Drove down from Northern Michigan to have a quick anniversary getaway. The moment we got there, Lee and Donna were extremely accommodating and friendly. They made us feel right at home! The entire atmosphere felt rustic and glamorous, but still had everything necessary to keep up with the here and now. The room we stayed in was comfortable, clean, and well kept after. The bathroom was, strangely enough, one of the highlights! You will want to take 3 or 4 showers a day just to experience it. After a night on the town downtown, which is only 2 miles away, easily walk able if you want, we came back to a mini champagne, compliments of the Perry's! Breakfast was great and not to heavy, and they did not rush us out or make us feel hurried. Would definitely stay there again!
Thank you so much for your kind words. Lee and I are very glad that you enjoyed your stay at Avalyn Garden and we hope to see you again! Donna Perry

I was able to stay at Avalyn Garden for 2 nights. The proprietors are most gracious and helpful. The property is very clean and quiet. The ambiance, cozy. The B&B is located on a major artery of town yet the rooms are quiet. Easy to get to the U of M campus. I've been to at least a dozen B&B's in my travels. This is about a good as it gets! I stayed in the Monet room, very roomy. The furniture is beautiful and bed very comfortable. The "piece de resistance" is the lovely, delicious breakfast you get in the morning. I travel up to 80% of my work time and found this to be quite a nice change to the usual hotel chains. I had all the amenities needed. Avalyn will definitely be my go-to in Ann Arbor!

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing place to spend our anniversary, and this was the perfect fit! Everything throughout the bed and breakfast was incredibly well thought out, and Lee and Donna are both wonderfully hospitable! They provided us with helpful suggestions for our evening out, which we took and were quite pleased; and upon our return, we found that they had left us an anniversary present in our room. I am so glad that we found Avalyn Garden, and I look forward to recommending it to friends and family as well as returning one day ourselves!

The atmosphere and warm hospitality at Avalyn Garden made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Donna and Lee were welcoming and most accommodating. Their home is beautifully appointed as are the rooms. The bed, made with fine linens, was very comfortable. A spacious private bath and the ability to control the temperature in our own room were definite pluses. The breakfast was delicious and very attractively presented. Beverages were available to us even in the evening. The home is nestled on a quiet treed lot that gives a feeling of the countryside within the city. Thanks so much Donna and Lee. We will be back. All the very best. Paula (Toronto) and Kathleen (London)
