I highly recommend The Brick Path Bed and Breakfast! Wendy Sprague is the caring host who knows all the secret spots (restaurants, shopping, getting around) within the city along with fixing a delicious homemade breakfast every morning…Fantastic Breakfast Jams!! The location is ideal, the gardens are enchanting, and The Fireplace Room was perfect! My wife and I will always remember...

My second stay at The Brick Path -- this time for 10 days for a family event in Berkeley. I stayed in the Fireplace Room and my parents stayed in the Master Bedroom. Everything was just as I remembered it from our first visit in December 2006 -- except better because we we able to enjoy the lovely back garden...

We're former Berkeley residents who came back for a reunion with friends. This place was perfect! Ideal location, quiet, beautifully decorated rooms, gorgeous gardens. What more can I add? All our friends---both the Berkeley residents and the other out-of-town visitors--trooped by for a look, and I think we may have generated a lot of future business for Wendy. But they'll...

My mother and I were in Berkeley for the weekend and stayed in the Master Suite. It was spacious ... the bathroom was fabulous, and the entire room was incredibly clean. I can still taste Wendy's granola! The location was also great - very close to Solano, where we had long walks in the morning. Of particular importance is the...

The Brick Path easily lived up to its reviews in Tripadvisor. Our room was large, comfortable, and quiet, and the garden was a wonderful place to sit and relax. We will never stay anywhere else in Berkeley.

My first time traveling to San Francisco on business was made less stressful and turned into a very pleasant and comforting stay because of this wonderful oasis! The owner makes sure the place is clean, extremely comfortable, and safe. And the gardens are just lovely! I am a fabric designer from Philadelphia, PA, and was in the area teaching a...

There are so many positive things to say about my last stay at the Brick Path that I hardly know where to begin. I stayed in the Fireplace Room, which is just off the main entrance. The room was beautifully furnished, spacious, and comfortable. The meditation garden in the back was lovely! The real suprise for me, however, was the...

Dear Wendy, Everything worked out wonderfully. Your cottage and gardens were the perfect haven for me. I cannot tell you what a peaceful and wonderful gift your Bed and Breakfast and you were.

Wendy keeps a lovely spot in a perfect location. I stayed in the Fireplace Room, by myself, while in town for business, and couldn't have been happier. The room is lovely in every way, providing solace and comfort at the beginning and end of each day! The room had a small fridge, in which she put my yogurt/granola/fruit breakfast for...

“The inn has three rooms. The Master Suite is perfect for a couple. The place has another slightly larger suite area which will sleep three. (I may have the wrong name for the room we were in, but just check the website.) There is also a room in the main house, which we didn't see. The owner says it is great for a single visitor.”
