Jam Making and a New Friend

Hi! It’s the time of year to make jam’s and jelly’s!  The past two weeks I have been making Peach Pie, Cherry Amaretto, Strawberry Cointreau and Blackberry Chambord.  We just had a good weekend with Icebreaker in South Haven and are getting ready for Valentine’s Day.  Mike is picking up 18 eggs per day on average, so no chicken winter letdown this year.

Before we forget to mention, Seymour has a new lady friend! We got her from a friend and her name is Yazmin!  She is a real lover like Seymour, and is looking forward to meeting all of you soon.  Yazmin is about six months old and if you can believe it, is even friendlier than Seymour!  So let’s all welcome Yazmin.  Take care and we’ll see you soon.

Valentine’s Day Special

Hello Everyone,

This year Valentine’s Day offers a great opportunity for our guests to celebrate! Because Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday this year, we are offering our Valentine’s Day special the weekends before and after the actual holiday.

Our B&B is specially decorated for this special time for lovers, and we will be offering special Valentine’s Day themed breakfasts. We have fireplaces in all of the rooms, which make it extra cozy. To add a special touch all of the rooms will have a complimentary bottle of wine, chocolates and a flower bouquet for you and your special one. We will be offering a Wine and Hors d’oeuvres party for our guests from 4 – 6 PM. To take advantage of this offer reservations must be made at least one week prior to your stay with us.

So, come join us for a very special weekend to remember.

We look forward to seeing you.

Patty and Mike

Seymour House


Well, we’ve had quite the winter so far with plenty of snow and cold. Seymour house has received over two feet of snow. Karma, our rescue dog, loves it jumping through the snow rather than walking. Mr. Seymour the cat is older and stays in his kitty condo under his heater and on his pillows in the garage, only venturing out for his personal needs. Mom, me, is making various jams and researching new breakfast dishes to serve you. This week it’s peach pie jam.

We have been quiet in January, so far, but February is a pretty exciting month around here. Starting February 2nd thru 4th the Icebreaker weekend happens in South Haven, a fun event for those who love winter want to join in on the fun. Here are some of the events.

  1. Ice skating at our covered skating rink.
  2. A chili cook off competition
  3. Cardboard Sled Races
  4. A Pub slide
  5. Horse drawn wagon rides
  6. Ice sculpture competition

Go to the South Haven Chamber of Commerce website for details https://www.southhavenmi.com . Seymour House has decided to join in the celebration with a warm up afternoon party Saturday from 4pm-6pm.

We are offering any of our guests a $25 gift certificate for a future stay if you send us selfies of you at the Icebreaker Festival. We will use these photos on our website and facebook page to show others how much fun you had!

I’ll leave you now , please look for info on our Plans for both Valentines weekends.
