About Us Millpond Inn, a bed & breakfast is located in Clarkston, Oakland County, Michigan . Established in 1995 we have strived to provide a clean, comfortable and relaxing place to stay. The breakfasts are not just a meal but an event.
While Clarkston is located on the northern edge of the Detroit suburbs, it has maintained the charm of a turn of the century small village. Take a walk around the Millpond (one mile) and view many of the historic homes and the old factory built by Henry Ford (now the Clarkston Mills.) Shop in the stores downtown. Eat lunch or dinner in one of three excellant restaurants within walking distance of the Inn. ( See our page on things to do for more about activities in the area)
