Your host, Bill Gray, has hosted hundreds of people over the years in an informal way, but now has opened his home to guests as a bed and breakfast. His passion is hospitality and he will make you welcome with comfortable rooms, good food, and a congenial atmosphere.


Meet the Neighborhood

The B&B is ensconced in a very quiet neighborhood in St. Paulís heritage preservation district, with a great mix of beautiful old homes, sites of historic interest, shopping, and fine dining. Itís exceedingly walkable and very green, with great gardens and architecture. We have visitors from the East Coast who canít believe the number of l arge, beautiful, and unique houses in this area, most of them from the Victorian era. Youíll also find brick alleys, and even a cobblestone bit of street, carriage houses big enough that theyíve been converted to houses, parks, statuary, and, if youíre lucky, people playing croquet in their whites.

Selby Avenue (three blocks north) was the place to shop and eat 100 years ago, and has become so again. Within a 7 block stretch youíll find several really good restaurants, an independent bookstore, a coffee shop, a co-op, an artisan chocolate shop, a couple of bakeries, a flower shop, a YWCA, and various other opportunities for retail therapy.

Three blocks in the other direction is Grand Avenue, the longest combination residential and retail shopping street in the country, and among the offerings of the blocks closest to the B&B are artisan ice cream, great dining, an art gallery, and a lot of shopping.

Summit Avenue (two blocks south) is truly a city walkerís paradise with broad sidewalks, plenty of trees for shade, and the longest continuous stretch of original Victorian housing in the country. The avenue offers the admirer a wide variety of building styles and materials, all in very good condition with plenty of period detail.
