About Nina Howard
My life is ruled by my 5 pound dog, Ling-Ling. I never thought a dog could have such power over me! When I am not playing with her I am busy running 6 Guest Houses in Ann Arbor. My dog, Ling-Ling and I call North Carolina mountains my home, where my art studio (and garden) is located, but travel back and forth to Ann Arbor, enjoying my time in one of my Ann Arbor Guest Houses. What a life!
Nina Howard purchased this House in 2003
Why Nina Howard chose Kerrytown
I rented this property in 1995 on the first floor and began working out of my home offering massage and facelift massage. I also painted abstract art in the front room of the first floor. As time went on, this building turned into a Spa and I took over the second floor. Now, a couple of decades later, this building has re-invented itself and houses an apartment upstairs and the offices to the Institute and Spa downstairs. This property has been a gift to me and allowed me to re-invent my businesses over and over again!
What makes this House unique
Unique benefits in Kerrytown - the list is long: Kerrytown Concert House next door (I've listened to Wynton Marsalis LIVE while lounging in bed sipping champagne); The Farmer's Market across the street; Kerrytown Shops and great food, shopping and cappucinos; Zingerman's a block away.

We had a wonderful stay
Great Ann Arbor Weekend!
This was a great stay for us! Typically we stay at a nearby hotel, but decided to give Nina's property a stay instead since we were planning to stay a few nights. The decor is very cute, the bed is comfortable, and the amount of space was great. I loved being able to set up my laptop at the desk area to get some work done. Location was A+. I loved being able to walk across the street to farmers' market Saturday morning and having Zingerman's a stones throw away. Not a bad walk to anywhere! We ended up not using the kitchen other than the fridge for leftovers and beverages, but it seemed well stocked. Bathroom was a bit small and fiance had issues with fluctuating water temps during one of his showers, but as advertised it is an older home and these downfalls were offset by great charm. Property manager was very responsive when we had an issue with parking in the rear and our request to leave our bags later when our flight got delayed! Will definitely be back!
Thanks so much for the lovely review. This means a great deal to us knowing that our guests were happy with the Love Nest, the location and; that you were happy with our service.
We look forward to having you stay with us again!
Couldn’t ask for a better location!
Convenient and cozy apartment! We loved our stay and would definitely stay again.
Nina was very responsive and our whole experience from initial request to our departure could not have been easier!
