This is a very lovey place very cozy and inviting... A very friendly community. They service was excellent and this is right on Lake Michigan. A great place to visit in the summers and most places are within walking distance so driving not needed. Lots of great places to eat and drink near by.

We had a wonderful stay at the Ivy Inn. Our room was very small, but was air conditioned, quiet, and clean. Everyone I interacted with was genuine and accommodating - graciously allowing us a late checkin. We were pleased with the homemade French toast, boiled eggs, and coffee for breakfast. The Ivy Inn is an excellent choice for the price... More

Great location but that's all. Room was small, linens ok, not great, 2 tiny bars of soap in the shower, no shampoo, or lotion, furnishings were just old not quaint. The worst was the DELUXE continental breakfast - hard boiled eggs, toast, bagels that you toasted yourself, juice, coffee, cold cereal. You get that at a motel 6. The only... More

Inn was clean, Barbara the Innkeeper was very nice and accommodating. We slept in the room with twin beds, one of the mattresses was horrendous! Bulb out in bath. Average furniture and linens. Can't beat the location, we walked everywhere! A little pricey for what you get but that could be due to the location. Would stay again for the... More

The Ivy Inn has a wonderful location, across from the river and a block off the main drag. The rooms were clean, quaint, and functional. We went on a cold day in March, so things were quiet. We stayed in the Violet room, which had plenty of sunlight for such a dreary day. Barbara, the innkeeper, was warm and helpful,... More

My sister and I stayed here this past weekend and absolutely loved it! Barbara was so warm and welcoming and even made a special treat for me that was gluten free! The home was inviting, clean and well cared for and located perfectly in the middle of town. Our room was just right for my sister and I and a... More

Located right downtown, yet nestled away. Clean, neat and well decorated. Innkeeper welcoming. Our room, the Queen's Room, large, lots of places for clothes and the shower was strong and hot. They do not supply shampoo, etc & the soap is very small. Bring your own. Breakfast was a variety of foods. A delicious quiche, fruit mix, pastries, cereals, muffins... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ivy Inn. The manager Barbara is a very warm and welcoming host. The inn is tucked away from the main street and is very quiet. The rooms are typical B&B but sufficient. You need to bring your hair products and hair dryer, not supplied. The breakfast was a strata, muffins, fruit etc. A... More

Our family recently traveled to Saugatuck, Michigan to attend wedding festivities. Others reserved a room for me at a national chain, which advertized it was also in Saugatuck. Fortunately, a cousin told me about the Ivy Inn, a bed and breakfast, where they stay every time they travel to the shore. The national chain was on the outskirts of town,... More

This is a little B&B, not fancy but totally homey. The location is fantastic, right along the main drag amid the shops of Saugatuck. The day we were there, the town was hot and crowded, with Jimmy Buffet music blaring from every bar. Exhausted from walking in the heat, we rounded the corner to the porch of the Ivy Inn,... More
