Grand Rapids B&Bs Perfect for a Cozy Staycation

When you’ve been stuck inside your own four walls too long and winter wanderlust starts to set in, the fix is a whole lot closer than you think: at these Grand Rapids bed & breakfasts in your own backyard.

Think: a bed of fresh, fluffy linens (that you won’t have to make), a warm, home-cooked breakfast (same), and so many amenities, you might never leave your room.

Pull on some wooly socks (and a fuzzy robe) to cuddle up by the crackling fire — on a relaxing, close-to-home staycation at one of these Grand Rapids B&Bs:

Prairieside Suites Luxury Bed & BreakfastIn-room jetted soaking tubs for two and electric fireplaces in every room? Say no more; we’re packing. Add breakfast brought to your bedroom door, house-made hot cocoa, towel warmers and heated tile floors, plus a private couples’ massage room… and you can start to imagine why this spot was named one of the “16 Top Romantic Getaways in Michigan”. 

The Brauhaus Inn: A Heritage Hill beauty (with views of neighboring historic homes and Pleasant Park), this inn features a light & airy, modern Scandinavian meets boho-chic vibe. Look forward to the German family-style charcuterie spread for breakfast — including fresh-baked loaves from nearby Nantucket Baking Co. — and enjoy each thoughtful detail from your hosts, Oliver & Kelly.

The Parsonage InnAlso in historic Heritage Hill (just across the street from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Meyer May House), you’ll find this stately Queen Anne-style home — with five inviting guest rooms, two that have private en suites. Walk a few blocks to The Winchester or Donkey Taqueria for dinner — or grab a bottle of wine and all the fixings for a gourmet, in-room picnic from Art of the Table, just up the street.

The Leonard at Logan HouseStay in yet another Heritage Hill gem — in your choice of eight unique guest rooms — at this English-style, turn-of-the-century mansion. Watch for gorgeous, antique furniture pieces peppered throughout the home, gourmet hot breakfast, and plenty of thoughtful extras.

The Lafayette HouseYou won’t need to leave the grounds of this posh, classically-styled B&B (though you might want to, with some of Downtown Grand Rapids’ best breweries and restaurants just a few-minute Uber away). Stay in to sip wine by a roaring fire, then retreat to a spacious room with a private bath (some even have heated floors or a jetted tub). The best part? Banana walnut waffles you might wake up to in the a.m.

Peaches Bed & Breakfast: Greeted by cathedral glass skylights and a traditional living room with a wood-burning fireplace, the special details of this Georgian manor only unfold from there. Nestle in by any of five fireplaces throughout the home (or retreat to the library with a good read). In the morning, hit the snooze to stay in bed awhile, then wake up to a full hot breakfast (with a signature peach basket), before your morning cup of coffee in the sunroom.
