This is a historical home built in 1880. Lots of charm and slanted floors giving it a ton of character! The homes guest room, kitchen, dining room, bathroom, private deck, hammock, and front outdoor seating is open to all guests! The three private bedrooms are not accessible.
My place is right in between the two most popular streets in GR for shopping and dining! (Cherry st. And Wealthy St.)
I’m also in between two bus stops, and downtown GR is a twenty minute easy walk.

The space
The home includes accessibility to the living room, kitchen and bathroom.
Cook a meal, play a record, watch a movie, enjoy the wonky surroundings of a home built in 1880!
History has mentioned that my home belonged to the madam who ran a brothel in the blue Victorian home in the back yard!
Lots of history here!

Where you’ll be

Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States

My neighborhood is the BEST! (I might be biased, but I think you’ll agree!)
I live right in between the two most popular streets for food, drinks, breweries, and local boutique shopping! So much to do just steps outside my door!
Beautiful historic homes and business fronts for blocks and blocks!
Super safe, lots of foot traffic, plenty of parking, and an all around good vibe!
You can walk 15/20 minutes to downtown or grab a $5 Lyft.
East town is a ten minute walk, and the EGRs gaslight village is a 20 minute walk.

During your stay

Please contact me anytime! I try to stay out of the way to give you as much privacy as possible, but I’m just hanging out in the back of the house, and always up to socialize if you’d like!
