About The Fenton Hotel

Well preserved in spite of its years; the Fenton Hotel tavern & grille still stands, solid and hospitable, greeting hungry patrons as it did when it was first built when the railroads came to Fenton in 1856. It was listed as the "The Vermont House” in the states earliest Gazetteer, Seed & Flint were the builders and owners. Mr. Seed himself became the first landlord. In 1868, Abner Roberts was the proprietor of the hotel, which was named the Fenton House at that time. After many changes in ownership, D.W. DeNio purchased it in 1882 and renamed it the DeNio House. DeNio thoroughly overhauled, papered and furnished it in style. A grand opening party was given under the management of the Carpediem Club, a social group composed of the town’s leading Citizens; nearly 200 guests danced the mazy waltz on a canvassed floor in time to the excellent music furnished by an orchestra from Owosso. The dinner prepared by Mrs. DeNio was tastefully arranged and the table was loaded with everything an epicure could desire. The grand opening was a grand success and gave evidence that the DeNio House was the best kept house between Detroit and Grand Rapids.
