To say that Joan Crone's Cobblestone Cottage is "special" is to do it a disservice. In over 40 years of travel I have not encountered a more artful approach to inn-keeping, hospitality, good conversation and elegance. The Cobblestone Cottage cannot be missed by travelers seeking relaxation, quietude, and inspired art and literature. You will also enjoy a neighborhood with history,...

Crone's Cobblestone Cottage is a magical place. I preferred to spend my time there sitting on the porch and admiring the beautiful garden. The Innkeeper, Joan, is a very likable and special individual. She is equally happy to engage in a long, enjoyable conversation or to leave you to your own devices. (I enjoyed a mix of both). Breakfast was...

Notice how several of the reviews lead off with the word, "Lovely?" There's a reason for that. "Gracious" would also be fitting. That applies to the accommodations and to the proprietress as well. Accommodation: If you like the Craftsman style and the idea of living among beautiful things, then stay here. There's easy access to San Diego highlights like Balboa...

What a wonderful time I had at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage, a lovingly restored Craftsman bungalow built in 1913. It's in a great neighborhood, close to restaurants on Goldfinch Avenue -- don't miss the eccentric coffee stand, Meshuggah Shack -- and up the hill from Saffron (on India), specializing in incredible marinated chlcken. And it's only 15 minutes away from Balboa...

My stay at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage was wonderful. This beautifully decorated, historic home is spacious and so easy to fall in love with! I especially enjoyed the many antiques and the porch swing. All comforts were provided by Ms. Joan Crone, the very gracious and friendly proprietress. Joan couldn't have been more accommodating with regard to some reservation changes I...

Crone's Cobblestone Cottage is a gem of an oasis just up the hill from the hustle bustle of downtown San Diego. As you step through the front door you are transported back in time to a quieter era that simultaneously stimulates intellectual curiosity and promotes physical relaxation. This handsome 1913 home has been lovingly maintained. The rooms are spacious, the...

I loved my stay in San Diego at the Crone's Cobblestone Cottage B&B! It was a wonderful experience! Beautifully cozy and welcoming cottage, filled with historic treasures and a marvelous collection of books. Situated in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, this historic cottage was comfortable in every way. It's also close to nice shopping/eating areas. I hope to return many many...

1914 Craftsman historical home in upscale neighbor great for walking. If you are looking for low key luxury, love books and appreciate vintage furniture - this is the cottage for you. Ms Crone is a generous and accomplished artist who shares her treasures and hospitality with style: Turkish towels, fine bone china, silverware and a hearty cup of joe. Kitchen,...

This is a very well-maintained arts-&-crafts home. There are nice, little shopping / eating areas nearby, to both the north and the east. We ate at a different restaurant on Goldfinch St each night, and all were great. The house sits roughly on the Mission Hills / Hillcrest boundary, so some of the signage confusingly overlaps. The heart of the...

There is a story behind why I serve a continental breakfast beside the fact that I don't care much for cooking. Just before I opened the bed and breakfast 23 years ago this circa 1913 house was made a San Diego Historic Site because of it's fine, intact arts and crafts construction. That meant that architectural changes could no longer...

We loved, loved, loved Joan and the Cobblestone Cottage. This little place and its proprietor are one of a kind gems. Nestled in a historic San Diego neighborhood, it is the perfect place to unwind while still close to the heart of it all. You can walk to numerous shops filled with coffee and gifts as well as a number...
