Our guestroom is the ideal place to experience the charm of Ann Arbor. Centrally located in the Germantown neighborhood we're only a 5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants of Main Street or a 10 minute stroll to the University of Michigan's campus. And come game day we're just a 10 minute walk to the Big House!
Our first floor apartment has the charms of original hardwood floors and fittings with the convenience of a newly remodeled kitchen and speedy wi-fi. We're discovering our Michigan green thumbs, so feel to enjoy our sprouting gardens on our front or back porches. The guestroom has great natural light to start your day and a new Sealy mattress for the day's end. We provide fresh towels and sheets for every guest. You'll share our bathroom, living, and dining room with us, so we hope you'll feel at home.
If you're driving to Ann Arbor, we have free parking directly behind the house or if you're flying in we're a 5 minute walk from the Blake Transit Center where the Michigan Flyer drops off passengers from the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
During your visit, we recommend grabbing a locally brewed pint at Jolly Pumpkin before catching an art flick at the historic Michigan Theater. Or if you're here on a Saturday the Kerrytown farmer's market is not to be missed and an easy walk up 4th Ave.
Before moving to Ann Arbor for work and graduate school, we loved staying with Airbnb hosts as a way to discover local secrets in the heart of the city. So we'd love to pay it forward and share the best Ann Arbor has to offer with you. We can’t wait to share our home with you!

Rowena and Luke were wonderful hosts! Their home is lovely, clean and cozy (despite the freezing weather outside!) They provided clear, helpful information in the lead-up to my trip, and great recommendations for places to eat, things to do, etc while I was there. They respected my privacy, while at the same time being friendly and gracious.
Their place is a quick 5-10 minute walk from campus, and 5-10 minute walk from a great range of restaurants and bars. It was such a convenient place to stay if you have any business at the University. I highly recommend it!
This is a beautiful apartment in the perfect location. Rowena and Luke are super interesting, accommodating and extremely helpful. I couldn't have had a better stay!
Rowena and Luke are lovely hosts who have great recommendations for things to do. The apartment is in an ideal location and walking distance to almost anything you'd want to do while in Ann Arbor. The bed is really comfy and clean and the room is bright. Decor is beautiful throughout. This was our first experience using air bnb where the homeowners were around so it's more like staying with a college friend than at a hotel- which means you get great recommendations and somebody is actually friendly to you, but you do have to share their small bathroom, which is a little awkward. The shower is tiny but stays warm. They do give you a spot to keep your toiletries so that's really nice.
The farmers market mentioned is definitely worth visiting- one of the better ones I've been to. They have excellent taste in food and drinks so take their advice! There are also a few beautiful churches in walking distance if you're looking for a place to worship.
Most importantly- my husband and I were there for a football game for the opposing team, and they were still welcoming and didn't heckle us :)
It was a great pleasure to stay with Rowena and Luke. They have a cosy home. The location is just great, just a few minutes walk from the State Street and the Liberty Street as well as the University.
I needed a spot close to campus for an extended work stay, and found that Rowena's place was a very convenient 10 minute walk to my office! There are only a few hotels in the area, and are all expensive/booked the days leading up to game day, so I was really excited to have found this listing.
Rowena and Luke are ideal hosts - they do a very thorough job planning for your arrival - sending you tips beforehand, leaving notes on local eateries and attractions in your room, and preparing an inviting, full sized bed. The house is quaint, clean, and overall welcoming for guests. The house rules are very reasonable, and really, mostly common sense for any house guest.
I plan on coming back because of the convenience, charm, and nice hosts!
My friend and I embarked on a football trip to Michigan and stayed with Rowena and Luke, who couldn't have been more courteous and welcoming. I'm a newbie to airbnb, but Rowena welcomed us and made us feel right at home immediately - the accommodations were just as advertised, and she even helped us find a few town landmarks we needed. While our schedule had us on-the-go most of our 2 days, the time we spent with Rowena and Luke together was great. Very friendly couple, whose place was welcoming and comfortable - would definitely recommend, and someday hope to run into them again. Dave B.
Rowena and Luke were fantastic hosts - very communicative, hospitable, and their place is very cutely decorated and clean.
The location is perfect. My husband and I were in town for a football game and a wedding. We were able to walk everywhere: the Big House was about 10-15min, Main Street was a few blocks away, and central campus was about a 5-min walk. We were really happy that the nightly rate came with parking, as we had driven to A2 from Chicago. No need to worry about finding street parking or paying for it in the lot.
Our room was great, and they even had information printed/laid out about local activities/restaurants. Very thoughtful! One thing that should be noted is that the bathroom is shared, though Rowena and Luke were very nice about making sure they worked around our schedule.
We had a fantastic time and would definitely come back in a heartbeat!
Rowena was a fabulous host! She was very helpful and welcoming. She also shared information she had prepared for guests about transportation and things to see and do while in Ann Arbor. The location was great for exploring Ann Arbor and getting to campus, and the house was super cute and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again!
My daughter and I had a fantastic time at Luke and Rowena’s place. Rowena met us and walked us downtown pointing out places to eat and telling us a bit about Ann Arbor. Both Rowena and Luke were very accommodating and helpful with advice about the area and sharing a bit of their life with us. Clean, safe, conveniently located and wonderful people, I would highly recommend staying here.
I really enjoyed my stay with Rowena and Luke
