We had to make last minute reservations, and were only able to stay one night, but this was by far one of the best places we have stayed. Location is excellent. Easy walk into town, park nearby, and lovely grounds to relax in. Room was impeccable, and so well appointed. Comfortable bed, great bathroom, places to store things, and lots... More

We've been looking for a place to stay while in Ann Arbor visiting family. We found it at this wonderful bed & breakfast. Our Host and Hostess, Lee and Donna, are very gracious and accommodating, the rooms are delightfully appointed, and the breakfast is wonderfully presented and prepared. We are looking forward to returning soon.

Loved this Bed and Breakfast! As OSU Buckeye fans, we were visiting Ann Arbor for the first time after spending a few days at Mackinac Island. Donna and Lee were very accommodating and friendly. We walked through campus and ate at Grizzly Peak which we all enjoyed. I'm so glad we stopped at the law quadrangle and saw the very... More

We stayed a couple of days at the Avalyn Garden and it was everything we could have wished for in a b&b. The building and yard are both lovely and the location is good. The house is an old fashioned 1920s two story structure, completely renovated, but with the charm intact. It is within walking distance of the U of... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary night at the Avalyn Garden. Everything was first class. We were welcomed upon our arrival by the owners, Donna and Lee. They gave us a tour of the house and then were we left to enjoy the comforts of our beautiful room-the Monet suite. King bed, lovely linens, fresh flowers in the room... More

This Bed and Breakfast is fantastic! We spent Christmas day at Avalyn Garden and it is was just wonderful! This is an elegant craftsman home, furnished beautifully. We sat in the livingroom next to the fire and listened to Christmas music, ate cookies, and drank hot chocolate. Our room named "Links," had a golf theme, which my husband appreciated. The... More

Needed a one night get-a-way... so many B&Bs require a two-night stay minimum. The Avalyn was just what we needed (along with the downtown breweries). As a bonus, the "team up north" was out of town the weekend we were there so no obnoxious, arrogant blue and yellow fans to contend with -- only a good one -- my wife...... More

I was in Ann Arbor for work purposes and decided to turn it into a mini vacation since I've never been to Ann Arbor. I can't say enough great things about this lovely home. I stayed two nights in the suite. It was very clean, cozy and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is delicious and gets your day to a great... More

We recommend this B&B 100%!!! Lee & Donna are incredible hosts, and have created the most thoughtful Bed and Breakfast we could have ever imagined. I don't know how to explain our experience aside from perfect. We felt so at home from the moment we walked in. We stayed in the Monet Room- absolutely beautiful! The bed was heaven. The... More
