About Tracy Ball
Dave and I have known each other since our senior year of high school. We spent senior weekend together camping with a group of friends and haven’t been apart much since. We've been married nearly 40 years, and most of them have been pretty darn good. Our daughter lives in Seattle; our son and his family just moved back here from Las Vegas. His family includes our first and only grandchild. We love being empty-nesters, and we also love traveling the country to see the kids (who have also resided in Chattanooga, Texas, New York and Virginia Beach.) I just got my own motorcycle so we can both ride together or alone. We are on our 9th Jeep! Guess you could say we are trying to enjoy life while we can. 'We have our health and family. Life is better than we deserve!'
Tracy Ball purchased this Bungalow in 2005
Why Tracy Ball chose Belleville
We have lived in the Belleville area nearly 30 years ... it has been an amazing place to raise our family and grow older together. It affords us the best of both worlds ... rural setting to be close to nature yet close enough to the city so that when we want to mix and mingle it up with people, we're just a short drive away. It has been a pure joy to hop on the bike (motor or pedal) and explore the surrounding area. Everything you might possibly want or need out of life is just around the corner from here.
What makes this Bungalow unique
This property was the perfect place where we could care for our aging parents. The house is a ranch design, and we were able to create separate living quarters for them out of the attached garage. Now that they no longer need it, we've decided to share this comfortable space with others. It's so important to have a nice, clean, secure location while away from home. Staying here is so much better than a cold and maybe clean hotel room or the awkwardness and perhaps inconvenience of staying with friends or relatives. We've used VRBO numerous times and always found it a great experience.

Quiet rural getaway close to town.
Great weekend stay. Nice and quiet, enjoyable hosts and clean, comfortable house. We enjoyed the trails, hot tub and the pool. Amos was a great host’s assistant too!
Perfect getaway !
We came all the way from MN for a concert. We have never been to Michigan and this property did NOT disappoint! We enjoyed the scenery sotting in the hot tub and played some basketball. Thank you for letting us stay! We enjoyed all the little touches you put on the property :)
kindness, peaceful and lovely
The location may seem a bit out of the way, but it is a short drive to many city locations. The site has a two steps one to the bathroom and one to the laundry room (which is on your way to the bath room). There is a pool and a hot tub. There was a large storm while we were there so we did not use either. We did walk the walking paths around the outside. The hosts were very kind as I have an autistic son and made sure to ask great questions about how to be good hosts.
The apartment was very clean and very dog friendly! We had a great time for our anniversary. The hot tub is a really nice perk!
We absolutely love it when guests mention our dog. We're sometimes more self-conscious than need be because he has so much energy. That's why we don't mind putting him up if he's a bother. But it's even better when guests love him as much as we do. Maybe you should spend every anniversary with us???
Quiet, peaceful, relaxing, welcoming host (including friendly pup), simple (everything you need is here), very comfortable.
Walking trails and hot tub are an added bonus.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! And you didn't mind our rambunctious Amos. Come again any time!
U of Michigan Graduation Family Celebration
My son was graduating and we had family coming from different places. Was so nice to have a home to gather at. We loved being able to cook in to save money. We used the hottub and firepit several times. Setting was very relaxing and we all had such a good time. The laundry was very convenient. Tracy and Dave were so welcoming and we had everything you could need. Looking forward to doing it again sometime. Leslie from Chehalis Washington.
So glad we could provide a comfortable gathering place for your family. It’s great when our guests take full advantage of all the amenities the property has to offer. We look forward to having you again!
Belleville is the perfect, unique location only 15 minutes from a big city. Savor the quiet, peaceful setting while enjoying a campfire and watching wildlife in their natural habitat. 5 minutes away is the quaint downtown area with enough to keep you busy for the evening, including restaurants, library and small-town stores.
At night you're only minutes away from some of the best nightlife in this area of the state.
15 minutes away is Canton: big box stores and franchises abound along with local treasures. You'll want to check out Sze-Chuan Restaurant and The Bowery Grille & Pub if you're hungry, and Canton is also home to an Ikea.
25 minutes away is Ann Arbor, home to the infamous University of Michigan. Ann Arbor is one of the coolest towns around and a designated Tree City. Their public transportation system is convenient and easy to use. You'll want to explore U of M's campus and the many interesting shops and restaurants that surround it. Hit up Main Street, REI and the Jamaican Jerkpit for starters.
35 minutes away is Detroit. Enjoy nationally-ranked sports teams and Belle Isle The Riverwalk is a MUST SEE if you have time - rent a Segway or a bike and spent hours riding along the waterfront trail and up the Dequindre Cut.
