This eclectic and beautifully maintained B &B is a true gem to find. Comfortable and inviting with many niches to sit, read or daydream. The beds are very comfortable, and the rooms are spacious. Off street parking. Wonderful outdoor sitting area gives you a secluded beautiful oasis to have a glass of wine and relax.

We are locals that just needed a 'getaway' for my birthday. Beautifully decorated with antiques, an art deco kitchen, great rooms and a lovely yard on the west side of town. Close to the Sacramento River trail, downtown eateries and shops. Just a few minutes drive from I-5 and the hustle and bustle of big box stores, chain restaurants and... More

Desmond house is is a great place to stay. Gregg has done a wonderful job making it cozy and comfortable. Inside and out there are lovely seating areas for quiet talks. The bed was very comfortable and I slept like a baby, something I rarely do on trips. Gregg has mastered the balance of being a great host and allowing... More

Checked in early, and Greg was there to meet me. I chose the brooks room because of the bed. It's an antigue bed that was shipped in from the east coast, and it has a lot of history behind it. The house is tastefully decorated and we could sit by the bay window and stare out all day long. Greg... More

Lovely stay in a cute and tasteful home. Greg is a gracious and warm host and his house is filled with novel nik naks. There is a pleasant outdoor area to lounge in and the rooms are comfortable and well ventilated. The beds were feeling a little old and hard but not a big deal. Breakfast was great -fresh fruit...

Greg has the most wonderfully decorated house; the place is packed with antiques of the Art Nouveau period.The place is better than a museum of furniture of that particular era. It is clear that Greg put a lot of time and effort in gathering all these objects that give this house an extraordinary feel. Both rooms are great (we could... More

We loved our brief respite at The Desmond House. Greg, the owner, made us feel very comfortable and actually sat with us while we had breakfast. What commends the Desmond House is the hospitality. Throughout our visit, Greg did all he could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The Desmond House has two guest rooms, a common living room,... More

Fantastic! At the Desmond House you will find relaxed and homey accommodations and a warm and welcoming home-owner. The beds are dreamy and the antique furnishings are lovely. Greg, the owner of the home, has a quirky interest in renovating old lamps and light fixtures, bringing color, fun and frivolity into every nook and cranny of the home. We thoroughly... More

I had to travel to Redding as my daughter was having surgery at the Shasta Regional Medical Center. I arrived, after driving for five hours, tired and just a bit anxious. The moment Greg greeted me and showed me my room I started relaxing. The bed had a great mattress. There were robes in the closet, the bathroom was modern... More
