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.

We asked if we could invite our daughter and her fiancee to...

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...

The owners have put their heart into making this a standout B&B and it shows. I've been to many B&B's and this one is my favorite. It was located near to my dr's appt, as well as shopping districts, theatres, and fantastic restaurants. The home and guest rooms are beautiful, well-kept and clean. We stayed in the lovely Monet Room...

My son and I enjoyed a peaceful 2 night stay in this gorgeous B & B, conveniently located close to campus.

Staying at Donna and Lee's place is an amazing experience. Our hosts are hospitality personified and we only wish our trip wasn't so short. Our room was the Links, but Donna and Lee gave us a tour of the house and clearly, no matter where you stay, you'd feel comfortable and happy. The place is spotless throughout, and is surrounded...
