At Adrounie House Bed and Breakfast, today’s comforts meet the grandeur of 1894 craftsmanship. The front entry and dining room of this Sears and Roebuck house have wonderful inlaid floors of oak and birdseye maple. Four sets of huge pocket doors grace the common areas on the main floor, which include a parlor and sitting room with fireplace. Lots of antiques and collectibles are found throughout the house.
Guests enjoy porch-sitting on our comfortable wrap-around porch with early-morning coffee or a cup of tea and a good book.
You’ll ascend to your room on a lovely oak staircase with beautiful hand-carved woodwork on the stair paneling and beneath the windows. Our six guest rooms, tastefully and comfortably decorated with their own personalities, all include private baths, two of which have whirlpool tubs. The George Lowry has a “double whirlpool” and the Serelda Victoria contains a “single whirlpool.”
Rooms amenities include A/C, ceiling fans, cable TV, WiFi, freshly ironed sheets, cotton swabs and rounds, snacks. A hair dryer available.
Adrounie House (pronounced ah-DRO-nee) is open all year. Unlike many B&Bs, we require no minimum stays.

Some breakfast specialties are Orange Pecan Baked French Toast with a peachy-orange sauce, Three-Cheese Crustless Quiche, Puffed Pancake with Sauteed Apples, Blueberry/Peach Stuffed French Toast, or Multi-Grain Buttermilk Pancakes, all served with fresh fruit and yogurt as a breakfast starter.
Adrounie House, which is listed as a Michigan Historical Site, is sometimes referred to as “The House of Two Doctors.” Dr. George W. Lowry built it over a two-year period starting in 1892. After his death, it was occupied by Dr. Haroutoune A. Adrounie and his wife, Dirouhie. Adrounie was an Armenian Christian who immigrated from Turkey in 1909.
Innkeepers Don and April Tubbs, third owners, lovingly restored the home and opened as a bed and breakfast in July 1998.
Hastings has been listed twice in "100 Best Small Towns in America To Live In." Adrounie House is within walking distance to shops and restaurants and a four-screen movie theater.
