“charming B&B with great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

This was our second stay at the House of Another Tyme B&B and we’ll be back! By now it feels like coming home when we stay there. Judy & Jack are genuine, friendly and accommodating hosts, the rooms are cozy, clean and comfortable, the food delicious. The village of Arroyo Grande with nice shops is worth a visit.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. A spacious, comfortable room with spacious, comfortable public areas. Although we only were able to stay one night, we felt very well-taken care of by our hosts. Judy gave us all the information and tips we needed, was a great conversationalist, and made us feel right at home, encouraging us to use the kitchen, refrigerator and dining room.
She even made popcorn and asked us if we wanted some. We admired her garden and she gave us some cuttings for the succulent garden we were starting at home. We left with a wonderful feeling for House of Another Tyme.

We've met many efficient innkeepers, but true hospitality is rare. Jack and Judy Tiedemann's attitude is more than welcoming, it's true hospitality. At House of Another Tyme you don't just occupy a room, you relax in a home, one furnished with a hundred clocks but not a smidgen of time pressure. We were greeted with, "You've had a long trip. Would you like some coffee? We'll have some fresh cookies out of the oven in a few minutes to go with the coffee." And the welcome was complete: "Use all the rooms, help yourself to the snacks in the fridge. Would you enjoy sitting in the garden and reading? Want to pet the garden's rabbit? Sip the wine you bought in the village? Play the piano? Pull a book from any of several hundred lining the bookcases?" We can truly say we never felt more cared for, more "at home." HAT is a great place if you're relocating and looking at possible rentals or purchases, which we were. Indeed, we liked House of Another Tyme so much we really would have preferred a permanent visit to purchasing our own place in Arroyo Grande, which looks like a great community. We strongly recommend this place!

Room Tip: We loved the Le Pointe room. It's light and airy and very comfortable. However, another room has...

We came up for the Cal Poly Graduation Ceremony. Perfect for us to stay. It was a home away from home. It is a B&B and they did advertise that it isn't appropriate for childen. You'll get it when you are there as it is a quiet, serene peaceful place. There are alot of beautiful detailed touches that a child could break. There really isn't a place for children to run around. It's a time and place stay where there are 3 rooms with a queen bed, plenty of space to put your stuff, and roomy private bath. Keep in mind that again this is a B&B therefore in this case there is no TV, radio, landline phone or alarm clock in your room - the name of the house goes with its theme. Judy serves a divine full breakfast that has fruit and a specialty dish. Jack & Judy are kind to consider what you like to eat and drink. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. They want you to think you are at home. We felt at home and would come back again to stay. It is a great value to stay there as well as situated well. The village of Arroyo Grande is easily walked to. Pismo and SLO are within easy driving. What was great in this situation was SLO was absolutely nuts b/c of the graduation. Arroyo Grande was perfect. We found a great restaurant for the entire family to gather (Gina's) and enjoyed the end of a wonderful day celebrating. Again Jack & Judy are wonderful. They are so willing to share. Judy shared her recipe for french toast souffle which was off the hook! I loved one of her outdoor plants. She went out and grabbed me some to bring home & plant! We look forward to staying there again!

Room Tip: Call Jack and Judy

Our stay at the House of Another Tyme was a truly heartwarming experience. The home of Jack & Judy is a nicely decorated house with charming rooms, within walking distance to the village with nice shops. Judy went out of her way to make us feel at home. We were spoiled with delicious food (yummy cookies and a wonderful breakfast adjusted to our personal preferences). We also enjoyed meeting the other guests, genuinely nice people. Excellent value and a memorable stay. We will definitely return when we're in the area again.

A first class stay in every way possible. Our welcome was great. Food was superb. We were treated as one of the family and nothing was too much trouble. Jack even sent our family an e-mail updating them on our trip (without out request - a little understated touch of kindness). Would recommend this "home from home" without reservation.

We stumbled across it in 1999 for a business trip in the area. We were trying NOT to stay in the typical "hotel-du-jour", and did we find it here! Been staying there ever since. We try to make it a couple of times a year just to getaway from the hustle/bustle of life -- no phones or tvs in the room, and no kids running around in the halls. A perfect, serene adult setting. The house is turn-of-last-century charm with today's amenities. They have 3 full suites, served with a breakfast to die for -- you won't need lunch! Jack & Judy will make your stay fabulous. :-)
