We stumbled upon this Bed & Breakfast on line. With gas prices as high as they are, staying closer to home for a short Memorial Day get away was a priority. Apparently, this was something that a lot of folks in Michigan were thinking as we found that many hotels were booked.
Which made the discovery of Cobblestone Manor, a historic inn & bed & breakfast such a remarkable find! It’s a wonderful place to stay if you’re ever thinking about a nice vacation spot in the Auburn Hills area just outside of Detroit Michigan.
Our stay marked our wedding anniversary. We met several couples who were newly weds or celebrating their anniversary as well. In fact, on the second day, chairs had been set on on the lawn for a picture perfect wedding. It was interesting to hear the story of the wedding from the bride and groom the next morning at breakfast.
Now, the breakfast at the Cobblestone Manor is exceptional. Imagine the delight of being seated at a nicely set up table with real china reflecting the soft glow of candlelight.
The gracious inn keepers, the Crandalls served the breakfast which consisted of an assortment of fresh fruits, yogurt, and home made granola. That was just the first course. The second portion of the meal included on day 1 a delicious French Toast with a orange glaze syrup, and on day 2, a mouth watering fritatta…Heather Crandalls’ recipe.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. Attention is paid to keeping the furnishings in a style which reflects the historic nature of the property. We were fascinated to learn about the extensive renovation which transformed this 1840 home into the gracious dwelling that guests from far and near enjoy today.
We enjoyed our stay enormously and think that you will too!
Cobblestone Manor is located on 3151 University Dr in Auburn Hills, MI 48326
