“Charming, home-feel stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

I concur with the great reviews that helped me decide to stay at this location.

I really can't find anything wrong with our stay except for the parking--but that's not the owners' fault. If you do use their driveway to unload, park sideways across the space so the neighbors don't get wrinkled.

Step out onto the sitting room at night for a strong whiff of night Jasmine. It was an amazing experience. We stayed in the cozy clean pink room, with its cute shabby-chic decor and spacious bathroom with a claw-foot tub.

The breakfasts were wonderful. Some of the ingredients were from the garden just outside the dining area.

Loved it. Really did. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here for a weekend while attending a workshop nearby and found it to be a lovely, homey, comfortable B&B. The room was large and sunny, the breakfasts were delicious, the garden was enjoyable and the owners were very pleasant.

Stayed here while visiting our daughter and family. It was our second visit as the accommodations are warm and friendly with truly delicious breakfasts. It is small and very personal. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a unique place to stay in the Oakland area.

Booked here because it was 1 block from our daughter and their brand new son (our first grandchild!!), but such a pleasant surprise. Friendly, warm and well equipped, we have a perfect accommodation with what are now friends. Certainly highly recommended, were it not for the charms of that new baby, we would have explored the garden and spent more time there. But we WILL be back.

Room Tip: Largest room is only $10 more - live it up!

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter and new baby granddaughter. The house was lovely, the hosts were welcoming, the breakfasts were delicious and the conversation was stimulating! The neighborhood was quaint and quiet, the rooms were clean and their garden area was lovely and quite the conversation piece. We definitely recommend their B&B. Nancy and Jason are truly lovely hosts.

My wife and I had a delightful stay at the B&B on Fairmont while helping our daughter move to the area to start school. The room was large, clean and very comfortable The bathroom was spacious and for those of us used to the low pressures from our home well, had incredible water pressure! Breakfast was sumptuous and freshly made each morning. We had some great conversations with Nancy, Jason and other travelers each morning. I'm an early riser and was happy to see that there was coffee ready even for those who greet the dawn. I very much enjoyed their garden, filled with local birds and vegetables. Altogether a delightful place that we will be sure to return to in the years to come.

We were here for two nights while visiting our daughter and her family who live in the Kelton Court condominiums. It was a relatively easy walk between the two properties. We stayed in the smallest room but had more than enough space. It was attractively decorated and had all the amenities that we needed. The shower, in particular, was excellent--not the least bit tight. The breakfasts were fabulous. The eggs couldn't be fresher and you can visit the hens that laid them--all beauties in themselves

The bed and breakfast is a short walk from Piedmont Avenue which has an excellent selection of restaurants as well as Fenton's Creamery. We will definitely be staying here again.
