Ionia is my home. It's where my parents were raised, it's where I was raised, it's where my children were raised and it's where my grandchildren are being raised. 

We really can't tell you why Ionia is such a special place, we can only show you. So, don't just spend an evening with us at the movies..spend a couple nights with us. We'd love to have you and I know you and yours will head back to your home with memories that will last forever.

God Bless.
