Valentine's Day in Michigan

Munro House Bed and Breakfast in Jonesville Michigan is celebrating Valentine's Day the entire month of February.  We have developed several packages for 1 and 2 nights, with romance in mind.  The packages can include chocolates, roses, dinners, massages, and movies. 

Valentine's Day, 2010, falls on a Sunday.  Most romantics like to get away on the actual holiday, February 14.  Unfortunately, most people have to work on Monday, February 15, so an overnight stay on Valentine's Day is not an option for everyone.  However, some people will have Monday off of work if their company celebrates President's Day which falls on Monday, February 15, this year. They will be able to take in an overnight stay on Sunday night and not have to worry about going to work on Monday.

With our busy schedules, everyone's getaway plan is different and the opportunity to get away does not necessarily correspond with specific weekends or holidays. So if you are looking for a romance package at a bed and breakfast in Michigan, the Munro House B&B offers a selection of romantic ideas for your getaway on any day of the week--especially during the month of February.

Winter Getaway in Michigan

Christmas is over, New Years has been celebrated, and the next holiday on the calendar is Valentine's Day. But is a winter holiday necessary to take a weekend getaway in Michigan?  Some people call it cabin fever when there is a desire to get out of town for a few days in January and February. The cure for this ailment could be a weekend getaway to an interesting bed and breakfast in a small South Central Michigan town.  I'm talking about my town, Jonesville.


Jonesville is located at highways 12 & 99 about 20 miles North of the Ohio, Indiana, Michigan border. Toledo, Battle Creek, and Kalamazoo are all about an hour away. Detroit and Fort Wayne are about an hour and a half from here.  Chicago, Cleveland, and Indianapolis are a 3 hour drive. Near or far, we try to provide a great experience with a reasonable drive time.

Here, at the Munro House, we offer onsite spa services 7 days a week. We have professionals who can provide a manicure, pedicure, facial, massage, body wrap, and waxing services. A day at the spa or just an hour of massage can provide a great cold weather pick-me-up or alternative to just sitting home.

A wide variety of eateries are available from fast food to fine dining to what US Today once claimed was the best hamburger in the world at Ray's in Reading.

The pace is slower around here. Traffic jams are virtually non-existant, the food is good, and there is a lot of antique shopping within 10 minutes. Allen is the "Antique Capital of Michigan" and is just 5 miles away on highway 12. Several antique malls boast a total of over 1,000 dealers who display their treasures in a climate-controlled atmosphere. Dishes, tools, signs, toys, books, and lots of memories can be found here. The inventory is constantly changing so  there will always be a new selection of goods to peruse and reminisce about with you family, friends, or mate.  I am partial to the big red barn know as the Allen Antique Barn, but there is a big selection at Allen Antique Mall, Capital Antiques, and Hog Creek Antique Mall.

For those who just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy their mate, we've got rooms with big double Jacuzzi tubs, rooms with fireplaces, and musical instruments that include a baby grand piano, accoustic guitar, mandolin, and ukele that our guests are welcome to use.  Our movie collection has hundreds of titles and Blockbuster is just a couple minutes away for our movie lovers.

Of course, I'm going to bake cookies and have soft drinks available all of the time.  We also make a big breakfast 7 days a week.  We are famous for Lori's Secret Recipe Belgian Waffles, but we offer other things for breakfast, too.  A big bowl of fresh cut fruit along with coffee and juice is offered every morning.

If a getaway to Southern Michigan is what you are looking for, we are open 7 days a week through all seasons and will be happy to accommodate your needs.  Find out for yourself why "life is good in Jonesville."

Family Christmas Dinner at a Michigan B&B

Several families have made our house their home for the holidays. They may not have as much room, or may require a more central location, or they might prefer to enjoy the day as opposed to doing all the cooking and cleaning themselves. Hosting the party and doing all the setup and cleanup is what we are all about at the Munro House Bed & Breakfast in Jonesville, Michigan. We had 3 Christmas trees this year and have our parlor and dining room fully decorated for the season.  Christmas dinners are very popular, but family get-togethers are welcome year round for birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations.








The McCuens have been with us for 6 Christmases. We have watched their kids grow up and have enjoyed the new additions to the family. They are as much a part of the Munro House Christmas as we are part of the McCuen Christmas.

Selecting to spend the holiday at a Michigan bed and breakfast was a choice they made years ago.  We do everything we can to make sure they are comfortable and well fed.
