The Duck 'N' Roll inn is a three bedroom home situated on a urban duck farm. A combination of contemporary features and old-time cottage charm will keep you comfortable and cozy while you enjoy Detroit's east side. It is close to Grosse Pointe, and most Detroit destinations are quickly reached by freeway.


The Duck 'N' Roll Inn has been a home to journalists, documentary filmmakers, artists, performers, urban planners and explorers, and this year, a temporary home for families reuniting. It's been a joy to teach the kids about the ducks!

The "Duck 'N' Roll Inn" is an eclectic farmhouse on an urban duck farm, officially known as Laid In Detroit. The farm provides pasture raised duck eggs to Rock City Eatery, as well as local residents. Located in the easy-going east side, Laid In Detroit was voted "Best Inner City Duck Farm" by the staff of the Metro Times. Though it's not so much an "inner city" vibe as it is a laid back oasis amongst urban sprawl. It encompasses 4 city lots full of trees and garden,

The house has 3 bedrooms--a nautical room, and kid friendly room, and a spacious bedroom known as "the disco room," which features a large skylight, a woodburning stove, enormous chalk boards, and a sound system with a disco ball so that it doubles as a dance floor!

There is one full bath with an extra wide jacuzzi tub, as well as a half bath on the first floor. The property also features a steel bbq in the form of a dinosaur, an adobe pizza oven on site, as well as panoramic views of the gardens and the ducks frolicking in the pasture.

We have a new addition to the farm! Meg, the livestock guardian dog is keeping us safe from predators and prowlers. Great Pyrenees guardian dogs are known for their friendly, gentle demeanor, as well as their superior livestock guarding abilities. When you meet her, give her a biscuit and a pat. She loves guests! (By the way, the dog is off limits to the house unless invited! No worries if you are allergic or not an animal lover.)

The house is full of character with a large kitchen and dining area. The property also has many ecological features, such as a green roof over the duck coop. Your stay here will not only be relaxing and fun, but educational as well.

Typical guests who have really enjoyed the Duck 'N' Roll Inn are artists, urban gardening fans, photographers, journalists, film makers, animal lovers, students, musicians, world travelers and anyone with an adventurous mindset.

You can also rest easy knowing that the money from your reservation is going directly to a small farm business in a developing neighborhood in Detroit.

Cornerstone Village, once a stable working class neighborhood founded by Belgian immigrants (some refer to it as "the Belgian triangle") has also been affected by the recent mass exodus from Detroit. But a strong coalition of homeowners with deep roots in the community have held things together.

You will encounter some blight and vacant homes in the neighborhood. There are characters, and oftentimes people are out and about, playing music and socializing, but it is a friendly neighborhood, All guests have had a safe experience here.

There are many great restaurants nearby, as well as bars, pubs, and grocery stores. The Cadieux Cafe and Ye Olde Tap Room have been around for a century. Trader Joe's and Kroger grocery are within walking distance.

Laid In Detroit has hosts many events, including an annual Easter party for the kids.

In the past, guests have a had special requests, everything from tours of the city, to barbeques and small weddings. If you give me enough notice, I am happy to clear my calendar so that we can make the best of your stay here in Detroit!

No dogs allowed in the house. Please interact with the ducks, but don't allow kids or pets to chase them, as they can easily be injured in a panic. Always enter the backyard via the house, and keep gates closed. Remember to turn down heat the house when you leave. It helps keep costs down! Thank you!

We had the best time staying at the duck n roll. Meg the dog is the sweetest girl and Suzanne was a great host. We will choose the duck n roll for future stays in Detroit.

What a great family house for a Detroit area vacation. The ducks were a big draw for us. To watch and hear them outside and through the windows was a unique experience. The stairs to bedrooms are not friendly for young children to use by themselves. Overall, it's so comfortable to have a private home base when on vacation. The house is not far from Grosse Point's convient Krogers, Traders Joe, CVS, and other shops. Detroit Zoo in Royal Oaks has great animal exhibits. Henry Ford's Greenfield Village is a gem for all of the historical buildings, and the museum is full of cars! All these and other places are easy to get to on the expressways.

Suzanne has created a very lovely little oasis here. The disco ball in the bedroom was a real highlight for our nine year old. The ducks are super fun... though if you're a light sleeper you might want to use ear plugs! We enjoyed our stay very much.

Very artsy & bohemian vibe. Clean and neat. Good price for whole house and close to a nicer part of town, but it is in a rougher neighborhood. Wasn't exactly what I expected, but at the end of the day, it was just fine, safe and clean.

I am an urban farmer from Detroit, and an avid sailboat racer. I'm also a residential contractor with alternative building skills and training--earthships, cob, and earthbag building. I love meeting new people with an interests in these areas.
