Convenient and safe historic district location, Within walking distance of downtown Auburn, fine restaurants, the University Campus, and Jordan-Hare Football Stadium. We are 4 blocks from the AU Hotel & Dixon Conference Center, and just minutes away from Grand National and Auburn Links golf courses. All guest units are well appointed each with private bath, cable TV, VCR, clock radio, cassette player, a well lit study desk, and a computer data port. We have AT&T secure wireless DSL, Carriage house rooms have excellent kithenette facilities. This wedgewood blue B&B has been home-away-from-home to an array of guests from Nobel Laureates to Corporate Presidents, former US Cabinet Member, US Senator, and state governor. From 12-foot vauilted ceilings, to golden heart pine floors, late Victorian details abound. In spite of its convenient central location, this quiet one acre retreat seems worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Auburn University and downtown, which are only blocks up the street. The peaceful historic district surroundings recall a less hurried way of life. Our guests enjoy a taste of local history that no other lodging in Auburn can provide.

We are not one for writing reviews but felt we should for this place. Normally a hotel person but stayed here as a lark about 3 years ago. Now anytime we go to Auburn this is the first place we book. We always had great experience with the Crenshaw House and love the breakfast. Everything is there a person would want, value, comfort, friendly and accommodating not to mention the location and charm.

Myself and my teen who has been accepted to Auburn university, stayed at Crenshaw for two nights and had a wonderful experience. I got their info from Auburn Univ website and made a reservation online, as we were planning on campus visit. The owner is a great host and makes you feel at home as soon as you enter the property. The food was excellent. We stayed in the two bed guest house and it was cozy and comfy. If my teen decides to go to Auburn for his college, Crenshaw is going to be my 'go to' place whenever I am in town visiting my teen.

I stayed at Crenshaw House during a recent trip for business with customers at Auburn University. I travel often for business and have come to appreciate the personal touches of B&Bs. I have to say that Crenshaw house is head and shoulders above most B&Bs out there. The arrangement of the house, with the kitchen, sitting room, and kitchen area all on the ground floor with the guest rooms, and the owners quarters on the top floor makes you feel you have the run of the house. Several times after working late into the night it was a luxury to pop into the kitchen and have a piece of fruit or chocolate and a cup of coffee from the single-serve coffee maker. It was also a treat at breakfast to chat with the owner, George, who was a pilot for the Navy and NASA. He certainly knows how to tell a story. I was especially interested to hear the history of a tiger art print signed by Walt Disney and dedicated to the previous owner. Overall, I highly recomend Crenshaw House as a great place to stay.

This past June, a group of friends who happened to all be alumni of Auburn, had a reunion in Auburn. We stayed at the Grenshaw Guest House. The incredible service starts the second you walk through their front door! They show you your room, the grounds, and then let you know all that is available to you during your stay. We were there for 4 days, and everyday we were asked if we needed anything? Very attentive without being overbearing. The owner even let me use a free pass to his gym! The rooms are comfy, and big. The setting is perfect, and so close to town. If you plan to come to Auburn, just yourself or a group, I strongly suggest the Grenshaw House. You will not regret it. Thank you to the owner and his family for all the hospitality. We will be back. Best Regards, Phoebe Taylor
