We decided at the last moment to get away and researched Bed & Breakfast places. We were very lucky to find the Historic Webster House! It was a dream come true. Deborah was a gracious hostess and greeted us upon our arrival and provided a personal tour. Our room was perfect---clean with many special touches--thick towels, soft sheets,flameless candles, custom... More

As soon as you walk in the door it's jaw dropping - not only the decorating, but the greeting, the tour, the professionalism and friendliness. Got situated then some wine and cheese etc. and a chat with innkeeper Sandy that latest way too long but so nice. She suggested a couple places for dinner and we chose one and it... More

The entire Webster House experience was awesome. I was floored by the excellent service provided the moment I arrived. The owners were friendly and recommended various sites and restaurants in the Bay City area though the food at the Bed and Breakfast far exceeded anything else I ate that weekend. I will be returning soon!

We had no idea what to expect - we had only been to one B&B before, and it was not a good experience. Webster House was perfect from the moment Sandy greeted us warmly at the door. The room was exceptional, every comfort catered for, fridge with wine and soda outside our door, and the most buttery soft sheets ever!... More

We went to the Webster House on a whim- just wanted to get out of town for a night. The accommodations were magnificent. The bed was like a soft, warm nest- the sheets were incredibly soft and comfortable. The whole house was breath taking, really, really, incredible. The wine and cheese welcome at 5 pm was delightful, we got to... More

The inn keep was perfect. So polite and accommodating. We stayed in the keep and reserved the spa for the night. Very much worth it! We were so relaxed for the night. They had cookies, hot snack and complementary wine! The inn keep also recommend a restraurant downtown for our anniversary. It was great too. The restraurant was old city... More

I don't know where to begin. The rooms look exactly like the beautiful pictures on the website. Everything was spotlessly clean and we are very picky about that.The service went way beyond expectations including accommodating my vegan diet without hesitation. This place is so exquisitely restored. Every room is a dream. To top it off, Bay City has several restaurants... More
