“Very special B&B- great hostess!”
Reviewed 29 August 2011

Joan Crone's 1913 Craftsman style home is just a quiet oasis in the Mission Hills section of San Diego. The atmosphere is restful, as are the rooms. Her beautiful, renovated home is filled with antiques and lovely spots to relax. The library is wonderful, but the swing on the porch and lovely grounds are my favorite spot!

Room Tip: The B&B has only two bedrooms and both lovely and comfortable.

Crone's Cobblestone Cottage B&B is a jewel in a sprawling, crowded city. It is close to
all the main attractions yet hidden away in a quiet old neighborhood. The cottage is
beautiful with a large, shaded porch and old cobblestones creating a totally relaxing atmosphere. Joan, the innkeeper, is a wise and delightful soul. I stayed for a week while attending a meeting and missed many sessions because I more enjoyed talking with Joan. Joan will not disturb you but if you want to have a chat over a good cup of coffee you will better understand your blessings and leave with a keener eye. Don't forget to read the weekly thoughts that Joan puts out on her "Ponder Post."

Enjoyed four great nights at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage. I hesitate to call it a Bed & Breakfast because it was so much more. We had access to the entire first floor of a beautifully decorated historical home that will be 100 years old next year. The Mission Hills neighborhood was close to everything we wanted and needed -- shopping, parks, dining, beaches.

But I must say my favorite part was chatting with Joan Crone during breakfast. A fascinating woman with an artist's love for all things simple and beautiful. Her art pieces on "plenty" and "small" challenged me to examine my definition of happiness. Was not expecting a spiritual connection on the trip, but happy to have found it. Thank you Joan.

I hope to be back soon.

I'm from Brazil and this was my second time at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage Bed and Breakfast where I stayed for two and a half months. It's certainly a second home for me. An historic bungalow with lots of space, beautifully decorated. I recommend that you to take a look at the cottage's website to have a better idea of how charmingly elegant and peaceful this place is. Joan, the inkeeper, is one of the most beautiful souls I've ever met. At her studios, she frequently promotes workshops where she shares some of her fascinating skills in book arts. These are a must if you enjoy making decorative paper, small elegant books or unusual book related items. She is a perfect hostess and after more than 40 years in San Diego, she will certainly help you on how to better explore this marvelous city.

This is our third visit to Cobblestone Cottage, a wonderful vintage home in Mission Hills. Joan Crone has filled the rooms with beautiful antiques, and book shelves are filled with a vast collection of books from seemingly all topics. The home is on a quiet street out of the hurley burley, but within walking distance to good restauants and of course "book stores".

Breakfast is served in elegant old china with fresh fruit always available.

Quiet, restful, but close to all the fun of SanDiego.

We will come back!

Thank you, Joan,

Wendell C. Speers and Nicola Mendenhall
