Charming, historic Butler Bed and Breakfast is located in the Lake Huron harbor community of Lexington.

Once you're here, we'll help you plan your days of fun with "insider" suggestions on places to dine, play and relax. Butler B&B is close by but miles from the ordinary stress of your daily life.
Butler Bed & Breakfast is located along the scenic drive of M-25 in the picturesque harbor-town of Lexington, Michigan. Beginning as a photography studio in 1998, these days we operate only as a bed and breakfast. Our historic home is located on two acres of beautifully landscaped property. The grounds of our home provide an ideal setting for outdoor rest and relaxation for our guests. Located four blocks away is the scenic limestone harbor providing a beautiful nautical setting for your enjoyment.
Our home was built in 1879 for Phillip L. Wixson. The wood used in the house is almost all hemlock, a very straight-grained, strong, weather-resistant wood. The Lexington area was one of the few areas in the state where sufficient hemlock grew to allow almost an entire house to be built of this one type of wood.
Robert E. and Myrtle Devereaux bought the house in 1946. Devereaux owned the Detroit and Windsor Steamship Company, which provided ferry service across the Detroit River between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. They also owned the Bob-Lo boats at that point.
Daniel G. and Dilla J. Miller bought the house in 1989 and created the Centennial Bed and Breakfast. They had the house listed on the Michigan Register of Historic Sites in 1990.
We bought the house in 1998 to pursue our dream of owning a photography studio in a beautiful location and now we would like to share that dream with you. Come visit us and enjoy the beauty of Lexington, Lake Huron and all that the Thumb of Michigan has to offer.
