Lake Orion, Michigan12 contributions1 helpful vote
This place was overall, a wonderful stay. We were here for 3 nights in the Queen suite on the 3rd level and would go again. Warning, lots of text below. A flight delay caused us to arrive after midnight and we were worried that we would be charged extra (the normal check in time is until 10 pm). We let Gary know ahead of time and he was fine with us checking in late (you let yourself in; you'll receive instructions after you book). As it was quite late into the night though, it was hard to find his address. You'll have to look into the center of the front yard to see that the address is dimly lit (for aesthetic purposes) along the fence. To go further into detail, it's not straight on if you were to look at his house, but rather, you'd have to step in past the short entrance gate, walk a few feet, then turn your head left to see it. As we were obviously tourists with our luggage and bags, we were a bit nervous walking around the neighborhood at nearly 12:30 in the morning. It was truly, (nearly) hidden gem / hydeaway. I apologize for that terrible joke. Anyways, a busy neighborhood on Sat night/Sun morning can be good. We walked over street or two to reach the neighborhood of Little Ethiopia where there were still restaurants (busy!) serving delicious food late at night. Now, some things: I wish Gary had some sort of paper or email to let us know about the breakfast policy. We had read on TripAdvisor comments that it was like a self-serve breakfast and assumed it would be Continental like a hotel. We went to bed late (2 or 3 am) and woke up early (8 am) to try to get some food. Well, it turns out that the food on the weekends isn't ready until 9 am. We could have most definitely slept in. He was nice though and let us explore the house, including through the kitchen to the backyard which had a magnificent view and a mix of eclectic things (some Asian, some Greek), but tastefully done. There are lots of plants and the sun rises and casts very good lighting for taking pictures if you are one to share pictures on social networks. There was an in-ground pool that was not ready. I don't know if it will be offered for use in the future, but it looked nice. Next door, there was some construction, which I believe Gary is expanding to connect the two buildings together to be one. The breakfast served on Sunday (I assume on weekends) was bacon, a quiche (imagine a pie made of scrambled eggs and diced tomato), some muffins/croissant, Trade Joe's yogurt, and a bowl of mixed fruit (mango, honey dew, pineapple, and grapes). For drinks, there was hot water and some tea bags, coffee, and cranberry juice. We talked a little and commented that we were a little bummed to not be able to converse with others that were staying there. Gary said that the other couple had come down the previous day at 10:30 am and they'd probably be back down around then. Well, we couldn't wait that long, we had a whole trip of things to get started on! Here's the part that bothered me. The next day, we came down to get breakfast at 10:00 am and there was nothing there. We went to the kitchen to look for something to grab. I tried striking up conversation with the woman in there thinking it was another guest, but it turns out she was the maid and told us we weren't supposed to be back there. Okay, so I understand that most people working on a weekday would expect to have breakfast earlier, but there was no indication or instruction given to us about this. We just assumed that it would be at 9 am again and that it was fine to come down 1.5 hours later to get some food as the other couple did. We asked if we could at least just have a bowl of cereal and yogurt as that would be quick, which we did receive at least. Tuesday's and Wednesday's breakfast was much simpler compared to Sunday's (and I assume this may be what people may be bummed about): hard boiled eggs, cereal, the same muffin/croissant, cup of yogurt, hot water + tea packets, coffee, juice (this time it was orange juice), and a fruit bowl of grapes and sliced pineapple. Our room was spacious and for us, having a private bathroom and shower is a must. This one had a single person Jacuzzi, though we did not make use of it. There is a fan in the center of the room (not above the bed) which was put to good use. There was also bottled sparkling water and mints inside the room awaiting us. For entertainment, there's a tv with directTv which you can watch at your leisure on the bed or off to the side on the couch and the ottoman. We just chose to watch Netflix on our laptop in bed. Do note that the wifi reaching the third floor is rather weak, so don't be surprised if a Netflix movie before you go to sleep takes some time to buffer or is blurrier when watching. The location of the building is very close to one of the stops on the Green line for the subway. This is key for getting around the city and is only two stops away from Chinatown Gallery which connects to other color coded subway lines. There is also a very large and nice park about 15 minutes of walking away from the building if you want to just relax and people/dog watch. Looking back at what I wrote, it seems like I have a lot of negative things to say, which is not what I'm trying to convey. It was a great place to be, I just want others to be able to avoid some of the pitfalls that we had. Quick recap: 1. Weekday food is okay, weekend food is better 2. Location is great. It has easy access to late night food within walking distance and you can quickly get because it is so close to the subway. There were also a lot of Uber and Lyft drivers around, we only had to wait for more than 5 minutes to get a ride once, every time else was quicker. 3. The queen suite room was spacious and comfy 4. Gary is a nice, welcoming host 5. I just wish some info were relayed to us via email or in-person. I looked back and found that food is served at 9 on their website, but we never went to the website. We found it through Google maps/TripAdvisor/hotel comparison websites. 6. Visit the location during the day so you don't fumble around late at night trying to find the right place. 7. Probably the most important thing is whether or not a location is worth it. This building was! It was a good value and we had a great time here!

My husband and I stayed here in June 2017 for the D.C part of our US honeymoon (albeit a late review, i'm sorry!) Loved the location, the property, and the amenities. Bed was comfortable and the room was very clean (third floor room). The host was lovely and very accomodating. He was happy to suggest local restaurants, and attractions for us to see. Highly recommend!

Gary was a wonderful host. The place was very comfortable. My only complaint was the maid service could have been better, as far as emptying garbage and fresh up the bathroom daily. Most bed and breakfast offer this service. I do make the bed everyday. All in all we would stay there again

Wonderful old building filled with lots of interesting objects and furnishings. Only provided a help yourself breakfast. Owner was not there in the mornings so we basically ate by ourselves on both mornings. Enjoyed our room on the third floor but would have enjoyed more interaction with other guests. Lovely neighborhood for walking and lots of restaurants nearby.

Found this property while looking for a more affordable location in DC. The property is 2 blocks from the Metro, which is perfect for getting around. The owner, Gary, was so kind and really enjoyable to talk with. The breakfasts he cooked for us were wonderful and so fresh! We were scheduled for the smaller queen room, but no one else was staying the weekend we were there so Gary gave us a free upgrade to the queen suite. The room was really nice, and bed was very comfortable. The whole house feels like you've stepped back in time, but with very modern comforts. I would highly recommend staying here, if we ever come back to DC we will definitely stay again!

After we found the place and the place to park we really enjoyed our stay. The Metro was only a few blocks walk. Nice room and great Host. We loved the old style of the house. Only a few restaurants near the house, but both fine.

I got it very late and was looking forward to getting into the jacuzzi hot tub but there were bugs (silverfish maybe?) in the tub. I was determined, so I cleaned the tub. When I filled the tub, even though I had the hot water full blast, it was lukewarm. In the morning, they only had herbal tea and coffee. There wasn't anyone around to ask after some black tea. The breakfast is fine, cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, but no toaster. It was ok, bc at the last minute, with most places sold out, it was great to get a place for one night, and for a great price. All that said, it was slightly disappointing.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hydeaway B&B. Travelled with two kids and Gary was so accommodating to our family. We stayed in the queen suite, which was beautiful and perfect for us. It's a great neighborhood to stay in with restaurants and shops just a block away.

Hydeaway was nicely appointed, comfortable, and most of all, hospitable. Gary, our host, was helpful, friendly, accommodating, and an all-around nice guy- fun to get to know him and hear about his careful renovations of the property. Weekend breakfasts were lovely - ample and varied. Room clean and well appointed - fresh flowers welcomed us. Front exterior could use a little spiffing up - that's the only criticism we might offer.

Gary's Hydeaway was wonderful! The whole house has a very interesting decor, it's clean and we even enjoyed sitting out back by the pool. Gary is very charming to talk to and his two little dogs are adorable!
