“We will most certainly return!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

The aroma of fresh baked scones wafts aloft breaking my resolve. Just moments prior, I had told myself I wasn't hungry and would have a very light breakfast. The Lady of the Baxter House changed all that.
Location was the reason we chose the Baxter House B&B, being just a couple of blocks from the Ann Arbor Amtrak Station. Location, location, location is the mantra of the real estate world and this has the ideal location for us being close to the train station and Kerrytown with all the shops, cafes, farmer's market and theaters.
Kathleen Baxter has recently remodeled this wonderful home and opened it up with strategically placed windows offering not only the feeling of space and connection to nature but also natural light. She's got new cabinets, beautifully stained wood trim, really nice faucet fixtures, fast flushing Kohler toilets, and a real feeling of home. Never once did we feel restricted in any way.
The bed component of this B&B was comfy. Each bedroom has a decent sized armoire for clothing storage. The direct and indirect lighting throughout this place is very well put to use.
The breakfast component couldn't have been better. Ms. Baxter's pantry is fully stocked with natural foods, organic eggs, fruits, nuts, granola, yogurt, local meats, you-name-it.
My wife and I are anxious to return...if it isn't already booked.

Room Tip: There is no bad room.

We really enjoyed our brief but welcome stay with Kathleen at Baxter House. The home is stunning, the bed and pillows / bedding divine, and we regretted not having time to do the huge two-person tub justice! I have a special appreciation for the all-natural personal cleaning products on hand and organic foods. Breakfast was delicious, and Kathleen is a naturally charming and comfortable, helpful hostess. Highly recommended.

We went to Ann Arbor on a whim one weekend and happened upon Baxter House and what a twist of fate it was! Having friends and family all around Ann Arbor we are in the area often and frequently need a place for some respite away from the bustle that comes with rushed visits. Baxter House is the perfect place! It is homy and modern, with completely luxurious amenities and such charm! Kathleen is the perfect hostess providing a wonderful concierge service (at no extra charge,) delightful company and very accomplished breakfasts. She takes care of her guests as if they are all old family friends and treats each person with interest and compassion.

Any time we are back in Michigan from now on, we will think of Baxter House first and foremost in our travel plans.

Thank you Kathleen!

Room Tip: All rooms in this house are lovely with wonderful local beds, but our room on the back upstairs had...

My son and I stayed in the Baxter House B&B for two nights. The home is beautifully renovated, with lovely, light, hard wood floors. Everything is clean and cozy. What really makes this B&B special though, is the proprietor, Kathleen. She is charming, wise, helpful, and a fantastic cook! She is committed to whole foods. Her healthy meals taste divine! She cooks with international flair. Even more important, she is a beautiful, kind, person, inside and out. She could not have been more helpful to us in fulfilling our Ann Arbor goals if she were a beloved aunt. I can't say enough good things about Kathleen and our visit to her first-rate B&B!
