Top Reasons to Stay at Cobblestone Manor Bed & Breakfast
Located just 30 miles north of Detroit, the historical Victorian-style inn was originally built in 1840 as an 11-room farmhouse. It still features period furniture, such as the writing desk in the Presidential suite that once belonged to Henry Ford.
It has manicured grounds that resemble a quaint cottage garden, with a gazebo, fountain, and walkways.
Guest rooms are outfitted with queen-size beds (king-size in the Presidential suite), and most have whirlpool tubs and fireplaces.
Each morning, innkeepers Paul and Heather prepare a complimentary breakfast in the sunny breakfast room or candlelit dining room. When it's featured on the menu, you can sample a Cobblestone—their signature dish—a flaky biscuit topped with cinnamon sugar and chopped pecans.
Auburn Hills, Michigan: Nature Parks and Detroit Pistons Headquarters
Auburn Hills is roughly 45 minutes northeast of Detroit. It has a subdued setting; state and national parks are accessible in almost any direction from Auburn Hills. The Clinton River cuts through Auburn Hills, and the Clifton River Trail follows it for more than 10 miles via a now-defunct rail line. Its tree-lined trails and postcard-perfect bridges are popular with bikers and hikers, and nearby Riverside Park features a canoe launch. It's worth it to check out Hawk Woods Nature Center, which spans nearly 100 acres of wetlands, forests, and ponds.
For all its natural beauty, Auburn Hills is also a destination for its city center—it's home to The Palace, headquarters for the Detroit Pistons. It also has Great Lakes Crossing Outlets for discounted designer clothing and a family-friendly dining experience at The Rainforest Café.
