I visit Ann Arbor many times a year for business, and have stayed at numerous hotels and B&B’s. Upon finding First Street Garden Inn, I now will stay nowhere else. It is conveniently situated in a quiet Ann Arbor neighborhood, a very comfortable house – yet is walking distance to downtown Main Street and to the University of Michigan. Kathi... More

This lovely B&B is within walking distance from downtown Ann Arbor, so it is perfect for exploring the town. At the same time the owners' beautiful garden offers an opportunity to relax and rest. The breakfasts are to die for too! I thoroughly recommend this place to anyone, and I will definitely come back!

The First Street Garden Inn was wonderful. We will definitely stay there again next time we visit Ann Arbor. Kathy was wonderful; she gave us ideas for places to eat/drink in town, and she made just delicious breakfasts. Man, those breakfasts were good. The house is beautiful and cheerful, with Art Deco flavor (on the inside), and lovely art and... More

We came for a football game at Michigan. We found the inn to be a perfect location, half way between downtown and the stadium. (Although it was a slightly longer walk to the stadium). The innkeepers were very helpful with recommendations and directions around town. You may want to make a dinner reservation for the weekends, things fill up fast.... More

We were very pleased with the First Street Garden Inn. It is a beautiful turn-of-the century home convenient (on foot) to downtown Ann Arbor as well as the Univesity district. The house is filled with beautiful art and surrounded by gorgeous gardens. The innkeeper is warm, friendly, helpful, and not at all intrusive. Her breakfasts were delicious, if a bit... More

Our first stay certainly not our last. Very nice Bed and Breakfast located in quite and Historic West side of Ann Arbor. Very friendly owners who do a great job. Among other highlights a delicious breakfast served every morning (4 day stay). Covered front porch perfect for morning paper and coffee. Surrounded by well tended gardens with back yard area...

I stayed at the First Street Garden Inn for a business trip. The First Garden Inn located in an Ann Arbor neighborhood less than half a mile from the University of Michigan, restaurants and shops. It's secluded on its canopy tree lined street that you don't even realize how close you are to the University and downtown. The First Street... More

This is a small B&B with just two rooms. I stayed in the larger suite for four days, and it was just right. The room was beautifully appointed but also very comfortable -- the suite has a great old freestanding bathtub. Each of the breakfasts was completely different, and all of them were delicious. Kathy (the owner) is a great... More

First night--a tray of champagne was brought to my room. Every morning a different place-setting of beautiful china at the dining table with my coffee. The cozy home is decorated in turn of the century furnishings--arts and crafts, art nouveau, original Japanese engravings and oil paintings and Fresh flowers throughout the house. Someone there is an artist at heart.
