Shop for Treasures at Bay City Antiques

Historic Webster House

We often host couples who are in the neighborhood with antiquing on the agenda, and Bay City Antiques and the Bay Antique Center combine into one of Michigan’s largest antique centers in the state. The 60,000-square-foot building spans an entire city block, full of fantastic treasures, vintage collectibles, apparel, jewelry, furniture, and so much more. You could truly find yourself spending hours here, searching for rare finds in the unique collection of vendors. 

Antiquing and shopping can provide couples with a leisurely and enjoyable adventure to connect, communicate, and share in the excitement of finding unique treasures together. It adds a touch of adventure and romance to the getaway experience. Due to the scope and size of Bay City Antiques, this is the perfect venue for all of the above! The only thing that can make antiquing together even better is planning for a multiple-night stay at a local Bay City Bed and Breakfast. 

Thankfully, that’s where The Historic Webster House comes in! Our bed and breakfast in Michigan is the perfect backdrop for your romantic getaway, and the historic nature of our property is always especially impressive to those who appreciate objects and architecture from the past. Throughout the Inn, take note of the Scalamandre fabrics in our custom draperies, antique furniture, and elegant decor, all hearkening back to this historic home’s heyday. Our luxury rooms offer the perfect place to unwind! Start planning and book your lodging today!
