We bought a Groupon for the Springbrook Inn and decided to cash it in for two nights at the end of May. My husband and I have been working hard lately and we were looking forward to getting away and trying to "unplug" from our laptops, phones, etc.
We stayed in the Au Sable room (fishing theme) and enjoyed the spacious room, comfy bed, fluffy towels, lovely decor, and everything else. We loved the surroundings with all the large trees in the back, the relaxing atmosphere around the Koi pond, the wonderful Michigan breeze, and lots of birds and squirrels providing entertainment. The breakfasts each morning were very impressive. We have been to other B&Bs where you usually have to go to the eating area for breakfast and you sit with all the other guests and chat. At the Springbrook, they actually deliver breakfast on a tray right outside your door around 9am. The breakfast was artfully arranged on the plate and delicious. We had scrambled eggs, bacon, and fruit the first morning and some french toast, sausage and fruit the second morning. There was also juice and coffee/tea provided. It was wonderful to be able to sleep in, stay in our pajamas and eat a relaxing and delicious breakfast in our room while admiring the wildlife in the backyard.
The Tiki Bar was awesome and we actually went there both nights. (I wish it was closer to us so we could go there more often!) There is so much to look at in the Tiki Bar, I don't think you could ever see it all. The first night we happened to be there on Trivia Night and we had a fun time playing the game and enjoying good food and drinks. The second night we actually ate dinner inside at the East Bay Grille Restaurant and then went out to the Tiki Bar after dinner to have a drink and see what was going on. We ended up having a blast that night chatting it up with Matt, the owner. By the end of the night we were swapping stories and it felt like we were old friends!
We definitely recommend the Springbrook Inn! We had a fantastic time and will definitely be back!
