Saravilla is a three story Dutch Colonial mansion built in 1894, originally an enticement for Sara Wright 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 1894 (Masonic Home, retirement venue for an insurance company, private residence) and has been a bed and breakfast for 27 years. Current innkeepers, Gerry and Roland, purchased the property in 2014 as their third inn, the others having been in Virginia and Massachusetts. They bring to the Inn experiences from their 20-year career in Europe, the Middle East and Asia in international education, as well as enthusiasm for providing an exceptional B&B experience. Many of Sara villa’s public and guest rooms also offer antiques and artifacts from the innkeepers’ extensive travels.
