Grand Rapids is not only a great place to visit any day of the week or time of the year, it is also home to many events.  The season is just starting and what better way to start is with a race!  The Grand Rapids Arts Council sponsors “Run to the Rapids 5K Run and Walk” one Saturday each April.  Runners and walkers gather in Grand Rapids to participate in a unique 5 K that takes them over multiple terrains, a bridge, and the tow path along the river.  The run is done in memory of Julie Pontash, a past board member of the arts council who lost her journey of life to ALS.  Proceeds are donated for ALS research.  We had several guests run the 5K this year.

Our niece, Pam and her friend, Connie from the Akron area.


Our niece Pam brought her friend, Connie, from the Akron area to run the race.  We also had another couple who ran as well.  It was a very cold morning, but that didn’t stop the runners and walkers from enjoying our beautiful scenery along the running path.


A good stretch in the cold!


Ready , Set, Go!


The 5K is just the start of the many family events that take place in our little canal town.  I’ll be highlighting and letting you know what events are coming up.  Watch for details about “Rhythm on the River”, “Ladies Night Out’, “Spring Fling”, as well as lots of others.  We are also located close to many other small town festivals.

Even if there isn’t a scheduled event, Grand Rapids always offers plenty for families and couples.  Wineries, many restaurants, bike and hiking trails, museums, historical sites, shopping, music venues, zoos, and more!  Check out our website for current events.

Come see us this year, reserve quickly so you get your favorite room and date!

Grace and Peace,

Kathy and Ron

The wife and I stayed here for our one year anniversary and had a great time. The owners are so nice and caring. It is a quiet and romantic place to stay, with great views and quaint historic rooms with a lot of character. We will definitely be back again!

We visited the Mill House for our second time in the Grand Rapids area. Ron and Kathy even made sure to have the local bald eagle put in an appearance on one of our river walks. Clean spacious room, pleasant company and bacon scones. A slice of heaven in NW Ohio.

One of the best overnight stays we have ever taken. First, you are greeted with warmth and kindness. The Mill House is a true getaway from the rush and stresses of life. The rooms are all very inviting and a place of refuge. The snacks are best around and the breakfast felt like home with relatives. Will recommend this place to everyone and returning very soon!
