Step inside the Cocoa Cottage period restored 1912 Arts and Crafts bungalow, and you will be transported back to a time of simplicity, authenticity, and enduring style.
The Arts & Crafts movement started as a backlash to the Victorian era and the Industrial Revolution. Simple lines and natural colors are hallmarks of the Arts & Crafts period. The inherent beauty was in the materials used to create the object and the craftsmanship of the artist who created it.
We spent 10 years lovingly restoring the Cocoa Cottage and its gardens. The Cocoa Cottage is designed and decorated to be inviting with an uncluttered, comfortable and relaxing style.
A delicious, hot hearty breakfast awaits you at the Cocoa Cottage Whitehall. Start with our delicious breads, (chocolate of course!) fresh strawberries and our Mama Tallarico’s Hot Fudge. Don’t forget to request our indulgent hot chocolate.
A lite breakfast is also available. Cottage Eggs, our signature hot breakfast, is undoubtedly the most photographed breakfast ever! Guests rush to their phones to share their breakfast on social media and hold onto memories of this morning’s favorite, long after it has been devoured! Almost too pretty to eat, just dig in and enjoy.
Nestled in the heart of Whitehall Michigan’s Theater District, a quaint blend of properties in downtown Whitehall, the Cocoa Cottage is the perfect location to walk to many nearby attractions. Our Jay-Walk Theater Package, named for the Historic Howmet Theater, is the perfect way to savor the charm and character of this unique 100+ year old theater. Not a bad seat in the house and we will reserve one for you.
Before enjoying the theater, the Cocoa Cottage is within walking distance to restaurants, craft brewery, year round arts events, festivals, beautiful parks and hiking trails. Whitehall Michigan is a quiet, unassuming community that is extraordinarily friendly and welcoming.
Just across the river, our sister city, Montague Michigan compliments the quaint charm of our community, Whitehall. The Book Nook and Java Shop, Montague Antiques, Lipka’s Soda Fountain and the Farmers Market add to our list of local favorites. Come and explore for yourself. We will guide you along your way.
Whether spring, summer, fall or winter the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast is considered by most to be the best place to stay in Whitehall and West Michigan. Check-in as our guest and check-out as our friend!
