More about the House

Each air-conditioned Queen Anne guestroom in the historic house is luxuriously appointed with a pillow-top bed and private 4 piece bath with tubs and plush and cushy towels. Handy conveniences include free high-speed internet.
The second floor bedroom settings and furniture selections are reminiscent of a time when the grand house, built in 1878, was the private residence of the Sage brothers – both of whom worked for the railroad. Port Huron was a booming port and rail center in the last decades of the 19th century.

An interesting fact is that in the fifteen years after the Civil War, almost 600,000 immigrants entered the United States through Port Huron, Michigan. It's hard to imagine, but during that period, Port Huron was the second largest immigration port of entry to the USA after New York City.

A sea captain named Alfred Chambers bought the Sage house in 1901 and stayed there until he passed away in 1935. After that, the house, like many old estate homes, lived many lives with still more stories.

Previously the “Sage House” from 2003 until 2011 when it closed.  The house then went through some major updates inside and out.  The kitchen was completely updated, and the outside was totally refaced to match her original elegance.  All the “gingerbread” was meticulously stripped of paint with heat guns by Ken and Sue Friddle, then the siding was all removed and replaced with new lap siding to match the original splendor.  Victorian Homes are often called “Painted Ladies” as they showcase a minimum of (4) colors, and this one catches the attention of many that pass by, and often stop to appreciate.

A bargain if there ever was one. 

The nightly room rates at the Pleasant Place Inn are budget buddies, especially when you consider a delectable breakfast is included in the price.
