Treat your loved one to an old-fashion horse-drawn carriage or sleigh ride. Spend the night in our once-upon-a-time one-room school house. Enjoy a delicious breakfast, fields for walking, songbirds and farm animals for the children. Everyone welcome.
Horse&Carriage is nestled on our sesquicentennial farm and is located in a quiet rural community. There's plenty of good restaurants nearby, excellent antiquing, fishing, golfing, biking, walking, community theatre, shopping and quaint country churches to attend. We are 10 miles to Hillsdale College, 20 miles to Michigan Speedway, 30 miles to Jackson Space Center, 35 miles to Battle Creek Cereal City Museum and Water Slide, and 60 miles to Michigan State University's Butterfly House and 4-H Children's Garden. We are the best of two worlds: quiet country and city attractions. Driving from Detroit Metro Airport it is two hours and the drive through the Irish Hills is beautiful. We live in a friendly part of Michigan's Water Wonderland.
Horse&Carriage was once a one-room schoolhouse and was built in 1898. We offer our guests a warm fireside hospitality, with a hearty farm breakfast served inside or on our old-fashioned screened porch. Spring, summer and fall there are flowers in abundance. All around our house are the beautiful grazing fields of Brownson Farms. Once we were a dairy farm. Now it's a new generation and our family and neighboring farmers work the fields together. Our home and life style is simple and friendly. We welcome everyone to come to Horse&Carriage b&b
and enjoy our country home.

Having desert after breakfast is the farm way. We've continued the tradition at our guest's breakfast table, so don't be surprised if there's apple pie and cheese on your table in the morning!
