About Us


The Harsens Island Bed and Breakfast was originally The Big Beaver Settlement House, one of the first Public Houses in Troy Michigan, built starting in 1831 by George Kilmer, located on what is now  called Big Beaver Road.

In 1849 it was improved to include a barn and additional accomodations, sporting such amenaties as lamp lighting and some heat.

Around 150 years later -- as if transported through space and time to its' current location -- it now stands proudly on Harsen's Island, continuing its' tradition of accomodating the traveler, now with all the luxuries of the day!

The entire home has been dismantled and rebuilt, now sporting 4 bathrooms, central air and kitchen and dining facilites only dreamed of in the past.

Welcome and enjoy your stay!
