We stumbled across this b&b having left another b&b after a sleepless, uncomfortable and hot night. The staff at Bayside were welcoming and helpful. We stayed for one night in suite 10 before moving next-door to suite 9 as this is what was available on such late notice in peak season. We had our 2 year old son with us... More

Along with our friends, my husband and I spent two nights at the Bayside Inn. From our initial contact with Cheryl, the entire stay was wonderful. The breakfasts were very good, the rooms were clean and the view was wonderful. The staff members are knowledgeable and personable. They were great! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the Bayside Inn.

We stayed at the Bayside Inn after visiting Holland's Tulip Festival. This is the second time we have stayed at Bayside; the first was just on a visit to Saugatuck. Everyone who works there are so nice and friendly. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast is very good too. My Mom is gluten free and the accommodated her without... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bayside Inn on a winter weekend in February. We both agree that, overall, it's the best B&B experience we've had. The staff was very friendly, the location is great (within walking distance to everything in downtown Saugatuck), & it's the most spacious & comfortable room we've had at a bed and breakfast. We...

Stayed here with my wife and in-laws a while back and remember it being real nice. The Bayside Inn is right on the Kalamazoo River and a short walk to the heart of downtown Saugatuck. The suites we stayed in were very roomy, clean and there was a nice gas fireplace amongst other amenities. The host of the inn was... More

My friend and I stayed at the Bayside Inn in December. Although it was cold and snowy we loved our stay. We stayed in room 9 which is a suite that overlooks the river. The staff couldn't have been nicer or friendlier. Even though we were the only ones staying at the Inn, it was a Monday, they served us... More

We like to go to Saugatuck for a weekend in November before the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season begins. This was the first time we stayed at Bayside. After our weekend there, we probably won't stay anywhere else. The staff bent over backwards to make sure our stay was the best. Our room was great, it was on... More

My wife and I visited this little gem en-route from Chicago to Indianapolis. Although we were only booked in for the one night, we immediately felt the friendliness and peace of the establishment on entering. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the water. The room was superbly appointed with a large comfortable bed and plenty of space for... More

I am very surprised to see any negative reviews on the Inn. We stayed for one night in August on our way to the UP. This little inn is so charming clean, comfortable, and extremely friendly. The lady at the front desk (forgot her name) was the kindness person in the whole town as sweet as could be very accommodating.... More
