Beautiful home and great hosts

4.0 on June 30, 2018

This is a very beautiful home. Marla and Joe very friendly and helpful. Both of them had recommendations for things to do around town and gave us some great advise on restaurants.

Best Bed and Breakfast

Everything you would want from a Bed and Breakfast and more. Historic house, comfortable bed, very clean, and welcoming and accommodating hosts.

Best Bed & Breafast! Truly a Gem!

Marla and Joe rolled out the red carpet for my husband and I during a birthday weekend in November! We’ve already booked for our anniversary in July. Everything from the scrumptious 3 corse breakfast each morning to the warm Hospitality and unique most comfortable room is something we will never forget! We are huge fans of bed and breakfasts and Queens residence set the bar pretty high for our future B&B adventures. I still to this day dream of those homemade cookies and the aroma of her superb breakfasts and the company of Joe & Marla. Thank you!

Innkeeper Response
Reviews like this is why I love being an innkeeper so much! We are so glad that we were able to help make your birthday weekend special. We look forward to seeing you both again in July.

Amazing Place to kickback and Relax!

The Queen’s Residence was one of our favorite B&B’s experiences. The house is quiet, clean, and beautiful. Marla and Joe go out of their way to make you feel at home. The Queen’s suite was luxurious and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was tasty and delicious. It’s proximity to Ann Arbor gives you a wide array of dining options as well. Great place - we highly recommend it!!

Innkeeper Response
We are delighted that you had a good experience with us and enjoyed our inn! One of the nice things about our location is that your have options for what to do and where to go with everything being in close proximity, whether it is Ann Arbor, Detroit, or just going to the airport. Thanks for pointing that out. Hopefully you will come back for another visit.

Queens Residence Lives up to their Name! Top Notch B & B

5 on December 19, 2017

My husband & I Had the pleasure of staying for 2 nights and planing to stay another weekend in January for my Bday! Let me just start by saying that Marla & Joe were by far the most gracious hosts and inn keepers. The scrumptious Breakfast both mornings were dressed with fine china and silver, plentiful portions and you can truly tell they were prepared with love. We’ve been to quite a few B&Bs from Michigan to Ohio to Kentucky and the Queens Residence is by far a B & B that will always go unmatched. Cleanest rooms we’ve ever stayed in, unique exquisite service and amenities! our experience here far more exceeded out expectations we cannot wait to visit again.

Innkeeper Response
You have left me speechless! What a complimentary review, thanks so much. Marla Queen, owner

Our stay at the Queen's Residence was beyond wonderful. Innkeepers Marla and Joe attend to an anticipate your every need. From the homemade cookies that are always available to the chilled bottles of water waiting for guests to take to their rooms in the evening to the sherry in the parlor, they have thought of everything guests need to feel welcomed and pampered. We stayed in the Barnard Room where we enjoyed the fireplace and warm comfy roads after a drizzly football game in Ann Arbor. The next time we are in the area we will definitely stay there. A delight.

This is our second time at the Queen's Residence and we have had a perfect experience both times. Gracious hosts and a house that would be worth touring only you get to stay the night! Wonderful history as well as a breakfast prepared by a wonderful cook ( I belive Marla may have real training so I probably should have said chef). We will be back!!

November 2017 Stay at Queen's Residence B&B

5 on November 14, 2017

Everything about our stay at the Queen's Residence was excellent! The house was beautiful and luxurious, the food delicious, and Joe and Marla were extremely welcoming and friendly. We would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay at a place that feels like home but is a decadent experience! Recommend

I felt like a Queen

This is the best B and B. Marla and Joe are great hosts. Their home is beautiful and each suite has its own unique style. Marla creates her special recipes for breakfast and they are tasty. We will return again.
