More than a guest--you are a friend

I have been at the Belvedere multiple times over the last two years. From the very first visit to my latest stay last weekend (my 8th) I have always been impressed by the attentiveness of the staff--they often know what I need before I do. From charming rooms, comfortable rooms, lovely terrace, gardens and room to roam and never leave the property, this is the only place I want to stay in Saugatuck. The breakfasts are wonderful and the available dinners in the evening are first-rate. I have never been disappointed and it is a comfort knowing that the excellence is ongoing. That is why I keep coming back. We are more than staff and guest--we are friends.

Great charm and service in the Michigan countryside!

The Belvedere offers the modern comforts that the 21st century traveller requires, with the tranquil relaxation of a traditional B&B. It is clear that the owners carefully thought through the needs of their guests while attempting to maintain the old world feel that the inn and surrounding property afford. While staying at the Belvedere for a wedding this past weekend, we were greeted with fantastic service by the staff, clean and comfortable beds, and rooms with ample space. We will certainly be choosing the Belvedere for our next stay in West Michigan!
