Enjoy the snow while it's here.

Snow, snow, snow!

It’s easy to grumble about the snow. If it comes down hard, fast, and heavy enough, it can impact our work and play schedules for days. Simple things like restocking the cupboards become challenging. Travel becomes an odyssey, and once you get to where you were going, you may find it closed.

Case in point, our Eaton Rapids, Michigan, Restaurant is closed today due to heavy snows.

Nonetheless, snow is also cause for celebration, for snow days are not without their merits. Parents home from work with their children home from school suddenly have time for snow ball fights and building snow forts. Such hard work must be followed by a steaming mug of hot chocolate and a cuddle with a book, preferably by a hot fire. What was going to be an ordinary day is suddenly transformed into something magical, the memories of which will warm hearts for years.

Our Eaton Rapids Restaurant is now a DiRoNA

July 5th, 2010 by insideout

We are pleased to announce that our Michigan bed and breakfast restaurant has been accepted to DiRONA.

Dine outdoors this summer at our DiRoNA recognized restaurant.

DiRona stands for Distinguished Restaurants of North America. According to their website, the goal of this non-profit organization “is to recognize restaurants that strive for consistent excellence, and to help consumers find the very best in distinguished dining…. A DiRōNA restaurant is not classified by seating numbers or gross sales, but by the attention to detail shown in every aspect of your dining experience: hospitality, cuisine, ambiance, service.”

At some point in the recent past, anonymous judges from DiRoNA dined at our Michigan fine dining restaurant and were pleased by their experience. We are honored that our Eaton Rapids inn, restaurant and pub is one of only four restaurants in the state of Michigan awarded entrance into DiRoNA.

We are thankful for the hard work and dedication of our team – without you, we could never have done this. We’d also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of you who let us feed you.

We hope you’ll make time to come dine with us this summer. Stay at night or two at the inn, or simply come for a good meal.
