The SpaceOur house is welcome to everyone. It is simple, clean, and quaint, full of small details that have been restored and maintained through the decades. Although this home is still a work in progress, it is a place that can be enjoyed for it's existing charms and quirky decor. There are two-bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed, and another bedroom with a full-sized futon that also functions as an office. Guests should know that a friendly cat named Fenkell also dwells here. Guest AccessGuests are welcome to use all parts of the house, with the exception of the basement (unless for laundry purposes). There is one bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a full bathroom on the second floor, a kitchen, a living room and dining room, a sun-room, and a small back garden to enjoy. Interaction with GuestsI will be available to assist guests with entry/exit, provide keys, as well as share information about the house alarm (if desired), using the kitchen, and any other explanations for this old house. I will be staying in the finished basement, and guests will have privacy of the rest of the house. I am also happy to provide information about the neighborhood, surrounding areas, and important and interesting places to visit throughout the city of Detroit. The NeighborhoodWhile many travelers visiting in Detroit may desire to stay closer to the center of the city, those who choose to stay on Outer Drive may gain a unique perspective into what a historic Detroit neighborhood is like. Grandmont-Rosedale is a vibrant and active community located on the NW side of Detroit, full of beautiful historic homes of all architectural styles. We are in close proximity to the Brightmoor and Old Redford neighborhoods, many locally-owned coffee shops, groceries, a theater, a bakery, parks, and small businesses. We feel quite safe in our home here, and have close relationships to our neighbors. It is a charming part of the city, with much to explore directly near this home. Getting AroundWhile there is a public bus system, it is notorious for being cumbersome and slow in transit. In the sunny seasons, Detroit is a wonderful season to navigate by bicycle, especially for those who enjoy long-distance rides into the heart of the city. Otherwise, the city is easy to navigate by car (nearly essential), as we are situated very close to Grand River and Five Mile roads, as well as Southfield and I-96 highways. Other Things to NoteOur neighbors are kind and friendly. Guests should note that there is a neighbor dog (in a fenced yard) that may greet you with barks as you come and go.
