Contemporary home on secluded 1 acre property.
If there are more than 3 of you, you may like to book my other room for the rest of your party.
If you don't have a car, the bus is a short walk away. We have both city bus (The Ride) and University of Michigan shuttle service (which is no-cost) leaving from the same stop. We are a 15 minute bike ride from downtown. There is a bike path most of the way there, starting at the bottom of our street.
For those of you with a car, we have room in our driveway.
We are near:
• North Campus – UofM(0.5 miles) Including the Gerald Ford library
• University of Michigan Hospital (1.5 miles)
• University of Michigan Central Campus (2.3 miles)
• St-Joseph Mercy Hospital Ann Arbor Campus (3.3 miles)
Because we are just outside downtown, we have a little more room here. The yard is large and surrounded by trees. The guest space in the house has been happily used by all our guests. We don't use the living room much, so it makes for a quite private area.
Uncommon on Ann Arbor listings, we offer a lovely breakfast. This is included in your rate. On weekdays, I am available after 8:30 for service. This is when I get back from taking the kids to school. For service earlier than that, I will prepare something that I can leave out for you to eat at your leisure. There are a kettle and a coffee machine for you to make your own hot beverage whenever you please.
Your room has a single bed as well as two day beds on vintage teak frames. These two are better for the smaller people in your group. The bathroom is right off your room, so no need to wander around in the middle of the night.
The main living room has a balcony and a fireplace. Since most of our guests do not use the tv, we have moved it out of the guest space. If you're coming to watch a special tv event, just let us know and we'll put it up for you.
The bathroom is shared with the room on my other listing.
Perfect location for families visiting patients at local hospitals, parents visiting UofM students, or anyone who wants to enjoy this great city while being able to go back to a quiet retreat for the night.
Access to wifi & cable tv. Family-friendly and rainbow-friendly.
Another wonderful stay! Michelle and her family are such gracious hosts. The room is comfortable, cozy and exactly what I need after a long day of classes and work. I really love the skylights in the room and bathroom. So serene! Michelle is always so considerate - bringing filtered water and a pot of hot water for tea every evening :)
Michelle was a great host, attentive and helpful. The place was clean and quiet. I had a very good experience.
Michelle's place is cozy, beautiful and calming. Michelle herself is the best host I've ever met - she is knowledgeable about Ann Arbor geography, events, bus routes; the room is appointed with everything you would need; and her breakfasts are healthy and delicious! Great stay!
I contacted Michelle when I was in Ann Arbor as I was feeling ill and needed a place to rest my head. Michelle responded right away and even allowed me to check in early so that I could rest. I have stayed with Michelle several times now and always have a wonderful experience. She is such a wonderful host, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ann Arbor.
I stay here on a regular basis with Michelle. The room is always cozy, breakfast delicious, great coffee and she often packs fruit or other food for me to take for lunch or snacks on the go! Wonderful!
Michelle was an incredible host, and truth be told way more than that. She was kind, friendly, intuitive, and made me feel more like family than a guest in my short turn around in Ann Arbor. Knowing I was late and only had a brief moment to check in before heading to a work event, I was welcomed with a sack lunch to take on the road in case I was hungry. That in and of itself was above and beyond, let alone the contents of it which could not have been better :-) The breakfast that followed in the morning also blew me away - Fresh squeezed OJ, homemade waffles with Cinnamon Apples, fresh yogurt and berries, a slice of one of the best hard cheeses and salami I have ever had.
The room was perfect, private and warm with nice amenities. I slept like a rock and lamented having to leave after only one day.
While I have only stayed at one other place in Ann Arbor, I will not even bother trying to go elsewhere.
Michelle is such a considerate hostess! She really understand travel and thinks of all the details. I really enjoy chatting with her - especially over her wonderful breakfasts! I will be back!
Michelle's home is so perfect for bnb travelers - and she is the quintessential host! I have stayed with her several times and will continue to book with her when I am in the AA area.
I have stayed with Michelle on two different occasions now, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Ann Arbor area! Her house is so comfortable and feels tucked away. Michelle is so sweet and charming, she makes you feel right at home. She also makes an outstanding breakfast to start out your day. I highly reccomended staying with Michelle and her family!
Michelle was a wonderful hostess. She was communicative from our first correspondence, and made herself available throughout our visit for anything we might need. We had a lovely breakfast in the morning, and she even offered us a ride into town on her way in. I'd stay again in a heartbeat!
