Picture 1835 and you are there - hand-hewn beams, creaky stairs, beautifully-appointed rooms, but the 1976 renovation makes it very comfortable and simply lovely. The innkeeper served our breakfast in the cozy dining room and shared stories with us. We had the Charles Gorham Room on the first floor just off the front porch and overlooking the Brooks Fountain.

I stayed at this inn with friends. I highly recommend it to travelers in the Marshall area. Breakfast was excellent and we were treated to popcorn in the evening! My friends and I enjoyed tea in the afternoon, too. The atmosphere is wonderful and the innkeeper was so nice. I am planning to take my husband back sometime soon! Check... More

We stayed one night at the National, found it historic and lovely. The Inn has been renovated true to the period and the surrounding area is lovely, also with many historic buildings. Our room was the Anne J. Ells, one of the smaller, but we toured the other rooms after check out the following morning, all beautifully appointed. The Ells... More

This place was stunning. Not one complaint. Clean, comfortable & relaxing describe my stay. The food was delicious & the coffee was hot. I loved the vintage decor! There is a garden seat to enjoy a quiet night. Popcorn is available at night for a treat!

My husband surprised me with a night away (without the kids)! We had a wonderful stay at the National House. The Inn is historic and charming, the breakfast and afternoon reception snacks were delicious! All of the accommodations are outstanding but the real winners here are the staff. Mary and Deb were amazing and made our stay golden. We plan... More

My husband surprised me with an overnight at this B&B for my birthday. The place was beautiful!!! They had a nice birthday treat for us waiting in our room upon arrival. We toured the house and each room was nicely decorated with historical memorabilia. It is the oldest building in the county. You can see the original wood throughout the... More

We stayed one evening, the hostess was pleasant and the breakfast was filling. The bedroom was rather small but that could be expected considering the age of the building. The Nation House if a landmark hotel with room on both the first and second floors. If you're older I would suggest asking for a location on first floor making it... More

We've been coming to the National Inn for almost 30-years. Each time we've had different rooms, so we can say there are good ones and bad ones. One thing to say, we love them all, including the ones that are near the traffic circle. It's an old place. The floors creak. Some bathrooms are dated. It's part of the experience.... More

This was my first visit to Marshall [even though I live less than 100 miles away!] but it definitely won't be my last visit to Marshall, and the NATIONAL HOUSE INN will be the go-to place to stay! Where to start? So lovely. So nicely decorated. Clean and welcoming. Beginning with check-in process, the Innkeeper, Debbie, was so friendly and... More

Admittedly, I am spending my only night here. That said, I have been impressed by the ambience of the reception and the historic space itself to give high recommendations. The Gordon room is small but overlooks a quieter garden. It's cozy with its little fireplace. Nancy allowed us to check in a little early. That was so accommodating and much... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy simple pleasures at The National House Inn. Read a book on the porch, warm by a crackling fire, relax with afternoon tea, enjoy the delicious breakfast, or treasure some "down" time in one of the parlors. We offer all the luxuries of today with the same gracious hospitality first enjoyed by stagecoach travelers some 170 years ago. We are within walking distance of dining, shopping and many attractions in historic Marshall, Michigan. See why the National Trust of Historic Preservation named our town as one of their "Dozen Distinctive Destinations" in the country! We are in a National Historic Landmark District that includes 850 structures. Do you ever wonder where the fast lane ends? You found it! ... more   less
