Great place to relax with a fireplace and flat screen TV. We chose to have breakfast in bed every morning and Sherri surpassed our expectations with mouth watering food! We WILL... More

I was friends with the owner who created the Freemason Inn Bobby Epstein but never stayed at the Inn. My wife "Michelle" and I are both in the Hotel Business so B&B's were never of interest. We decided to do something different and wow were we pleasantly pleased. The Inn has a lot of charm and the Inn Keeper Sherry... More

We've been returning to the Freemason Inn for many years, and have yet to be disappointed The rooms are large and bright (only slightly disturbed by the nearby light rail) with well fitted-out bathrooms and good A/C. A few years ago we had a large luncheon there, and the food was excellent, as was the garden ambience, but the breakfast... More

It was an unexpected brief stay, due to flight cancellation. Sherry was very accommodating. The room was lovely and romantic - quite a shame to be by myself. Surprisingly quiet, tall trees and blooms outside each window - completely "de-stressed" me and I almost forgot I was in the middle of the city. High 4 poster comfortable bed, beautiful fully...

Had a wonderful, relaxing weekend getaway in the Sir York Suite. Huge room with a very comfy bed and giant jacuzzi tub. Spent lots of time in the beautifully landscaped garden with the jasmine blooming, starting with an added-on bottle of champagne and cheese/crackers/fruit plate.
