Summer is rapidly approaching and, as it does, things are both literally and figuratively heating up! Planning on being in the area this spring? You’ll be happy to hear there are plenty of Lansing Michigan events planned near our Eaton Rapids inn!
While it’s true that Eaton Rapids is smaller and more remote than Lansing, that’s the appeal! Our home, on the historic Medovue Estate, is a calm oasis of manicured gardens and old world splendor along the Grand River. A soothing contrast to Lansing’s endless hustle and bustle.
The English Inn is less than a half hour’s drive from most Lansing Michigan events, yet our setting makes us seem world’s away. The Medovue Estate has an old world grandeur that hearkens to a different time and space. Whether you come for a drink, dinner, or Michigan lodging, The English Inn Restaurant & Pub will not disappoint.
