My husband and I stayed in room #1. It was beautiful and had a private deck overlooking the lake. The location of this inn is perfect. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't use it again until we left 2 days later. The innkeepers were wonderful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Would... More

I have spent a lot of time in Saugatuck and never noticed this place. But the wife and I spent a long weekend here and it was great!! Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfasts were good and not over the top, like some other B&B's in the area try to be. Good amenities - not fancy, but very comfortable.... More

We had a second floor room with an outdoor patio/deck that was shady in the evening. Perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine. The bed was comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. Breakfast was a bountiful spread of egg casserole, fresh fruit, several breakfast breads, juices and robust coffee. Quiet location on the water. Shir-lou is the... More

We had a lovely suite on the water with a little patio. The staff was wonderful, the suite well appointed and it was within walking distance to everything but the beach. How can you not love Saugatuck? Enjoyed the jetted tub and also the hot tub along the waterway. Good little breakfast selection and coffee and snacks were always available.... More

The Innkeepers at Bayside are so welcoming and genuinely nice people. The accommodations are outstanding! Very comfortable beds, quality toiletries, very clean and nicely decorated. Whether sitting on the balcony enjoying the array of boats passing by on the river, taking a river cruise to watch the sunset or enjoying a walk through town with all the great little shops... More

Can't beat location on the river but no parking provided. Well appointed, homey environment. Room has balcony, some on the river side. Our room was adequate size but inadequate shelves, storage space. Innkeepers friendly, buffet breakfast excellent, great outdoor hot tub.

I want to start my review by saying how nice the innkeepers are. Upon arrival to our room we were greeted with champagne, chocolates and a little note congratulating us on our 8 yr wedding anniversary- which was such a nice touch and very unexpexted!! The view from our balcony (room 6) of the river was great. The location is... More

The Bayside Inn was very relaxing and quaint. The patio overlooking the water is beautiful and the Inn appeared to be very well maintained. The rooms are each unique and the bed was very comfortable in room 5! Breakfast was delicious and cookies and popcorn were always offered in the afternoon. The staff was very helpful and always avaliable. Also,... More
