Now is the perfect time to get away to Michigan. Winter is over, the birds are singing, flowers are blooming, and the weather is warming up. Shake off the winter blues, kiss work goodbye, and revel in the joy of springtime. From outdoor fun like biking and birding, to local attractions and great food, here are 5 spring activities in Michigan to enjoy when you stay with us at our romantic Castle in the Country Bed and Breakfast.
Experience Wildlife & Birdsong
Our charming inn is located on 65 lush, expansive acres. Meander around the property and keep an eye out for interesting, native wildlife like the pileated woodpecker, black white-tailed deer, the illusive fisher, albino robin, and more. Our country estate is also an ideal location for birding. Spot unique birds throughout the landscape and enjoy hearing their cheerful springtime chirps. (Don’t forget your camera and binoculars!)
Enjoy Outdoor Fun
Try something new this spring, and take a ride on a fat tire bike. It’s unique and something a bit more special than your typical bike riding experience. We’ll provide the bikes, the route, the helmets, and the water bottles. All you have to do is have a blast! (Add our Fat Tire package to your reservation when booking.) If you would like to bring your own bike, ask us about the best trails and we can point you in the right direction. Try Kal-Haven Trail, a 33 mile rails-to-trails pathway connecting the cities of Kalamazoo and South Haven. Biking is just the start when you spend time around the Castle. Go kayaking or paddle boarding at our very own private lake or hike through the wooded trails on our 65 acres. Ask your innkeepers for more recommendations on their favorite hiking, biking, and outdoor adventure destinations.
Drink the Best of the Best
For a specially curated experience, try our Craft Beer Adventure or Winery Tasting Room Experience. Each of these special add-ons were carefully put together for guests like you who want to experience wonderful food paired perfectly with hand selected beer and wine choices. (Although transportation is not provided, we recommend that our guests come back to the inn to enjoy their chosen beverages on the outdoor decks or near our outdoor fireplace.)
Explore the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park
Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is located in Grand Rapids. If you’re in the mood for a mini road trip, this 55 minute drive is well worth it to spend some time exploring this popular Michigan attraction. Known as one of the 100 most-visited museums in the world, they welcome more than 650,000 guests every year! See 200 incredible sculptures and marvel at the beauty of numerous indoor botanical gardens and outdoor exhibits across the 158 acre campus. See what all the buzz is about!
