Amazing Place to kickback and Relax!

5 on January 06, 2018

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!!


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.

Pampered

4.8 on November 16, 2017

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.


Outstanding!!

5 on November 15, 2017

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!!


The longest stayers

5 on November 08, 2017

My wife and I stayed at The Queens Residence from 10 – 23 October and became their “longest stayers”. Marla and Joe are warm and welcoming making you feel more like family than paying guests. It’s the kind of place where after dinner you can change into pyjamas (they provide sumptuous robes) and slippers and sit in front of a roaring fire and read a good book or as in most evenings during our stay have interesting conversations with the other guests. This is a place people return to. Many return for birthdays and anniversaries or just to visit friends and relatives. The house is beautiful the photographs on the website do not do it justice. The rooms are richly furnished, the beds extremely comfortable so a good night’s sleep is assured. The marvellous breakfasts will set you up for the day and if you need a place for dinner there are fifty eateries within a mile. Downtown Ypsilanti is a five minute walk, along a well lit road, where there are at least five restaurants, including an Italian and a Vietnamese. We would recommend this exceptional B&B to anyone needing accommodation in this corner of Michigan.

Innkeeper Response

Wonderful heritage home.

4.6 on October 14, 2017

A lovely home decorated with era appropriate antiques. Interesting history, too. Marla and Joe were welcoming and helpful. Marla was most accommodating in moving us to a quieter room at the back of the house. The breakfasts were delightful. Delicious food and a beautifully set table with linens and silver.

Innkeeper Response
