My husband and I just returned from a min-vacation to the Traverse City/Suttons Bay area of Michigan. We stayed at the fabulous Inn at Black Star Farms.
If you are looking for a place to have a destination wedding, spend a night or two of your honeymoon, or relax for an anniversary celebration, be sure to consider Black Star Farms.
Jill, the innkeeper on duty during our stay, welcomed us by name upon our arrival. After a surprise upgrade to a fantastic room (the Diadem) and a tour of the inn, she left us on our own to relax. Our room featured a king-size bed and a large fireplace. We read and relaxed for the evening, frequently looking out the large dormer windows at the gorgeous view. The Inn is located on a working farm, with vineyards, and a cheese house. (You get to sample the fruits of the farm, too!) Our room was across from the "Sauna & Spa", so last night we enjoyed that, too!
This morning, I woke up to the aroma of fresh-brewed coffee, made from locally-roasted beans. I didn't want to get out of bed, though; as the linens were so luxurious. However, as the smell of a gourmet breakfast cooking downstairs slowly wafted through the Inn, we were compelled to venture out of the cozy room into an equally cozy dining room, to a seat by the window, where we watched the horses graze and trot in the new snowfall.
I could write more and more, but I want instead to encourage you to visit for yourself. While there, I looked through several photobooks of weddings that were held at the Inn; what charm and elegance! Again, if you're looking for a wedding, honeymoon, or anniversary destination, be sure to consider The Inn at Black Star Farms. Oh, and tell Jill "Hello" from Tami at September's Bride!
