From our Guests: The Stunning Lewis House! My husband and I have come to The Lewis House in Whitehall, Michigan many times. However, over the past two years, we have not made our usual sojourn to visit. So, I decided I needed a little getaway time on my own. I went up for three nights and stayed in the Sunset Room. It was fabulous as always. Debi and Greg are incredible hosts, so thoughtful and I can say over time we have become friends. My room was so comfortable and had a restful time and really felt rejuvenated after my stay. You can’t go wrong when you visit The Lewis House. It is a dream come true in a small part of the planet. The food? Well, each breakfast is just marvelous and well thought out. The whole place is detailed for comfort. My husband and I are planning to come back in the fall together. What a wonderful time. By the way, they take COVID 19 seriously and require masks when inside the house, not your room and I felt safe.

Inn History

John C. Lewis was one of west Michigan’s most successful businessmen.He married Augusta Covell in 1865 and partnered with her brother in a profitable mill operation. The Lewises built this grand home in 1878. The home remained in the family until 1944 when the ‘Showplace of Whitehall’ was sold to the Hildebrandts who operated it as a 9-room boarding house called Lakeview Rooms. The Hildebrandt family continued to operate Lakeview Rooms until 1976 when the house was bought by the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. The arts camp used the house as an arts school and lodging for performers. Ultimately, a new theater and housing were built and the home was listed for sale. In 2009, Greg and Debi Hillebrand bought the home and began a 6 year renovation. The Lewis House opened in 2015 and is proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
