Clean and light 50s raised ranch in quiet neighborhood close to downtown. Tucked into the slope rising up to a high point in the city, there is a series of outdoor steps leading up to the front door. All living areas are on one floor.

The Space

Perfect for 1 or 2 or 3, the west end of the main floor has its own hall accessing the two bedrooms each with a firm double bed and a bath for your exclusive use. The main entry and shared rooms are located between the guest suite and our owner suite.

Guest Access

Living/dining room, library, kitchen and back deck (with cold season hot tub!) are all available for shared use. You may come and go as you please without concern for our schedule.

Interaction with Guests

Your privacy is important to us. We're here during your stay and available to help you get the most out of your visit (we love AA!) ... all you need to do is ask.

The Neighborhood

Our home is located amongst the old oaks in the Upper Water Hill neighborhood, about a mile from downtown. While a small hill by most standards, the downhill walk to Main Street is about a 100 feet elevation drop and a healthy uphill walk back.

Getting around

There is plenty of street parking if you arrive by car or need a car to get to your planned activities.

It's a pleasant mile walk through the modest Water Hill neighborhood to Kerrytown/Zingerman's, the Main Street restaurant scene and the river path & trails. About another mile takes you through the heart of downtown to UM central campus or Medical Center or Michigan Stadium.

Close to 4 bus routes -- #13 Newport, #12A & #12B Miller/Liberty, #18 Miller/University.

About a mile from Amtrak station, AirRide from DTW, and bus station ... we'd be happy to pick you up if you come to town through any of these stations.

Other Things to Note

While it's easy to bring a car, our location is ideal for those who enjoy walking as exercise and as a great way to get to know the community you're visiting.

To lighten your travel load, the suite includes a hair dryer, soaps, shampoo and extra towels. There's lots of hanging space in the closets.

Check In
  • Bonnie and Dave's was the perfect choice for our visit to Ann Arbor. Good homemade food (blueberry crisp!) and coffee in the morning, and ready with a solid recommendation for the area. Also, they graciously worked to accommodate our varied arrivals. Thanks for the great stay!

  • Bonnie and Dave were wonderful hosts, with a beautiful, welcoming home. Their location was perfect for anyone visiting Ann Arbor or University of Michigan looking for a quiet, comfortable housing option within a short drive or slightly longer walk to the heart of the city and its many attractions. The rooms and bath were immaculate, beautifully decorated, and extremely comfortable. Our hosts were so relaxed and friendly, we immediately felt welcome in their home.

  • Bonnie and Dave are excellent hosts who take great care of their guests. Their house is minutes away from the UoM central campus and from downtown AA. If you are not very familiar with the city, both of them take the time out to give you an orientation and help you with maps and directions. The house is spacious and cosy, and set in a very serene location. We would definitely recommend anyone visiting AA to stays at this lovely house.

  • This was our first airbnb experience and Bonnie and Dave made sure it was great! It's a beautiful home and we felt very welcome. The little touches like snacks/breakfast, different soaps in the bathrooms, etc. were also nice. I would definitely stay here again.

  • This was a great place to have a mini reunion with relatives we had not seen in 20 years. We only stayed for the afternoon, but place was convenient in a beautiful area and Bonnie laid out food to meet our needs.

  • To sum it up: Lovely home. Friendly guests.

    I traveled to Ann Arbor for the first time with a friend, tagging along while she connected with old friends. We got in late Friday night and stayed until Sunday morning.
    Bonnie and David have a lovely home and they're very nice people. I loved that they have so many eco-friendly elements to their home. A great selling point, IMO.

  • Bonnie and David are wonderful hosts. Their home is beautiful and they make you feel welcome. My colleague and I were in town for the Ann Arbor Film Festival. The suite was the perfect place for us to stay.
