I stayed here for just one night while visiting Chapman U. for business. The owner was extremely welcoming, and provided everything I needed without being overly present, as can sometimes be the case with B and B's.

The French Estate, often referred to as The French Inn, was a terrific place to stay. I needed a room as I was in from out of town for a lavish Christmas party at an old friend's home. I prefer the Bed & Breakfast atmosphere to a local hotel for many reasons... one being the personalized service and terrific breakfasts.... More
