We had an opportunity to stay in this wonderful Bed and Breakfast this past August and we pleasantly surprised to find that the owner and operator was a previous student at this school! We were the only ones at the B & B on this date. There were four couples so we could pretty much all choose our own rooms!... More

Old and a bit creaky, but our room was clean and comfortable. Sound from the room next door was an issue, but we were tired and managed to sleep well regardless. Excellent breakfast in what was originally the owner’s first grade classroom. Didn’t have time to enjoy the pool, but would love to have done so. Certainly worth the price.... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B in Sept. My husband had gone to school at Northside for three years in the 50s. It was a very fun stay to spend the night in the principal's office. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent! We had a great chat with Ruth who was a most delightful... More

This B&B is located in a former schoolhouse. Beautifully converted to accomodate guests. The location is pretty central to outdoor activities and to a number of restaurants. The innkeeper is very knowledgeable of the area as she was raised there. We stayed in the Tuscan Room. Very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was totally awesome--souffle, french toast, fresh fruit, and much... More

We flew in our plane into the BF airport. This B&B is close and perfect. Great rooms, great hosts, easy access to downtown, fabulous breakfast. Beautiful restoration of a classic old schoolhouse. Definitely well worth the stop. Thanks, Northside B&B,

Our host and hostess were warm and welcoming. Our room was neat as a pin, spacious, quiet and comfortable. And the homemade breakfast was outstanding! We were passing through and only stayed one day, but would like to have stayed longer. The grounds of the B&B are beautiful, as is the surrounding area.

My daughter and I stayed here and it was the high light of our trip. Ruth made us feel so welcome. We stayed in a class room with two single beds but there are queen size beds in the other rooms. The grounds are beautiful, with spots to sit and enjoy the beautiful views. Breakfast was great, cloth table clothes... More

The property is gorgeous! The homemade breakfast was over-the-top! Oh my goodness, SO good! Our room was very comfortable with all we needed. We stayed two nights. My only complaint would be the hostess Ruth. She was intrusive and over-bearing. Extremely bossy with my children and would complain to guests about other guests. I found this very unprofessional. She would... More

This is a great BnB. Do not let the one poor review sway you (that person would do best to just stay at a Hilton). Ruth and Gene really run this place well. You feel totally welcome. The place is completely charming. They went to a lot of work to restore and convert this schoolhouse to a BnB. It feels... More
