Private room for rent in Detroit's historic University District neighborhood--just a block from University of Detroit Mercy campus and Gesu Catholic Church and School. Walk the surrounding blocks of a beautiful, old city neighborhood and bike to nearby Palmer Park, Detroit Golf Club and Livernois' Avenue of Fashion.

This is my home and studio so I am often inhabiting the space but am usually occupied with work and will leave guests their privacy. I have a well-behaved dog named Louise.

The space
The guest room has the best natural light in the house and is equipped with a full-size bed, a desk and closet. I have high-speed wifi that is very reliable. You're also welcome to cook in the kitchen and use the TV/media center in the living room. In fairer weather, the backyard and garden is a great area to relax in the afternoon.
