If you like to start your mornings with the New York Times and a full vegetarian breakfast with mouthwatering choices like rhubarb coffee cake and fresh, fruit-laden huckleberry pancakes, look no further. Built in 1904, this large Craftsman sits on a wide, tree-lined street a few blocks south of Volunteer Park. The spacious rooms contain an eclectic collection of furniture. The decor isn't eye-popping, but travelers who prefer a simpler, country charm look will
appreciate the B&B's restraint. The basement suite has a private entrance and phone line, a king-size bed, fireplace, and whirlpool bath. The Blue Room is the best of the rest, for its private deck overlooking the garden. One of the common areas is a sun porch with wicker furniture, where tea awaits guests each afternoon. A guest computer in the library is available to all, and free Wi-Fi throughout is a plus. The B&B is tucked away near the park and laidback 15th Avenue, which is lined with several great restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. A bus around the corner will take you straight to Downtown. Allergy sufferers take note: the owner has two cats.
