"Everything about this place was amazing! Jen and Alex are two of the best hosts I've ever had, the apartment is beautifully decorated, and the location in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor is perfect (and unbelievably quiet). Highly recommended!" --Zoe *****"Jen and Alex are the best of Airbnb hosts. Their beautiful apartment was right in the center of Main Street, with all the food, drinks and Ann Arbor shopping just steps away. " --Benjamin *****

About this listing

Our historic loft is in the heart of Ann Arbor's charming downtown, steps away from restaurants, nightlife, and shopping, and a 12 minute walk to campus. It features exposed brick, 12 ft ceilings, and large windows facing Main St.

The space

Our loft is perfect for any event in downtown Ann Arbor. The Art Fair is literally outside your door. The University and the Stadium are both only a 10 minute walk.

Our guest room comfortably fits two. The room is cozy and spacious with plenty of room to move around. Please be aware that this room does not have an exterior window but does have a transom that lets in some natural light from the hallway. You will, however, have full access to the kitchen and living room with a wall of windows opening to Main st.

This is one of two listings for our loft. The bathroom is shared if we are hosting another Airbnb guest. If not, you have the bathroom to yourself! If this room is booked, our other room is listed here:

I loved staying at Jen's place. It's SUCH a perfect location! The room was comfortable, and the living room/kitchen area was gorgeous. A perfect Ann Arbor escape!

I had a fantastic stay at Jen's apartment! The space is beautifully decorated and Jen and her husband were welcoming hosts. They provided a list of restaurants and things to do around town, which was great since it was my first time in Ann Arbor. Jen was also flexible with my check-in time and allowed me to store my bag in the apartment since my flight arrived early in the morning. There were also lots of thoughtful touches around the home (e.g., a mini fridge stocked with water and snacks and fresh flowers around the apartment). The location is very central to tons of shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place!

Jen and Alex were great hosts! We were in and out a lot as we were in town for a friend's wedding, but they allowed us to check in early and keep pretty crazy hours!

Jen was a great host, great communication and easy check in/out. Her place is quite literally in the heart of the city. It's the best place to experience what the city had to offer. The mini fridge and snacks in the room was also a nice touch.

We stayed with Jen & Alex in AA during the weekend of the art fair. The apartment is amazing: great location, spacious, clean, comfortable, well equipped. It felt like a 5 star hotel stay! Great attention to detail, very good communication and guidance. Highly recommended!

This is a lovely loft apartment right in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. There's a Starbucks right around the corner for morning coffee; several of the best restaurants in town are very close by (e.g., Pacific Rim, Adventura). The U-M campus is about six blocks away, very walkable. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable, and we really enjoyed hanging out in the beautiful living room to plan out our days and relax a bit between activities! The hosts were absent during our stay, though we did meet Jen very briefly. She's super nice and accommodating. We wanted to leave our packed luggage in until the late afternoon of our check out day, and that was no problem. Highly recommend!
