The space

My name is Tim and I welcome you to my home as your gracious host. This listing is for renting a room. If you are looking to rent the whole house, please review my other listing for this house. This home is a restored and beautifully appointed Craftsman style bungalow 1928 Montgomery Ward kit home. You will enjoy all the comforts of todays modern home combined with historic charm, beautiful gardens, great professional kitchen, conservatory, oak and walnut wood floors, warm interior accents and stunning natural lakefront views. The home is located on Sylvan Lake which is an all sports lake with abundant wildlife and great fishing perfect for sunset cruises. Located in the center of Oakland County, you quickly transition from this relaxed natural setting to the amazing local small town of Sylvan and Keego Harbor and minutes away to the dynamic upscale communities of Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham. The second floor consists of a furnished bedroom with a full size bed, full bath, and an office space. The main floor master suite consists of King size bed, ample closet space, and full bath. The fabulous kitchen has commercial grade 6 burner stove, two ovens, microwave dishwasher, and all the small appliances. There is cable and internet service available.
i do have two very friendly cats that require no attention from my guests, but will warmly welcome you as one of the family. My home is amazing and you will love staying here. You will be enchanted by the setting and want to spend many of your days enjoying the views from the glass conservatory. This is a first class home for entertaining guests. I am flexible on the rental needs from staying for one night in one bedroom, or renting the whole house for an extended stay.

House Rules

The second level bedroom and office area is the primary space available for single occupancy. If you require a second bed in that space, special arrangements can be made. The rates quoted are based on single or a couple rental rate. This is a smoke free home. This is a great home for entertaining, however, the details of any gatherings will need to be discussed and agreed upon prior to any parties. Depending on the number of people involved, an additional cleaning fee may be applied. Since I live in the home, if the whole house is requested to be available to be used for short term (weddings or other private gatherings) or longer periods, these terms must be agreed upon. I do have two cats and they will be housed elsewhere for any full house rentals. I do have a kayak and a canoe available for your use. I live on an all sports lake and have available dock space at my home. The fee for launching and pulling boat out of water requires a $20.00 ramp fee payable to the local boat club.
Whole house rentals are available at special rates depending on availability.

Absolutely amazing stay. Clean and modern yet with quirky charms. The home is beautiful and Tim is such a generous and flexible host. The location is in short distance to a nature trail as well as having an incredible view of the lake it is on. As well as having so many bars …
