We've been lucky enough to stay in many great places around the world, so we have very high standards, particularly when it comes to celebrating our wedding anniversary.
We wanted to find a special place that would be elegant, romantic and unique for the occasion. We discovered Mudville Flats on Trip Advisor and were excited by the great reviews and appealing photos, and its unlikely mix of baseball and zen We made reservations for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day and had such a wonderful time that we extended our stay another night. We arrived with high expectations, which were exceeded on all fronts, starting with the owners, Linda and Mike, who were warm, hospitable and helpful. They have done wonders restoring their craftsman interiors and have paid attention to the smallest details. Instead of an overstuffed frou-frou B & B style, they have chosen an uncluttered, more classic style. The huge bed is a knockout and the full kitchen was perfectly equipped. It was a pleasure to stay in the vibrant downtown neighborhood, with so much to see and do. Our host told us that we could park our car and forget it, getting around on foot, which is what we did. The only time we used it was on our last day in town when we went to nearby Balboa Park and enjoyed everything from the photography museum to the gardens. Overall we had a sensational stay and cannot recommend Mudville Flats more highly.
