Saint John’s Resort has a rich history that begins in the late 1940s when St. John’s Provincial Seminary opened its doors, paving the way for more than 40 years of memories and learning. 

In 2021, William Pulte Family Management purchased The Inn at St. John's from the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit. 100% of profits from the resort go to The Pulte Family Charitable Foundation and are used to serve those most in need around the Metro Detroit area and the world. The late William Pulte worked closely with a small group of local business leaders and Cardinal Maida to finance and develop the former St. John’s Provincial Seminary campus into a hotel, conference center, and golf course.


The Pulte Family looks forward to upholding the rich history of the property, ensuring its continued legacy and value in the local community.


In October of 2000, the redevelopment of the main buildings into The Inn at St. John’s Conference Center created spaces for corporate and social conferences, wedding receptions and Catholic celebrations.


December of 2005 saw the addition of a Grande ballroom space with room for up to 450 guests. The center features stately Romanesque architecture, beautifully renovated to reflect its heritage; two regal ballrooms showcasing 25-foot ceilings with hand-painted inlays; a breathtaking two-story Atrium room; and twenty-two distinct meeting rooms, each with exterior windows for a bright, comfortable setting.

In January of 2006 The Inn at St. John’s Hotel and 5ive Steakhouse opened, offering 118 luxury guestrooms, fine dining steakhouse, refined bar and lounge, and in-room dining.

St. John’s golf course began with nine holes in the property’s earliest years and grew to 18 when the golf greens opened to the public in 1979. In the 1990’s, during the property’s redevelopment, nine more were added, creating the 27-hole course that now exists on site.

Today, Saint John’s Resort continues to offer guests impeccable service and a distinctive ambiance unsurpassed in Southeast Michigan. For meetings, conferences, weddings and a host of important occasions, the legacy of Saint John’s Resort lives on.
