My wife and I just returned home from a long enjoyable weekend at The Sylvan Inn and I have an experience to share which epitomizes the character of the innkeepers at this outstanding home away from home. We had gone for a drive to see the fall color and stopped by the side of the road to go for a short hike. Upon returning to the car, I discovered that I had left the keys to the car sitting on the driver's seat and had locked the car doors to take our hike. I remembered that I had an extra car key in my backpack back at the Inn, but knew Rose and Ralph, the innkeepers, were busily accomplishing a full day of chores and checkins of new guests. I hesitatingly called the Inn and explained my situation to Rose on the phone and within minutes Ralph was in the car with my backpack driving to our rescue. We were stranded a number of miles from the Inn and it was an adventure for him to find us out on the back roads in Leelanau County, but he made it in record time and we were on our way with only minimal delay from would have been a real blow to our weekend trip if we would have had to wait for a locksmith. Ralph arrived with a big smile on his face and words of humility when we praised him for his selfless and gracious efforts. He and Rose had done us a tremendous service above and beyond the call of duty and we were exceedingly grateful for their efforts and somewhat humiliated because of my careless act. This example is just one of many which exemplifies the kind of people that Rose and Ralph are and also shows to what lengths they will go to make each guests stay as enjoyable as possible. We have stayed at Sylvan Inn many times in the past and hope to continue to do so into the future, as it is a truly delightful place to stay and the innkeepers are second to none.
