Bay City: Historic Webster House B&B

I'm back from our trip and time went by way too fast. As I sometimes like to do after we have traveled, I'm going to take a moment to talk about where we stayed. To produce plenty of added stress to my life, I seem to always wait until last minute to plan where we are going for our anniversary each year. The tradition that we started is to always go somewhere that is new to at least one of us, so that we can continually see new places and share new experiences.

I spend a week or two before searching for deals and sometimes base where go completely on the best deal that I find. This year I came across a fantastic deal on Living Social for the Historic Webster House. Now, I never thought that I was the type of person to enjoy a bed and breakfast. As a matter of fact, an episode of Gilmore Girls come to mind when Rory and Lorelai spent the night in a B&B.

I'm happy to say that the Webster House changed my views about what I suppose that I assumed bed and breakfasts were like. You can make it as private as you like and the service is much more customized to your needs. Frank and Gail, the innkeepers, were very helpful in meeting our needs, answering any questions, and providing little extras along the way. They go out of their way to help their guests. At night, our bedsheets were turned down and homemade desserts were left to enjoy when we'd return for the evening. Breakfast every morning consisted of homemade baked goods and a generous plate of items like quiche, bacon, and hash browns. They even have complimentary beverages on every floor.

^ Breakfast area.

^ Game room.

^ The Magistrate room. This was taken in the morning so...the bed looks slept in for a reason. ;) And it's a really comfortable bed!

^ The Magistrate's seating area with two additional skylights.

The Living Social deal was great. We chose the Magistrate room and it has skylights over the bed, so we literally slept under the stars. We also had the spa and sauna room for one night, which was amazing. There is a jacuzzi for two, a double shower, and a sauna. You just lock the door and escape from reality for a while. It was easily my favorite room and my husband practically had to pry me out to go back up to our room afterward.

Bay City is not far from some great shopping either (which you know is my weakness)! About 35 minutes away are the Birch Run Outlets and it is about 1.5 hours to Detroit and The Somerset Collection. I'll be showing the bits and bobs that I bought soon! We had a lovely sixth anniversary here and we'd happily return to stay at the Webster House again someday, as I have nothing negative to say about it!
