Spring in northwest Michigan has sprung earlier than usual. With the warm and moist weather we are certain morels will be popping up soon. We are excited to get our boots muddy along the trek into the woods for these elusive and tasty mushrooms. We hope you will join us…
This year’s annual morel hunt and feast on May 9th is the first in our Harvest Dinner series. These dinners will be offered at the Inn the second Wednesday of every month. The series will always include a five course meal that features the best of what is in season from our farm or other local farms.
Morels in May starts off the season with a dinner that will be a savory sampling of five morel dishes paired with an assortment of our fine wines – including our newly released 2010 Arcturos Pinot Noir.
Morels in May was started seven years ago when we realized how much everyone loved these mushrooms and how many people had no idea about how to find them. At this event you’ll meet at the Inn at 4 p.m. and start out on the search with a seasoned guide. The woods are beautiful in May and usually in bloom with trillium, other wildflowers and wild leeks.
Following the hunt at approximately 5:30 pm you will head back to our Pegasus Lounge at the Inn for morel hors d’oeuvres and wine. Then it’s on to Executive Chef Jonathan Dayton’s special morel dinner and dessert with wine pairing. Savor the spring flavors of northwest Michigan’s terroir at this meal for only $75 per person plus 18% gratuity and tax.
Plus, the innkeepers are offering 20% off your night’s stay at the Inn if you decide against driving home. Please dress for the weather and let us know if you have any dietary restrictions. Call for more information and reservations. 231.944.1251.
