Our secluded lodge-style home is nestled half mile down a private lane, just 2 miles off I-94, Exit 169, and 10 minutes drive to either downtown Ann Arbor or downtown Dexter.
Come view the deer, ducks and wrens play while enjoying your morning coffee. Sit by the fireplace on chilly nights. Lay in the front porch hammock on a warm afternoon. Enjoy the silence!
We have a welcoming, warm home with many windows to enjoy the view of the green outdoors. We are pet-friendly with a puppy named Luna and an older cat named Ivy.
The hot tub has a view of the pond and the woods. The kitchen is spacious with all necessary equipment, and recently remodeled with zinc countertops and cherry cabinets.
This is our home and we do live here while guests stay with us. The bedroom(s) are private so guests have their personal space.
Get away from the hustle and bustle; you can't see our neighbors, we're surrounded by nature, and 10 minutes to Ann Arbor, 10 minutes to downtown Dexter, and 3 minutes to groceries, pharmacy and nearby amenities!

We are long time Ann Arbor / Dexter residents. Julie, the primary host, is an alumnae and has recently retired from the University of Michigan after 30+ years. Happy to share my UM knowledge and provide personalized tours of campus and town for a separate fee. Also, happy to recommend area restaurants and other local information as needed!
Sherri, my spouse, is an EMU alumnae and is locally employed as a Professional Project Manager (PMP). Our daughter is at Skidmore College in Upstate New York. She is fluent in French. Our son attends Albion College nearby in Michigan. The college students are in and out, depending on vacations, school breaks and summer. We have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Blenheim, puppy who is growing fast.
I do catering for small gatherings under 25 guests, and if you are a guest here, we can discuss your business or social hosting needs, in advance of your arrival. I also am an artisan bread baker, and teach interested participants how to bake bread using the Tartine Bakery/Chad Robertson method.
We love to travel and have been to Russia (Soviet Union), Poland, Belarus, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, Ireland, Great Britain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Finland, China and Hong Kong. We welcome international guests!
