We stayed two nights at the Grateful Bed when we were in Chico for a wedding. Everything was spotless, the room was beautiful and the food was great. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

The owners did a fantastic job during our stay in Chico. Rick was kind enough to stay up late upon arrival. Breakfast both mornings was fantastic. Carol really puts a lot of time and energy into each meal. Their hospitality was top notch, I'd recommend the Grateful Bed to anyone visiting Chico in the future!

Great Room, Great Food, Great Inn Keepers!

My wife and I live a few hours away and wanted to take a weekend trip out of town. The Grateful Bed was a great choice. The Creak Bed room was tasteful decorated and very cozy with a generously sized connected bathroom. The breakfast the next morning was delicious. More food than you could stand to eat and it was all first class. I would have stolen the basket of scones if I could have gotten away with it. All in all, it was well worth the money and we will stay here again if we come to a chico again. The inn keepers are nice and warm but not over bearing like some places which makes for a peaceful relaxing stay.

Truly magnificent stay

My husband and I had a terrific time staying with Carol and Rick at The Grateful Bed. As I said in an email to them they are both over-flowing with emotional intelligence. They anticipate your needs but not in a pushy way. I often take photos of food. This is the first time I've taken photos of my breakfast! I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

This is the best Retro Stay you can find Ina Victorian! Charm...

It is getting so rare to find a true Victorian and The Grateful bed is a special charmer. The back porch experience is one you won't forget after taking a walk in Bidwell Park & you really can find delicious quiet dinners within walking distance. As a couple we return here year after year for anniversaries, work trips to Chico and a different take on the seasons because the Innkeepers change up the decor as the calendar changes. Thank you for your beautiful service!

Best place to stay in Chico

We stay at the Grateful Bed several times a year and always enjoy our time there. The charming home is well kept and spotlessly clean. The owners, Rick and Carol, are warm and friendly and we feel like we are visiting good friends while we are there. Breakfasts are always delicious, hearty, and elegantly served. We enjoy visiting with the hosts and other guests around the breakfast table. Grateful Bed is a perfect place to stay--the best we've found in Chico.
