Your entrance is the back door to the house. You access it from the backyard. It opens into the kitchen and the door to the basement apartment.
The backyard is very large and long and filled with low maintenance perennials, mostly Hostas. There is an outdoor playhouse with seating...the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine when it is raining. Totally sealed, no bugs. New Hatteras hammock for two in backyard.
You have a private entrance at the back of the house. Front entrance is available if you choose.
The house is located on the east side of Lansing within minutes of the highways Interstates 127 and 96. It is a great walking neighborhood. It is a 45 minute walk either to downtown Lansing or East Lansing. We have a farmer's market in walking distance.
Close to north west side of MSU campus. The campus is over 2,000 developed acres with over 500 buildings, over 50,000 students Three blocks from the major bus line. If you're a runner or want a nice walk, the Lansing River Trail, a 10+ mile trail system, is close by.
There is a top notch restaurant within walking distance (see guidebook), The Soup Spoon. Locally-roasted coffee beans and real local maple syrup with your pancakes.
I love my home. It is my sanctuary where I feel peace and serenity and look forward to sharing it with you, trusting you will feel the same.
Love to have multi-month guests, but one night stays are welcome, especially when they involve repeated one night stays.
Michigan Flyer bus transports guests from Detroit Metro to Lansing.
No smokers, no smoking in house or on property. Sorry, no dogs or cats.
A tall guest asked me to add that the main area is 6' 4" and the kitchen area is 6' 9"; there is a narrow area that is 6' 1" high.
Uber and Lyft are available.

Thanks.

The only way to have a friend is to be one.” Meeting new friends is magic. People describe me as playful, energetic and passionate. I’m an artist with memories of what it feels like to be with people. I love the outdoors, the smell of rain and pine forests. I love good conversation, good wine and a good book. Beginnings are intoxicating…..saying hello, first hug, walks in the morning. I like people who are calmer than me. I like people who enjoy my hunger to explore, to be silly, and to soar. You know who you are. You respect people. It is your quiet truth. I believe that we are all citizens of the earth and neighbors. Share my home. Only have a land line, so please don't text your arrival, email and phone works great. PS. I’m Jewish on my parent’s side.
