Notice how several of the reviews lead off with the word, "Lovely?" There's a reason for that. "Gracious" would also be fitting. That applies to the accommodations and to the proprietress as well. Accommodation: If you like the Craftsman style and the idea of living among beautiful things, then stay here. There's easy access to San Diego highlights like Balboa... More

What a wonderful time I had at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage, a lovingly restored Craftsman bungalow built in 1913. It's in a great neighborhood, close to restaurants on Goldfinch Avenue -- don't miss the eccentric coffee stand, Meshuggah Shack -- and up the hill from Saffron (on India), specializing in incredible marinated chlcken. And it's only 15 minutes away from Balboa... More

My stay at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage was wonderful. This beautifully decorated, historic home is spacious and so easy to fall in love with! I especially enjoyed the many antiques and the porch swing. All comforts were provided by Ms. Joan Crone, the very gracious and friendly proprietress. Joan couldn't have been more accommodating with regard to some reservation changes I... More

Crone's Cobblestone Cottage is a gem of an oasis just up the hill from the hustle bustle of downtown San Diego. As you step through the front door you are transported back in time to a quieter era that simultaneously stimulates intellectual curiosity and promotes physical relaxation. This handsome 1913 home has been lovingly maintained. The rooms are spacious, the... More

1914 Craftsman historical home in upscale neighbor great for walking. If you are looking for low key luxury, love books and appreciate vintage furniture - this is the cottage for you. Ms Crone is a generous and accomplished artist who shares her treasures and hospitality with style: Turkish towels, fine bone china, silverware and a hearty cup of joe. Kitchen,... More

This is a very well-maintained arts-&-crafts home. There are nice, little shopping / eating areas nearby, to both the north and the east. We ate at a different restaurant on Goldfinch St each night, and all were great. The house sits roughly on the Mission Hills / Hillcrest boundary, so some of the signage confusingly overlaps. The heart of the... More

There is a story behind why I serve a continental breakfast beside the fact that I don't care much for cooking. Just before I opened the bed and breakfast 23 years ago this circa 1913 house was made a San Diego Historic Site because of it's fine, intact arts and crafts construction. That meant that architectural changes could no longer... More

We loved, loved, loved Joan and the Cobblestone Cottage. This little place and its proprietor are one of a kind gems. Nestled in a historic San Diego neighborhood, it is the perfect place to unwind while still close to the heart of it all.

We still talk about the elegance of the space, the warmth of Joan's greeting, the perfectly beautiful breakfasts, and the remarkable collection of books, including Joan's creations. Great location, lovely walks to restaurants, terrific spot from which to explore San Diego, and Joan had excellent advice for places we'd like to visit based on our interests.

Six out of five stars!!!!! Joan does a fantastic job at her B&B in Mission Hills. I would highly recommend her accommodations. She is a very attentive and caring human being, even down to ironing the bed sheets. She is involved as much or as little as you would like. If you need your space, breakfast is ready each morning...
