Perfect Pasadena Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here as we often combine business & pleasure in the Pasadena area. The house is quaint, clean and just what we needed. Ginny and her son Nick are wonderful hosts. We hope to be back!

Felt like staying with family friends

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property while visiting our son for 5 days in May. The experience truly felt like we were staying with friends. Ginny and her crew were all so friendly and sweet. And having her dog, Buddy, curled up on the front porch added to the touch. The cottage is old, as is typical for Pasadena, with a very tiny bathroom. But the overall charm of the place more than makes up for the small bathroom. Kitchen has been updated and provided all essentials. The bed was super comfy and the living area had plenty of room for my son to come over and hang out. We didn't try out the pool but it looked so inviting! Another note regarding Ginny -- I realized about 2 PM while we were in downtown LA that I had messed up my reservation and should have been checked-out at 11. I called Ginny and apologized. She said 'no worries' and allowed us to stay another night.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We live just a few miles away, but were looking for a place to stay while fumigating our house. This was so much nicer than any hotel and is in such a lovely neighborhood. The guest house is situated in a beautiful back yard - the pictures don't do it justice! Virginia is so kind and welcoming - even allowing our dog and cat to stay with us. Our dog bonded with her dog Buddy immediately - he's such a little sweetheart. I only wish we had another excuse to stay here!!! Thanks Virginia!

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three nights at the property and had a wonderful time. The property is beautiful, and the extra added bonus of using the pool was great. The owner was very accomodating and helpful when we had questions. Buddy, resident greeter and all around good dog was a pleasure to have around. The kitchen is small, but tidy, and has everything you need to make a meal if you want. The front patio is perfect for a relaxing glass of wine after a long day travelling around Pasadena. We would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything Virginia! We feel we've made a new friend.... M & S 5/16/2017

Wonderful Garden Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

l loved staying in this cottage. Ginny is an exceptional hostess and her dog Buddy is a delight.The location of the cottage is perfect for visiting the Huntington Gardens and Library which are truly amazing. The Huntington is reached by a pleasant drive through an older, wealthier neighborhood that is lushly landscaped. Hope to stay again soon in this magical place.

Charming guest cottage

  • 5 of 5

The roses were in bloom during my visit, the neighborhood is quiet, yet the amenities of Pasadena are easily accessible, Ginny is a lovely hostess and Buddy (the dog) is a real charmer.

I highly recommend this Pasadena sanctuary and oasis of peace. Holly
