Guarneri House

Grand Rapids, Michigan USA

In November of 1978 Steven Reiley and Philip Greenberg opened a full service violin shop known as "Guarneri Violin Shop".  In 1981 Steven and Philip purchased "the house on the hill" and changed the name of the shop to "Guarneri House".  In 2014 Steven and Paula Reiley retired from Guarneri House.  The house was turned over to the next generation and the name changed once again to "Guarneri House LLC" .  The violin shop is now owned by Aaron Reiley and his wife Linda Reiley who are expanding the business in many ways, including moving the shop from it's old location in downtown Grand Rapids to Hudsonville, a suburb of Grand Rapids.  Even though the Reiley's are retired they still work at the shop one day a week, Paula helping all the customers she has know over the past 30 plus years as well as making new friends.  Steven still rehairs and repairs bows on Wednesdays, as well as appraising instruments and bows.  Steven has a unique eye and vast knowledge of the history of fine stringed instruments and bows.

Every one of our customers are special and unique. From our life-long customers, to the person who walks up our driveway to visit for the first time.  This started as a family oriented business and we plan on keeping it that way.

So in the family tradition we strive to make your experience a pleasant one.

Steven Reiley & Aaron Reiley
