    This apartment was perfect for my husband and I while we were in town for a wedding. The location couldn't have been better and the apartment itself was clean and had everything we needed for a long weekend. We loved getting coffee every morning at the coffee shop on the corner. We would definitely stay again.

    This loft is absolutely adorable and located in the perfect spot to explore downtown Alpena. We have no complaints about this little gem and our host, Mary Jane was pleasant and communicative. Will definitely look to stay here again on our next trip to the area!

  • Nice convenient place in heart of downtown.


    Great place to stay - very nice apartment, clean, good linens. Owner is fabulous- very helpful! Only downside is the extra nearly $300 in fees that are added on, beyond the cleaning charges, as “additional charges.”

  • Great convenient apartment


    Apartment is lovely - nicely appointed with good linens. Separate bedroom. Thoughtful items include: terrific book selection, games, writing pad, refrigerated cold water, nice dishes/glasses/mugs, plenty of dishes/utensils luggage rack, plenty of towels. Very convenient to terrific coffee and several really good restaurants. It is a bit noisy as people leave restaurant on Saturday night but they moved on quickly to their cars so not too disruptive (and not very late - 11 pm or so). MaryJane was really impressive in my dealings with her to fix an issue I had - easy to talk to you, cooperative, and eager to alleviate any issues. My only complaint is with VRBO’s piling on of “additional charges” but that comes with all listings, regrettably.
