Perfect historic district location; period décor, modern amenities; warm hospitality; generous breakfasts, afternoon treats, evening wine & apple dumplings. We have ground floor rooms for those that don't do steps. Each room has a spectacular view of the river or our beautiful English garden. The rooms were beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and impeccably clean. The restored beauty is the perfect place for you to rest and get away from it all. Enjoy the rocking chairs and a swing that overlook the river, a two person hammock and other seating that is located out amongst the cherry blossom trees in the English garden, a tandem bicycle or just regular ones and much more! Teresamarie has been said to have the gift of hospitality. She has been in the culinary field since she was 14 years old and has many specialties for you to enjoy. You will never go home hungry! If you require a special diet, she will fulfill your needs. Before building the Housley House B&B from ground up, she ran a B&B in California, close to Lake Tahoe and she has brought a little bit of California to Ohio in her cooking. The Innkeepers live in their own attached area so the guests get to enjoy the entire historical house (excluding the kitchen) for the gatherings. So this is the place if you are wanting to gather with family or friends in the parlor, library/tea room or formal dining room. We even do murder mysteries and lantern walks. The Housley House B&B is perfect for that intimate wedding, elopement or renewal because the innkeeper - Teresamarie is a licensed officiate with over 15 years experience in making that day the perfect fit for the two of you! There is so much to do while visiting the Housley House but if you should decide not to "do" a lot of activities, and just want to relax, hide and getaway......this is the place! Read our reviews!

4 years ago we stumbled upon the Housley House BnB when visiting Grand Rapids. Thank goodness the owner of LaRoes told us about Teresa Marie and Don and their lovely place! We have been back every year since and with each visit it just gets better and better.

We will continue to share our special day at this wonderful historic home. There is such a wide variety of activities in Grand Rapids and delicious food to enjoy. The breakfasts at Miss Lily's is exceptional, and the pies for our evening treat were fabulous. Teresa is a perfect hostess, wanting to make your visit perfect. This was our third time and we look forward to celebrating our fourth next year.

My sisters and I stayed this month at the Housley House B&B for a Murder Mystery and had loads of fun. We got to play dress up with all Teresa's formals and the guys got decked out too. Dinner at Miss Lily's restaurant aka Teresa was exceptional with scallops and stuffed mushrooms made just for us. We can't wait to come back and see the pretty cherry blossoms in the garden. Thank you for your special touch left in our rooms. We will tell our friends and see you soon!

The Christmas decorations were still all outside stacked by the entrance. We woke up Teresa from a nap upon arrival and walked into a house cluttered with stacks of personal papers with books and magazines throughout the papers. There were only two water bottles in the guest refrigerator upstairs and both were opened and used. The water pressure was terrible and overall very unwelcoming. Teresa left while we were getting freshened up, so when we came downstairs we had to call her for instructions. When we woke up, she was no where to be found again and she sent us to her restaurant for breakfast, which was less than stellar food and service. The whole stay felt like we were intruding on her time and personal space even though we were paying guests. After reading other's reviews, I totally feel jipped out of a good B&B experience. Absolutely terrible experience and will return to the B&B across the stress.

Green Chili California Breakfast
As a child Teresa Marie spent summers at her Aunt and Uncle's Bed and Breakfast in York Beach, Maine, called The Pink house and then later on in her years she ran a Bed and Breakfast herself in the Sierra Mountains of California close to Lake Tahoe and it was here that she fell in love with all the different types of local foods and when starting up her own Bed and Breakfast in Grand Rapids, Ohio she decided to bring a little of California and a little bit of York Beach Maine to Grand Rapids, Ohio. This wonderful Breakfast dish has just a little bite, combined with 3 different cheeses and fluffy eggs starts your day off on the right foot and will keep your tummy happy until its time for lunch downtown at one of our awesome restaurants. Teresa Marie's bread pudding, specialty scone and hot punch are visitors favorites. But the thing that Teresa Marie is really known for and goes beyond for is her gift of hospitality and serving. That is what people return for. To be spoiled and relax.
