About this listing
This delightful home is a stone's throw from Main Street, the Farmer's Market, and the U of M campus. Beyond its charm, the home offers travelers' favorite amenities: comfortable double bed, furnished kitchen & common area, and a porch view of the park!
Welcome to Ann Arbor!
The Old West Side is the historic district of Ann Arbor. With lots of families and grad students milling about, its very charming, comfortable, and quiet. Across the street from the front porch is West (email hidden) space for jogging or picnicking. The park makes you feel like you are far out of town even though Main Street is one block away. The Farmer's Market and several local restaurants and breweries, as well as yoga studios, shops, and cafes are just a walk away. The U of M Central Campus is a 10 minute bike ride, or 20 minute walk, as is the U of M Hospital---a perfect location for visiting scholars, students, and families.
If you have more than two people in your reservation, please see "Spacious room in downtown historic home"
There are two downstairs bedrooms, one off the dining room and one off the kitchen, each with a double bed. The house is very open, simple, and comfortable. Guests will have access to on site parking, washer and dryer, fully furnished kitchen, living room, and dining area, a big back yard with a table and a grill, a front porch with a swing and Air Conditioning (a rare historic home luxury!).
Interaction with guests
My roommate and I are graduate students at U of M. I live upstairs and my roommate lives in one of the rooms downstairs. We will share common space, a bathroom, and the kitchen during your stay. The guest bathroom will be used by you, and perhaps other AirBnB guests, if their stay overlaps with yours (See "Spacious room in downtown historic home" for more on other listings in this home).
In the summertime I tend to be outdoors more than in so I'll be lucky if I see you! I have lived in Ann Arbor for several years and would be happy to guide you to it's sweetest and most important attractions.
