Ann Arbor's Stone Chalet Inn is not only a world-class bed and breakfast with a relaxing atmosphere but also a small event center. The property is a complex of buildings located on three city lots, which also includes the family residence.
The site consists of several structures. The Stone Chalet, constructed in 1917 of solid granite blocks, is the Swiss Chalet style house which was built for the original owner and his family. The Parsonage was built in the late 1940s by the Unitarian Church, which purchased the property from the initial owner. It now contains a majority of the guest rooms. The Event Hall once served as the church itself and is used now for events such as weddings, conferences, dinners, parties, and more. Also built and designed by a Unitarian Church member, it is known for its mid-century modern style,
The Carriage House was formerly occupied by German caretakers who helped out the first owners and still has its original slate roof. Today it is also used for garden events and meetings. Currently, the Stone Chalet Inn is TV-free, but there is high-speed WiFi available in all rooms to allow entertainment to be streamed on smart devices. All of the rooms have air conditioning and window screens to enjoy summer breezes. There are relaxing outdoor spaces as well. Enjoy a small sitting area on the rear side porch, tables under the rose-covered gazebo and around the pond, plus chairs located on the front porch and yard. Every day a different breakfast menu is offered and there's no limit on how much one can order. If you're still hungry, do not hesitate to ask for seconds!
