Area Info

Our neighborhood, Ann Arbor’s historic Old West Side, offers wonderful walking through tree-lined streets filled with historic, turn-of-the-century homes.

We are WALKING DISTANCE TO EVERYTHING!

Head just 3 blocks east and you’ll arrive on Main Street at the heart of downtown Ann Arbor, home to plenty of restaurants, shops, bars and entertainment venues. Every summer, during the 3rd week of July, Ann Arbor hosts one of the country’s best Art Fairs.

Several blocks further east (within easy walking distance) is the University of Michigan‘s main campus where you’ll find various cultural events at venues such as the university’s Museum of Arts, the Power Center for the Performing Arts and Hill Auditorium.

Within walking distance to the southeast is the University of Michigan’s football stadium and entire athletic campus, home to football, hockey, basketball and other sporting events throughout the year.
