The suite is bright and airy with large slider windows looking out at tree tops, however the bedroom does not have windows.

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.
Other Things to Note
Off street parking, gardens and porch rocking chairs overlooking them to enjoy, chickens to feed, picnic table.
We aim to provide a clean, relaxing and welcoming space to all, that can be your home away from home for a couple days or a few weeks. The kitchen is available and well equipped for you to prepare meals or store your leftovers from eating out. We request that the counters be left clean and dishes either washed or put in dishwasher when you are done cooking. Other than that we welcome you to make this your home-base for whatever brings you to town.
Judy's place completely suited our needs during our four days in Ann Arbor. It was the perfect size and location for our trip.
Prior to the trip, Judy was easy to get in touch with to coordinate arrival. She did a great job of showing us around the space and explaining everything we needed to know.
The space itself was comfortable, clean and welcoming. It was obvious that a lot of thought had gone in to creating a warm and hospitable place to stay.
This was my second stay here, and not my last. Everything was great, and Ann Margaret and Judy are perfect hosts.
We had a wonderful stay with Judy in Ann Arbor. Highly recommended. Very clean and comfortable. Judy was a pleasure to work with and extremely accommodating. Great location too!!
Nice experience at this place, Judy was flexible with late night check in and later check out. The place was very clean and well kept.
There was no separate lock on the apartment which could separate it from the rest of the house, this could perhaps be improved in the future.
If one is cluster phobic, this place might not be for them as the bedroom does not have windows to outside.
Overall, good experience, thanks Judy!
I never thought about someone being claustrophobic before and if this is the case this might not be a good fit. However the living room with many windows also has a very comfie 6 foot couch that can be used for sleeping. We also have a foam mattress which could be placed in the LR as well. I hope you weren't uncomfortable during your stay. Most people love the dark and quiet of the room.
Had a peaceful and quiet stay at jury's home for the second time! Everything was exactly how I left it the first time. I slept so well I didn't want to get up......
We enjoyed staying with Judy and Ann Margaret! They were accommodating and helpful, the homemade granola was delicious, and they are great hosts. The apartment was lovely and comfortable, exactly what we needed for a few days in Ann Arbor.
My husband and I stayed for two nights and enjoyed our stay. The place is clean, quiet and convenient to town and had everything we needed for a great stay. The breakfast left by Judy was a great bonus. Highly recommend and would stay again if in the area!
About the Host, Judy
We welcome you to make this your home base while in Ann Arbor. Your suite is clean, bright and spacious and we'll do our best to make your stay comfortable without being intrusive. The space affords alot of privacy. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you to make breakfast or dinner if that's what you like, or we can point you to our favorite places in town. I enjoy making homemade granola for guests and leave yogurt along with fresh fruit in the refrigerator for a quick breakfast Coffee, teas and half & half are provided. If you prefer soy or almond milk please let me know in advance.
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.
We love our neighborhood because it is safe, friendly, has an awesome indy coffee bar (and roaster), there's a great, local foods take out place 1/4 mile down the road, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are close, it's close but not too close to campus and town, is on a bus line, and is walking distance to MI Stadium.
