My husband and I stayed at the Harbor House last weekend and was thrilled with the accommodations! The check in was smooth with friendly staff and the rooms were homey and accommodated our every need. We had a balcony which was large with a great view. Beds were comfy, whirlpool tub spacious, morning breakfast modest but ample. Every B&B is... More

We are guessing we had the same third floor room that you had. The thermostat in the heating unit was working intermittently. But Instead of trashing this lovely B and B on line, we advised the front desk.. She said they were unaware of the problem--and that unless folks tell them of problems, they can't fix them. She indicated they'd... More

We stayed here to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. Drove in from Detroit area. First of all the location is great. And the rates were not bad. The inn is a bit tired. I know it's an old Victorian, but that doesn't mean the furniture needs to be from that era, too. Not the style, just a bit tattered... More

Was there for business for two days. Stayed in room 2 on first floor. Nice fireplace and jetted tub. I would stay there again but perhaps on 2nd floor to have a better view and more privacy. Host was very nice. Will be back. Breakfast was ok as well.

When visiting Grand Haven, we always stay at the Harbor House and have always loved it We were in a third floor room that was very warm. Couldn't seem to regulate temperature. During the night - no heat at all. Things have changed. Not bad but not great like it was.

This is such a great place to stay if you can get a reservation right in the midst of the town of Grand Haven. It's been a few years since I have been, but I loved my stay here. It's quiet, clean, and romantic. The breakfast is so great and so nice to sit on the porch and eat and... More

Amazing spot to make a memory! Here's my list: -right in downtown area, but not super loud...just 2 short blocks from Washington St. -The main building is one option (Go for the balcony room, I like room 25 and 24 best) OR...go for the Cottage House. It is a separate building that has two rooms in it. One overlooksk the... More

My daughter and I wanted to get away to enjoy the fall colors and spend some quality time together. I'am so glad that I chose The Harbor Inn. The rooms are very clean and we both felt at home. The bed was so comfortable that we had a hard time getting up in the morning to start our day 😊... More

On a spur of the moment trip, I needed a place to stay. In Snug Harbor what a great choice. Decorated like grandma's complete with real hand sewn comforters. Breakfast included bakery fresh bread. The staff is helpful. The workout room is a full Y, just a short walk.

located within walking distance of restaurants, shopping and lake front makes this property a very good choice. Bed was a bit small and no soap in the bathroom, but I assume this was a minor overlooked detail. Breakfast was good, nothing especially over the top fantastic. Would recommend especially for off season pricing.
