Property description

Easy 1-mile walk to the University of Michigan Stadium from your home away from home lends itself to fun, relaxation and all that Ann Arbor has to offer! Warm and inviting, this spacious family-friendly 2300 square foot colonial offers a heated pool in a back-yard oasis and 4 private bedrooms with 2 1/2 baths. One mile from the stadium and just 2 miles to downtown. Perfect location to attend University of Michigan events (Graduation, Football, visiting your student), plenty of room for shopping/crafting retreat, walking distance to Art Fair or shorter distance to Art Fair shuttle (even more fun, rent the cargo bike to haul your art finds!), close to Ann Arbor events like Summer Festival, Townie Party and Festifools, too!

The granite kitchen with cherry cabinets means cooking while on vacation, might even appeal to you! But, with so many culinary delights 1-2 miles away, you really don't have to cook unless you want to!

This private retreat offers ease in exploring Ann Arbor. You'll be thrilled to walk to the stadium (1 mile away) or bike or walk to downtown (2 miles). You can wind through the neighborhood on your bike or rent our cargo bike to get groceries at whole foods or the local super market. This home is so close to everything, there's no reason to drive unless you want to!

Ann Arbor has a small town feel with big city offerings. Whether you're heading to the newest Latin tapas restaurant, walking to a game at the University of Michigan stadium, biking to the farmer's market, hiking at the 'Arb' or planning a day wandering in Ann Arbor's shops and museums -- you're sure to have a wonderful time in 'tree town!'

Looking for some help planning an afternoon exploring nature or an evening on the town? Let us know! We love our city and are happy to match you up with restaurants, shops and activities suggestions that are best suited for your tastes!

Note: Only guests who are listed on the reservation form are allowed on the property. If you would like a location to host parties or other gathers, please, let us know. We're always happy to help!

Owner info

About the owner: We both grew up in Michigan but really felt at home in Ann Arbor while attending college. We got our degrees but refused to leave the big town thrills with the small town spirit! Our favorite date: One autumn morning, we went for a stroll at the Arboretum (Townies call it the 'Arb') along the Huron River. My husband had the genius idea to get a small batch roasted Zingerman's coffee, a couple of favorite books and our traveling hammock. We set up the hammock overlooking the Huron River. We were the envy of every hiker and kayaker as autumn leaves fell on us lounging in the hammock! What fun!

Why the Owner Chose Ann Arbor:
We fell in love with this property. It's quiet, spacious and close to everything that we love about Ann Arbor. We adore hanging out in the pool area or beautiful kitchen, but we can easily walk or ride our bikes anywhere that we enjoy. We're walking distance to the Big House (University of Michigan's stadium), playgrounds, shops, grocery, restaurants, library, forest hiking, etc. Bike ride or longer walks to Downtown, University of Michigan, Farmer's Market, Kerrytown Shops, Museums and theater.
