A modest suite with great amenities of a newly refurbished Historic Art Center home. Enter the home's most private room through the 'closet' of the attached lounge. A full sized bed centers the room which overlooks a tree covered backyard. The shared bathroom has a sunflower shower poking out of the ceiling with a refurbished tub and room for two.
Nestled in a quiet safe neighborhood to the east of the College of Creative Studies (CCS) and Wayne State University (WSU). This address is walking distance to all museums, Detroit's best Sushi, (Wasabi Sushi) Bar/Grill (Macabes) and Local Cafe (14 East - free WiFi). Zip Car station a block away in CCS parking garage!
Please compare (favorably we hope) with The Inns on Ferry Street only 3 blocks away. Just a quick jaunt to the nite-life of Downtown. 'Chefs kitchen' with full fenced in backyard and deck. Free Wi-Fi.
Location cubed? Yes. But really the neighborhood is the reason I live in Detroit. (choosing from cities: San Francisco, Oakland, Chicago, Ann Arbor)
Why? The people. They are all Detroiters. Most of them have lived there longer than I (I've been here 12 years) They all have fixed up their homes and resurrected the area with perseverance, hard work and kindness. A wonderful cross section of cultures, professions and personalities. During summers kids freely play. The reason I started showing movies in Peck Park (which in part was revamped due to? ... one of the neighbors) was to add to the neighborhood collective.
Please know that our home is inhabited by a very chill older
dog / companion as well as a kitten. They are loveable and no-to-low maintenance -- and if need be -- easily tucked away to other parts of the house for your convenience.
A very walkable area that is a block away from all the cultural gems of Detroit: Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit Historical Museum, Detroit Science Center, African American Museum, Scarab Club, etc ...
A reliable bus line will take you downtown 3 blocks away on Woodward Ave.
Scott is great! Super easy to talk to and very congenial. It was nice bouncing ideas off of him in terms of places to eat/drink--he's obviously knowledgable about new places cropping up and also has great taste. I always appreciate a laid back host who's accommodating but also gives their guests adequate space. His kitten, Stella, and dog, Bear, were absolute delights and it was nice having them around to make the place feel even more homey. I only wish I stayed longer!
Scott was an excellent host and I would highly recommend staying with him if you are travelling to Detroit. The stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. 5 stars!
I was in town for an interview at DMC and Scott's place could not have been more convenient. He was a gracious host and I enjoyed his company as well as the company of his pup and kitten. The rainshower in the bathroom was excellent. It snowed quite a bit the night I stayed and the next morning I saw my car had been cleared of the snow on it. Overall an excellent stay and a great first experience on AirBNB.
Had a great experience! Scott was a generous and sincere host. The location is great and it is a quiet and safe place to rest after a long day in the city. Highly Recommend.
My family and I had a great time staying with Scott and his roommates. He was very accommodating and was great with our kids. He is very knowledgeable about Detroit and his neighborhood which we enjoyed very much. We loved the location and the people on his street - our kids made fast friends with the neighbors children and gave them a great introduction to the fun of Scotts beautiful Catalpa trees that they took turns swinging from. I felt very safe in the neighborhood and would move close by if I could.
Scott and his housemates make you feel quite at home. If you want an inside look at the myriad of grassroots efforts to rejuvenate Detroit, stay with Scott!

In 2001, I moved from San Francisco, CA to Detroit to discover North America's last urban frontier. For the last 13 years there has been little that disappoints. Unlike anywhere else, Detroit offers a uniqueness of spirit, opportunity and at times challenges. For 5 years of my residency, I proudly served as a board member for the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID). For the last 7 years, pleasant summer nites allow free movies (Walk-In Theater) to be shown outside in the park (Peck Park) down the street from the house.
