We were in town for a wedding and stayed here for two nights. The hosts, Donna and Lee, are very nice. The place is inviting, clean, comfortable. We stayed in the Monet room and very much liked it. It comes with a spacious bathroom with a fantastic shower. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. There are also pastries and fruits left... More

Awesome B&B. Stopped in Ann Arbor on our way to Chicago. We stayed in the Santiago room. The house was immaculately clean, and our room was comfortable. Plus, the B&B is a short walk to downtown. Donna and Lee were fantastic and very accommodating. I would stay there again!

I visit Ann Arbor frequently for work. I have stayed at hotels and a few other B&Bs. Avalyn Garden is the best by far. It is very clean and comfortable. Unlike other places, near the university, it does not feel like a student's dorm room. The room was well furnished, very clean and the bathroom was large and comfortable. I... More

The Avalyn Garden B&B as created and hosted by Donna and Lee is darned near perfect. There's no point in repeating all the other positive comments you can read in reviews here, except to say they're spot on. We met friends from D.C. here in order to attend the Ann Arbor (Ark) Folk Music Festival together. As a former snow-loving... More

Donna and Lee made sure we were comfortable and content throughout our stay. The Monet room was well appointed and the adjoining bathroom had a fantastic shower. Breakfast was as delicious as it was attractive. We had a wonderful stay and plan to return.

This was our home away from home for a number of visits to CS Mott. The time we were in Michigan was filled with highs and lows for our family based on medical needs. Lee and Donna provided an environment that was so warm, spotless and welcoming. They treated us like family and provided a comfortable place for our Toddler... More

We spent a weekend in Ann Arbor visiting our U of M student, and had the pleasure of staying at Avalyn Garden for the first time. Everything you read here is true. The home is so beautifully appointed; the care and pride of Donna and Lee, the owners, is evident throughout. Food was wonderful; coffee, tea, cocoa, cider, cookies and... More

Although only 3 hours from our home, we had always wanted to spend a little more time exploring Ann Arbor. Finding the Avalyn Garden B&B was a stroke of luck. The Avalyn was well managed and maintained by innkeepers Donna and Lee and their breakfast offering and accomodations were excellent. The B&B is nestled in a neighborhood of grand old... More
