Attic: large carpeted space with newly installed attic fan for cooling purposes. We use some of it for storage space. Not currently fit for large-scale use... we're working on it.
Backyard: Large lawn space to play and party!

Guest access
No attic and no balcony off of kids' bedroom (both of these currently need work). Ok to open door to these spaces for ventilation, but please do not enter those spaces. There is also one closet in the Master Bedroom that will stay locked during your stay. This is just to keep our stuff that you won't need out of your way.

Other things to note
Pets are negotiable. We'd like to know a bit about your pet before we agree to you bringing him or her. We like animals, but just want to make sure you'll be able to keep the house clean and undamaged.

This is an older house, and we have only been in it for a year. There have been a number of things to take care of, and we've had to prioritize, so there may be a few quirks here and there which don't meet your standards of a perfect, newly constructed house. Most of our guests, however, seem to find the house to be comfortable, spacious, beautiful, safe, and fun! Let us know if we can do anything to make your stay even better.

Detroit, Michigan, United States

This is a terrific neighborhood. It is quiet, peaceful, with gorgeous homes all around - great for a Sunday stroll. Neighbors are friendly and look out for each other. It is patrolled by a private security force who is extremely attentive and reliable. It is located just off of 7 Mile, near the other main drags of Livernois, Woodward, and 8 Mile.

Close to Meijer (megastore with groceries, clothes, household needs, pharmacy, etc.), major roadways, downtown and midtown, Ferndale (restaurants, bars, gyms, etc.), and Royal Oak (Trader Joe's, Westborn Market, etc.). For food shopping, you should also check out Eastern Market downtown, especially on Saturdays.
