Notes from the Innkeeper of the Parish House Inn, and Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area bed and breakfast

Notes from the Innkeeper;

At the Parish House Inn bed and breakfast in Ypsilanti, Michigan, right next to Ann Arbor, it's a cold day in January, so I thought it was a great time to try out my new bread machine. The oatmeal bread with cranberries and walnuts will be delicious toast for breakfast tomorrow...along with the cheese omelets and fried potatoes. The aroma of fresh bread is just heavenly! Wish you were here...
