We dined at the restaurant last evening to celebrate a special occasion. Both of us thought at first that this would be an excellent place to return to for future special events. The atmosphere did not make up for the food sadly. The french onion soup was sharp tasting, nearly like that of worcestershire sauce. The prime rib (ordered to... More

We started with the cheese plate, jumbo shrimp and figs. The cheese plate was good, the crackers could have been better as they were butterfly crackers or ones you just find at any old supermarket. The 'jumbo' shrimp were small and definitely not worth the $12. I could have gone to Kroger and got the same ones. The dinner rolls... More

The elegance of the early 1900's has not been lost at this out of the way mansion. While we didn't stay overnight the rooms are mostly original decor and well preserved. I had to smile because this is exactly the kind of intimate place I looked for to take my wife before we were married. Grounds are large enough for... More

My wife and I decided to stay at the English Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we stayed in the IVY Cottage...very quite and private with fantastic views. The room was recently redone and is quite cozy. However with the beautiful venue the dinner that evening was lacking. Both my wife and I ordered the prime rib dinner. Both dinner... More

We have stayed here a total of 4 times now. We stay in the Croquet cottages, which are posh and elegant feeling while still being incredibly cozy. We often splurge and add the "Complete Romance" package to our room which includes champagne and a 5-course meal. I have never had a better meal in my entire life. I've tried the... More

The English Inn is located about ten minutes South of East Lansing. It's the former home of an auto baron, built in the late 20's. There are rooms in the old house, where we stayed, but there are outlying cottages with what you could call updated fixtures and comforts. The Inn has a restaurant on the main floor (I'll post...

We had never visited this part of Michigan before and found the area to be delightful. The English Inn has quite a history and was a great venue for a wedding. Rooms vary from the main manor house to new cottages to a home with shared common rooms and private bedrooms. We stayed in the home with other wedding guests.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Occasionally, when you may least expect it, you come across a spot in the world where time seems to have stood still, where graciousness of spirit and personal attention to detail still thrive, where the hustle and bustle of the modern world are shut and the lingering taste of a good Burgundy on your palate is all that matters. The English Inn is just such a place. ... more   less
