1st Annual West Michigan B&B Cookie Tour!

Join the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast and 8 other popular B&Bs to Celebrate the Joy of Holiday Baking and Decorating with Private Tours, Gifts, Shopping, Specials and Cookies Galore!

Imagine stepping back in time onto the set of a Hallmark Christmas movie. Artfully decorated Christmas trees, garlands galore and special surprises around every corner. A feast for your eyes, and your tummy! Innkeeper Lisa worked for Hallmark Cards in their creative department for 10 wonderful years. Lisa has taken pure joy in decorating the Cocoa Cottage B&B in holiday splendor true to it’s 1912 heritage for your enjoyment!

For two very special weekends in December — Dec. 7-8 and Dec. 14-15 — the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast has teamed up with 8 other popular West Michigan bed and breakfasts from Whitehall to Ludington, and invite you into their beautifully decorated homes to experience the joy of baking – and tasting – during the holidays, without the mess in your own kitchen!
