Grand Rapids Applebutter Festival, 2010 is officially in the record books. Record temperature and crowds made for an eventful day. The Mill House was full and scones and cookies were purchased. The picture above is of the “Joyful Confections” crew. Lots of baking, packaging and selling for one day!

Open for business early in the morning, our favorite scone lovers from “Dandy’s Lane” a unique gift shop in Grand Rapids, stop for their morning scone fix.

The local high school athletic boosters set up right outside The Mill House. They start their Bean Soup at 3:30am and sell buffalo burgers along with the soup.

Our friend and “handyman” around the inn, Will and his dog Auggie, stop to say hello! Our own inndog, Ruby, spends the Applebutter Fest at their house so she doesn’t have to deal with the crowds!

Alongside The Mill House backyard is a display of old farm equipment, this picture just gives an idea of the early morning crowd. The Grand Rapids Applebutter Fest is held the second Sunday of October each year. Crowds swell to up to 50,000. We haven’t heard the official count yet, but we have heard rumors is was a record. Next year The Applebutter Fest will be celebrating 35 years.

The wife and I stayed here for our one year anniversary and had a great time. The owners are so nice and caring. It is a quiet and romantic place to stay, with great views and quaint historic rooms with a lot of character. We will definitely be back again!

We visited the Mill House for our second time in the Grand Rapids area. Ron and Kathy even made sure to have the local bald eagle put in an appearance on one of our river walks. Clean spacious room, pleasant company and bacon scones. A slice of heaven in NW Ohio.

One of the best overnight stays we have ever taken. First, you are greeted with warmth and kindness. The Mill House is a true getaway from the rush and stresses of life. The rooms are all very inviting and a place of refuge. The snacks are best around and the breakfast felt like home with relatives. Will recommend this place to everyone and returning very soon!
