Covid-19 Updates

Many of us have been impacted by the Covid-19 safe distancing and restricted traveling guidelines.  These have been stressful times for everyone and we are all looking forward to getting back to normal as soon as possible.  


At The Grand Kerr House, our "normal" includes hosting guests from near and far and we have sincerely missed you!  If you are longing for an overnight stay, a weekend getaway, or a longer change of scenery, we promise to do everything possible to make your stay with us a safe experience and we guarantee that there will be no shortage of toilet paper!

The Grand Rapids Shops and Restaurants are now open and several of our restaurants will be offering carry-out service that our guests are welcomed to bring back and enjoy in our dining room.   The nearby walking trails and parks are open for exploration by foot or by bike.  Grand Rapids is perfect for getting out to enjoy shopping, dining and exploring while still safe distancing. 


Reservations will be limited to no more than three guest rooms at a time guaranteeing privacy and space enough for everyone. With two large parlors boasting several clustered seating areas and two separate porches for outdoor enjoyment, the common areas in the home are spacious enough to maintain a "safe distance"of six feet from others at all times.  Each guest room will have a dedicated bathroom area and all linens, including robes and slippers, will be provided for your use while staying with us.


Guests that are not traveling together will be seated in 
separate dining areas and/or at different serving times.  Seating options include the dining room, outside porches or in your guest room.


Bob & Cathy are the only house employees responsible for the home's cleaning and maintenance. Cathy, who works as a buyer for a local manufacturing company, is currently working from home to minimize her possible exposure to Covid-19.  With minimizing traffic in and out of the house, they are doing everything they can to prevent the possible spread of Covid-19.

Please don't be surprised when you are welcomed by your masked hosts and don't be offended if you are not received with a warm hug or a firm handshake - your health is our top priority!


Reservations can be made on-line or by calling us direct.  Either full refunds or gift certificates for future stays will be given for direct bookings regardless of the date cancelled.  

Stay Safe and We Hope To See You Soon!
