The Michigan city of Detroit has seen a physical and emotional transformation in recent years and is now joining the ranks of the best U.S cities to visit.

And I for one am super happy for them and can’t wait to get there!

The space was very meticulously decorated with antiques that likely came from Detroit’s golden age which instilled a greater appreciation for the history of Detroit between myself and the other 2 people in my party. The old factory mailboxes being utilized as shelves for small items and the old clawfooted tub are just a couple of examples of some of the cool relics Bozenka has collected and furnished her crib with. The house has loads of space to spread out as well as some outdoor seating to hangout if you’re visiting at an appropriate time of the year. Bozenka was also a great host and responded almost immediately whenever we had any questions. Would absolutely try to book this spot again if we ever visited again.” – Eric
