About seven miles west of Big Rapids, MI, is this wonderfully restored and expanded farmhouse that is now an inn. I haven't been to an area that is so quiet in a very long time. The grounds are friendly and inviting; the house interior has a quiet, modern decor with many inspirational elements. Rooms are spacious and well appointed; my... More

I stayed last weekend for Ferris State graduation. It's a shame that my son graduated because I won't need to return to the Inn. The Inn was like staying in a friend's home. It was impeccably clean and well appointed. The three innkeepers are friendly and are extremely knowledgeable about the area and the land. We were served a lovely... More

Being about eight miles west of Big Rapids and a little difficult to find the first time, but it was all worthwhile. We were fortunate to find a cancellation on graduation weekend at Ferris State College. This is a very pleasant place with caring innkeepers. The room in the new section was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was well prepared... More

I have stayed at and used the Inn for a number of experiences over the last (at least) five years. From just dinners to professional retreats and anything in-between the women of the Inn know how to take care of you. Marcia, Sharon and Pat have created an environment that creates memories. Immaculate & clean rooms, unbelievable food (they aimed... More

I have never come to the rustic gate in the winter, it extremely quiet and white. Snow slowly dropped from the sky,not a lot but steady, so beautiful. The aroma of fresh brewed coffee wafting up the staircase and Sharon cooking something delicious for breakfast. Oh true luxury and pure laziness. For our gathering it as great and look forward...

We were with a group of 11 ladies and had a perfect weekend! The rooms were immaculate. The food was extraordinary and made from scratch. The setting is peaceful and picturesque. We quilted, knit and scrap booked in the craft barn. The lighting was good and the temperature very comfortable with plenty of room for us. We already picked a... More

We stayed here one night before our son ran at a track meet at Ferris State University. I loved it here as I am a birdwatcher and the owners showed me trails to check out on the grounds including a nearby pond, woods, and fields. It's a pretty spot, hilly and very quiet yet not too far from Big Rapids... More

Area was quiet but business district was only 10 minutes away with golf, fishing, restaurants, shopping, etc. We stayed 3 days and wish we could have stayed more. We would definately would go again and recommend to... More

Spent the weekend with friends enjoying the fall colors and quilting in the meeting room and spectaular meals in the common dining room. Cannot say enough about Sharon's cooking! Rooms are very comfortable and immaculately clean. The location is rural and very scenic -- a great getaway. Limited cell service which is a plus to me!
