The room was very nice and - as mentioned in other reviews - the bed was extremely comfortable. I didn't make use of the garden area, but it looked lovely. Everything was as Cynthia described. Thanks, Cynthia.

Cynthia & Sue Ann were superb hostesses! The Writer's Room was quiet, clean and tastefully decorated. There was the perfect amount of space to write/work and there was a bureau to store items. Neighborhood parking was super easy and it was a great home base for exploring Eagle Rock. The house has tons of character and is kept immaculately clean. I felt completely at home during my week-long stay. I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and even sprinkled rosemary onto one of my meals that came fresh from their garden. Emma is an adorable pup and she was great company while I ate meals or sat outside in the lovely backyard. One big highlight - I had the chance to watch Cynthia perform a reunion show with her former band. Earlier that week, I had heard her quietly practicing a song in her studio and it was awesome to hear it in full force during a live performance. My entire stay was an enjoyable and unique experience and as a newcomer to LA, it was a welcome introduction to the city.

Cynthia's the perfect host, quick to respond to any enquiries and always there if you need anything. Her house rules and little notes make you feel comfortable being in her home. The room is quiet and clean and it's walking distance to local amenities. If you're looking for somewhere simple and quiet to stay while you spend your days and evenings exploring LA this place is perfect!
