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

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... More

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... More

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 :)

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") -... More

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... More

Great beds - comfortable with great quality bedding. Great breakfast - as noted elsewhere, appreciated the quality of the coffee, and the meals have always been really tasty in the 4 times I've stayed here over the years. Fresh fruit, a nice hot baked dish, and lots of good sides to choose from. Lovely Victorian home with different size rooms... More
