We have a house with a basement room and hallway to private bath willing to share w/ short-term guests. Basement has air hockey table and bar which we'll belly up to with you if we're around. 15 minutes from Grand Rapids and 1 mile away from big mall and variety of restaurants.

The space

Can close yourself in to private section of the basement or socialize in the entertainment area. Right between M6 and 196 highways. We are a busy family so not always here to greet guests when they arrive, but we make sure you have access to your room whenever you get here. If you're booking as two people and use two beds, it is an additional $10, payable to host directly.

Guest access

Private bed and bathroom with Queen and bunk beds (which are not ideally suited/built for 2 adults, but top mattress can be placed on floor), sauna room, basketball hoop, paddle boat, kayak, and often craft beer on tap.

Interaction with guests

Nice to spend at least a few minutes getting better acquainted, but if you're just looking to be alone, that's not a problem and we understand. We are used to hosting a variety of guests and pretty much roll with whatever preferences you have.

Other things to note

We have a cleaning lady working every other Friday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. If you're gone and she can clean your floors and the bathroom, that'd be great. If not, she can avoid the rooms. Either way, please note that the central vacuum is located right next to the bedroom and is loud. Also, I (Tim) have my office desk outside the bedroom door in the hallway connecting room to bathroom.

The house is very nice and comfortable; lots of space in the basement overall, and the bedroom is comfortable. It’s also a little set off from the main basement space, so it felt private. Very friendly family too! We didn’t see much of each other, but they were very welcoming and warm.

Very easily accessible. With clean and tidy accommodations. Hosts were helpful when needed and communication was good through the process.

The listing is complete accurate and honest. Tim is easy to communicate with and very accommodating! You may hear some life happening upstairs, but again Tim was upfront so I was aware. I would definitely stay here again!

I had a very brief , but amazing stay with Tim and his family! Everyone was so welcoming and made me feel at home. Plenty of space for relaxing - comfortable bed and a private bath including an attached sauna! Would definitely stay here again. Bob

We had a wonderful time (albeit a little short). Thanks to Tim (and family) for being such a great host and sharing their beautiful house.

Tim and his family were out of town when we stayed here, but we still felt very welcomed! He was easy to reach if we had any questions. The place was just as described and the craft beer on tap was a nice plus! The outdoor area out back was lovely. Some of the neighbors were setting off fireworks for the holiday weekend so we enjoyed sitting outside and watching them. Overall a great place to stay and in a great location- highly recommend staying here if you have the chance!

We are laid-back hosts who have enjoyed sharing our home with exchange students, foster kids, family, friends, and BnB guests. Some things we enjoy include family, social justice, sports, craft beer, and good whisky. I am not a fan of the current trend to continually monitor a smart phone so I don't own one. The downside of that is not seeing your lodging request until I check my email. I apologize for any delays. I'll make it up to you by pouring a beer should I have something on tap (which is most of the time). You should also know that as guests in the basement, you'll hear us living above you at times. Cheers.
