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.

We stayed in unit #7, the fountain added a nice touch outside by the patio. The breakfast was good although in Saugatuck there are lots of choices for great breakfast places. The furniture was comfortable. There was a family in the unit upstairs so it's not exactly sound proof, but not terrible.

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
