Wedding Weekend

My husband and I stayed in one of their new cottages for the weekend to attend a wedding. Our cottage was so comfy and cute. Large sleeping area and bathroom. The food and service in the restaurant was awesome and they have a cute English pub in the downstairs of the inn. Would definitely come back.

Our grand daughter got married here last night. I was so impressed by everything at this site. The food was fabulous. The wait staff superb and everyone on site was excellent. The property can not be properly described. It is beautiful! There is a pergola for outside ceremonies, but plenty of room if it has to be moved inside quickly.... More

we celebrated my husband's birthday by booking the ultimate getaway package - included a premium room for one night, dinner, and champagne, and breakfast the next day. The dinner was great - very relaxing - a good waitstaff - attentive without being intrusive. The breakfast was okay - the muffins and fruit were fantastic but the pancakes tasted like they... More

We celebrated our daughter's college graduation at the English Inn. What a lovely setting for such a wonderful occasion! The food was exceptional, the wait staff professional, and the grounds beautiful. We took wonderful pictures post-commencement after our dinner. We'd return to the English Inn for another special occasion.

Last Sunday, I went to the English Inn with three members of my family to enjoy the beauty of the setting, the usually excellent food, and a chance to catch up. We were given an excellent table that we had requested. The menu offered a wide range of choices including five dishes featuring lobster (one of which was lobster on... More

Lovely building, with formal dining room upstairs and traditional English pub downstairs. The fish and chips and lobster bisque are to die for!!!

The English Inn is always a fun evening or overnight or weekend getaway. We have been here for all of these and have come a number of time with friends for a get away. It is a nice retreat close to Lansing but feels like we are going away. Nice to walk the paths down along the river.

As a mother-daughter treat,we stayed at the Inn and had supper one evening. The food is simply amazing. The beef was some of the best I have ever tasted cooked perfectly, the pasta dish was very good but paled in comparison to the beef. The salad had a very tasty dressing. The service was also excellant- helpful, respectful..all the things... More

Ah - The English Inn is an establishment with a setting and ambiance unmatched in the Lansing area. Although I have not been an overnight guest (yet!) I have dined there on numerous occasions and have not once been disappointed. When you enter it is like a step back in time to those luxurious days seen mostly now in old... More

My wife and I had lunch here to celebrate our anniversary. We don't live anywhere near the English Inn but decided to take a long ride in the country and check it out. It was well worth the trip. The elegance of this mansion from yesteryear cannot be overstated. Our waiter was attentive but not obtrusive. The lunch menu is... More
