This is a classic "old South" experience. The rooms are lovely, spacious, and old-fashioned without being antiquated (they have excellent free wifi, for instance). The hosts are extraordinarily friendly and welcoming, and the home-cooked breakfasts are absolutely spectacular. I cannot recommend the Crenshaw highly enough, and will certainly be back again!

This was my first time staying at a B&B and it was absolutely amazing. Sarah and Steve (the hosts) are so friendly and helpful--they made us feel like we were staying with longtime friends. We stayed in the Samford Room and loved it. Everything was very clean and the room was spacious. The same goes for the rest of the...

A couple of friends and I came down from NYC for the weekend and we weren't sure quite what to expect seeing that it was our first time visiting Auburn. We were hoping for a friendly place with some southern charm and that's definitely what we got and then some! We enjoyed staying in the Petrie Suite, which was nice...

Best bed and breakfast experience I've ever had; super welcoming and helpful staff (felt like I was staying at a family place). Snacks were available free of charge 24/7, and the breakfast was exceptional. You won't regret staying here!

The main house is full of history and it's beautiful. You can fell the history without sacrificing on comfort and modern amenities. Sarah and Jeff couldn't be more kind, engaging and accommodating. Make sure you sign up for breakfast otherwise you're missing out and don't pass on the snikerdoodles in the afternoon.

I stayed at this lovely B & B for three nights while attending a tennis tournament with 10 women friends. The house itself is lovely, with delightful decorations and large rooms. The two cottages behind the house were also great with large refrigerators and comfortable beds in good sized rooms. The owners were both very nice but Sarah, who was...
