The Old West Side Historic District is the oldest neighborhood historic district in the USA, full of houses from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
There is a route 12 bus stop right across the street (toward downtown) and right next door (toward Stadium Blvd.). 12A goes from the house to downtown, 12B goes from downtown to the house.
No smoking indoors, we are in a family oriented neighborhood so be respectful about noise levels, etc. Please take your shoes off when inside. Let us know if you need on-site parking, use the concrete driveway between the yellow (our) and blue house. There is also open parking on Eberwhite St. right across from us.
Daniel and Jessica were more than welcoming. I have stayed with them before and found the accommodations just as nice the second time. Very pleasant and comfortable. It is lovely to walk around the neighborhood. Daniel was very quick to fix a faucet issue.
Daniel and Jessica were extremely communicative and helpful as we planned for our trip. The house is terrific: warm and inviting, nicely decorated, spacious, clean, well organized. The central location - a short walk to downtown and close enough to the stadium. It made the celebration of our daughter's graduation weekend really special. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
My family and I stayed at Dan and Jessica's sweet home for a long weekend. We were very comfortable with plenty of space. The location is perfect. We had no difficulties. Everything is exactly how it is described on the website. We hope to return soon!!
This was our second time staying with Dan and Jessica and it's really feeling like home. We had an opportunity to try all the beds this time and they are ALL comfortable! It was a perfect distance from downtown…you could walk to get ice cream and feel justified that you'd walk it off. We also took advantage of our Y membership and used the brand new A2 YMCA that was very close.
Daniel's lovely old house is in a neighborhood largely composed of similarly charming historical homes. My companions and I enjoyed a short (under 15 minutes) walk to downtown Ann Arbor from Dan's house. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable. Each of (the three of) us had our own room. I stayed in the finished basement that included a beautiful bathroom with a contemporary shower. Although Dan was there, it felt as though we had his house to ourselves. Our paths didn't cross much with Dan's, but we did enjoy a brief conversation with him before he left in the morning.
We love staying at Daniel and Jessica's house in A2! We have been there several times and love the feel and coziness of their house. This past time we played in the backyard and threw snow balls before the snow melted. Their house is very warm and inviting. I love the 3 levels. This is highly recommended.
