Kathleen, the owner and innkeeper, is incredibly gracious, welcoming, knowledgeable about the area and a great cook. We stayed for two nights, and were wishing we had a third so as to try another of her wonderful breakfasts. Kathleen was very friendly and a great source of information on everything Ann Arbor, particularly great places to eat. Thanks Kathleen! We'll... More

Set up: On the bottom floor there is are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen and the other with a queen and a full sized bed. There are 1.5 bathrooms... More

Owner and innkeeper Kathy has a gracious, welcoming style that keeps me coming back. She serves the freshest, healthiest breakfast with the highest quality ingredients, and she accommodates individual dietary needs. You will love your stay here!

My wife and I stayed at the Baxter House while enroute to a concert in Ohio. It is incredibly charming and very well situated. A five minute walk had us in the heart of downtown Ann Arbour where there was a number of excellent restaurants and pubs to choose from, not to mention the excellent farmers market. The house itself... More

Our group of 12 was lucky enough to be able to secure the entire B&B for two nights. Working with Kathleen during booking, a site visit, during our stay and after was a dream. She went above and beyond in every way to accommodate us. It felt like we were staying with family, only this family member was also a... More

This B&B has a great location in a leafy green residential neighborhood of historic Kerrytown. It is in walking to distance to town and campus. Zingerman's, the Farmer's Market/Artist's Market, the breweries, and Bill's Beer Garden are all a short walk from the B&B. The space is newly renovated, light filled and modern. It was immaculately cleaned (with Mrs. Meyers... More

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The house: beautiful, modern, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The breakfast: creative, healthy, accomodating, and extremely delicious. The host,... More

This B and B served our needs beautifully. Baxter House's Kathleen provides a relaxed atmosphere with wonderful and varied breakfasts. We felt no need to eat again until supper time! She takes the guests needs into account for time of the meal as well as what you prefer to eat. The location allows for easy walking to great restaurants, venues... More

This was my second stay at Baxter House for business meetings, and I was once again delighted. Both times, we stayed in the lower apartment (2 bedrooms, but only 1-1/2 baths) and used its lovely living room and kitchen as our conference room for working meetings. We love the easy walk to downtown restaurants and entertainment. Kathleen's breakfasts are fantastic... More

Highly recommend this gem perfectly located in Ann Arbor. My Kelly, brother-in-law Jamie and future sister-in-law Megan all had a great stay while in town from Toronto and Orillia for the 2014 Winter Classic.
