Beautiful home, warm and inviting, great location, and wonderful places to walk. Access was a bit tricky, but once we found Fairmount Ave. it was quite easy to navigate around. The neighborhood is delightful, great restaurants and shops within a few easy blocks - even if it is raining! The rooms are lovely, and amazingly quiet. Nancy and Jason are two of the warmest, welcoming people - and great cooks! It feels like being in the country, gardens, chickens, and lovely places to sit and just enjoy life - easy to forget we're in the middle of the Bay Area. The walk up to Mountain View Cemetery was well worth doing - great views and a fascinating piece of history.

- A B&B On Fairmount, a home-stay style B&B, has been operating in the friendly Piedmont Avenue neighborhood of Oakland since 1996. The Craftsman-era home has large and welcoming guest rooms and common spaces, countless sunny windows, and an over-sized organic garden with seasonal hens giving us fresh eggs. The congenial hosts enjoy sharing their home and Oakland's (and Berkeley's) terrific restaurants and attractions. ... more less
