Circa 1874. A lavish garden surrounds this nineteenth century Victorian/Queen Anne-style home, filled with elegant, cozy, eclectic rooms. Some guest bedrooms feature Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces. Hardwood floors, massive pocket doors and handcrafted wood details offer a nostalgic journey upon the first step over the threshold of this bed and breakfast in Grand Haven, Michigan. It is an easy walk from Boyden House to shops, restaurants, cafes and the beach. Enjoy a stroll on the boardwalk along the Grand River, ending with a sunset at the lighthouse pier.

Romantic Interest

Use of candles both in our home and our rooms is encouraged. Breakfasts are served by candlelight. The ambiance of The Boyden is romantic as it envelopes you with a feel of home and beauty when you enter.

Describe Garden and Grounds

Our perennials create a sense of "seclusion" from the street. Our guests are delighted by the maturity of the trees, the trumpet vine and the scent of the wisteria. The front area is in constant change with both the perennial and annual plantings. The Patio and Deck area are enhanced by a very old "grape vine" that moves on over the shaded year round "Koi" fish pond.

Baked Oatmeal

A fabulous oatmeal baked and loaded with good for you ingredients. It always gets rave reviews and requests for the recipe. This was suggested to me by a gentleman from Pakistan and he said his wife \"Americanized\" it.

Wonderful Vacation

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend and loved it. We relaxed in the study and enjoyed all of the additional attention that was given to make our stay comfortable. The breakfast's were beyond what we expected. We will be visiting again very soon.

Romance and relaxation

This was our first experience at a B&B. On a romantic, last minute trip, we stumbled upon the Boyden House. Gail and Tony made this stay perfect. The room was sunny, bright and open during the day and candle-lit and romantic in the evening. Gail is a fantastic cook, we couldn't have gotten a breakfast like this anywhere else. There isn't enough space here to describe the lush surroundings, breezy porch, romantic music, kind hospitality...my only regret is that we aren't staying longer. But I am certain we will return. I didn't want to get out of bed, then I didn't want to leave the porch, but both downtown and the water was just a short walk away.

Top Notch

This B&B is among the best. Clean, cozy, and inviting, our room was large and bathed in natural light from the numerous windows. As for the Boyden's owners, they are warm and gracious and willingly accomidated our special needs (a 9 month old baby). Breakfast was simple and became somewhat repetitive over the course of our stay, but it was always fresh and well prepared. Great location within walking distance of downtown and the beaches.
