This cozy house is 1000 sf plus a 400 sf basement and sleeps 4-6 persons. The area has a small town feeling with local restaurants and shops just one block away on Ecorse Road and just south of Pelham. There is a local bar down the street and a good Italian restaurant, Pia's and a steak house, Appleby's within walking distance. MacDonald's is also just down the road. The location is excellent and only 10 minutes from the airport, is only 15 minutes from the culture of downtown Detroit nightlife and also 5 minutes from historic Dearborn. The ease to freeways works well if you are on business and need transitional housing. The neighborhood is very quiet and you are surrounded by long term home owners who will stop and chat. The cottage has good heating for winter nights and a new window air conditioner for summer days. There is also room in the back for outdoor fun and for your kids to play! Beware of ground hogs!

We require 50% deposit to book in advance and payment is due 60 days before arrival to secure your rental. Cancellations after your 30 day arrival confirmation are not refundable as the space has been reserved for you. Please call or write for any further details you require. Kick up your heels and relax!

About Sarah

I came to Michigan due to the lure of the Great Lakes and legacy of the automotive industry. I found this old ranch house with charming bones, in a quiet rural setting, and it became a long term renovation project. I work in the design and building industry and saw the potential for a sweet, atomic ranch home that could serve travelers in the Detroit area.

Sarah purchased this house in 2011

Why Sarah chose Michigan

The property is great if you know the area and are looking for a genuine, humble small town house that is centrally located with easy access to freeways and local landmarks. Nothing fancy here! The neighborhood is modest and filled with nice, working class folks. The backyard is still rough and has a new, small patio, a tree and a huge lawn with plenty of room. The outside, old school, aluminum siding still has some original dents and flaws so you must be okay with that!

What makes this house unique

This house has everything, just in smaller scale. It is attractive because of it's efficiency in design and set in a peaceful location complete with a front porch to watch the rabbits and birds!
