A Historic and Romantic Lansing, MI Wedding Venue
The English Inn is a historic, Tudor revival mansion, situated on 15 manicured acres along the Grand River, just seven miles south of Lansing. The mansion and estate, named Medovue, was built by the Reuters family in 1927 and retains the stately, old world look it had when they were its caretakers.
The lush and inviting grounds include formal English gardens that are perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies. In fact, one of our most popular, outdoor wedding locations is a pergola on the wooded banks of the Grand River. The setting is surrounded by a garden with a fountain, which accentuates the pleasant sound of the river. A truly memorable outdoor ceremony location. You could hardly ask for a more beautiful setting. The photo opportunities are endless.

Every summer there’s a Dam Festival at the Historic Miller Property, which is about five miles from our luxury Michigan Bed and Breakfast and restaurant. This year it will take place on August 27, 2011 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Dam Festival was created so folks could learn about the history of Eaton Rapids, the surrounding area, and indeed the heartland of America. It celebrates the way things used to be “back in the day”. Visit a one-room schoolhouse, learn why Eaton Rapids was once known as the “Ice Cream Capital of the World”, and then enjoy a scoop or two at the historic ice cream parlor. See a blacksmith shop, an old general store, and one of the longest old barns in the state, as well.
Tours of the dams around Eaton Rapids will also be offered on Saturday, August 27. Dam tours are fascinating, especially since the heart of Eaton Rapids is entirely surrounded by water.
Act like a local and spend the weekend at our luxurious Eaton Rapids Michigan lodging. Enjoy the Dam Festival by day, and dinner at our gourmet, DiRoNA restaurant in the evening. A stroll through our expansive gardens to the pergola overlooking the Grand River is the perfect way to end any day.
