My two teenagers and I spent part of Easter weekend here recently. Suzanne and Don were wonderful hosts, even when we arrived later than planned on Saturday evening. The house is wonderful, beds were comfortable. Front porch swing was awesome and the food was very appealing. Highly recommended if you're looking for a classy B&B with the personal touch.

We rented the guest cottage out back and it was perfect for our needs. Suzy and Don did everything they could to make us feel at home. They welcomed us immediately when we arrived and gave us the grand tour of the property. The house and guest rooms are lovely. The Guest cottage had full kitchen, so we did not... More

We combine business and family vacation, usually stay in San Diego. Found this gem last winter (Feb. 2014) and loved it. A beautiful, clean, quiet sanctuary in a great little city, easy travel to San Diego. Proprietors were as others have described - gracious, accommodating and friendly to a fault. And yes - the french toast is sublime, as are... More

Available parking, wonderful porch and porch swing, really nice sheets, the pillows were just right, the decor was lovely without being too much. The breakfasts were so good, everything fresh, ample portions, and good coffee. The owners steered us to excellent places to eat. We felt special.

We went to visit my daughter in Escondido and by chance came upon an exceptional B&B in Escondido...we would most definitely return. The Creme Brûlée French Toast is to die for ...breakfasts were delicious. The beds are very comfy and you are suppled absolutely anything you need. Don & Susie were super hosts and we enjoyed sharing stories, they really... More

This Bed and Breakfast was perfect for our trip around the perimeter of the U.S. Very relaxing and peaceful. They had an awesome jacuzzi hot tub with jets and lights and was kept hot 24/7; most of the time you have to wait a few hours to heat them up but this one is kept on all the time so... More

This was the perfect spot for my grandson and me after a long day at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Don and Suzy managed to make us feel right at home (we had all the comforts of home--T.V., wi-fi, jacuzzi, movies to choose from, extremely comfortable bed)--and also give us our own space. We also enjoyed sitting outside on... More

We stayed with Don and Susie when we were in the area for a wedding at the Ranch at Bandy Canyon. Where to start? The food was great-especially the French Toast. Coffee on demand from the well stocked Kureg. Very comfortable beds, quiet neighborhood. Hot hot tub and great shower. Susie stocks the bathroom so if you forgot something, chances... More

Two dear friends and I took over the whole three bedroom place. I had read reviews and was hopeful of a positive experience. We were BLOWN AWAY! The place is way better than photos portray! QUAINT is a word too small. The 1888 Inn is amazing. Decor perfecto. The breakfast that others reviewers have raved about, lived up to those... More

You're in good hands when Don and Suzy are your hosts. They were very welcoming and helpful to me. The breakfast is quite tasty. It helps if you like dogs; they are a definite presence at this B&B. There was a kitchen renovation underway when I visited (had been ongoing for a number of months) - makes things a little... More
