Super accommodations and SUPERB food

5 on September 09, 2014

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

Best B&B experience

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!!!!

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast, Warm and Welcoming staff!

My husband and I would highly recommend the Webster House! It is a beautifully restored bed and breakfast with a warm and caring staff. From homemade cookies when you arrive, to a wine and cheese reception each evening, not even the smallest detail is overlooked. The rooms are comfortable and exquisitely decorated. Each morning breakfast was a delicious three course meal. The chef is outstanding and happy to cater to any special dietary needs. The house is immaculately clean yet we felt welcomed as if we were family. The Webster House is the fourth or fifth bed and breakfast we have stayed in and we can say without hesitation that our visit here was by far the best we have experienced.

Amazing First B&B Expierence

5 on May 12, 2014

Having never stayed at a B&B before we didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be better then we could have thought. There were so many personal touches you just don't get in a big hotel both in the rooms as well wine and coffee. The breakfast was amazing which catered to my diet restrictions (vegan) and it included mimosa's which was a great way to start the day. Overall great relaxing mini vacation and we would love to come again.

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy to host guests that have never stayed in a bed and breakfast before. It certainly was our pleasure to have you stay with us and am glad we were able to accommodate your dietary requests. We look forward to seeing you again if ever in the area.

Great stay

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home, the food and service was excellent! The only down side to the whole experience was the location, the surrounding area did not have a lot to offer. However a short drive to Frankenmuth is possible.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review we certainly appreciate it. Bay City does offer many activities that are geared towards the summer months such as River Roar, Juried art shows on the water, the largest 4th of July fireworks display in Michigan. If you have the opportunity to come back in the warmer months you will find a lot of fun activities and we'd love to see you again.
