About this listing
Come stay in Historic New Center, just 3 blocks north of the Fisher Building. There are three adorable blocks of turn of the century homes, including one street with a pedestrian boulevard.
The house is a short distance from many of the attractions and amenities in the Cass Corridor and Cultural Center, but far enough away to be quiet and low-key.
We have a 4 bedrooms, which are inhabited by us, your hosts, and a mixture of short- and long-term travelers such as yourself.
There are spacious common areas for working, enjoying a cup of coffee or just relaxing. There is internet at the house, as well as a washer/dryer.
Down the street there is a CVS drugstore for convenience purchases, and on Grand Boulevard there area a handful of bars/restaurants, a new coffee shop, convenience stores and also a cafe and restaurant in the beautiful Fisher Building.
Our house is your house! No secret areas you can't access as a guest.
Interaction with Guests
We're moderately busy, like most working people, but we love sharing time when we have it. Our long term guests often become more like family than house mates. We like to joke around, share meals, invite each other out, watch movies together etc.
We have nice neighbors, beautiful midwestern architecture and wide range of building types from low to high density.
Our block has a quiet neighborhood feel - no major hustle and bustle. If you want to experience residential Detroit, this is a good place. We like to garden and sit on the porch on the weekend.
The house is a 5-15 minute bike ride to major cultural activities on Woodward / W. Grand Boulevard and Cass Corridor: restaurants/bars, Wayne State University, museums etc.
There are outdoor movies and concerts nearly every day in the summer at New Center Park, ~3 blocks away.
We are walking distance from the Amtrak station.
We are near two "high-frequency" bus lines, Woodward/53 and Dexter/16, as well as the Fenkell and Hamilton routes.
There is also quick access to I-75, I-94 and M-10 for those arriving via car.There is ample, safe on-street parking along the block in front of the house.
