About the Property

7 miles to University of Michigan campus, hospital, downtown Ann Arbor

Hamptons style shingled guest house steps away from owner's larger house. Everything you'll need for a weekend (or longer) visit to Ann Arbor. Situated on 3.5 acres with pool (Mid-May through Mid-October, weather permitting); river view. Beautiful wooded setting, quiet oasis yet just 10 minutes drive from football stadium, campus, downtown Ann Arbor restaurants and shopping, hospitals, etc. This large loft/studio has 2 levels, living/sleeping area on top level, separate fully equipped kitchen/dining area/bathroom on lower level. Washer/dryer & iron and ironing board in unit. Central AC/heat. Wifi and basic cable with Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime. Blow dryer. Private gated driveway. Easy parking. Sleeps 4 with a king sized bed and 2 twins (daybed), but this is studio loft- 1,000 sf of sleeping/living area but sleeping/living area is all in one large room. This is a great choice for a couple or family visiting the Ann Arbor area- we want you to have fun but this is not a party house. Please note- the guesthouse and the property are nonsmoking inside and out. There is a $50 cleaning fee per stay. We will consider a longer term rental from December through March.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We built the main house and guest house in 1999 but make no mistake- now that our kids are grown and gone, Bindi the dog runs the show! And now she has a little brother named Louie

Why the Owner Chose King, Ann Arbor, MI, USA:
We found 3-1/2 acres on one of the most beautiful sites in SE Michigan. We built our home and guest house the way we like to live- casual, lots of light, great views, access to the outdoors- comfortable but not 'fancy'.
