I cannot reap enough praise on this place! Well done and not froufrou as so many B&B's are. Practical, river-side accommodation with a super attentive staff, nice breakfasts and clean comfy rooms. Make sure you get a front view of the river and you'll get a deck or balcony close enough to the water's edge to throw popcorn (which they... More

The minute we entered Bayside Inn, we felt as if we had come home for Christmas. Staff there were so warm and friendly. The room was warm, cozy with a gorgeous view. They also prepared snacks for us in the afternoon and a gorgeous spread of breakfast in the morning. I will not be staying anywhere else the next time... More

We just completed our 4th visit to the Bayside Inn, which is highly unusual for us. There are only a couple of Bed and Breakfast accommodations that my wife and I have visited more than once, and this is one of the few. Every room has a balcony and view to either the river or the street that are extremely... More

I typically don't like Bed and Breakfasts to stay at but I have to say I Had the best stay at the Bayside Inn. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and had a great view of the river. We were the only couple for the weekend and had the place to ourselves,... More

My wife and I along with another couple stayed at the Bayside Inn on New Year's Eve and day. Each couple had their own room. We stayed in #8 which is a two room suite with a fireplace, small kitchen and a large deck overlooking the river. The room was well decorated, cozy and clean. Breakfast was included and although...

My wife and I chose this place for a long weekend away from the kids. The leaves were turning colors and we wanted a quiet getaway. Bayside was a great place for such a trip. Situated about five minutes walk from the center of saugatuck, it is a very nice and quaint place to stay. The receptionist was very knowledgable... More

Great little city on the water and the inn is on the river and walking distance to town. Very clean accommodations. We stayed in a large suite with living room, small kitchen, bedroom and bathroom and deck overlooking the river. Very helpful staff. Great breakfast and we enjoyed talking to other guests at breakfast.

We enjoy the Bayside Inn (Room #1 is where we have stayed several times) because it is clean and comfortable with normal amenities. Private balcony runs the length of the room with two sliding glass doors with a view of the Kalamazoo River and Mt. Baldhead. Great views of the western sunset. Easy walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants.... More

We were in room 4 and we very much enjoyed our private balcony and the waterfront views. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The location was excellent, we walked everywhere. The staff person was very helpful with suggestions. We would recommend it.
