Robins have been spotted in Allegan in the last few weeks. Large blocks of snow are falling off brushes, trees and roofs. So while spring may not be here fully, it is time to start thinking about the Holland Tulip Festival on May 3-10 with activities ranging from parades, foods, fireworks, tours, quilts and much more. Reserve your room at the DeLano Mansion Inn for 4 days and have the 5th day on us.
Another sign of spring is the Allegan Antique Market on April 27. Again, book over the weekend for 2 days and the 3rd day is on us. More than 200 exhibitors will be at the Allegan County Fairgrounds where you will find just the right antique for your home.
Watch for the newest package to be added to the DeLano Mansion Inn. With spring we will be offering a golf package with the Lynx Golf Course on M-89. We will set your tee time for you before you arrive. You will enjoy the beautiful course with dinner to follow as you look out over the Kalamazoo River valley before coming back to relax in your room at the DeLano Inn with a fireplace in every room and four rooms with whirlpools.
Stitch Back in Time - A Quilting Retreat in a Victorian Inn
"Stitch Back in Time"
A Quilting Retreat in a Victorian Inn
Mark your calenders and reserve your room for the first Quilting Retreat in Allegan, Michigan for the weekend of March 1 and 2, 2014. The plans are for you to finish one top and another item that is a surprise during your weekend stay. We will work on the quilting in the two elegant parlors of the Inn on the first floor.
Breakfast in the DeLano Mansion Inn will be provided each day for guests staying in the Inn with lunch and snacks all day on Saturday for everyone. Then Saturday night the group will have dinner at a local restaurant at the Lynx Golf Course. The Lynx Grill has prices from $12. to $19. on their menu and a great view overlooking the Kalamazoo River valley.
The rates on each room are for double guests and have been reduced to weekday rates. Stay two nights and you will save 50% on the second night. You may reserve on line or call 269-686-0240 and I will assist you with your reservation.
We are very excited about this first annual Quilt Retreat. We will make your weekend fun and enjoyable as you meet other quilters who love to quilt as much as you do. We look forward to seeing you on Friday, February 28.
Get Away from the Snow in Southwest Michigan at a Beach Party
As the snow does not seem to stop this winter in Michigan, we think it's time to enjoy the Beach Party at the LYNX. Then stay at the DeLano Mansion Inn, enjoying a warm fireplace and a whirlpool for two. This whole weekend will make the snow go away as you enjoy warmth, good food, a comfortable bed and breakfasts each morning in candlelight.
So mark your calenders for Saturday, February 1 for the Beach Party. Plan to stay two nights at the DeLano Inn and receive 50% off the second night. When your weekend is over, you will have forgotten how long this 2013-14 winter has been.
Come enjoy a fun, romantic weekend, bring another couple with you even to add to the enjoyment. We look forward to seeing you this weekend in Allegan! It's not too late to plan that trip away from the cabin fever we all have this winter.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. It even falls on a Friday this year.
It will be fun to celebrate with your special someone in a Romantic Bed and Breakfast with a bud vase of roses, a fireplace and whirlpool awaiting your arrival. To make the weekend even more special, you may request your breakfast be served in your room.
For your dinner plans, we have The Grill and the Lynx to offer for this special weekend. Let us know if you need reservations for either and the time you would like.
Also, we offer serveral Romantic Packages which you may enjoy during your Valentine's Weekend. We can arrange a massage, a Sleigh Ride or any other activities you may desire. Enjoy yourself when everything is ready for you when you arrive.
As the new Innkeeper at the DeLano Mansion Inn, I have been asked if anything changed in the Inn after Scott left. The answer is NO. You will find rooms look the same as they did when you have visted in the past. Since the Inn was decorated so beautifully and in the Victorian era, there was no need to change any of the rooms. We will continue to be a Romantic Inn which will provide a welcome rest and relaxation feeling as though you stepped back in time. During the months of January, February and March, if you stay three nights, the third night is free or if you stay two nights, the second night is 50% off.
If you find you would like a Sleigh Ride, dinner at a local restaurant or ideas for things you could enjoy in the area, I am always happy to help reserve any activity you would enjoy exploring. We have had several guests enjoy the Sleigh Ride through woods and fields in the country as this Michigan winter has had a lot of snow. One of the guests was even proposed to while on the Sleigh Ride and she did say YES!
Wild West Ranch Sleigh Ride
It is time to be thinking about Valentine's Day and a Romantic Getaway to surprize your sweetie. We have several Romantic Packages you could add to the room for the weekend (Yes, Valentine's Day is on Friday!). They begin at $80. with wine glasses to take home and other treats for your stay. Each morning you will have a full breakfast in our dining room with candlelight.
I look forward to seeing you in the coming months at the DeLano Mansion Inn.
I enjoy meeting people, planning events for guests at the Inn. I garden, sew, quilt , read and cook as hobbies. I enjoy many types of movies and playing games with family when we are together. I like history and have enjoyed sharing the history of the DeLano Inn with my guests. It is fun to live in a house built 150 years ago.
