Description

Circa 1887. Adorning famous Orange Grove Avenue on historic Millionaire's Row, this restored three-story Victorian mansion is a cultural landmark that offers an elegant ambiance and inviting hospitality. Spacious guest bedrooms feature antique furnishings, tasteful décor and modern conveniences that include DSL. Linger over a scrumptious full breakfast in the formal dining room served with crystal glassware, vintage silver and fresh flowers. Apricot bread pudding, egg strata, ginger scones, crème brulee and lemon soufflé French toast are some of the popular specialties. Swim in the pool surrounded by lush foliage or relax in the gorgeous English garden. Visit nearby Old Town Pasadena with a small-town atmosphere and big-city entertainment, boutiques, and upscale restaurants.

Amazing house!

We stayed at this house for 2 nights (tired of hotels) - we were in Pasadena on business. The house is amazing. Owners are great and very accomodating. Very clean, quiet, and not far from Old Town Pasadena where they have great shopping and dining.

Bissell House Bliss

My wife and I spent a lovely, relaxing and restful few days here on a recent trip to visit family and friends. The Bissell House felt like a home away from home. It was clean and comfortable with friendly staff and a a delicious breakfast. We enjoyed borrowing their free DVD's to watch movies in our room, the fact that we could come and go at will, (no weird rules) and were left to our own devices. Private and tranquil. Just what the doctor ordered.
