A Merry Little Christmas Escape

This is the getaway for you if you seek a relaxing retreat from holiday hoopla. Ours is a happy home on Lake Huron about an hour northeast of Detroit and east of Flint. We celebrate Christmas in a quiet way, with minimal holiday decor, preferring to enjoy other people’s decorating when we go out.

We have two queen-bed, en-suite guest rooms, each with outstanding Lake Huron views.

First, book the Aft Cabin or Toy Box room for a three-night stay either Dec. 23, 24 and 25 or Dec. 24, 25 and 26. Arrive as early as 1 p.m. Full breakfast included each day. Plus fires in the living-room fireplace. Plus walks on the beach. Plus occasional sweet treats.

The optional Merry Little Christmas Escape package ($99 for two; $45 for one) includes:

  • Christmas Day dinner with the innkeepers. Three courses plus dessert. Wine. Served at a mutually convenient time between 4 and 7 p.m. Menu to be determined after a discussion of preferences.
  • On another night, your choice of cocktail-hour hors d’ouevres or make-your-own ice cream sundaes.
  • Two tickets to the movie of your choice at Port Huron’s Sperry Moviehouse, where none of the 12 theaters has more than 44 seats. Your seats will be ordered in advance when the movie lineup is announced.

Call the innkeeper to add and customize your package.
