I was here with my wife for a friend's wedding over the weekend and although I didn't have much time to research hotel options, so it was really lucky that I picked this bed and breakfast. We kept commenting to each other how it feels so relaxed just like we're at home, but a much more beautiful home! In addition to a really comfortable stay, it's also worth mentioning that the breakfast is amazing! I actually met some friends at a restaurant for breakfast another morning and it wasn't nearly as good as what was waiting for us downstairs in the morning. If you're ever visiting around Muskeegon, I hope you have the chance to stay here.

Visited here while on a trip to coastal Michigan. This property is beautiful in every detailed way. Everything has been attended to in order to make it exquisite. The owners are looking to sell this beautiful mansion. I hope the new owners will maintain it as a bed and breakfast.

We simply loved the Port City Victorian Inn. The hosts, Barbarba & Fred, are warm, welcoming and gracious. The decor is charming and beautiful. The furnishings are exactly what you might expect in a Victorian inn. Beautiful. Breakfast was sumptuous. We only wish we had known about this treasure on previous visits to Muskegon.

This is the first bed and breakfast I have ever been too and I was taken aback at how at home I felt. We were greeted by two of the cutest puppies and our room was nothing less than great. Our bathroom was also very well taken care of and very clean. Barb and Fred cooked up a mean French toast breakfast. If I’m ever in the Muskegon area again, I will make sure to pay a visit to the Port City Inn.

This was a gorgeous Inn and the host were exquisite. They provided historic knowledge, activity recommendations, but most of all their hospitality was commendable. This was a fun getaway weekend for us. They really saw to any need, or request. The breakfasts were wonderful and done with such victorian charm. It was lovely.

Our visit to this inn on June 18th was delightful from start to finish. The 1870's era home has been remodeled so that five bedrooms have individual bathrooms and most of the shared space as well as those bedrooms have been lovingly decorated with period furnishings and floral wallpaper. The effect was like stepping back into my great-grandmother's parlor! But for those 21st century visitors in need of conveniences and technology, upper rooms featured corner gas fireplaces and flat-screen TV's set up with video players and a selection of movies. Access to lovely gardens, porches and gentle lake breezes complete the homey experience. Barb welcomed us and showed us around. The home's history is captured in a photo album in the front parlor, and a framed photo of the original home in its heyday has pride of place in the front foyer. Barb and Fred have been hosts here for 26 years and they love what they do. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, poached eggs with hollandaise souce, sausage patties and a potatoe and corn sautee that rounded out the plate beautifully. We were the only guests, so our hosts had time to sit with us over coffee, and the conversation was lively. Given that Mark and I are pet-lovers, the resident mini-yorkshire terriers, Oscar and Victoria, were also welcoming and made the sense of homecoming complete. I can't remember a better stay at a B&B!

Fred and Barbara are wonderful hosts. They have meticulously restored their home into a B&B I would return to. I believe there is not much Fred cant rebuild. Barbara made a nice breakfast you just cant find elsewhere. Enjoyed the stories of the house and the labor of love Fred and Barb have dedicated to this fine Victorian B&B.

Barbara and Fred (along with their little mini yorkies Oscar and Victoria) were gracious hosts at our recent stay. Breakfast was fantastic and the room, along with the rest of the house, was gorgeous, we stayed in the Captain's Room. You also have a great view of the lake and the daily smells from the bread bakery just down the road. All in all, a wonderful trip.

My husband and i thoroughly enjoyed out stay here! Its so beautiful and feels cozy and personable. The owners are fantastic and make sure your stay is perfect. The home cooked breakfast in the morning is delicious! Our room was lovely with a large jacuzzi tub and air conditioning! We will be back someday!

While our bedroom was very comfortable in the period décor, the bathroom did not lack any modern convenience including a Jacuzzi. May be because the property is currently offered for sale we encountered a few house rules such as a request to take our shoes off before taking the newly carpeted stairs. We were offered a baked oatmeal dish for our early (8:30) breakfast. However, because of a request by another guest the dish was prepared with Almond Milk which was not to our taste. Our main reason for choosing this B & B is its close proximity the car ferry to Milwaukee. There is ample off-street parking.
