About Us

Over 15 years ago a friend asked Kathy and Mike if they could put up an artist in town during the Art Fair. That event triggered the idea and First Street Garden Inn was born.
Many guests have visited since that time. It's the kind of place where repeat visitors grow to be more than casual customers and everyone is treated to the same friendly service that makes you feel right at home.
Kathy retired from teaching and now spends her time enjoying her granddaughters, working in the garden, volunteering and the local performing arts scene. She also loves to travel. She speaks English, French, German & some Spanish and Italian if you have need of those services.
Mike is a retired teacher and contractor and also served on the Ann Arbor City Council. He volunteers with the Kiwanis and Meals on Wheels program, putters in his workshop, and works in the gardens in his spare time.
There are endless things they enjoy about living in Ann Arbor, but some of their favorites include the Washtenaw Dairy just around the corner from their house, and attending UMGASS (U-M Gilbert & Sullivan Society) theatre and opera productions.

Hanging out with family and appreciating their time together is another favorite pastime.
