SPRING BREAK TIME IS HERE
You don’t have to travel far to get away this spring!
At Rabbit Run Inn, benefit from our off-season rates and through May 15, our spring getaway special of “stay three nights, get one night free”.
There’s plenty to do in the area – dining at our numerous restaurants, antiquing and gallery hopping, visiting local farms, vineyards and breweries; walking/hiking our many diverse beaches and nature preserves…
…but, if you enjoy resting and “not doing anything special”, you can be treated to watching our pond and woods come alive from one of our room decks or outdoor gazebos.
“Cocoon” in one of our rooms with cable and Apple TV, WiFi, wet bars with refrigerators and Krups coffee/espresso makers; relax on our sectional sofas.
Rabbit Run Inn has only a few rooms available on weekends in July but do plan on taking advantage of our summer week day special (*) as well as making your reservations early for May, June, and August.
Rabbit Run Inn Summer weekday special: stay 4 or 5 weekday nights and get 1 night free. Sunday through Thursday
THE “GREAT MIGRATION”
Looking for a “natural diversion”? Gift yourself, a birding friend or family member to a spring-time stay at Rabbit Run Inn! We have identified as many as twenty different species of birds at the Inn from hawks to warblers and we are fortunate to be located minutes from migration stopovers along the Lake Michigan lakeshore. The “Great Migration” occurs every spring, from mid-April to Memorial Day in our end of Harbor Country. Call 269-405-1050 to reserve your “bird-away” at the Inn and we’ll send you a Berrien County Birding Guide and schedule of spring birding meets in our area.
ENJOY A WINTER PICNIC… YES, A WINTER PICNIC!
Make an afternoon of a picnic at one of our parks and a visit to one of our local farms growing vegetables and micro-greens all year. Reward yourself with your own “eco-tour”!
For a list of local food markets who can provide sandwiches and other picnic items, email the Inn at email@example.com. We also have sandwich menus for you to look over when you arrive.
