“A Wonderful Surprise”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

This was our first visit to the Belvedere Inn and Restaurant and were delightfully happy with everything there. From the moment you walk in the front door you are made to feel at home and very welcome. The staff makes you feel very special and do everything they can to make your visit an enjoyable one. We enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the flowers, pond and all they lovely things nature has for us to enjoy. Breakfast was a gourmet treat; unfortunately we were not able to try the dinner but plan to do so on our next visit. This is a place not to miss if you are in the area.

Room Tip: All rooms are very charming.

We really enjoyed staying at the Belvedere Inn, it is a great blend of old world charm and modern amenities. Dinner was oustanding and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was not large but very nice and quiet and had everything we needed. Would definitely return again!

Absolutely lovely place to remove yourself from frenetic daily challenges. Setting is beautiful, spacious grounds, gardens, a fountain, and even a small pond in the back. You feel like you've stepped out of the current century and into a nineteenth century British manor.

The Inn itself is meticulously maintained. Loved the library and the sun room in particular. And if you're staying there, you must, at least once, have an outstanding dinner there. Chef Shaun creates most elegant main courses accompanied by to-die-for desserts.

A buffet of munchies is maintained all day: coffee/tea and biscotti in the morning, fabulous cookies or brownies with HOMEMADE lemonade or iced tea the rest of the day. And, if it's served, do try the lemonade. I don't even like lemonade and this was stunningly delicious.

Give this Inn and its hosts five stars.

The Belvedere is why I love trip advisor! I read multiple reviews for B&B in the Saugatuck area, and found The Belvedere, which turned out just as great as it has been reviewed! Tucked away up the street from downtown Saugatuck, I definitely didn't regret not staying in town. First vision of the house takes your breath away, looks like the castles we visited in Europe!

We stayed in the Abbey for 2 nights, which is on the 2nd floor at the end of the hall. The room was small but perfect for 2, tons of window light and a great view of the backyard gardens. Would recommend this room if you're not going for a suite.

The host, Shaun who is the main innkeeper and chef, was wonderful. Its all about the details here, from a wonderfully laid out breakfast, to the sweet snacks laid out at all times, to the coffee or iced tea left out for guests. Bottled waters for guests in the room each day. Great suggestions for what to do in the area.

We also had dinner at the Inn - if you book 2 weeknights, you get a voucher for dinner for 2 which was a great meal! And from what I believe, Shaun the innkeeper cooks it all! 4-courses at $50, makes this a great deal esp if you're staying at the property.

Will definitely visit again. Saugatuck is a special little town.

Room Tip: The Abbey is on the 2nd floor, the end room, view of the back yard, gardens and pond. Lots of light...

Superb, quiet, comfortable suites. Attentive, welcoming staff. Food that melts in your mouth. On a ten point scale I give it a 15!!!

Room Tip: Take time to walk the property ... it's lovely ... relax on the benches by the pond

I found the Belvedere Inn while searching for a place to stay in Saugatuck. My fiance and I were planning a much needed getaway and he suggested looking into a bed and breakfast. I was hesitant since I had never been to one but he assured me I would love it. After searching for places online, I chose the Belvedere because they had a room available with a king bed and a whirlpool, plus the 2 night package included a $100 certificate for dinner. I knew we'd made the right choice the minute Shaun opened the door to greet us. He immediately made us feel at home. The restored Inn is absolutely beautiful, the service is impeccable and the food is the best I've ever been served. Shaun's culinary talents are amazing and are second only to his hospitality. Not a single detail was overlooked in making our stay as comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable as it could possibly have been. By the end of our stay we decided that not only were we going to make staying at the Belvedere a tradition, but that we had found the perfect place to have our wedding next year.
