If you like to celebrate the arrival of the new year with good company and excellent food, consider spending New Year’s Eve at our Lansing Michigan restaurant. You can come as you are or you can dress your finest. You can tuck into perfectly prepared steak, poultry, or seafood. You can sip fine wine, and toast the arrival of 2012 with champagne.
Our Eaton Rapids Fine Dining Restaurant was recently reviewed by Dine Michigan. We are pleased to note that our reviewer and his companions were thrilled with their meals. They tried our Escargot, our Duck Sausage, and our Mushroom Caps. They tucked into our Classic Filet Mignon, our Lobster Stuffed Walley, and our Duck Cassoulet. They finished with Crème Brulée, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake, and White Chocolate Mango Mousse.
We strive to create a comfortable environment, so our diners can focus on each other and savor the food. We let the elegance of the historic Tudor mansion speak for itself. The English Inn is a wonderful setting for special occasions: weddings, anniversaries, birthday celebrations, and New Year’s Eve.
Join us at The English Inn on December 31, 2011, and raise a glass to the best of 2011, and the new year to come.
The next time you need to congregate members of your business, consider hosting your meeting at our Lansing area inn. Getting out of the office is good for morale, especially if you are in an elegant setting, with excellent food and drink.
Here at our Lansing area inn, we strive to create the best possible experience for your business meetings. With five distinct rooms available, you are sure to find an area that suits your tastes and needs.
Honduran mahogany paneled walls lend an air of sophistication to The Devonshire Room, which comfortably seats fifty. The Midford Room is the original dining room of this Tudor Revival Home, and easily accommodates 32 guests. Views of the Grand River make The Thames Room a delightful setting for twenty-four people, while the stone fireplace and terrazzo floors make The Oxford Room a cozy choice for intimate winter meetings of sixteen or less.
Should you need to host a large group, Medovue Hall is for you. Originally built in 1927, it’s marble foyer and elegant features create a sophisticated ambiance that will enhance any business meeting. It is perfect for up to 200 guests, but can also comfortably hold as few as 50 people.
Your event will be a success if people are pleased with the food. Knowing this, we make the meals a priority. Mingle over hors d’oeuvres and cocktails before settling down to a lunch of pecan encrusted pork or seared salmon, or a dinner of filet mignon or chicken oscar. These are just a few of the options; your guests will have an ample selection of entrees, guaranteeing they all find something they will enjoy.
Sometimes it makes good business sense to treat your people to something special. They will certainly feel appreciated after meeting at our historic Lansing area Conference Center.
One resolution we should all make for 2010 is “take time out for ourselves”. Even better, take time to be with someone you love.
It’s easy to return to our hectic schedules after the holidays, working long hours and generally running ourselves ragged. Yet taking a little time for ourselves makes us more efficient and happier in the workplace. How much more true is that when we share a special getaway with a partner or good friend?
Our Southern Michigan inn is conveniently located between Lansing and Kalamazoo, in the charming town of Eaton Rapids. Our historic Michigan bed and breakfast sits on 15 splendid acres overlooking the Grand River, with manicured gardens and walking paths. Once you make your way here, you need not leave until it is time to check out.
Should you choose to indulge in our Ultimate Getaway Package, we’ll provide a champagne dinner for two in our elegant dining room. Breakfast is of course provided, and lunch is available Monday through Friday.
It’s a little too cold and snowy to enjoy the gardens right now, but the views are always good. Snuggle together for intimate conversation, curl up with good books, or enjoy watching a movie together in your room. The simple fact that you take this time to be together is important.
