tastefully restored rather than remodeled. The guest rooms are lovely, large, and restful. There is a lot of area dedicated to guests with a guest kitchen, living area, billiard room, and more. Breakfast is outstanding, well prepared with a broad selection of hearty dishes and light. The owners are great, and their B&B attracts nice people. You will find yourself dallying to talk at the breakfast table even if you thought you were in a hurry. We would love to have the chance to enjoy this again soon.
A great quilter's retreat
I've been going to Saravilla for seven years in the spring with a group of quilters. We are able to enjoy the friendships we have established and also set up our sewing machines in the Saravilla ballroom for 4 days and just work on quilt projects and have fun. There are generally 14 of us and each year we talk about staying longer and longer. That is how much we enjoy our time at Saravilla. Linda and John are great hosts. The food is always good, the rooms are comfortable. Alma is a quiet town and very relaxing. The home of Alma College.
The Crosstown Patchers look forward to next year's trip from the minute we leave! I highly recommend it for a group gathering of about 14-16 people.
Exceptional Bed and Breakfast Experience
Everything about Saravilla is wonderful The breakfast is out of this world. The host and hostess are very accommodating. The 11,000 square foot home has 7 bedrooms with private bathrooms. It has a 1200 square foot ballroom, hot tub, kitchenette, table tennis, and pool table. It's close to the center of town and surrounded by gardens and trees and is open year around. The rooms are very reasonably priced.
The Saravilla Bed and Breakfast has to be one of the most interesting, accommodating and comfortable establishments I have ever stayed at: and I have stayed at many!!
Saravilla was awesome!
The Saravilla Bed and Breakfast was a welcome respite for us with a decor and charm unsurpassed in Mid Michigan. Linda and Jon Darrow made us feel welcome from the moment we entered. We stayed in the beautiful Turret Room, named for the classic Victorian architecture of that particular room. The amenities included a whirlpool bath, spacious room with a king size bed and comfortable sitting area with fireplace. The Saravilla also had a jacuzzi, library, pool table and complete snack and beverage area which we used. Breakfast was fantastic and I could have stayed all morning sipping coffee and talking with Jon and Linda. We can't wait to go back for an encore visit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip back to the 19th century with all the modern comforts. This huge, magnificent mansion has many original features and is beautifully decorated for a true feel of the late 1800's. Our spacious room was cozy and the 'ready-to-light' wood burning fire place was a delight. Private bathrooms are conveniently located across the hall. Friendly innkeepers Jon and Linda made our stay a pleasure. We completely recommend this Bed & Breakfast.
My husband and I recently spent an evening at the Saravilla Bed and Breakfast in Alma, Michigan, and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The home was built in 1894, and the owners have taken great care to renovate and preserve the home's original character and uniqueness. Our room had a sitting area with a wood-burning fireplace which added much romance and ambiance. The home's common areas and activities included a large ballroom, pool table, ping pong table, and hot tub in the sun room. The baked oatmeal at breakfast was incredibly delicious as was the egg bake and coffee cake. The rooms are reasonably priced, and the owners are very warm, friendly hosts who are careful to see to the needs of all their guests. We would highly recommend this B&B.
I just returned from my second stay at Saravilla. It is an amazing bed and breakfast in Alma, Michigan, a quaint little city in mid-Michigan. The owners make sure every little one of our whims are satisfied. The food is wonderful. There is always more food than you can eat. Fresh fruit, two entrees, and homemade pastries each day. They will take into account special dietary needs as well. Being pampered by them is a luxury I plan on taking advantage of each year. The rooms vary in size, either a king bed or two doubles with such detail to the decor. My room has a whirlpool and king size bed. Makes me feel like a queen. Linda and Jon, the inkeepers, are willing to do almost anything to make your stay there relaxing and enjoyable. I would truly recommend Saravilla to anyone that wants pampering.
Wonderful stay at Saravilla
This is a beautifully restored historical mansion in a residential district. Alma college is nearby and 20 minutes from outstanding restaurants. Every room features individual and outstanding room décor. Fireplace was ready for lighting and was restacked on request. Lots of attention to the details that make a stay enjoyable. Wonderful breakfast with gracious and friendly Innkeepers. We plan on returning in the future.
An historic mansion on a quiet street within walking distance to the downtown area and Alma College campus,excellent accommodations, and a fantastic breakfast!!! Will stay there again if we go to Ama. Gracious hosts that gave us the "run of the house which has a pool table and spa.
