I just keep humming “There’s a Sweet Sweet Spirit in this Place”, after the wonderful conversation with our Garden Room guests yesterday morning.  A pastor and his wife stayed the night in our Garden Room.  They are actually pastors to missionaries and have served in the old Soviet Block countries.

I woke up yesterday morning just feeling “out of sorts”.  Didn’t feel like cooking, serving, and smiling!  But, because it is my “job”, I quickly drank a cup of coffee, threw up a few quick prayers, kissed my hubby goodbye and got to work.

The Garden Room couple requested an in room breakfast and I also had a couple to serve in the common room, both at 9am.  I had gotten up even earlier to serve breakfast to a cross country bicyclist who also stayed the night here to escape the heat and rain from the day before.  Sure, it would have been easier to serve all at the same time in the common room…but as it says in 2 Corinthians 14…Christ’s love compels us!  So I was obedient and served in order to please our guests and God.

Thank God he knows exactly what he is doing!  Because of the privacy of the Garden Room, a wonderful encouraging conversation took place between this tired innkeeper and this Godly couple.  We shared stories and encouraged each other.  What a blessing!

The pastor guest reminded me that there was a “sweetness” in this place….His beautiful wife left a very encouraging note in the room journal:

A Garden of Delights
Delightful Room- great bed!
Delightful Atmosphere- the Lord is here!
Delightful Garden- we are inspired!
Delightful Hospitality- because of you!
Delightful food- ahh! those scones!
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart!
We serve our guests with the best we have.  If their needs are complete privacy we are very sensitive to that.  We are here if they want to chat about the history of the inn, places to visit, or our story.  We are thankful to be able to serve all in this place because His love compels us!

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!
