About Christine

Our main house was built in 1860 - and we have renovated it from top to bottom (multiple times). We built the carriage house on our property in 2000 - and at one point used this as our office. We love how the conversion to a loft guest house came out ---it is such a wonderful space.

Christine purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Christine chose Michigan

We love this property - it is so beautiful and peaceful - yet we are so close to downtown Ann Arbor - we have the best of both worlds.

We had a wonderful stay in a beautiful setting. Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay for 5 nights while my daughter attended a camp at U of M. This was perfect. It was an easy drive to campus and yet we were in a beautiful setting when at our room. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, either to prep an easy meal or bring our take-out meal home. Setting was quiet and private but close to Ann Arbor and other quaint towns. There is a great little coffee shop right around the corner. We even had plenty of room to set up our sewing machine and work on a project on the large dining table. Highly recommend staying here!

Very cute house with a beautiful view!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and i stayed here for a couple days and it was wonderful!! Christine and Courtney were both very sweet and helpful and their carriage house was great! It was very well taken care of and so pretty with all the windows so you can see the sunset perfectly above the trees. Also in the perfect place everything you could want to go to in the area is 10-20 minutes away. Would definitely go back again.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place to stay -- the accomodation is comfortable, even luxurious, and the country setting is peaceful and beautiful. Perfect for one person or a couple -- easy access to the Ann Arbor area, but nice to be able to get away from all the traffic and congestion there.

Christine & Courtney were great hosts. The full kitchen and loft were in excellent condition and provided all that we needed. We were able to grill out on the their deck and eat in the covered gazebo one night and enjoy the outdoors. The property is gorgeous and provides a tranquil nights stay! We'll definitely be back!

Ann Arbor Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We are very glad the hotels we normally stay at in Ann Arbor were booked because we really enjoyed our stay in this spectacular carriage house. It is worth the short drive to experience this property. Pristine accommodations in a private setting surrounded by wonderful gardens. Christine and Courtney made us feel welcome and at home. And the carriage house is situated so you feel like you are in your own private home. We highly recommend this property! We look forward to our return.

Perfect Stay, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Although this place stood out in the photographs...the beauty of this house and property exceeded our expectations. Christine was great to work with; attentive and kind. The carriage house was gorgeous, super clean, and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The property is equally as fantastic. We saw deer twice while we stayed. Only minutes away from Ann Arbour. I'm so glad that we found this treasure. I hope to come again, soon. Highly recommend!

Our Carriage House offers the best of both worlds - a tranquil pastoral setting situated on 60 acres of land. We are surrounded by nature. Enjoy hiking trails, walking, mountain biking etc. Yet - we are so close to downtown Ann Arbor 7 miles to Main Street. Ann Arbor offers so many cultural, sporting and other events - not to mention great restaurants. We are very close to the University of Michigan - 3 miles from East Medical Campus; 5 miles from North Campus and- 7 miles from the main hospital and main campus.
