Best B&B experience ever

5 on December 08, 2014

I needed to travel to Frankenmuth MI on business so I booked a room for my wife and I at The Historic Webster House for one night and it was absolutely amazing. The house is beautiful, the service was exceptional and the food was really amazing. Nothing was left out from the moment you walked in the front door. The staff went above and beyond expectations. Rooms were very clean and the beds were super comfortable. I will definitely be back someday and would recommend this B&B to anyone!!!

Our 3rd year wedding anniversary.

Our room was a spectacular site. The house is just as warm and cozy as it was on our last three visits. Breakfast was very good and presented very well. Keep up the great job. We'll be back next November.

There should be a 6 star button

We had a wonderful night at the Webster House. Our room was not large, but was clean and comfortable. The service was outstanding. We're already discussing when we can make another visit.

The house is immaculately restored with antique furniture and lights. The food was excellent and they provide afternoon cheese, meats, and crackers. There is a spa and sauna available also. They people are friendly and helpful. We will be back!

Away again

Back for a second year to the Historic Webster House in this serene location of Bay City. Even better the second time as we were again impressed by the attention to detail by inn keeper Paul and owner Deborah. Breakfasts were superb each day. Freshly baked cookies were always on hand, along with fruit throughout the day. Additionally, at 4;30 each day was a splendid wine and cheese array, with shrimp one day, smoked salmon another, to give each guest a chance to mingle with others. Always Paul, or Deborah on hand to offer insights into the rich history of Bay City and to offer suggestions on places to dine in the evening. Rooms are inviting - each of them. We will be staying next year in a third different one. A special place - so lovingly cared for. We will be returning again next year.

Super accommodations and SUPERB food

We stayed for two nights in the Nodoko room. It was very comfortable with a private bath containing a jacuzzi tub and a shower stall. The Webster House does not give you doughnuts for breakfast, you get a full three-course gourmet meal worthy of very high-priced restaurants. Wonderful stay and highly recommended.

Wonderful B&B and we will keep coming back!!

We came to the Historic Webster House for our anniversary and could not believe we found exactly what the photos show. The beautiful restored house, the incredible rooms, decor, attention to detail and special nuances were unbelievable!! Our host Debra and Innkeeper Paul were so pleasant and helpful. They even had a Happy Anniversary cake in our room when we arrived. Visiting with the other guests was such a refreshing change from the insincerity of a regular hotel. We are so glad to have found this special place and have plans to come back and stay longer. Thank you Historic Webster House for such great hospitality!! Marjon & Dan

The Webster House is beautiful and the wonderful staff makes it even a better stay. The house is kept in immaculate condition and Chef Brandon does perfect breakfasts. Hosts, Deborah and Paul are kind and make your experience the best it can be. My husband and I would recommend the Webster House to anyone looking for a quiet getaway to relax.

Pleasant Surprise!!

We found this beautiful B&B on the spur of the moment and we were very impressed by the entire experience. Not only was the room perfect for a nights stay but the ambiance and the friendliness of Paul and Debbie made the trip worthwhile. We recommend this stop for anyone looking for a nice B&B in this area!!!!
