Eastern Market's ONLY Boutique B&B.

Built by Cranbrook as an experiment in urban micro-housing and revived by structure-artist Jason Lindy.

Model D calls it the most interesting house in Detroit and MLive lists as a top Airbnb in the region. Recently featured on the National Weird House Tour!

We are located on an urban prairie unique worldover for its serenity and downtown proximity.

Just off the Dequindre Cut, guests can walk or bike to the Riverwalk or Downtown.

Unique Art! Pet friendly!

The space
In 2007 this modern cinder block home was built as the brainchild of Cranbrook Architecture Master’s students Matthew Miller and Thomas Gardner. Their project was a huge undertaking and revolutionary, a 900 square foot home, uniquely designed for urban living was designed and ultimately constructed. The home has a unique open floor plan with no doors separating one room from another but simply through intelligent placement of each amenity privacy and a distinct character distinguishing each room is created.

The space has gone through a series of hands since those students have graduated. Under our care and extensive remodeling we now feature Detroit artists in the space and do our best to showcase it's unique heritage.

Where you’ll be

Detroit, Michigan, United States

The neighborhood around this home could be called many things. It's towards the northern limits of historic Black Bottom, towards the southern limits of Poletown East, and towards the eastern limits of Eastern Market. Our home stands alone and while secluded is very secure within easy view of the neighboring police station and public school.

You'll hear announcements from DEPSA on school day mornings, church bells of The Sweetest Heart of Mary throughout the day, the refreshing sounds of nature, and the humming of a more-and-more bustling downtown skyline in the near distance.
