Stay On Purpose, Make Your Mark

Cartier Mansion Bed and Breakfast

Stay On Purpose, Make Your Mark

Cartier Mansion was built in 1905 where Warren and Kate Cartier raised their three boys. In 1950, the home was purchased by the second owner The Schoenberger family who resided here until 2005. Gary and Sue Ann Schnitker had dreams of making this home accessible to everyone and created a full bed and breakfast concept to share the rich history of this building and the families that lived here. Jenna and Chris Simpler purchased the property in late 2020 from the Schnitkers after 15 years of service and are now the fourth owners and caretakers of this incredible space.

We are an intimate 6 room vintage bed and breakfast. Explore our many rooms, still endowed with original woodwork, fixtures, flooring, and some of the Cartier's personal belongings. Cartier Mansion is only minutes away from the picturesque Lake Michigan shoreline, beaches, and some of Michigan's most beautiful State and Local parks.

We hope you will follow us on our journey as we continue to care for Cartier Mansion, The Carriage House, and make our mark on the local community. 

We are an intimate 6 room vintage-styled, boutique Inn. Since the 1950's the home has been beautifully maintained by the second owner The Schoenberger family, and currently owned by Jenna, Chris, and Ruby Simpler. Explore its many rooms, still endowed with their original woodwork, fixtures, flooring, and antiques. Cartier Mansion B&B is only minutes away from the picturesque Lake Michigan shoreline, beaches, and some of Michigan's most beautiful State and Local parks.

We now are offering for planned experiences guests where they can give back to their community around them. These optional volunteer activities not only help elevate others but elevate guests and leave lasting memories.
