My husband and I spent 5 days at Baxter House this past week to celebrate his 30th birthday and our one year wedding anniversary and we have only wonderful things to say about the house and Kathleen! We arrived a little early and Kathleen explained that she had someone cancel and she offered for us to stay in the apartment...

I was planning to go to Cranbrook Art Museum. While I was looking for a place to stay, I found this gem. The Sunset Room's description sounded perfect for my actual plans: "...step out onto your private deck with a 3rd floor bird's eye view. ...relax with a glass of wine in the evening air..." I did a little writing...

If you are looking for a centrally located bed and breakfast in Ann Arbor look no further. The accommodation is lovely, the owner is solicitous without being overbearing and the breakfast is delicious, plentiful, and imaginative in a wonderful way. You'll be in good hands with Kathleen at Baxter House. I'll definitely be back.

My husband and I spent two nights at Baxter's Bed and Breakfast and totally enjoyed our stay. We were served a personalized homemade omelet breakfast (including fresh fruit, excellent smoothies and scrumptious grain-y toast) out on the open deck. Our room was spotless, quiet and comfortable (yes, she IRONS the sheets!) Kathleen was a fountain of local knowledge and steered...

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights in the Baxter House Sunset Room when we were in Ann Arbor enjoying a nephew's directorial review of a musical at the UMich Power Center. We couldn't have been more pleased of both the B&B and our nephew's talent. The Baxter House is close and very walkable to everything downtown has to...

A lovely find. The room downstairs (which is shown in the photos) seems to be the nicest room. It has a really modern and nice bathroom attached, and the linens and bed are good quality. The only small gripe for this place is that the room is not that private. The french doors have white blinds that pull down but,...

My husband and I went to Ann Arbor for the Michigan home opener and early anniversary celebration and stayed at the Baxter House B&B. Kathleen was absolutely wonderful and welcoming! The breakfasts were amazing (baked oatmeal Saturday morning and Hippie Hash Sunday morning...both delicious!). We had a beautiful walk to Michigan Stadium from her house (approximately 1.5 miles) on Saturday...

My wife and I enjoyed our weekend at Baxter House B&B very much. Kathleen, the owner and innkeeper, is a terrific host and a gourmet chef! And the location is convenient to downtown restaurants and stores, as well as to Kerrytown which holds a terrific farmers market on Saturdays and other fun events on weekends.

Kathleen, the owner and innkeeper, is incredibly gracious, welcoming, knowledgeable about the area and a great cook. We stayed for two nights, and were wishing we had a third so as to try another of her wonderful breakfasts. Kathleen was very friendly and a great source of information on everything Ann Arbor, particularly great places to eat. Thanks Kathleen! We'll...
