Farm table with mixed chairs = fun. The style of each chair/stool keeps within the same "family" yet each one is unique. That's not easy to do. Also loving the ladder and everytime I see a big old one it makes me want to take it home. My son would easily make me regret that decision in a minimal amount of time.
Slows, one of the city's busiest restaurants (full disclosure: owned by my brother-in-law), and on the same block as an artisan coffee shop and craft cocktail bar, the apartment drops you smack into the middle of one of the most thriving, interesting blocks in the city. But the entire neighborhood - the oldest one in Detroit - is charming, walkable and full of great restaurants, bars and historic attractions, including the workers row houses, the site of old Tigers Stadium and Michigan Central Station - the old, abandoned (much photographed) train station designed by the same architects as New York's Grand Central. The last train left the station in 1988, and although scrappers have ripped out most of the marble (and whatever else was left), it's still a stunningly beautiful Beaux-Arts behemoth. Out front, Roosevelt Park is undergoing a multi-phased revamp and there's a roster of community, arts and music events all summer long. Corktown is also a 10-minute walk from downtown Detroit.
Guests have access to the entire apartment. There are two bedrooms for a capacity of four people, with additional sleeping arrangements for kids.
One bedroom: $165/night
Both bedrooms: $215/night
Week stay, entire apartment: $1000

There is no television but the bar at the restaurant downstairs has several screens. I can imagine painting or reading a book instead anyway...then hitting Slows for a drink and some goooood food! Tweet
