Guests of The Inn at 97 Winder will be treated to gourmet specialty food items directed by Chef James Gundy of Detroit's Red Dunn Kitchen which will soon be housed in Corktown's Trumbull and Porter Hotel.

Designed by famous architect John V. Smith, the Inn was completed in 1876 as a private home for philanthropist John Harvey and his family. A recent renovation has restored the building to its original glory with the same careful attention to detail for which its architect was admired. Featuring eight marble fireplaces and a three-story staircase, this Second Empire Detroit mansion often reigned throughout history as the most expensive private home in Detroit. Still remaining today are the furnishing and works of art from an ambitious multi-decade restoration project which began in 1980. The Inn at 97 Winder's latest chapter has only just begun and now stands apart as the ultimate boutique hospitality venue in Detroit.
