Pentwater Abbey Bed and Breakfast

85 West 1st Street , Pentwater, MI 49449 USA (Show map)


Location, location, location - we have it. A short walk to everything in Pentwater. Or, if you prefer, use our complimentary bicycles to go to the beach, fine dining, unique gift and antique shops, coffee shops, art galleries, tennis courts, charter fishing, pier fishing, putty golf, and the village green for the free concerts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Pentwater is a delightful little village reminiscent of earlier times. Being both a lifelong resident and member of the Historical Society, your hostess is a wealth of info on local lore. And its a wonderful place to come and relax. Our most popular night in July and August is Thursday. Grab a blanket or one of our lawn chairs and enjoy an old-fashioned band concert on the Village Green Bandstand. Sing along or just listen to early American rendition of "America the Beautiful." A wonderful evening activity enjoyed by all is the gathering at the park for the great sunsets into the Big Lake or the romantic secluded stroll on the beach. A wonderful atmosphere for the weekend getaway.

Perfect example of why we like to stay at B&Bs

5 on October 12, 2015

We were lucky to find an available room on the weekend of Octoberfest. Upon arrival it was clear that Karen had rolled out the red carpeting for us. The room was perfect, clean, quiet and comfortable. Karen's breakfast was fantastic and she made us feel like were visiting a friend. Great location on a quiet street with no traffic just a few steps from downtown. It's one block to the river and a short walk to the beach. You won't find a better location in Pentwater. We will definitely be back.

Very comfortable...a home away from home!

The Pentwater Abbey is an outstanding B&B in a picturesque resort town. It's very close to the many shops and restaurants in downtown Pentwater as well as the lake and park. I've spent many summers in this town and some of my best memories are when I stayed at this inn. I recommend it whole-heartedly!

We've been staying at the Abbey for 25 years. it's a lovely home in a small town on the shore of Lake Michigan and Pentwater Lake. Great ambience and hospitality.

Karen is a very hospitable innkeeper. Come here if you need to be pampered. The breakfast was scrumptious! I'm trying a couple of recipes at a brunch I'm hosting.
