This Tuscan-themed bed-and-breakfast—complete with a (shared) fully stocked gourmet kitchen—allows guests all the comforts of a top-notch hotel in a residential neighborhood where such rooms can be hard to find. The common area is small but well appointed; mahogany wood floors and columns, silk couches, and an enormous hand-carved banister add a regal touch. The bathrooms—with floor-to-ceiling marble—are spacious and decadent. Be sure to visit the grotto out back;
the bricks are from Italy.
