Things To Do:

The Housley House Bed & Breakfast is a majestic Victorian manor that sits on the lofty banks of the mighty Maumee River overlooking the quaint, historical town of Grand Rapids, Ohio.

When you feel like exploring you can go to the beautiful Butterfly House where over 500 butterflies come every year for you to experience, you can go bird watching because your chances of seeing one of our beautiful majestic eagles is very good! We also have our famous Wallet run, so fishing is a big part of our small town and then there is shopping, canoeing, eating at the awesome restaurants, hiking or biking the many trail and toll path.

Step back in time as you board The Volunteer, that is an authentic 1800's mule-drawn canal boat, for a trip along the restored canal of the Miami and Erie canal.

This fun filled historical ride takes you back 150 years to days gone by and you will view the historic Isaac Ludwig Mill and Interpretive Center, a restored and working canal-era sawmill and Grist mill. Open Wednesday through Sunday.

So bring your hiking boots, or life vest for that canoe ride, fishing pole, camera for the many different wild life photo's that you will want to capture and wallet for the awesome shops that Grand Rapids has, just a few steps away.

The only thing you won't be using while you are staying with us is your car! 

Its all right here!

What some of our guests are saying:

  • As soon as my husband and I walked into the Housley House we felt envious. We stayed in the Dillin room and slept like we better than we had in a long time. The wine, chocolate cheesecake before bed, crepes in the morning with the most outstanding apple crisp that we had ever tasted, all top the most perfect weekender that we've taken. Don's humor and Teresa Marie's sense of caring and gentleness will bring us back many more times. This was the perfect close to home getaway, perfect price and perfect hosts! We didn't want to leave,

  • I can't imagine staying at a chain motel when this charming getaway is available. It felt like staying a night with relatives. The room was beautiful and comfortable, and the food was delicious. The hosts make you feel like you own the place.

  • My plan was to stay in a B&B for one night for a quick break, and instead I found a Victorian mansion in a dream-like village with hosts that made me feel relaxed and welcomed. Don helped me carry my bags from the car and gave me the grand tour and history of the place. All of the rooms are incredibly beautiful, but the Dillin Room where I stayed is the perfect "honeymoon suite" - spacious, comfortable, charming, romantic. I spent the afternoon on the front porch, playing music and talking with Teresa who is a warm, caring person. In the evening I ate at one of the town restaurants, which was very good food at reasonable prices. The next morning I enjoyed a good breakfast, with coffee on the porch swing in a gentle rain. Later, I took a walk by the river and explored the shops all morning. I found every one of them to be full of unique items and friendly shop owners. Before leaving, I had lunch at another restaurant and enjoyed the food there as well. I could not have asked for a more perfect getaway.

From the first moment we stepped into this beautiful home, our hearts were touched.  Our desire is to let your hearts be touched in the very same way, as you stay with us at The Housley House Bed and Breakfast!
