Cozy, inviting and intimate. A great place for a weekend getaway. The claw foot tub in our room was a nice touch. If you are able to take a cooking class, I highly recommend it. It's a great way to get to know your fellow B&B'ers.

This review is for a cooking class I attended; I didn't stay overnight, but will definitely be keeping The Nestle Inn in mind the next time someone asks about lodging options downtown! The theme of the class was the Foods of New Orleans; the menu included crawfish etouffee, shrimp po boys, and beignets. The experience was very much like hanging... More

I was looking for a romantic place to stay for our 20th Anniversary and I hit the jackpot! I was able to arrange to stay and it was a complete surprise to my wife. We stayed overnight on December 26th so the Inn was decorated for the holidays and was gorgeous. We stayed in Room 1 on the ground floor... More

This cozy and well-maintained Inn's location is an ideal base to take advantage of Mass Ave's impressive collection of local restaurants and bars, which are in very easy walking distance. It is a longer hike to downtown's main tourist attractions, Circle Center and the sports venues, but they are only a short cab ride away or sign up to use... More

I'm not sure if John and Leesa were intentional about creating the anti-B&B, but they did -- in a good way. All the charm of a historic home without the doilies, and with modern conveniences like late check-in. And the location just steps off of Mass Ave. can't be beat. You should plan ahead b/c it's tough to get in... More

I think you came up with a new tag line for Nestle Inn.......the anti-B&B! We like to call it B&B redefined....but either way, I think you captured our purpose of providing a hotel like stay in a redefined B&B experience. Not that we are anti other B&B's........B&B's are a very early example of small businesses.....but we are trying to be... More

Everything about my experience was amazing! I especially loved the self-check in because it gave my fiancé and I the flexibility to come earlier or later if we wanted. The property is both beautiful on the outside and the inside. My fiancé is deaf and was instantly drawn to the beautiful piano inside the main corridor. My fiancé decided to... More

We made a totally last-minute weekday reservation, to sneak in just one night away from the kids. Leesa was responsive and accommodating about check-in and the hiccups in our crazy life, that made us twice change our arrival time. We didn't see much of her, but when we did she was friendly, and she paid nice attention to detail, leaving... More

This well-appointed bed and breakfast is a convenient location just off of the downtown area. Walking distance to many artsy shops and restaurants and one block off of Massachutes avenue. My daughter and I have stayed there annually since they opened over 10 years ago. I highly recommend this over a hotel stay.
