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.

Harbor House has been our favorite vacation destination for the past several years. It, coupled with the charm of Grand Haven, is something we look forward to every year. It has a perfect location overlooking the Grand River and the park with views of Lake Michigan. The inn is immaculately kept as well as the grounds. The rooms are bright... More

Excellent location was very handy for everything. The balcony was also good to sit out on after a day out. Would definitely recommend as it had a very welcoming and personal feel. Only fault was that the fold up bed was very uncomfortable, and was quite tight for space with 3 in.

We stayed at the Harbor House Inn in Grand Haven for the second consecutive year for our anniversary weekend. It is so charming with personal and friendly service, homemade continental breakfast, a wonderful screened-in porch, and great location to Grand Haven's waterfront and downtown. We stayed in Room 25 which has a wrap-around deck where you have a perfect view... More

The Harbor House Inn was an unexpected gem in Grand Haven. The inn was beautiful inside and outside. My mother and I stayed in room 26 . The king bed was split into 2 twins which were very comfortable. The room also had 2 chairs for reading or relaxing. The inn was exceptionally clean and well cared for. Just fyi... More

I grew up in Grand Haven, and ever since I moved, I've wanted to stay at a hotel on the water or downtown so that I was within walking distance of almost everything. The Harbor House satisfies on both counts - the location was amazing: right downtown, the Grand River was across the street, and Lake Michigan was a short... More

We visited for a weekend getaway with friends over Labor Day. Easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the perfect start for lazy vacation days!

We spent two days here. Location is perfect for access to shopping, sailing, and walking the boardwalk. Right on the water so good views. Breakfast was very nice. Service excellent. Would definitely stay here again.
