Hart House Bed & Breakfast

We’re so happy that you are here, and hope you will find what you are looking for. We are your Innkeepers Al and Patrice Martin. Our mission is to surround our guests with luxury and comfort; a calm oasis in which to relax and restore. We invite you to come and stay with us in our beautiful home, The Hart House Bed and Breakfast.

The Inn was built in 1904, and designed by E.A. Rush and Company of Grand Rapids, Michigan. We are fortunate to have an original set of blueprints, and a .pdf of the Rush’s Dwellings catalog that contains an original description of the house. This stately, three-story house was originally covered in cedar shake shingles, and its brick walls and field-stone foundation still retain their richness.

The house has a tragic-romantic backstory, and stands as a testament to the love of a husband for his wife. Estelle Moore Bates, daughter of Hart pioneer Benjamin Moore, lost her father, stepmother and six other family members to the historic Iroquois Theater fire in Chicago on December 30, 1903. In an attempt to comfort his grieving wife, George R. Bates had this lovely home built in 1904.

The landmark house has had many owners since that time, and many Hart residents cherish personal stories of their experiences here.Memoirs of several former owners have been shared with us, and we’re happy to share them with you during your stay. Your innkeepers, Allan and Patrice Martin recognize the iconic status of the house and embarked on its rehab intending to restore it to its original splendor.
