My husband & I stayed here over Valentine's Day. We received this getaway as a gift from my parents for Christmas! Of course being from Ohio & it being February, we drove through one of the worse storms of the year. While it normally takes us only 2 hours it took us almost 5! As soon as we got there... More

We're glad you found your retreat worth it after your grueling winter drive! Since there were small children in the inn the same weekend you were here, I am pleased to know that you found the inn and your room quiet and peaceful. It helps that the guest rooms do not have adjoining walls! We are delighted that you discovered... More

My family and I visited Michigan and were fortunate enough to stay and the Queen's residence! What a treat!! Everything about our stay was top notch- from the freshly ironed bed sheets to the 5 star gourmet breakfast! Wonderfully authentic historical home, spotlessly clean and comfortable, with attention to detail! Everything was perfect. Marla and Joe go out of their... More

The Newton Suite is a good choice for a family since it nicely accommodates two adults and two children. We are glad it worked well for you. I am always grateful when guests notice the ironed sheets since Joe still wonders why I put a priority on that. Thanks for the nice compliment about the gourmet breakfasts! Marla Queen, owner More

Luxurious B&B within blocks of downtown Ypsilanti. Decorations throughout the home are very tasteful and elegant. Everywhere is meticulously clean. Bed is comfortable and we both had a wonderful night's sleep. Breakfast was tasty with lots of options. Joe and Marla were a perfect host and hostess. They gave us the grand tour of the home and all the rooms... More

A good nights sleep is oh so important. We are glad you found our bed comfortable! We take care in keeping the inn clean so I am glad it is appreciated by our guests. Thanks for letting people know we are close to downtown and within walking distance of several good restaurants. Oh course our frigid weather has made it... More

Once again Joe and Marla have given us a wonderful relaxing weekend away from home. We had a beautiful stay in the Hoag Room this time. Spotless clean, fresh ironed linen and plenty of room. As with our other stay here the breakfast was great along with the conversation with the other guests. We would recommend the stay here a... More

This review is a long time coming, but not for any other reason than a busy life. I stayed here in early summer to move my daughter from U of M.

I feel vindicated! My husband has always wondered why I take the time to iron the sheets. You have just offered the perfect reason. I'm glad that you noticed (and appreciated) the ironed sheets and that you had a good nights sleep. Reviews like yours makes me proud that I do what I do. More

beautifully decorated, comfy bed and Marla and Joe are very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and the other guests delightful.

Thank goodness for guests or we would be over run with tomatoes! I've been sending them home with everyone lately.

A few months back, my husband suggested I go to a B&B for some personal R&R that he felt should encompass a retreat-like setting and would be nearby to visit my daughter who attends UM. He was spot on. I feel the experience begins and ends with Marla and Joe. They have raised the bar as innkeepers/hosts--a wonderful couple who... More

I was so eager to start my retreat, I left the directions at home. Finding what I hoped was the number, Marla guided me to the parking and met me at the gate in welcome and an offer to assist with my luggage. The rest of my stay was as congenial, warm and solicitous as those first moments. The gardens... More

I concur with the previous reviewers who loved their stay at the Queen's Residence. My only disappointment is that we were on a schedule and could not stay longer to enjoy the great house and warm hospitality of the hosts. Thank you, Joe and Marla! We will be back :-)
