2 Bedrooms | Sleeps 10
This one-of-a-kind Kottage is an artist's creation, inspired by the location itself and designed to optimize privacy and take full advantage of the views into surrounding woods. This 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, home is a first of its kind for KK, collaborating with local artists and friends, Ladislav & Jana Hanka, showcasing their work within Kara's signature style in this magically redesigned home.
The Location & Property
This location is on one of the highest elevations in the city, looking out over the Kalamazoo river valley and boasting skyline views in the winter and enfolding greenery through the summer. This secluded property surrounded by two acres of mature forest hosts significant migratory bird populations in season and resident wildlife year-round. Guests will appreciate this quiet gem, landscaped with various native fruits in season - waking up to birdsong and wildlife who roam the property.
This home can be enjoyed by guests who wish to rent the whole house or by the bedroom - with all other spaces shared.
NOTE: This house is not intended for parties and 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. 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 consent, a $200 cleaning fee will be applied.
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.
