My boyfriend and I planned a trip to Grand Haven, and we were hesitant on booking our stay through a Bed and Breakfast; as we were concerned that we would be forced to make small talk with other people staying there. However, the Boyden House is set up in such a way that you can have privacy at breakfast and/or meet new people if desired. We stayed in the executive sweet, and we were pleased with the room size and comfort level of the bed. My boyfriend proposed to me that weekend and even received help from the innkeeper, Shelly, to keep it a secret. We definitely will seek out the Boyden House again upon returning to Grand Haven!

We loved our stay. IT was our first time at a B&B and we would do it again, the little touches were a delight the host was lovely and her breakfast was delicious. If your looking for a romantic get away or just relaxation and fun the Boyden house Inn will not disappoint.

It's a wonderful old house. We choose one of the outside suites and it was very private. Breakfast was good and the location is very close to all of the action of a beach town.

This B&B is well located near downtown Grand Haven and its many unique shops and restaurants. We stayed 2 nights in the Carriage House while in town for a wedding. Plenty of room for 4 people and a nice mini-kitchen and sitting area. The bathroom was is a bit cramped. The morning breakfasts were superb and covered the tastes for the adults and child in our party. The main house is well decorated and inviting. The Carriage House suited our needs very well. Service was outstanding. If the occasion arises we will take advantage of their hospitality again.

The Boyden House is beautiful, and a very convenient walk to town! Shelly was friendly and a pleasure to be around. Our room was clean, and the accommodations were above and beyond! We loved the guest kitchen upstairs, fully stocked, all of the covered porches, and beautiful architecture of the home. We would definitely love to come back!
