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.

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.
