The Boyden House is beautiful, and a very convenient walk to town! Shelly was friendly and a pleasure to be around. Our room was clean, and the accommodations were above and beyond! We loved the guest kitchen upstairs, fully stocked, all of the covered porches, and beautiful architecture of the home. We would definitely love to come back!
Wonderful, peaceful and inviting pace to stay. If you are a chocolate lover, this Bed & Breakfast is the place for you. Delicious breakfast each day along with gracious hosts. Walking distance to the downtown area and a short drive to the beach.
My wife and I took a little weekend get away and had the good fortune to book a room at the Port City Victorian Inn. We stayed in the Captain's Suite and my wife and I could not have been more impressed! The inn keepers are some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet and the Inn itself is an absolutely stunning Victorian mansion. Breakfast was excellent; they took great care to avoid certain foods with my wife's food allergy, and the food was delicious. We would stay here again in a heart beat!
I have been coming to Port City Inn every year for the last 22 years. As a director in the Miss America Organization I am in Muskegon each year in June for the Miss Michigan Pageant. This is always my first night stay and my favorite night of the entire week. Barb and Fred love this home and it shows in every detail. Highly recommended for any travel needs.
The Port City Victorian Inn is a lovely B&B. We stayed in the Alexander Rodgers Suite, which was spacious and elegant. I especially liked the canopy bed. The decor throughout the house was historic and beautiful, and the hosts were knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and filling; Barbara was very considerate about my lactose intolerance. We enjoyed renting the bicycles they had and riding the lakeshore bike path. All in all, a very nice get-away.
Boyden house was such a beautiful property. With amazing staff, gorgeous property, and very well kept rooms. This was our first bed and breakfast and we definitely will be searching for bed and breakfasts wherever we go. We highly recommend Boyden House!
Fred and Barb have a lovely, historic home which they are gracious enough to share with others with their B&B. This was our first B&B experience and will not be our last. Fred is quite the historian and we looked forward to the morning history lessons. Barb is a gracious host and a great cook. We wish we could have stayed longer!!
Darcy and I loved the room, with it's romantic bed and it's romantic shower/whirlpool; the hosts were very friendly and helpful, with knowledge of the history of the house and the area; the back porch offered a fantastic view of the moonrise, just as the front offered a nice view of the sunset; the location had nice places to walk to right from the room; we would do it again, and hope to get the opportunity one day.
I was fortunate to get a late reservation, and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my wife and daughter. Shelly was so pleasant and helpful and made our stay a pleasure. The accommodations were outstanding, beautiful 1800's built home with the right touch of updates. I understand the property has been just sold, and the owner is looking to keep the old charm with some new enhancements. Definitely would stay again when back in Grand Haven.
My husband and I spent 2 nights in the captain's room. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire place, and the view of Lake Muskegon from the balcony. Barbara fixed two wonderful breakfasts while we were there. Loved all of the details in the historic home!
Hubby and I thotoughly enjoyed our romantic getaway at this most exquisite location!! Innkeepers warm and welcoming, just delightful! Room was the most beautiful we've ever stayed in (30+ years' worth of traveling! Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Highly recommend!
This was our first B&B stay, and were not sure what to expect. We were very pleased with beauty and history of the house. It is close enough to the downtown shops and resturants that you could walk which is always nice. We stayed in the Executive Suite which was very large and clean, and quiet. Our hostess was very nice and made an excellent breakfast as well. We would recommend the Boyden House to anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet stay.
We were first timers to the Grand Haven area. We celebrated our anniversary and could not have been more pleased with the Boyden House and the area in general. The Boyden House was absolutely beautiful and quaint and Shelly our hostess - was very accommodating. She makes delicious homemade breakfast and keeps the entire house clean as can be. We stayed in the Safari Den and we never wanted to leave the room - the bed and the ambiance was beyond comfortable!!! Plenty of parking and athough the house was full this weekend - we had tons of privacy. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful - it's 2 blocks from downtown Grand Haven. Even though it was chilly we walked when we could. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyonee - we fell in love with it and would most definitely return! Thank you! Carlos and Diana
The house was very. Beutiful and was well decorated. Breakfasts was excellent. Conversation with owners was refreshing and comfortable. The dogs where friendly and cute. Overall was an excellent stay,.look forward to staying again.
