About Owner/ Manager

Overwhelmed with a sense of fairness toward others, and extremely non-judgemental, I'm looking to provide high quality, low cost, short term housing to corporate business persons, professional artists, and adult college students. I have lived in this neighborhood since 1984, therefore , the decision to begin to refurbish foreclosed and abandoned homes where I stay was a "no brainer." My hobbies are cutting grass, picking up paper and tutoring Algebra. Rental money received goes right back into refurbishing other homes on my street, and buying academic supplies for tutoring. When you arrive please check out Buddy's Pizza, Detroit Symphony Orchestra's Jazz Series, Greek Town, and Somerset Mall.....Lord Have Mercy!... Somerset Mall will make you spend your children's and your grandchildren's inheritances. I don't want to live without clean sheets, my snow blower and lawnmower, and an excellent movie and book. I don't want to live anywhere else.

Owner/ Manager purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Owner/ Manager chose Detroit

This property #4066196 was vacant for several years. It is a solid brick, well built home in need of tender loving care . I and my boys were just the ones to deliver. We've painted, felled many overgrown trees, installed a new furnace, water system, new roof and we're still not done….. in the spring we plan to paint again, make our hard wood floors shine like glass, and update the windows. After that… we're just getting started…..

What makes this bungalow unique

My family and I fell in love with property #4066196 because it is solid brick from top to bottom. No brick facades. The floors are solid oak, and the walls are plaster, not dry wall. Homes of this quality aren't built any longer. The location of the home is on a Boulevard which is one mile from a main thoroughfare in the city of Detroit. 75% of my neighbors own their homes, and work diligently to beautify their homes each spring. I don't want to live anywhere else.

Best Stays in Detroit!!

  • 5 of 5

Lynn's Beautiful Bedrooms in a Bungalow is the ONLY place I stay in Detroit. I've stayed there twice, and my second stay was even more comfortable than the first. Lynn is thoughtful and very responsive to my needs when I am there, and although she is professional and knows the value of privacy for guests, I have been able to persuade her to sit down and share some great conversation and snacks with me. Lynn has everything I need and want for my stays away from home: peace, quiet, my own space to retreat to, a bathroom with full shower and tub, tv, camera surveillance, ceiling fans to keep me cool, a small fridge and a COFFEE MAKER (I take my coffee very seriously). I have been

lucky enough to have the entire home to myself when I have stayed there, but even if others were there I would still have plenty of space to

relax and rejuvenate. Lynn's Beautiful Bedrooms in a Bungalow is on a lovely Detroit street with the kind of homes we do not find in California. Nice wide sidewalks begging to be strolled on, lush green trees and lawns, a quiet neighborhood both day and night, and friendly people. What I love most about Beautiful Bedrooms in a Bungalow is the proximity to my vacation destination. My experiences could not have been better. Lynn needs to keep doing what she is doing. I will be back the next time I am in Detroit!!

Owner's Response: Dionne is the type of guest ALL property owners/managers dream about. She is super clean, and very self-sufficient. Each time Dionne stayed at 3BBB felt like a cherished family member coming home.

3 Beautiful Bedrooms in a Bungalow is located one mile east of a major thoroughfare in the City of Detroit. This home is located in one of the nicest neighborhoods, on one of the best streets. You are literally 15 minutes away from the ENTIRE Detroit experience. Traveling south 6 miles will take you to Downtown Detroit. North takes you to the suburbs. Traveling east will take you to Midtown, Detroit Institute of Arts, and the best family owned restaurants, local night clubs/bars, and the Pearl of Detroit: our own Belle Isle. Utterly beautiful!!! And….west will take you to the lush grounds of the 18 hole Detroit Golf Course/Tennis Courts, or the longest running (59 years) live venue: Detroit Repertory Theatre located on Woodrow Wilson Avenue. Whatever you seek, you're sure to find your heart's desire.

This home is one of several in a consortium of homes which provides short term (less than 6 months) temporary housing to professionals vacationing or living in the Detroit area for business purposes. There is a 24 hour Concierge on duty who is happy to assist you with scheduling and/or transportation needs.

We are known as the "Creation" and we hope to see you soon.
