About this listing
You’ll love these two rooms for their size, ambiance, and historic flavor. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). There is a double bed and two couches (one in the bedroom, one in the study room) - accommodating up to 4 people. The house is historic and is over 100 years old. It was built by the architect Hans Gehrke for Robert C. Traub, the jeweler, in 1914 and was featured in the "House Beautiful" magazine same year.
Historic district of Arden Park/East Boston Blvd is a unique location.
Your bedroom, study room, your bathroom and dining room in the morning where gourmet breakfast will be served; backyard, front yard. Kitchen can be used with prior notice. Only dishes and table ware shown as "GUESTS" can be used. Entry keys allow for any time entry and exit to and fro the house. Room can be locked from the inside but not from the outside. It is a noble house, you are guaranteed your privacy and quiet enjoyment of the room.
Interaction with guests
I am on premises almost at all times and will respond immediately to texts or calls.
Historic grandeur. Widest boulevard. 25 minutes from the airport. One block east of Woodwartd Avenue, main street of the city. 10 minutes to downtown. 10 minutes to near suburbs like Royal Oak. Two-three blocks away - regular Detroit homes, not so great, not so spectacular.
Car is all you need. Light rail is under construction and will be available soon. Uber is very popular as well as Lyft (get the apps!)
Other things to note
Parking is in front of the house or in my garage.
Please place all waste paper in the trash bins in the bathroom. No smoking. Parties, gatherings, guests of the guests are to be discussed in person and if agreed - arranged via Airbnb.
I love my family, ballet, art, good cinema, books, good food and living creatures of all kind. I like to have a meaningful conversation or just listen to your stories. My life's motto: "Give more than you can, take less than you need". History is very important to me - architecture, music, art, theatre, people - I see and appreciate history everywhere. When I travel, I travel light. I like to be a hostess for my friends or events.
