“Nice One Night Stand”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

We had a nice one night stand and enjoyed talking with Tom and having breakfast with him and Ila Rae in the morning. There are only two rooms and both have window air conditioning. If you like heavy coffee ask Tom to make it extra strong.

We stayed here last week on our return from a Mediterranean cruise. The flight was late and we're glad it was! We stayed in the Mission room (with vintage Mission chairs original to the house). I love the little touches of the past, from scrapbooks, an original tablecloth from the namesake 1930's restaurant, vintage barkcloth on the loungers, and so many more. The bed was very comfortable with luxury sheets, and the room quiet. But the best is yet to come! The breakfast is exceptionally delicious. Tom roasts the coffee especially for you, which is why he asks how many cups you'd like beforehand. Orange juice and grapefruit juice are fresh squeezed. Much of the ingredients come from the backyard organic garden. And Ila Rae, a former personal chef, is the hand behind your choice of gourmet breakfast. Both hosts were friendly and gracious and founts of local knowledge. When can we go back?!

We spent one night at this delightful B&B recently and would recommend it highly to others. The facility is very comfortable and inviting; while maintaining a nice meld between modern and period features. The only thing that exceeds the facility are your hosts. They make certain to assist you in any way during your stay. Breakfast was early, very tasty, and sustained us for most of the day.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Jenks House. Unfortunately, it was only for one evening, but I hope to return for a longer stay sometime soon. The house is absolutely beautiful, and Tom and Ila Rae were delightful hosts. If you are vegan, do yourself a favor and stay here. I have had countless bland or downright awful meals at b&b's, but this one was outstanding. A truly fine dining experience, down to the homemade apple syrup and edible flowers! The entire stay was delightful. Thanks!

We are happy to soon be able to call these folks neighbors. We decided to stay "in the neighborhood" on a house hunting venture, and while we didn't settle on the exact neighborhood, we've found wonderful local friends. Tom and Ila Rae are wonderful hosts, and their home is simply lovely. It's in a great neighborhood to explore the restaurants and nightlife of Riverside/Avondale. The room and sheets were lovely, very comfortable, very peaceful and relaxing- I took an afternoon nap- and the breakfasts were creative, surprising, simply delicious, and came straight from the garden (without a touch of guilt!). We're still getting used to the B&B experience but Tom and Ila Rae made us feel comfortable and welcome in their home of 37 years- so much so that we got takeout dessert from Biscotti's and brought some old friends from our first duty station back to sit and talk around the stove in the living room. During our stay, we encountered two other couples on "quick escapes." Clearly, this place is great for whatever the reason for your stay- but if you're moving to the area, I can't think of a better way to get a taste of the local hospitality.

Room Tip: The rooms have wireless, but if you want a TV, you'll have to ask Tom to bring you one.

One of the nicest B&Bs I've stayed at. The hosts, food, and home are wonderful. Home is super clean and nicely renovated. The sheets are ironed, there was fresh squeezed orange juice from the oranges grown in the garden, and lovely quilts, tableclothes and other touches.
