A tranquil respite, J. Paule's Fenn Inn is a
great B&B setting for those wanting a Michigan
vacation near the popular Lake Michigan tourism
destination of Saugatuck/Douglas. Hidden away on two country acres, the bed and
breakfast was built around 1900 using an architectural style known as Country
Four Square or Art Deco.
Solid oak accents define the main floor,
whose open layout flows from one room to another across a patterned wood floor.
The cozy décor and eclectic furnishings reflect the hospitality of the owner,
who has served as inn’s hostess for more than 27 years. The innkeeper has designated the bed & breakfast as
pet-friendly for those guests who travel with their furry family members. All but one room is pet friendly.
She serves a full gourmet breakfast each
day, featuring such menu delights as pecan French toast, stuffed French toast,
and apple-puff pancakes. Guests can satisfy their morning appetites in the
country-style dining room in the winter or an enclosed sun porch in the summer. The inn’s personal touch is evident each
evening, when the hostess serves desserts, with coffee,
tea, and wine and grape juice bottled at a local winery and stamped with the
inn’s own label—a charming keepsake for guests.
The warmth of the hostess can be found in
the lovely decorative touches all through the six guest rooms. Also with lots of extras and WIFI access is available throughout the inn.
The inn’s charm spills outdoors to flowering
gardens, dotted with gazebos, sitting areas, and fountains—little niches where
guests can claim their own calming oasis. A wrap-around porch, barbecue grills, picnic tables, fire pits, and decks further contribute to the inn’s atmosphere of cordiality.
At J. Paule's Fenn Inn, hospitality and tranquility always combine to create the decisive getaway. They are a destination and their guests say they are the "Best Kept Secret in Southwest Michigan".
