The Library B&B is within walking distance to many of Ann Arbor's attractions and is conveniently located on the UofM campus. The owner is an amazing woman who is extremely knowledgeable about the University, Ann Arbor and the state of Michigan. She is also very generous and as noted elsewhere, an excellent cook. Upon arrival, she gave me a complete... More

I highly recommend The Library B&B. Joan, the owner, is a hoot! The place is a little small but comfy. Jam-packed with memorabilia, and a story behind each item My daughter has some odd food allergies, but Joan accommodated us with no problem. Clean and comfy. Great location, too, if you need to get to UM's campus. Loved it!

The Library is an extraordinary B&B with the best location on campus. Joan is what makes the place truly special. Her collection of historical books and uniquely themed rooms provide a cozy museum-like atmosphere. Joan is also an excellent cook and storyteller with extensive knowledge of U of M and Ann Arbor. For the location, value, and hospitality this is... More

A great, great bed and breakfast. Ideally located near the intersection of Hill Street and Packard within easy walking distance of the central campus. Joan prepares you a terrific breakfast at the time of your chosing. The sleeping quarters are very well appointed and immaculately clean. Joan does have a lot of her collected items in them, but they do... More

Joan's B&B is a lovely place, and she is just friendly and welcoming! I arrived that in the late afternoon, and she spent some time telling me where to find what. I stayed in a room full of miniature books and I just loved it! The living room for guests is so cozy and, again, full of books (but in... More

I cannot believe the hatchet job on the Oct review! I love staying with Joan, a very warm, welcoming, interesting and fun woman, with a very cozy place. I love the upstairs den/kitchenette, the great breakfasts and the little extras. I have stayed there three times, and will stay every time I go to Ann Arbor. It is comfortable (I... More

My husband and I love B&B's and wanted to do something special. We were really excited because it was the 'Library B&B' and we both love books. I had emailed Joan what time we were going to arrive, when I called her later that day to tell her that we were going to be an hour late she picked up... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Library B & B. Books, books, and more books filled the rooms, making them cozy and inviting. The breakfasts were wonderful and Joan, the proprietress, was really fun to chat with. She was most helpful making suggestions of places for us to explore in Ann Arbor. I really appreciated the upstairs sitting room and... More

I stayed at the Library B&B while attending a conference in Ann Arbor, but spent a good amount of the trip enjoying the town with my partner as well. I had such a nice time. Joan is extremely welcoming, has fascinating stories to tell, and cooks marvelous breakfasts. We stayed for several nights and each morning she served something new:... More
