We enjoy staying at this bed-and-breakfast. We have stayed there several times over the last three years. Most of the rooms are wonderful.This time we came up for a one night stay and couldn't get our normal rooms which have king-size beds. So we ended up in the purple room With a queen size bed. The room was nice and... More

We arrived to a gorgeous and stately building with a friendly welcome by Shelley the manager. The room was immaculate and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for the 2 nights. The breakfasts each morning were delicious.

I told them ahead of time I would be arriving after 8pm and they said there would be a note on the door. I arrived at 10. I was also the only guest in the house! (A little eerie not being greeted and being the only person in this big house!). The room was cozy with a tv and private... More

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.

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
