From the moment you arrive, you will be amazed by The Drumlin Suite at The Inn on Jefferson!

The Space

The Inn on Jefferson is proud to offer The Drumlin Suite – a completely new, modern (and amazing) loft-style apartment in a historic building in the Grand Rapids Heritage Hill neighborhood!

The Living Room features a soaring ceiling with lots of light. The original ceiling is exposed while also having been completely treated and sealed.

Head up the stairs to see the beautiful Loft! Open to the main floor below, the Loft holds the Master Bedroom featuring a built-in King bed with a Tuft & Needle mattress, 50″ flat-screen TV and its own full bathroom with shower.

A full kitchen with appliances and utensils complete this incredible unit which is exclusively rented on Airbnb!

The Drumlin Suite is fully furnished with kitchen utensils, appliances, washer/dryer, clean linens, bathroom essentials and more!


High-Speed Internet + YouTube TV

Take a seat on the beautiful leather sofa and enjoy some time watching the 65″ flat screen TV. YouTube TV is included and features all the local affiliates of ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS plus most of the popular cable channels. Each of the three TVs in The Drumlin Suite offer these stations plus apps for Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney+, HBO, Showtime and Starz (apps require you to login in and use your personal account).


While we cannot control (or guarantee) the internet speed on any given day or time, we regularly measure download speeds between 200-300mbps – or higher depending on your device.

Heat / Air Conditioning

The Drumlin Suite is heated by radiant heat in the floor with additional baseboards in the Master Bedroom and the Den. There is an AC unit on the main floor and an AC unit in the Master Bedroom and the Den.

Upstairs Loft / Den

The Den is located in the loft and features an electronically adjustable desk so you can work while standing! An ergonomic chair is included if you want to sit while working.


A comfy sofa completes the den should you need a place to read, relax or watch the 42″ flat screen TV. At night, it pulls out to make a Queen bed!


The inside Den wall, facing the open area to the lower level, is all glass. This lets in lots of light and is just plain cool!

Master Bedroom

Open to the main floor below, the Loft holds the Master Bedroom with its own full bathroom with a shower.

The modern Master Bedroom features a built in King bed with a Tuft & Needle mattress. Plus, normal outlets and USB power along with a directional reading light – on both sides of the bed!

There is also a 50″ flat screen TV mounted on the wall in front of the bed.

Full Kitchen with Appliances

We’ve stocked the kitchen with virtually any tool you’ll need to cook a meal or snack. The appliances include a refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, dishwasher (just leave the dirty dishes in there – we’ll run it for you).


Our Keurig is ready to go if you want coffee or tea – all included at no charge!

Two (2) Full Bathrooms

Right off the Kitchen is a full bathroom with shower.


There is another full bathroom with shower in the Master Bedroom upstairs.


Like the entire Drumlin Suite, the bathrooms are brand new, modern and sparkling clean! They are also fully stocked for your visit with a hair dryer, soap, conditioner and shampoo.

The Inn on Jefferson is a 135+ year old home in Heritage Hill that’s been remodeled and is located just steps from all the action downtown Grand Rapids!

We are the closest Heritage Hill home to the heart of downtown – you can easily walk to Van Andel Arena, the Downtown Market, DeVos Place, GRCC, Spectrum Health, Saint Mary’s Hospital, The B.O.B, Founders Brewing, The Intersection, 20 Monroe Live, The Children’s Museum, The UICA, The GRAM – and more restaurants and bars than we can list!

Ready for some great food? Located in a hot and diverse neighborhood, just outside your door you’ll find restaurants specializing in Thai, Chinese, Indian, Lebanese, Pizza, Hot Dogs and more.

The Drumlin Suite is entirely yours exclusively during your stay! You will share only the “lobby” area, where you enter from the parking area to find your private door into The Drumlin Suite.

There is NO PARKING on the property for guests staying in The Drumlin Suite.

There IS off-street parking in a parking lot just steps behind The Drumlin Suite that we pay for.  It’s is clearly marked.  It is a two minute walk to this space.  Directions to this parking area will be supplied when you book.

You can use the driveway to unload if needed but must not park in the driveway or the parking area.  These are reserved for guests of The Lehigh Suite, The Barlow Suite and  The Maple Suite.

Use your key code to enter the “lobby” where you will see the door leading to The Drumlin Suite! Another keyless entry gives you access to the best hotel room you may ever see!

Please note that we have always cleaned to very exacting standards. Now we are going further with enhanced protocols using CDC recommendations.

In addition we are including a 24 hour buffer between stays. This means that you will never be booked less than 24 hours after the previous guest departs.

MINIMUM STAY – due to the 24 hour buffer between guests, we now must require a 2 night minimum stay. This is required because the 24 hour buffer costs us the availability of one night every time someone books with us.

The Drumlin Suite at The Inn on Jefferson was remodeled to be offered exclusively on Airbnb. We have added every feature and amenity that we desire in rental homes during our travels.

We gutted the entire building down to bare dirt and the four outer brick walls. Due to National Historic rules in the Heritage Hill Neighborhood, we left the original outer brick. Everything else is new and modern!

There are two units in the original house: The Barlow Suite on the first floor and The Maple Suite on the second floor. The Maple Suite is never rented – it is used by the owners as an office when needed. Most likely we will never be there when you stay with us – but it is possible in which case you will hear the garage door open and close at times.

We are very experienced Super Hosts! Our original unit (The Barlow Suite) in the 135+ year old house is the best reviewed house on Airbnb in Grand Rapids.

The official Airbnb guest who books is 100% responsible for anyone in the house or on the property while they are staying at The Inn on Jefferson. You must make sure your family, friends and guests understand and abide by the House Rules!

Especially important are these two rules:

There is ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING allowed in the house or on the property. This means no smoking of any kind including vaping, e-cigarettes and anything else whether legal or not. In addition, no burning of incense or anything else that will alter the smell of the house! You are free to make cookies – they smell great! If you cannot abide by this rule – please DO NOT book!

Quiet time is required from 11PM to 8AM! If you can’t abide by this rule, please DO NOT book!

Guests who break these rules will be asked to leave, additional nights will be canceled and they will be reported to Airbnb.

While we don’t have a front desk and only have three units – The Inn on Jefferson is a licensed hotel and as such we are NOT subject to the Short-Term rental ordinance. We are fully authorized to host guests for one night or many nights. Our Hotel License Number is: HM-17-0029

Please be aware that Grand Rapids has a strict “short-term” rental ordinance. Any home in the City of Grand Rapids that is offered on AirBnB is not legal unless they post their license number.

Short-Term Licenses are not given out to any homeowner offering the entire place for rent. Only primary residences, with the owner at home, are allowed to rent out a single room.

The ordinance requires a Home Occupation Class B License. Here are the first two requirements:

“An owner-occupied dwelling (no renters) in which a single room, couch, or other sleeping area is rented to no more than two adult guests overnight”.

“The dwelling must be the principal residence of the owner-operator and the owner-operator shall be in residence when renting”.

Be aware that booking a home that doesn’t have a license could be at risk for cancellation should the City of Grand Rapids force them to stop renting. The Inn on Jefferson is fully licensed and legal!

To obtain our hotel license, the Inn on Jefferson has been thoroughly inspected and approved by all the required departments in city. There is no increased cost to you for the comfort of staying in a licensed hotel! Airbnb collects the Michigan Use Tax and the Kent County Hotel Tax from all guests for any property in Grand Rapids – whether it’s a licensed hotel or not.
