After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $79, you get a one-night stay and a full breakfast at White Swan Inn Bed & Breakfast (up to a $159 value), located in Whitehall.
A charming old-fashioned house surrounded by shady trees, White Swan Inn Bed & Breakfast boasts four unique, cozy rooms that provide guests with a chance to unwind near the calming beaches of Lake Michigan. Four distinct bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and modern amenities, offer guests eclectic slices of comfort. The Cygnet Suite’s dark red carpet, queen-size bed and all-season fireplace provide a luxurious setting for relaxing, while its Ultra Bath Thermo Massage Tub fosters the ideal mood for a mini recreation of the Battle of Trafalgar. Wicker furniture, floral-print décor, and a birdhouse-shaped lamp line the Jasmine Room, while the Mariner Room’s is encased by vibrant blue walls and carpet.
Like grandma’s cooking resume, all reservations include homemade breakfast and snacks, made from fresh, local ingredients. Sip a beverage on the screened wraparound porch, or peruse the nearby shops, restaurants, bike trail, and the White River Light Station. White Swan Inn is a member of the Michigan Lake to Lake Bed & Breakfast Association, which monitors cleanliness, hospitality, and shuts down hot dog stands disguising themselves as bed and breakfasts.
