The SpaceThis loft is our getaway, and we would love to share it with you. We mix contemporary and antique art and furniture, provide high-end appliances--range, dishwasher, refrigerator, washer, dryer--and invite you to browse our dozens of art books! The space has 17-12' high ceilings, exposed brick, and intriguing remnants of past decor.
This is a true loft--one big room, 22 x 80, with one of the enclosed baths dividing the master bedroom with queen-sized bed from the rest. The living room doubles as the second bedroom, with a Design Within Reach "Twilight" sleeper sofa that easily converts into one or two XL twin beds. Aerobeds are provided on request for up to two children.
Also in the living room, a 40" flat-screen TV with limited cable, a DVD player and a small collection of titles, and access to Netflix and Amazon Prime.
The high-end kitchen is equipped for the serious cook and up to twelve diners. Breakfast basics, including your choice of machine drip, pour-over, or espresso coffee, are provided. We can stock the kitchen to order for an extra charge. Organic, gluten-free, vegan, no problem.
Downstairs is our art-music-space, 22 North. It's a family enterprise, housing our audio services business in the back and an art gallery in the front. The gallery shows emerging and established artists in our region--we've been told there's nothing like it in the area. Please let us know if you'd like to host an event here during your stay. Guest AccessThe whole apartment will be yours during your stay. The rest of the building is off-limits, but we would love to give you a complete tour if we are on site. Interaction with GuestsKeyless entry allows you to arrive on your own schedule. We may or may not be on site to check you in and out, but swift assistance is a phone call away should you need it. When we are on site we love to show our guests around the rest of our wonderful building and downtown Ypsilanti. The NeighborhoodDowntown Ypsilanti is an undiscovered treasure. Beautifully preserved historic architecture abounds, and a new entrepreneurial energy prevails. Chic coffee shops and boutiques, hip and classic restaurants and bars (and the nighttime activity you might expect) surround our loft. Behind the block is a lovely stretch of the Huron River and Riverside Park. Walk down elegant Huron and Cross Streets or through the park and across the pedestrian bridge to arrive at Depot Town. Getting AroundThe loft is two blocks from the AATA transit center. Clean quiet buses depart for all parts of Ann Arbor every 15 minutes during peak times. Transport to Detroit Metropolitan Airport is readily available.
Parking: Parking is easy though we don't have a dedicated space. Parking meters in front of the building operate M-F, 8-6. Parking is free after 6pm. Overnight parking is permitted. A city parking lot across Huron Street offers free parking, limited to 2 hours M-F, 8-6 but unlimited afterwards. Overnight parking is permitted.
DO NOT PARK IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE BUILDING. The entire area is monitored carefully and unauthorized cars can be towed with no warning and alarming speed.
However, just a minute's walk from these private lots, toward the river, there is unrestricted parking in Riverside Park. This is where we leave our cars when we won't be driving for several hours. This area is accessible from the alley behind the building, off of Michigan Ave. Other Things to NoteParking: Parking is easy though we don't have a dedicated space.
