Grand Kerr House B&B to Close
In a Facebook post on December 26 from owners Bob and Cathy Trame, it was announced that the Grand Kerr House Bed and Breakfast will close.
The bittersweet post comes with some good news and Bob and Cathy head into retirement!
"It is with a mixture of sadness and anticipation for the future that we share the news that it is time for us to close the doors of The Grand Kerr House Bed And Breakfast.
Not to worry, our health is still good, our humor remains intact and our marriage is going strong. We have simply decided to sleep in a little later and take the time to relax with our morning cup of coffee and each other on the front porch.
We truly enjoyed each and every guest that has stayed with us over the years; hearing your stories, getting to know you, often forming new friendships. In fact we hope that many of you will stay in touch and stop by when you are in the neighborhood.
Many thanks to our guests who gave us 5-Star Reviews, voted for us as Most Romantic Getaway, shared their experiences on Facebook, and suggested to others that they come and stay with us. Hosting at The Grand Kerr House has given us memories that bring only joy and we hope that your stay with us has done the same for you.
As we continue our journey here at The Grand Kerr House, this Facebook page will definitely NOT be closing as it happily transitions into “Bob & Cathy’s Grand Retirement”. With the very best wishes to all our many guests, friends and followers, we say thank you for a Grand Experience!
Bob & Cathy"
The Kerr House has been a staple in Grand Rapids. The Victorian home was completed in 1883 by Benjamín and Ann Kerr. The house took three years to build and was designed by architect E.O. Fallis. The Kerrs had seven children and their family occupied the home for nearly 100 years. The home was purchased in 1977, restored, and turned into a wellness spa.
Bob and Cathy purchased the the Kerr House in 2016 and welcomed many guests through the doors as one of Northwest Ohio's most iconic bed and breakfasts.
