As innkeepers we sometimes get a quick peek into our guest’s lives. We are privileged to provide a quiet comfortable atmosphere for those who need to reconnect, rest, pray, and enjoy times away from the world.
This past weekend we hosted a newlywed couple. George and Angela were married on Saturday and spent their first two nights as husband and wife in the Garden Room. As we served them breakfast and chatted I thought they seemed very familiar.
After they had checked out and I was cleaning their room, I found a gift they had left us. Favors from their wedding included a packet of 8 note cards. Angela had designed and drawn the places they had been that had meant a lot to them as a couple. Two of the cards were the above picture of The Mill House. They had stayed with us in 2009, and considered it one of their favorite romantic spots. Along with the Mill House was a card with where they had been engaged, and the historic canal in Grand Rapids where they had both been employed as guides on the canal boat.
We are so honored to be a favorite place for Angela and George, along with many other couples who come the first time and then return again and again!
God Bless you Angela and George..May your marriage be blessed!!
