This was our third visit at B Street. It always feels like coming home. The accommodations are exquisite and authentic to days gone by. Not a single detail neglected. The hosts, Chris and Carolyn, are warm and gracious. Better than family! The breakfasts are absolutely gourmet quality, and Carolyn's special baked treats (something yummy is always available) are fit for royalty. I'm ready to go back right now! Thank you Chris and Carolyn for another amazing stay.

We loved our stay at the B street b&b, but we were disappointed that the town pretty much shut down at 7. We did see 2 places open for dinner the Del Rio and a pizza/saloon but that was it.We did go on a week day but this is summer!

We tend to prefer B&B's as they provide an ambiance that normal hotels simply cannot provide. This is especially true in places like Virginia City where it's not like you can simply stop at the local Holiday Inn. There are other "normal" motels in town but why would you stay there when you can stay at places like the B Street House? Chris and Carolyn were very welcoming upon our arrival and Carolyn was quite informative with her history of the home and its previous tenants. She also told us more about the history of the area. Even though we come to Virginia City once or twice a year to visit anyway, there always seems to be more that we can learn about the area and the history enchants me, especially. The home has WiFi and satellite TV in each room for those that need it. But honestly, if you're concerned about those features, maybe staying in a B&B isn't for you. It's certainly not important to us. Each room has its own well-appointed bathroom and they also all have their own forced air HVAC unit with thermostat controlled by the respective room. The latter certainly being a nice touch that isn't very common in our experience. If you're planning on being in the area, or are just local to the region, consider a stay at the B Street House. It's a wonderful throw back to a different time when homes were quite elegant.

Beautiful house very comfortable and relaxing. Right away you feel welcomed and comfortable. The rooms were spaces and large. The beds very comfortable. Breakfast was beyond words, it was so good. The house brings you back in the past.

There aren't enough superlatives to describe this establishment. It was far and away the best place we have stayed in a very long time. A really warm welcome and buckets full of hospitality. The renovation of this property is superb and an absolute credit to the owners for all the hard work they have put in. Every detail has been well thought through to transport us back in time. It's impossible to find any fault at all with B St. House and I can be very picky!! Carolyn's baking and breakfasts do little to help the waistline but my goodness, they are delicious.
5 on November 03, 2013
We stayed at 4 different B & B's during our recent trip, and this was the only one we can rate as outstanding in every detail. From the wonderful restoration that Chris and Carolyn have achieved through the fantastic level of hospitality that they give, this is a real gem. We will definitely visit again.

I am so comfortable here, I just want to stay longer !! The photos do not convey the charm of this home enough. Wonderful stay.

Hosts and owners are very friendly and interesting people. Great breakfast. Good location. We enjoyed our stay.

My mother and I stayed at the B Street House B&B while we were in town for a ghost tour. We were pleased with the character and charm of this house as well as how wonderful the hosts were. The room we stayed in was clean and the breakfast we had the next morning was epic! We were impressed by the awards the B&B had on the wall for the recipes Carolyn had submitted to national organizations for judging and we can attest they are well-deserved awards. We enjoyed the afternoon cookies and coffee and also liked that we could come and go whenever we wanted and didn't feel bad about waking up the hosts as we returned back from our walk at about 12:30 in the morning. Great B&B! Highly recommended!
4.6 on October 17, 2013
Friendly, clean, very nice! The breakfast was superb as were our hosts. The gardens were beautiful. Every detail was tended to. We will be back!

By far the best I have ever stayed at!!!!!!!!!
4.4 on August 13, 2013
I have only good things to say about this establishment. I stayed in Uncle Henry's room, which was fine for me. (It may be a little small for two people, depending on how much time you spend in the room; the other two rooms are bigger.) It was very nice and clean. The hosts are very friendly, and Carolyn is a gourmet cook. I've never been in a B&B that served such gourmet breakfasts before. I can definitely recommend this. As their website says, the stairs to the bedroom are the old style, rather narrow, so it wouldn't be a good choice if that's a problem, but I don't want to scare people off, either. I'm a "young" senior, and they weren't a problem for me. The location makes walking around Virginia City very easy, and they have off-street parking. If I go back to Virginia City, this is where I will stay.

I have had the privilege of staying in several Bed and Breakfasts in California and the East Coast. In my opinion none of them rank as high as the B Street Bed and Breakfast. Chris and Carolyn Eichin are delightful hosts, who do not miss a detail in providing outstanding service and hospitality. No detail to guest comfort is omitted. The room was impecable in terms of climate control and creature comforts. Our room was air conditioned, quiet, and extremely comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. Fresh fruit, eggs florentine, freshly baked muffins, sparkling fruit juice, orange juice, and coffee were the menu items offered that morning. Sausage, and vegan choices were also available. Chris and Carolyn were extremely knowledgable about the history of Virginia City. They were happy to answer questions and provide information about the history as well as the yearly events that occur in Virginia City. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone who is looking for comfort, value, and gracious hospitality.

Wonderful breakfasts, bathrooms modern and luxuries, bedroom comfortable and homey. Beautiful garden to sit in. Nice, central location.

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at the B Street Bed and Breakfast. The restored Victorian house was lovely and the hosts were superb. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Virginia City again.
5 on July 17, 2013
Charming, Homey, Authentic....just a few words to describe the B Street House. The innkeepers are wonderful and make you feel so much at home. Actually, it was like going home. The rooms are so detailed and full of character and very clean and the food is wonderful. Great time, great house, great city. I will return.

We spent our 5th Anniversary here. The Owners were very nice, accomidating and hospitable. She prepared snacks and meal to meet my specific dietary needs with thoughtfulness and very good. All in all it was very nice the history of the home was very interesting and well presented. Alot of love has been put into the restoration and excellent over all. We will be back!!

We had a wonderful time in Virginia City celebrating Independence Day and staying at the B Street B & B made it even better. Chris & Carolyn have put much love into their home and you feel it as you walk through the entrance. Carolyn's history lesson just was great. Beautiful room, yummy breakfast and meeting new friends.....what's not to love??
5 on July 09, 2013
This is a 5 star experience, Chris and Carolyn are wonderful hosts and made our stay in Virginia City a great experience. The house they rebuilt and refurbished is a museum in and of itself. The food they served was plentiful and delicious. You don't want to miss staying in this place if you have a chance!
4.8 on July 02, 2013
This B&B is highly recommended, beside it's beautifully restored and decorated historic house, the owners - Chris and Carolyn - were such nice people and gave us tips on what to do and see, not only in Virginia City but also along the remainder of our roundtrip. Carolyn made the best breakfast ever - not to mention her delicious cookies she served us when we arrived.
5 on June 16, 2013
We had a wonderful time there in virtually every way. The hosts were helpful. The food was outstanding. The night was quiet and lent itself to sound sleeping. It's close to downtown, so a walking tour is right outside the door. One aspect potential customers should know: all bedrooms are on the second floor which can be reached only by a narrow, steep stairway. It was a bit of a challenge for us with luggage since both of us are handicapped at present. Otherwise, it was lovely.
5 on June 15, 2013
We were so fortunate to book three days in this historic house. Chris and Carolyn were so nice and accommodating. We had so much food offered in the morning we took it in a doggy bag for lunch too. The rooms were so vintage. I can not fathom the amount of love sweat and tears that have gone into refurbishing the house. I know the spirit of the original owners are looking down on this couple with so much pride and happiness. So very cool.
5 on June 14, 2013
What a warm and charming home! The owners are welcoming. Very clean wonderful breakfast. Highly recommended.

4.8 on June 09, 2013
We stayed at the B Street Bed and Breakfast in Virginia City last week as we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. Chris and Carolyn were so very accommodating and have clearly taken great pride in the restoration of this building. The room was very comfortable and without a doubt, they put on the best spread of food and drink for breakfast that we have ever had at a B&B. They also greeted us with a nice cool drink when we arrived as well as some out of this world butterscotch cookies. No complaints whatsoever. Thanks guys!
5 on June 07, 2013
wer sich entschließt in dieser bed & breadfast Unterkunft eine oder mehrere Nächte zu verbringen hat die richtige Wahl getroffen. Bei Christoph und Carolyn seid ihr in sehr guten Händen. Man merkt sofort, dass beide diesen "Kleinbetrieb" mit Freude und Hingabe betreiben. Nichts ist dem Zufall überlassen. Virginia City selbst hat sicherlich schon bessere Zeiten erlebt; eine oder 2 Zwischenübernachtungen auf dem Weg nach Norden oder Osten bieten sich aber denoch an. wir haben hier einen Halt eingelegt auf dem Weg von SF zum Yellowstone NP.
5 on June 03, 2013
We have stayed at a few Virginia City hotels lately and this one has been one of the nicest, no question. The food was wonderful and easily enough to hold you through the day. Carolyn and Chris are very pleasant and happy to help. Quiet location, attractive yard. Come with an appetite please.
5 on June 01, 2013
My husband and I stayed in Virginia City for 2 nights while our son participated in a Civil War reenactment. We had a lovely stay at B Street House. Chris and Carolyn, the owners, were so welcoming and quite knowledgeable about the history of the area. The breakfast was filling and delicious. It was like being at a 5 star restaurant. We definitely plan to stay there again the next time we're in Virginia City.
4.8 on May 30, 2013
just a bit too much food at breakfast. Cut portions by 1/3.
5 on May 20, 2013
This was our first B&B adventure. We wanted to get into the feel of the historic streets of Virginia city. The location was perfect, one street off the main street, which was quiet and a short walk down the hill to get to the main street. The home has been lovingly restored and historically accurate for the period which Virginia City is famous, the Comstock Lode period of great wealth. Our hosts Chris and Carolyn are friendly and great Virginia City ambassadors. Their knowledge of the town's various structures and characters both past and present gave us good ideas of where to start our tour. At the end of the day the Room was a welcome retreat from all the exploring. A very comfortable bed, fine sheets gave us both a full nights sleep in comfort. The breakfast in the morning was delightful. A four course breakfast was awaiting us in the elegant dining room on fine china and the meals were prepared expertly by our culinary host Carolyn. We enjoyed our visit to VC and our experience in the beautiful old home of John Piper, the local Opera house owner back in 1863. The old home has been given new life by all the efforts of Chris and Carolyn's years of restoration. I rated 5 stars on every category, they desire our praise.

Beautiful B&B and Chris and Carolyn made us feel like family. Food was OUTSTANDING!
5 on May 15, 2013
Reviewed May 14, 2013 NEW We can’t say enough about this B&B. First, the house and rooms were beautifully restored and unlike many B&Bs the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Second, breakfast was sumptuous, delicious, superb and more than enough food. Carolyn is a true gourmet cook. Breakfast consisted of homemade pastry, strudel or a tart, fresh fruit with yogurt, either eggs made in unusual wonderful styles or pancakes, fresh juices, and coffee/tea. She also went out of her way to accommodate my lactose intolerance and used almond silk milk and bought soy yogurt. You could not ask for a better breakfast and wonderful service. Yet, the best was the friendliness of both Chris and Carolyn. There are wonderful host going out of their way to accommodate and assist you. My wife was doing family research on her great grandparents, early settlers of Virginia City. They provided wonderful suggestions on where to obtain information and more importantly went out of their way to do some internet research and help find where the family home use to be located. This is a special place to stay.

B Street House was a very big surprise to me. I always judge a B&B or Hotel by the coffee. If the coffee isn't good, it's likely the food won't be either. Both the food and coffee at the B Street House was some of the best I've ever had. The house it's self is beautiful, but to see what Chris and Carolyn have done to restore it is amazing. The Victorian detail they've restored is wonderful. My room was very comfortable and clean. The Innkeepers are very knowledgeable about the history of Virginia City and had great stories to tell. B Street is a wonderful place to stay. Jackie V

Although we live close by in Reno, it was a fun getaway for us to stay at the B Street House. We were delighted by the innkeepers, Carolyn and Chris, as they were so friendly and helpful during our stay. The restored house was very quaint and lovely and we loved our room (Sam Davis). We already look forward to our next stay at the B Street House next spring!
4.2 on October 22, 2012
We were the only guests for the night and had a very quiet restful night. The breakfast was fantastic and very filling. When we first booked a room I thought the house looked small but once inside it really opens up. The bedrooms are very spacious. Nice touches include special soaps, and chocolats on the night stand. I would definately stay again.
5 on October 22, 2012
Chris and Carolyn are the ultimate innkeepers. We were treated with extraordinary hospitality. The surroundings are completely authentic and lovely. Our room was so beautiful and cozy, and like the entire home, clean and neat as a pin. The breakfasts were outstanding, absolutely gourmet! We were spoiled and loved every minute of it. We can't wait to return. Thank you Chris and Carolyn for an amazing experience. Linda and Ira Gever

Virginia City is an historically accurate rendition of a famous mining town -- complete with museums and tours. B Street B&B takes one back in time -- yet has all the modern conveniences and comfort.

There is no doubt we will be staying at the B Street House B&B on all our visits to Virginia City and surrounding areas (short drive to Reno, Carson City and not far from Lake Tahoe). Wonderful host and hostess, beautiful restored home and easy walking access to all Virginia City has to offer.

My husband and I stayed the night at the B Street House Bed and Breakfast for our anniversary. The room was beautiful with a gorgeous view of the valley below. It was clean and came with flowers and chocolate in the room. The bathroom had every amenity needed, as well as upscale bathing needs. Breakfast was delicious! Fresh fruit and a wonderfully prepared poached eggs florentine with dill. We asked for suggestions on dinner and were steered to the Cider House. It was wonderful! Thanks for making our anniversary one of the best!
4.8 on September 21, 2012
This house is what we felt B&B should be. The facility is clean and beautiful with historical authenticity in design well maintained. Breakfast is out of words with great foods which award winning owner cooks. Nice table setting and pleasant conversation with other house guests with owners sitting together reminded me of the country inn in the old days. We sure will come back again.

We had only been checked in for a few minutes and felt like we were at home. Chris and Carolyn are great hosts.
5 on July 18, 2012
We have never been to a B&B as unique a The B Street property. It afforded us a unique opportunity to "run away from home" close to home. It was exciting to see the amazing renovation that Chris and Carolyn took on. We couldn't believe the committmant that made when we viewed the beginning to the end photos on the website. It reminded us of going to Grandma's house. They were wonderful hosts, and you could feel the passion as they showed us about the home and awsome vintage garden. This was truly a memorable occasion. Thanx

Chris and Carolyn made us feel right at home with 4:00 PM Tea Time. Carolyn is a great cook and had Gluten Free cookies and well as other. Our stay in the Sam Davis room was wonderful with lots of room and period funiture. All the furniture was well kept and in working order. They did a wonderful restoration on this building. We arose to coffee/Tea and a three coarse breakfast and wonderful stories. Our hosts are both history buffs and a world of knowledge. We will certainly stay again! TH & HJH

We are on a four weeks holiday in the US. Starting in SanFransisco and leaving from SanFransisco. Driving around in the Western part of US, as far east as Badlands, and south as SantaFe/LosAngeles. VirginiaCity was one of the places we wanted to visit on our vacation in the US, and we were so happy to stay one night at BStreet B&B. "A grown up couple from Norway"

My girlfriend and I had a wonderfully romantic retreat in Virginia City, and the B Street House was an integral part of the experience. Carolyn and Chris were such warm hosts, apprising us of the amenities, showing us to our room, giving us a little history behind the house, and allowing us to move about freely like family members (we even got a key to the front door!). The recommendations were spot on (Chollar Mine was super interesting) and the food and refreshments were delicious. Let me say that again...the food...was scrumptious! I can see that the awards hanging unobtrusively in the corner of the dining area were not without merit; the scones truly are amazing. The other guests staying at the same time as us were also intriguing, and we were talking like old friends almost instantly. What a great time! We highly recommend this wonderful home to anyone looking to retreat, relax and experience Virginia City.

Sitting prettily above the hustle and bustle of Main Street Virginia City, NV the B Street B&B offers its pampered guests a quiet sanctuary to get away from the rigors of life. Sweet smelling flowers greet you as your room offers many other fine amenities: private bath, gorgeous antiques, linens to die for, and incomparable food and service at every meal. Chris & Carolyn have put their heart and soul into this restoration and it shines with their love and attention to detail. All the sights and sounds of Virginia City, NV are just steps away from this truly heaven on earth experience. DebiLynn & Dean June 2012

My mother and I stayed at the B Street house for her birthday and we had a great experience. Chris and Carolyn were fabulous, food was wonderful and we were nice and comfy. It was all a true blessing, thank you!
5 on June 17, 2012
What a delight to stay with Chris and Carolyn......3 beautiful rooms that are spotless, very comfortable and with all needed amenities. Iced tea and cookies on arrival, a history of the house which was restored beautifully,a great suggestion for dinner, and a gourmet breakfast in the morning. I was sorry to have spent only one night and would return if ever in the area.
5 on May 31, 2012
Our stay reflected all the other positive reviews! The B&B has been beautifully restored - we got a tour as well as a tour of the garden and history of the home. Very cool to see the "before" pictures, especially of the upstairs as that is where the accommodations are located. Very quiet, wonderfully decorated and the bed extremely comfortable. Modern amenities artfully done so you still felt like you were staying in an historic place. Then there was bfast! Not the place to go if you are on a diet - each morning a completely different feast - basically a three course breakfast. So much food we did not need lunch! Home made pastries and scones, fancy poached eggs - you'll get a sense from perusing the menus on their site. Also very good wifi access and easy short walk to town. Wonderful discussions with other guests and our hosts. We'll be back!

The hosts were incredible, the history of the house is phenomenonal, the service was remarkable, and the location is prime. Go here! No other place compares. One thing I could say though is that if your are sensitive to ghosts then you may find it difficult to sleep but everything was amazing.
4.6 on May 07, 2012
Chris and Carolyn were very friendly as were the other guests. The room was comfortable and breakfast was outstanding. Location is just one street off of the main road through town but was very quiet. Definitely the best place to stay in the area.

The food and hospitality are awesome. Wonderful sense of history and close to the downtown area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go out of our way to stay again whenever we expect to be in the Reno or Carson City area. Well worth climbing the narrow stairs. Thank you, Chris and Carolyn!

Excellent stay, fantastic owners. I will be back.

We stayed here during Street Vibrations in September, 2011. What a great place with fantastic hosts. Chris and Carolyn have gone above and beyond with their lovely B&B. They've done such a great job with the renovation of their place. It's just beautiful. Our room was perfect with those extra little touches that made it special. Carolyn is an awesome cook. The breakfasts were "to die for". She and Chris chatted with us during breafasts, sharing the history of their B&B. Carolyn sent us on our way with the leftover pastries and with seeds from her garden, after giving me a tour'. We'll be back next year. Laura and Joe

We had a wonderful stay at the B Street House Bed and Breakfast! Chris and Carolyn were amazing hosts and really knew the history of the original house and Virginia City itself. They served delicious scones and a very tasty breakfast that was so much more than we expected. Thank you for a great stay!

This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast inn. We stayed here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The restoration job done was outstanding inside and out. I enjoyed seeing the attention to detail with the decor - the period being the late 1800's. The breakfast was very special and delicious. We are going to stay here every year for our anniversary!

Thank you to Chris and Carolyn for the wonderful stay at their lovely B&B. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated. Food is delicious. And the location is ideal in Virginia City.

Chris and Caroyln made us feel very welcome at their B&B. Everything was super clean and cozy. The food was absolutely fantastic! We were offered tea and the most delicious lavender cookies when we arrived, and were served an amazing breakfast in the morning. Caroyln is quite the cook, and they are greats hosts. The house is remarkable, especially after knowing all of the work that was involved in its restoration. Loved it!
4.8 on October 09, 2011
This little gem of a B&B located in historic Virginia City is nothing short of amazing. The owners, Chris and Carolyn, have a wealth of knowledge about their community and its history as well as the history of their beautiful home. The home has been authentically restored in every possible detail. The antiques are truly Victorian and the "sweat equity" in the renovation is incredible!! Be sure to see the pictures!! The rooms are private and all have wonderful views. But the most distinctive aspect of this wonderful B&B is the FOOD!! Carolyn outdoes herself at every meal... including the tea and treats served in the afternoon! I am not a cook by any means but I bought her cookbook just so that I can try and recreate her "lavendar hearts"..absolutely scrumptious!! Did you know that Queen Victoria loved lavendar and it was served to her at every meal!! If Virginia City is your destination then the B Street Bed and Breakfast is a must!!
5 on September 28, 2011
We were welcomed with cookies and tea, then given a brief history and tour of the house. Chris and Carolyn were delightful and just felt like longtime friends that we were visiting. Every room in the house including the 3 bedrooms were perfect. The breakfast was wonderful. We will be back again.
5 on September 15, 2011
Virginia City is a great place to go and learn about the old west. B Street B&B only made the experience better. Unbelievable attention to detail in the restoration. Chris and Carolyn are great people who love to make others happy. The food is out of this world good. I would definetly go there again and I would highly recommend staying here while you're enjoying the city itself. David Bakersfield, CA

After reviewing information about the various hotels and B&Bs in the area, my wife and I chose the B Street House for our 2-night 30th anniversary stay. We definitely made the right choice. I could write a book about this B&B and the hosts, but I will try to express our feelings in a few words. Chris and Carolyn treated us like royalty. The history of the house, the gourmet breakfasts, the afternoon goodies, the beauty of the property, and the friendship were more than we could ever imagine possible. This B&B is the total package and then some. The personal touches by Chris and Carolyn made our stay even more special. We will definitely return to the B Street House. We recommend this beautiful B&B to not just family and friends, but to everyone!

We had a wonderful time Very clean and the breakfast was amazing. This is the best B&B that we have stayed at. In our future trips to Virginia City we will only stay here

We really enjoyed our getaway to the B Street house. Chris and Carolyn were superb hosts, very friendly and hospitable. They have restored this 1870s house beautifully. It was very clean and comfortable. The evening cookies and morning breakfast were to die for. We plan to go back and would highly recommend this B&B for anyone visiting Virginia City.

If your travel plans take you to or near Virginia City, NV, the B Street House B&B is the place to stay. The innkeepers make sure guests feel very welcomed. The breakfasts are the best -- delicious & plentiful!
5 on July 20, 2011
It was a beautiful stay, location and service. The owners are gratious and interesting and I might add, Carolyn is one hell of a cook.
4.4 on July 18, 2011
My very first B%B experience; so much more enjoyable than a hotel. Quiet, charming, and intimate. Wonderful setting. A home away from home. Looking forward to another visit soon.
5 on July 17, 2011
We were so welcomed upon our arrival to the B Street House and felt very comfortable. The food is AMAZING!! The garden is lovely and the house is in walking distance to the main town. We were very comfortable here and the house was quiet all night. The breakfast and service was unbelievable. We recommend this house for anyone!
5 on July 15, 2011
Wonderful location, beautifully restored home, outstanding breakfasts and exceptional inn keepers. This was our second stay and we enjoyed it more than the last time, which is really saying something. Chris and Carolyn pamper their guests in a lovely environment with friendly elegance. Sitting in their garden is a wonderful way to spend an evening. We look forward to staying with them again soon.

Thanks to Chris and Carolyn for the third year in a row that we have stayed at their Inn over the July 4th holiday. They are gracious hosts and offer beautiful lodgings and a scrumptuous breakfast.
5 on July 05, 2011
We enjoyed our stay in Virginia City over the weekend. The B Street House is quite lovely and charming. We were treated like royalty and truly plan to return next 4th of July.
4.0 on June 29, 2011
Yes, it was. It was a total surprise to her and she loved everything about the two day stay. The restored home was super with every detail in place. Chris and Carolyn were exceptional hosts, cordial, polite, perceptive, and informative. The food was out of this world.
5 on June 28, 2011
I don’t think I can say enough great things about the B Street Bed and Breakfast. Upon arriving we were welcomed by Carolyn and Chris with cookies, lemonade and iced tea. We were given a tour and then shown to our room. We stayed in the Sam Davis room. It is quite spacious and the light blue color is very calming. Each room has its own bathroom which is a great perk. The bath towels were so incredibly soft and the shower head was just marvelous. Everything was so clean. Chris and Carolyn did a fantastic job of renovating the property and returning it to its original condition, or pretty close to it anyway. I mean, they even had the original wallpaper replicated in the parlor room and the original medallion hangs from the ceiling. It’s amazing how much they paid attention to detail when renovating the property. It was the home of Henry Piper. Our overall experience was nothing short of perfect. We were able to come and go as we please as we were given a key to get in and out of the house. We ended our evening fairly early because we wanted to be sure and get up for the homemade breakfast. I highly recommend not missing this. It was three courses and just mouthwatering. Carolyn has awards from Better Home and Garden for several of her baked goods. She also just created a cook book which has been printed and is on sale. I recommend buying that as it has 100 of her best recipes. You can purchase a copy directly from her. I can’t wait to try and make the Orange Cherry White Chocolate scones. Yum!! Also, be sure and check out the garden. They’ve done a marvelous job of making it absolutely beautiful. We can’t wait to visit again!
5 on June 22, 2011
We had our wedding in the garden of this charming bed and breakfast which turned out fabulous. Our room was very clean and well decorated and quiet. The hosts took care of us and even helped out with the wedding. We are fans of Victorian homes and it is great to see the care that has been put into this house and gardens. The food that they prepared was also delicious as they prepared lavender cookies which I have never had before but can not wait to have again. We will definitely be staying up there on our anniversary. Highly recommended.
4.8 on June 21, 2011
Our stay a B St. House Bed and Breakfast was outstanding! Before we left, we knew that we would be sharing this experince with others, and we have. If you are wanting an experience that exceeds the cost, this is the place you'll want to book.
5 on June 12, 2011
Stopped for two nights June 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Chris and Carolyn were great. I sure enjoyed the conversations with Chris. The food provided was wonderful. The room was beautiful with a very comfortable bed. Overall, I would give this place a solid "A" when compared to the many other B & B's I have stayed at. If I pass through Nevada again, I will not hestitate to stay again.
4.8 on June 08, 2011
Our recent stay at the B Street House was one of our best B&B experiences. Chris and Carolyn have lovingly restored this antique home into a most comfortable and satisfying inn. Carolyn, an historian, was full of information about the history of the house and the area and both she and Chris treated us like old friends. When we raved over the scones served with a wonderful and complete breakfast, Carolyn insisted we take those remaining with us when we left. We enjoyed those scones for several days. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer.
5 on May 16, 2011
We truly enjoyed staying at the "B" Street B&B. The rooms are SO comfortable and clean. We slept like babies. Virginia City is fun to explore as well. Carolyn provides fabulous three-course breakfasts. Chris is entertaining and knowledgeable about the area. Yes, we'd go again.
5 on April 05, 2011
Carol can cook a mean breakfast that will fill you up and make you want to come back for more! Chris is very attentive to all guests and we loved the fact that he shared his working victrola with us. You could not have asked for anything at this b and b because nothing was left out. Looking forward to our next visit!
5 on November 14, 2010
Chris & Carolyn are fantastic people. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. We are going to make this at minimum a yearly visit.
5 on November 10, 2010
This was our second stay with Chris and Carolyn, and we have thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality and conversations both times! Delicious snacks, scrumptious breakfasts, and lemonade that quenched our thirst delightfully! The rooms are cozy and comfortable and appointed with everything you need to completely relax and enjoy your stay worry free! Thank you again, Chris and Carolyn, for another memorable weekend! Lisa and Tim
4.6 on November 02, 2010
My husband and I had a fabulous time. The innkeepers, Carolyn and Chris were absolutely charming. They were about to close the facility for the winter, and they were still wonderfully accommodating. I am a native Nevadan and a Nevada History buff, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit!
5 on November 01, 2010
Our stay at B Street House was beyond wonderful. We were treated like a king and queen and the hospitality was down home. From the handmade quilt on our bed, to the yummy breakfast that was awesome. Such wonderful hosts and enlightening conversation with Chris and Caroline, were supreme. We would recommend this place to anyone and hope to spend time there in the future. We enjoyed the history of the place and our overall experience was outstanding. Karen and Doug Catron, Cocoa Beach, FL
5 on October 25, 2010
Attended an historic presentation at the B&B and booked a room for the night as well. Sam Davis Room was not only comfortable but afforded an expansive view east from Virginia City. Bed was extremely comfortable; bathroom sparkling clean/fresh and the afternoon tea/breakfast was great tasting and more than you could ask for. Carolyn is a wonderful cook and her baked goods were excellent. The innkeepers are very knowledgeable about the local area and we would definitely recommend their establishment to others.
4.0 on October 17, 2010
We stayed in the Sam Davis Room at the B Street House Bed & Breakfast. The hosts were very attentive to the details that made our stay so enjoyable. The room was delightfully decorated, clean, and had all that we needed for our too short visit. The breakfast was delightful, with everyone leaving the table happy from the wonderful conversation, and delicious food. We will definitely stay at the B Street again, when we decide to visit Virginia City.
5 on October 13, 2010
The Victorian place is absolutely beautiful inside and out. We were greeted by the owner Chris, and check in was a breeze. Fresh baked goodies awaited us and we were given the key to the home to come and go as we pleased. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable! Chris’ wife Carolyn volunteered and made dinner reservation for us and was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was a real hot 3 course meal. Fresh baked rolls, fresh fruit, apple sausage, potatoes, and eggs. It was more than my husband and I could eat!! Everything she “Carolyn” cooked was outstanding. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back there again!!
5 on October 09, 2010
We had an outstanding time at the B Street House Bed and Breakfast in Virginia City. Four days and 3 nights in a magnificently renovated Victorian home with the best and most enjoyable breakfasts we could imagine. We went to ride the Virginia & Truckee RR. Had a lot of fun viewing the historic town and checking out the museums. Truly enjoyed learning about the history of the home, the community and that part of Nevada. The pride our hosts shared in their home, the renovations they made and the community they enjoy was evident in every detail and thoughtful touch made for our special anniversary weekend. Thank you to Chris and Carolyn for making the weekend a relaxing and rejuvenating time for the two of us.
5 on September 30, 2010
This was an amazing surprise on our tour! Absolutely great rooms, perfect service, family-atmosphere and a huge and delicious breakfast!! Highly recommended!!! Heiko Beyer (Germany)
5 on September 08, 2010
The restoration Chris and Carolyn did on the house and the garden is absolutely awe inspiring. As well as being very personable, their knowledge of Virginia City's history and fabulous breakfast made our stay the best I've ever had at a B&B. I highly recommend B Street and will definitely stay there the next time I'm in Virginia City!
5 on August 28, 2010
I wish we could tell you to stay away from this place so we could have it all to ourselves, but we can't do that. This is the best B&B we have experienced. We are beginning to feel like family with Chris and Carolyn. We make our reservations for the following year on our departure date for the current year. Bob and Sue
5 on August 27, 2010
It was a marvelous treat to spend the night in this historically significant home, lovingly restored by the innkeepers. It clearly deserved the State historic preservation award in 2008. Future generations of Nevadans and out- of- state visitors will thank the Eichins for their vision and dedication in saving this important building and restoring it to its former beauty. As a B and B it is everything a visitor would want - a beautifully appointed comfortable room , delicious breakfast prepared by an award-winning cook, gracious hosts. What could be more pleasant than falling asleep to the sounds of tree toads chirping and awaking to the smell of fresh brewed coffee? Just lovely!
4.2 on August 25, 2010
Owners and other guests were fun and interesting
4.8 on August 25, 2010
What a GEM of a B & B. We stayed in the V & T Railroad themed room. Chris and Carolyn are VERY NICE FOLKS. This is a very clean and neat place, quiet, & peaceful. We enjoyed a very good homemade breakfast, homemade apricot scones, fresh melon and berries, great dark roast coffee, shirred eggs and lovely potatoes......and enjoyed the lovely gardens out back (nice in front too). No problem with parking. WiFi was excellent. Air conditioner worked well and super quiet, not being in the room window like so many places. It was hardly needed, however. What a GREAT restoration! We went to the Gold Hill Hotel for dinner buffet and a guitar duo, and that was OK. We are putting the B Street House on our 'must stay' list for all future visits to Virginia City. If I had to fault ANYthing with the B Street House, was that whilst wonderfully flavored, the apple-sausages with the bountiful breakfast were too much fat for my personal liking. Most folks would probably love them! I wish we could stay a month! Rob & Penny
5 on August 17, 2010
Carolyn and Chris were gracious hosts,friendly and down to earth. The rooms were tastefully decorated--think Carolyn has a special touch-food was ex- cellent. I wish Virginia City was a little closer to Texas. We both enjoyed our three days there. Carol and Leon Smoot, Universal City, Tx.
4.6 on August 17, 2010
Just off the beaten path (1 block) but plenty close to everything. The place was a gem - although it's an historic building (1875) all the guest rooms are brand new, with spotless bathrooms. The best breakfast I've ever had at a B&B - and the hosts are wonderful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
5 on August 16, 2010
The "B" Street Bed and Breakfast was one of the most interesting we have stayed in because Chris and Carolyn went to such great lengths to bring the wonderful old house that is their B&B back to life in its heyday of the late 1800s. Meticulous detail was given to every facet of the home during the reconstruction/remodel, but with all the amenities today's world demands. We had such fun learning about the house through pictures and discussions with the inkeepers, who were some of the most charming we have met during our travels over the last 20 years. They raised the level of B&B enjoyment through comfort, convenience and a truly elegant, delicious breakfast. We had the added pleasure of having our innkeepers all to ourselves as there were no other guests the evening we stayed with them, and learned much about them and the old interesting mining town of Virginia City. Chris and Carolyn have spent a great deal of time learning the history of the town and area so they could share with their guests. What a history lesson about the wild early days of the old west! If anyone is seeking a truly delightful B&B expereince, go a little out of your way and stay at "B" Street. You will not be disappointed. Curt and Patricia
5 on August 16, 2010
We had a wonderful stay in this amazingly restored Victorian house. Chris and Carolyn are lovely. Lemonade, afternoon treats and gourmet breakfast were fantanstic. The house and rooms had great charm and a library of books to read all about the history of Viriginia City. Highly highly recommend!
5 on August 14, 2010
The "B Street House Bed and Breakfast" is an amazing experience. The Owners go above and beyond to make sure your stay is comfortable . The rooms are beautiful and very clean. The Breakfast they serve is wonderful ! We would recommend the "B Street House Bed and Breakfast" to everyone and we are looking forward to visiting there again soon.
4.6 on August 10, 2010
Our family of six met at the 'B' Street B&B for a reunion. My wife & I have stayed at many B&Bs during our years of travel, and I must say the hospitality, the cleaniness & charm of this B&B is one of the finest we have had the privilege of staying. The only difficulty we encountered was the narrow & tall stairwell one needs to climb to get to the rooms. Our sons, their wives, my wife and I all had a wonderful time.
4.8 on July 30, 2010
The B Street House was our very "first" experience staying at a bed and breakfast. At first my husband was very reluctant and I was hoping that I hadn't made a mistake. My fears we quickly eliminated. Chris and Carolyn Eichin made us feel like old friends home for a visit. It was like stepping back in time to the 1800's with every modern convenience possible. We stayed in Uncle Henry's room. Chris and Carolyn met us at the front door with cookies that tasted like ambroisia! The creative restoration of Henry Pipers home is beyond amazing! Words just can't adequately express how delicious the gormet breakfast was!! Our first visit to a B&B was truly delightful!! My husband wants to go again!!
4.6 on July 29, 2010
Virginia City is living history, and the BA Street House is a way to live into that history. The decore of the house is authentic 19th century. In addition, the food and service has 19th century elegance and hospitality. An experience not to be missed!
4.8 on July 27, 2010
Chris and Carolyn are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed our stay in their inn very much. The restoration work they did on the inn and garden is amazing! Our room, with the amazing view, was very comfortable and quiet and breakfast was delicious. The extra muffins and scones that Carolyn sent us away with were a welcome treat for a long days drive through Nevada.
5 on July 24, 2010
We literally stumbled upon the B Street house in Virginia City Nevada. We have now stayed twice! The home has been lovingly restored in a charming fashion. The rooms are thoughtfully appointed and the bed is amazingly comfortable! Clean and quiet with individual room heaters and air conditioners. Carolyn is a marvelous hostess...the snack (usually a cookie or pastry) is heavenly...we are certain that the Prince of Persia could not have breakfasted any finer than we did our two stays at B Street house! Chris and Carolyn are gracious thoughtful hosts to every guest.....we enjoyed breakfast with the other guests who were also delighted with their room and breakfast. We consider it our special place to stay when we come to Nevada.
3.8 on July 16, 2010
The owners are very hospitable. I enjoyed hearing the history of the house and of the town. The owner was an excellent baker and has won many awards. They restored the house to look and feel like the original.
5 on July 16, 2010
The hospitality of Chris and Carolyn Erchin is evident in each detail. The restored home is a 'jewel' along with the terraced garden. It is the best of the Victorians as well as the Twenty-first century.
5 on June 29, 2010
Chris and Carolyn have made the B Street B & B perfect! We found nothing lacking! We highly recommend this Inn. Carolyn's Recipes for Breakfast are award winning and rightfully so! John & Martha A. June, 2010

You won't be disappointed at The "B" Street B&B in Virginia City - high marks can be given for quiet and peaceful personalized service and attentive innkeepers - a "wow" breakfast is served!
5 on June 24, 2010
Chris & Carolyn were awesome hosts. The decor was so charming! Extremely clean. Carolyn does all the cooking - and it's incredible - the best scones I've ever had! We will definitely return.
4.8 on June 11, 2010
This was our first time in a B & B and if they're all like this one, we would definitely do it again, and again. It was a pleasure to go back in time for a few days and enjoy the nostalgia of yesteryear with modern amenities. Chris & Carolyn were the perfect hosts with their warm hospitality. We enjoyed gourmet breakfasts and afternoon tea, including some of Carolyn's award winning recipes. It was truly our pleasure to spend a few days there.
4.6 on June 05, 2010
I had been to Virginia City in the past and was impressed with the little town and it's history. So I wanted to return and spend more time there. The town seems as though you passed back in time, so staying at the "B Street House" is must to feel the real deal. A block away from the main street and a century away from 2010, the house makes your stay luxurious and authentic.
4.8 on May 26, 2010
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this B&B. The home was beautifully renovated and extremely clean. The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable and the breakfast was delicious.
4.8 on April 04, 2010
This B&B is a beautifully restored row home built in 1875. Chris and Carol have done a terrific job on the restoration and are outstanding hosts. The gormet breakfast was great. My wife and I hope to return some day.
4.8 on November 22, 2009
Chris and Carolyn made my first experience staying at a B&B a wonderful experience. We met our parents from Southern California here to help them celebrate their 59th anniversary (we are only up to 8 years, and counting) and I recommend the B&B experience for this type of reunion and visit; it was like being at home - and not having to do the cooking! I loved the personal effects of family trips and interests throughout the home and while being welcomed fully to "be part of the family" we also were given comfortable areas of privacy. The restoration of this old Virginia City home along with the personal stories of the settlers let me experience the 'feel' of the times. Carolyn's creations deserve a standing ovation. Chris' knowledge of transportation in the old West (and elsewhere) was fascinating. We all want to go back to the B Street House when in Nevada!
5 on November 06, 2009
We were absolutely amazed at the hospitality of our hosts. The home was gorgeous, the food fantastic, and our room splendid. We have recommended this B&B to our friends & we will return.
5 on October 17, 2009
Chris & Carolyn really knew how to make us feel relaxed and comfortable. We enjoyed clean and cozy accomodations with great breakfasts as well. Excellent location for exploring the town on foot. Truly a great value. We'll be back again.
5 on October 16, 2009
We stayed for two nights at B Street B&B where we experienced heavenly accomodations (the beds are so comfy!) and scrumptious breakfasts served in 3 courses with plenty of coffee! I highly recommend a stay with Chris and Carolyn, they are top notch hosts with a beautifully renovated home. We'll definitely be back again!
4.8 on October 15, 2009
I remember seeing this place about 2003, before its restoration began. I heard that it had opened, so made a reservation at the first opportunity. I will pleased with the results of all the work. The house has been lovingly restored inside and out. My room was "roomy," clean and comfortable. The back window looked out onto well cared for landscaping. After a comfortable night's rest, the morning's breakfast was incredible. The meal was worthy of the five stars, and was generous to the point of comfortable fullness. No need for lunch that day. Virginia City is a great place to stop. Almost the entire town is within walking range from end to end. Restaurants and shops are numerous, and quite varied. The B Street House will be my place to stay when visiting there. It ranks right up there as one of the best B&B experiences I've had.
5 on October 07, 2009
We stayed in 5 B&Bs/Inns over the last couple of weeks. Our stay in B Street was the best! The Inn Keepers were friendly and helped us enjoy our stay. The breakfasts were unbelievable. They were truly gourmet. The Inn is a beautiful restoration. If you like small and friendly, this Inn is for you. Bob and Elaine from FL
5 on September 30, 2009
It was quiet, but had a friendly atmosphere. The garden & rooms were ebautiful. The breakfast was outstanding with gourmet fixings, freshly baked pastries. The best word to describe this place is "wow".
5 on September 26, 2009
Our 40th anniversary at the B street B&B was uniquely memorable. The hosts were warm and helpful and the food was plentiful and fantastic - way beyond expectations. Carolyn is a gourmet cook! We would strongly recommend a stay at this wonderful house. the glendes
5 on September 18, 2009
our first visit to a b and b. Not sure we will ever find a finer place to stay. The food was delightful but the conversations with Chris and Carolyn was my favorite. They gave us some wonderful history of the local area. Thank you.
5 on September 09, 2009
I first discovered this B&B by chance last year while on a road trip with my sister. What a find! On a quiet street in the heart of vibrant Virginia City, the house is immaculately restored with a comprehensive library of this exciting and historic part of the West. Chris and Carolyn, the owners, go out of their way to help, advise and assists. The three course breakfasts are sublime, really outstanding. Even the pillows are the best. I returned this year with my husband and found everything even better than I had remembered it. One piece of advice, save the B Street B&B to the end of your trip or you will be spoiled for everything else!
4.0 on August 19, 2009
A lovely couple. a beautifully decorated historical home. Food and company were delightful1

The home has been restored to original condition as todays living allows. The food is delicious but too rich.
5 on August 16, 2009
Wasn't exactly sure what to expect since this was our first stay at a B&B, but everything was wonderful! Very clean and comfortable. Chris and Carolyn have done a wonderful job of restoring the house and are very friendly and welcoming!! Carolyn is a spectacular cook as well!!!
4.4 on August 14, 2009
The breakfasts were amazing!
5 on August 13, 2009
This was our first B&B experience, and it will not be our last. We came for the location and the 100-mile view, but the hospitality was just wonderful. We're not big on breakfast, but Chris and Carolyn worked with us to help us enjoy every bit of our stay, including a nutritious (and delicious) start to the day, along with some great conversation. We'll surely stay here again when we visit the area.... Dave & Hazel
5 on August 09, 2009
My husband and I were absolutely delighted with our stay in your bed and breakfast. We have never been so pampered as we were for the 3 days of our visit to your home in Virginia City. We felt like kings and queens and were treated accordingly! It is our pleasure to recommend the B Street House Bed and Breakfast to everyone. We promise you will not be disappointed!
5 on August 06, 2009
Innkeepers Chris and Carolyn were attentive to our every need. They made us feel at home and engaged in lively conversation if we asked them questions. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable. Definitely would stay there again.
5 on August 05, 2009
We were welcomed at the front door by our hosts; served iced tea (on a very HOT day) and a tray of cookies. We were a given a tour of the house along with a very interesting history. The evening was very quiet. Morning was started with delicious coffee and juices with muffins and scones, followed by fruit and the main course of eggs, smoked bacon and delicious pancakes. This was such a comfortable stay and the innkeepers had remembered we had a food allergy and adjusted the menu around us. We definitely recommend the B Street House in Virginia City.
5 on August 05, 2009
My wife and I flew to CA for a wedding this July, then drove to Virginia City before we continued on to the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Albuquerque, etc. Chris and Carolyn of 'B Street House B&B' were incredible, gracious hosts. We stayed in a spacious, clean, quiet, 'cool' room on the 2nd floor. Before I could do so, Chris ferried my wife's big suitcase upstairs, unasked. Both were very helpful suggesting dining (delicious), easier ways to get to the Steam Railroad… just plain open and eager to help. They immediately felt like family or old friends. The next morning Carolyn made a too sumptuous and 'fine, delish' (fresh berries, eggs, chicken sausauge, etc. and fantastic, plentiful coffee.) breakfast because she said, 'we knew you're flying to Flagstaff and the airlines doesn't provide meals anymore…' and she didn't want us to go hungry. How thoughtful! Chris happily and not intrusively chatted with us during breakfast… Both were just the best hosts. I will recommend B Street B&B to all. (one other huge plus, is the B&B is on a quiet street just 1 block away from the main drag and hustle and bustle.) Hope to do it again soon. Andrij and Susan, Brooklyn, NY
4.4 on August 05, 2009
We stayed at B Street house for 2 nights in July 2009. The rooms were very clean, food was great, and the location of the house itself was very close to the downtown - we walked to all of the local events, sites and shops. I would stay at the B Street House again without hesitation. Excellent.
5 on August 04, 2009
The July 4th weekend was made especially nice due to the hospitality and culinary expertise of our hosts at this fantastic B & B. Before we left we made reservations for the following year!
4.0 on July 17, 2009
Chris and Carolyn make you feel "home from home". The house ghost tells its story of the past 150 years. Renovated to detail it gives the guests a warm welcome. Breakfast is difficult to beat! Excellent!
5 on July 05, 2009
Chris and Carolyn's skillful renovation of this beautiful victorian house captures the very essence of Virginia City's boomtown past. Clearly a labor of love, their attention to detail and historical context gives the bed and breakfast authenticity and charm. Along with this special "living history" aspect, we enjoyed Carolyn's wonderful gourmet breakfast and the warm and welcoming hospitality. The old Miner's Hall and Opera House are right next door, and we were but a stone's throw from Virginia City's C Street core. We can't wait for a return visit to further explore Virginia City's colorful past and enjoy this gem of a bed and breakfast.
5 on July 05, 2009
I found this bed and breakfast on line. We didn't want to stay at the Ramanda Hotel to many people and dogs. What a delight! Our hosts were great people and they went out of their way to accomodate the fact that I had to be in Reno very early the next day. The breakfast was to die for!! You must try this experience.
5 on July 05, 2009
Exquisite breakfast, period accomodations with modern amenities and beautiful bathrooms, a treat for a real western stay in the silver mine city
5 on July 04, 2009
The proprietors of the B Street house are wonderful hosts, striking a balance between attention, conversation and respectful distance that made my friends and I feel like royalty. The restoration of the house is faithful to the spirit of old Virginia City, but has great modern bathrooms, wiring, and wi-fi, which is free on request. It is a pretty, functional house and a relaxing place to have a vacation, if you are an active traveler who likes to go to bed early, and rise early.
4.6 on July 04, 2009
Perfect location, comfortable rooms, lots of history, excellent service, and more breakfast than anyone could possibly eat. We really enjoyed.
5 on June 23, 2009
We spent 3 nights at the B Street House, visiting Virginia City and the surrounding area. Chris and Carolyn are gracious hosts with an extensive knowledge of local history. Their B&B is lovely & comfy, the breakfasts superb, the location perfect for our visit. We ended up feeling like we'd been visiting old friends! If you like a B&B where you can interact with the hosts, you'll love the B Street House.
4.2 on June 13, 2009
After checking the internet we chose to stay at the B Street Inn. Inn keepers Chris and Carolyn made us feel welcome and were gracious hosts. The history and detail of the inn was amazing; the passion and heart of the owners was evident in every detail. Our room was cozy, comfortable, and immaculately clean. The gourmet breakfast was delicious with very generous portions. Carolyn scones were INCREDIBLE! I know it sounds exaggerated but we both agreed that they were the best we ever had. I may of mentioned my birthday when booking our stay; and was given a beautiful card during breakfast. Carolyn was so kind to wrap up the rest of the scones for us too take home. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back.

We were really impressed by the super job the owners have done in restoring the property and in maintaining the original appearance and structure where appropriate. The job of restoration has evidently been a work of love for history by real experts. For history buffs (like us) who want to understand better the old Virginia City, this has been a fascinating experience.

Wonderful room, wonderful food, wonderful people. Chris and Carolyn are two very special people who made me feel very welcome and I enjoyed their company and conversation. Reading the comments of previous guests from the journal in my room my heart was warmed with how many of them were there celebrating their wedding anniversaries. My stay on the other hand was on the anniversary of my wife's death, but there was no sadness only gratefulness she was a part of my life for many years. Thank you Chris and Carolyn. I shall return again to enjoy your hospitality. Smiles, Kelly Tomlinson

We have stayed in many BnB's across the country, including Charleston and Savannah as well as New England and can truthfully say this is one of the loveliest - we have never stayed in a room which was so pristine and tastefully decorated that I thought we were the inn's first customers! And the breakfast was beautifully served and more than satisfying. Our hosts were interesting, informative and helpful during our stay. I would recommend the "B" Street Inn not only to my friends, but to any discerning traveler.

The room was very gracious and serene with fresh flowers and wonderful period furnishings. The bath was immaculate with scented soaps and lotions. Breakfast was a gourmet's delight with Carolyn's award winning scones, fresh fruit, and a delicous egg entree. It made our trip to Virginia City a more memorable experience. We hope to return soon.

We had a great stay and really enjoyed the food! Carolyn is an award winning chef and breakfast each day included several pastries and juices. Then there was a fruit plate and then there was a hot entree with sides, generally an egg dish with sausage and potatoes. I really appreciated the extra effort made to accomodate my husband's aversion to eggs. Not one day did we eat lunch and even at dinner time we were hard pressed to finish our dinners. We felt welcomed and enjoyed hearing about the history of the home upon our arrival. Especially enjoyed the before and after pictures of the restoration that were contained within a binder of local information that was in our room. (Including what time breakfast is served in case you forget!) Chris and Carolyn were welcoming and were quick to help arrange dinner reservations and to help us with special requests.

The food at B St. Inn is marvelous. Carolyn is an expert baker and chef. Bring your appetite. And the house itself is also a delight: Chris and Carolyn restored it beautifully. They give wonderful tours of the house and have a book with restoration before, during and after pictures. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Worth detouring to Virginia City to stay here.

Chris and Carolyn were perfect innkeepers. Their knowledge of the historic value of this charming house and city was inspiring and made our three day stay as unique and enjoyable as any vacation that we both enjoyed ever! Now as far as the breakfast goes that's another story, and I'm a big breakfast person. WOW

This bed and breakfast is absolutely charming. Our stay was very enjoyable. The rooms are comfortably furnished and with period decor. The breakfast was exceptional. Chris and Carolyn are very gracious and knowledgable hosts. They not only know everything about their Inn but also the local history. We were amazed at all the work that went into the home to restore it to it's original beauty. It is locted just one block up from the main street in Virginia City. This old mining town is fun to wander around and look at all the shops and other historic buildings. There is even an old train and horse drawn carriage that visitors can ride. We will definitely return the the B St House.

I cannot believe that someone actually was able to see beyond the pile of wood this place was - and envision what it could become! And that it took only 3 years of hard work to turn this sows ear into such a beautiful silk purse!! The B&B itself is beautiful - the inn keepers very friendly, helpful, and informative - and my gosh, the food! Not only was the food wonderful - but there was so much of it we could barely do it justice! I cannot wait to return there someday and explore the rest of the sites we were unable to get too (and maybe there will be less CA smoke in the air!). And if they recommed Cafe Del Rio to you - go! The food is fantastic and that restuarant also has a wonderful makeover story also!

Absolutely beautiful! The hosts made the stay very enjoyable and the gourmet breakfasts were worth the trip alone! I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone else.It's true hospitality at its' best.

From the moment we arrived, Innkeepers Chris and Carolyn provided a wonderful experience during our recent stay. We were impressed with their attention to detail and warm hospitality. Their painstaking renovation of the Piper house was apparent with attention to historical accuracy in the decor and original architecture. The guest rooms and private baths were refreshingly clean and cozy. The expertly served gourmet breakfast was a feast, including a various choices of juice, delectable egg dishes and made from scratch scones and muffins. As an added bonus, we also enjoyed more baked goodies with afternoon tea. We highly reccomend the B Street House for it's charm, hospitality and peaceful atmosphere.

These innkeepers define hospitality. This was one of our best B&B experiences. The house is charming, food is good, and overall, everything was pleasant and enjoyable. We would recommend this B&B to anyone.
