Our family rented all 5 bedrooms at Queen's Residence twice -- for Thanksgiving and for Easter weekends. Joe and Marla were very accommodating and understanding of our needs. The place is exquisitely furnished and decorated, and they take great pride in the quality of the linens and amenities, as well as the sumptuous breakfasts -- as they should. They arranged... More

My husband and I have made it a practice to stay in Bed and Breakfasts when I travel with him on business trips. We recently were in the Ypsilanti area and stayed at the Queen's Residence Inn. What a delightful experience that was! We stayed in the Hoag room on the first floor to accommodate my husband's trouble with steps.... More

Words can't express the wonderful time I had during my one night stay during the month of june 2015. From the time I got out my car and was greeted by the beautiful garden and one of the end keepers Marla, I felt swept back in time to an enchanting place. I was able to view most of the rooms...

We had to travel to Ypsilanti for my wife's aunt's memorial service. For accommodations, I chose the Queen's Residence randomly, since it's location might be fairly close to the church we had to attend. It turns out the church was an easy 5-10 minute walk, as were a couple of eclectic restaurants Joe had recommended to us. My wife had... More

I guess you weren't disappointed because we see that you made another reservation! I love how you called the inn a "crown jewel". I will have to figure out where I can use that phrase. Since I recently took time to weed the gardens I am delighted they were appreciated. It gives me incentive to go out and do it... More

My Wife booked this mini-vacation for us mainly because of the advertised dinner package: a dinner for two in the lower-level, 1700s, tavern originally purchased for installation in Henry Fords Greenfield Village. Even though the dinner offer was no longer supposed to be offered, the Innkeepers said that if it was on the website, they would honor it... no argument,... More

We are so happy that you enjoyed your dinner in our Colonial travelers' tavern. It is fun for us to do these specials to give guests the unique experience of traveling back in time. Your weekend truly was a retreat since you didn't even need to leave the inn! It helps that you found my cooking "amazing". I loved your... More

My wife travels for business a lot and has the hotel experience down. I always try to set up our getaways without the hotel "feel" so that it is relaxing. I came across The Queen's Residence while searching online, and to our amazement it was the best search I've done in a long time! Marla and Joe the Innkeepers, were... More

What a hidden treasure this place is! My husband and I were looking for an easy weekend getaway to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and I'm so glad we chose the Queen's Residence B&B. Although we live just around the corner in Ann Arbor, neither of us have spent much time in Ypsilanti, so this was the perfect place. We... 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
