J. Paules Fenn Inn
Ranked #2 of 8 Fennville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Enjoyed a recent stay at J. Paul's Fenn Inn. The Inn is a delight and inviting. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy. Beautiful grounds to sit outside and chat or read a book. Doesn't take long to feel right at home. Also found an amazing restaurant just down the road in Fennville. Lots to do in Saugatuck and Douglas.

Wevnjoyed our relaxing stay at J. Paules Fenn Inn. Our innkeeper Paulette was informative, friendly, and accessible in an informal way without being overbearing as many innkeepers are these days. Our room was spacious and luxurious. We enjoyed walking around the large garden and sitting in the swing to pass the hours away. We also enjoed a long walk along rural tree-lined road from the inn to the edge of town. Despite being in a rural setting, we were just minutes away from Saugatuck and Douglas, New England-type charming old villages. Chris and Janet

This B & B is a nice property but out in the country with little to recommend it. During our stay the gardeners arrived and proceeded to shape up the property which lasted until about 8:00 pm. The innkeepers appear to be hanging on to a dream that should have been let go and convert the B& B into a family home to be enjoyed as a historical building not designed for guests.

O' my what I can I to say about this review.... there was some gardening done but was over by around 4pm. barking around tree's and such.....I remember you well, and sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. We have a lovely B&B but can not make every one happy , If you would like I can give you 2 more days of your choice, you only spent one day, I would like to offer you 2 days Free... in hopes that your next stay would be a better one. Please don't bring your dog on your next say, because it bights people, defiantly not a B&B dog, you are very welcome to come back, but please leave the little ankle biter home.

We really enjoyed our stay and the relaxing hot tub after a long day on the road. It was nice to have our own deck off our room to enjoy the beautiful gardens from. We had great cookies to snack on in the evening and breakfast in the morning was fantastic. We wish Paulette success in her next endeavors.

Our second stay and love both the West Suite and Tree Top. Great Jacuzzis and bath oils and candles provided. Tree Top suite has lots of room and privacy and Paulette is a great hostess. She was very good about my diet restrictions for breakfast and offers a nice choice of snacks - sweets or fresh fruit.

We loved our stay in this B&B. The owners were incredibly helpful and welcoming and did everything to make us feel comfortable. Our large dog was welcome, and they modified the breakfast to accommodate food allergies. We also enjoyed the room, sun porch and landscaped gardens. The location is quiet and close to Lake Michigan, several state parks, Holland and Saugatuck. we will definitely be back.

What a wonderful place to run away to for rest, relaxation, to read, to visit with nice people and to feel at home without the work. :) Goodies at night on the table and fresh made breakfast in the morning...yum. Very, very homey and welcoming. I can't wait to go back!
