What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! This house is beautiful- lovingly maintained and full of creature comforts. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a perfect fall weekend in Ann Arbor. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are thoughtful touches throughout, like extra bedding tucked into closets, and bottled water waiting for us in the fridge. It's a quick 5" walk to the Big House, and walking to campus was easy, even for the kids. Phyllis is so welcoming and made sure we had the lay of the land as we got settled in. We hope to stay here again on our next trip to Ann Arbor!

Perfect place for a Michigan football weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property was the perfect setting for a mini college reunion with three of my friends. There is actually plenty of room for more people, which I will keep in mind for next time. Phyllis was a gracious host, allowing me to drop off some things a bit early and providing a full tour of the house, yard and facilities. We spent most of the weekend on the back patio and enjoyed the beautiful yard. The basement entertainment room was great, and the TV, bar and card table were all put to good use. When it was game time, a quick 10 minute walk and we were inside the Big House. I almost didn't want to post this, hoping to keep the property under the radar, but that wouldn't be fair to Phyllis. Highly recommend, hope to be back again next year.

Beautiful Home in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this property. The house was adorable and accommodated eight of us very comfortably. It is conveniently located - only about a 15 minute walk to the stadium and 20-30 minute walk to Main Street/campus. Phyllis, the owner, was at the house to greet us and provided us with a walk through upon arrival. We couldn't have asked for a better stay!

A wonderful house, great location, clean, well-stocked and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Phyllis' house and we remain huge fans! It was the perfect place for two families to gather before and after graduation at the stadium, which is only 2 blocks away. The house is well - appointed, super clean, and has all the amenities a family needs for a lovely weekend. We will continue to book weekends at this house and recommend it 100%!

Great spot for a trip to the Big House

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as advertised, and is even nicer than the pictures. It easily accommodated our group of nine as we were visiting for the homecoming football game. The house is a stones throw from the stadium and great place to kick off your tailgate. You're right in the heart of the action - close to both the Stadium and downtown.

Phyllis was an incredibly welcoming host and keeps a lovely home. She is responsive and eager to help if you have any problems (although, we didn't have any!). The retro basement is a great place to hang out in a large group, and the backdeck is perfect for barbecuing. Beds were comfortable. I would recommend this house to anyone and we hope to be back in future years.

Fun House by the Big House

  • 5 of 5

Great house with all the amenities you could need, and is right by the stadium! We will definitely stay there again for a football weekend. Phyllis is a great landlady, though we didn't get the cold case of beer I've heard so much about. :)
