Located within walking distance of downtown Ypsilanti, the Parish House offered a large, comfortable, very well-appointed room with lovely private bath, and a gourmet breakfast served in a welcoming breakfast room. After researching B&Bs in Ann Arbor, I decided to explore Ypsilanti, just 7 miles away. I was very pleased with my decision, and especially with the Parish House. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Ann Arbor/Detroit area.

Thanks to Chris for preparing her tasty breakfasts. We enjoyed her tasty breakfasts. We enjoyed her meals so much that we purchased her cookbook. The Parish House Inn has nice rooms & is conveniently located (walking distance) to downtown Ypsilanti. A good place to stay if you are considering visiting/shopping in Ann Arbor.

This place is super clean and the inn keeper is great too. My only issue would be the noise. I have been to several b&b in the past so I know in a house you will hear others. This was the worst by far. The bed was so squeaky every time I moved it woke me up. I also couldn't sleep when anyone else had the tv on, making meals, walking the stairs, took a shower, or when they were down stairs getting a snack. That being said I am a light sleeper so maybe it wouldn't bother you. My husband the heavy sleeper had a little problem with the noise but after a few hours was out. They do have good food and comfy beds. The bathroom is the smallest I have ever seen but cute. Two people could not be in there at the same time.

What a wonderful experience arriving at the Parish House Inn and meeting Chris, the fiesty, wise and charming inn keeper. We love the Parish House Inn. Chris was a the door the moment we hit the driveway and then showed us to our beautiful room in a beautiful building. Amazing attention to detail - our room and the open parlor invited exploration and admiration. Lovely gardens, right on the river, close to everything in Ypsi. Delicious fresh food in the morning, baked goods, fruit, juice and an ever full jar of spectacular cookies. Treated like family. We enjoyed a long talk with Chris who shared her wisdom on local topics (a good spot for dinner) to gems only a grandmother could hand down. Couldn't have asked for more. Also a great value.

Since it is baked, never stirred, the texture is different. It is mixed with milk, grated apple, dried cherries and toasted almonds and just a touch of brown sugar in a casserole and baked. This is like a breakfast pudding and is loved by all who try it.
