I honor diversity whether it is LGBT, People of Color or average, middle of the road people. If you cannot afford the price that I ask, make an offer. 1 private room w/1 real bed. 2 people, maximum, per room. Futon available, also. Shared bathroom. Second private room, at times, available for a higher full fee price because it is the master bedroom with an attached private bathroom. Please ask me about the additional cost. Your pet can be accepted with extra fees & discussion. I live in a two-story, 2400 square feet home on 3/4 acre. Just 8 miles from the University of Michigan. Ample parking. Flat screen television with Netflix streaming in the family room with fireplace as well as the living room with a pastoral scene. Wireless internet. Private bedroom. Fully-equipped kitchen.

Flat screen television with Netflix streaming in the family room with fireplace as well as the living room with a pastoral scene. Wireless internet. Private bedroom. Fully-equipped kitchen. Can pick up and drop off at Detroit Airport for additional fee. A queen-sized futon is available within one of the larger bedrooms. If you require accommodation for more than two-people over a shorter period of time, please contact me to see what is available. No problem if you need something that you left behind. Most likely, I can provide that for you: tooth brush, tooth paste, nail clippers and such. I can pick you or another member up at the airport if needed. Daily, weekly and monthly rates are available. I have two sweet Labrador retrievers named Ellie and Winston and their smaller sidekick, Emma. Bruiser and Skitters, our two cats, are friendly, too. A beautiful brick paved patio is available overlooking a picturesque scene for those beautiful days when you would like to eat and lounge outside. Imagine, seeing a silo and farm from the living room window, crickets in the night and the sweet fragrant air. IMPORTANT: Smoking is only available outside and away from the house and others. A seat and table can be provided. Guest access: Any guest will have access to wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen as well as refrigerator space. There are two full refrigerator/freezers available as well as a beverage refrigerator which can be made available. There are, also, two large flat screen smart tv's available in the home for viewing; one is available in the family room and the other can be added to your room for private viewing. I encourage everyone to enjoy the entire space of the home - especially the porch and patio when weather permits - as each area is beautifully furnished. Only the basement and garage are not available. Interaction with guests: I try to limit my interaction with my guests to the point that I am there to provide them comfort and ease in their travels. Therefore, I am open to questions about the home or the area. I am eager to provide assistance in anyway possible. I can provide pick up, drop off transportation. This can be convenient when going to see an event at the University of Michigan. The neighborhood: Absolutely gorgeous. Sit on my porch and you will be surrounded by stunning homes placed on three-quarters of an acre that seemed to be placed in a meadow. Look directly across the street and you will see farm houses, silos and cow pastures. Very bucolic scene and, yet, very contemporary home. The best of both world. The air smells so sweet and in the summer evenings, you can crickets, frogs and gentle mowing. I love living here. Getting around: There is no public transportation out this far. The nearest bus stop is 2 miles. Bicycles can be rented in town, also. I can offer some transportation accommodations at a fee. Other things to note: You should not be allergic to either dogs or cats. More

Interaction with guests
I keep interactions with guests to a minimal; i.e., I am here to be helpful in your travels and answer all questions happily; however, I greatly respect the privacy and alone time of my guests.

Thank Mary B
Management response:Responded 12 October 2017

I'm glad that you were comfortable. You were my first guest via TripAdvisor and I was meticulous with the cleanliness of the room. I upgraded you to the largest room in the house which had a private bathroom rather than the shared bathroom originally mentioned...More

About the neighbourhood
A lovely subdivision set in a rural area with farms visible from the front windows. Very quiet and safe. Central Ann Arbor is merely 8 miles away. The nearest bus stop is at Meijers on Jackson and Zeeb road which is 5 miles away.
Getting around
It is best if you have a car; some people have used Uber.
