A Great Stay

4.6 on December 18, 2013

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.

Perfect B & B

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.

Delicious !!

Signature Dish

Hearty Miners' Pancakes
Comstock miners liked to make pancakes, rather than bread, as an easier choice for using flour. Our Hearty Miners' Pancakes combine healthy grains with nuts and fresh fruit for an unforgettable combination. We're sure the old time miners would have loved these pancakes. Served with berry compote and syrup choices.
