Circa 1926. Located on the edge of the Kalamazoo River and across from the nature observation tower, this downtown inn was once a boathouse. The common room now has a fireplace and view of the water. Each guest room has its own deck. The inn is near several restaurants, shops and beaches. Fishing for salmon, perch and trout is popular.

Historic Interest

The Bayside Inn Bed & Breakfast was originally built in 1927 as a boathouse with living quarters on the upper level. Flourishing during this period, it served as a boathouse until the mid-1940's. In 1945, the building was turned into a marina, it's obvious prime location " mere steps away from the bustling downtown village of Saugatuck " was in high demand. What stands today as the Harbor House (Bayside's two large suites, #9 and #10) served as a boat-garage during the period between 1945 and 1956, when the marina closed. For many years, high waters kept the building partially submerged. A seawall was added, but even that wasn't enough to hold the water back. The building sat with a failing foundation immersed in water until 1990. It was then that Kathy and Frank Wilson stepped in and purchased the challenged property. They proceeded to transform the property into Saugatuck's most prestigious waterfront bed and breakfast.
