Six out of five stars!!!!! Joan does a fantastic job at her B&B in Mission Hills. I would highly recommend her accommodations. She is a very attentive and caring human being, even down to ironing the bed sheets. She is involved as much or as little as you would like. If you need your space, breakfast is ready each morning...

The Cobblestone Cottage is a stunning example of Craftsmen architecture and period gardens. Joan, the owner, has furnished the house with outstanding antiques. It is located in the friendly, quiet, trendy, Mission Hills section of the city. The Cottage is within walking distance of some great restaurants, bars, and coffee houses. We even extended one scenic walk to Balboa Park... More

I'd echo the comments of the others. It's a lovely B&B - very elegant and tastefully decorated with all of the perfect antique/vintage touches. It's also immaculately clean. Ms. Crone is everything you'd want in a host - as available as you'd like, but also not intrusive. If anything, I hope I didn't talk her ear off. She's also very... More

I could have walked from the airport! (~3 miles), and it's close enough to major roads to make travel easy yet far enough away that highway noise is absent. This beautiful and well-maintained old house includes a large B&B portion suitable for a single-traveler or a family w/ kids. Within 6-12 blocks are great places to eat & shop, a... More

We loved staying at Crone's. It's a delightful piece of San Diego history, in a friendly, walkable neighborhood. Joan has just the right balance of attentiveness and provision of space. Its a warm and comfortable place. We are looking forward to our next visit.

My husband and I loved every minute of our three day stay in Ms. Crone's beautiful and historic Craftsman cottage. The neighborhood is chock full of equally historic buildings inviting one to walk extensively. However the California heat did us in and we were so delighted to find shady refuge in Joan Crone's calm and airy home. She has collected... More

We love everything about staying with Joan and look forward to our fourth visit in the spring. The neighborhood is charming and very quiet, yet unbelievably convenient to the airport, Balboa Park, Old Town, downtown and freeways. It's also walking distance to shops and restaurants. Joan feels like a family member now and we love the varied conversations we have... More

My husband and I stayed in this gem of a B&B for four nights last month and found the entire experience to be a real treat. The craftsman style home is beautiful inside and out and was spotlessly clean. The host, Joan Crone is a warm, soft-spoken creative book artist and a delightful conversationalist. She made us feel at home... More

Arriving at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage after a hard day's work or play is even better than coming home. Walking in the door to a warmly welcoming home, relaxing in a hot shower, and sliding into the most comfortable bed with soft smooth sheets, all makes a perfect end to the busy day. Then to awaken to fresh fruit, the best... More

The description of this B & B doesn't begin to describe the serenity of Ms Crone's Cobblestone Cottage. Stepping from the street onto the shady porch transported my husband and me into a welcoming, interesting, restful atmosphere. The plethora of books and beautiful antiques plus the quiet respite from the traffic of city streets was such a relief. The entire... More
