I had the good fortune of getting a room at Baxter's B&B during a recent storm in Ann Arbor during which we lost power at our home for two days. I was thrilled to stay in my beautifully appointed and spacious bedroom. Cathy is a hostess with the mostest-- a very generous spirit, a gourmet foodie, and a truly welcoming...

I recently wrote and sent to trip advisor a review of this lovey place. Do not see it posted anywhere---I love this B&B perhaps you can get back to me as to why it has not shown up. I just don't want to reconstruct what I really wanted to say, for my note was most enthusiastic

My husband and I spent 5 days at Baxter House this past week to celebrate his 30th birthday and our one year wedding anniversary and we have only wonderful things to say about the house and Kathleen! We arrived a little early and Kathleen explained that she had someone cancel and she offered for us to stay in the apartment...

I was planning to go to Cranbrook Art Museum. While I was looking for a place to stay, I found this gem. The Sunset Room's description sounded perfect for my actual plans: "...step out onto your private deck with a 3rd floor bird's eye view. ...relax with a glass of wine in the evening air..." I did a little writing...

If you are looking for a centrally located bed and breakfast in Ann Arbor look no further. The accommodation is lovely, the owner is solicitous without being overbearing and the breakfast is delicious, plentiful, and imaginative in a wonderful way. You'll be in good hands with Kathleen at Baxter House. I'll definitely be back.

Fabulous b&b modern, friendly everything you could want and Breakfast 'to die for'. Wooden floors and walls and just so clean! Balconies everywhere to just while away the hours enjoying the multitude of wild life around. Kathleen is a lovely person, warm, welcoming and an amazing cook! Don't hesitate just book it!

My husband and I spent two nights at Baxter's Bed and Breakfast and totally enjoyed our stay. We were served a personalized homemade omelet breakfast (including fresh fruit, excellent smoothies and scrumptious grain-y toast) out on the open deck. Our room was spotless, quiet and comfortable (yes, she IRONS the sheets!) Kathleen was a fountain of local knowledge and steered...

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights in the Baxter House Sunset Room when we were in Ann Arbor enjoying a nephew's directorial review of a musical at the UMich Power Center. We couldn't have been more pleased of both the B&B and our nephew's talent. The Baxter House is close and very walkable to everything downtown has to...

A lovely find. The room downstairs (which is shown in the photos) seems to be the nicest room. It has a really modern and nice bathroom attached, and the linens and bed are good quality. The only small gripe for this place is that the room is not that private. The french doors have white blinds that pull down but,...

My husband and I went to Ann Arbor for the Michigan home opener and early anniversary celebration and stayed at the Baxter House B&B. Kathleen was absolutely wonderful and welcoming! The breakfasts were amazing (baked oatmeal Saturday morning and Hippie Hash Sunday morning...both delicious!). We had a beautiful walk to Michigan Stadium from her house (approximately 1.5 miles) on Saturday...
