The Hills Bed and Breakfast is a charming, private one-bedroom suite set in the quiet, and serene Upper Rockridge neighborhood of the North Oakland hills. In operation since 1994, the suite is very comfortably furnished, can accommodate up to four adults, and has all of the amenities that make you feel at home. We are strategically located between Montclair Village, Rockridge, and Piedmont Avenue, three of Oakland’s most popular shopping and dining areas. Parking is located on site, and there is public bus transportation on our street.
Our breakfast experience is somewhat unorthodox for a B&B. Rather than serving breakfast at a certain hour, our fully equipped kitchen is stocked with a wide array of breakfast fixings, providing guests with a private dinning experience that can be enjoyed at their own leisure. You can dine in the kitchen, the dinning area in the living room, or on the deck overlooking our beautiful garden, with views of the San Francisco Bay. We offer a variety of beverages including coffee, teas, juice, and milk. We also feature homemade granola from Alice Waters’ Cafe Fanny, as well as fresh fruit, yogurts, a delicious locally baked cinnamon raisin bread, and Oakland baked chocolate covered “Biscotti by Suzy”. Additional items can be provided to suit our clients particular taste preferences. Gluten free products are also available upon request.
Free Wi-Fi high speed internet is provided, as well as HDTV-Cable-TV, along with a DVD player, a stereo, and a CD player. There’s an i-pod ready table radio/alarm clock in the bedroom that can charge your i-pod/i-phone as well. There are two well stocked book shelves in the living room that include books, magazines, and games. A third bookshelf in the bedroom is well stocked with novels that have been generously supplied by previous guests. Additionally there is a hair dryer, two terry cloth robes, an iron and ironing board, and a porta-crib for guests traveling with infants.
One of the wonderful aspects of life in the East Bay, is its proximity to nature. We are a short walk to Temescal Park, and a short ride to a variety of local and state parks that provide wonderful walking and biking trails for your enjoyment. Our location is also convenient for transportation to San Francisco, and the Napa and Sonoma wine country is less than an hours drive away.
