About Robb Baar
View all our beautiful homes at Hi, we are Janessa & Robb Baar. We started renting out our house after we were transferred to Minnesota for work. The feedback we received from our guests about staying in our home compared to traditional vacation rentals was awesome! They loved the amenities, decorations, and how well stocked it was. We have since purchased three other homes. We take the same great care in every detail of all our homes, including bedding, decorations, cookware, and furniture. We enjoy traveling and always stay in vacation rentals when possible so we can get even more ideas on what to do and not to do with our own homes. When we travel we enjoy fishing and recently started Scuba diving in addition to snorkeling. We enjoy being outdoors and taking walks with our pugs Elias and Kandi. We were born and raised in West Michigan and most of our family still lives there. I (Robb) am a financial adviser helping clients find the most efficient way to pay the least amount for college and maximize cash flow during retirement. My wife, Janessa, works as a personal stylist and organizer helping women dress for their body type and maximize space while minimizing clutter. She has a passion for helping animals and is working on starting a non-profit to help the stray and starving dogs in Roatan, Honduras.

Robb Baar purchased this House in 2018
Why Robb Baar chose Dorr
This property was specifically purchased for short term rentals because of its' unique benefits for travelers. It features a beautiful outdoor pool, fire pit, hammock, brick pizza oven, and large front yard. There are two separate living rooms, both featuring a 65" UHD TV and DVD/blu-ray player. We added all the furniture and extras you will need for a great stay. From pool toys to coffee makers to board games, this home will have everything you need for a great vacation. We have Pack-N-Plays, kid's toys, and welcome certain pets. This is not decorated or stocked like a vacation rental, we want you to feel like you are staying at a friend's house. You will truly be able to tell the difference!
What makes this House unique
Quiet and relaxed with beautiful landscaping and views of nature. Two separate high speed WiFi connections, spacious outdoor pool, fire pit, 5 BR/4BA, plentiful outdoor seating, and grill. Whether you want to relax, work, or play; this home has something for you.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Good property, okay location
Overall property and owner were good to work with. Dorr itself is the only real issue, being a very small town with not much to offer. However, it is a relatively short lyft trip to GR(25 mins or so). For the property itself, pool is bigger than it looks in the pictures (largest above ground pool I have seen). There were a couple of maintenance issues on the property, but nothing that affected our stay and owners were in communication with us for any issues. I would rent this place again if I ever wanted to go back and vacation in the area.
The pool was not warm or clean. The house was comfortable and has a beautiful yard.
Family hub for special event
Family came to Dorr house from Indiana, Ohio, and Northern MI for a family event. The house was a good size for our group. Everyone was comfortable and the house was well-appointed.
Thanks Randy & Dhiann! We work hard to make sure everything is well-appointed and well thought out. Our goal is to anticipate the needs/wants of our guests and deliver a top notch product.
Nice for group
This was a great house for a group. Plenty of space, multiple bathrooms, beds were great and well stocked kitchen. Thank you!
Thanks Jamie! We get a lot of compliments on the comfort of the beds. A good night's sleep and a good cup of coffee in the morning, are essentials for me to start my day off right. Glad you were able to utilize the kitchen and make some meals with your group.
Our April 2019 stay
Beautiful place to stay! Nice setup for the upstairs with convenient kitchen and nice living area and eating area. We started with a group of 8 and increased to 12 by the day of the wedding. So much room for all of us to get ready without falling over each other. For 2 days we were able to enjoy the deck during the day without getting too cold. It would be perfect place to stay in the summer to fully enjoy the deck, pool, pizza oven and firepit. All beautiful and the help we received from Ashley made our stay smooth and so easy.
Thanks Katherine! We've had great responses and love that the layout works so well for larger groups. Summer is definitely the best time to visit and enjoy all of the backyard activities, especially the pool.
80th Birthday Party
Perfect venue to host a big family gathering! Ashley is a perfect host and made sure all of our needs were met! We will definitely be back!
Thanks Kimberly! We are excited about this new home and have a lot of guests looking forward to using it for bigger groups. Hopefully you can come back in the summer when the pool is open too!
