We spent a wonderful three days at the Burnt Toast Inn in Ann Arbor while attending a wedding and festivities just a block away. The Inn is beautifully and very interestingly decorated, our room was large and comfortable (complete with a full bath -tub and walk in shower with double sprayers - and an external exit with a balcony), and Sarah was both a delightful host and a terrific cook. Her collection of paintings, posters, furniture, nick-knacks, artifacts, and trinkets kept us enthralled each morning as we breakfasted.
Besides being a perfect location for the wedding, it's just blocks away from downtown and Michigan Stadium - we had a nice short walk to the game on Saturday. Other members of our party were at the sister property just a few blocks away. That property is more traditionally decorated and has a kitchen that had the cooks in our group drooling.
And then there's Buddy and Bo (short for Bojangles), Sarah's humongous and very friendly dogs. We came in late each night to find Bo sprawled across the sofa and Buddy consuming the entire living room floor, neither even stirring. Both were welcome additions to breakfast each morning.
I can't imagine a better place to stay. Thanks Sarah!
