Burnt Toast Inn

Ann Arbor, Michigan

Welcome to the Burnt Toast Inn

Enjoy the comfort of a charming bed and breakfast in the Old West Side neighborhood of Ann Arbor - literally, you could not find a better location to have a peaceful night’s sleep all while being within walking distance of Ann Arbor’s best farm-to-table restaurants, locally owned shops, and best of all, close to the University of Michigan Ann Arbor football field.

What sets this inn apart is the hospitality of the innkeeper Sarah, along with her four-legged companion Gus. You'll often find guests lingering in the inn's kitchen chatting after breakfast -many times about Sarah's connections to the neighborhood and the best places to see and dine in Ann Arbor.  You'll always find locally sourced ingredients in her fare, including fresh milled oatmeal from the Gainery, local dairy from Calder's Dairy, fresh baked delights from Crust Bakery, and cinnamon rolls from Zingermans. Each breakfast includes a main course and fresh fruit that often includes a granola parfait and sometimes celebratory smoked lox and bagels on Sundays. Sarah's Inn was recommended in an article in Rachel Ray magazine that featured the famous Zimmermna's Bakery which in turn recommended Burnt Toast Inn as a great place to stay in Ann Arbor.  After all, we hear that Sarah loves to purchase their famous cinnamon rolls for her guests.

Entrance to the Burnt Toast Inn

The inn has an artsy Ann Arbor vibe! Each of the five guest rooms at the inn has been thoughtfully curated with the family's treasures.  Guests frequently gather in the kitchen to chat with Sarah or to relax in the inviting parlor or on the porch.

Unique Experiences at the Burnt Toast Inn

Historic Charm

The Old West Side neighborhood is known for its historic turn-of-the-century residences, many of which are German Four Square Architecture. Tree-lined streets make for a quiet stroll and easy walking access to all that Ann Arbor has to offer.


The Burnt Toast Inn is a perfect venue to gather family and friends while attending a football game or for families coming for parents' weekend. The inn fills up for the university games, so be sure to book your room months in advance.

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 the Zipcar map for locations. Ann 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.
