Hello! Our home is an 1890 Victorian mansion that we purchased in 2012 and lovingly renovated over the course of three years using a team of local craftspeople and myself. This space is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom that spans 2 stories with much of its original character preserved. Located in the heart of Midtown just one block from 15+ bars and restaurants, DMC, Shinola and way more. The space is designed with leisure stays in mind but also capable of accommodating business travelers comfortably.

The space
This house was built in 1890, purchased by us in 2012 in abandoned condition and renovated over the course of three years to capture its natural charm and beauty. Wood used for the trim work is over 120 years old. Much of the furniture is locally sourced and built by local artists. There is heating and cooling throughout the space for year-round comfort and convenience. The space is quiet and well-appointed in a college neighborhood.

Guest access
You’ll receive an access code which you’ll use on a keypad on the door for access. This is unit #4 and accessed from the rear of the building. There is plentiful street parking on Forest Ave and Prentis St. for your vehicles!

Other things to note
Our home is equipped with high-speed WiFi, Apple TV, cookware, utensils and coffee supplies. If you’d like to prepare food during your stay, Marcus Market is very close and there is also a Whole Foods a little beyond that. There is a staircase inside the unit to get to the bedrooms. Midtown is very lively! It's a college/ young adult neighborhood. This space is not intended nor welcomes parties or large gatherings.
