We stayed in Zebra Room on basement level so we could go out late and not disturb anyone. Private bath, quiet, separate entrance, clean, decorated more modern than the main rooms. Breakfast was great, sausage, eggs, juice, coffee, biscuits, fresh fruit. You can't beat the price for such a great location. Thanks Sheila and Ira!!! P.S. Try the Avondale Brewing... More

We arrived at the Hassinger Daniels after getting notification of an "upgrade" from the Cobb Lane property the night before only to find a note on the door for a number to call. When we called, the innkeeper seemed confused as to who we were. She arrived about 15 minutes later and gave us a tour of the facility and... More

I've never been so pissed or insulted in my life!!!! I booked a reservation at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion. I have been BURIED with work, desparately needed a tiny getaway with my wife, and called and booked a reservation a few weeks ago. I was really looking forward to our night, but now a family situation forced us to cancel.... More

I loved our night at this cute b&b. I loved the antiques and decor and felt it was like a little dolls house! Our room was very warm and cosy and pretty. The bathroom was opposite which was fine but I would have liked a lock on the door come morning time! Breakfast was family style around a big table... More

We stayed at Cobb Lane over the weekend. The bed and breakfast is truly lovely. However, due to a serious family emergency, we had to cut our trip short. Although we left before check-out, we were still charged for the next day's stay. This was a bit much, when services were not rendered for the second day, and also compounded... More

I stayed at Hassinger Daniels Mansion (camelot Room) over the weekend and was absolutely bowled over! The renovation of the old mansion was truly amazing, and to say it is beautiful in an understatement. The mansion provides everything a traveler needs (comfortable beds, flat screen TV, blow dryer, iron & ironing board, etc.) but is so much more than a... More

This large and fully restored 1898 mansion is the second B & B operated by the artist couple Ira and Sheila Chaffin. Cobb Lane was the first, and is a few blocks away from thhe mansion, and described by the owners as an upper middle class Victorian. Cobb Lane's website currently covers both properties, hence the review here. The location... More

We reserved a room at the Cobb B&B but Shelia, the owner, offered us an upgrade at her other B&B, the Hassinger Daniels Mansion. This place is really neat, built in 1898 and is loaded with wonderful period artifacts. Reading about the history of the place was fun too. Shelia, a delightful host, was a pleasure to talk with and... More

This is a mixed review, although I am tilting toward a poor review. Maybe I would have been happier if I hadn't stayed in the Rose Room. The bad: Do not select the Rose Room. You cannot tell from the photos on the web that the Rose Room has a very large, very cumbersome pocket door. I am a strong... More

The owners offer 2 upscale B&B's, Cobb Lane and The Hassinger Daniels Mansion. We chose the later for our anniversary. It was a perfect choice. The inn is finely done in victorian splendor. The innkeeper, Shiela Chaffin, was a wonderful hostess and very sharing of her time and knowledge of the mansion's history. The morning breakfast was tasty and served... More
