Our amazing get away at The Webster House.

4.8 on January 08, 2017

We had just the most amazing time staying at The Webster House. The home was beautifully restored to its original glory in everyway. You can tell that each and every room was careful decorated to the time period. Staying here was like being in a different world. When we arrived we were greeted by a young girl, she was extremely polite and gave a tour of the home. She spoke to the fact that we would be the only ones staying that evening, so they had upgraded our room. She also sat out wine and snacks for us. We stayed in the Miss Yunji room. This room was decorated with an oriental theme, and was very nice size. On one end of the room was a fire place in between two floor to ceiling windows, beautiful original hardwood floors and very nice ensuite. We had also reserved the spa and sauna room. Breath-taking room for such an old home, they did an amazing job to make it as comfortable and inviting. The exposed foundation wall, was my favorite detail of it by far (so well thought out). The jetted tub was huge and so relaxing, as well as a large shower. Being down in the spa and sauna area, you feel as if you are in a castle. When we awoke the next morning, we could already smell the coffee and breakfast cooking. We made our way downstairs, where we met Donna. This lady just made our stay!! Not only was her breakfast of croissants with butter, fruit and granola with home-made almond whipped creme (which was so delicious) scrambled eggs, sausage, home-made blueberry crepes, and amazingly delectable cheesy hashbrowns amazing, but so was her service and spirit. After our breakfast, Miss Donna took the time and showed us every detail of this home. (Me, being a lover of homes such as this, I was in awe) We honestly had just the best time here, and we can not wait to go back for our anniversary. I would recommend The Webster House in a heartbeat. I can not wait to make this beautiful bed & breakfast a yearly tradition!

New years

This is a beautiful and warm home, they did an amazing job bring it back to life. I've never stayed at a B&B before and I chose this one because I love old houses and never pass on a chance to see the inside of one, but to stay in one it is even better! I got to stay here for new years this year and it was the best. The rooms are amazing the beds... there are no words, and the food is homemade always the best. I didn't feel like I was staying somewhere. I felt like I stayed with someone in their home. welcomed as a friend. I would come back and always recommend this one to everyone.

Romantic and Relaxing New Years Eve

This was our third time staying at the Historic Webster House and second time in the Keep. We always love our stay. The house is kept extremely clean, the staff are warm and welcoming and the breakfast is always delicious. The keep is romantic and allows for a nice relaxing evening and love that we get the whole basement to ourselves. We would highly recommend staying here.

Second Visit

4.8 on November 27, 2016

We first stayed at Webster House 2 years ago, and our stay was so wonderful that we returned this weekend for our anniversary. The rooms are beautiful and impeccably clean, the house itself is gorgeously-appointed, and the hosts go the extra mile. As a bonus, it is walking distance to downtown restaurants and the riverfront. We will definitely be back again!

Excellent, lovely, B&B for a getaway

I had a fantastic time at the Webster House. It is filled with History. The morning breakfast was far better than any place in town. (from the coffee to the gourmet french toast). Thank you for making my visit so special!

Great layover

Two nights of relaxation! Could not have been happier w our stay, pristine B and B with several areas to enjoy outside your room. Walking distance to antiques and restaurants. We had to leave early on our second morning and there were delicious out the door fruit and yogurt and granola to go cups waiting for us!

Summer Visit to Webster House

5 on August 04, 2016

My wife and I have spent a great deal of time traveling in the states and staying at bed and breakfast inns. The Webster house was by far the best overall that we have ever stayed at. The restoration of a beautiful historic house is of the highest standards. The attention to detail by the inn keepers and the owners is again of the highest standards. Water and drinks made available in every room, and wonderful hors d'oeuvres were put out with wine for our early evening visit in the parlor. There was very good coffee and tea available at all times. Breakfast was very well done - quiche with sausage, fine potato salad, and yogurt with fresh fruit. The property is exquisite and each room looked to be inviting in all respects. The town of Bay City holds many things to do and plenty of places to dine. The city is refreshingly full of renovated and restored properties giving one the feeling that this is a place to be. My wife and I have put the Webster House in Bay City on our list of getaway weekend locations. Thank you Steve and Debbie for the wonderful stay. John and Diana
