About this listing
A super comfy king bed and spacious, bright living room with a desk and chair for business travelers, bathroom, plus access to a fully equipped kitchen makes this the perfect place to spread out and enjoy your stay in Ann Arbor. Our urban farm provides a peaceful setting in the city.
When we say clean we mean it! We had a guest once who worked for a hotel chain and did quality control on cleanliness of the hotels in his chain. He was very impressed with our above average spotlessness.
Coming to Ann Arbor for a conference? Need housing while looking to purchase? Visiting U of M? Need to be close to U Hospital?
Private, spacious and immaculate suite, consisting of 1-BR, full bathroom, LR, and use of fully equipped kitchen, W/D (on different level). Ideal for short term stays--weekends, by the week, or up to a month. We request a minimum stay of two nights. The suite is bright and airy with large slider windows looking out at tree tops: the bedroom does not have windows (in case you are claustrophobic). Most guests find the room and the firm mattress provides an excellent night's sleep and enjoy the complete darkness the room provides. The sliders, a window A/C unit in summer and fans provide comfortable cooling and air circulation.
This is a private suite with a locking door, the second floor of a home (it is not a separate entry from the outside). Very well cleaned between every guest, fully furnished w/ King bed, couch, desk, dresser, all linens, towels, shower products, hair dryer, iron and ironing board and closet for hangables.

Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Park, nearby, two great neighborhood coffee shops within 2 blocks. We provide a "starter supply" of coffee, tea, half and half, fresh fruit, homemade granola, yogurt for your first morning or until it runs out. Or we can make suggestions if you prefer going out. We can easily accommodate food allergy needs or gluten-free guests for our breakfast foods.
The suite is above our offices so there are occasionally other people coming and going on the first floor typically only between 9:30 am and 7 pm.
As hosts, we're friendly and we'll make sure you have what you need but otherwise leave you to enjoy your stay.
We charge $15/night for an extra guest; child under 6 is free.

Interaction with Guests
We are available to answer any questions. We enjoy meeting our guests but realize you didn't come here to visit us!
We do have clients for our businesses that will occasionally be on the first floor during weekdays, but the upstairs suite is completely private.
We have two fabulous independent coffee bars in the neighborhood--of different character but both neighborhood treasures. There's a great carry out, local food place just up the street as well as a fabulous BBQ food truck. A mile away is a healthy casual, vegetarian Indian restaurant and a fresh taco place both ideal for a snack or quick meal. Trader Joe's is a 20 min walk or quick car ride for stocking up on food supplies. We are close to the bus stop for a quick trip into town ( 2.5 mi) or campus (1.5 mi) if you don't want to walk there or don't have a car. And for U of M fans here for game days the Stadium is a very pleasant mile walk away.
Right on the #5 bus line to campus and downtown Ann Arbor bus line.

My partner and I are both self-employed and work unobtrusively out of the downstairs of the house. My dog Sophie comes to work with me and spends the day on a chaise lounge supervising my work. Because we're self-employed we're usually just a text away if you need something.
