I travel 4 out of every 5 weeks. This is a wonderful place to look forward to after a long work day. It is the perfect balance of perfection and coziness. The innkeepers are both friendly and professional. I don't plan on ever staying anywhere else when I visit Ann Arbor.

If you think of a cozy, beautiful place, you got it. If you think, well, breakfast must be good in a B&B, you are going to experience being in heaven every morning! Marla and Joe are just one of best people I met in my whole life! Their generosity is beyond any expectations. When they say: "Prepare to be pampered!" They really mean it! I am very happy I have trusted all the good reviews in this website! Marla and Joe, you have a friend forever in Brazil! I miss you loads and love you more!!!

Our stay was excellent. I felt like I was being treated like royalty! The chocolate by our beds, the hot tub (awesome with many different jets!), the homemade cookies, the delicious food, the ambiance of the newton room, the decor and history - all made for a treasured visit. Joe and Marla were very friendly and helpful. We hope to return! Don't forget to check out the Historic Tavern downstairs!

Thank you Marla and Joe. The Queen's Residence is a beautiful, interesting, historical home. Even though my husband and I are not ones to stay in Victorians, this B&B was comfortable, relaxed, and best of all the innkeepers made us feel totally welcomed and at home the moment we were greeted at the door. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the courtyard before having dinner at "Red Rock" a BBQ restaurant recommended by Marla. It did not disappoint. Our suite had a cozy sitting room and we enjoyed relaxing. The breakfast was scrumptious and plentiful. Hope to go back again. Would recommend to anyone!

We spent 3 nights at the Queen's Residence and enjoyed everything about it. Joe and Marla are excellent hosts that treat you like family. The renovated house, a project of Marla's, is fantastic to poke around in and discover fashion of the past. The only warning is that after one of Marla's gourmet breakfasts don't make any plans for lunch!
