Located in the center of the historic Mott Park Neighborhood is the iconic home designed by Norbert Daugherty, who was hired by General Motors to develop the neighborhood, for his family to live in. The original 1928 loft above the garage is available for you!

The space

This is a historic home in the center of an iconic neighborhood, bordered by a park with tennis courts on one side and the former Mott Park Golf Course on the other. The golf course is now a large green space for walking, running, or relaxing by the river.

Guest access

In the summertime, guests may want to bring tennis raquets, bikes, or other outdoor activities. In the winter, cross country skiing on the golf course is always a unique opportunity. There is also ice skating available in downtown Flint.

Interaction with guests

Since the space is separate from our house, I don't typically interact much with guests in person, but I am happy to show you around or answer questions if you like! I try to at least greet our guests whenever I can, and if we both have time I wouldn't mind sharing a cup of coffee.

Other things to note

You may or may not have heard about the water situation in Flint. Feel free to do an internet search and you will find plenty of articles.

We had our water tested and it showed no trace of lead. However, we are still drinking bottled water and will provide it to our guests for the time being.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

I stayed at Chad's place for 2 days with a friend. We both really enjoyed the stay. Chad was completely dedicated to make our stay as comfortable as possible from the beginning to the end. The accommodation was clean and cozy. We had everything we needed. I could easily see why Chad has had so many amazing reviews. He was a perfect host. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Flint!

This place is so quaint and beautiful! Such a great place to stay! We loved the area and especially being able to visit “Christmas town”, although we would love to come back and stay a lot longer to see more of the area! And Chad is an awesome host! Thanks. :)

Chad's place is in a lovely historic neighborhood near downtown and Kettering university. The space is clean and well appointed. Located above the detached garage. Special touches include shampoo, body wash and lotion in the bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a wonderful specialty coffee. The book chronicalling the neighborhoods history is fascinating. We will definitely stay at Chad's place again and would recommend his place to anyone looking for a real lodging value while staying in Flint.

The place is super-cute, with lots of windows and nice touches to make it welcoming and functional. It was immaculate. Chad was super responsive with communication and helped us out with forgotten toiletries - much appreciate the extra help. The photos are accurate and the location was close to the Hurley Medical center where our friend is. Good value! The Costa Rican coffee was AMAZING!

My wife and I love traveling, but with three young children we mostly have been helping other people travel these days, which we also enjoy. We like to go for walks, try out new restaurants, watch movies, and watch our kids explore the world.

We try to be available to our guests as much as possible, but also respect their time and space. We don't assume that our guests came to see us! But we do enjoy meeting people and making friends from around the world. You are welcome here!
