About J. Paule's Fenn Inn


Your Hostess, Ms. Paulette, welcomes you to our Southern Michigan bed and breakfast! A destination for your relaxation and fun.

I bought the Fenn House in 1984, after my husband died,I moved back home and bought this very run down older home that was built in the late 1890-1910...It has been a labor of love. You can feel the good energy in the house as soon as you walk-in.  After 2 years of fixing, in 1986, I got a variance to start a B&B, they were not an industry yet in the United States, as a mater of fact their was no Insurance set up to cover such a thing. Didn't take the insurance companies long to figure that one out. I started renting one room at a time until all the rooms were finely finished. We have been providing lodging accommodations in Fennville and the Saugatuck area ever since and have had people from all over the world stay with us. The inn is in a quiet country setting on 2 acres featuring lots of flower gardens with seating for quiet reading or conversation. There is an outside BBQ and picnic tables along with a fire pit for evening relaxation. The second floor has a large deck for sunning if you don't wish to fight the summer crowds at Lake Michigan. The lake is just a 10-minute drive from our B&B.

All 5 or our rooms have private baths; some have Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces, two rooms have baths that are across the hall, the rest are in the rooms. You are served a full sit down breakfast every morning from 8-10 a.m.; coffee is on at 7 a.m. for the early risers. You will find a desert table with coffee and tea's of your choice all day long!

We are centrally located for all kinds of activities from horseback riding to canoeing, or shopping in Saugatuck. You can visit the many art galleries, and don't forget Antiquing!

We are close to Hutchens Lake, where you can take a leisurely walk down our side road to the lake and play in the water at the boat launch. There is a small swimming area, and it is also a very good lake for fishing. We have lots of room to put your boat and trailor.

Looking forward to seeing you at "J. Paule's Fenn Inn" soon.

Thanks,
Paulette J. Clouse, Owner
