The Bayside Inn Bed & Breakfast sits at the water's edge in a prominent location in downtown Saugatuck. This former landmark boathouse and marina was built in 1927. It was rescued from encroaching waters by Innkeepers Frank and Kathy Wilson who fell in love with its panoramic views of the river and the harbor. They set about transforming the failing building into one of the most stylish bed & breakfasts in Saugatuck. Today this Saugatuck bed & breakfast is a breezy memorable place in the warm months and a cozy enclave in the winter. The Inn has six stylish, contemporary guest rooms and four suites with fireplaces. All are creatively appointed in sophisticated and impeccable taste in an intriguing blend of colors. All accommodations include air conditioning, cable TV, phones, DVD players, DVD library, free WIFI and private decks, some of which overlook the water. Overnight guests awaken to the sight of soaring seagulls and the “toot” of a stern-wheel paddleboat just outside their sliding glass doors. The Bayside has earned an enviable reputation for its amazing breakfasts. Morning appetites are cared for with seasonal fruits, hot egg dishes, and sweet breads. Guests may eat breakfast in the common room, or on the Inn's master deck overlooking the river. The Bayside is imbued with a sense of tranquility – of being a world removed. Guests are transported to a peaceful place as ducks glide by their patios, along with the comforting motion of sailboats, kayaks and motor yachts slipping in and out of the harbor. The stress relief allows guests a feeling of instant comfort which in turn gives way to instant relaxation. Mention The Bayside and you will usually be told of some personal kindness performed by the hotel staff who believe customer service is the #1 priority.
