The Space

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

We have created simply the best hotel room in Grand Rapids that comfortably sleeps 6 with two Master Suites, each with their own full bathrooms and a den with a Queen pull out sofa – just steps from a third full bathroom!

The ground floor features a full kitchen with seating for 6, a stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator/freezer and a Keurig with the coffee and tea on the house.

There is even a washer/dryer hidden away behind a cabinet door!

The Lehigh Suite is fully furnished with kitchen utensils, appliances, washer/dryer and much 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 four 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 Lehigh Suite is heated by radiant heat in the floor with additional baseboards in the upstairs Master Bedrooms. There is an AC unit on the main floor and an AC unit in each bedroom.

Full Kitchen with Appliances

The ground floor features a full kitchen with seating for 6, a stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator/freezer and even a Keurig with the coffee and tea on the house! There is even a washer/dryer hidden away behind a cabinet door!

Living Room + Den

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


The den is located just past the living room 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 55″ flat screen TV. At night, it pulls out to make a Queen bed!


Right next to the den is a full bathroom with shower. The bathroom door on this level opens into the living room.

Loft with Modern Master Bedrooms

Open to the main floor below, the loft holds two full Master Bedrooms. Each is complete with their own full bathroom with a shower.


There is also plenty of storage for your clothes in both Master Bedrooms.


Each of these modern Master Bedrooms feature a built in king bed with normal outlets and USB power along with a directional reading light – on both sides of the bed!


Each Master Bedroom has a 50″ flat screen TV mounted on the wall in front of the bed.


The inside walls, facing the open area to the lower level, are all glass. This lets in lots of light and is just plain cool! There are darkening curtains to cover these windows when sleeping.

Three (3) Full Bathrooms

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 100+ 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 Lehigh 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 Lehigh Suite.

Off-street parking for one car is right outside your door – in a parking area that is fully heated – as are the driveway, all steps, the courtyard and the sidewalks! We even heated the city sidewalk (no easy task getting that approved)! So, there is never any snow or ice to worry about!

Use your key code to enter the “lobby” where you will see the door leading to The Lehigh 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 Lehigh 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.

The Lehigh Suite is in the old brick building behind the original 135+ year old house. The Drumlin Suite is also in this building. You will share a “lobby” entrance with guests staying in The Drumlin Suite. The two suites are side by side – they share a wall. While the wall has dead air space and insulation for sound control – you MAY here noise from other guests at times.

This building does not touch the original house – so you won’t hear noise from these units. Guests using these units WILL park in their designated space, be coming and going in the driveway, etc.

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 only used as an office for the owners. 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.
