The cooler weather of recent days has made us think of comfort foods and cooking at home with the family. This is a perfect time of year to re-connect with your family and get cooking in the kitchen.
One of the many items we like to bake for breakfast here at the Inn is our Michigan baked apples. So simple and yet so yummy, baked apples are always one of our bed and breakfast guest favorites.
The first half of the Fall season in Southwest Michigan always seems a bit more on the rush and run part. We actually enjoy this later part of Fall as not only is much of the lakefront still beautiful (trees near Lake Michigan always take longer to shed their leaves), it is also much more slower paced and easier to get around.
As many of our guests know, we have connections with folks in Saugatuck, South Haven and of course Fennville. So when it comes to Halloween, we get kids (and kids at heart) from all over for the Halloween evening trick or treating event. Tonight will be no different I’m sure.
It’s always interesting to hear at breakfast time what our guests have been up to and exploring while in the Saugatuck area. This weekend our guests all selected different things to do during the day and night, but yet they all had a fantastic and romantic weekend getaway. One of the couples started their day with a hot air balloon ride that we helped them to organize, hiked up Mount Baldhead in Saugatuck, and then on to Halloween weekend events.
It’s not too late to come to Saugatuck, Fennville and the Southwest region of Michigan to experience this wonderful time of year. While many of the leaves are already falling, there still is a lot of colorful scenery, full pumpkin patches, farmer’s markets, haunted corn mazes and more. So make your plans to come for a visit today.
Running Rivers is company out of Douglas that provides Kayaks, canoes and peddle boats for you to explore the Kalamazoo river. You can go for an hour or three! What a great way to spend a lazy afternoon with the one you love. To find out more you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
On the side of the Inn there are three little ponds that all run into each other. It is always fun to walk over the to admire the flowers and watch all the frogs jump into the water. Now we are hearing more “jumps” and splashes then ever!! There are now at least 20 baby frogs. These cute little things love to have you watch them and talk to them.
Now I am not really a frog lover but these babies have caught my heart.
The Waterfront Film Festival is coming!
June 14th – 17th. This is an amazing event where film makers show their newest creations. This is one of the most talked about events in Saugatuck. Don’t miss it!
On Tuesday nights in downtown Fennville there will be FREE music concerts in the park.
One can stay at the Inn, walk to the concert and then enjoy dinner at Salt of the Earth or Fennville Station. This is all within walking distance. What a great way to spend a Tuesday night in the summer.
