If you like a B&B experience -- chatting with the owners, meeting the other guests at breakfast -- then you will enjoy Avalyn Garden. The owners, the Perrys, are welcoming, warm and gracious hosts that are friendly but not intrusive. We enjoyed our chats with them over the course of the weekend and felt that they genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. They are generous and thoughtful with little touches, like water bottles in all the rooms. Speaking of the rooms, ours was lovely. We stayed in the Monet, which has a spacious king-size bed that takes up most of the floor space in the room, but we did not mind that as we were only in the room to sleep. The bathroom is roomy and very nicely outfitted. Breakfasts were lavish and quite tasty. The location is ideal - a very short drive to the south end of campus and but far enough removed from student housing that you don't feel like you are surrounded by frat houses. And the garden around the house is lovely. We were fortunate in that the other couples staying at the same time as we did were interesting and pleasant - we spent an hour talking at breakfast! We would happily return to this B&B for our next trip to Ann Arbor - one of our favorite towns.
