A beautifully appointed home with adjoining garden. And the woodwork thoughout the home will leave you wondering where all the talented woodworkers have gone. The floors creak, but that adds to the appeal. It won't awaken you. Breakfast was very tasty, and there were frozen treats for that late night yearning. Close to town - a 10-minute walt to the...

Excellent place to stay when visiting Grand Haven. The house is beautiful with a historic yet comfortable feel. We wanted a relaxing and non traditional Thanksgiving but still wanted to feel at home. The Boyden house was perfect. Our room (the safari den) was cozy and spacious with huge windows providing a picturesque view of the lightly falling snow. Shelly... More

The room was cozy and clean. Loved the large jacuzzi tub in bathroom of the Honeymoon Suite. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious! The house and grounds were well-kept and lovely. Thanks for a great stay!

We recently enjoyed our second stay at this beautiful old home located in a very nice residential area of this great town. All the rooms in this B&B are very nicely appointed. We have stayed in the Love Nest and most recently in Amber's room. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean as was the entire house. The bed was... More

Breakfast was delicious, croissant French toast, sausage, the best baked oatmeal with berries. VERY friendly. Clean and Beautiful woodwork! Parking on the premises. Walk downtown, to river & lake! Stay @ B&B's often; this is a true value!

This charming B&B is located in a beautiful town, on a lovely street and with exceptional hospitality. The room was spacious and elegant and the wine soufflé for breakfast was certainly memorable! Even though we only spent one night, our memory of the sunset while enjoying the boardwalk, and the walk through the neighborhood and downtown, will not be forgotten.

My husband and I have been in Grand Haven many times. We had a wonderful time at the Boyden House. The woodwork and architectural detail were stunning. We stayed in the executive suite. It was a large, clean and cozy room with a fireplace and a chaise lounge. Being a neat freak, the room was clean as a whistle. The... More

Nice old home in a nice location. The staff seem to run the Inn to their convenience and not the guests. There is nobody to meet you at check-in; breakfast is offered ONLY 9 - 9:30 and (Breakfast is really just average).

I thought this place was perfect. I am super picky and have high expectations, but Boyden House was better than expected in a lot of ways. Location is super, we were upgraded to a bigger room once we arrived for no extra charge (they were not fully booked), everything about the room and the house itself was charming. Clean, free...

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.... More
