Yes, the property is lovely and must be a popular wedding spot, but do not expect 4 star amenties. We were greeted with dozens of dead or dying fies on the sills of our room. Since I had made the reservations three months in advance, our arrival was not a surprise. I noticed visible dust on light fixtures and other surfaces. We could find no hangers in the closet. I had to beg for hangers at the front desk. The desk clerk solved the problem by taking hangers from the restaurant's closet. The property in listed as a Michigan historical site and it may be that imporvements can not be made. If so, that might explain the bathroom. You should be aware that our bathroom was straight out of the late 1920s. The tub is smaller than tubs of today and there is no surface area on the old, pedastle sink. No shelving either! We had to use the top of the toilet tank for storage.
The restaurant has a nice, warm setting, but its menu dates to the 1970s; upscale 1970s! The wine list is disappointing at best. Fortunately, the chef had a couple of contemporary of specials that showcased his talents. Breakfast was OK. We were served juice, coffee and a muffin prior to the entree. There was no choice of muffin and the muffin was loaded with nuts. Nuts are an issue for me. We did have a choice of entrees and I chose a quiche. Wrong choice! The quiche was cool, not even lukewarm and the crust was soggy! My husband chose the two eggs with bacon, which was the better choice. One coffee refill and we were ushered out. We knew that a large wedding receptions was scheduled for later that day. It may that the staff had a short turnaround time.

The English Inn is just such a place. ... more less
