When the evening is this perfect, there is no better place than our backyard for a 4-course meal! Chef Sasha Ahmed brought her team to the Hop & Vine Inn and prepared a delicious meal in one of our townhome kitchens for the corporate retreat. So many chef options in the Fennville, Saugatuck, & Doulas area when it comes to have your meal prepared on site. Ask us if you'd like suggestions!
Bridget is the founding CEO of Kids Food Basket (KFB) and she just spoke in our living room! KFB is a nonprofit organization in Western Michigan who provides sack suppers to area elementary children (8000 of them per day!!), who would not likely receive an evening meal otherwise. Last season, we started offering materials for our guests to decorate the sack supper bags, and there were two things we didn’t know: ONE, that our guests (of all ages) would so willingly jump at the opportunity to show some love through artwork in their spare moments of vacation, and TWO, that the founding CEO would walk through our door today to personally share their mission with a group staying here for a company retreat. What a privilege to hear! Listening to her speak about the history of KFB brought us to the edge of tears, and makes us even more proud to be part of a community who cares for and supports each other! Thanks for sharing your passion - and for the selfie, Bridget! ;)
We're constantly overwhelmed with gratitude for our guests! Their kind words, sweet notes, and thoughtful actions leave us always exclaiming "We have the BEST guests!!"
The Hoemann family is one group that totally blew us away with their generous spirit. They held their family reunion here and brought their own cornhole game. Upon checking out, they let us know that they had so much fun playing cornhole as a family, that they were going to send us one, so future families could make the same fun memories that they enjoyed creating! Needless to say, we were overwhelmed with such an awesome gesture.
When Dustin from Butler's Cornhole Boards & More delivered it today, we completely freaked out about how incredible the board looked!! We had no idea the Hoemann family was going to the extent of creating a custom board. We love it, and we know our guests will love it for years to come.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Hoemann crew!!!♥️
