Popping in Puddin Place Bed & Breakfast
Pulling in, the slush of pea gravel greets you as you arrive at Puddin’ Place Bed & Breakfast.
My greeting was a hair different, as I blatantly ignored good judgment and arrived without notice. While parked in their driveway, had to call and see if they’d be nice enough to let me poke around. (Luckily, they were)
Normally, I’m much better prepared, but in this moment – driving by, reminding myself of a needed visit – my hands and legs decided, wisely, to step on the breaks and turn in. I commended them on their decision.
Located at 1008 University Avenue, Puddin Place is steps away from the Square, the University, Rowan Oak, and even Chicken-on-a-stick Chevron at University & Lamar.
The bed & breakfast itself features 3 total suites (2 in the main house, and the third in a detached cottage). The main house separates suites by floor – the downstairs providing one Queen bed, and upstairs offering 3 total (Queen, Single, Single). The carriage house out back has a Queen, plus a mini-kitchen.
In comparison to The 5 Twelve, which oozes a Gramercy Park Hotel vibe, Puddin Place presents a more subtle atmosphere: Old South Country
Farm ‘ish. The eleven *working* fireplaces (yes, 11, yes, working), plus dozens of antiques help cement that vibe (for me at least).
Children are also allowed at the inn, which is unique for a B&B. Great news for families, but worth noting for the single crowd…
My impulsive visit finished with a flurry of photographs, featued below… enjoy!
