A Royal Residence in Ypsilanti, Michigan!
on July 26, 2015
I previously stayed at The Queen's Residence B&B for one night in the Barnard Room, which is lovely. This time I reserved the first floor Hoag Room, named after a previous owner, has two entrances - off the dining room, and the other leading directly to a veranda with soaring pillars.
The Hoag Room is decorated in reds, golds and browns, with period detail and many antiques. There is a step-in shower of beautiful white and gray marble and a seating area within, a vanity with mirror just outside the shower, and a separate bathroom with lo-flo toilet and sink (the toilet/sink room has a door that may be closed).
I stayed for almost a week, and each morning the breakfast was different, and always delicious. Marla works with each guest's usual food choices (if they don't eat meat, for example) but I think I was pretty easy, as I loved everything she served!
Joe and Marla are cheerful, friendly, wonderful people who do everything to assure each guest that they will have a wonderful time during their stay.
Be sure to see the Wild Turkey Tavern in the basement!
As soon as I left, I was already wanting to return!

My wife travels for business a lot and has the hotel experience down. I always try to set up our getaways without the hotel "feel" so that it's relaxing. I came across The Queen's Residence while searching online, and to our amazement it was the best search I've done in a long time! Marla and Joe the Innkeepers, were absolutely superb, welcoming us just like family. The residence as well as our room, the Hoag Room, was beautifully appointed to the T. Breakfast the following morning was outstanding, every accommodation was made for gluten free exceptions and allergies right down to the cookies Marla made special for my wife!! I would highly recommend Queen's Residence and be sure to check out the turn of the century tavern, we will be going back...soon!!

It gives us great pleasure to know we made the grade given the fact that Suzette travels so much and has a wide base of comparison. We pride ourselves on making sure no one goes away hungry even if there are dietary restrictions to consider. We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to your return visit. Thanks for the glowing review!

Another Wonderful Visit
on March 09, 2015
My husband and I spent another lovely night at the Queen's Residence. We've been guests here a few times before and always spend time in the living room with friends who travel with us. Unlike some innkeepers, Marla and Joe don't make pests of themselves -- they are the perfect hosts in this beautiful bed & breakfast! The home is gorgeous without being stuffy. I'm sure we'll be back!
We are so glad our inn has worked out well for you and your friends. We try to "read" our guests to judge our level of interaction, so it appears we were on target with you. Obviously, when you come as a group the whole point is to visit with each other. Our job is just to make sure you have everything you need. Maybe the third couple will be able to join you again for the next visit!

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at The Queen's Residence. The home is beautiful. Breakfast was wonderful. Joe and Marla are the perfect innkeepers. We found so many fun things to do in the area - I think we will need to visit again next year!
Great! We are so glad you had fun and can't wait to see you again next year.

my wife and I have made a tradition of spending a weekend near our anniversary at various b and bs. we have always been fond of the ann arbor area. We had researched a couple of establishments and couldn't have been more pleased that we chose the queen's residence. the proprietors were both incredibly friendly and the accommodations and breakfasts were amazing. we commented to joe and marla that while this has been our tradition for several years, the queens residence will likely be our first return visit to any of the bed and breakfasts we have stayed at!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to your return visit!

This was our first stay in a B&B. It won't be our last but I'd venture to say few will meet out expectations after staying at the Queen's Residence. Joe and Marla are the most gracious hosts and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The rooms are beautiful, all taking you a step back in time. The breakfasts are elegant and delicious. Don't miss the tavern when you stay!!!!
Great, another convert! Hope to see you again soon.

I enjoyed my stay at this bed and breakfast, I stayed the 1st weekend of Oct 2014 and what a delight it was. I enjoyed this place so much, I did not want to go home after my 2 nights. The rooms were very clean and the best linen were on the beds. I celebrated my boyfriends 35th birthday here and we both enjoyed this place just the same. The breakfast was a true delight, we were surprised each morning w/fruit and granola which was excellent and a different breakfast treat/dish each morning. There was enough food to make us both full. I will stay at this place again, can't wait to possible go back in Jan 2015 to celebrate a new year. The house is very quiet and the decor is suburb. I enjoyed everything about my stay at this bed and breakfast, this was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast.
Anntoinette, I am so glad that you decided to celebrate Ray's birthday at The Queen's Residence. Even though it was your first B & B experience, you certainly did it right with a couples massage and a romantic dinner in the tavern! We look forward to your return visit.

This was our second visit. Oh!, what gracious hosts are Marla and Joe! Dare I say the breakfasts are simply marvelous, or better. No, I'm not being paid to write this! For us, a perfect location -- within a short walking distance to Riverside Park and Depot Town. We will return!
Thanks for the good PR! We love having you AND your terrific car. It sounds like we will have the pleasure of your company again next year.
our home away from home
on September 24, 2014
We have stayed at this Inn seven or eight different times over the last few years.
First we stayed in the Newton suite and the last three stays in the Gibson suite.
Each room has been comfortable and quiet.
Breakfast is always plentiful, delicious and changes daily.
The fireplace in the dining room adds to a nice environment.
There is a Keurig coffee machine and cookies in the afternoon.
In the evening we enjoy sipping a glass of sherry in our suite.
Pleasant patio to sit when the weather is nice.
Joe and Marla are very warm hosts. We are already looking forward to our next stay.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Our business is what it is thanks to our loyal repeat customers who become friends we look forward to seeing!
Took a chance,not disapointed.
