Perfect place to stay whether to visit Ann Arbor or rest up for a visit to the U.of M. Medical Facility as I was doing. Very close to campus, walked to restaurant for supper. 5 min drive to Medical Facility. Elegant, clean and quiet. Hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Superior breakfast. House and room were spotless. Beautifully decorated with...

My husband and I stayed here last night for a mini-getaway before our baby arrives in June. It was pure heaven!!! We stayed in the Monet room and the king bed was the most comfortable bed ever and allowed me the most restful sleep I have had in months - I only wish we could have stayed longer! The shower...

Lee and Donna have established one of the finest bed and breakfasts I've ever visited. They, as a husband and wife tandem, prepared wonderful breakfasts (usually with a twist, and they go out of their way to accommodate any type of dietary requirement) and host in an immaculate house, each room with its own flavor. The room I stayed in...

It's time to write a review after returning from my third (or fourth? I'm not sure) stay at this lovely, well-appointed home. All the rooms I've stayed in have been comfortable and lovely, and the breakfasts are out of this world. The service and amenities are an amazing deal, even at twice the price, Donna and Lee enjoy their work...

Super clean, beautifully finished, relaxing & centering environment, delicious gourmet breakfast, friendly and professional hosts. Great location. All the practical necessities taken care of efficiently and gracefully. We stayed for a couple of nights while the power was out at our Ann Arbor home due to a wind storm. Had a lovely stay-cation. Both mornings at breakfast had fun conversation...

Can't recommend Lee and Donna highly enough - when you are far from home you want the comfort and friendlieness of home - just like it says on the tin. Great to meet the other guests who are now friend and hope to come back and visit them too one day

We booked three nights to stay here while visiting our son. Lee and Donna were superb hosts. Breakfasts were homemade and plentiful and they are willing to accommodate any dietary needs/preferences. We would certainly stay here again.

If you have stayed in B&B's before, there is almost heightened expectation the accommodations and services are beyond a chain hotel or motel. Avalyn Gardens did not let me down. I had called to make sure the B&B's location was close to two local ice rinks, as my grandson was in a tournament and I wanted to be near the...
