Crone's Cobblestone Cottage is a gem of an oasis just up the hill from the hustle bustle of downtown San Diego. As you step through the front door you are transported back in time to a quieter era that simultaneously stimulates intellectual curiosity and promotes physical relaxation. This handsome 1913 home has been lovingly maintained. The rooms are spacious, the... More

I loved my stay in San Diego at the Crone's Cobblestone Cottage B&B! It was a wonderful experience! Beautifully cozy and welcoming cottage, filled with historic treasures and a marvelous collection of books. Situated in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, this historic cottage was comfortable in every way. It's also close to nice shopping/eating areas. I hope to return many many... More

1914 Craftsman historical home in upscale neighbor great for walking. If you are looking for low key luxury, love books and appreciate vintage furniture - this is the cottage for you. Ms Crone is a generous and accomplished artist who shares her treasures and hospitality with style: Turkish towels, fine bone china, silverware and a hearty cup of joe. Kitchen,... More

This is a very well-maintained arts-&-crafts home. There are nice, little shopping / eating areas nearby, to both the north and the east. We ate at a different restaurant on Goldfinch St each night, and all were great. The house sits roughly on the Mission Hills / Hillcrest boundary, so some of the signage confusingly overlaps. The heart of the... More

There is a story behind why I serve a continental breakfast beside the fact that I don't care much for cooking. Just before I opened the bed and breakfast 23 years ago this circa 1913 house was made a San Diego Historic Site because of it's fine, intact arts and crafts construction. That meant that architectural changes could no longer... More

We loved, loved, loved Joan and the Cobblestone Cottage. This little place and its proprietor are one of a kind gems. Nestled in a historic San Diego neighborhood, it is the perfect place to unwind while still close to the heart of it all. You can walk to numerous shops filled with coffee and gifts as well as a number... More

We still talk about the elegance of the space, the warmth of Joan's greeting, the perfectly beautiful breakfasts, and the remarkable collection of books, including Joan's creations. Great location, lovely walks to restaurants, terrific spot from which to explore San Diego, and Joan had excellent advice for places we'd like to visit based on our interests. It's been years since... More

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
