I organized a 25th anniversary party in Chico with all our friends coming from out of town. I wanted our three "friend couples" to be able to stay with us and found The Grateful Bed with exactly four rooms. We couldn't have been more pleased with this B&B, from the beautiful rooms to the excellent breakfast in the morning. Carol... More

We spent two nights at this lovely B & B. The innkeepers, Rick and Carol, payed attention to every detail which made our stay such an enjoyable retreat. They were warm and helpful, and a delightful couple. Everything was excellent...the antiques, garden, Rose room, ambiance, linens. Everything was immaculate. The breakfast was even more amazing, both the quality and presentation...so... More

We stayed for one night and found our hosts Rick and Carol both charming and friendly. The Grateful Bed is a wonderful acknowledgement of the past but somehow brought up to date with great attention to detail and authenticity. We enjoyed a memorable breakfast both in terms of the quality of the food and the bonhomie of the hosts and... More

We loved The Grateful Bed even though we just stayed one night. Would recommend to anyone. The breakfast was one of the best we've ever had. Cleanliness and hospitality were excellent. We would have enjoyed a second night but were in a hurry to get to Lake Tahoe

We found the Gratful Bed by chance after doing a quick internet search on our cell phones while passing by Chico. What a find! The house is full of charm and character, as were the hosts, Rick and Carol, were gracious. To top off our stay, the breakfast was sensational. Hopefully we'll get the chance to stay again.

We recently traveled to Chico to drop our son off at college. We chose the Grateful Bed due to it's close walking distance to Chico State as well as high reviews for cleanliness. Our drive was tiring with construction on I-5 and many summer travelers on the road. The hot weather also wore us out. While in Chico, we had... More

We stayed in the Creak Bed room--comfortably furnished, huge bathroom, fun antiques (but not so many that there's no room for your own stuff). The hosts, Rick & Carol, were terrific. They recommended a neighborhood restaurant (Red Tavern) for dinner, which was very good. They prepared a delicious breakfast and helped all the guests chat, but were not over-bearing. All... More

We found the Grateful Bed on the internet and liked the quirky labels given to the house and the rooms (we stayed in Creak Bed). We were on our way to Sacramento from the Farm Sanctuary in Orland, and Chico was an interesting and pleasant place to stop. Our hosts, Rick and Carol, were friendly and helpful with directions and... More
