We can't thank you enough for making our stay in Oakland so enjoyable. . . .We especially appreciated your “riotous garden” and the contented clucking of hens as we shared delicious breakfasts in your lovely kitchen. Jill and Peg

What a gracious entree to our daughter's new home town. I've enjoyed the dawn of two days sitting on the wicker chaise on the sunporch with my coffee and book. The company at the breakfast table and then—lemon souffle pancakes! Sigh and bliss!! Judy and Steve

We very much enjoyed our stay with you. 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. Thank you for making us feel more like friends than paying guests.
