Definitely coming back!

4.6 on August 25, 2013

My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay here. We were desperate for a place because our plans had fallen through, there was a conference in the neighborhood, and when we arrived we had no where to go. The staff was more than accommodating when they heard of our predicament and gave us a cute little room in the staff's quarters. The house has a lot of quirky charm; it is definitely a nice break from all the super-new developments and construction happening in the area. I was not sketched out by the neighborhood as other reviewers have said, it is close to everything downtown, has a lovely outdoor area and the breakfast was delicious and prepared with a lot of love. I will definitely be coming back to this little gem.
