We were greeted by Shelley, the care taker of this cozy home. She showed us around the inn. The second floor kitchen is there for everyone to use stocked with pop corn, cookies, soft drinks/water. There is a regular sized refrigerator, so guests can place their traveling food and drink items for the next leg of their journey. Our room... More

This b&b has plenty of antique charm, but it needs some landscaping as the plants are getting over grown( hard to see sign for place) The caretaker is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. We stayed in the love nest. I was disappointed that we had a nice private balcony but not really able to sit on on it.... More

We spent one night at the Boyden Bed & Breakfast, staying in a second floor room with a private porch. The room was clean and comfortable with private bath and individual thermostat. A guest kitchen was down the hall from the guest rooms where coffee, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream bars were available. The house has been maliciously maintained... More

My wife and I are relative new comers to the B & B scene. This is only second time we have stayed at one and we were not disappointed the least bit. The home is decorated and laid out very nice. Each room has a theme which makes picking one kind of nice. The bed and furnishings were very comfortable... More

We were first timers to the Grand Haven area. We celebrated our anniversary and could not have been more pleased with the Boyden House and the area in general. The Boyden House was absolutely beautiful and quaint and Shelly our hostess - was very accommodating. She makes delicious homemade breakfast and keeps the entire house clean as can be. We... More

My wife and I spent a night at the Boyden House while traveling through the state. It was a wonderful find - the historic house is huge with several nice common areas (a library, a kitchen, a lounging porch) as well as five very nice and clean rooms. We spent the night in the Safari Den, which featured a comfortable... More

After a long drive, we were met by Shelley who gave us a warm welcome to Boyden House. A tour of the house and of our room was enough for us to realise what a good choice we had made to book this B&B. A beautiful house and room (The Love Nest) on what was a fairly quiet road. Breakfast... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here right after the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival, it was an unexpected but wonderful stay. The house was beautiful with a homey atmosphere making it easy to settle in and relax, not to mention the absolutely delicious breakfast prepared each morning. The house itself is located a short walk away from downtown Grand Haven,... More

A beautifully appointed home with adjoining garden. And the woodwork thoughout the home will leave you wondering where all the talented woodworkers have gone. The floors creak, but that adds to the appeal. It won't awaken you. Breakfast was very tasty, and there were frozen treats for that late night yearning. Close to town - a 10-minute walt to the...

Excellent place to stay when visiting Grand Haven. The house is beautiful with a historic yet comfortable feel. We wanted a relaxing and non traditional Thanksgiving but still wanted to feel at home. The Boyden house was perfect. Our room (the safari den) was cozy and spacious with huge windows providing a picturesque view of the lightly falling snow. Shelly... More
