Chelsea House Victorian Inn

 


Recently we attended the wedding of our friend's son in Michigan.  Since the week of our wedding anniversary was so busy, we decided to go a day early and stay at the Chelsea House Victorian Inn in Chelsea Michigan.


We had a beautiful room! There was much to love and enjoy about this wonderful Bed & Breakfast including lovely inn keepers.


Complimentary drinks from a local bar (The Ugly Dog)


Tucked into a quiet neighborhood but just steps away from the downtown shopping and restaurants, you can sit and relax on their lovely front porch.



Cozy sitting room and coffee tea bar with lots of little snacks to tide you over in between meals


I loved this working reproduction record player! I totally thought it was vintage.  The owner said it's even equipped with blue tooth!


Lovely staircase leading up to the guest rooms and beautiful, antique, yet comfortable furniture and decor throughout


There were several very nice gift shops and a wonderful toy store that we visited. In the toy store I couldn't stop carrying this chicken around.  I had planned to go back and get it for our grandson.  I was so in love with it haha!  Hubby surprised me by getting it for me!


Did you know that Chelsea, MI is home to the Jiffy plant? 


We had so much fun at the wedding.  The bride's father had several antique cars so we were able to snap some fun photos!  Chelsea, MI is a beautiful little town - we really enjoyed the mini get-away!

  1. My eagle eyes spotted the bone china teacups in the tea/coffee bar!

    I've always been partial to Victorian decor and even tried to look for a Victorian house, but my wallet said NO!

  2. Sounds (and looks) idyllic! I simply can't imagine being able to stay in such a place. And that chicken is delightful!

  5. Oh my! You were only about 45 minutes from me! I adore Chelsea -- it's the cutest town. Doesn't sound like there was time to tour the Jiffy plant -- it's a fun tour (and you get free muffin mixes, for what it's worth!). I'm not familiar with the B&B though -- I'll have to remember that. That might be a fun surprise getaway for Rick and me sometime. Apart from going to the lake and back, we're trying hard not to gas up and travel too much. That's close enough and a fun place to be!

  6. I am from Chelsea. It is a wonderful town with great schools, lovely shops, a theater owned by Jeff Daniels, and the famous Common Grill restaurant. I'm so happy you had such a nice visit!

  9. What a lovely Inn you stayed at, Lauren. Your grandson probably loved that little chicken. He's so cute. I like that coffee tea bar. Such a charming place. Glad you had a good time at the wedding.
