We rented the entire Inn for a family event in early September. Sarah made sure that there was NOTHING that we needed (much planning as we had hosted a reception at the Inn for 30+people]. From a wonderful selection of breakfasts and snacks for kids and adults, to incredibly comfortable rooms, walking distance to AA and total charm throughout, it felt like we were at our own home for the 4 days we were there. A memorable experience for all of us.

This was our second stay at Burnt Toast Inn. The house was clean and well cared for with ample hand sanitizer and wipes available. The breakfast was divine and the host is personable and accommodating. We highly recommend the B and B and coming from NYC, we felt comfortable with the safety protocols during COVID19.

We had been traveling for weeks helping kids and friends move; draining flooded basements; lifting spirits of people with health issues….
When we arrived at Burnt Toast Inn it was to visit a son at Univ of MI. it was just the place for us to renew and recharge. The master room had the best bed I had ever slept in, such that we slept for 9/10 hours right through … only to be happily awoken to the aroma of waffles and coffee etc etc. I’m glad we stayed 2 nights to experience another morning of this delicious breakfast.
This is one of the more unique B&B’s we’ve ever stayed in. Eclectic and interesting art, magazines to read, a calm black lab dog to pet, and the right mix of a redone home preserving the wood floors, light fixtures but clean fresh.
It’s in an excellent location, walking distance to restaurants, jazz music, grocery etc.
I wish there was a Burnt Toast Inn kind of B&B in many other places!

Our host was fabulous, the house had so many interesting features, breakfasts were great, everything was super clean, there's a really nice outdoor space, and parking was easy. The location was within walking distance of so many great Ann Arbor favorites (restaurants, Kerrytown, UM campus, Main Street, and two excellent ice cream stores). Definitely recommend staying at the Burnt Toast Inn for any kind of Ann Arbor experience. We stayed in the Master Suite and it was superb: lots of space, quiet, and a great bed!

Sarah was a gracious host who provided warm hospitality in a very comfortable and clean setting. Located close to the center of Ann Arbor, it was easy walking distance to restaurants, museums, and the like. Each day began with a sumptuous breakfast complete with very healthy options. An affordable option compared to the local hotels, it offers an easy choice for us when visiting there.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Burnt Toast Inn very much. Sarah was a fine hostess. Our room was comfortable, the breakfasts were abundant, the house was filled with interesting art works. The location was within walking distance of central Ann Arbor, which made it very convenient. And of course, we appreciated Gus, Sarah's black lab. We will use Burnt Toast Inn for future stays in Ann Arbor.

This was my first time visiting Ann Arbor, and I'm here for work so I needed to set up wifi and everything before the check-in time. Sarah has been so wonderful with accommodating my time and needs, and she is very responsive and thoughtful in communication with me before and after I arrived.
The place is just fantastic. I could not resist but show it off to my friends the moment I walked in. The house has the best decor and style, and it's very clean and quiet. It is only 2 minutes away from where I work, and a short walking distance away from all the actions downtown.
The bedrooms are color-themed which I love so much! The bed is very comfortable, and the layout and wall decorations made a wonderful zoom background during my online meetings :)
I really enjoyed staying here, and will definitely come back in the future!

Just wow. Eclectic. Peaceful vibe.

Comfortable bed.

Amazing food.

Sarah was wonderful!

The house is circa 1905… creaky floors and all. We were in the Master suite. The soaking tub and dual head shower in that en-suite bath were the perfect vacation indulgence. The room stayed cool and we didn’t turn on the AC.

Parking was confusing as the street had spaces marked but a no parking towing sign and the side streets had resident permit parking only - so we managed to stuff our rental car into the driveway.

Was a pleasure having the two of you visit.. I know the street was crazy during your visit, installing bike advisory lanes. signs were confusing but now more or less back to normal confusing!! Now it specifies the days you can park on which side of the street. Hope you can come out this way again sometime soon.. Sarah

My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Burnt Toast Inn on a number of occasions, but this was the first time to stay in the Washington House. We loved the experience!!! The house, which is situated on one of the sweetest streets in Ann Arbor, is very quiet and comfortable and beautifully appointed with eclectic art and furniture and great color. The kitchen has everything a master chef could want. The beautiful gardens in the back yard are perfect for a relaxing afternoon rest. Sarah is the perfect host and such a lovely person, providing fabulous breakfasts and esthetics as well as great conversation. And then there is her adorable dog Gus, who is also the perfect host. Truly one of our favorite places to stay!

The host, Sarah, is the most welcoming, open, relaxed person you can imagine. She makes all of her guests feel at ease. Our room and ensuite bath was both luxurious and comfortable. Sarah's breakfasts are sumptuous! We have stayed with Sarah at least four times and everytime it is like "coming home". The location is perfect for walking to all of the restaurants, shops and the downtown UM campus.
