Our historic, Eaton Rapids estate includes sixteen acres of manicured gardens and walking trails along the Grand River. Add this to our award-winning restaurant, English pub, and accommodations in our historic Tudor revival Inn, and you have the makings of an almost storybook getaway.
For those looking to commune even more closely with mother nature, however, we recommend Woldumar Nature Center.

Our Michigan inn, restaurant, and pub is the ideal place to host your Lansing area holiday parties. We are a large facility with a variety of venues that comfortably accommodate anywhere from sixteen to two hundred guests.

The Thames Room (seats 24) features three walls of leaded windows, a fireplace, and views of gardens and the Grand River. The Devonshire Room (seats 50) features rich Honduran mahogany paneled walls, an elegant fireplace, and a baby grand piano. The Oxford Room (seats 16) features a large stone fireplace and expansive views. The Midford Room (seats 32) is the estate’s original dining room and looks directly out to the gardens. Finally, Medovue Hall (50 – 200 guests) is a grand setting with huge arched windows and views over the whole estate.
Our expansive grounds feature formal English gardens and views of the Grand River. There are walking trails throughout the fifteen acres – the perfect place to stroll after a meal. While not much is in bloom at this time of year, the gardens are a delightful place to take in a bit of fresh air or reconnect with an old friend.
Host your company holiday party here and your colleagues and employees will feel appreciated. Host a family party here and everyone will have a good time; there will be no frenzied running in an out of the kitchen while trying to enjoy the company of siblings, children, parents, and long lost cousins. Instead, reconnect over a glass of wine from our award winning wine cellar, or a pint at the pub. Everyone is the guest of honor at our Lansing area DiRoNA restaurant.
