Boyden House Inn
Ranked #2 of 9 Grand Haven B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 August 2013

I traveled a lot this summer and stayed in various B&Bs in Michigan. Boyden House was definitely the best. The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and beautiful. Breakfasts were delicious and healthy; the oatmeal was my favorite! The inn is conveniently located, close to the downtown and the bike path that goes to Holland. It is well worth the price!

We were visiting Grand Haven for a large wedding and booked the rooms over the carriage house, a suite, really. Large comfortable rooms and a nice mix of antique and modern furnishings and art. Others in the party stayed in the main house, and everyone seemed to be very happy. Finally, everyone who stays should try Mr. Tony's breakfast. Baked french toast and a wonderful baked oats dish were offered (along with great coffee and huge bowl of fresh fruit). It was not inexpensive but well worth the cost. We will definitely stay here again.

Surprised my husband with a romantic getaway for our 27th wedding anniversary ~ chose Boyden House because I wanted something different than a hotel. Found Boyden House via a website listing bed & breakfasts in the Grand Haven area and discovered there was a promotion going on as it was off-season. Called to make the reservation and was delighted to find out that the honeymoon suite was available. We were very happy with the room ~ private entrance and a small private balcony (could not use it as it was winter, but it was a nice touch), loveseat in front of an electric fireplace (now I want one for our master bedroom), comfy queen size bed, and a fabulous bathroom with a huge tub (candles were supplied and we took advantage of that special touch). Owners friendly, but not intrusive. Nice breakfast with a good selection of items (our choices included baked oatmeal with dried cherries and pistachios, vanilla yogurt with assorted toppings, french toast bake made with croissants, sausages etc.). My only concern is that breakfast is offered for a very limited time and would encourage perhaps 90 minute window of time). Would we go back? Most definitely! Great location (close to everything, yet private), delicious food, and a romantic room for couple time . . . a trifecta for couples :-)

We had such a wonderful stay here, such amazing rooms and the Jacuzzi was wonderful!! We loved the porch that was connected to the room.....Breakfast in bed was so nice!! Thanks Tony! We loved the snacks in the kitchen upstairs.... (We probably took a few too many!) :)....Thanks again for the lovely stay, we will DEF. be back again very soon!! Never have been to a B&B that was that nice before, also, the restaurant 22 Below was awesome too!

Room Tip: We saw them all, they all were great! The Honeymoon Suite was perfect and cozy, big bathroom!

My husband and I needed a relaxing getaway and Boyden House hit the spot. Our room was clean, comfortable and the house itself was very cool and well maintained. Our bed was so comfy, the location was close to downtown Grand Haven, and the breakfast was so delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and will be back :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the Safari Den and loved it, very spacious!

The girl who greeted us was very friendly. We were very surprised at breakfast being only available between 9 & 9.30am - very prescriptive. We were in the Safari Den which was a nice big room with excellent comfy bed BUT we had understood there was a bath in the en suite (described on website as "bath with shower") - probably lost in translation - think they should say "bathroom with shower". Location very good for town amenities. Lovely outside verandas. Breakfast a disappointment for us. First day souffle (with white wine & cream), second day french toast, third day quiche and fourth day back to souffle - not to the English palette at breakfast and only alternative cold hard boiled eggs and chipolata sausages (last day reheated). Would have appreciated choice of hot eggs and bacon. We felt it was over-priced as it cost more than our stays in hotels in Chicago and Grand Rapids prior to our Boyden House experience. We would have appreciated tea & coffee making facilities in the room. We never found creamer or milk in the shared kitchen. Unfortunately we also had to endure three nights of being woken up by smoke alarms malfunctioning!!

Room Tip: If you value a bath tub check the details carefully.

We recently stayed at Boyden house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the executive suite which had seating areas, a comfy bed, and plentiful sunshine. Lots of common areas and seating areas outside and around the house. We only enjoyed breakfast one morning because it is only served from 9-9:30 am and we missed it the other two mornings. (The Morning Star cafe is amazing btw!!) But, the one morning was delicious.
