My husband and I had the pleasure to visit The Painted Turtle this weekend. My only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer! We stayed in the Moonlight Serenade room but all others look beautiful and inviting! Great common area with a warm fire and cozy seats to relax, read or play games. Beautiful dining room with tons...

Excellent accommodations. We typically stay at luxury hotels, but this was just as nice, only more personable. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and served in the solarium--lovely view of the wildlife!

The Painted Turtle is a real treat! We stayed in the Vintner's Retreat that was spacious and on the first floor. High quality and comfortable. Christine, the Innkeeper, is fabulous and her food is AWESOME! We had a delightful breakfast. The location is just south of downtown St. Joseph and across the street from Lookout Park on Lake Michigan. There...

The Painted Turtle Inn is a great place to stay. It's very comfortable accommodation in lovely surroundings. There are very large grounds surrounding the Inn and we enjoyed a walk around them while we were there. We stayed in the Dragonfly room which was really well appointed and quiet.

My wife and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised with our experience. Usually we do not stay at B&B's but now I can see the appeal. The breakfast in the morning was awesome all three days and they even brought out French press coffee to drink. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are...

Well, where do I start? Ok, the room - we had the Moonlight Serenade for 4 nights & loved it. It was spotless & extremely comfortable with a lovely ensuite which had an air bath as well as a large shower. The decor was superb too. The room had a large TV & an iPod docking station which was lovely...
