The property is gorgeous! The homemade breakfast was over-the-top! Oh my goodness, SO good! Our room was very comfortable with all we needed. We stayed two nights. My only complaint would be the hostess Ruth. She was intrusive and over-bearing. Extremely bossy with my children and would complain to guests about other guests. I found this very unprofessional. She would...

This is a great BnB. Do not let the one poor review sway you (that person would do best to just stay at a Hilton). Ruth and Gene really run this place well. You feel totally welcome. The place is completely charming. They went to a lot of work to restore and convert this schoolhouse to a BnB. It feels...

While on a road trip to California recently, my husband and I stayed in this unique B&B after crossing the Canada/US border late afternoon on our first day out. The stairway that greets you inside the front door of this heritage school building is polished to a shine and the room we had was equally clean. It was very stylishly...

I can't say enough good things about the Northside School B&B! The rooms are comfortable, stylish and affordable. The host is friendly and helpful. If you are staying during the warm summer months, it has the best pool around. In the winter the hot tub is a welcome retreat. And the food — just the best! You will not leave...

A nice B&B with the emphasis on BREAKFAST...excellent French toast and quiche, fresh berries, bacon, eggs, coffee, orange juice to name a few. The breakfast is so grand, you'll want to stay another night. Oh, yummmmm.

We stayed here as part of an auction weekend and it was the best move I have made of late for travel accommodations. The place was magnificent. All the former are former classrooms in a school built more than 100 years ago. Wonderfully kept and lots of little extras (do not miss out on the cookies...I didn't and my taste...

This B&B is absolutely charming. The furnishings and floors are lovely. Walls are filled with interesting, eclectic art and period photographs. There are books available to browse or read. Our room was large with high ceilings, lilac motif, a very comfortable bed and antique toys and dolls on a shelf. Linens were exceptional and the bathrobes were a surprise and...

Had a wonderful stay here! The building itself is absolutely charming right down to the very squeaky hardwood floors. The rooms were roomy and beds were comfy. The decorations throughout the whole building were amazing. Pool, hot tub, walking distance to down town and Mother Hen Ruth was the most gracious hostess, making sure everyone was comfortable and taken care...

This is a very special B&B. The charm of the schoolhouse has been maintained. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were large. The breakfast was exceptional with lovely stories told by the inn keeper about having gone to elementary school in the very building.

The charm of the old school is completely captured even with the original blackboards on the bed room walls. Great collection of glass ware is displayed in the dinning room. But the greatest treat was being greeted and served by a former student Ruth. The splendid, bountiful, scrumptious and most amazing breakfast is prepared and served by Ruth in her...
