Stay || rabbit run inn
The continuation of the Husband’s birthday celebration extended into the weekend with an overnight getaway to Harbor Country. We ventured off to Sawyer, Michigan and opted for the ‘Rabbit Run Inn‘, thanks to Chicago Home & Garden Magazine for the reminder on this spot. It was added to the ‘to-stay’ list last year, but we never got around to it. This part of Michigan is beautiful, and for us best enjoyed before or after the summer crowds. Not only does it allow us to escape Chicago vacationers [we just left there], but it enables us to find B&B accommodation for one night without the minimum night clause and no need for reservations in advance.
The place really is charming with four rooms available for stays that are spacious and very comfortable. A queen sized bed covered in soft feather bedding just begs to be jumped on. A kitchenette provides a small fridge just right for keeping snacks and ‘adult’ beverages in. It is also stocked with milk, juice and butter for the pastries that are left by the door for breakfast every morning. There is lots of attention to detail, even down to the coffee maker that gives you options of filter coffee or espresso, and bikes for taking a leisurely meander to the lake and past all the adorable cottages. We particularly enjoyed the corner sofa for lounging and enjoying a glass of wine and some cheese and nibbles collected from the day’s adventures to farm stands and local gourmet stores …… more on that by clicking here.
