Ann Arbor house description

Bellanina Guest House is located in the heart of Ann Arbor's historic Kerrytown District and one block from Bellanina Day Spa. This exclusive residence is on the second floor of a 160 year old home surrounded by antique perennials and across from Kerrytown Shops and Market and the famed Kerrytown Farmer's Market (open Wednesdays & Saturdays in season). The area is vibrant with life and activity. With the Kerrytown Concert House next door, classical and jazz music often escapes their confines and fills the Guest House! Our floors are creaky but are covered in Natural Seagrass flooring and antique oriental rugs. The charm of this house keeps regulars, such as parents of kids at U of M or those coming for football weekends coming back. It becomes their home away from home. We have housed many professors for short and extended stays or couples come to escape their work-a-day world in search of a little peace and quiet from the kids and a night on the town.

Bellanina Day Spa & Spa Amenities: Bellanina Day Spa & Gift Boutique is a sister company, located one block South on Fourth Avenue. Bellanina Day Spa is an award winning Spa with the finest services in skin care, massage and nail services, steam rooms, whirlpool hydrotherapy and a gift boutique. Just mention you are a Guest at the Guest House when booking your appointment and receive a free Steam shower when you purchase a massage or skin care service, Tuesday - Thursday. www.bellaninadayspa.com 734 327 1000

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2003

                              About the owner: My life is ruled by my dog, Ling-Ling. I never thought a 4 1/4 pound dog could have such power over me! When I am not playing with her, I am busy running 3 Guest Houses in Ann Arbor, and being Co-Owner of Bellanina Day Spa (one block south of this location) or Bellanina Instiute (located on the first floor of this Kerrytown location). I travel a lot teaching a wonderful anti-aging technique called Bellanina Facelift Massage, to massage therapists, estheticians at spas and resorts around the country. My dog, Ling-Ling and I call North Carolina mountains my home but travel back and forth to Ann Arbor, enjoying my time in one of my three Bellanina Guest Houses. What a life!

                              Why the Owner Chose Ann Arbor:
                              I rented this property in 1994 on the first floor and began working out of my home offering massage and facelift massage. I also painted abstract art in the front room of the first floor. As time went on, this building turned into a Spa and I took over the second floor. Now, a couple of decades later, this building has re-invented itself and houses an apartment upstairs and the offices to the Institute and Spa downstairs. This property has been a gift to me and allowed me to re-invent my businesses over and over again!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Unique benefits in Kerrytown - the list is long: Kerrytown Concert House next door (I've listened to Wynton Marsalis LIVE while lounging in bed sipping champagne); The Farmer's Market across the street; Kerrytown Shops and great food, shopping and cappucinos; Zingerman's a block away; Bellanina Day Spa down the street - A MUST FOR R & R!
