Michigan Golf Retreat

May 3rd, 2010 by insideout

When was the last time you went away, just you and your golf clubs?

We suggest you wait no longer, and plan a golfing holiday soon. Stay at our Eaton Rapids lodging, and golf at one of the many golf courses near the inn. Bonnie View Golf Course, just down the road, is said by many to be the best golf course in the area. Chisholm Hills and Branson Bay Golf Clubs are also nearby – both are 18 hole courses with gently rolling terrain and woods.

Charlotte’s Courthouse Square

March 17th, 2010 by insideout

Charlotte, MI is a charming town about 15  miles east of our Lansing MI bed and breakfast. It is a lovely place to pass an afternoon while you are staying at the inn. The main street of Charlotte has many fine shops, and there are several good eateries in town.

After you explore a bit, head to the 1885 Courthouse Museum. You’ll find an authentic 1900’s farm kitchen there, along with a Victorian Parlor. Visit a One Room School House, and a 19th Century Doctor’s Office. In addition, there is a Military Exhibit featuring historic uniforms and interesting information about older military practices.

The Eaton County Hall of History gives a fairly detailed history of every town in Eaton County, and the Native American Exhibit talks about the First Peoples of this region.

The Courthouse Museum is a great way to learn about the history of this part of Michigan. You are sure to find it worth the trip whether you live in Michigan or come from out of state. Architecture buffs will appreciate the beauty of the building, and history buffs will appreciate the exhibits.

When you return from Charlotte, enjoy a light meal and drink in the pub of our Michigan bed and breakfast, or a more formal dinner in the restaurant. It is a refreshing way to close the day.

Toast the Women in Your Life

March 9th, 2010 by insideout

March is the month for women. International Women’s Day and National Women’s History Month are two reminders that it is important to recognize and honor the women in our lives – our mothers, grandmothers, sisters and daughters.

Treat the women in your life to a night at our Eaton Rapids bed and breakfast. Let them stay in one of our elegant rooms, in the height of comfort. Dine in our elegant restaurant, or more casually in the English pub. Raise your glass to the women you love.

You will awaken to fresh coffee outside your door. A full, gourmet breakfast is served weekend mornings, and a satisfying Continental breakfast is served during the week.

Everyone likes to feel appreciated. Sometimes all it takes is making time for one another. Perhaps you simply want to treat the women you love to an elegant meal at our Lansing area inn. Your appreciation will shine forth with lunch or dinner, at the pub or in the more formal dining room.

Happy New Year

The innkeepers and staff of this Michigan bed and breakfast wish to thank you for your patronage in 2009. Whether you stayed at the inn, enjoyed a meal at our Lansing restaurant or simply raised a glass at the pub, we were happy to serve you.

We look forward to your return in 2010, and to welcoming new guests.

Happy New Year.

Welcome to the English Inn

December 7th, 2009 by insideout

Occasionally, when you may least expect it, you come across a spot in the world where time seems to have stood still, where graciousness of spirit and personal attention to detail still thrive, where the hustle and bustle of the modern world are shut and the lingering taste of a good Burgundy on your palate is all that matters. The English Inn is just such a place.
