The music to our ears we so frequently hear is “I slept like a log” and, “Oh, this place is so lovely!” The following excerpts from our Guest Books (going on 20 years of them) and Thank You cards (see our “B&B Love Letters” binder when you are here) we now call “Up Close and Personal Reviews.” Be sure to check out the Trip Advisor Reviews, too.

…and feeding us with your yummy breakfasts! We are sad to leave but we miss our four children. The three days away from them was almost too much. Go Bronco’s

I very much enjoyed talking to you and Jason and meeting your other interesting and congenial guests. Your house was the perfect refuge during the sometimes stressful wait for my new granddaughter to be born. Your generous and welcoming hospitality will always be part of my memories of this special time. With the new baby just blocks away, I hope there will be opportunities in the future for me to stay with you again.

We will miss the healthy, delicious breakfasts! We so enjoyed our breakfast conversations and the garden. Hope to return and repeat this fun experience.
The Two From Missouri, Stan and Becky, September 2015

Thank you very much for everything! You were so warm and welcoming/nice/friendly/helpful/charming. We really felt like being “at home.” It was a pleasure to meet you. Your house, the room and especially the garden are so wonderful—it is very hard for us to leave. We hope we will see each other one more time. Thanks for making our stay a special one.

Thank you for making our stay in the San Francisco/Oakland area a wonderful one and for your great recommendations.

Larry and I have stayed in a number of B&Bs, in the U.S. and in England, Scotland, and Ireland, but yours is by far the homiest.

Nancy and Jason, thank you for a lovely stay in Charlie’s Queen, gourmet breakfasts, and enjoyable conversation. O that we would have a reason to return to the Bay Area!
Taylor and Adrienne, October 2014

We thank you for mornings of culinary and conversational delight. All our best,
Peter and Dorothy, December 2014

This was our 3rd best stay with you at 640 Fairmount because we could share it with our 14 yr. old darling granddaughter from Perth, Australia , who made her first solo trip to the U.S. to be with her American family. She loved the Plum Room and we all enjoyed the delicious breakfasts along with your delightful company. It was terrific that she could eat vegemite on toast every morning!
Thank you for allowing us a pizza night at your dining table on her arrival day and for help facilitating a cab ride, herbal meds and helpful suggestions re: the neighborhood shopping and area wide attractions. We had such a great time. As always we love the amenities you provide and we are comfortable and at ease.
All the best for a happy and healthy New Year 2015.
Joan and Bill, January 2015

Thank you so much for the hospitable home, fine foods, and delightful dialogue that made our stay so cozy.

We had such a lovely experience. Hope to one day come back and see your summer and winter gardens!
