Newly remodeled, two-story attached apartment with private entrance and ~1,000 sq ft of space. Sauna. Two Queen beds with top quality mattresses and bedding. Plenty of parking. Cap at 4 adults, but beds for kids available on request. Walking: 5 min to Tech Trails, 15 min to MTU/downtown. Internet TV only.

Overall, it's very quiet, but we have two young children, and you will likely hear them between 7 am and 8 pm.

Feel free to ask questions or make requests!

The space
The apartment is a sectioned off part of a larger house, separated by interior doors on both floors. You do not share any space with us. We have two young children, and you will likely hear them between 7 am and 8 pm.

You park outside and enter via private entrance on the ground floor. There is room outside for bikes and other outdoor gear. Can park 2 cars + a trailer if needed (please let us know in advance if you are towing toys). On the ground floor, there is a large family room with a tv monitor hooked up to air-play for streaming with your Apple product (but no cable or satellite), comfy chairs, and plenty of space for your boots, coats, and other gear. To get downstairs, you will need to use the spiral staircase. On the lower level, you'll find another big common space with a large kitchenette, dining table, a queen Murphy bed, and a couch. There is also a large bedroom and a bathroom with a sauna. We remodeled the entire space starting in the fall of 2019. Brand new top quality mattresses and bedding.

Kitchen has: full sized fridge, microwave, a large toaster oven (can fit a pizza) drip coffee maker, plenty of dishes, sharp knives, cutting boards, and more. We'll provide basic oils, spices, tea and local coffee from Catch & Release Coffee Co (amazing stuff).

Easy access to almost everything from tech trails to snowmobile trails to downtown and MTU.

Where you’ll be

Houghton, Michigan, United States

Sitting on the top of the hill, this neighborhood is one of the few flat places in Houghton. It is very quiet and walkable. Most of the houses have an acre of land, so it's really wooded and relaxed. We regularly bike, walk, or run to the tech trails. Even our 5 year old can bike there. We also walk to downtown and to the Michigan Tech campus(takes 15 minutes), but it's definitely a big hill coming back up.

Our family moved to Houghton, MI in the summer of 2019. We are so very excited to be here for the embarrassment of natural riches that is the UP, and the quirky, vibrant city that is Houghton. We bought a house that has extra space, and we remodeled it to host folks who want to come and explore the area or visit friends and family here. I hope you join us!
