Cozy, tastefully decorated 1-bdrm apartment in great location. Wake up to a view of the woods, enjoy a stroll along the river, cool off in our apartment complex pool - simply relax around "home." Or head to nearby Kerrytown (Zingerman's, Farmer's Market) before exploring the UMich campus.
This is an extremely pleasant apartment perfect for quiet folks on a weekend getaway, business trip, college visit, etc. The spacious living room includes a large window looking out onto the woods that border the river, and you can catch glimpses of water through the trees (of course, during the winter you can see much more!). The apartment is well stocked with books (I'm a grad student, after all!), and the living room loveseat is perfect for curling up with one of them. Next to the living room is a breakfast nook and kitchen. The kitchen has all the amenities/tools necessary to enjoy home-cooking during your trip.
Whether you've spent the day cheering on the Wolverines, touring campus, kayaking on the river, or simply lounging by the apartment complex pool, you'll enjoy coming back to our cheerful bedroom. The queen-sized bed has a pillowtop mattress, and there's a walk-in closet. Next to the bedroom is a full bath complete with a shower/tub and ample counter space.
With the exception of the bathroom and the wood-floor kitchen, the apartment is carpeted throughout. This gives it a very cozy feel. And if you are traveling with 3, that carpet is not a bad base for an air mattress (I have a twin sized one that you're welcome to use). The apartment is on the first-floor, but as the building sits on a small hill, the space feels private.
There is ample parking spaces (no special pass required). We are also within walking distance of bus stops and the Amtrak station. You should know that trains do pass through and blow their whistles even at night. If you are a light-sleeper, you might want to bring earplugs, but if you're like me (and the vast majority of my guests), you'll barely notice them.
You have access to the entire apartment. You are also free to use the complex pool and park your car outside the apartment (no special registration required).
I really enjoy meeting new people, and if I'm in town, I will greet you upon your arrival. If I am away, then I will arrange for an easy key pick-up. I am always available by email or phone, and am happy to answer any questions before or during your stay.
I really love this apartment, and I hope you do too!
My apartment building is very quiet; please respect my neighbors. You are welcome to have a few friends over for dinner, but please no parties. And while you can smoke outside, please, please, please do not smoke inside. Finally, I strive to keep the space as clean and tidy as possible. I appreciate anything you can do to help me keep that up.
