Excellent nights stay in a beautiful B&B

4.4 on August 04, 2015

Enjoyed our stay very much. The owners were awesome! Food was great. Hope to go back soon.


Our First B&B Experience

5 on May 28, 2015

This was our very first Bed and Breakfast experience and we are thrilled we choose the Historic Webster House. We were celebrating our anniversary and we had a few Costco BedAndBreakfast.com gift cards to use. After looking at several choices, we choose the Webster House because of the location, the spa option, great reviews, and it was a historic house with gorgeous rooms. The house is huge and all the historic details added lots of charm and character to the overall feel of the place. From the moment we arrived, Deb made us feel very welcomed and the entire staff was very friendly. When we got to our room we had a beautiful cake with “Happy Anniversary” written on it. We stayed in the Magistrate room and added the spa package. The room was very beautiful and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and probably the best breakfast I have ever eaten. Paul is an amazing chef! They are very accommodating when it comes to dietary needs. I don’t eat red meat or pork, so they went out of their way to give me chicken instead. There were wine and snacks each evening as well. We very highly recommend adding the spa package! It is worth every penny!!! The Webster House was just perfect for us. It was an amazing experience and we can’t wait to go back!!!


Cozy, charming little B&B

We're making our way through the Diamond Collection B&B's in Michigan and this was our next stop. We did enjoy our stay quite a bit! We arrived and were shown around the Inn as well as given warm cookies and wine later on. The entire house was very elegant looking and just had a warm feeling to it. The only downside was that the bed was VERY loud! Even just rolling from one side to another was waking me up during the night. I'm sure the neighboring rooms just loved us... Aside from that, it was a great time and we would stay again.


Definitely would return and stay!! Loved it!!

5 on May 06, 2015

We reviewed dozens of B&B's on line before choosing Webster House and were so pleased with our stay! We chose this beautiful victorian historic house because of the Asian decor (my husband is a big fan) and it was close to many destinations such as Frankenmuth, Bronner's, the lake, Antique Warehouse (we never made it there) and other places we didn't see. We want to go back again. The innkeeper's were so thoughtful and made sure our stay was excellent. The bed was ultra comfortable with lots of feather pillows, bed topper and comforter. The fireplace and champagne/flowers my husband ordered were so romantic. The woodwork, stained glass windows, drapes and decor were beautiful. The breakfast was delicious with more than enough to eat and looked like it was from a recipe book photo. Would we stay again? Definitely! They made us feel like family and we need to go back and see what we missed. Scott and Sandee


The Webster House stay as a gift from our kids. The best gift we ever got!

Beautiful house! Wonderful accommodations! Five star breakfast! Beautiful people!


Great Hospitality and Customer Service still exist!!!

5 on April 05, 2015

From the initial phone call to Deborah inquiring about availability and room descriptions she was nothing but professional and very kind. I spoke to her several times about restaurants in the area, massages, and general information about the house and each time she was patient and took out as much time as needed to answer my questions. The customer service is second to none. Deborah and the Historic Webster House are very attentive to guest. Phone calls are answered (not a voice mail) and calls are returned promptly (if applicable). The House is beautiful and well kept with each room displaying is own level of charm. The full service breakfast was amazing. I will return as often as I can as I have spoken to several friends, colleagues, and family about the wonderful stay and personal touches provided by Deborah and her staff at the Historic Webster House.


Beautiful historic place, many wonderful details~~

4.8 on March 22, 2015

Just a fabulous place! Deborah was a fantastic hostess who greeted us upon our arrival and provided a personal tour of the Webster House. Our room was great, clean, well appointed with plenty of special details ( thick towels, soft sheets, flameless candles, custom robes, etc.) i didn't want to leave and we will definitely return at a future date. I recommend a room with a jacuzzi, it makes it very special.


Fabulous Stay at the Webster House

5 on March 13, 2015

Upon arrival at the Webster House we were greeted with a smile and a glass of wine! What a treat after a long drive. The rooms were gorgeous and the breakfast was delicious. I will make a return stay next time I am in the area!


The Best B&B EVER!

5 on January 26, 2015

Came to celebrate my birthday. The place was even more gorgeous than the pictures (don't even know how that's possible)! The staff was tremendous, the stay was SO enjoyable, the breakfast was divine and gorgeous, and I found many small details of service were not overlooked. I felt like a queen. I was treated SO well and received such GENEROUS service... I will be back most definitely. Loved it!!!


A perfect stay

4.8 on January 19, 2015

I have been to The Webster House three times now and every time it is so hard to leave! My room was wonderful, the wine and appetizers in the evening and of course the lovely breakfast. The house is amazing and you'll want to take pictures for sure! I can't wait to go back. Helpful hint: If you stay on a Sunday, some of the best restaurants are closed. I'd stay on a different day so you can get the full Bay City experience.
