A former auto baron's residence, this 1927 Tudor mansion will make you feel as though you've been transported to the English countryside. Perched on a hillside overlooking the Grand River, the Inn is a part of a 15-acre estate that includes formal gardens and wooded nature trails. The main house has six well-appointed bedrooms named for English towns or the royal family, a cozy pub, and library. Located in cottages on the grounds are twelve additional bedrooms each with fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs. The Inn's award-winning restaurant has been recognized as one of the nation's top 100 most romantic restaurants and includes a wine list bestowed with the Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator. A perfect setting for get-aways, executive retreats and family gatherings. In addition, a 200-seat, 10,000 sq.ft. banquet facility sits adjacent to the main house.
