More than B&B! We feel like home!

The Queen's Residence is just close to perfection! Clean, confortable, spacious, very well decorated, wonderful bedrooms and delicious breakfast, everything with a twist of history! But above all, what we get from Marla and Joe is a true sense that we are welcomed in their home. Thanks again for your huge hospitality! Paulo and Gabriel Felix

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the accolades! We loved having Gabriel, who is an Eastern Michigan University student from Brazil, stay with us before school started. He is just a delight! Hopefully, we will see you both again. Marla Queen

I was so happy we chose this B & B

5 on August 01, 2017

This elegant historical home is on a beautiful street, safe to go for a pleasant walk to admire other architectural beauties, and conveniently close to shops and restaurants and parks.

Innkeeper Response
We are happy you chose our B & B too! Ypsilanti is one of the largest historic districts in Michigan so there are many beautiful historic homes here. We are just three blocks away from downtown shops and restaurants, which makes for an easy walk after a busy day of sight seeing or playing in the area. Marla Queen, innkeeper

Beautiful, historic brick home with lovely gardens.

Lovely property, enjoyed interacting with owners who live onsite. Chose an upstairs suite at the back of the house to avoid street noise. Slept in a wonderful bed, very quiet, would highly recommend. Excellent coffee and breakfast.

Innkeeper Response
A quiet good night's sleep is important. especially for travelers not sleeping in their own beds, so thanks for mentioning that. Our coffee is fair trade (Equal Exchange). We buy it from our local food co-op and it is called Love Buzz; perfect for a B & B, don't you think?

wonderful attention to details

5 on July 26, 2017

Our stay at the Queen's Residence was perfect. The hosts were gracious and friendly, gave us good recommendations for restaurants, and made us feel very welcome. The bed and breakfast was spotless and full of charm. We loved our room, the attention to period details, and the outside sitting area. We are hoping to go back!

Innkeeper Response
Praise can't get any higher than perfect and spotless...thanks so much! We sincerely hope we see you again.

Loved staying here

5 on June 12, 2017

What a wonderful place to stay if you in the Ann Arbor Michigan area. It was beautifully decorated with a Victorian decor, My favorite.I love all the antiques and pictures of Victorian Ladies. Every morning we woke up to the savory smell of a gourmet breakfast wafting up the staircase to start our day. The taste was over the top. The bed very comfy with beautiful linens. We love to sip wine in her gardens at night to end our day. I just can't say enough . I would highly recommend a stay here.

Innkeeper Response
I am so glad that you enjoy Victoriana, since it is my favorite too! A good sleep and good breakfasts are a must for a good vacation. Thank you for this lovely review. Please come see us again soon!

Very good stay

5 on May 10, 2017

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we had a very comfortabe stay at queen's residence. Joe was very kind and accommodating and the entire house was decorated beautifully. The breakfast was delicious too.

Innkeeper Response
Joe was on his own when you here while I was in Philadelphia babysitting my 3 year old granddaughter, so we are both delighted that you had a good experience! Please come back for another visit so that I can meet you too. Marla Queen

Exactly what you expect a historic B&B to be

5 on March 25, 2017

My sister and I stayed one night and would return in a heartbeat. The Queen's Residence is comfortable, well appointed, close to shopping and restaurants, and the innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and generously portioned and the coffee and tea (as well as water and soft drinks) are always available. Plenty of books, movies, and games are available as well.

Innkeeper Response
The great thing about a bed and breakfast is that you can stay in and still have lots to do. I am glad that was the case for the two of you. Ypsilanti has opened another restaurant since you were here, Ollie's, so now there are even more options for dining. Marla Queen, owner

New Year's Eve

5 on January 03, 2017

We have a group of friends that we celebrate New Years with every year. This year we chose Queens Residence in Ypsilanti, Mi and it was wonderful! The Inn Keepers chose a couple of 'stand ins' for them because they normally close the Inn over the holidays, Bob & Marilyn were soooo great! We had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect. Phil & Marsha DeVergilio

Innkeeper Response
Fantastic! It is hard to leave the inn in someone else's hands, but we have complete faith in Bob and Marilyn. This is not the first "5 star" review they have earned for us and we could not appreciate them more, so thanks. We are happy that your group had a good time. Hopefully we will get a chance to host you ourselves some time.
