We’re celebrating The English Inn’s 96th anniversary this November – and you’re invited! Come enjoy a night of live music, dancing, food, and drinks with us! Friday, Nov 10, 2023 at The English Inn Restaurant & Pub.
The English Inn’s Medovue Estate has quite a history, and it all begins with Irving Jacob Reuter.
Reuter was General Manager and President of the Oldsmobile Corporation in 1925 when he purchased the property outside Lansing, MI as a home for he and his wife, Janet.
The resulting 10,000 square foot, two-story, cross-gabled, Tudor Revival “countryhouse,” was completed in 1927. The estate, named “Medovue” by the Reuters, included 15 manicured acres, with gardens, nature trails, an artesian well, swimming pool, and fishpond. All overlooking the Grand River in Eaton Rapids, MI.
The Reuters lived and entertained here until 1936, after which Irving retired and they sold the estate. Thereafter the property went through a variety of different hands. Finally, in 1989, it became what it remains to this day – the award winning English Inn Restaurant & Pub!
