Breakfast

Our home-style breakfast is served in the dining room or on the porch and features freshly prepared, seasonal and locally sourced food. It is always our goal to bring you the best breakfast in mid-Michigan so that you can start your day’s adventures (or relaxation) off right. Let the aroma of baking scones, sizzling meat, and fresh-ground coffee greet you as you begin your day.

Entrees are chef’s choice and alternate daily between a sweet or savory dish. The main entree is often accompanied with a side such as apple-maple sausage, thick-sliced bacon or hickory smoked ham.

Our individual tables are perfect for two, comfortable for four, and provide a personal and intimate dining experience.

What our guests say:

his was our first B&B experience so anything else will have some high standards with which to compete! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we felt welcomed, comfortable and were always treated with kindness and respect. The ambiance was warm and homey. The owners made sure that all of our needs were met — they left no stone unturned. My husband and I will definitely come back!

What our guests say:

The innkeepers were so accommodating to our party of 7, which included 3 young kids. Although we got up late every morning, they always gave us a warm breakfast. They are so knowledgeable of the area and could make recommendations for places to shop or tour. The rooms were so spacious and well appointed. While we were in our room, we never heard any of the other guests. The Offenbakers are doing everything right! Thank you for a wonderful B & B experience. We will be back next year.

What our guests say:

We recently hosted rehearsal dinner at the Nordic Pineapple. I would highly recommend this venue. Greg and Kjersten love this home and love to share it. They took all the worry of the evening away from me. It is elegant but comfortable and they are willing to make sure it is exactly what you desire. Thank you for preserving this beautiful home and its history in St Johns Michigan!

What our guests say:

First time ever going to a bed & breakfast… I will NEVER stay in a hotel again… the Nordic pineapple has such a homey/family atmosphere, it’s hard to leave. Kjersten & Greg went above & BEYOND to make sure my wife & I were at home & didn’t need anything.

Check it out!!! You will NOT be disappointed.

What our guests say:

We had a wonderful experience at the Nordic Pineapple when booking a dinner event after my father’s visitation. Kjersten and Greg were very accommodating and happy to help us with special touches in honor of Dad. Thank you for all that you did to make the night so wonderful!

What our guests say:

This was our first experience with a bed-and-breakfast and I don’t think any other bed and breakfast will be able to compare to the experience given to my fiance and I this weekend. Kjersten and Greg went above and beyond to suit our accommodations and make us feel at home and welcome. Definitely will be back as soon as possible thanks again for everything.

What our guests say:

Can’t say enough about this place. It was awesome. The host could not have been more gracious, and the home was incredible. Great attention to detail, and everything was maintained well, both inside and out. Would recommend this place to anybody.
