"Like being at home"

"We've stayed at the Millpond Inn about five times now. It is clean, comfortable, and Joan's cooking is very nurturing. It's been like a second home, while we visit our family in Clarkston. It has been fun and inspiring to converse with Joan and Buck. The delicious breakfasts are especially memorable. The homemade breads, yogurt, smoothies, and omelettes are wonderful. Joan gave us access to healthy snacks in the kitchen, and bottled water. The bathrooms are beautifully tiled, with clean towels each day."

 Visiting the Detroit Area soon? 
Visiting family or friends or maybe a business trip to Southeastern Michigan? 
Enjoy the small Village ambiance of Clarkston with its quaint shops and many fine restaurants. We have become a culinary destination starting with the Millpond Inn's world renown Breakfasts. You will have a hard time choosing one of the many restaurants for lunch and dinner. Guy Fieri highlighted two of Clarkston's restaurants on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives "  (Interview with Kid Rock and Guy Fieri). In addition to the WoodShop and the Clarkston Union ( if the waits are too long), there are a number of other restaurants that are also worth the trip. See our things to do page for a list.
Located in the North Detroit suburbs between Detroit and Flint, it is a short trip to many of the Detroit Area attractions and businesses and the Flint Area. 
2 block South of Exit 91 I-75

Spring, Summer and Fall are great times to visit Clarkston with its many lakes, parks, events and golf courses (over 60 within 1 hour). 

 Every season is very special at the Millpond Inn with its warmth and feelings reminiscent of days gone by.  Whether you're visiting family, attending a local event, or in the area for business, you will fondly remember your stay at the Millpond Inn. Joan's world famous breakfasts and her special attention to your needs will make you feel like you are part of her family.
