The Nisbett-Fairman Residences offers a unique lifestyle opportunity in Big Rapids for people 55 and better. 

The Nisbett-Fairman Residences are located in two beautiful historic buildings, which were remodeled with an emphasis on convenience, safety and security. Built in the 1880's, the renovation highlights the historical integrity of the buildings.

Located on the corner of Maple and South Michigan Street in downtown Big Rapids, the Nisbett-Fairman Residences are within easy walking distance to many local banks, city hall, the post office, and the secretary of state's office. There are many restaurants and a lot of shopping opportunities to take care of most needs and choose from several hair salons and a barbershop located within one to two blocks. The Muskegon River is located about three blocks east of the Nisbett-Fairman Residences, and features a fully accessible River Walkway which promotes recreation, fishing and nature awareness for all.

Public transportation is also available including special needs accessibility.

The Nisbett-Fairman Residences offer a full complement of amenities, including a modern efficient kitchen, central air conditioning, and personal washer/dryer. We offer a twenty-four hour emergency maintenance call system in each unit. Barrier free units are also available.

Plan your next gathering in our Community Space. Enjoy movies at our very own Theater Room and work at your hobbies or start a new one in the Greenhouse and Craft room. Play pool with your friends in the Billiard Room or just relax in front of the fireplace. Bring visiting grandchildren down to the Child's Playroom or tap into the Internet at our Computer Center.
