I concur with the great reviews that helped me decide to stay at this location. I really can't find anything wrong with our stay except for the parking--but that's not the owners' fault. If you do use their driveway to unload, park sideways across the space so the neighbors don't get wrinkled. Step out onto the sitting room at night... More

I stayed here for a weekend while attending a workshop nearby and found it to be a lovely, homey, comfortable B&B. The room was large and sunny, the breakfasts were delicious, the garden was enjoyable and the owners were very pleasant.

Stayed here while visiting our daughter and family. It was our second visit as the accommodations are warm and friendly with truly delicious breakfasts. It is small and very personal. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a unique place to stay in the Oakland area.

Booked here because it was 1 block from our daughter and their brand new son (our first grandchild!!), but such a pleasant surprise. Friendly, warm and well equipped, we have a perfect accommodation with what are now friends. Certainly highly recommended, were it not for the charms of that new baby, we would have explored the garden and spent more... More

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter and new baby granddaughter. The house was lovely, the hosts were welcoming, the breakfasts were delicious and the conversation was stimulating! The neighborhood was quaint and quiet, the rooms were clean and their garden area was lovely and quite the conversation piece. We definitely recommend their B&B. Nancy and Jason... More

We were here for two nights while visiting our daughter and her family who live in the Kelton Court condominiums. It was a relatively easy walk between the two properties. We stayed in the smallest room but had more than enough space. It was attractively decorated and had all the amenities that we needed. The shower, in particular, was excellent--not... More

Neither of us can say enough about the warm welcome, the constant attention to any request that we made and the overall comfort of this B&B. Oh, and the breakfasts aren’t bad either!! Actually they are outstanding. We particularly loved to explore in your garden and really enjoyed Jason’s stories and anecdotes. An easy walk to many really great cafes... More

I needed a place for my sib and partner to stay for two nights while they visited my family in Oakland nearby. The arrangements went smoothly, the room was comfortable, the fresh eggs for breakfast a treat. Be aware that there are a lot of steps up to the front door if you are bringing a heavy suitcase. Not overly... More

Beautiful home, warm and inviting, great location, and wonderful places to walk. Access was a bit tricky, but once we found Fairmount Ave. it was quite easy to navigate around. The neighborhood is delightful, great restaurants and shops within a few easy blocks - even if it is raining! The rooms are lovely, and amazingly quiet. Nancy and Jason are... More
