What a charming place to spend a romantic weekend. The Way Inn is perfect to the last detail…pictures don't do it justice. Beautiful accommodations, an amazing home cooked breakfast, and the innkeepers gracious hospitality made it a weekend that we will long remember. Susan and Joel Suzanne and Jurgen Ann Arbor, MI

I Loved The Way Inn B&B!!!

5 on July 15, 2014

I was traveling from Chicago to Marshall and friends recommended I stay at The Way Inn. The location is in historic Marshall's downtown just off the Brooks Memorial Fountain and walking distance to Michigan Avenue, the "Historic Main Street" of Marshall, MI. The rooms have what you want as a traveler, especially a comfortable bed, dark blinds, and free WiFi. Andy, the owner, has managed to the delicate balance between accommodations and comfort. Besides the comfortable and clean rooms, the highlights for me were the REAL breakfast Andy cooked and ate with us in the morning (fresh fruit, a real quiche, and delicious coffee...Andy did check to make sure I didn't have any food allergies or dietary requirements), the beautiful trees surrounding the B&B and beautiful pool and gardens, and the conversations with Andy, the owner (he loves to answer questions about the history of the house and Marshall, give recommendations on restaurants, bars, and shopping in downtown Marshall, and even share some great stories about himself that will make you feel like family by the time you finish your trip!). I recommend The Way Inn Bed & Breakfast for romantic couples, historic tour trips, weekend escapes, or business travel stays. Best, John K. Schertz, TX
