We are proud to have been voted “Best in the Midwest” for the second year in a row by Arrington’s B&B journal, Inn Traveler! You will feel as if you have stepped through a time portal as you enter through the doors of what once was Alexander Rodgers, Sr.'s 1877 Queen Anne Style Victorian mansion. This splendid vintage turn-of-the-century mansion features old world elegance, grace and charm! Port City Victorian Inn is located off the bluff of Muskegon Lake - just minutes from the downtown business district, Lake Michigan, and across the lake from the Muskegon State Park Winter Sports Complex. Today, this beautiful 136 year-old, five bedroom home proudly welcomes guests to enjoy its old world elegance, grace and charm which characterizes this splendid vintage turn-of-the century mansion.

This year will be our 3rd. Every time we stay, we are planning to come back before we even leave. Atmosphere is charming and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. The food is superb and rooms are very clean.

You can't help but be impressed with the splendor of this 137 year old home. The rooms are some of the nicest I have ever seen. I would go back there whenever I have to go through Muskegon.

Barbara and Fred are wonderful hosts. They really take the time to make you feel at home. The Port City Victorian is absolutely breathtaking. It is definatley a place we will be returning to. They take pride in there home and it shows. Barbara went above and beyond to help me make this weekend very special for my husband and I. We were there for our 10 year Anniversary and have so many new and wonderful memories that I can hold her accountable for. Again Barbara and Fred thank you from the bottom of our hearts Jim and Rachel Herwig So. Milw, WI

MF and I have just completed a two week trip around the upper midwest, including staying in seven different bed and breakfasts. The Port City Inn is among our top stays. Lovely old house, well-set-up room (rather dark walls, but that's part of the decor). We were greeted by two inquisitive and VERY small dogs (about as big as my shoe, but I wear size 18). They obediently pulled back on command, but not until my wife fell in love with them. Good night of sleep, fairly decent place to set up my laptop and check email, and they served us breakfast early because we had to leave to catch the ferry! Fred and Barb(?) were great hosts ... MF said she liked them the best of the various hosts we had. Perhaps the biggest drawback is that the handrail on the steps up to the second floor was rather low. Conclusion: if we come back to Muskegon we'll stay here again.

Best part of this B&B is it's proximity to the bicycle trail from downtown Muskegon to Pere Marquette park on Lake Michigan. The house is in great condition and immaculately decorated and kept, the Innkeepers were warm and welcoming with conversation and service. As a coffee snob I was let down at breakfast, but the juice was fantastic. Pancakes and bacon with some fruit so nothing fancy.

This beautiful and spotless B&B has been fashioned with the comfort of guests first and foremost. We stayed in the Queen Anne’s room which had a great view of Lake Muskegon as the sun rose and set each day, and we were impressed with the ability to completely control the temperature in our suite with just a touch of our handheld remote. Our bathroom was equipped with a two person bubble tub which was a great way to unwind after a day at the beach. We have stayed in several B&Bs before, but the maturity of this B&B is on display as soon as you enter the home in the multitude of beautiful antiques, Victorian décor, and the detailed history of this home originally built by one of the founding industrial fathers of Muskegon in 1877. Kudos to Fred & Barb who have meticulously preserved the history of this home for their guests and the City of Muskegon. A great front porch with a view of the lake and a second story deck both amply equipped with comfortable furniture and lots of flowers provide an excellent outdoor oasis to kick back & relax. The inn was full during our stay so our breakfasts were not as elaborate as what we were expecting, but as a parent of six children I completely understand meals of individuality cannot be produced for many people at the same time. Maybe next time, we will be back………..

The Port City Victorian Inn, bed and breakfast, was ornate... everywhere we looked in our room, in the parlors, in the dining rooms, there were figurines, floral arrangements, and furnishing to capture the eye and imagination of a bygone period. This is not a place for someone who would have problems with visual sensory over load. For it is amazingly well decorated throughout. We stayed in the Rose Room, it was most comfortable, and well appointed: from the wall coverings to the canopy over the bed. to the ornate lamps. The upper level deck at the rear of the building... WOW what a great gathering space, relaxing space, quiet space. The only draw back was that we had places to go to, people to see, while in the Muskegon area and did not spend enough time at the Inn. This Victorian Inn requires more time, in it, to really appreciate the treasure that it is.

I stayed at the Port City Victorian Inn with my wife for our second anniversary and had a delightful time. Fred and Barb made us feel like we were part of the family. Breakfast was different each day, keeping our taste buds on their toes. The PCVI was a great respite between our antiquing or sunset trips to the beach. My wife and I are already planning out visit to the PCVI next year!

My wife and I spent two nights here and were very happy with the accommodations and breakfast. Fred and Barbara (and their dogs) are great!
