General Information:

The Beach Inn was a famous 50 room resort hotel that goes back to the early 1900's at least, maybe before. It was right on the waterfront next to the main dock. The Inn also featured fresh fish dinners. Over the years, it hosted many events attended by famous dignitaries from far and wide. If you were a big shot and had business in Munising prior to the 1950's, this is where you stayed and held your events.

Tragically, the place was destroyed by fire in February 1951. There were plans to erect another hotel in its place but as far as I can tell those never came to fruition. The oldest aerial photo I could find was from 1953 so the Inn is not shown. Looking at the old photos, it did seem the place was next to the main dock and surrounded by trees. There was also a sidewalk running alongside which can be seen in the 1953 aerial. Today, the lot is occupied by a cruise line and parking lot, that is if I have guessed the location correctly.

The Beach Inn name lives on as another, far new hotel operating on M-58 (as of 2022) up the coast. It looks like a nice place, albeit far more modern than the original Beach Inn which was downtown on the waterfront.
