Our historic home is in the largest historic residential district in the US. We are 3 blocks from a wonderful main street with great shopping. Our town has many museums, parks and restaurants. This room has an adjustable air queen bed and private bath. The bathroom has original turn of the century fixtures and is very quaint. Bedrooms are located upstairs in the back wing of the house and are very private and quiet. The kitchen is very large (15 x 30) but cozy and is available for your use. We do have pets and are a nonsmoking household. Quiet walkable neighborhood. An amazing architecture walk with map guided tour. The Dark Horse brewery is a quick walk away as is Schulers 100 yr old restaurant. Ample parking. Bicycles available. Front porch with swing for two, screen porch when its dark (no mosquitoes}, heated pool, gazebo and perennial gardens for relaxing. We can't wait to share our home with you so expect a tour! We are LGBT friendly. ALL are welcome.
A pet is okay as long as a crate is available for it to stay in if you're out. Thank you
We also welcome long term guests and if you are considering that option know that you'll have a cupboard and space in the refrigerator. You may also use our laundry. All of our long term guests have had pets so know that's also fine with us.
Spectacular stay, once again. The room was wonderful and comfortable. Hope to come back again next time.
The worst part of staying here is leaving. After looking forward to our now-annual trip up to Marshall in December, we have both been most excited about staying with Michelle and Bob in their lovely, welcoming, and fantastic home, and dreading the leaving part that always occurs far too soon. Top notch all the way, as always, and we look forward to staying again next year!
Michelle is the perfect host with a beautiful (and historic) home and comfortable guest accommodations. I enjoyed learning about how the home came to its current state over the past 150 years, as well as exploring the small town of Marshall.
Love staying with the Mees family! They are fabulous hosts - great communication and very warm and welcoming!
Love staying with the Mees family! Anyone who has an old house can tell you that in winter (especially this winter!), the charm of an old house can be somewhat diminished by the challenge of keeping all the rooms warm. However, this has NEVER been the case at the Mees's! No matter how snowy and cold the Michigan night, I've always arrived to a warm cozy room. Michelle really goes the extra mile in anticipating anything her guests may need. I highly recommend staying here.
We had a great time, only wish we could have stayed longer. It was a privare room in a very inviting home. Michelle's place was the perfect stop on our way to a MSU football game, only 50 minutes from campus.
We had a very comfortable stay while in Marshall at Michelle and Bob's place. The room itself, very quaint and private. The location was excellent, as it was a short distance walking to the center of town. Their house was gorgeous. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in Marshall and we'll look forward to meeting Michelle next time.

We are a family with a college age son at home. Husband is an engineer and I am a Weight Watchers leader. Our passion is restoring our historic home and we'd love to share it with you. Our style of hosting is we want to know if there's anything you need or questions you might have and then we'll leave you be. 5 things I can't live without: sitting on the screened porch on summer nights, lunch with a friend, sunglasses/handbags, strong coffee and Luxe lipstick by Lancome. My favorite travel destination was Turkey. My next trip planned is to London.
