REVIEW BY GUEST: We just spent 2 perfect days with Don and Teresa at The Housley House. There were 4 overworked, stressed out Moms that walked into the house, but 4 relaxed, rested and happy women that left Monday morning! We shopped downtown at the unique stores in Grand Rapids, had a delicious lunch on the patio at LaRoe's, walked along the river and then enjoyed wine in the garden of the B&B under a beautiful trellis. We talked and laughed for hours. After we had great pizza a Mama Teresa's (almost next door to the B&B) we came back to sit on the porch with Don & Teresa. The shared history of the B&B and stories of the community. Then Don took us on a lantern walk down the tow path of the canal. Don is full of stories, although we aren't sure if they are all true! LOL When we returned Teresa had freshly made, right out of the oven apple dumplings with ice cream waiting for us on the porch. YUM! Then we went upstairs, to a little sitting area to talk late into the night. The next morning we went downstairs to fresh coffee and our choice of spots for breakfast. We picked the side porch because it offers a beautiful view of the Maumi River. Teresa served us warm blueberry bread pudding, black raspberry scones with a delightful white chocolate glaze. Both were amazing and I was satisfied with those, but then she served an egg casserole and bacon. I have no idea what was in it, but it was great! All this with coffee and orange juice. We lingered over breakfast enjoying the fact we did not have to do the dishes. Then we walked around town some more, stopping in a few shops and enjoying the slow pace of the small town. We did not want to leave and look forward to returning maybe in the Fall for another Girls Get-Away! We recommend The Housley House 100%!
