    When the previous owners retired to CA, the B&B was immediately purchased by a young couple in their 30's. Brian & Stacy aren't gay, but they are very gay-friendly. They have hosted gay wedding parties, provide gay-friendly nightlife recommendations, and welcome LGBTQ and trans guests from all over the world.

    This was a gay owned and managed B&B. One of the guys was really nice and friendly. As a local, I've never needed to stay there, but I am in the neighborhood quite frequently. The owners just sold out and moved to CA. I don't know anything about its new owners or its current status.

    Tastefully restored and decorated, nice neighborhood. Rooms are comfortable except when the hosts shut off your air conditioning saying you like your room too cool (70). Breakfast is ok, lacking originality.

    Great Bed and Breakfast. Wonderful breakfast, lovely rooms. Owners are extremely hospitable and friendly. Nice location just 1/2 block off Jackson Square. Close to bars, restaurants and shopping. We have met some lovely guests there that have turned out to be great friends. Just a VERY NICE PLACE !
