We recently spent 3 nights at this historic bed & breakfast. John and Pam are incredible hosts and the morning breakfast was outstanding. It was so nice to fill out your breakfast menu the night before indicating what you would like for breakfast. We previously stayed on Union Avenue close to the race track but you pay about twice as much. It is a quick 15 minute ride to the race track and we definitely plan to book again next year!

This is an amazing place. A great mix of good taste, extraordinary service, impeccable rooms and furniture. Breakfast was delicious and a la carte. The owners are very welcoming and educated. I would call this my best B&B in the US.

Lovely immaculate 1800's restored beautifully completely furnished with period pieces. John is an attentive host and wants to be sure everything is good with your stay. Breakfast served on china and made according to choices offered. Beautiful location. First floor bedroom is lovely, though small. I would definitely stay again.

The Oakcliff Manor was perfection itself. My husband and I got married a couple days ago and this place has been heavenly. Everything in the house, from the furniture to the light fixtures has a sense of history. It’s like a miniature museum where you’re allowed to touch everything, and from the fainting couch to the Steinway player piano to the Amish rocking chairs on the back porch, all of it is beautiful. John and Pam have been so sweet to us. Breakfast every morning was phenomenal, and there are a lot of options. I had poached eggs and fresh squeezed orange juice. The view of the lake is unbeatable, gorgeous and so peaceful. However, the thing that really stands out is the care and service. I really felt like John and Pam took care of us like we were family. There’s so much love in this house. Highly recommended.

Fantastic. Oakcliff B&B is like staying in a very comfortable museum. The house, furniture, accommodations, and hospitality are incredible. So glad we found this place!

My overnight stay in this historic mansion was absolutely lovely! The home is comfortable, relaxing, filled with rich history and beautiful furnishings. Very clean, spacious and the bed was quite comfortable. John is welcoming, flexible to accommodate my schedule and serves a fresh, made to order breakfast. Wonderful stay!
