Welcome to the Baxter House Bed & Breakfast

Stunning light-filled architecture, an endearing and quiet location in the popular Kerrytown neighborhood, caring hosts, and hearty, homemade breakfasts make for a special bed and breakfast experience in Ann Arbor. Parents coming to visit their kids at the University of Michigan or to attend a game will find this a perfect home base which is only a little over a mile away.

The hosts have created a haven for travelers with comfortable common areas, reading nooks, porches, and beautiful gardens. Those who appreciate old-world craftsmanship will be amazed at the wood features throughout the inn and the geometric placement of windows providing natural light to permeate throughout the inn.

Front entrance to the Baxter House inn which includes beautiful gardensThis artfully reimagined home includes two rooms; the Sunset on the third floor which includes a bird's eye view of the tree tops from the balcony and a private bath with a romantic soaker tub for two,  and the Sunrise on the second floor where you can wake up to morning light and enjoy an en suite bathroom with a glassed-in shower.  The first-floor apartment, complete with a private entrance, is perfect for families or friends traveling together and includes two bedrooms with a full modern kitchen, dining/living room, and a bath and a half with a soaker tub for two.

Luxury amenities at the Baxter House Bed & Breakfast include natural fiber linens and organic bath products. Common areas include cozy areas to read in and the quaint Kerrytown neighborhood will beckon you to walk the tree-lined streets that are filled with beautiful gardens and restaurants and pubs that celebrate good food.

Breakfast buffet with fresh fruit

Breakfasts at the inn are a special affair and include palate-pleasing healthy fare including fresh fruit, homemade preserves, organic egg dishes, and artisan breads. The inn's pantry is always stocked with natural foods, organic eggs, fruits, nuts, granola, yogurt, and local meats, and Innkeeper Kathleen is quite accomplished at modifying your breakfast with any special dietary needs.

Unique Experiences at the Baxter House Bed and Breakfast

Cool City

Kerrytown Village is just a short walk from the inn and is known for its eclectic shops, art galleries, theatres, and restaurants. Some favorites include the Farmers Market and the walking trail along the river.

Named after County Kerry, Ireland, Kerrytown was part of the original village of Ann Arbor. Converted into markets and shops in the late 1960s, these historically old buildings have been meticulously maintained to preserve the timeless appeal of their brick and exposed beams.

Not to be missed is Zingermans Grocery/Deli. The original store has grown to encompass a cafe and bakery next door. Here you will find fresh flowers, freshly baked European-style bread, pasta from around the globe, and artisan olives, sausages, deli meats, and cheeses.


Ann Arbor is known for its vibrant arts and culture scene. The city is home to a variety of galleries, and museums, as well as theatrical and musical organizations that put on a wide range of excitingly unique performances. The University of Michigan is a hub for creativity and innovation, including varied art galleries and collections, performances and events, installations and exhibitions, and so much more


Getting to and around Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor’s downtown,  including the University of Michigan’s campus, is all very walkable.  For those looking for a ride, the local Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority is an easy and well-maintained public transportation system with over 1,300 fixed bus stops. The fare is only $1.50 and exact change is needed.  Zipcar is located all around Ann Arbor where you can reserve a car by the hour or day. You do need to become a member beforehand. See Zipcar map for location.  Arbor is only 25 minutes from the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), so there are many affordable and hassle-free options for transportation between Ann Arbor and DTW. We love to recommend the Amtrack, which arrives in Ann Arbor at the train station and is only a short 4-minute walk from the Baxter House Bed and Breakfast. The smaller Ann Arbor Airport is also a short 4-mile drive from the inn.
