Wifi throughout, laundry facilities on same floor (2nd). Just minutes from St. Joe shopping, beaches, and more

The space
Winner of the Morton House Museum's Historical Preservation Award after it's restoration, the 1905 Stewart Building is a real treasure of Benton Harbor.

Originally the home to stores such as The Central Music House, Harbor Furniture House, and an Army and Navy store, it eventually became the first in a list of taverns in 1946 until the massive restoration project in 1999 and becoming Paulie's Bar And Grille and later The Library Pub and Eatery. Now new entrepreneurs are hard at work getting a new restaurant ready to open in this historic space.

A wide assortment of breakfast and snack foods are included and stocked in the kitchen, refrigerator and freezer for your pleasure.
-Coffees, kcups, teas, sweeteners and flavored creamers
-Eggs, bacon, sausage
-Waffles, Poptarts, Oatmeals
-Bagels, English Muffins, butter, cream cheese, jelly
-Popcorn, chocolates, candy

It has always had apartments above it's businesses but now you have a chance to go back in time and experience life as a Benton Harbor resident yourself but with all the modern amenities today has to offer. High speed Comcast Business Class WIFI, laundry facilities on both floors, (shared and in both hallways), intercom and door buzzer, dishwasher, individual central AC/heat and of course plush full bathrooms make going back in time much more pleasurable.

Architectural details really make the spaces magical with hand worked Victorian era tin and paints from one of the few remaining old world metalsmith shops and Cherry trim and Oak floors balance beautifully with the exposed brick walls. Repurposed WWII era Naval windows that open so wide it's like being outside offer fantastic views of the parks and boutique stores in the Arts District.

Where you’ll be

Benton Harbor, Michigan, United States

This building was saved from demolition by Bryan 20 years ago and is one of the oldest in the city. He has won awards from Morton House Museum for best historic restoration. The Arts District has some of the coolest shops and restaurants in the area, one of which is 3 Pillars music, where they still buy and sell vintage vinyl records and music equipment.

Originally from the Windy City my family moved us to their vacation spot as a child and I grew up in the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor area. Working in restaurants and hotels my whole life the hospitality industry is second nature to me. To own my own little hotel is like a dream come true! I now manage two new venues in the Arts District, Hawks Nest At The Harbor and Secret Garden At The Harbor.
