“Definitely a place worth revisiting.”
Reviewed 22 September 2010

I was here some 20 years ago and have recommended it to many friends-finally-we are back for a weekend. The Bed and Breakfast, managed by a personable husband and wife truly enjoy their "missions" as hosts.
The Oxbow Arts Colony----do not miss it.
Dinner at the bar at the historic Butler was served perfectly by Dave, a 15 year employee.
As I wrote above, definitely worth revisiting.

Arrived in the city the day before July 4 with no reservations! We worried because this was the only lodging available. Rooms were small for the price but sufficient and very clean. WONDERFUL staff. Provided a special breakfast due to our health issues even though we said it was unnecessary. Pool located right off the harbor on site. Walking distance to town. Good info on their website.

Perfect Getaway! We have traveled a lot and have been to Saugatuck many times-This is the best Inn in the area! Great breakfast, short walk to everything and they have a pool right on the Harbor. The Inn is very well decorated and very clean. It is expensive, but a very good value compared with other places we have stayed in Saugatuck. We are going back this summer when the pool is open and can't wait!

Just returning from our trip to Saugatuck. It was all we hoped it would be except for the beach...too chilly and in the middle of July! Lots of good shopping, restaurants and wine!

As for the accomodations, I must say, for the $288.00 we spent per night, we didn't feel we got our monies worth. Long story short, with the Saugatuck Harbor Inn being run by a corporation, we think it lacked the personal attention. Not to mention, the room had a unsavory smell, the flat screen t.v. was very small with only a few select channels ( which included mostly informercial channels all day ), breakfast was late ( and cold ) upon arrival every morning, the smoke alarms were activated each day they cooked, we were never notified of the code to activate / deactivate the front door lock and a few of the occupants were even locked out in the middle of the night. Since there was no one on premise it made it difficult when there were a problem. The "view of the harbor" consisted of sitting on the floor looking out the window, between the condo's across the street. Unfortunately I don't think, for this kind of money, we would ever recommend, nor return to this property. There are far too many other choices in the area for the money. Unfortunately they were not available the weekend we were...

( while rating, the only option allowed was "excellent" but I would rate this property as "fair" )

Good location, clean, nicely decorated. Mgmt didn't tell any of the guests entry codes, info re breakfast. Was no one on-site to handle issues. Late night bangings at door, from guests who couldn't get in, people coming in off street due to unlocked doors, fire alarms beeping thru the night. Conversation at breakfast was all about poor service. Simple information sheet, or on-site staff would alleviate problems. Mgmt not very responsive to calls from several guests weekend we were there. would not stay there again. Mgmt asked me to tell all the guests the info code.....thought I was a guest, not staff. Very weird.

Our family rented the entire Saugatuck Harbor Inn for our families annual reunion and it was the best! This house had 7 bedrooms (three of which were suites), 7 full baths and an incredible pool on the harbor. Our family had a blast each night strolling into the downtown for outdoor music, dancing and great restaurants. The pool and deck overlooking the SS Kewatin was so peaceful.

We are going back in July 2009, please don't take our week! Have fun in this great town and location, you won't be disappointed.
