Great check-in experience90% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This cottage like home is close to The Detroit River, Canals, Residential Islands, and Grosse Pointe. You’ll love this cozy home, filled with lots of natural light, and right next to a major bus line for easy access to downtown. The space is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

A quirky and comfortable house with great, friendly hosts. Very clean and comfy rooms and close to transport and downtown Detroit.

Jon was a great host, we had a good time staying in there. The neighborhood was nice. Would definitely recommend staying there for a true Detroit experience!

Pretty nice place, a bit out of the way. Cool decor and great value. Two things to be aware of: the only bathroom is shared between everyone in the house, which was around 4 people at times. The individual bedrooms don't have their own locks with separate keys-- one key opens the…

Response from Aragorn:
Hello Kit! I'm really sorry that you were distressed by the lock situation. The bedrooms actually do have locks that are keyed separately though! I went to a lock smith and had the room locks keyed differently, but they can all operate the main door locks for the house, like an apartment building. Of course Jon and Angelique have the master keys for the rooms in case of emergency, or in case a guest locks themselves out or loses a key.

Jon was an absolute pleasure to meet. Bedroom was clean enough. Bare basics. One bathroom for many travelers and / or roommates. People up all hours of the night/day but very quiet. Photos look great and they are true but home is dated and outside looks like it’s falling down. I…

Aragon had tons of recommendations and Jon was a great host! This house has really good vibes! The neighbourhood is a bit out of the way, in a quiet and well kept neighbourhood. I guess it is best by car but there is a bus running nearby. The room was clean and well worth the mon…
