Beautiful Townhouse Close to Ann Arbor - Home Away from Home
Overall Impression: I just spent 10 days in Ann Arbor and this townhouse was a wonderful home away from home. First, the layout was perfect for us. My parents (who were also visiting from out of town) stayed on the ground floor in their own bedroom with their own full bath. My husband, son, and I stayed on the third floor (2 bedrooms, 1 full bath). Being separated by more than one floor was essential to being able to retreat to one's own space each night and maintain sanity! While only 5 of us stayed at the townhouse, there were 13 total (10 adults, 3 kids) for our holiday gathering. My two brothers live in tiny houses in Ann Arbor and it quickly became apparent that the biggest place to spend Christmas day together was our rental. The second floor with the living room, dining, kitchen, and ½ bath was large enough to accommodate a day of fun. And, with the help of a folding card table from a brother, dinner was easily served to all. The huge kitchen made it easy to cook Christmas dinner. We had to borrow some specialty cooking equipment from a brother (basting pan for turkey and potato ricer) but for normal cooking the kitchen was stocked with everything you could need. For anyone staying here longer than a few days, the laundry was also very nice. Located on the top floor across from the master bedroom, it was super convenient.
The Neighborhood/Distance to Ann Arbor: The townhouse is located in a little bedroom development right outside of Ann Arbor. The development seemed very quiet and the townhouse we were in backed to the woods, which was both serene and beautiful to look out on. One of my brothers lives right across state street from the stadium and it never took us more than 15 minutes to get there. Of course, on game day this would be significantly different!
Things to be aware of: 1. Although there are a lot of nice furnishings throughout (e.g. leather sofa and chairs in the living room) there are no dresser drawers in the bedrooms. Be prepared to use your suitcases as drawers. 2. George has a couple of different properties so make sure you have the right information for the property you’re actually renting. Our contract, for example, did not have the correct address on it and we had to confirm with George over email the actual address of the unit we were renting. Fortunately George is responsive over email or phone, but just be aware that you may need to take the initiative to confirm details.
