First Street Garden Inn
Ranked #7 of 13 Ann Arbor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 March 2008

We have been staying at this Ann Arbor B&B since the fall of 2003, when our son was a freshman at UM, and have been coming back ever since, even after he graduated.
Conveniently located within walking distance of downtown and the main campus, this B&B on a quiet street is the perfect place to curl up with a good book, or sit in the garden with a glass of wine. The victorian home is beautifully decorated with antiques, and Mike and Kathy are charming hosts. Gourmet breakfasts to die for, and rates that are more than reasonable. If a B&B is what you are looking for in Ann Arbor, First Street Garden Inn is the place.

I really enjoyed my stay at the First Street Garden Inn. This bed and breakfast is located in a quiet neighborhood that is still just two blocks from Main St., Ann Arbor. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the breakfasts are wonderful (especially, the creme brulee bread pudding!), and the rates are very reasonable. But the best part of staying there is Kathy and Mike, the owners, who treat you with care and love.

Found this B & B on "trip advisor". Always a risk to book something only seen on line. This was perfect. The room was lovely and comfortable, the hosts were extremely accomodating, helpful. The breakfasts were very good. Couldn't have been better and we are pretty fussy. Would recommend for anyone although probably not set up for children (but imagine they could accomodate if need be).

Stayed: May 2007

My husband and I recently enjoyed two nights at the First Street Garden Inn B&B in Ann Arbor, a charming and comfortable place with charming and welcoming hosts. The location is FANTASTIC if your stay involves U. Michigan football or anything near campus, just 4 blocks from the stadium and 4 blocks from campus and the downtown shops, restaurants, etc. Owners Kathy & Mike are effusively helpful but not the least bit overbearing; their advice on what to do, where to eat, etc. was extremely helpful. Breakfast was delicious and quite enjoyable in their cozy dining room with antique silver, dishes & glassware...Kathy's french toast with bourbon pecan syrup is a new favorite! We stayed in the larger suite which has a great claw foot tub that we unfortunately didn't have time to try out, although the steam shower was a nice benefit after a very cold day out walking. Each room has a sitting room with digital cable, one with a VCR and eclectic selection of videos. The smaller bedroom has a Deco theme and a very dramatic, cool bathroom. Street parking was available. Make sure that you check out the First Street Garden Inn if you are going to be in Ann Arbor!
