This place is just what I needed. Somewhere to sleep and relax. Shared bathroom and other people were staying there but I hardly seen them so the bathroom was never an issue. Mary was very sweet and communicated very well. I had a key for my room which I didn't use because I didn't feel the need to lock my stuff up. Mary had many great suggestions for food and entertainment. I would definitely stay here again. Yes it's not a big house but I had plenty of room for my stuff and I definitely could not beat the price. Highly recommend

This stay was a a most welcome and wonderful resting place on a long driving trip. Mary is welcoming and such a fine host. Her home is clean and so comfortable and I had a much needed good night's rest. Easy to find and close to many services.

Staying at Mary's house is like staying at a friend-of-a-friend's house - you are predisposed to like each other. Mary is very warm and sweet and a good conversationalist. The house is modest, room is small, but the bed is comfortable. You can lock your room if you want. The room also has a couple of chairs, a closet, and a work table. Mary provides coffee in the morning. Note that there is one bathroom for the three rooms (Mary's room and the two Airbnb rooms) BUT Mary's work hours are such that you are unlikely to have a conflict waiting for the bathroom. Very convenient location if your destination is Essexville or Bay City!

I was involved with a weekend youth sports event in Saginaw (25 minute drive) & Mary opened her mother's home to me (hers was already full), which is next door to her home. Both homes are on a safe & pleasant small town street. Easy off-street parking in the driveway. The price of this accommodation is attractive and you get an entire small ranch home for less than the cost of a very low budget hotel in the area. I had access to the entire home and everything was clean & working well. The double bed was very comfortable and there were two bathrooms available. Cable TV was available on a newer 46" flat screen in the living room. It was a short 15 minute drive to downtown Bay City which has several nice bar/restaurants along the river. The newer shopping & restaurant areas of Saginaw were 25-30 minutes away. Mary communicated well via text and met me in person to give me the key but otherwise respects your privacy. I was only at the house to sleep & freshen up as I was at the youth sports tournament all day Saturday & Sunday.

This is my second stay with Mary. The accommodations are basic but that is exactly what I was looking for. Mary is very helpful in making sure your stay is to your liking. I wouldn't hesitate to stay with Mary again.

Out going people lovin personality who enjoys the arts and music of all types.
Empty nester. home owner, gardener. My style of hosting is trying to give a very comfortable zen like experience for you while giving you the space and privacy you need.
I love hosting! I have lived in this area and have seen it blossom into an interesting city. Ask me and I will tell you where the best econmical steak is, or the best, hiking trail. If you are travelling to our Upper Peninsula, I can help you out there too!
You like live plays, we got it, doing some genealogy study, we have a beautiful library for you to do your research. Our State Park is full of trails to walk, a museum, canoeing, fishing, swimming. Take your camera you will know doubt see deer, swans, and lots of beautiful vegetation. There are two towers to climb there too. Into Eagles? There is an eagles nest real close to where the house is too.
This is a casual house, lived in warmth,cozy. It will be like home to you. You cant get a safer neighborhood. Take the time to read through my reviews and references.
