Burnt Toast Inn

Burnt Toast Inn

Burnt Toast Inn is located at 415 W. William in Ann Arbor’s historic Old West Side, just three short blocks west of Main Street. We are WALKING DISTANCE TO EVERYTHING! The house was built in 1915 in the simple, strong style of the early German settlers. The Burnt Toast Inn on William features a lovely Master Suite with a large bathtub and spacious tiled shower. The Attic Suite features an attached bathroom with large, fully-tiled two-person shower. The two single rooms, the Purple and Gold have access to a shared bathroom on the same floor with a fully tiled shower.

We offer a breakfast that features a variety of delicious pastries, bagels and choice of cereals along with excellent locally-roasted organic “Burnt Toast Inn” coffee, tea, juices and fresh fruit. Weather permitting this can be enjoyed on the front porch.

There are a number of good breakfast places nearby such as Café Zola, The Broken Egg, Sweetwater Cafe and, a bit further, the internationally-known Zingerman’s Deli.

There are many highly-rated restaurants in the neighborhood such as the Chop House, Palio, Gratzi, the Earle, Shalimar (Indian), Blue Nile (Ethiopian), Aut Bar, Cafe Zola, Pacific Rim (pan-Asian/fusion), Vineology and many more. Along with fine dining, you will find many fun shops for clothing, home decorating and jewelry along Main and nearby streets. Of special interest are:  Peaceable Kingdom, 16 Hands, Selo/Shevel Gallery, Treasure Mart and Hollander’s at Kerrytown Shops.

Areas of entertainment include: The Ark (folk music), The Blind Pig (live rock, popular), The Cavern Club (dance), The Firefly Jazz Club, The Michigan Theatre (art film), The State Theatre (film), The Power Center and Hill Auditorium (home to many University Musical Society performances) the University of Michigan Athletic Campus and much more – all within walking distance.

Get active at Ann Arbor School of Yoga and The Movement Center or at the Ann Arbor YCMA (members only) or at Vie Fitness & Spa, all a short walk from either house.

There are two large resident dogs at the Burnt Toast Inn on William: Bojangles (goes by “Bo”) and Buddy Love (goes by “Buddy”). 

Our goal at the Burnt Toast Inn is to have our guests feel as if they have “gotten away from it all”. Therefore, there are no televisions, phones or computers to be found. Wireless internet throughout.

Due to the layout and the presence of dogs this is an adult only B & B.

We look forward to seeing you!
