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

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

This is in a great location and Joan is a very nice host. The room was comfortable and the common area was welcoming. I was however not expecting to share a bathroom down the hall. I was also excited about the breakfast but it was a big disappointment. I have read so many nice reviews about the delicious breakfast however... More

Its like staying in a museum of books, with a wonderful intro to Univ of Michigan with so many details of the univ. Mrs Joan is a wonderful host, who loves to personally cook and serve a sumptuous breakfast everyday. You can forget time, just chatting with her. A wonderful stay in a boutique inn filled with books.. Thanks Mrs... More
