The Painted Turtle Inn is a brand new bed and breakfast lodging facility in Saint Joseph, Michigan. Situated right on Lakeshore Drive, overlooking the bluff and with each room offering vantage points highlighting Lake Michigan, our St. Joseph inn will be known for its location, luxury accommodations and gourmet breakfasts. The home features a completely redesigned interior to ensure a clean, quiet and comfortable experience for our guests along with adding modern conveniences including fully updated private baths for each of our five guest rooms.

After check-in, and on each day of your stay, you will be invited to an afternoon reception featuring the unique hors d’oeuvres of the day. This allows you to meet the other guests at our inn in St. Joseph and enjoy an afternoon snack after a long drive or day at the beach. Summer treats  feature local produce in season, such as vegetable pizzas, bruschetta or salsas made from locally grown tomatoes, peppers and herbs. In the winter, you will be able to enjoy our soup samplings to warm up from the outdoor chill. This will be a great time to learn about all the activities going on in the area during your stay and see what other guests have done and enjoyed while in the area.

Once you’ve enjoyed your relaxing evening and slept soundly in your room, you will wake up to the smell of coffee wafting through the St. Joseph inn and muffins baking or bacon sizzling. A gourmet breakfast awaits you, always featuring the best local produce in season and as many fresh, local ingredients as are available. A sample breakfast might include freshly brewed coffee, a selection of fruit juices, morning glory muffins still warm from the oven to start and an egg frittata filled with an abundance of local vegetables served with crispy bacon on the side. If that isn’t enough to fill you up, add a bowl of fresh fruit and yogurt as dessert! Now you are ready to start your day of sightseeing or lounging at Silver Beach!
