The 1 room studio is on the 2nd floor of a 2 story multi unit home. Consists of a room containing the sleeping/living area, which includes a microwave, fridge, and tableware. The room has exclusive use of an attached full bath. There is no kitchen included or accessible.
The setup is similar to a hotel room, in that you enter the house via the common entryway - also used by my tenant, and go up the stairs to the studio, which is off the 2nd floor landing. There are two other apartments in the house - one occupied by my tenant, the other by me. The studio space is one of 3 units in the house, and is therefore separate and inaccessible from the 2 other units. Guests will have access to the studio and common areas of the house, which consist of the entryway, washer & dryer in basement, back deck (until 10 PM), and front porch.
The room has a queen size sleep number bed that allows firmness on each side to be independently adjusted. If you've never slept on one, you are missing out!

- queen size sleep number bed (either half of the bed has adjustable firmness)

The house is an 1892 American Craftsman style home, that was reborn following a tragic fire in 1994 that destroyed two-thirds of the home. Rebuilt over a two year period, by two craftsmen, who meticulously matched new woodwork to old, and crafted new crown moldings and ornate leaf designs, restoring it to its former glory.
The house is located on a bustling (during peak travel times) 2-lane avenue, which the room overlooks. There are storm windows with screens on all windows in the room and bathroom, which helps to reduce traffic noise.
Heritage Hill is a National, State, and Local Historic District in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is one of the largest urban historic districts in the country. The district contains over 1,000 houses dating back to the19th and early 20th century, representing nearly every style of architecture. The original occupants were lumber barons, teachers, judges, and legislators, who shaped the city’s future. Today it is home to a diverse population of 4,000 households. Bordered by Crescent Street (north), Union Avenue (east), Pleasant Street (south), and Lafayette Street (west), it covers an area of about 3,500 acres. Heritage Hill was designated by the American Planning Association as one of 2012’s Great Places in America.
It is a 5 minute walk to the downtown area, which hosts a diverse collection of dining establishments, bars, entertainment venues, medical institutions, universities, and retail outlets. You may want to find a spot on a bench in Rosa Parks Circle, and take in a free outdoor concert in the summer - or ice skate in the winter. Perhaps you’d like to take a stroll along the river. If you like breweries, there are numerous to choose from. These are a few of the many activities this lovely city has to offer!
