Special Occasions

We can make those special occasions even more special. Let us know if you need something special in the room for your arrival. We can pick up flowers or refreshments to make the night extra special. Full sit down breakfast in the morning. We can also deliver a carafe of coffee at your door in the morning. Give us a call and let us know your desire. No problem to bring in dinner and just relax in peace. We generally join our guests for breakfast. The conversation is usually lively, warm and enjoyable. Drinks and snacks are always available to tide you over until dinner! There are several great dining choices in town and in Ann Arbor. Many people plan dinner at the Common Grill, a four star restaurant.
