Holcroft House Detroit

HOLCROFT HOUSE (Detroit, MI):  Sleeps 8, Historic-Charming Home, 6 Bathrooms! 








Located in Detroit, this historic home rests in one of Detroit’s finest neighborhoods. Holcroft House is perfect for a larger family, ladies night, couples cultural evening, and all who have events in or outside of the city.

Elegance is just one word you could use to describe this beautiful home. From the wooden staircase to its velvet couches, this home tries to encapsulate the city’s splendor. The combination of character, history, and charm can be easily found in this 3700 sq. ft. 1920’s home.

Holcroft House is equipped with a full kitchen, breakfast nook, 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, Florida room, and art space. This multi-level home has enough space for privacy and enough space to gather; it is a perfect balance.

Holcroft House is just 12 minutes to downtown Detroit where you can enjoy casinos, sports venues, restaurants, and festivals. If you would like a quieter scene, popular eclectic Ferndale, is approximately 5 minutes away, where you can enjoy restaurants, shops, and night clubs.

Cleaning Fees Explained:
a. Cleaning fees booked directly through Freshwater Vacation Rentals are NOT taxable.  (This is a way to save you $$.)
b, Even though our room rate is generally less per night during the Spring, Fall and Winter, no one wants the cleaning quality to decrease.
c. We expect our cleaners to clean at the same level they would for the Peak Summer season, year-round.
d. We pay our cleaners a living wage. They deep clean, wash all the linens and prep each bed, regardless of how many people are on the reservation. 

a. When a couple is staying at a large house, and using only 25% of it, do they really want the home cleaned only 25%? Of course not.

b. When considering how many beds will be used, there are many variables-- Who are couples? Just friends? Family? Do all couples sleep in the same bed? Who snores? 
c. Yes, sometimes the cleaner will make more money on your stay than the property owner or management company.  It is essential to keep the space fresh and consistently cleaned throughout the year.

   Please note:
If you are truly just staying in as a couple here at Holcroft, where we can block off ONE bedroom and bathroom just for you, we can do so at a reduced cleaning fee upon request.
If we can, we will. It's the Freshwater Vacation Rentals positive guest experience mantra.
