Being a retired 21+ years innkeeper and having stayed at over 100 B&Bs, I found this Bay View Inn to be at the top of my list in what I consider to be of most importance in a lodging - cleanliness, outstanding hospitality, friendliness of staff, service, location, and decor. There are no TVs in the rooms, so I had time to read the comments of other guests in the in-room guest book the night we arrived. The comments were so favorably descriptive, I could hardly believe them. However, they were so true I realized during our stay. The entire place is spotless. Our room was actually a suite with two comfortable upholstered chairs for reading or computer work (they have wifi), a tub/shower separate from the sink so two people can use bathroom at same time, a gorgeous view from our window of the bay of Lake Michigan, and total quiet except for the occasional loving squeaks of the floor when we walked (it is a historic building wonderfully restored and maintained). The breakfast room for our delicious breakfast was a totally windowed enclosed porch and we were able to watch the swans on the lake and view the gardens as we ate. I can't say enough about this place. We definitely will be back.
