Our daughter was married at the pavilion by the river, day and ceremony were perfect, grounds were
beautiful, many guests had not been to English Inn before, several mentioned they would like to come back and spend the night for a special event. Staff was gracious, never flustered even when we worried about small details that needed immediate attention. We and several guests spent the night after the wedding, we didn't feel rushed to leave exactly on time next a.m. as we had lots to pack up. Extra meals and cake were given to us next morning to take home. Added two unexpected children at very last minute, not a problem for the staff. Would recommend The English Inn to anyone wanting to schedule a special event, it
was relaxing, felt special and like stepping back to a quieter and more genteel time. Adriana, our wedding
coordinator could not have been more helpful. Thank you to everyone involved.

We live 2 hours away from the English Inn but the staff were very accommodating and flexible whenever we wanted to come and plan out the date. The place looks amazing for our wedding day, except for the pouring rain right after the ceremony; but I doubt there's anything they can do about that. The wedding was a lot of fun. The place gave it a elegant and timeless feel and the guests loved it! We stayed at one of the new cottages and absolutely loved it!

We knew the English Inn was going to be lovely when we booked it for our wedding, but we never dreamed of how perfect everything would be! There is not a single thing that we would have changed...the food, rooms, staff, scenery, EVERYTHING! Thank you Allie and everyone else for making our day magical We can't wait to come back on every anniversary!

The Inn was amazing and beautiful and so easy to work with. The wait staff was top knotch. I appreciated the attentiveness of the staff, particularly when a guest spilled water all over the table linens. The waiter quickly reset the entire table. I highly recommend!

I had my wedding ceremony and reception both at the English Inn in Eaton Rapids, MI. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of the staff there. I worked with their wedding coordinator Allie and she went above and beyond my expectations of what I needed and wanted. I was able to put out all of my decorations in the reception area the night before so as not to be scrambling around the next morning with everything. I also was able to get down to the pergola area early the next morning to do my chair and outdoor decorations with the help of the staff letting me into the hall where I had stored my decorations the night before. After the ceremony was over, the staff willingly helped my family gather up all of the chair decorations that we would later take home.

After speaking with a number of our guests who attended the event, they were more than taken care of at the reception. The staff again went out of their way to make sure our guests were served in a professional and timely manner. Our guests also commented on how good all of the food was and that no one went home hungry. We of course having been to the English Inn on a number of occasions for dinner already knew the food was outstanding and chose a variety of things for our guests to eat that day.

My event was beyond my expectations and the grounds of the Inn are extremely beautiful with highly landscaped flowers and greens making it a perfect place for the photographer to take a number of beautiful photos for our event. Also with the pergola backing up to the Grand River, it made for even more stunning photos along the bank of the river.

The English Inn is a place that I would highly recommend to anyone holding a wedding or any other type of event. It is not only stunningly beautiful but the food and service of the staff are outstanding.

Thank you English Inn and your staff for making my dream day better than expected!

The English Inn is a beautiful place to have your wedding. They are one of the more expensive venues in the Lansing area, but you certainly get what you pay for. The grounds are kept up very well. In fact, that was one of the first things I noticed when we started looking for venues in April 2012. The other places we looked assured us that things would be green and starting to bloom in mid to late May (around the time we were hoping to get married), but the English Inn already had flowers planted and lush, green grass. The food and cake were spectacular. Your guests will get a meal that is what you'd expect to get ordering off a menu at a restaurant, not something that tastes like it was made for a crowd. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had some guests come up for our wedding who previously thought they wouldn't be able to make it (which is great - the more, the merrier!), and there was never a peep or voiced concern from the staff. They took care of getting our guests chairs and food as if they were expecting them. The English Inn seems to put a lot of thought and care into making sure your wedding day is special. They even put fresh flowers on our dinner plates, which I thought added a nice touch. We received so many compliments about the English Inn. We would definitely recommend them to other couples looking to get married in Mid Michigan.
