Property description

The Asylum Inn, located along the beautiful Lakeshore of South Haven, Michigan. 4lovely blocks to Lake Michigan Beach. The 3 story brick building was once a private hospital in the 1930's, founded by the Penoyer Family. Today, this Historic Building has been totally restored into a Inn with 3 Master Suites.

We sleep 18-20 guest comfortably. A unique place for Wedding Parties and Family gatherings. Each flat has it's own lock and key. But opens up to a Mansion. All 3 flats have Master Kitchens and Bathes. Some even have a Jacuzzi Bath. Full Living Rooms with Satellite TV. Fresh Linens, Towels & Bathing products.

Private deck for each flat. Common Courtyard with Charcoal Grill & Pic Nic tables. A great gathering place for family and friends. We accommodate small & large groups. Our Inn is centrally located from downtown and walking distance to the beaches, downtown and most attractions...4 lovely blks to Lake Michigan.

Lake Michigan is only steps away from the Inn. Walking distance to the Riverfront. Great Fishing and Charters available. We have several lakes in SW Michigan to enjoy. Beautiful beaches to swim and search for treasures. Huge Sand Dunes. Scuba diving is becoming a popular sport in Lake Michigan, with all the ship wrecks in our area. You gotta come dive for yourself. Sailboat ride's on the Friends Goodwill old time Ship, docked in the Harbor, Sunset Cruise is a must. Maritime Museum has a replica of the Old river boat for tours along the Black river.

Plenty of great restaurants in the area. All time favorites...Captain Nemo's for breakfast, Clementimes for lunch and Tello's or Thirsty Perch for Dinner. Looking for great Steak's. Gotta go to Sophia's on the Northside.

Private clubs in the area...Legion, VFW, Elks, the Moose and SH Yacht Club.

Golf Courses in the area, several to choose from. Kal-Haven Trail is the Bike Trail between South Haven~Kalamazoo, about 30miles. Local Wine Tours available.

The Asylum was totally restored in 2001. Leaving Charm & Character behind. This 3 story brick building has great history & awaits the Curious. The Inn is a place to Relax and Regain your thoughts. Adventure awaits your Friends and Family.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Mark & Tina Goodrich are South Haven Locals. We've lived here most of our lives. We have 5 Children, combined family. The Asylum Inn was founded in 2002. We nick named the buidling 'The Asylum'. It was in desrepair and needed alot of love. It was the 1st private Hospital in SH in 1930's. Our Children and Family together worked on the building to where it is today. We love to share the Inn with our Family & Friends...Great for private parties, birthdays or anniversary's. Or just simply get away. The building is totally quiet and built well.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
South Haven is a Beautiful place to Live and Vacation. We lived here most of our lives. The locals are very friendly. The Lake is breath taking. We absolutely love it. I have always loved old brick buildings. This one was full of charm and character. Mark & I bought the building for our home originally. But, after we bought it. We decided to keep it commercial. Not only was this our investment but our foundation.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The Asylum Inn is unique. We are one of the few to sleep all 20 of your family & friends. Staying together, but have your own Suite with Lock & Key. Great for those want to walk to most events. Walking only 4 blocks to Lake Michigan. Festivals are all within reach, yet far enough away for privacy and quite time. NEW ADDITION TO THE ASYLUM INN: The Pavilion Gardens and Gazebo. Great addition for Special Events and Parties. Event Planners on board. Accommodates 25-150 guest. Call me ahead for Event Planning...2015
