This is a very comfortable upscale home on the Grand River, 20 minutes from the airport, downtown Lansing, and Michigan State University. The guest area is the entire lower level which features a complete kitchen and walkout to a deck overlooking the river. It's a great place to relax and watch the river flow by and enjoy a very quiet environment near Lansing and MSU.


This is a very comfortable, playful space on the Grand River, with art throughout the house, a grand piano (for those who play), a home theater area, and a full second kitchen available in the rental area. There are actually two bedrooms available for multiple singles or couples who may wish to convene here. I would ask for an additional $50 for persons using both bedrooms, but AirBnB requires me to separate list the second room, which I don't want to do as to avoid having two sets of guests who don't know each other in the house. I do not book guests into the separate rooms who are not a part of the same booking.

Dostupno gostima

The rental area is the lower level of the house with walkouts to the yard, gardens, and river. Guests have access to most of the house: laundry; kayaks; bikes; full kitchen in the lower level rental area or anything in the main kitchen that anyone might need. I cook and entertain a lot, so there is a wide variety of cooking pots/pans and utensils options available.

Interakcija s gostima

I'm as interactive as guests like to be. Privacy is totally respected. If schedules coincide, I'm typically good to cook something. On warmer days, I enjoy grilling and have dinner on an outside deck overlooking the river. Guests are free to join me. If people are around during evening hours, chances are that a bottle of wine will be uncorked and shared. Summer: If you've not kayaked before, I'm happy to show you how. This is a very easy stretch of the river to navigate.

Ostale napomene

This is not a rental of the full house; I'll be here most of the time, but in summer months, I'll generally be outside. Also, owing to the amount of artwork and electronics in the house, this is likely not the ideal place for people with very young children.

I may occasionally have a small dog (Silky Terrier) here. If you have a small dog you would like to bring, just check with me. Sorry not to be able to accommodate large dogs or cats. No smoking of any type. A sense of humor and good puns are always appreciated.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while in town to watch an MSU football game. Beautiful location and very comfortable home. We highly recommend Doug's place.

Every time I stay in an airBnB, I think I can't top this one. But once again, I am proved wrong and keep finding amazing gems! This place is amazing! Beautiful house, beautiful guest quarters with private and spacious bath and living area, all amenities, extremely gracious and accommodating host. My husband and I seriously did not want to leave. Gorgeous, on the river- my husband went fly fishing and ecstatically told me he caught lots of fish!! Really a gem! Close to Lansing, MSU, but a nice retreat from busy city living. Thanks Doug! I hope to stay here again soon and often!

Staying with Doug was quite an unforgettable experience. He was extremely communicative from the minute I requested to book his Airbnb and continued that high level of communication until the moment of our departure. Our stay was magical, to say the least. We immediately felt welcomed into his home with his kind spirit and attention to detail. I would highly recommend staying with Doug on your next trip to the Lansing/Dimondale area for a scenic and peaceful stay with a host that will go out of his way ensure that you enjoy every minute of your adventure.

Doug is an outstanding host. He was very prompt in his email communication with us and was flexible about check in check out times. He was home to greet us and show us around upon our arrival. Doug has a large, lovely home located in an upscale neighborhood. Doug went above and beyond with regard to amenities. He provided a full bottle of juice, milk and a full bag of coffee. He was so thoughtful – he even put a planetarium in the room for my husband’s use as an amateur astronomer. The apartment is large and lovely. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with all appliance and dishes you could hope for. The bedroom is huge with a king size bed and full bath (with extra supplies such as toothbrush, Band-Aids and the like). Doug has a large garage and permitted us to park in of the stalls. Doug;s home is in a peaceful location situated right on the Grand River. Doug was kind enough to include us in his dinner plans on Friday and prepared a delicious home cooked meal with home baked bread. He was a gracious conversationalist and a generous host. Doug made us feel more like old friends than an AirBnB lodger. The visit exceeded our expectations in every way and we look forward to a return visit.

Doug is an amazing host. He gave me a tour of his place when I arrived. He offered snacks and beverages throughout my stay. We had many wonderful conversations. It was like being on an extended vacation. I highly recommend staying with Doug.

We stayed in Doug's lovely, spacious and well equipped guest suite with great river views from the large living area and bedrooms for 11 days. Everything was as represented in the photos and description and our actual experience exceeded our already high expectations. In addition to a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, walk in closet, quiet surroundings and abundant amenities, the gallery quality art on display and high end AV system were amazing enhancements. The home is in a small high end riverfront neighborhood that's quiet but has easy access to the surrounding area. Best of all was Doug himself. He is a kind and thoughtful host who enjoys people and does what it takes to make them feel welcome and comfortable. And he is an amazing cook! For us, staying at Doug's was unequivocally a five star experience. If you're considering a visit to the Lansing/MSU area, we give Doug's place our highest recommendation.

Staying at Doug's retreat on the Grand River was without any doubt my best Airbnb experience so far. Doug is a courteous host and a charming entertainer, and he welcomed us with all comforts and amazing dinners. While we usually keep to ourselves during our trips, it was a pleasure to share the table with Doug. He is a refined cook and his taste and sensitivity reflect in all the house. The guest apartments are just as lovely as they appear in the photographs, and the bedroom receives beautiful afternoon light from a glass door that opens on the back yard and on the river. We felt at home since the moment we arrived, and we cannot thank Doug enough for such a perfect weekend.

In the photo, I'm the guy with the hat only a tourist would wear visiting Borobudur Temple in Java last year. Anyway, when living closer to the Michigan State University campus years ago, I rented out rooms to international grad students and enjoyed their stories, cultural introductions, and cooking, to name a few things. I've travelled a fair bit since then and have always enjoyed meeting people and sharing life stories and interests.

I seem to have more interests than time permits exploring these days, but music composition, cooking, gardening, kayaking, and yoga are current priorities. As is meeting people and learning what's important and interesting (and funny) to them.

I'm professionally employed with a fairly flexible schedule to meet people at the house, and can always find common interests with people.
