Awaken in the morning to the smell of fresh coffee, and the prospect of a delightful breakfast, beginning with freshly cut fruit, pastries, and several choices of hot entrees. At your leisure, join us for breakfast on fine china, in our elegant Turret dining room. After breakfast you can spend time relaxing in our main floor common areas with our family pets who are loved by all that stay. They may try to convince you to take them to your guest room but that is not allowed. All guest rooms are pet free.

About Our Rich History

Saravilla is a three story Dutch Colonial mansion built in 1894, originally an enticement for Sara Wright Lancashire to stay near her father after marriage. Located right in the middle of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, we are within walking distance of Alma College, the Michigan Masonic Home, and Alma’s original business district that offers restaurants, antique stores, and other services. Saravilla also caters to those visiting nearby Mt. Pleasant, home of Central Michigan University, and Soaring Eagle Casino.

Saravilla has gone through several evolutions since being built in 1894 as a private summer home. Along with being a private residence for other owners, it was used as a retirement home for both the Gleaners Insurance Society and Free Masons of Michigan, a 50 bed hotel and has been a bed and breakfast for over 30 years.
