About Nina Howard

My life is ruled by my 5 pound dog, Ling-Ling. I never knew a dog could have such power over me! When I am not playing with her, I am busy running the Guest Houses in Ann Arbor or in my art studio painting abstract art. Oh, did I mention the garden? I call North Carolina mountains my home but travel back and forth to Ann Arbor, enjoying my time in one of the 5 Ann Arbor Guest Houses. What a life!

Nina Howard purchased this house in 2012

Why Nina Howard chose Southeast Michigan

I lived in this property back in the 90's and mentioned a few years later, to the landlord, that it would make a great Ann Arbor Guest House. He offered it to me in the Spring of 2012 and I got busy pulling it together. It is a work in progress. I love staying here and remembering the 'good 'ol days' when I would dart in and out of my apartment enjoying the fun filled life of living right in the middle of town.

What makes this house unique

Everything is within a 5 block walk, U of M, Main Street, Kerrytown! Okay, walking to the Stadium takes a few more blocks to get there. Having a parking space in town is a big plus if you think you need a car. Teeming life on the streets on the other side of your front door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Nina,

We had an absolutely great time! Thank you for everything. You have created a wonderful space, we were so comfortable and truly enjoyed ourselves. We are already talking about coming again some time! :)

Thank you & Take Care,

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our trip back to Ann Arbor for the game this past weekend. It was a cozy and clean apartment which easily accommodated our party of 7 adults. Can't beat the location either!

Very comfortable for 5 people, close to almost everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in this Ann Arbor guest house. Lots of room to stretch out; great table for eating together and playing cards. Clean; comfortable beds and pillows; great shower and lots of towels, and places for hanging them! Well stocked kitchen appliances and utensils.

Parking more than 1 car was an issue (we had 2). Street work was noisy, but otherwise quiet in the neighborhood. Guesthouse within walking distance of EVERYTHING except a regular sized grocery store; had to use the car for that, but otherwise did not use the car!! We could even walk to the central campus of U of M and the Botanical Gardens.

We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Ann Arbor.

Camp

  • 5 of 5

My 13 year old son wanted to go to ID Tech for summer camp, but didn't want to do overnight. So, I rented this lovely little house for my two kids and myself. It was more then perfect. Other than having one bathroom we could have had 2-3 more people...............plenty of beds. Nina was very helpful and kind................and, we didn't even have any problems. I'm hoping that next year my son will want to do overnight camp at ID Tech, but if not I will definitely be renting this house again.

Thank you again for everything Nina.

This is a great location for walking to campus or Main Street venues.

  • 4 of 5

My brothers and I used this as a home base for walking to old college haunts and exploring what was new since our time at U of M as students. Plenty of room for the 4 of us with comfortable living room and inviting kitchen. Nina responded quickly to inquiries. I would stay here again in future trips. The original art throughout the apartment was an unexpected treat.
