Great place - wish we could've stayed longer

4.4 on July 08, 2014

This place was perfect. It had all the basics - parking, central location, easy to find, clean, courteous hosts, free wifi. But what made it special was the charm of the house and the location itself and the thoughtfulness of how it was all put together. Really regret not being able to stay longer, and we plan to go back. As a bonus - we are from Seattle and the coffee at breakfast was perfectly done (I would say "the best I've had in the midwest" but that would be damning with faint praise). Also the breakfast wasn't just a cold donut or other pastry but was actually a delicious hot souffle. I am super picky and honestly just can't say enough good things about this place. Stayed at the Harbor House Inn the following night (long story as to why and how this got booked this way) and was absolutely full of regret for that stay. Boyden House is a great experience all around.

Visited grand haven Michigan and stayed at the Boyden House


Great Location but quiet

4.8 on June 28, 2014

This was my 12-year old daughter's first stay at a B&B. She was surprised how much she enjoyed staying in an "old house". I would definitely consider staying there again. The location is great -- walking distance to town, the beach & the fountain, but the area is very quiet and peaceful. The owner had great suggestions for places to go after listening to our priorities. An added bonus is some of the artwork in the B&B is by the owners' daughter.


Post wedding stay in Grand Haven

4.8 on June 23, 2014

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the B & B after our wedding in Grand Haven. Honeymoon suite was cozy and the breakfast was delicious! Also convenient location and walking distance from downtown shops and restaurants. Would gladly recommend and would love to return in the future! Thank you!


Relaxing weekend
