Book Your Stay



Here at Shining Light Inn we prefer to talk directly to our guests when making a reservation… we like the personal touch of getting to know you. Email is also a great way to check availability. Telephone: 231-425-3521 Email:

To receive our best available rate at any time of year, we recommend booking directly with us over the phone or via email.  We may require a 2-night minimum stay during the “peak season” of June-September, or during local special events, but we will occasionally make exceptions. Call us, and we’ll do our best to help and accommodate your travel schedules.

Four room rentals, extended stay as well as corporate or business travel rates and discounts are available.  Please call us at 231-425-3521 to discuss arrangements and reserve your stay.

Shining Light Inn B&B home, porches, decks, and gardens are smoke-free.  Guests may use the wood fire pit area as the designated smoking area.  A $250 cleaning fee will be assessed should a guest choose to smoke indoors. 


We adore children and welcome children age 11 years and older.  Well behaved children under the age of 11 are welcome in the event of a family booking all four rooms.  Please contact us for additional information.


We are animal lovers… we have our own resident kitty cat. However, to ensure the comfort of all our guests, we are unable to accommodate guests' pets.  We can suggest a great local boarding facility if you would like.
