The Kerr House is a Health Retreat housed in a Victorian manor in the quaint, historic canal village of Grand Rapids, Ohio. The splendor of the atmosphere complements the outstanding program where only 6 to 8 guests enjoy 5 glorious days of being pampered by a professional staff of 25.
A delicious breakfast is served in bed each morning on a wicker tray with fresh flowers and a schedule for the day. A mind-body exercise class is first and last on the agenda each day, working with learning deep breathing and stretching exercises (Hatha Yoga), aerobic exercises on rebounders (no stress on the weight bearing joints), stress management techniques, and the art of relaxation. The exercise classes are taught by Laurie Hostetler and are often a favorite part of the day, capturing the interest of people who dislike exercise as well as those who are fanatics. By the end of the week, guests have a realistic, effective exercise regime to continue after they leave.
During the week you will benefit from massages, facials, reflexology, shiatsu, herbal wrap, body wrap, mud bath, hot oil hair treatment, hot paraffin hand and foot waxing, manicure, pedicure, whirlpools and saunas. Afternoon activities vary with the seasons and interest of the guests, who also enjoy walks along the Maumee River. Dinner is served in a lovely oak dining room by candlelight, with antique linens, dishes, stemware and silver, often to the soothing strains of a harpist. (As romantic as it is, there is no dress code.) The presentation of the meals served at The Kerr House is outstanding, and only enhances the delicious food. An important factor is that the food is all natural - no processed food, additives, preservatives or dyes. It is naturally low in calories, fat and cholesterol.
The small number of guests and the caring, professional staff makes The Kerr House quite unique. Learning to attain and maintain good health is vital to those who wish to continue their active lives and enjoy each day, regardless of age, size, profession or place of residence. Weekend programs are also available, running from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. A great getaway, the weekend is a shorter version of the weekly program.
The Kerr House is the perfect way to escape everyday pressures, rejuvenate, develop good health habits, and have a good time. .
