“great place to spend the night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We spent one night here after visiting Mackinac Island and on the way to Niagara On The Lake. Room was great, food was excellent and we highly recommend staying here. The owner's dad stopped by for breakfast and it was enjoyable chatting with the two of them before we left for Canada.

At a bed and breakfast, what is more important to you, the bed, or the breakfast? At the Midtown Bed and Breakfast in Frankenmuth, Michigan, a spectacular breakfast is more than just a meal. Put some eclectic fellow travelers around the breakfast table with the gracious host Diane preparing the meal, and her dad, a fifth generation native holding court and listen to the laughs and the sparkling conversation unfold.
There is something about sitting around a table over a well-prepared meal with guests eager to connect with others in a relaxed atmosphere that makes a bed and breakfast stay so enjoyable and Midtown B&B is one of the better examples of this from what we have found in our travels.
Read about Diane's story on her website. She is a former flight attendant who came back home to Frankenmuth to transform a 1910 house to a comfortable place of welcome.
Frankenmuth, northeast of Detroit, is an enclave of German heritage. The village is the legacy of 15 Germans who settled in the mid 1800s. The Zehnder family and the Bronner family are credited with making Frankenmuth a tourist destination. Zehnder's restaurant and Bronner's Christmas store are the anchors of course. But the Midtown B&B gives a more personal insight to the hardy folks who made their lives here.
Diane's father, Arnie, now 88 still has the German accent of his youth. Growing up on a farm outside the village, Arnie says he spoke only German at home, and did not learn English until he went to school.
Arnie's mother was a Zehnder. Her uncle started Zehnder's Restaurant, where nearly 1,000 people dine every day, most on the famous all-you-can-eat chicken dinner.
While the multi-course breakfast unfolds, Arnie keeps the food and conversation flowing around the table as Diane brings in other courses. Fresh fruit, pastries, an egg casserole, french toast and the highlight for me, a German sausage meatloaf are more food than you can imagine at one meal.
Arnie makes a point of getting to know everybody by name and be sure to ask him what it was like to grow up in the town. A member of America's "Greatest Generation," Arnie is a World War II veteran. He was drafted off the farm and ended up stationed in Germany at the end of the war where he even found the village of his ancestors.
Diane brings the sophistication of a world traveler with a down home sensibility to making people feel comfortable and welcome.

Room Tip: We got lucky with a last minute reservation and got the last of the 3 rooms, which had twin beds. Th...

My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights and were so impressed with the whole experience. We got in late and she had homemade cookies waiting for us. I've never stayed anywhere that was any cleaner. The breakfasts that she prepared were 5 star. Homemade blueberry pancakes, farm fresh eggs, fresh berries with freshly made whipped cream, latkes...I could go on. We took pictures of the food to show the rest of our friends & family who opted to stay in other places. Her sweet dad would come eat with us every morning and tell us stories of growing up in Frankenmuth. Her rates are such a deal. We would highly suggest you stay here if you are going to be anywhere in the area. It's only one block from Main street.

Me and my husband were looking for a hotel in Frankenmuth to spend the weekend ,and we couldln't reserve a room being they were all sold out. We looked on the internet and found the Midtown Bed & Breakfast. It was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast! It turn out to be a pleasant experience. Diane (The owner) was very professional, curteous, and well educated on the history of Frankenmuth! Breakfast was served every morning as stated in her brochure. She was delightful in conversation and also very charming! Diane has one of the most beautiful and immaculate home in Frankenmuth , Michigan. Diane has traveled around the world (being that she use to be a airplane stewardess!) so she is a people person!!! If you are looking for a place to stay and relax while enjoying Frankenmuth.... this is the place. I would also like to add that Diane's father takes in her overflow when she is full. Her father comes over in the morning has breakfast with the guests and delights them with his extensive knowledge of Frankenmuth history! I will be making plans in the summer to stay at Midtown Bed & Breakfast!! Thanks Diane for your wonderful hospitality!!

Room Tip: Privacy, and tranquility
