What Our Guests Are Saying!

Our stay at the Grand Kerr House was a home away from home experience.  Bob and Cathy could not have done more for us.  Since we have renovated a dozen or so homes, we were very interested in their efforts and extremely pleased with their accomplishments in restoring the home to its former grandeur.  Lovely folks; will stay with them again and again when the opportunity presents itself.      Jim & Paula, Evanston, IL      5 Stars - Google

The inside is gorgeous.  The owners are taking a real pride in restoring and updating.  Bob is working hard to update the places that need updating yet keeping all the beautiful woodwork and 1880 looks.  Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty.  The best part was no TV in the room.  We were able to relax, read, and just enjoy our stay without electronic babysitting.  Of course, if you do need a fix, the internet is top notch.  We will be back.     Bob & Susan, Bay City, MI     5 Stars - Trip Advisor

I'll start with I know I'm hyper-critical, yet I have nothing but wonderful things to say about The Grand Kerr House.  I highly recommend it as an experience for yourself or a gift for another.  I took my visiting mother and sister, and all three of us were over the moon with our treatments.  I am 100% certain we will be regulars.  And even though I live within 30 miles, we've already talked of spending the night there as well because it is just wonderful.  Absolutely lovely, you should experience it yourself as my words just don't do it justice.       Denise, Toledo, OH     5 Stars - Facebook

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Grand Kerr House.  Upon arrival we received a short tour pointing out many of the architectural points of interest.  Our room was luxurious and the bed was very comfortable.  We had not given much thought to breakfast but it turned out to be the the high point of our stay!  Being in the food service industry we noticed the lavish attention to detail obviously prepared by someone who loves to cook.  Bob and Cathy were amazing hosts and we would highly recommend staying at The Grand Kerr House.  Truly one of the best bed and breakfasts we have ever been to.    John & Debra, Saint Francis, WI     5 Stars - Air BnB
