We stayed at the Albion Bed and Breakfast one night in April 2014. Can't say enough about how exceptional the experience was. Like others, we got the full tour and it is amazing what Chad and his family have done to restore the landmark Albion State Normal School ( an old teacher's college) and convert it to a very comfortable Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Principal's Suite on the bottom floor - for a very good price considering it had a full kitchen and about 1000 sq. feet. The décor throughout was charming - loved the large chandeliers in the 'Chandelier room" upstairs and even our room had nice touches with attention to quality and detail. Although there is no restaurant in town (we ate dinner in Burley on our way there) there is plenty to do right there on the premises, including a library with many interesting books (lots of history) and we even had a mini-library in our suite. There is a game room upstairs with a Ping-Pong table - a large selection of movies is available also. Chad discussed with us the night before what we would like for breakfast and he didn't disappoint! We were surprised to have a hearty breakfast offering of fresh mushroom and cheese omelets, home-made hash browns (from fresh potatoes, which I've had about five times my whole life), fresh fruit smoothies. fresh watermelon, oranges, grapefruit, strawberries, toast, coffee - and great conversation with Chad.
We stayed overnight at the Albion Bed and Breakfast, followed by a full day (on full stomachs!) of hiking at the City of Rocks - about a 30 minute drive to the entrance from the B&B. The whole trip was wonderful, we will always cherish the great memories of that trip!
