My daughter and I stayed in Anastasia's Room while attending the Unity Christian Music Festival and loved it! Fred and Barbara were wonderful and gracious hosts! Visiting with the new resident puppies was definitely a bonus. We both truly enjoyed the back deck and look forward to visiting again in 2014!

My husband and I spent the weekend in the Captain's suite at the Port City Victorian Inn. My husband did the Luge and we attended the Party in Your Parka event at the Muskegon Sports Complex. It was so nice to come back to the warmth of the B&B including the easy to use gas fireplace in our room. Breakfast was at 9am and started with a beautiful yogurt parfait. When we checked in Barbara asked if we had any requests or preferences for breakfast and had noted my dietary restrictions that I added to our reservations. The decor at the B&B was so beautiful. There were so many details, but everything still felt fresh and uncluttered for the amount of decor. I would highly recommend spending your weekend in Muskegon at the Port City Victorian Inn.

My boyfriend and I were visiting from Florida. We had a great romantic night away at this cute and cozy B&B. We stayed in the Captain's Room which had a giant jacuzzi tub next to the bed and the warmest fire. The ambiance was just right, with the fire glowing in the background while enjoying champagne in the hot tub to warm up from the freezing temperatures outside. Our room had a fantastic view of the lake with a cute little porch. It also had a sitting room with a couch and bench for added comfort. The B&B is within miles of some fantastic restaurants. For dinner, we chose to go to Hearthstone, for its eclectic menu. Great food, great wine, great atmosphere. Barb and Fred were fantastic hosts! Breakfast was out of this world! Barb made fruit parfet, eggs, bacon, pancakes and home-made apple cinnamon pecan syrup. The syrup was truly delicious, I've never had anything like it. We enjoyed their company and chit chatted about the house's history and unique architecture. We had such a great time. If you're in the area, you should definitely stay at the Port City Victorian Inn! We will definitely come again.

Myself, my husband and our teenage granddaughter at Port City Victorian Inn in October 2013 for four days and we were delighted with the unique excellance of the rooms and attention to detail. We had travelled from England, stayed a short time in Texas and then travelled up to Michigan to visit friends. This home has been furnished with love and perceptionn by the wonderful Christian couple, who made this visit to Muskegon so unforgettable. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and welcoming. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for our hosts and the breakfasts were delicious, Barbara constantly endeavouring to see that our individual tastes were catered for. We would not even consider any other accommodation in Muskegon, if we were to visit again. We would have loved to stay for longer, it was so restful and we felt at home the whole time we were there.
