I am a Michigan native with an appreciation for historic homes, a passion for good design and a love for the planet.
I moved to Kalamazoo from the Shores of Lake Michigan in 1990 to attend college. I remained in Kalamazoo because of the youthful energy, amazing people and an up and coming direction which has since been realized.
In my spare time, when I’m not combing the earth for treasures to use in my Kalamazoo Bed and Breakfast, I’m exploring life with my husband, Dean. We enjoy participating in recreational sports, the company of our friends & family and traveling.. All while being responsible stewards of the planet.
I’m also know around town as ‘The Painted Lady’, the proud owner of a painting, restoration and home improvement consulting business of 16 years called, Painted Lady.
Kara Keller purchased this cottage in 1996

We have had a fabulous time in your kottge. It was so cozy and I felt so comfortable. The kottage contains everything to make for a great time. I love the decor and furnishings, too.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We found the Driftwood Kottage, clean, comforatable and decorated with charm and taste. It was an extra touch to stock the fridge with breakfast items. The beds were very comfortable. Good job Kara!
Our family stayed in Kara's Kottages over 4th of July weekend. We rented Our Birch Bark and Our Drift Wood. The decor is very warm and welcoming. There were breakfast foods to meet a variety of tastes. I especially thought the granola was delicious. Kara thought of everything from Q-tips and Static Guard in the bathroom to sound machines in every bedroom. We ate one dinner out on the deck with plenty of room for 13 people. Thanks for your hospitality!
The stay at the kottage included everything we needed for a weekend trip. Parking and access to the unit was quick and easy. The unit was clean and very comfortable with all the amenities you'd expect at home. The location provides easy access to downtown. I'd recommend to anyone. A much better option than ever staying in a chain hotel.
Our family was in town for the WMU Graduation weekend. Great location. Plenty of room in the bedrooms and charmingly decorated with many small touches that made us feel at home. The owner was very kind and helpful. Thanks, Kara for a Great stay!
