We stayed at the Queen's Residence B&B a couple weeks ago when we were visiting the area for a wedding. We were so happy that we decided to stay here! The house is absolutely beautiful, and Joe and Marla were so friendly and fun to chat with! The location is also great, as you are just a few blocks from... More

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! With regard to the "noisy window a/c", I would like to clarify for future guests that that was a temporary measure while our condenser for the a/c system was being repaired. There is no longer a window a/c to contend with. Hopefully, the sound machine does in fact help with the street... More

I travel quite a bit and love to discover new adventures. Loved this charming, B & B found in Ypsilanti (Yip-si-lan-tee), MI. While the area is full of many hotels they surely don't come close to the charm of this old world B&B. Treat yourself and enjoy the Queens Residence nestled in a lovely setting of downtown.

Thanks for helping get "the secret" out! We are glad you and your sister and cousin found us and enjoyed your time with us.

What a wonderful place! My family and I ended our holiday with a two night stay at the Queens Residence. We were treated like royalty! Our special diets were catered for perfectly and we wish we could have stayed longer! Joe and Marla were very welcoming and their home is stunningly beautiful!

One of the very best parts of owing a B & B is that you get to meet wonderful people from all over the world. We are so glad that we were able to host this delightful family from Ireland. Hopefully this review will encourage others from outside the U.S. to stay with us. And yes, we make every effort... More

My husband and I were warmly welcomed by the owners, who readily accommodated an early check-in we requested a half-hour before we arrived. The first thing we noticed is the home is beautifully decorated and maintained. We stayed in the Newton Suite, which has a large comfortable bed, and another bed (and an additional sleep sofa) in an adjoining room.... More

In March, my son had his Senior Voice Recital at Eastern Michigan University. We flew from Colorado for this event and stayed at The Queen's Residence, yet again.

This family has been coming to The Queen's Residence for most of their son's tenure at Eastern Michigan University which is right here in Ypsilanti.

Your review is a great testimony to the benefits of B & B's and "stay-cations", e.g., vacations that are often spur of the moment and close to home. We are glad that you enjoyed the atmosphere of our B & B, conversation with other guests and the breakfasts. Again, where else than a B & B can you experience a... More

An exquisitely decorated B&B and a beautiful old home. In Ypsilanti on business, so unable to enjoy the full meal, but Marla went out of her way to leave us breakfast items that were fresh and delicious. Joe and she made local restaurant recommendations and really made a routine business trip delightful. I would definitely return if in the area.

We are trying to attract more business travelers so I am hoping your glowing review will give other folks away from home on business an incentive to stay somewhere other than the usual cookie cutter hotels. When you come back you will hopefully be able to have one of our full three course breakfasts! More

Our stay was wonderful. The home is immaculate, the furniture and all appointments period, the breakfast delicious. We only regretted that we didn't have time to tour the 18th century tavern located in the basement - next time!

Sometimes you hate to write a glowing review because you know that you'll have a hard time booking your next trip! However, The Queen's Residence deserves nothing but exceptional praise. The Inn is a late 1800's, impeccably restored jewel. Marla spared no expense and gave up lots of time up-fitting for modern creature comforts and yet not disturbing the elegance... More
