ROSEMONT INN RESORT - is located across the street (with access) from Lake Michigan's sandy beaches in Douglas/Saugatuck (the Midwest's B&B capital). This popular year-round destination offers quaint shops, sandy beaches, boat excursions, charter fishing and canoeing. Horseback riding, hiking trails, dune schooners, excellent golf courses, tennis courts, and many fine restaurants are nearby.
The original 1901 home was expanded in 1984 to provide for a total of 14 guestrooms. This historic B&B is beautifully landscaped and features a colorful waterfall garden area, entry canopy and lakeview Vixen Hill gazebo. There is also a two-car garage on this oversized (almost an acre) scenic lot with ample parking for guests.
The 8,800+ s.f. Rosemont Inn Resort is a white vinyl clapboard beachhouse charmer with multicolored trim finish. Guests enjoy Lake Michigan sunsets from its 1,000 s.f. lakeside gathering room which features lots of hardwood and an elegant wetbar.
The spacious 800 s.f. dining & sitting area overlooks the kidney shaped pool and it is also utilized as a well-equipped meeting room. The two story, 1,200 s.f. atrium spa area has an oversized tiled hot tub, sauna & lush vegetation. Each of the rooms has a cozy gas fireplace, TV, phone, private bath, air conditioning, and either a king or queen four-poster bed. Three deluxe rooms provide a two-person whirlpool tub. All rooms either face Lake Michigan or, with a bay window, provide a similar view.
There is a convenient, 1,600 s.f. first-floor keepers’ quarters with an open floorplan that features a well-equipped licensed kitchen, dining room, living room and office. The oversized, master bedroom features a sitting area, a walk-in closet and a private, walkout deck and yard.

In business since 1982, The Rosemont enjoys a healthy percentage of repeat and referral business. After 15 years as owners, Pieter and Pat Lion are now preparing for retirement. This premier Lake Michigan inn is being offered at $1.9M and includes most of the elegant furnishings. #SW80
