Our Redwood Kottage is located on the 1st floor of our Kalamazoo Avenue location in the heart of the historic Stuart Neighborhood, 1/2 mile away from the downtown district and sleeps 3 guests.

The space
This lovely Kottage offers a modern and spacious, eat-in kitchen and an equally spacious living room. Comfortable furnishings include a sectional sofa, electric fireplace console, 48" television and many more comforts. This space offers 1 bedroom that includes a luscious, Restoration Hardware-style queen bed along with an XL twin daybed, great for lounging or for additional sleeping. A roll-out twin bed is also available upon request. Also included in this Kottage is a charming bathroom with an original and newly restored claw foot bathtub & shower combo and stocked with many "just in case" toiletries for guests comfort.

Guest access
This kottage has its own, private covered porch right outside the entrance which includes comfy furnishings, soft lighting, a ceiling fan and gas grill.

Other things to note
Due to COVID-19 we are taking extra measures and making alterations to make each space as safe as possible for our guests. Here are few concessions to date:
We are, temporarily suspending food offerings with the exception of Condiments, Coffee, Teas, Single Serving Coffee Creamer, Sweeteners, Pancake and Waffle Mix, Oatmeal Packets and Pantry Staples for cooking. No Mini-Bar.
We are using disinfectant cleaning products as well and wiping down frequently touched items such as door handles and knobs, light switches, key pads, remotes, etc. and using bleach in laundering.
In the interest of being "extended stay" friendly / ready, we are making minor adjustments that include pairing down on toiletries and paper products in each unit. There will be only enough to accommodate each short stay.
Also, depending on how COVID-19 plays out, we may propose to move an existing reservation to accommodate the needs of our extended stay guests. If this happens (and we have a very large inventory to choose from), we will reach out to those guests to propose a move that is a good fit for their group/occasion.
Thanks in advance for your understanding and patients as we navigate the landscape of this pandemic.

Check-in is 3pm (self check-in w/ instructions)
Check-out is 11am

Flexibility within these times is an option with a fee of $40 outside of the check-in and check-out times. Guests are required to have prior authorization, but in the event that this doesn't occur, the fee will be applied regardless.

Pets are welcome in the unit (maximum 2) for a fee of $20/pet/night. Guests looking to take advantage of this need to inform us of this detail in the message center, so that we may request an additional payment.

Two-night minimum stay applies to reservations that include a Friday or Saturday. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis. If a one-night stay is granted, there will be a $50 fee applied to the reservation. Please call for assistance.

NOTE: This house should be used in the exact same capacity as a hotel. If a party is desired, you may call me in advance and we can have a conversation about it beforehand. Otherwise, parties are prohibited. If an event is approved, there will be an additional cost, which will be 20% of the total cost of the reservation. If it is determined that a party has taken place without my previous consent, a $200 cleaning fee will be applied.

Kara is a Michigan native with an appreciation for nature, a passion for good design and a love for historic homes. She moved to Kalamazoo from the shores of Lake Michigan in 1990 to attend college. She remained in Kalamazoo because of it's youthful energy, amazing people and an up and coming direction which has since been realized. When she's not combing the earth for treasures to use in her kottages and working on DIY projects, she's often found doing yoga, cross country skiing, biking, kayaking and traveling.
